Public service announcement of the day: canned chunk light tuna is really delicious when mixed with hummus.
Since I know you guys were wondering and all.
For lunch today, I whipped up tuna sandwiches for myself and Matt — just chunk light tuna mixed with hummus and some dijon mustard — it’s delicious, I promise. Topped with sprouts and some mixed greens.
With a side of baby carrots and a pickle, plus some strawberries to share:
In other news, I did something out of the ordinary this morning — I packed breakfast! Usually, I eat breakfast at home before I leave for the day — most of the time while writing/publishing my blog post.
I had an appointment early this morning with Campus Health to have blood drawn, so I wasn’t supposed to eat beforehand. Don’t worry, nothing’s wrong — I’ve just never had labs run before and I thought it would be interesting to see all my levels since I actually understand what everything means now given all the biochem and medical nutrition therapy classes I’ve had! We can get a metabolic panel test done for free with our student insurance, so I figured why not.
Anyway — I packed breakfast to eat right after the appointment. Hungry Anne = not a good time.
I threw some Greek yogurt (I would have used plain, but we are all out) and a bunch of berries in a tupperware, topped with some hemp seeds for a little extra staying power. Hemp seeds are a great source of essential fatty acids — and protein!
I also packed some cereal in a baggie — this way it wouldn’t get soggy before I was ready to eat.
Plus my usual portable tea mug with a tea bag ready to go! Just add water. This comes with me to school every day.
All together now!
After my appointment this morning, I had a three hour group meeting with some classmates to bang out an assignment/presentation we have due Monday. It was efficient AND we had fun joking around while working on it — win.
Now I’m getting a few more things done for school and getting ready to enjoy Friday night! Thanks for all your advice on my “To PR or not to PR?” post yesterday — I’ve decided that I’m going to start out the race with the aim of getting a new PR, and if I’m feeling good (but still enjoying myself), then I’ll continue to go for it. If the hills are too much or I’m totally not feeling it, I’ll dial it back and just enjoy the scenery. Either way, the main goal is just to have fun. A PR would just be icing on the cake.
I went and picked up my bib and shirt (love the Carolina blue!) this afternoon, so I’m ready to rock. See you in the morning, Tarheel 10 Miler!
