But this whole school thing sometimes takes precedence -- don't you hate it when you catch yourself thinking like a responsible adult
ANYWAYS, I was going to just skip over Wednesday and fill you in on yesterday's adventures, but I remembered I went on a great run on humpday so I wanted to tell you about it!
Breakfast & Workout (Wednesday)
Remember those crazy fools who ran 21 miles with me on Saturday?
Well, one of them is in my Tues/Thurs lecture (on Public Opinion and Voting Behavior - snooze) and she asked if she could tag along on my Wednesday morning run! Hells yes you can!
We planned to meet at the trails to do a fun (and muddy) 10.5 miles around 9, so I fueled up an hour earlier with two slices of sprouted wheat bread (one with jam and one with honey & cinnamon) and 2 slices of turkey bacon from TJoes!
Our run was muddy muddy - at one point I almost cried because my poor shoes were getting gross. Then I remembered that I'm not a girly girl and I should probably suck it up... so I did. But I died a little inside.
Just some gorgeous views from our run -- I forgot how much I love trails!
I had 30 minutes to grab some lunch before class, but I'm never hungry after running (okay, lies... but today I wasn't). I was racking my brain for what sounded good and finally decided to go with the last of my greek yogurt with some Trader Joe's Multigrain O's, blueberries, bananas, and cinnamon!
I felt really cool eating out of the container... but really.
I also had a Nutz Over Chocolate Luna Bar -- yum.
I got out of class at 1 and ended up napping until 3... it was pathetic.
I'm literally an 80 year old woman. BUT snacks included the last of my crunchy PB & whole wheat pretzels and some more cookies.
The mushroom and green chili chicken is still delicious as ever!! But paired with some quinoa, chopped spinach, mushrooms, brussel sprouts, and feta cheese and topped with greek yogurt -- IT WAS AMAZING!! Perfect comfort food.
I was insatiably hungry - so I kept munching on pretzels until I was full.... I'm going to be that marathoner who gains wait while training :( gahhhh.
Thirsty Thursday!! Is that just a college thing?
Unfortunately, I don't believe is such things. My Thursday schedule is hell and by the time I get home around 8, I'm exhausted!
I had a rough Thursday... I woke up tired (how does that happen) and I was a grump the whole day.
Okay, I wasn't a grump when I was chowing down on three slices of Healthy Cinnamon French Toast topped with blueberries and maple syrup.
My legs didn't want to run.
But I wanted to do something so I went for an easy 3-3.5 miler then headed to CARDIO KICKBOXING! I've attempted this class twice before and I've left both times... it's one of those choreographed boxing things and I feel like once you get lost it's a really ineffective workout. But my friend goes all the time and swears by it.... so why not?
It was so much fun! I felt like a freak - jumping around, kicking, punching pretend creepers... but I worked up a sweat. AND this morning, I woke up so freakin' sore. My arms are loving me.
Lunch, Snacks, and Adventures:
Lunch was my recent obsession -- meatless meatball subs on two slices of whole wheat bread. I also mix in some spinach and cheese to put it over the edge :)
And obviously another Luna Bar because no meal is complete without it...
After classes I had to drop off my Valentine's Day Care Packages!!!! for my sister and my cousins :) we're each other's valentines... it's kind of cute.
There was a line a mile long in the two postal places by my apartment, so I decided to take a stroll to the next closest one :) which turned out to be an excellent decision. They were super nice and, as a reward for walking 2 miles out of my way, I stopped for an Ooey Gooey Vegan Brownie
I texted the pics to my ladies and sparked some serious chocolate cravings... The brownie is made with a mixture of rice flour and garbanzo bean flour + sweetened with agave nectar and held together with vegan butter and flax. YUM.
I have a seminar that goes till 8...
so this happened.
I even took another picture instead of recycling the other FOOTLONG VEGGIE SUB pics... just to prove to you that I'm weird and obsessive and apparently really boring when it comes to food choices.
Best decision? Adding some buffalo spicy sauce to it! Genius.
I also picked a fight with a boy, ate a bar of this dark chocolate with almonds (read: an entire bar), and curled up in bed with Hulu to watch bad tv reruns...
You'd think I'm PMSing and/or pregnant... however, I don't get my period AND well, it would have to be one heck of an immaculate conception for the latter to happen hahahah
And on that note... I hope you're weekends are off to a great start, my friend :)
