Today was the first day of classes and also the first day I can run again! What a fabulous day…finally something to do with my life.
But it started out awful. My waffle mix was too watery and the heat two high on my waffle maker. So therefore, my waffle got stuck. I spent five minutes (along with burning my fingertips) of poking and prodding trying to free the strawberry and blueberry waffle from the maker.
It resulted in this.
It was still tasty and I got my fruits in. Just not beautiful. I committed a blogger sin. Posting ugly food. I hope you still enjoy my entry.
Did I mention my goal for New Years was to get 25 servings of fruits and veggies weekly? I know it’s not the 5 per day or whatnot but 25 is a big step up for me. It’s about 4 per day or so. Right now I’m at 9 between today and yesterday. Someone help me.
Today’s class schedule was as followed.
9:00am Advanced Modern Algebra
10: Principles of Coaching
11:00 How to sneak away to the treadmill (No not a class but exactly what I did.) I just kind of told my housemates that I had class from 9-12.
2:00 Advanced Calculus
Do you ever notice that upper level math classes just throw the word advanced into it to make you feel good? Advanced calculus is the class after Calc 3 and differential equations. They could have just called it Calculus 4 but they want me to feel good and have bragging rights that I’m “advanced”.
I supposed I’ll explain to you how my day got better.
It was -5 here today as the high. Since my nine and ten classes were literally 20 minutes walking distance from each other, as much as it pained me I knew I had to drive to class today.
I go try and start my car.
Must have been that -30 cold blast we got hit with last night. At least my housemate Kelley was more than willing to drive to class today and then drive me to my next class.
Modern Algebra was fun or as fun as another proof intensive class can be. I haven’t had this professor though and she is crazy so it will be enjoyable.
My coaching class is actually in our athletic building and is a ton of fun. Two people that I quite enjoy talking to Brittany (kick booty 500er) and Cory (didn’t swim this year for personal reasons) are in there.
Then it was time.
Since I’m already in the gym complex and really need a pick-me-up because of how swimming has shaped up to be, I got my run on! I haven’t run in nearly a month so I was hella excited to start again. I got in 6 miles in 50 minutes which is a nice start. You can’t really complain about the beginning of anything.
I had lunch with my housemate Kelley and my new housemate (Kelley’s sister) Jen. It is weird not eating with Aram all the time but I don’t really mind and gives me time to get all my girlfriend bonding on.
Anywho for lunch I had a rye Panini with roast beef, mozzarella, spinach, tomatoes, banana peppers and crushed red peppers. I also had a big bowl of corn. I was just craving some corn, it was so random. Corn is one of favorite veggies I think.
After my 2:00 Advanced Calculus class which is the same people as last semester and the same professor…in the same classroom (obviously the best time of my life), I came back and got ready for swim practice.
We haven’t had a hard swim practice is nearly a week due to the double dose of swim meets last weekend. It wasn’t as bad as I thought I but having a hard set of 400IM’s isn’t my favorite thing either.
3X(100 breastroke-50 kick-50 fly-100 back)
6X25 Freestyle Sprint
4X400 IM hard
8X100 freestyle recovery
5X200 Freestyle interval
6X50 backstroke cooldown
Because it was so cold today, it was certainly a soup night. I heated up southwestern style Progresso and got another serving of veggies. With a piece of Tilapia, it was the perfect meal.
On a side note-sorry I haven’t produced any good recipes lately. I have been rather lazy to try new things but also busy that I don’t have the time. I promise I’ll have a good one out tomorrow. Dealing with pumpkin (and it’s not even pancakes…)
Day 7 A picture of you dressed as someone famous. I honestly have never really dressed as someone famous but sometimes when I’m behind the blocks people tell me I resemble Natalie Coughlin (a famous swimmer-look her up!) So we both wear bathing suits so wala.
Question for you:
1. Are there any celebrities you look similar too?
2. What was your favorite college class?
Mine was Calculus. Don’t judge me. Although backpacking was at the top along with human sexuality. Freshman general education requirement are always a bundle of joy.
3. How do you get your veggies?
