I had a kick-butt workout last night!
- 1.5-mile run [indoor track]
- 12-mile ride [spinning for 32 min.]
- 1.5-mile run, including sprint intervals [indoor track]
- + 4 x 15 “knee-to-chest step raises”
The new spinning bikes at the gym are awesome. I finally found something to push me to that next “level”…and it’s such a fun way to cross-train. As much as I would love to just run, and run, and run…I know that is not what’s best for my body. Drenched in sweat and high off endorphines, I hurried across campus to my bi-monthly Nutrition and Food Science Association meeting. I scored a sweet tee:
Only the cool kids wear I <3 Fruits & Veggies shirts =]
At home and out of the rain, I scarfed down a huge piece of leftover pizza while catching up with a friend on the phone. Then it was time to study my fruits & veggies for my Elementary Foods exam.
Today has been one of the longest Wednesdays to date. I was at school from 10:00am – 6:30pm! I was really hoping to post this morning before I left home, but clearly that did not happen. I inhaled a yogurt mess of 2% Greek, 1/4 cup Raisin Bran, 1/4 cup Humboldt Honey Granola & 1/2 banana, tossed my lunch into my backpack, and was out the door.
PB&Co Bee’s Knees & Banana Sandwich on Whole Wheat
Carrot, Cucumber & Tomato
2 TJ’s Truffle Hearts [from my valentine]
After my Elementary Foods exam [which went well, or so I feel], I had an hour and half to kill before my last class, so I decided to search for something to satisfy my already empty tummy. What is better than a hot latte in the middle of a long [wet & cold] day? I fought and fought the temptation, but at last…I caved and lost the Coffee Challenge. It was definitely worth it though. After a week and half of being espresso-free, my grande decaf latte with raw sugar was tastier than ever. However, this means no Friday Starbucks treat for me.
Warning: repeat photo…oopsie!
I was famished by the time I finally got home, so I whipped up my favorite 3-minute-meal:
Dr. Praeger’s California Love Veggie Burger + Mashed Avocado & Salsa
…with a side of black beans
I’m glad I made it through the day in one piece. It’s been one heck of a Hump Day! I’m feeling pretty prepared for my Statistics exam after tonight’s review session, and am looking forward to getting on the bike again tomorrow. Spinning = love.
Hope you are having a nice night,
