Good morning everyone! I was entirely too busy yesterday to be writing a blog. Did you miss me?? Haha. I just had school and homework all day! I actually would have had time at school since both my classes were canceled again! But I didn’t bring my laptop (lesson learned?). And I can’t say I got any work done really at school either. I had to hang around all day to make sure the afternoon class was canceled. Then I headed home to Rob, ate dinner, and got cracking. Got a lot done and good thing since its due today!
Anyway! What to say today… How about I tell you about my scale again? I know, lots of people say you shouldn’t use it but I don’t think that. I think it is a good measure *sometimes*. Like today. I ate crappy all weekend and yesterday and was feeling frumpy this morning. Let’s just say I did NOT like the number it showed me. Just goes to show that I can’t eat whatever I want just because I ran this weekend (it does qualify me for 1 big splurge meal though! But just 1 meal, not 1 week!).
Yesterday I ran into some issues with nutrition. I was tired. I mean really, really tired driving home. I made it a half hour from campus and decided I needed to get out of the car immediately. I pulled into a Dunkin Donuts and got a pumpkin coffee AND a glazed donut. Let me tell you though, that sugar carried me home. Not the best choice health wise but it was brilliant when you need instant energy. I was totally awake after like 20 minutes, singing along to the radio. LoL. On the bright side, I discovered this cute market with all locally grown fruits and veggies along with lots of spices, jarred items, etc. They are only open until the last week of November. I will have to stop again! I got some “Pumpkin Butter” and can’t wait to try it! I wonder if I could use it in place of the “J” on my PB&J. Hm…
So after that horrible nutritional moment, it got worse! It’s fall and one of the things I forgot on my Fall Love blog was Boo Berry Cereal. My sister said she got some on her Facebook and I knew I was doomed from that moment. I had actually forgotten about it when I was grocery shopping but then there was a huge end cap display at the store! I grabbed a box and it was all down hill from there. I’m not upset with myself though. I have it once a year. Usually, I don’t even finish eating the whole box. So I’m content 🙂 But it really needs to be controlled so next time, I’m measuring 1 serving and that is all I’m having! All about moderation 🙂
Exercise? Well, i’ve accepted the fact that it won’t be happening on Tuesdays and Thursdays. I get up for work at 5:30 AM and get home from school at 8:30 PM. Yep, not happening, so I need to make adjustments in my training schedule. It is just hard to work around my long runs on the weekends! I think Mondays and Wednesdays will be strength training days. The only problem there is that I use those nights to get homework done. Ugh, I need more hours in the day! Or one of these:
I’m coordinated enough to take pictures while I run. Do you think I can do Quantum Mechanics while I run???
That’s it for today. Lots to do! Still not done that homework!! Have a great day!
