Two months of night school chemistry start tonight 😥 I’m taking the course at the local community college (well, it’s not that local because it’s about a 25 minute drive uptown from my house!) I’ve got three weeks of 6-9 p.m. chemistry followed by my 5 weeks of 8 a.m. – 9 p.m. nutrition + chemistry. Yikes! Luckily it’s all only Monday thru Thursday. I’ve got some ideas on how I’m going to manage the schedule, but I’m really going to have to see what it’s like before I settle in. Even getting 3 meals a day is going to be tough! Much less exercise, studying + coursework and blogging – but I’ll make it happen!
Since the husband works until 6, we won’t be seeing much of each other during the week. We decided that we need to make good use of the morning hours to spend some time together, so we’re going to nix morning workouts for the next 3 weeks to have breakfast together and then walk to the lightrail. That’ll give us a good hour to catch up. Then I’ll go to the gym mid-day and he will after work when I’m in class. Once my all-day classes start, we’ll just have to see each other when we can!
I also have been debating between packing my dinners verses cooking a dinner at 4:30 and planning a snack to have during class. While mentally, I really dislike eating early dinners, I’m not sure if I’ll be able to eat in class, it would make for difficult blog photos, and cooking is always more appealing than packing a meal, so I think the latter makes the most sense. Since I have a good drive to class, I’ll have to start cooking at 4:00 to eat at 4:30. That’s quite early. But it seems to be the most practical option. So I’m going to start having a little lighter lunch to be hungrier by 4:30 and having my “afternoon snack” around 7 or 8. But again, when the all-day classes start, everything will have to be packed or eaten out!
SO for breakfast today, I made Strawberry Banana Oats with flax, wheatberries, skim, and almond butter.
With coffee –
Then we walked to the lightrail! I took a Redbook and did about 50 minutes of walking total. We’ve got a very pretty day out there!
I’m going to enjoy my last few hours of mindless summer before I head to the gym for some weight lifting and get crankin’ for chemistry. I’m nervous since I’ve never been to this campus before!
