Listen to this while you read about my day:
Today was the last day of publishing at The Gazette (Wednesday’s issue is ready to go, we work ahead of time), so I had a pretty busy day writing things and going to class. I took time for a snack at the library this morning and made sure to act on those goals of mine and had an apple with almonds (balanced, right?).
I got home this evening and managed to put the finishing touches on my portfolio. It’s done. I know you know because I dedicated an entire post to it. Read my feature and give me feedback, please!
I made myself a quick dinner because I was heading to the gym and had had some chocolate to tide me over. I think I went over my “100 calories of crap” aim for the day, but whatever. 10% of 2,000 (arbitrary) is 200, so there. And Hershey Kisses are irresistible. My dinner is even more un-photogenic than I thought it would be, but it was delicious. I took a toasted whole grain bun and used some of last night’s spaghetti/meat sauce (meatless Monday, my apologies) with cheddar cheese to make a kind of meatball sub variation (with extra veggies in the form of zucchini and mushrooms!).
Dinner sat pretty well even through a tough class at The Athletic Club. I did a mile on the treadmill to warm up, followed by about 45 minutes in the class (lots of squats and things again) and then finished up on the elliptical to give myself an excuse to read a magazine.
I am back on daily mile with my workouts. I figure since I’m training for something now (though I haven’t registered for the races yet), I might as well keep track of it somewhere fun! I will hopefully get organized with my posts and include a recap on Saturdays or Sundays looking back at things, something I’ve seen and liked on other blogs.
Once I was showered and comfy on my futon, I had a snack that I think is worth sharing (I’m realizing pictures of the same breakfast every day are boring–apologies), especially since it’s a mix of nutrition and “fun” foods.
Now it’s nearly bed time because I’ve got a big day tomorrow. Tonight was the perfect relaxing night after working so hard on that portfolio and I know I’ll be ready to start studying come Wednesday. Holy crap, this semester is gone…I literally have one more hour of class left ’til I’m done all my required kin courses to graduate. Don’t worry, I’ll be back next semester though. Anyways, I’m off to bed. Tomorrow’s going to be fun but day trips to Toronto make for a tired Cheryl. Look out, Toronto! Pray the snow is on hold tomorrow and comes back Wednesday, please?
What’s a new snack you’ve tried lately?
Do you track your training? How?
