All Business

It's Sunday night and I actually have something to show for it!  I started out with 4 papers, 2 PowerPoint Presentations, and a partridge in a pear tree on my To Do list for my MBA program.  I'm down to only one of each left on my list, so I'm feeling surprisingly productive and accomplished.  I was all academic all weekend long, so I'm all about synergy, workplace diversity, and the four frames of management.  Do you follow me? 

Now let's get down to bus-nast:

There were more Espresso Brownies made from my last post and they were quickly consumed.  I went from no interest to having full shareholder investment in them.  They served as the perfect breakfast dessert, plus they were mini, so the calories didn't count.
Real breakfast included my apple crisp adapted from Mama Pea but highly de-veganized with the addition of plain yogurt:

While I sat on my arse and synergized with the couch while writing about global workforce diversity, I sent hubby on a shopping trip.  He came back with the essentials:

  • Trader Joe's Whole Grain English Muffins
  • Pound Plus of dark chocolate 
  • Milton's multi-grain bread
  • Dry roasted unsalted almonds
He also went to Costco and came back with one of his essentials:

It's crab season and this little friend with his irresistible price tag begged to come home.  (Sorry vegans and vegetarians if you are reading).  I have no interest in crab, so it's all for him to enjoy!
Other essentials included more fruit and veggies:

The pineapple and a couple of the apples have already been pulverized into juice form, but the rest of the apples and persimmons have been monopolized by me!
I was also able to make some panko breaded chicken and roasted up a bunch of veggies.  Can you guess what they were?  Hint: the house smells like sweat socks and I'm deliriously happy!

In other news, I have gotten 2 workouts this weekend, serving as perfect study breaks.  I got in some runs and I'm still sticking with the leg workouts even though I have been extremely sore for the last week.  Diminishing returns, people.  I am hoping that I get more used to it as I stick with it.  I faced my nemesis today:

Last week I waddled like a duck because of it.   Let's hope it's better this week! 
I'm home now and getting ready for bed.  I evaluated my resources and I already have my breakfast cookie a la Fitnessista ready for manana:

Everything tastes better in star form!
Hope you had a great weekend and are ready for another week of excitement!  This is my last week of the quarter until Winter vacation!  Woot woot!
