My mid-term went well. Anyone want to know what bradycardia means?!
My workout was great – it’s so different to be at the gym at 9:30 compared to 5:30. Although the people are different, it is just as crowded. I always wonder what all those people do for jobs. Perhaps they are students like me, or work nights, or are stay-at-homes or are self employed. I did 30 minutes on the Stairmaster plus 15 on the Stat bike and a few minutes of abs/stretching. I wanted to give the sauna a try since I had some time and just wanted to feel WARM inside and out but I went in to discover there are “no workout clothes allowed” (I was going to wear my sports bra and shorts) and I need a towel to enter, which I didn’t have. I probably could have gone in anyways, but I was too afraid of getting caught! I do want to try it out though. I’ve only been in a sauna once or twice many years ago and the thought of being all warm is so appealing in this dreary weather. On our honeymoon we actually had one B&B we stayed in that had a sauna in our room! But we were too busy drinking fabulous wines to check it out 😉
I had a few almonds after my workout before my commute to Winthrop –
Lunch was fun too! I decided to use some of our beans to make a bean salad. But I also remembered I’d bought a small zucchini and squash, so I sauteed them last night along with some spinach leaves to bulk up about 3/4 a cup of beans. For a “dressing” I use a tsp of sun-dried tomato paste (we have a jar of minced sun-dried tomatoes in oil) along with oregano and dijon mustard. It was delish!
Kashi crackers on the side:
A Pink Lady apple –
And last but not least….pumpkin with pumpkin seeds!
All together –
Today’s lunch was about 530 kcal, 27 grams fiber (!!), and 22 grams protein.
After my mid-term I went for a short walk around campus, which is hard when you have a heavy bag and umbrella to carry around! I need a locker! Anyways, I ventured over to Cupps, a coffee shop right across the street and was THRILLED to discover that it’s really more like a sandwich shop with coffee! They have all kinds of salads and sandwiches for lunch (plus soups in the winter) and most of them are health-minded like homemade hummus. Here’s a link to the menu. They also have information on how they buy local and use organic ingredients whenever possible. I’m totally going to check it out tomorrow for lunch! They have wireless so I can blog there too – sweet!
While I was there I got a hot tea, which I didn’t really want but felt like I should get so I’d have a reason to browse around. Here’s me drinking it illegally in the computer lab –
Off to study, study, study until dinnertime.
