Calculus and Food.
Happy Saturday Blogging BFFS!
I got a few questions about my 50 page paper so I thought I would give you a “light” overview of it. It’s basically a culmination of all my education classes together, presetudent teaching information. I have to provide worksheets I’ve created, my interests in math, my career at college, anything and everything about math and education. Basically why I want to be a math teacher.
I don’t want to be a math teacher.
This would be extremely useful for later if I did, but seeing as it is 50% (yes ½ of my entire grade in the class) I still need to do it because failing the class isn’t really my jive..
I chose to change my major so I’m not complaining. Besides-it’s not awful, it’s not like I’m writing a 50 page proof. Dear God help me now.
Oh wait (round 2)
I’m doing that too. My homework for advanced calculus is one problem. This is ½ of it.
So yes-I have been terribly busy and not okay with it.
But enough complaining only one more week of classes.
But back to my last couple of days. I have really been into my inner foodie by eating on campus and preparing decently photogenic meals….
Broccoli quiche and wheatberry salad
“Adirondack Salad”=Greens, cranberries, walnuts, goat cheese, chicken breast salad.
Fondue (is the greatest thing to ever go in my belly)
I made the greatest chocolate waffle this morning, or at least it was 10:00am and I don’t know the last time I have eaten past 8:00am so I think I was just starving.
Chocolate waffle+homemade strawberry jam
(Home made strawberry jam)
Enough strawberries to fit into your magic bullet/blender
1 tsp xanthium gum
¼ cup water
Sweetener if you are into that
I’m not savvy enough to stuff my own mushrooms so I bought them at the local supermarket. I love stuffed mushrooms and all kinds of mushrooms actually.
Speaking of the supermarket, yesterday I went and saved 12 dollars on a 35 dollar purchase. Seriously-I felt like an extreme couponer…minus I just looked for instore deals and had one coupon. In fact, I got a giant package of bacon (for spinach bacon waffles) for 79 cents.
But they were out of kale. ugh.
Yesterday, I decided that I was going to skip the Arctrainer.
Don’t be too shocked! I was just completely not in the mood at all. I kept telling myself it was okay but it was kinda in the back of my mind. Skipping a workout, my endurance is done, I’ll never run quickly again, blah blah blah.
But then this morning I ran. 7.3 miles at nearly a 7 minute pace.
So I’m not devastated anymore..not that I really was yesterday.
Take your rest days. Your legs will love you for it.
PS: Get your Q’s in for my next FAQ post. If you have any…I don’t have too many secrets.
Question for you:
Are you a big couponer?
