I am revamping my blog a little bit. I have already made a bright and colorful background because I would classify myself as a bright and colorful person. The grey background was not as cheery as I would have liked. If you ever see me in the outside world, I am probably wearing neon clothing. Right Now-I’m wearing a bright yellow hoodie and sky blue running shorts.
I am also going to add a new section with different articles that I will be writing. Many people have asked what I did to beat the freshman 15, so I will begin there. If there is any other ideas you want to contribute, please by all means send me an email or leave a comment. A few other ideas such as time management, the benefits of cardio versus weight training, how I beat binge eating have popped into my mind. I have even had a request for swimming versus running. I’m not sure how I will even begin to write that one. So if you have any ideas of topics, please don’t hesitate.
I am by no means a registered dietician, so please consult your doctor before following any advice I give. My advice is based purely from personal experience and reading.
Some people hate 8am classes. I am not one of those people. I would rather have all my classes in the morning and get them over with. Granted, I would rather never have educational psychology period, but I would rather just get it over with I suppose. This morning my alarm clock went off at 7 am. I’m going to keep it set all week at that, because I can get my runs in before class on MWF and it gives me 40 minutes to get ready for my 8am class and than power walk to class.
I wasn’t sure what I was going to have for breakfast until the last moment today but I decided to make a Green monster. It was my favorite version thus far, because it was thick. I like my milkshakes/smoothies/ect to be eaten with a spoon rather than sucked through a straw.
Today’s green monster consisted of the following:
7:40 am Green Monster de Hollie
½ scoop of Isopure protein
5.3 ounce container of Chobani Greek Vanilla Yogurt
2 cups fresh spinach
½ cup of crushed fiber one cereal
¼ cup milk
It was my favorite Green monster to date, so I’ll have to make it again. (When I go to the store and get more Greek yogurt)
Insert educational psychology and set theory and logic here. I got a 100 on my quiz from Thursday. I really needed to start off well, and that made me quite pleased the rest of the day.
11:00am My boyfriend and I went to Quiznos. I am somewhat obsessed with that place, but never have the time to go. Today, it was still raining so I got a cup of chicken noodle soup and a steak melt on flatbread (my favorite). It did not even sit in my stomach when I swam laps today.
Today I forced myself to go swim laps. I was going to go later tonight, but I know if I go swim tonight I will not meet my goal of getting to bed earlier. So noon hour of lap swim saw me today.
2:00pm-Snickers marathon bar and plum. Both do not have photos.
I went for an easy jog today again. Just to log my hours, one hour of slow easy running. It started raining about halfway through my running, so I shivered my way to the end. I then proceeded with more hot cocoa and my boyfriends personal heater.
5:30pm-I went to Becky’s Place. This is nicer version of our dining hall. I had a grilled Panini, with chicken breast, mozzarella cheese, tomato and basil. Also included was about a cup of corn and a cup of fruit salad. I was not impressed with the fruit salad but the corn was quite tasty
Now I’m off to do some reading for my educational psychology class…the class that just keeps giving. What has been your least favorite class throughout all of your schooling?
