Recess Is Over
Hey there. Hope your weekend was a good one. I’m still in denial that today was my last day of freedom from homework until mid-May! My 5-week-long recess is over.
After a relaxing, quiet morning unpacking & organizing, I made myself a Green Monster for lunch before heading to campus to play at the indoor playground (also known as the g.y.m.).
+ 1/4 cup Humboldt Honey Granola
There was a bunch of new “jungle gym” equipment, including 10-15 more cardio machines – there is certainly plenty for all us gym monkeys to play with.
Today’s play date included:
- 30 minutes Elliptical (10 minutes each at incline 5, 10 & 15 @ resistance 5)
- 1.5 miles interval running around indoor track
- 20 lat pulldowns @ 40lbs.
- 20 seated rows @ 40lbs.
- 20 glute presses (each leg) @ 40lbs.
- 2 x 15 squats @ 15lbs.
- 45 bicep curls @ 15lbs.
- 15 “pull weights to chin” @ 15lbs.
- 15 tricep dips
Sweaty and pink-cheeked, I went to Target for my “odds & ends shopping”, and resisted stopping by Starbucks for a warm pick-me-up. Instead, I saved a few extra dollars and made myself a soy cafe au lait in my own kitchen, courtesy of my new Aerolatte milk frother. If you’re curious, a cafe au lait (or misto at Starbucks) is made with coffee, while a latte is made with espresso. Unfortunately, I do not have an espresso maker; hence the not as gourmet beverage.
I had an early dinner tonight of leftover pesto pasta:
I can sense there will most likely be some snacking later tonight. Not too late though…it’s a school night! ; )
