Happy Tuesday Night and Happy (Almost) Halloween!
Unfortunately, I’m not able to go out with what feels like every single student at my university tonight because I have to study for a silly accounting midterm. When will professors learn to build the syllabus around our schedules?!
Oh well, just because my classes mess up my Halloween schedule, they don’t have to mess up the WIAW schedule. Head on over to Jenn’s blog to see more WIAW submissions :)
I started my morning with a trip to the gym with my friend, Charlotte. She went on the elliptical while I ran, and then we pedaled away on the bikes for a bit.
For breakfast, I had two eggs and two egg whites with mushrooms and carrots.
For lunch, I made a big bowl of oat bran. While it was in the microwave, I had a some mixed greens with bleu cheese dressing– I’ve been trying to incorporate more veggies into my day. The oat bran was sweetened up with a banana and some chocolate chips, and then topped with vanilla almond milk. (Also, there were a few handfuls of chocolate chips on the side, yummm)
While taking notes for my astronomy class, I munched a crisp pear.
Before dance team practice, I had an english muffin with strawberry jam.
After dance practice, I made a quick dinner of two eggs and two egg whites (repetative, much?), some baby carrots, a Boca vegan burger, and a bit of bleu cheese (still loving this brand).
For “dessert,” I grabbed a pack of these Nature Valley granola bars as I headed out the door to an observation session for my astronomy class. We looked at a few stars, the Andromeda Galaxy, Mars, and the craters of the Moon. I wouldn’t suggest trying to stargaze in the middle of urban Los Angeles…
Because I was near the gym, I figured I would spend the first bit of my long night of studying for my accounting midterm on the treadmill. I did 30 minutes of walking on the ‘mill, and then a couple minutes of core work.
After that, it was time for a bit of study fuel.
I’ll probably have more snacks while studying, it’s gonna be a late night!
PS- I know that I worked out a lot today, but our dance costumes aren’t forgiving! They are tiiiiiiiiight.
Q4U: I’m going to ask the most obvious question… What did you dress up as / What are you going to dress up as for Halloween?
I still haven’t dressed up in a costume this year and I don’t even own one! I need to get with the holiday spirit.
