I guess I used up all of my weekend productivity motivation yesterday because today I had close to none. I rolled outta bed at 8:30am – that’s sleeping in! – and ‘made’ cereal for breakfast… a pathetic Sunday morning meal.
Oh, but it was still pretty… and pretty tasty.
- Barbara’s Shredded Spoonfuls
- homemade granola – still tasting fresh
- 1/2 banana + 1/2 organic farmers’ market peach
- organic 1% milk
I wanted to workout this morning, but didn’t know what form of exercise I wanted to do after my long run yesterday. While I thought about it, I gave Little Blue a thorough bubble bath + vacuum [hey, that’s exercise – right!?], as well as caught up on my 3 loads of laundry from last weekend.
Still undecided about exercise, I ate.
Plain 0% Greek + 2 fresh figs + walnuts & honey – mmmm!
After lunch and a couple hours at the computer doing homework, I was hit with the Sunday Slump. There wasn’t an ounce of energy to be found in my body. My throat hurt. I needed sleep. I knew then that fitting in an evening workout was out of the picture [hence the achy breaky heart]. My body was not game for raising its heart rate, so I laid on my feather bed until my eyelids began to drift closed. Can you see where this is going? Don’t underestimate the power of Sunday afternoon siesta. It wasn’t long, but it was just what my body requested. Half an hour later, I was mildly refreshed and ready to… eat.
Still not feeling 100%, I took the easy way out with dinner.
A handful of gold.
… and one of my favorite, college-style comfort foods ever: Annie’s Mac & Cheese with a dab of real buttah, peas and creamy avocado.
New roommate: “What are you going to do with that avocado"?
Me: “Oh, ya know… just put it in my macaroni and cheese with peas.”
Very odd combo, but tasty to me! : )
Going to work on my never-ending pile of assignments, and then hopefully turn in to bed early. I have not been getting enough zzz’s and it’s starting to take a toll on me. I can’t let a lack of sleep prevent me from possibly having one of my greatest training seasons yet. I want to be exercising at least 5x/week, and that has not always been happening =/
Run. Eat. Study. Sleep. Repeat.
