Done With Math!

I’m so happy that I just have to share: I totally rocked my cost control final exam and pulled off my first A EVER on a math test (and got the highest grade in the class!)!!!!! It took me about two hours to finish the test and I had to work out each problem on scrap paper but it was worth it! I guess you would have to really “know” me to understand fully….I HATE, SUCK AT and DESPISE all math. I took freshman math my senior year of college and it was a horrendous affair and struggle! It just is not my thing. I’m a writer, not a mathematician ! So I was very excited to receive such a good grade on my last math test ever. Yay!

Anyways, back to food! This morning I snacked on a clif bar after my exam:


I also bought a cup of coffee! Meh, I caved ;(

AndΒ  the entire time I was at school I was just imaging the awesomness of my lunch today! Can it get any better than Pei Wei pad thai leftovers?! NO!


DANG! This was a HUGE plate of pasta!!!!!! I can’t believe that was half?! (I eyeballed it last night so who really knows). I did eat the entire thing though because you just have to. It’s amazing. I’m stuffed right now though and plan to pack for a few hours then hit the gym for some weight lifting.

Catch ya for dinner!

    Congrats on the math! My daughter gets straight A’s and EXCEPT ALWAYS a C in math. I blame her 3rd grade math teacher who wasn’t any good. You should be very proud of yourself!

    Three words: LOVE PAD THAI!

    Happy Wednesday!

    Clapping and cheering! Looks like all your scrap paper scratches paid off. But now that you scored highest in the class I don’t think you’re allowed to say you suck at all math anymore!

    I love pad thai but I feel like no matter how little of it I eat I am all bloated the next day. Do you get that feeling too? Maybe the place I go to just adds a lot of extra salt. I don’t know

    Also had pad thai, although mine was a frozen meal. But, a very good one: Ethnic Gourment Chicken Pad Thai.
    High math grades are always exciting. Good job.

    Congrats on the test score. I have to say, I thought I never liked math either, but I find it helps when the calculations are related to something you enjoy. For example, now I really like stats because now that I work in marketing I can see how they can be used to tell a story.

    hey jenna, I noticed that you’ve tried the vita tops and enjoyed them. im one of those people who really enjoy single packaged treats because it allows me a little more control. however, if the size is tiny, it can have a bad effect and make me want to go get another one.

    basically, my question is,
    how big are these vitatops? are they substantial enough to have as a snack and not feel cheated due to a tiny portion? what would you compare the size to?

    Thank you so much! You’re eating habits are amazing and I look to you for so much encouragement. πŸ™‚

    Thai food is wonderful! Congrats on your test, I always get nervous for them, especially math ones! I myself had a spanish exam today, very hard!! I’d love for you to check out my blog, I’ve read yours a little (and I’m sorry I ended up with a similar name but mine didn’t come from yours! I might end up changing…), but you’ve inspired me with just a couple posts! I also would like to get a bit more info on how you were certified in nutrition…would it be possible to do online sometime? I am going into physical therapy and am interested in nutrition as well. Thanks!
