I guess it's only appropriate to write a post called Tuesday Truths now? ;)
Truth #1: I'm Done My Research Paper
I had to write a research paper for my Community Nutrition course and I am proud to say that I put my heart and soul into it! :) I have spent many nights typing away while sipping on tea…
Truth #2: Truth #1 was a Lie
Ok, so I'm not totally done my research paper. I still have to work on those references… Ugh. After I publish this post I'll get right on that…
Truth #3: Every Day I Return From Class I Have No Nail Polish Left on My Nails
When I get stressed, I pick all of the nail polish off of my nails. I have re-painted my nails every night for as long as I can remember…
Truth #4: I've Spent More Hours on FaceTime Than Ever Before This Past Weekend
Due to high stress levels stemming from school, I've needed my Mommy more than ever and she has definitely delivered her support. We've been FaceTiming for hours upon hours with each other. Technology is such a blessing <3
Truth #5: I'm Addicted to These Pickled Jalapenos
I've been loving them in salads, scrambled eggs, and alone. Yum.
Truth #6: I've Had the Same Lunch Two Days in a Row
Despite my preference for variety, I couldn't help myself but have this salad two days in a row. It is so good. Please try it.
Spinach, black beans, mushrooms, red onion, avocado, pickled jalapenos (obviously), fresh dill, chicken, and BBQ sauce!
You can also take a vegetarian spin on this salad, too! Just leave out the chicken!
Truth #7: I Took Pictures of My Salad Yesterday While in Class and the Sound Went Off
I couldn't help myself. When something is this incredibly delicious, I have to take a picture. Unfortunately, the sound on my phone wasn't turned off… Oops.
Truth #8: I Baked My Chicken Plain
Now if this isn't the definition of lazy or uncreative I don't know what is…
Naked chicken breasts baked at 425 degrees F until fully cooked. Someone who doesn't know me would have know idea that I'm a foodie by the looks of that…
Truth #9: Yesterday Was the First Day in Forever that I Never Went to DAVIDsTEA
Now that is called discipline, friends! Don't worry… I was sipping on DAVIDsTEA at home (and in class) all day ;)
Truth #10: I Set a New PR
This PR wasn't set in the gym, though. I set a new personal record for the amount of days I went without blogging. I went a total of three days without blogging and, as hard as it was, it was so necessary and fulfilling. When I blog, I don't want to whip out a post "just because." I want to give you something. I want to blog because I have something to say. I want to blog when life allows me to blog. I would have never been able to complete my research paper on time if I had blogged all weekend, so I am really proud of myself for taking some time off :)
Tell me a truth of yours!
When you get stressed how do you cope? Do you turn to your Mom?
