Week 2, Day 1 & Some Eats

Hey everyone! Happy Sunday! I hope it’s been super relaxing for everyone.

I woke up this morning starving, as per usual. I swear I have the appetite of a sumo wrestler… It can’t be normal. I am obviously still waiting rather impatiently for my protein powder so this morning was another Berry Oatmeal/Bran with 4 egg whites and salsa. You guys must be like “how on earth do you eat that everyday?!” Well I have two answers, it’s delicious and I often don’t mind eating the same thing over and over again if it’s good. I tend not to ever get sick of food. Unless we are talking about back in high school when all my Mom made was baked chicken flavored with absolutely nothing with a side of white rice and frozen peas. Yeah… Gross. I couldn’t eat chicken for like 3 years after that. It almost made me go vegetarian and we all know how much meat I tend to eat. It was really that horrific.

After breakfast I went to the gym and completed the Pull Workout that I have been doing recently. I am thinking about upping the intensity and doing it twice a week now instead of just once. I think my muscles can handle it. So I will probably do it again later on in the week. I’m really loving this program that I created. It’s been challenging, but also super awesome. I think I can feel myself getting stronger as dorky and weird as that sounds. I have noticed a big difference over the past couple of weeks after following it. I have deemed it a success on my part haha. I also completed week 2, day 1 of my Couch to 5k app! This time it was a 5 minute warm up then 90 seconds running, 90 seconds walking, 90 seconds running, 2 minutes walking repeated until you hit the 25 minute marker. Then there was the basic 5 minute cool down. I ran at a 6.5 mph pace, while walking, warming up, and cooling down at a 3.7 mph pace. Overall, I covered 2.3 miles. It felt awesome! I was sweating like a pig though… No surprise there since I have the tendency to sweat like a man. 😉 Super attractive, no? I am planning on doing a vlog sometime this week to talk about my workout routines and training plan in greater depth so be prepared to see my awkward awesome self on camera!

If only I looked this good after "earning my shower..." Sweaty mess people!

I am thinking about doing more vlogs for this channel to spruce things up a bit, since I am sure you all get tired of reading my long, rambling posts on occasion.

After the gym I chugged a scoop of Caramel Toffee Fudge whey protein with water and a couple of handfuls of blueberries and went to the grocery store to pick up a few things for this week. My roommate and I are heading to Pennsylvania at the end of this week so I didn’t end up needing that much. But I am really excited to try some of the new Tone It Up recipes that were released with the last update. I can’t wait to share them with you!

Once I was done grocery shopping I came home to make a quick and healthy taco salad. I cooked the ground turkey with some garlic powder, chili powder, cayenne pepper, cumin, paprika, ground mustard, and Worcestershire sauce and put it on top of baby spinach, red bell pepper, cucumber, tomatoes, salsa, and a little reduced fat cheese. 🙂 It was delicious! However, I was still hungry about an hour later and pounded a huge bowl of Uncle Sam Cereal, Chocolate O’s, and some almond coconut milk. Hungry hippo over here today!

I’m having the last of my leftovers for dinner tonight since I need to finish this paper. Sorry nothing fancy has come from this week food wise, I have been super busy trying to cram a lot of things in for school so I have time to travel on the weekends. I am heading to Martha’s Vineyard in two weeks to get another job and have a seafood feast! I am so stoked I can’t even tell you!!!

And with that I am signing off for the night since I still have 5 pages left of this torturous 20 page term paper on ketamine. Seriously, how much can you say about one drug. I feel like I am being incredibly repetitive. Who wants to be a neuroscience major after reading my blog? Anyone? No takers… I don’t blame you.
