I have so many thoughts and emotions flying through my head at once and I’m not sure where to even start.
First of all thank you all so much for your encouragement yesterday about the gym. It really meant a lot to me. I did make it to the gym today, but I’ll talk more about that later.
Also, I really need to get back on my sleep schedule. I know that getting enough sleep is also an important part of being healthy, and I can tell lack of sleep is really messing with me. My goal is to be asleep by 11:00 tonight.
I had a TLC bar for breakfast during my break in my first class. I’ll probably stop mentioning my breakfast on days I have class, because it’s mostly going to be something boring like a granola bar or a mini bagel with PB.
For lunch, I just needed something quick and easy because I had no energy to worry with anything. Enter, leftovers:
I had leftover Chicken and Veggies Casserole with leftover Pomegranate Blackberry Tea.
After lunch and after my second class is when I went to the gym. It was a little awkward just because it was my first time going and I didn’t really know where anything was or how to work a few things, but it definitely wasn’t as bad as I’d imagined. This was actually my favorite part of the day. I’m not sure if that’s sad or not.
I did 5 minutes on a machine that was similar to a stair stepper but I’m not sure what it was called (which was really hard and I could barely make it to 5 minutes), 20 minutes on the elliptical (which is my favorite so far), 5 minutes on a stair stepper (which was kind of boring and I’m not sure I was doing correctly), 5 minutes on some bike-ish thing that wasn’t really a bike, and then 5 minutes on the stationary bike. By the end I was sweating a ton and I really felt good.
And that’s when the hunger set in. I rushed back to my apartment to heat up 2 veggies burgers from TJ’s. I put a wedge of LC cheese in the middle of them and ate them on a toasted sandwich thin. Very yummy and filling.
Of course, I had a ton of water along with this.
After dinner, I took a nice hot shower (by that time I was freezing).
Now, I’m about to inhale this TJ’s strawberry lowfat yogurt.
I’m predicting this will be very good. It better be!
I miss these two:
Even though I sometimes get annoyed by them (but who doesn’t get annoyed at their parents every once in a while?) and may speak harsh words, I love my parents very much. I’m so grateful for the opportunity they’ve given me to go to college and pursue my dream of becoming a teacher. Thanks mom and dad (and I’m sorry I can be a little snot sometimes). I love you both, and I’m looking forward to spending the upcoming long weekend with you :)
I feel a headache coming on, and can’t wait to put my head to the pillow, but first I’ve got to finish that online Spanish homework. Hopefully it won’t take more than half an hour!
I hope you all have a great night and an awesome Tuesday!
