Evening! Sorry about the delayed post… I’ve been moving around all day.
I drove straight to Dunn Bros. from my grandparents’ house to study. When I got there, I looked around and didn’t see the biscotti rack anywhere… turns out they have STOPPED SELLING THEM because no one was buying! This is HORRIBLE news… had I known, I would have gone more often. Sophmore year I literally went every day and got a chocolate hazelnut biscotti and a latte… I swear it helped my brain run. So listen, Dunn Bros., if I don’t graduate it’ll be because of you!
I got a regular coffee with skim milk and a yogurt.
The yogurt had HFCS in it… Old Home , I am really disappointed in you. That yogurt is pretty much the only healthy food option at the shop; everything, although it looks delicious, is of the apple fritter/glazed donut variety.
The rest of my lunch was in two more parts: Shrimp Spring rolls with peanut sauce from Whole Foods:
… and a Maple Nut Clif bar.
When I got to school, I had a surprise package waiting from my parents: dark-chocolate covered matzos and some easter candy. Yep, I’m one of those crazy kids who comes from a mixed background. It’s pretty great- I get to celebrate so many holidays!
I ate a caramel-filled chocolate egg before Step. Just the pick-me up I needed!
Step was hard today, although for some reason I didn’t get the kinds of stats I usually get. After class, I did an twenty minutes on the bike (about 4 miles) while I read a magazine. I really didn’t want to run on the treadmill, and I guess a little cross-training is good for me. I also did some arm and back work, but let my abs be.
Total time: 1 hour 45 minutes
Maximum heart rate: 195 (98%)
Average heart rate: 126 (63%)
Calories burned: 676
I’m not going to lie to you: one of the reasons I stayed late in the gym was because I wanted to wait for dinner because there was a taco bar in the cafeteria! I ate the “insides”: ground tofu, brown rice, refried beans, cheese, lettuce, tomato, and salsa.
I also had some steamed broccoli with BBQ sauce:
And a grapefruit which I proceeded to get all over myself.
I’m now snacking on some chocolate-covered matzo, dates and figs (which are dry and leathery compared to my beloved Nutra Figs) with the remaining half of my Barney Butter sample. I always thought I used a tablespoon or so of nut butter at a time, but I guess I use less than I think! (Yes, I notice when the word “I” appears in a sentence 5 times, too.) I had extra, so I smeared it on the matzo. Holy yum.
Off to do some reading. Do you have the day off tomorrow? I do, but I don’t have class Friday anyway so it’s no biggie… I’m happy for you, though!
Sorry for the rambling post… more so than usual, I mean. My amazing friend Caitlin has started her very own blog… check it out! She’s brilliant.
Have a great night!
