Howdy! It has been – and will be – a long day, so I’ll keep this quick.
My morning started with a trip to the gym. My CT10k plan called for 11 sets of 3 minutes running / 2 minutes walking, but today was my worst workout ever so I had to mix it up a bit. My calves were soooooo tight. I ran and walked super slowly and stopped practically every 5 minutes to stretch but my legs just wouldn’t feel right. I ended up doing 6 sets of 3/2, followed by 30 minutes of slow walking with my notecards, and then another 6 sets of 3/2. 90 minutes and 6.7 miles in total. And after my walk home my legs now feel completely better; weird!
I drank a grape G2 while I was at the gym.
Technically this was a drink purchase but I’m not going to count it. I was feeling very light-headed so calories were a necessity and not just a desire for something other than water. I am going to buy a few larger (read cheaper unit cost) G2s next time I’m at the store though.
I ate lunch on my walk to school, or at least attempted to. First, a delightfully crunchy pink lady apple.
Next, I packed a B’More Skyr Vanilla Smoothie.
I had such high hopes – the packaging was neat and I adore Siggi’s skyr yogurts – but alas, stevia. Yuck, I wish I had looked at the ingredient list more carefully. I had to throw the drink out after just two sips. Then I spent the rest of the afternoon bemoaning our no-take-out challenge; I didn’t have anything else to eat and I was starving!
I stayed strong though, and even managed to focus intently for my test. I’m never really sure, but I think this one went much better than the last few. Fingers crossed.
And in even better news, the husband got out early from the hospital in time to drive me home from school. Thus bringing me to food 90% more quickly.
Those are cola gummis I got in Toronto and they were fabulous. I have the rest of my stash packed for lunch tomorrow and I just can’t wait.
I also made an extraordinary sandwich.
A Sandwich Thin topped with Applegate Farms roasted turkey, sharp cheddar, and tons of sliced sweet pickles.
Mmmmmmmn! When I was in middle school I’d occasionally pack pickle and cheddar sandwiches for lunch and they are still rocking my socks today.
My delicious sandwich was eaten on the go. It was warm enough this afternoon to walk Webster sans coats!
We still have more freezing days ahead of us, but it was nice to get a little taste of spring.
Dinner was an oldie but a goodie.
Easy Peasy Peanut Noodles, with an updated recipe page.
Plus the last serving of Malted Heath Bar Toffee Blondie 2 Ingredient Ice Cream for dessert.
I’m pretty sad to see it go.
We’ll call dinner carbo-loading for the marathon night ahead of me. The things I have to get done for tomorrow list includes studying for my first stats test, three homework assignments for clinical, and a major assignment for management. And the number things on the list I’m done with is – zero. Whoops! Guess I needed to do some work last weekend.
I’m not sure when (or if!) I’ll get to bed but I foresee some midnight snacking in my future. Sweet dreams to the rest of you!
