My name is Angela, and it was a week since my last workout. Don’t worry though! I fixed that this morning with an easy jog/walk in the park today. It wasn’t fast by any means and I probably could have gone longer but I had set my watch for only 5 intervals. I took some time to stretch though afterwards which felt wonderful. My legs were killing me all weekend from my leg workout last Tuesday which is why I took a hiatus for a week from the gym. It felt good to get back out there! And with how amazingly beautiful the weather is today, I couldn’t pass up a run! I’m also going for a walk with Lauren this afternoon to enjoy this gorgeous weather again!
Nothing too exciting to report otherwise. I haven’t been tracking my non-Paleo foods like I said I would but I plan on getting back at it starting today. I don’t tend to overeat on “approved” foods so it is really the “other” foods that are a problem for me – both for my health and my waistline!
I’ve also started thinking about my plan for the upcoming school semester. I will be commuting over an hour to get to campus and then spending up to 10 hours on campus. This means I’ll need to pack at least 2 meals every day to take with me. I want to batch cook on Sundays so that I can just grab-and-go on the weekdays with minimal prep. I’m thinking that jar salads, casseroles, stews, lunch meat roll ups, and paleo muffins should work pretty well.
I need to get some hot food lunch box containers though before I can do that because I am assuming I won’t have a refrigerator or microwave. I also have to make sure nothing is too heavy because I have to carry it around with me all day along with my bookbag. This all sounds like loads of fun right?
I started to work on a daily schedule to get me through the weeks. This is my first draft but I put in train times and class locations so I am fully prepared.
You see my longest day is Wednesday and I can never, ever miss the 8:45 train because the next one after that isn’t for 2 more hours! I would be getting home after midnight. Yuck! So hopefully we will always get out on time at the latest. I might talk to the professor about it too, just letting her know that I absolutely have to leave by 8 (in case I have to leave while she’s still teaching).
Well, enough babbling for today. I have some work I have to take care of and maybe run some errands before the hubs gets home. Always lots to do!
