Crunch Time

With only two weeks left of school (three weeks including finals), I am definitely starting to feel the pressure!  I have SO much to do that I literally will not be able to do it all.  Every single one of my 5 classes has a final plus at least one other assignment/paper/project/presentation due before the end of the semester.  It’s a lot to throw at me!

That said, I’m doing my best to stay stress-free and just handle each day as it comes. My strategy yesterday?  Walking 6 miles in the afternoon to Picnic Point, and then another 4 miles on Lakeshore Path before it was dark.  10 miles of walking in one day!  That did me WONDERS.  Plus, on the way back of my second walk I got to enjoy these views:



Pretty incredible, huh? Smile


Last night I also had a baked sweet potato – one of my favorites.  What do you do when your cookie sheet is dirty?  Use the pie pan of course! Winking smile


Baked sweet potato topped with MaraNatha organic raw almond butter, cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger.


With a glass of unsweetened almond milk.



I have a LOT to get done tonight,  so I’m headed straight to the booksHope everyone started out with a wonderful week!

  7. I love almond butter on sweet tatters even more than pb. Hope your finals week goes great!! 😀

  8. Or you can be like my boyfriend and just reuse the same baking sheet over and over again! But no, the pie pans a better plan. 😉 The end of the school year is always so stressful. The teachers cram everything into the last week and then there’s finals of cours.e Hang in there!! Only a few more weeekksss!!

  9. Have you ever tried cubing the sweet potato and coating in with nut butter before baking? I do that with a little coconut oil and cayenne – SO good.

    Congrats on being close to done! 🙂


  11. I feel your pain, love! I was up until 1:30 last night doing a project and I still had to wake up early to finish it. Just keep your eye on the prize and think of how awesome you’ll feel when you hand in that last assignment! That’s what keeps me going 🙂
