WIAW - A typical uni day

I thought I would share a few thoughts I've had over these past few days:

1. Is every guy in Pretty Little Liars incredibly attractive? Why is this show so addictive? I've watched two seasons in about a week. And the girls clothes/hair/nails are always amazing. I would kill to have the patience and ability to make my hair all pretty like that. And what a job those girls have - they pretty much go to work, stare into the eyes of the most gorgeous men, and look scared a lot. I should be an actor not a writer.

2. Why do all the smokers sit next to me on the bus?

3. Why does winter make me want to curl up in a ball in bed and never leave? I didn't participate in WIAW last week because I spent all week eating an awful lot of food, not leaving my bed and not exercising. Both this week and last week I will have not exercised for three days and I will have eaten significantly more than I usually do - not a lot of bad, sugar ladden food, just a lot of food in general. Now I know this is my body adjusting to winter, but I have been feeling really guilty and cranky lately. The guilt is the worst. Do you guys have this problem?

I've decided to try to not worry so much and enjoy myself and if I eat, I am trying to eat good food. Therefore I want to know what do you snack on? Any hints you can give me about adjusting to winter - not wanting to work out because it is cold, and eating significantly more food, especially after dark? Anything at all will be welcome.

But I am going to participate in WIAW this week. I won't hide away, ashamed again. A HUGE thanks to Jenn at Peas and Crayons for hosting this party as usual. I'm sorry I never got a chance to participate last week, but I'm back this week.

Thursday is a busy day for me. I have a whole day of uni, and I usually end up with a headache about halfway through and force myself to stay. Especially this week, as I skipped out on uni other days and pretty much lay in bed all week. So breakfast was the usual - oats and honey. It wasn't pretty so there is no picture.

I snacked on some yoghurt throughout the morning until I left for uni at 9.

Lunch was this pasta - whole wheat pasta, leftover mince from beef stroganoff I made the other day, flaked almonds, mushrooms, onion, tomato, sour cream and lemon juice. There was no way to make this look attractive - but it tasted great!

I also snacked on some grilled chicken and baked pumpkin and sweet potato.

Dinner was something I threw in the slow cooker in the morning - slow cooker shredded beef from elly says opa. We made tortillas withwhole wheat tortillas, pork, cheese, carrot, lettuce, tomato, tomato chutney, pineapple, and avocado.

What isn't pictured is the three bowls of cereal I ate that night. Like I said, bad week.

But this is something I keep reminding myself, whenever I have a bad day, or a bad week: It's not forever.


  1. What a great way to look at it, I think that is something we all do. dwell on those bad times rather than realize hey, we all flub up! Those look like some great eats though!

  2. I seriously tend to hibernate in the winter so I know how you feel!
