It’s time for my favorite part of the week, WIAW. These have become a staple of my blog the last few weeks, which surprises me but it’s all good. Speaking of food, I updated my recipe page. You can take a gander but it’s mostly just pancakes and waffle ideas.
Last week, I was asked to include my whole day including workouts and work and everything. I don’t mind doing that once in a great while but having a timetable of my day seems so boring (to me I guess because I do it everyday).
6:00 am wakeup and eat breakfast, read blogs…whatever.
I really wish my gym didn’t open at 7, but it does. If it opened at 6, I’d brave the cold and go before so I didn’t have to shower and go straight to work.
7:30 Gym time
I spend an hour on the elliptical followed by showering and being a real girl and get to work at 9. (My job is odd hours sometimes and it requires me to work nights, weekends, whatever depending on the day. Sometimes I work 8:30-4:30. Some days I work 12-8).
Work 9-4:30. I’m not going to go into a lot of details about my work but it was pretty busy. Obviously during this time I had lunch. We went to the dining hall which was pretty good. I have come to terms that I would rather go to the dining hall then eat at one of the al la carte places because the dining has a lot of more healthy options and I can choose what I want…versus being stuck with one item. I got a random assortment of whatever was going in that photo. Asparagus is so expensive in real life so I practically got all of it like no big deal…
If you didn’t know, I work on a college campus in the health center and they pay for me to eat lunch there most days. As well as we have meetings there or I meet with students in a more comfortable place there. So I eat at lot on the actual campus. (Which my undergrad had better food, but this is fine too ;))
Then from 4:45-6 I spend another hour at the gym. That particular day I was feeling pretty good (also still somewhat full from the dining hall). I had a nice and pretty moderate workout.
From 6-7, I grilled up some steak and whatever vegetables I had in my fridge. O days I go to the dining hall I get more then enough of my fair share of veggies because I can eat as many as I want and then normally have more for dinner. I cannot say that for days I don’t but I’m making best use of my money right? Vegetables are expensive and I’d rather spend it on gas station coffee.
7-10 is spent as personal time. Honestly, I never really accomplish anything in those three hours. Sometimes I call my parents, read more blogs, watch trashy TV…if I need to answer a few emails with work I will…but other then that I don’t.
This particular night I spent a good portion wasting time looking at Halloween Costumes. Don’t worry it’s real life.
Question for you:
- 1. What did you do today?
- 2. What is/was your favorite thing to get at a dining hall?
