Glad everyone enjoyed my 7 Random Facts from this morning! :)  It was fun to choose a few things about me that I might not have otherwise had a chance to share on the blog.

 

The sun FINALLY made an appearance today!  It was crazy windy and a little chilly, but as long as there’s sun I can deal with it.  I went for a walk this afternoon and took a picture on my phone looking out over Lake Mendota.

Please note the lack of ice covering the lake!  YES!!!

  

Recently I’ve started to notice the produce abundance growing at the grocery store now that Spring is finally here.  Let’s just say that I am taking full advantage of it!  There is nothing better than loads of fresh fruit and vegetables in warm and sunny Summer months. 🙂
 

Here’s a few of my produce-filled eats from yesterday and today:
    

Gingerberry Synergy, organic orange, organic nectarine, Fage 0% Greek yogurt.

Organic cubed mango, Klarbrunn Black Cherry Sparkling Water, Siggi’s Icelandic style yogurt, organic nectarine.

What fruits and/or veggies are you excited to have back in season?

Making My Way One Exam at a Time

First off, THANK YOU everyone again for the wonderful birthday wishes!  It was a low-key day, but I loved it.  My oldest brother called me in the evening, and it was wonderful to chat with him.  We’re planning a brother-sister get-together as soon as my workload calms down! :) 

On that note, my “busiest week of college to date” is slowly lessening in intensity as I get through the mega-list of exams.  This morning I had an Environmental Geology exam that I think went decently well.  Sometimes it’s tough to know how you did on an exam right after taking it, and that’s how I felt with this one.  So we’ll just have to wait and see!

Before my exam, I had a breakfast of a bowl of Trader Joe’s Organic Golden Flax cereal topped with unsweetened almond milk with an organic banana on the side.

This was the first time I tried this cereal, and I must say that I really like it!  It seems to hold me over quite well too, which is always a bonus for a hectic college student’s life. 🙂

After breakfast, I taught an 8am Yoga class at the studio before heading out to my exam in the Geology building WAYYYYYY the heck out in the middle of nowhere on campus.  Seriously, the UW Madison campus IS the city of Madison.  I walk about 4 miles alone just getting to my classes!  I actually don’t mind it at all when the weather is nice, but when today’s temperatures are like this (the bottom one is outside)…

… I’d rather the building be a bit closer.

   

This afternoon I had a typical snack:  Synergy, organic kiwi, organic blackberries, and a Fage 0% Greek yogurt.

It’s been way too long since I’ve had blackberries.  SO good!
 

I’m taking an Intro to Buddhism class this semester, and this afternoon we literally meditated the entire class (1 hour and 15 minutes).  A certified meditation teacher came in and led the mediation, so it was actually a neat experience.  Although I’m a Yoga practitioner, I don’t normally meditate!  It was great to get a peek into another aspect of the practice.  Have you done any meditation before… on your own or with an instructor?
 

Tonight is another low-key evening… I’m heading to a Power Yoga class and hoping to get some more studying done!  I love Thursdays because we all know tomorrow is FRIIIIIDAYYYY! 😀
