Fro-Yo Cravings

Salut, mes belles!

How are you? ´Cause I´m doing great, haha.

As you probably have noticed, I´m in such good mood today. Maybe it´s because it´s the first “lazy” school week I´ve had in AGES! Homeworks are almost inexistent, as every single teacher is fighting against time to deliver all the results from our tests. Classes have been all about corrections! It´s been great :)

Anyhow – I think I should show you some of my recent results, as promised! Let´s see…

Physics: 89/100

Maths: 78/100

Literature: 82/100

Geography: 89/100

French: 91/100

Biology: 88/100

History: 100/100

There are still a few results missing, and those aren´t the final results, as they´re calculated through median calculus, but… Yeah. I suck at Maths, I know :P

But just so you know, my results in Literature, Geography and History are the highest in my class. Tough, tough… Haha.

I´ll show you all my school report with my final grades as soon as it arrives. Ok?

Now, moving on to lighter news ;)

Here are the pics of my recent eats!

Let´s see where we stopped -

TUESDAY

Breakfast

DSCF2725

My last bar from Boston/NY trip! S-A-D!

DSCF2728

Glorious, obviously ;)

School Snack

DSCF2731

A mini-pear! It wasn´t ripe enough, though :P

Lunch

DSCF2732

In the mix: lettuce, grated beets, heart-of-palms, crumbled ricotta, turkey breast slices and pineapple, with mustard sauce. Y-U-M!

Dinner

DSCF2736

At Pizza Hut, with friends and family at Aunt Renata´s b-day party…

DSCF2740

I ordered the “Pizza Salad Chicken” – a bed of lettuce, olives, red cabbage, tomato and grilled chicken slices over a thin pizza dough. Italian dressing on the side!

DSCF2738

I´ve had all the salad part, but I left all the pizza dough. It was already cold by the time I got to that part, anyhow. But the salad was lovely! I even added a little Italian sauce (~2 tbsp). An Iced Tea can on the side :)

WEDNESDAY (Hump-Day!)

Breakfast

DSCF2744

1 sliced apple with 1/2 container of plain non-fat yogurt

DSCF2746

Close-up version…

DSCF2747

What do y´all think? :)

School Snack

DSCF2748

Half an Oats N´Honey granola bar

Lunch

DSCF2749

Ok – I know it sounds crazy, but… I just wanted FRO-YO for lunch today! So I bought an apple to munch on before the big star… my beloved frozen yogurt!

DSCF2751

Unfortunately, they were outta natural yogurt today. I thought about giving up, but I decided to challenge myself and order a “Berries-Flavoured” one! It wasn´t as good as the other, but it definetely hit the spot ;)

DSCF2753

Perfection.

Dinner

DSCF2761

Slice of cooked cassava, sautéed spinach, cooked carrots and beets, a small slice of veggie quiche, slice of ricotta+spinach pie, steamed broccoli and heart-of-palms strings (didn´t have the sweet potato, it tasted pretty bad)

Gotta have my veggies! Haha.

Wish you all an amazing night and a fabulous Thursday, loves!

I´m off to see “Avatar” with Mom and Lelê now :)

See y´all!

XOXO

Not-So-Often

Hello, blog-world!

Wow, it´s been a while. I know, I keep saying this, right?! My regular posts just don´t exist anymore, as you may have noticed. Life´s been busy!

Let me update you on a few things!

1- My test week is over. I already have some of the results!

2- I traveled on Friday and came back on Saturday. I spent both Saturday and Sunday at my Dad´s house, which explains the lack of posts. Oops.

3- Even though I had almost a week free, I´m exhausted. I haven´t slept decently since… the beggining of April. I´ve been spending lots of nights wide awake, and I just don´t know why. The only thing I know is that no sleep at night means a whole sleepy-mode day. Not so pleasant.

4- There were no new posts, but I made sure I was reading all of your blogs! I´d like to thank you all for the amazing comments I received, by the way. You´re all too sweet!

5- Today would be my grandfather´s 76th birthday. And I have mixed feelings about this. I spent the whole day thinking of him, and how great would be to still have him around. But I know he was suffering, so maybe it was for the best… I just don´t know. I feel a bit sad. Quiet. I miss him.

But I don´t mean to finish this post on a sad note. Here are some of my latest eats!

BREAKFAST
