And it’s STILL raining and windy here in Orlando! Yuck!!! The first day was kind of cool because it was rainy and I didn’t have to go to school and could just lounge around my house…..but we are going on three of this and I’m itching to see some sunlight!! 🙁 Hopefully the weekend will be nicer….
The rain and wind didn’t stop me this morning though as I zipped up my rain jacket, put on my hat, and headed to the gym. I just did 25 minutes on the treadmill and decided to save abs for tomorrow since it was getting late and I’m pretty tired this morning (didn’t get to bed until around 12:30). As for the treadmill, I walked for 5 minutes to warm up, jogged for 5 minutes, then did 10 minutes of running sprints before a 5 minute cool down jog. For the sprints, I alternated between a speed of 8.1 for 45 seconds and 5.6 (slow jog) for 1 1/2 minutes. It definitely gets your heart pumping!!
Before I went to the gym I had half a Clif Bar:
And when I got home, all wet and chilly from the rain, I made a warm bowl of chocolatey oats.
1/2 cup multigrain cereal cooked in 1 cup water
1/2 scoop chocolate protein powder
1 spoonful almond butter
I cooked the oats and stirred in the remaining ingredients—it turned out delicious! Chocolate almondy and very filling. 🙂
I wish I had more soup to take for lunch today!!! It’s totally that kind of day. Oh well—instead I packed a mish-mosh of things. I have tuna (2 oz chunk light mixed with spoonful of nayonaisse), a hard boiled egg, some veggies, a string cheese, about 10 kashis and some strawberries. Hopefully it all fits in my lunch box! 😉
And here are the snackies:
Grapes for this morning with my coffee at work:
And a cup of Kashi Go Lean Crunch (honey almond flax) to have with some tea this afternoon:
This day is going to be all a rush because I have to be at school an hour early tonight for a meeting regarding externships. Dinner will probably be simple (just a warning!). I’m sort of bummed out because my apartment for my externship fell through (they wouldn’t do only a three month lease….) and instead I’ll be staying at one of my best friend’s houses in the guestroom. She’s in law school right now in Louisiana and her parent’s were kind enough to offer me a room. It’s GREAT because it’s free, close to work and across the street from the beach but…...I can’t have Dexter because her dad is allergic. So, Dexter is going to be moving back to Tampa to live with Ryan next month and we all be reunited again at Christmas. I’ve gotten very attached to him though so the thought of not having him sleep on my bed at night is killing me!!! 🙁
