Tired. That’s how I feel right now. We didn’t get out last night until 11:45 and who knows the time I finally fell asleep….then back up at 7:00 to go to the gym! Ryan told me this morning he is impressed I can keep up my work out schedule and everything and do these really really long days….but, really, my workouts are so not what they used to be. For instance, today I went to the gym and did 20 minutes of cardio and came home. I know its better than nothing, but it’s really not that hard-core at all. I guess being on my feet and running around all night though sort of counts for something! I just have to make it through this summer and then I’m done…feels like a long time but I’m sure the time will go by fast.
Last night in school we made Paris Brest, which are pate a choux “donuts” filled with praline pastry cream and chantilly cream and garnished with almonds and powered sugar. I’ll be making those again for my first practical tonight! They turn out so pretty though and just look like they belong in a pastry shop window in France. We also made pate a choux swans filled with chantilly cream as well. They are delicate! I took a photo of my cheesecake after I unmolded it—unfortunately you can sort of see the streak of aluminum throughout and I had to throw it away. Sad, because it really came out nice minus the metal. Haha.
This morning I woke up, ate half a banana with pb, and, like I said, went to the gym to do some cardio. When I returned I ate a simple bowl of Optimum Power cereal with the other half of my banana and soy milk. For lunch today I packed all I have left in my kitchen: a tofurky sandwich with honey mustard and avocado (1/4th of an avocado), 2 peaches and some pb filled pretzels for snack later.
Just gotta get through this day!
