Ah, the day before lent! i can feel how tought its going to be already.

cereal and chai latte
veggie-potato pancakes
chai latte + ice cream (gulp)
scone and milk

probably some fruit? Eek, i'm a bad person. But I had a riding lesson! Maybe that makes my bingeing ok? Also went to the outlets with the purpose of finding a coat. (and blowing a ton of cash at United Colors of Benetton) Neither of which I did; instead I blew a tiny bit of cash (10 euros) at Mango for a beautiful sweater.

ITS 1600 already! I have a whole chapter of APUSH to read/take notes on and a vocab quiz in german!

Hot Chocolate
balisto bar
chicken and pasta
fruit and yogurt

Ran two miles in 16:44!!! Granted, I almost went into cardiac arrest and died, but, hey. My mile and a half was 12:45 or something close to that. Passing the PT test for two miles is 18:36, so huzzah. But it was on a treadmill and I always do better onthe treadmill. I also played soccer with some old(er) guys and did my pullups on the machine (7 at 125 and 7 at 110? or next lowest setting).  My room is still messy, haven't done any homework, but I DID watch Donnie Darko. Twice. What more can you get out of a weekend?

I volunteered at Soldier's Angels today and am feeling morally accomplished. Basically, bought groceries, folded socks and delivered stuff to the hospital. Also saw some very attractive soldiers, one of whom told me I must be 'fucking crazy' to be wearing a short sleeve shirt. We totally bonded. I'm very hungry.

Lemon-Honey Tea
Great Grains w/ milk
PB&J w/ clementine
tea, cream & sugar
whole grain toast with sunflower seeds

In other news I am extremely sick and can not smell a thing. German final is tomorrow and my group is not prepared (neither, for that matter, am I), Chapter 18 test in APUSH that I'm not worried about, and I got to look at an eardrum today! I want an otoscope for Christmas next year. 

Debating whether to Chi or not to Chi. On the one hand, I like curly hair, it's healthier, I'm not frying the living daylights out of it, etc. On the other, I like straight hair, it's ceramic plated, I have the heat protecting spray, but I AM still feeling like I'm frying the living daylights out of it. There has to be a comm on here: Straight vs. Curly.

I have read tons of books whose names I can't really remember but I"ll give it a shot: Picture Maker, Poisonwood Bible, Prodigal Summer, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, Le Morte d'Arthur (in progress), Plague of Doves, Gap Creek (in progress), The Darwin Conspiracy (in progress).  NOTE TO SELF: freakin' remember to ask the librarian to print out list of all books checked out.

Trying to go sugar free. Or sugar low, at any rate. According to mypyramid I should get:


GRAINS-7 oz.
FRUITS- 3 c.
MILK- 3 c.

However, I do not measure my apples and clementines in cups. So that's basically useless. I'm good on milk, good on fruit, Um...veggies? Not so good.

Tuesdays: riding, 1 hr. average: 300 calories burned
Wednesdays: Soccer, indoor, 1 hr. 15 min about 600 calories burned
Sometimes I run. When I'm feeling ambitious. Which is not too often.

I've recently experienced a smoothie fascination.  Usually I just put whatever fruit we have plus plain yogurt or milk in it, but I was looking for some other recipes and found a good one.  Unfortunately, I have neither cranberry juice, nor pomegranate juice, nor limes, nor club soda. 

Pomegranate/Cranberry Smoothie

3 cups chilled unsweetened cranberry juice
3/4 cup chilled pomegranate juice
1/3 cup fresh lime juice
6 packets of no-calorie sweetener
3 cups chilled club soda

I usually, however, think recipes for smoothies are stupid.  Just the name pretty much sums it up.  Banana cinnamon, banana coconut cinnamon, peanut banana, etc.

11th (option 1)

AP United States History
Model United Nations
Health Sciences
Anatomy and Physiology

12th (option 1)

I'm doing the AP Chemistry work now, but I don't know whether or not I'll actually take it.  I think I could handle 3 AP's this year, but what with riding lessons, volunteering (Soldier's ANgels, Red Cross?), cross country, soccer, violin, clubs, etc, I don't know if I could swing it.

Summer Stuff

Well, its been a while but I've finally decided to return...I think the only real reason I hae this journal is to keep a tab on all of the books I have read/am reading, so we can start with that:

The Autoimmune Epidemic: Bodies Gone Haywire in a World Out of Balance and the Cutting Edge Medicine that Promises Hope by DonnaNakazawa

Amazing book that really freaked me out.  It made me start a pact with myself: no more processed foods, no dark hair dye, no nail polish, green cleaning supplies, etc.  Also made me think about specializing in Immunology.

The Illustrated Man by Ray Bradbury

I first read it in 8th grade and it was my first encounter with Sci-Fi (excluding A Wrinkle in Time...oh, and Dune, but I only read like....12 pages of that so it doesn't count) and I actually liked it.  I mean, some of the stories were pretty boring, like that one about the rocket, but all in all, a good read.  Not as good as the ensuing discussions with John Michael about alien abduction, rocket science, etc.

The Grenadillo Box by Janet Gleeson

It was good but I didn't finish it, I might check it back out and do so.  A little wordy and...I don't know. Not  a favorite. 

I have a list of others I've read because that's not nearly it, but I don't reallly want to go downstairs and get it.  Mostly my time has been taken up by AP Chemistry/AP United States History summer work and cross country training.
