Hey guys! I am currently in the midst of finals. Yay for the quarter system! My first final is tomorrow (yes, on a Saturday…cool) so I’m taking a quick study break to blog!
Guess what my parents will be doing while I’m in my final?
Bringing this girl home!
To say I’m excited would be the understatement of the year! We still need a name though! Right after my final I’m hightailing it home to meet her!
One of the reasons I wanted to post today was because I’m now doing some different and specific things with my eating and nutrition. It’s kind of complicated and for a variety of reasons which I may eventually post on, but I wanted to document a day.
This morning I did a super quick track workout-just 6x400m. Beforehand, I ate half a banana. Then….this is actually super exciting…I had a cappuccino! It was decaf-believe me-but I haven’t had one since February since the whole destroying my stomach lining thing, and my body didn’t hate it and it was delicious!
I needed one before the year ended!
Breakfast was at the dining hall-I had to bring my own sun butter, but I made a yogurt bowl with plain greek yogurt and honeydew (the only fruit option…which actually was really good in yogurt-who knew?), and some roasted potatoes.
Then I hit the library for a few hours before lunch.
I really loaded up on the veggies-a side salad, a couple of carrots, and lettuce cups with sautéed veggies. Plus chicken with ketchup and brown rice.
I also had a couple of bites of chocolate soft serve. I’m trying to learn to enjoy sweets in small portions without totally denying my sweet tooth!
My afternoon snack was some chicken and a mango.
And then right before Crossfit I had half a banana, some seed crackers, and sunbutter.
At Crossfit we did back squats with a slow descend. The WOD was 3 rounds of 15 pull ups, 30 double unders, and 15 kb swings. The trick was that the kb swings were with a kb that was a size heavier than we would normally use-and it definitely made a big difference in the difficulty level!
I stopped at Whole Foods for dinner.
I got cauliflower bisque and added spinach and chicken breast for some more staying power, plus a little potato salad and some mushrooms (which I ended up not being a fan of). And kombucha!
I also got some fancy raw chocolate bar.
It was filled with some sort of date paste. Good, but I think I may not be ready for the caffeine content of dark chocolate because I’m definitely feeling this a bit!
So that was my day. I know I haven’t been blogging much lately. I feel like I’m at sort of a Crossroads. I’m trying to make some lifestyle changes this summer, and I will also have a ton of blog content this summer (hello-PUPPY) so we will see.
Do you have any puppy name ideas??
