How am I enjoying my morning today? Let’s ask Miss K! I think she’s slightly familiar with this combo:
I was a little deprived of cottage cheese after having gone, what, possibly a week now without? Unacceptable. Picked some up last night at the grocery store.
Yes, the container is already half gone. I need to start buying this stuff in BULK.
I was plenty full after this but was pleasantly reminded by my mother that there were kiwis in the fridge. When is the last time I had a kiwi?!
Well, now it’s ten minutes ago. I ended up only eating half though because I suddenly felt a little nauseous. Too much food to early in the a.m. I guess.
Today is one of my late mornings (class doesn’t start until 11:30!) and I usually try to fit a workout into my plentiful morning time but I’m just not feeling it this morning. I think I’ll do it after class and dinner tonight instead. I feel like lazing around and reading right now instead.
But I missed yesterday because I was actually being productive and getting work done. I’m feeling slightly less stressed now that I’ve gotten some of my readings and assignments underway. I doubt that relief will last long but it’s something.
I had a chocolate Carnation Instant Breakfast drink for, well, breakfast, what else?
One instant breakfast packet, one cup of unsweetened original Almond Breeze, and half a cup of strawberries into the Bullet.
Then two early classes, in one of which I ate a Kashi Cherry Dark Chocolate granola bar since breakfast drinks just don’t seem to hold me over all that well.
Wednesdays are nice and short for me (9:30-11:30, score!) so then I came home, did some internet browsing and such, then made some lunch.
230 cals, 1.5g fat, 5g fibre, 10g protein
Taste-wise it wasn’t bad, but it could have used some more flavour or spice or something. It was a little bland. I threw in some wilted spinach and a dollop of fat free sour cream for good measure.
I also snacked on rye, leftover chicken and raw veggies while waiting for this soup, as it was of the ‘pour in boiling water and wait 5-7 minutes’ variety. I am not a patient person.
Shortly after, I did this random workout that I jotted down on a piece of paper. It’s pretty similar to most treadmill workouts I do, just varying up the speeds and inclines constantly. I get bored really easily so my favourite treadmill workouts involve switching things up as often as possible.
Hilly Variation Workout
Minute 0-5: 6mph 4% incline
5-10 7.5mph 4%
10-12 6.5mph 4%
12-14 6.5mph 8%
14-16 7mph 6%
16-18 7.5mph 4%
18-20 7.5mph 8%
20-25 6.5mph 4%
25-28 7.5mph 4%
25-28 7mph 6%
28-30 7mph 6%
30-33 6.5mph 6%
33-36 6.5mph 8%
36-38 7mph 4%
38-40 6.5mph 6%
40-43 6mph 4%
43-45 4mph 10%
I wasn’t sure how do-able this one would be but it’s quite do-able. Challenging and yet I was never on the verge of quitting, nor was I ever bored since it switches up every few minutes. Next time maybe I’ll try throwing in a couple sprints or something equally exciting.
Then I went to the grocery store with my mom pre-dinner (where I picked up my beloved cottage cheese), came home, unpacked and put it all away, and proceeded to have a serving of cottage cheese in the process.
We ate dinner soon after, where I threw together a quick egg white omelette stuffed with spinach, tomatoes, chili sauce and salsa, along with a side of velveeta mac and cheese because it’s one of my downfalls.
I was in a snacky/sweet mood last night (I think it was a homework procrastination thing) so I ended up snacking on some mellocremes from Halloween (I know, why do I still have some of those lying around? They were in the freezer), as well as an apple, a few (too many…) semi-sweet chocolate chips and a thing or two that I can’t remember.
Then I did plenty of school work. And now I should do a bit more before heading off to class. Long day today: 11:30-6. I’m not a fan of having classes for that long but there’s a 1h40min break in there so it’s tolerable.
