Yesterday I got a little carried away writing with a plethora of P’s. I’ll try not to go there today with the letter T, although it’s tempting ; ) Any guesses about the title? Two hundred… treats, tweets, tests? [You’ll have to read to the end for me to reveal…]
Today’s Tuesday task list was tight, yet I managed to tackle it all:
- 3-hr. Chem Lab check
- Trader Joe’s Trip check
- Intern Interview – cross your fingers check
- Visit Verizon – a new Blackberry, alive & well…and not tear-soaked! check
- Running Tuesday check
- Homework [in progress]
- Blog check
First things first. BREAKFAST, obviously!
I created quite the tasty bowl of oat bran out of my nearly bare kitchen.
- 1 1/4 c. H2O
- 1/2 c. oat bran
- 1/2 T ground flax
- 1 T walnuts
- 4 dried apricots
- agave drizzle
No need to go fancy to get full, folks!
After chem and eating “lunch” [1 piece whole wheat toast + PB, 1/2 banana & 12 oz. soy latte — I had the biggest craving for p.nut buttah!], I made my rounds at TJ’s and rushed home for my interview for a summer internship. I’m not going to say much more at this point; I don’t want to jinx the possibilities : )
After last week’s incident with my brand new Blackberry, my replacement arrived in the mail today. I hurried down the street to Verizon where they got Blackberry #2 up and running. Running. Yes, something I needed to do…especially since it’s Running Tuesday! Thanks to Sarah, this was about the only thing that got me motivated today. I made an attempt with the treadmill today:
3 x 10-minute sets
- 6 min. @ 6.4, 4 min. @ 6.8 [2.0 incline]
- alternate 6.6 & 8.0 @ 2 min. intervals
- 4 min. @ 6.8, 6 min. @ 6.4 [2.0 incline]
+ arms & abs
I didn’t always enjoy running on the treadmill, but somehow it made it’s way into my regular exercise regimen. My Tip: keep it interesting with intervals!
Running with Rachel Ray for 30-minutes, and I was ready to make a
30-minute 10-minute [“healthy meal from start to finish”] of my own!
Organic Heirloom Lettuce + Organic Cherry Tomatoes + Chevre & Seasoned Rice Vinegar
It sure hit the spot for being a relatively low-fat supper, but I didn’t stop there of course…
Milk & Cookies
I spied these little guys at TJ’s today and didn’t feel guilty about spending the dough [haha] on store-bought treats after the cashier raved about them: 100% whole wheat flour, oats & walnuts = 3 g fiber/serving. Perhaps I should apply for a Trader Joe’s PR position : )
Anyway, I must close. My to-do list is outta control! That is not what the Tuesday Two Hundred was referring to, but it might as well. The answer to my tumbler: this is the 200th post @ Nutrition Nut on the Run! That’s a lot of words, a lot of pictures…and a lot of smiles.
I hope your final week of April is A-OK!
