Boy I had the heebie jeebies this morning! I woke up at 5 and left the husband sound asleep despite the 5 two-minute snoozes. Given the gas shortage and the fact that I’m low in fuel, I decided to bike alone today. I took my cell phone in case I fell, and actually passed a number of bikers and runners, so I wasn’t that scared. But what I was scared of were spiders!!! I found a rather large one in our door frame as I left (shudder #1) and saw a huuuuge web hanging off our house (shudder #2) as I climbed on my bike. Fall is spider season here and in our old neighborhood they used to hang down from low trees over sidewalks. I usually make the husband ride in front for the reason, but today it was just me. Luckily there are only 2 lay-lowing areas and I just squinted, put my helmet first and rode. I seem to have made it safely!
At the gym I did 30 minutes on the Stairmaster. Well, I’m not sure how much I did because a man accidentally unplugged my machine and brought me to a sudden stop with somewhere between 1 and 10 minutes left. According to my HRM, I probably did more like 35 minutes. I did some stretching (saved lifting for tomorrow when the husband comes) and biked home.
Before I left my stomach was growling so I had an end piece of Rudi’s Honey Wheat with AB + jam. I’m so glad to have bread slices again!
Breakfast was a classic bowl of granola plank-PB oats.
- 1/3 cup oats/milk/water
- Salt + vanilla
- Half a large banana
- 1 tbsp flax
- 1/5 granola plank
- Spoonful PB
Plus a cafe au lait – unsweet. I like it! I think the trick for me to like coffee/tea without sweetener is to just use more milk. Seems reasonable to me.
Mondays are my most longest day on campus because of Organic lab ( 👿 ) but hopefully it will be pretty painless like it was last week. An organized lab is a painless lab. I think what I hate most about chem labs is that I never feel confident in what I’m doing (and they always take so long!) but last week’s prelab was very informative, so it looks like we’re off to a good start.
