Happy Wednesday! Halfway through the week and halfway through finals! Speaking of finals, do any of you like having visual things that keep you motivated? Well when I started to feel very overwhelmed with outlining the whole semester of Tax, I made a list of all the chapters and checked them off as I went! Here is where I was Monday Night!

It really helped me visualize where I was and how far I had to go! It made me feel like I was actually accomplishing something!



So today is Wednesday, and you know what that means!

Another installment of WIAW!!! If you’re new to WIAW, head on over to Peas and Crayons for an explanation. It’s a great way to find new blogs and get some meal and snack ideas!

For breakfast, I finally got what I’ve been waiting for:


If you haven’t seen this before, what you do is wait until your nut butter jar is almost completely empty, then you take your normal oatmeal and pour it into the jar, melting the nut butter that’s still in there!

Plus it’s just fun.

In the mix: 1/3 cup oats, 1/3 cup almond milk, 1/3 cup water, 6 T egg whites, cinnamon, and some dried cranberries!

Some people like to do overnight oats in a jar, but personally I like ‘em hot so it melts the peanut butter.


A while after breakfast, I headed to the gym to get in a run. I had a final that night and needed to get out some anxiety!

I ended up running 6 miles with intervals: the first mile at 6.8, the second at 7.5 and then switching back and forth until I was done! Finished the 6 miles in 50:44 for an 8:27 min/mile pace. And can you believe it: I ended up on the funky treadmill again. Without a doubt, right before mile 4 it started switching speeds all on its own! I though I’d picked the one next to it… but no.


On my way back, I was ready to get studying but I was also starving! I decided to stop off and grab a greek salad with chicken from a local place. It is SO GOOD!!! And I was in serious need of veggies…

After studying for a while longer, I made myself an afternoon snack of an apple and some Greek yogurt with cinnamon mixed in.

And then it was off to school! I got there a little early so I could pick up something to eat before the exam (it started at 6) and also print out some things.

I decided to stop at the Protein Bar, which I have RAVED about many times, and grab their quinoa vegetarian chili bowl, topped with some cheddar cheese and a dollop of Greek yogurt. If you live in the area, check out my reviews of the protein bar on my review page!

Of course, by the time I actually reached school with it, it had tipped over a bit. But still tasted delicious.

After I ate, I walked around the building a bit to calm my nerves and let my food digest, then it was final taking time! Luckily this final was only 3 hours, so I was out of there at 9 and on the bus!

When I got home I was pretty hungry, so I threw together a sampler platter for “dessert” slash second dinner… It included greek yogurt mixed with cinnamon, canned pumpkin mixed with almond milk, cinnamon and nutmeg, and a protein muffin! This time I made the banana chocolate chip! So good…

I know, I know, the picture is recycled.  But I promise, it basically looks the same! And trust me, at 9:45pm when I got off the bus starving, I was not about to take a picture!


What is your favorite place to grab a quick meal for take-out?

Do you use visual tools to help motivate you?
