Not sure where the time has gone today, but I’m sure it has something to do with hours and hours of chemistry I got out of bed at 6:30 and after checking email and waking up, I worked for 5 hours straight. The husband made us Wheatberry Trail Mix Oatmeal around 8:00 when he got up:
I requested a coffee this morning (first one in 2 weeks, I think??!) but since we were out of milk, he made me a cold one instead (hemp milk doesn’t mix in hot coffee for some reason – it separates). Why were we out of milk when I just bought some yesterday!? Because the milk was sitting on the floor of the garage when I paused to get the keys out of my purse!!!!!!!! Hot as a dog too. So sad. Anyways, I don’t really like iced coffee that much so I only had a few sips and gave him the rest.
I wrapped up my first round of studying/work at 12:30. Two choices : 1) eat lunch and workout later (or possibly not go at all, but since I pretty much took off yesterday I wanted to go) or 2) Workout then and eat a very late lunch.
I knew I’d enjoy my afternoon so much more if I went, and I wasn’t really hungry at all for lunch, so I had the brilliant idea of taking my Sports Nutrition textbook to read on the elliptical . Fastest 45 minutes of my life! I can’t believe how much time flew. While I’m an expert at reading and exercising, highlighting and exercising is quite impossible. There green highlighter scratches all over the place. (Whoever asked me about strides per minute on the ET, while reading about Watts and METS I remembered to check the display and noted I probably average about 100 strides per minute. That’s at level 10 and resistance 14.)
We also did a little weight lifting at the end of the workout. By the time we were home, showered and dressed, it was nearing 3:00! So strange how some days I can barely make it to 11:00 a.m. without a snack and other days I get so many more hours out of breakfast.
We not only have an abundance of lettuce, but also a package of deli meat the husband brought home from work yesterday. So sandwiches were required at this meal. I made one with very old stale 9 grain bakery bread (didn’t realize how old it was until my first bite!) plus 1 slice of salami , 1 slice ham, romaine, sprouts , cilantro pesto , and jalapeños .
Cherries !! I don’t buy them much because they’re so expensive, but they were $2.99 a pound yesterday so I got a small bag! LOVE them!
Veggies + TJ’s kalamata olive hummus
And a peach , which I took one bite of and decided it wasn’t worth it. While ripe in smell and touch, it had absolutely no sweetness at all. Like eating a flavorless fruit. I was full enough at this point, so I just ended lunch there. The husband’s was bad too (but he ate the whole thing!) I have a feeling all 5 of them are bad. So sad. I hate throwing away food, but we shouldn’t eat them if they’re gross.
It’s 3:30 now. We had plans to go to a free wine tasting this afternoon but I still have lots of studying to do and the wine tasting will be over in an hour. What to do!? Not sure what our dinner plans are yet either, but we’re required to eat here because of fridge is full of stuff to use up.
