Day two of my first week of classes. Today I also had two classes-educational psychology and advanced set theory and logic. Educational psychology I have heard bad things about. I know many people who have taken the class and have not passed. It is about a 50-50 ratio. The teacher is a tad “off,” but hopefully that will not be me. I’m going to have to put a lot of effort into that. Set theory and logic is interesting and it is actually the same teacher that I had last semester and also for my other class modern algebra. She is great, and I have no bad thoughts about that class-yet.
My day begins on Tuesdays at about 6:45am. My first class is at 8, which I do not really mind because I am a morning person. I did not have pancakes today. I actually made a berry smoothie. It consisted of 6 ounces of Chobani vanilla Greek yogurt, ½ cut of fiber one cereal, ½ cup of mixed berries and ½ scoop of Isopure protein. It was very delicious and filling.
11:00am-my boyfriend and I went to the dining hall. I had one piece of grilled chicken and 2 potato bites again. I also had a salad with tomatoes, banana peppers and spinach. I was still really hungry so I went back up and ordered a sandwich. The sandwich consisted of wheat bread, roast beef, American cheese, tomatoes, lettuce and peppers. It was a pretty healthy run I would say.
This is what a male athlete can eat without gaining aka my boyfriends plate:
Insert swimming laps in the freezing cold pool. My college pool was so cold today. They turn the heat off during the summer time so it comes back at about 70 degrees. That is unreasonable but it isn’t like I can do too much about it ha.
3:00pm I had a prerace snack of the protein and fiber one. It really works well in my stomach while running. I didn’t take another photo because it looks the same as yesterday.
Insert my first cross country race ever. It was unofficial but it was really fun. The course had two gigantic hills which were really intense. The course was hilly and my final time was 22:15. I was 30th overall between men and woman (I think there were 2-3 girls in front of me) out of I believe 70 or 80. For my first race, I cannot complain at all. It was really fun but I cannot get over that you can hear and see people while running. With swimming your face is in the water and you cannot see how others are feeling.
7:00pm off to the dining hall. Ah-I have been eating a lot lately. I’ve been really hungry but I haven’t been working out as much this week. For dinner I had 1 baked potato, ½ cup of corn, 2 halves of a quesadilla, 5 pieces of watermelon, 3 tofu raviolis and 2 pieces of pork. Needless to say probably about 1000 calories. That puts me at about 2000 for the day.
