Shakin’


She was shakin’ (oh oh oh oh oh)
Snappin’ her fingers (oh oh oh oh oh)
She was movin’ round and round
That girl was shakin’

Eddie Money, anyone? I love the 80s; I wish I could have been there πŸ˜‰

No, but really, this afternoon I was shaking. Why, you ask?

Dun-dun-dun-dunnnnnnnn!

A tall latte with soy milk.

Let me explain! I used to get soy lattes at the school coffee shop all the time. They’re so delicious and nutritious (yes? i think so). But since I’m on a commuter meal plan this semester and most of my food I prepare at home, I haven’t been around campus much to indulge in coffee. Nor have I really needed it! That’s a good sign, right?

Well, after a quick elliptical workout this morning, I was really craving a soy latte! I noshed on a ginormous (it’s a real word, go with it) apple while getting ready for school:

Did you know that apples are more effective in waking you up than caffeine? For real, look it up!

And then sipped on my latte before class.

Other than being a little hungrier than usual for lunch, it meshed with me very, very nicely. I didn’t even feel the caffeine; just soymilk + coffee goodness! I attended a lunch held by the political science department where I had ordered (teehee…so spoiled) a huge salad from the nearby (amazing) deli, Wooglin’s.

spinach, mushrooms, cucumbers, avocado, onions, 1 hard boiled egg, croutons (I only spared the sliced bread)

Then, after my Arabic adjunct had ended around 4 PM, I started…shaking. Regardless of the fact that I had just watched a 2-hour Arabic movie (“State of Love.” it was great!), my heart would not stop racing!

I’m not sure when the last time I had coffee was, but it’s definitely been at least a month, perhaps even 2?? It’s amazing what caffeine withdrawal can do!

One of coping methods is making to-do lists. I might never look at this list again, but hey, A for effort!

Thank goodness I had rugby practice at night to solve THAT problem πŸ™‚

I usually don’t make “cute food” to put on the blog, but since I was using grapes…I just couldn’t resist.

Teehee.

Practice was hard and good. Good and hard, whatever you prefer.

(There were a lot of dirty jokes over dinner, can you tell? πŸ™‚ )

I simply HAD to get school food tonight, because it was SUSHI TUESDAY!

My roll had carrot, cucumber, asparagus, red pepper, and tofu.

Yummm. I still haven’t mastered theΒ eat-each-piece-in-one-bite-to-avoid-looking-like-a-gross-slob technique, but so long as it all winds up in my belly, I’m a happy sushi-eater πŸ™‚

My other rugby teammates compensate by making artwork out of soy sauce.

Have a fantastic Wednesday, errybody!

What do YOU like in YOUR sushi? Or what’s the craziest kind you’ve had?

(Apparently I’m all about the caps tonight. I still blame the caffeine.)

I usually get some variation on the avocado roll (with tofu if they have it), but since I had already had some avocado in my salad today, I opted for more veggies instead. I’m trying to focus on variety!
