New month! WIAW! Excitement!
Ohhh, today was delicious!
Breakfast was cereal and banana and soy milk with pecans and was perfect.
After class this morning, I dropped Fashion Writing. Yay for Thursday afternoon freedom (tomorrow filled with a dietitian visit, physio and a trip to talk to a triathlon coach here in town and then maybe heading to a support group for a check-in)…Afterwards, I had something different for my morning snack – I can’t remember the last time I ate hummus! I always buy it, but it just sits there in my fridge til I share it or throw it out. With zucchini and carrots, it was nice for a change! I had lots of options to choose from because I packed a fridge-ful of food in an attempt to stop myself from getting desperate or having to buy stuff today! Set yourself up for success…
The lunch hungries came early. I had my ham and cheese sandwich (on pumpernickel—making the most of that loaf!) and leftover tomato soup. It was amazing.
I spent the day working at the Gazette and trying to get started on my 750 word personal essay assignment. It’s due Friday. Ideas: losing toenails, my cookbook shelf, what it meant to cross the finish line of the first half marathon I ran, etc. I’m leaning towards the last—because it started off as a draft with my experience of grade 9 gym class. 750 words isn’t that much and it’s just a draft that is due on Friday, but I really want to try with this class because it’s something I enjoy and want to get better at! I spent some time at the library, where I downed my apple and peanut butter before heading to the gym to teach bootcamp and spin!
Both classes went well. I did a revamp of yesterday’s workout for bootcamp and I unfortunately forgot my new cd and had to use the spin playlist from January 9 …but oh well. Familiar faces and a good sweat session, though I’ll admit I couldn’t get into it myself. Hmmph. I am so cautious with this hip. Cmonnnnnn physio!
After my workouts, I snarfed my orange in the locker room so I’d have enough fuel to cook a dinner, which I did! I am pretty excited that I made such an improvement from last week’s post workout eating spree!
I made roasted potatoes (which I microwaved first), spinach chips (a la kale chips) which I boosted up with some steamed (microwaved) spinach), and a salmon steak! Best part? I have leftovers for tomorrow!
After dinner I picked up my replacement iPhone. Still praying I don’t end up having to pay when they realize it’s water damaged…
I also went in lulu – dangerous. I am having a decaf Americano now and need to do some work on two assignments due for Friday and then do my physio stuff before bed! I am going to try to get into that routine so that I’m off the computer and doing something not staring at a screen before bed! Swimming is early tomorrow but I’m looking forward to it and to a busy busy day.
A plan for my new phone is to keep it on silent except phone calls and to answer stuff less often (sorry folks, if it’s important call me). I don’t need to check my email every time I get out of the car or sit down somewhere. Just sayin’…I’m also thinking of keeping facebook off of it…but I’m not sure! I like posting at the end of the day here with my camera’s pictures so I might have a new routine going.
I’m going to rant for a second here, and then stop whining:
- The weather outside is warm and crazy for February. While I don’t wish snow upon any of us, I am really frustrated by my injury because I can’t be out running in the warm weather.
- My hip is getting expensive. Physio is 50$ an hour, massages are 60$ an hour, and parking on campus is pricey but when it really hurts, I’m going to shell it out. I want to be better—now.
- Teaching bootcamp is fun but I am ready to be able to do it with them. C’mon hip, heal. I am so frustrated and I learned my lessons – don’t complain about “having to workout”—every workout is a treat (remind me of that when training gets tough), don’t jump into things too soon, don’t neglect your body, give yourself time to recovery, eat well.
- If you have a boyfriend, don’t whine about how much you hate valentine’s day. Leave that for painfully single gals like me and just keep it to yourself, even if you think it’s a commercialized waste of time. I’ll take your chocolates. Thanks.
This ended up being so long. Props if you’re still reading and comprehending.
This also just happened:
What did you eat today?
What’s your favorite kind of hummus?
What could you use a rant about? Feel free…I’m all ears.
