Morning! :) I hope everyone is up and at ’em this morning! It’s Tuesday!!
I will be honest with you, yesterday was kind of a low day for me. Do you ever have those days? I am not sure what it was, or if it was anything in particular. Sometimes it’s a combination of things that just seem overwhelming. I have battled depression in my past, and sometimes struggle with thoughts of self-doubt and sadness. I have so much to be thankful for and I have a lot of people who love me and I love them, so how can I be down?
This was part of my devotion that I read this morning: “Hope in Me, and you will be protected from depression and self-pity.”
It also referenced this passage of Scripture.
Romans 12:12 “rejoicing in hope, patient in tribulation, continuing steadfastly in prayer.”
Anyway, I just wanted to share that with you.
Since I had class last night, dinner was super fast…………..and early. I did decide to go with the smoothie. The best thing about smoothies is that you can pack them with nutrients!
- 1/2 frozen banana
- 3/4 cup of frozen blueberries
- 1 scoop of chocolate whey protein powder
- 1 tbls carob powder
- 1 tsp chia seeds
- 1 cup of 35 cal Almond milk
- 1 handful of spinach
While in class, my stomach started to grumble, so I grabbed a Larabar that I have been carrying around for about a week now. (I try to keep at least something in my purse just in case.)
Umm, yeah, I finally found something that I don’t like. I took one bite and that was it. I didn’t really care for the texture. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE Larabar’s, but this one didn’t overwhelm me at all.
I woke up wanting some oatmeal this morning!
In the mix:
- 1/4 cup of water
- 1/2 cup of 35 cal Almond milk
- 1/3 + 2 tbls of Gluten free Old Fashion oats
- 1 tsp chia seeds
- 1 tbls of Peanut butter
- 1 tsp of Truvia
This should hold me over until lunch :)
Last night at class we received our first take-home test, so I will be studying this week and getting that taken care of by next Monday. Which leads me to a question. How do you study? Can you study with noise around you or does it have to be quiet?
For myself, it has to be quiet. 😉
You guys have a great day!!
