For some reason, it’s always the songs I don’t really like that end up getting stuck in my head for days on end, to the point where I end up wanting them to come on the radio. Exhibit A: every song by the Black Eyed Peas.
This morning was pretty productive… I churned out a short paper (after tomorrow’s class I am done with French class FOREVER) and had a killer workout at the gym.
While making lunch, I was snacking so much that I finally just had some Tofurkey so there would be some lunch left to eat.
At the gym, I did 20 minutes on the Stairmaster, 35 minutes (6.5 miles) on the bike, and 1/2 mile on the treadmill. It’s been three or four weeks since I’ve run, and honestly I’ve been a little scared of doing it recently because I’m worried I’ll go back to hating it. The five minutes were effective: I can still do it, and I got to see the end of Boyz n the Hood 😉 I also did arms/back and abs.
Total time: 1 hour 32 minutes

I brought a big salad of romaine, zucchini, tomatoes, green bell pepper, hummus, feta, and a Morningstar Farms Grillers Vegan burger that I heated up in the gym microwave. I brought Annie’s Lite Honey Mustard Vinaigrette (surprise!) but the hummus got all mixed through in transit so I only ended up using a little for the last bit.
Before I left the house, I microwaved a diced apple with cinnamon and mixed it into nonfat plain yogurt with a little honey. Delish, even if it wasn’t warm.
My friend was working at the front desk at the gym and gave me one of these Persian rolled cookies. It’s made with cinnamon, cardamom, cloves, and other spices… pretty darn tasty.
I was so full from lunch (which was only a little over an hour ago!) but I think I’m going to have a Super-Charge Me cookie or something. We’ll see!
Hope you’re enjoying the last of your weekend 🙂
