November’s End

Hi. How was your last day of November? Are you as excited for December as I am?

I had a casual, uneventful day. I got to school a little before noon, anticipating another dreadful microbiology lecture, to find a note on the door: “class cancelled”. It’s ridiculous the little amount of actual class time I’ve had this semester. So, a Plan B was in order…I enjoyed my AB&J sandwich a little earlier than planned and headed to the g.y.m. I may have popped a few dark chocolate covered espresso beans in the locker room for a burst of energy : )

(whole wheat bread, Justin’s Maple Almond Butter, apricot jam)

Monday’s movement:

  • 30 minutes strength conditioning & stretching
  • 30 minutes treadmill (15 walk/15 run)
  • 30 minutes stationary bike + 30 Minute Meals

I had even more time to waste before my next class at 4:00pm, so I moseyed on over to Starbucks and had a double take of yesterday (iced decaf 2% latte).

After class, I had no choice but to go grocery shopping (unless I wanted a granola bar for dinner). I’m not sure why, but TJ’s shelves were empty. They were out of several things that were on my list. I think I’ll survive without Raisin Bran.

I felt my day was a bit carb-heavy, so I made a salad for dinner to try to balance out my eats:

(baby lettuces, avocado, red onion, pumpkin seeds & chevre + olive oil & balsamic

…and a beautiful pumpkin persimmon)

I found this treat at TJ’s. It had my name on it: “The Dark Chocolate Lover’s Chocolate Bar“.

Ok…I love dark chocolate, but 85%…that’s a little too much cocoa. I think 75% is my max. I have no doubt that this bar will be gone in a couple days though : )

Happy December Eve!

Little To Say

After receiving the sad news this morning, I needed to get out of the house and clear my head. I went to The Resort (a.k.a. my school’s new gym) and had a short & sweet workout:

  • 10 minutes: run around indoor track
  • 20 minutes: stationary bike
  • 15 minutes: treadmill
  • 15 minutes: upper & lower body conditioning

I made a quick stop at Target – it always cheers me up – before coming home for lunch:

0181/2 sandwich w/ hummus, Havarti, cucumber & lettuce + 1 Fuyu persimmon

Going to go tackle my to-do list…
