Hello! I’ve been trying to post for a while, but my internet connection at home just was not having it!

Since this post was supposed to go up yesterday, this becomes accidental throwback Thursday!

And what, my friends, are we throwing it back to?

Last year’s Giant’s Race!ImageMy sister and I ran the 10k last year. ImageWhat’s this? Yeah, um. I won my division last year! What? How did THAT happen?

Well, I’m super proud of that! To be fair, my age group isn’t huge. But I’ll take it! Next year I’m considering doing the 10k again…and training to win. We shall see!

Back to the important stuff…food and exercise.

Yesterday morning was an early spin class. Yes, I get up at 5:10am in the summer for my own pleasure. Yes, I’m a college student. Yes, those are oxymorons. 

My calf continues to feel better, especially after spin. I refueled with a chocolate protein smoothie, with 1/2 cup less almond milk than usual. ImagePlus a small slice of toast with sunflower seed butter.ImageYesterday morning I took my dog out to the park to participate in his favorite activity ever-soccer. He goes absolutely crazy for soccer balls. I wish I had gotten a picture of him, but I left my phone in the car so it wouldn’t get slobbery. ImageIt’s funny, he got mistaken for a puppy again. This happens regularly! Umm no, he’s almost 12? 

Before class I whipped up a quick lunch of leftover spinach quiche. ImageAfter class, I hustled over to Crossfit. It was a little close-I hate rush hour traffic! The WOD was 7 rounds of 100m run, 5 toes to bar, 10 deadlifts (115), and 10 overhead squats with a 25 pound weight. I Rxed the weight, but did knees to elbows. It took me about 17:00-on the slower side. I wasn’t going to really push my calf on the run! (And *knock on wood* it’s feeling good as new!) 

I made myself a little snack plate, plus the leftovers from that morning’s smoothie. 

ImageTrader Joe’s spinach and kale bites-not bad but they shouldn’t be microwaved (not that they have microwave directions…) They heated super unevenly! But tasty other than that!

Plus crunchamame, peas, and half a mango. It was perfect!

Sadly, I did not get enough sleep last night. I had to get up early this morning for the kitten nursery, and I had to stay up to sign up for fall classes….and the system failed. Grrr. I can’t believe I’m already signing up for classes though! Where has the time gone? 

-Granted, I still have almost 2 months of summer….

Also, please tell me how much I’m going to hate myself this quarter-here’s the current schedule plan: Chem, Chem lab, Physics, Physics lab, Bio, a unit of labwork. 

Ughh not even one fun class in there….

And since I love you all, here are some pictures from the kitten nursery this morning; we got 5 new litters of really little kittens! I had to syringe-feed a litter and I came home covered in cat food….sacrifices people!ImageImageImageImageImageI love this. 

After changing out of my cat food caked clothes, I made myself a fruit bowl topped with sunflower seed butter. Image

And one last thing-how cool is this? At the lab I work at, I had to take pictures of printer cartridges to be returned because they were defective….3D printer cartridges! The “ink” that was leaking everywhere was wax and plastic. Crazy.

What was/is your favorite subject in school?

    Spinach quiche! !! Gimmee! Nom nom. Really, I have never had a favorite subject. My least fave was chemistry though. Made a D in that class all year. I just could not understand it

      Haha I didn’t realize how much I hated Chemistry until this year. I HATE IT. Only 1 more year….

        You can do It!

    that fruit bowl looks so good!
    favorite subject in high school was probably math and computers #nerd 🙂
    in college it was softball and racquetball 🙂 it was a healthy distraction from my math and computer classes

    1. Aurora

      Haha I can totally understand that!

    Ah yes, the wonderful sophomore year classes of a science major. I had the same exact schedule plus rowing and I wanted to die, but if you make it through sophomore year classes, all your upper divs will be worth it. Those are stunning pics of your epic fruit salad!

    1. Aurora

      I cannot even imagine rowing plus all that! I had enough trouble with rowing and all my freshman classes!

    Good for you for getting up so early! Oh and if it makes you feel any better, I have the EXACT same schedule as you for my upcoming quarter. I might want to take French as well, which would put me at a scary 21 units haha. Joy 😉

    1. Aurora

      Haha, I considered adding a “fun” class, but then I figured, how “fun” could that many units actually be??
