Yuck–I should have saved today to be my no-workout-day! I didn’t even get out of school last night until midnight, which means I didn’t get home last night til around 12:15. Shower, relax, bed….I probably didn’t fall asleep until 1:15 and, of course, the alarm went off at 7:15! So, see–it’s not all glamorous!!!!!! It’s puffy eyes and coffee!
Last night in school we made apple pie, which is one of the items on my practical tonight! We used the same apple filling, which we made homemade, to fill three different types of pies. One lattice, one streusel topped and one double crust. All our pies turned out pretty good and besides snacking on my larabar last night, I def. had my fingers in that apple filling (get this: the pies we made last night were completely, 100% VEGAN—of course they are not good for you in the least bit because the crust contains like a pound of shortening, but still).

After the alarm went off and Ryan called from Augusta (you can’t half your phone at the Masters or you get fined!) I ate half a banana with almond butter and dragged myself to the gym where I actually had a pretty good workout. I started by running for 5 minutes on the treadmill to just warm up, then I did walking lunges/lifting an overhead weight for 4 sets of 15 reps. Followed by back/jumping jacks, dead lifts holding 10 pound weight, the “fly” machine for my arms, chest press, shoulders and abs. Probably some other stuff in their too but I can’t remember! When I got home I made a waffle sandwich for breakfast using 2 HempPlus waffles (Yum!) with some almond butter, raspberry preserves and the other half of my banana. Love this.
I tried to pack a “fun lunch” today, as it is Friday, full of fun little things. Okay, I might be the only one that thinks grape tomatoes, kiwi and cucumber are “fun”, but bear with me.
Here’s whats in the lunchbox today:
a tofurky/cucumber/spinach sandwich with honey mustard on Ezekiel bread
a small container of “fun” grape tomatoes
And, for a snack later, another “fun” container of sliced kiwi and a half a serving of my cherry-vanilla granola.
