Taking Back My Twenties

Shells or Spirals?

Posted on Mar 9, 2011 | 3 comments

Hello friends, I’ve missed you.

Between class on Monday and the event last night, I feel like I haven’t written a regular post in a while. I enjoy being busy, but I also love a night on the couch.

All three of my supervisors were out of work today, so it was a pretty relaxed day of writing at my internship. I haven’t blogged about work in a while because I’m really in the swing of things and there haven’t been a whole lot of new things going on. I feel like I’m really starting to make connections with some of my counseling cases, and although I’m not thrilled with the whole testing and report-writing thing, I’m getting much better at it! But I’m definitely ready for the new environment that next year will hopefully bring. There’s only about eight weeks until graduation!!!!!! The bad news is that I have to keep going to my internship through the end of the school year in June, so graduation isn’t quite as exciting as it’s been in the past.

Wednesday’s I do the babysitting thing, so no exercise today. While I’ve been keeping up with my rotation of stair-climbing, spinning, and the occasional run or elliptical, I’ve been in a little bit of a strength training rut. I just haven’t felt like doing my pushups as regularly and I’m rarely interested in lifting these days. I’m hoping the warm weather will motivate me to get back into free weights.

I’m always interested in food though, no matter what season it may be. Tonight’s dinner was simplistic, since I tend to be tired on hump day:  veggie mac and cheese plus asparagus.


I can never remember which kind I like the best, but this one was not it. I think I like the spirals.


Matt and I are on day three of watching Angels and Demons before bed, so maybe we’ll actually finish it tonight. I’m also hoping we’ll break into our exotic Scharffen Berger bar for dessert.

What’s your favorite type of [boxed] mac and cheese or week-night dessert?

    My fav boxed back and cheese is Back to Nature’s Crazy Bugs. YUM. I stopped eating Kraft a long time ago and have been trying the various Annie’s and Back to Nature flavors, and that one is always the winner! Annie’s also makes a Peace Parmesan kind that is realllllly good.

    We have tried the different Annie’s versions multiple times. We just cant get on board, so in our house we decided that since both of our parents fed us Kraft- that as seldom as we eat it, its fine for us too. Although, the whole wheat variety has zip difference from the regular. Dessert on weeknights is killing me. Im trying hard to kick the habit but, around eight pm my sweet tooth takes over. I have been most recently making us walk to the grocery (about ten minutes) and walk back to get dessert. Mmm. Cadberry Cream eggs….

      You should try the Nature’s Path because I feel like it’s a good compromise between Annie’s and Kraft. My mom is obsessed with Cadbury eggs and we always had them in the house around Easter time!
