I’ll get into it more later, but I’m so excited – I finally got to dust off my running shoes again! Running is truly one of my favorite things on earth but due to laziness/stress/packed schedules/feet injuries I haven’t been since summer! I am elated right now.
To rewind, I hurried this morning so I could finish some grading at school so I ate this Cliff Bar on the train for breakfast.
Peanut Toffee Buzz is pretty yummy, there are big toffee-ish chunks which definitely put a smile on my face.
I’m in too good of a mood to even think about how bad my first two classes were today, but suffice to say that in spite of packing lunch last night I was so angry that I walked out of the building without a coat the minute the bell rang and had to buy something. I commiserated with with a coworker and we didn’t have much time to eat so I had only (unphotographed) 2.5 garlic knots.
As frustrating as the day was, I made myself stay at school until I had finished all my grading and put up all my bulletin boards. It was nice to feel accomplished.
When I got home I changed as quickly as possible for the gym before I could change my mind 🙂 I paused only to eat a tablespoon of my new natural peanut butter for a little protein kick.
A and I ran the .63miles to the gym to warm up. Once there, I ran on the treadmill for 20minutes/2miles. I realize that is a warm-up for most of you but it’s been months since I’ve been to the gym and my bad ankle definitely would not have allowed more. On the walk home I believe I used all of the above to describe my joy level to A – “psyched,” “rocked my socks,” “elated,” and “cloud9.”
We came home in time for “House,” which also makes me happy. I ate leftovers while I watched.
This was 2/3C cooked quinoa, 4oz baked tofu, veggies, and 2t feta cheese.
Looking at my meals for the day I could use a snack, but I’m not sure, we’ll have to see in the morning. Have a super night!
