Double days


Today has been so. incredibly. long.

But in a really good way! :]

Here’s the play by play ;]

I woke up at 8ish and had a bowl of Kashi Honey O’s with 1/2 a banana, a handful of blueberries, and almond milk. Coffee followed soon after along with an attempt to tackle some chem homework!

Then, just as I was gearing up for a run, Sabrina texted me asking if I had run yet! We ended up running together at a pleasant, casual pace. My quads are reaaaaal sore from squats last night, so I didn’t know how much I’d be able to do. We settled on 3 miles because it was February 1st! 2/1… 2+1=3. ;] We ended up doing 3.19 miles so yay for 5K!

Afterwards, I came home and didn’t shower. Why? Because Sabrina and I had another workout planned for the day.

But first I made lunch! A spinach salad with salmon, raisins, nuts, cauliflower, broccoli, tomatoes, cucumber, and beets! Quickly followed by a piece of 72% Ghiradelli chocolate {I’m almost out!} and a really juicy orange.

I worked on my homework a bit more and then it was time for workout numero dos!

I rode my bike to campus where I met Sabrina for a swim session. It was exhausting. And I was so hungry! I ate half of a protein bar as fuel {1/4 before workout, 1/4 after.}

I did 400 yards, but pretty spread out! I need to build up my swim endurance stat! As soon as we finished, I jetted home on my bike, well as fast as my quads would allow, to shower up! I also quickly ate 1/2 a whole wheat wrap with a schmear of hummus and a few slices of turkey.

Why was I rushing?

I had to meet some girls from my bio class for a study session! We went to a place called Quack’s Bakery on 43rd. I ordered a single soy latte and was sadly not impressed :[ Nonetheless, the studying went well! It was nice to have some things clarified and helping them with some stuff reaffirmed what I already understood. We studied and reviewed for two hours.

When I finally got home, I quickly got to work on dinner. I roasted up some sweet potato, zucchini, and brussel sprouts. On the stove, I sauteed some spinach and then threw in an egg! It was delicious, but not as filling as I had hoped. Just a little while after, I had the other half of that wrap with PB and jelly and then some strawberries with almond butter.

Now my tummy is happy and my body is so very tired.

I want to finish that chem homework before I study with a friend tomorrow, but I just don’t know if I can muster up the energy for it! I’d much rather just get in bed and watch The Big Bang Theory.

Hmmm, we shall see!

Tomorrow I’m hoping to get up early enough to go to some free yoga. I’ve wanted to go before but I’m always too tired.

I also really want to run again tomorrow, but it’s also time to start tapering soooooo…. #thestruggleisreal


Have a nice day! And HAPPY FEBRUARY!

It’s the month of love! ❤
