Morning was spent making this huge chart of all of the most important enzymes + hormones for carbohydrate metabolism and reviewing them with Victoria at the coffee shop –
I highly recommend charts as a way to compartmentalize lots of confusing scientific information! Both the organization and the writing helps ingrain the concepts in your head.
By the way, this pen ROCKS MY WORLD!! It’s a Cornpen by Eco Pens and I got it at BlogHer off of the bing able table. I got it because it was cute and small, but the pen part is amazing to write with. I have 3 and one just ran out of ink. Going to find more online somewhere even if that means writing the company! Looks like you can get them with your logo on them. KERF pens perhaps!?
While studying I had a French press cup of Butterscotch Toffee Coffee at Dilworth Coffee! My do I love the aroma of that flavor. [Yay iphone photo!]
When I got home from studying at 12:30 I wasn’t really that hungry yet. I think the 10AM coffee + high protein overnight oats were a lot to digest. So I decided to just go straight to the gym so I could enjoy the rest of my afternoon without it hanging over me. So I went, sped there as fast as I could, did 30 minutes on the ET and then sped home. I was pedaling so fast!!
By the time I got home it was almost 2PM and I was certainly hungry by then!! I kept chanting in my head "hungry, hungry, hot dog." I don’t know why I chant when I’m famished?!
Luckily I had lunch all planned out and just heated it up and ate!
And Applegate Farms organic hot dog on one of Matt’s buns that I toasted in the oven while I showered + ketchup + mustard.
A few leftover okra fries from the other night’s dinner
A row of peaches
And the last of the Food Should Taste Good jalapeno chips in the middle
It was an awesome lunch and left me more than replenished.
Metabolism is calling!
