Put your game face on because it’s go time! Finals season is upon us…just gotta get through next Friday and I’ll be done with my in-class exams. I have a takehome due the 22nd and while I plan on working on it a bit this week I likely won’t turn it in until Monday, the 21st.
In other news…
I got an email last night from my friend, Mary, who also workouts out at my gym, asking if I wanted to come in early to swim…obviously! So I got up a bit earlier and went in to swim before my run. Since I was going to be working out for more than an hour I knew it would be a good idea to get something in my system pre-workout.
Pre-workout fuel: whole wheat toast with peanut butter.
I didn’t make it in as early as Mary and Pam (5:15) but I got in at about 5:45 and swam until about 6:00.
Then I met Becca upstairs and we did a 3 mile treadmill workout and some weights. My mile splits
Mile 1: 9:13 (6.5 mph)
Mile 2: 8:34 (7.0 mph)
Mile 3: 8:00 (7.5 mph)
Weights: Free weights (biceps and triceps) and some abs and triceps with one of the weight machines.
After my workout I was prettttyyyy hungry. I made eggs and some fruit and yogurt.
Eggs (1/2 egg beaters + fire roasted peppers and onions + 1/4 cup black beans)
I also had some fruit (3/4 cup mixed berries) + a dollop (little less than 1/4 cup) of TJ’s nonfat Greek vanilla yogurt + a sprinkle of Kashi Go Lean!
And I used frozen fruit this time. I usually only buy fresh fruit. However, when I went grocery shopping for the week last Friday, all the fresh berries I usually buy (blueberries, raspberries, strawberries) were SO expensive!! Strawberries were $4.99 for a container, blueberries were I think $3.99 and raspberries were $5.99!!! I mean, that is just ridic.
So, I decided to give frozen fruit a chance. I got all the all natural stuff–no added sugars or anything–just straight up fruit. I thawed out the fruit beforehand. The verdict: The raspberries and blueberries were fine…but the strawberries were super mushy. Frozen fruit is perfect for smoothie making…I don’t know about fruit and yogurt bowls though.
It wasn’t bad…just different. I miss my fresh fruit. 😦 So I guess I either need to win the lottery (so money isn’t a problem when it comes to buying groceries) or move somewhere warm! 🙂
I’m done with work until after finals are over…so that means I’m off to the library!
Toodles…have a good morning!
