Hellooooooo :) I haven’t done WIAW in a while because Lauren normally takes the reigns, but I’m doing it today! Without further adieu, let’s thank Jenn for the awesome linkup party and check out What I Ate (at least half of it…)

Today I went to the other half of this semester’s schedule.
- The Science of Human Performance
- Weight Training
- Marketing Fundamentals
First up, The Science of Human Performance… I can already tell I’m going to enjoy this class. It is taught by the same professor as my “Principles of Nutrition and Exercise” course last semester (the one I contributing to all the Exercise Science Notes posts). Some of the topics to be covered include how people can most efficiently train for certain physical activities, metabolism, drugs and ergogenic aids, pulmonary function, oxygen consumption, the muscular system, environmental physiology, etc. Basically, lots of super interesting things!

Next, I went to Weight Training. We just went over the syllabus and learned what the class will entail. Each day we will meet for an hour; the first 5-10 minutes are lecture, and the remainder of class is time to lift weights freely. This means that I will have set time in my schedule to continue doing LiveFit. Talk about convenience! It still is a “class” though; there will be a midterm, final, homework, etc.
Last, I walked to Marketing Fundamentals. It’s held in the same giant lecture hall that my Macroeconomics class is in. I had a hard time understanding my professor because of his accent, but next time I’ll sit closer and hopefully that will help. I really want to learn a lot from this class because I want to see if marketing is my thang.

After class, lunch, and some relaxation, I headed to the gym to run 4 miles (slooooow 9:24 pace while Google Reader-ing) and complete Day 16 of LiveFit.
I altered it a bit… I didn’t do the Incline Dumbbell Curl or Hammer Strength Lat Pull because I
couldn’t find the machines was lazy. However, I did do 3×10 on the Shoulder Press machine… that counts for something, right?!

I’m loving the meals at DG, but I’m finding it difficult to get protein in the later half of the day. Hopefully there are some more vegetarian protein sources available at lunch/dinner soon because protein bars are expensive!
Overall, it was a good day. Now that I’ve had the official first day of class for all my courses, am I allowed to wear workout clothes only? Dressing up is a painnnn.
Q4U: Interested in reading about some of the interesting topics we discuss in The Science of Human Performance?
Q4U: Best thing you ate today?
Probably the ThinkThin bar… those things are magical, especially the Creamy Peanut Butter one!
