every day i wake up at 6:45am (because i have class at 8 every day! aah!) and get ready super fast because the only way i can sit down and have breakfast before class is if i leave my room a little after 7. lately i've been working out later in the day and showering then (or at night), so usually in the morning i throw on my workout clothes since i sweat to death walking to class anyway.
i got breakfast at one of the 'to-go' places but usually i just sit down and enjoy it since i hate eating while i'm walking! today i had cereal, banana, nonfat milk, and coffee.
i went to my chem discussion and then came back to my room to finish my first chem problem set that's due tomorrow. surprisingly i'm actually really liking chem so far! i snacked on some carrots and a string cheese while i was working, and then when i was done i headed down to the gym to get a quick workout in.
i did a 1-mile run and then Tina's "pug" workout which was 100 pushups, 100 sit-ups, and 100 jump squats, broken up into sets and done as fast as you can. i did sets of 30, 25, 20, 15, and 10 and finished completely out of breath and super sweaty! i definitely recommend this workout if you're in a time crunch and want an intense workout.
i came back to my room and made a smoothie in my magic bullet (so glad that i bought one!):
- 1/2 frozen banana
- 1/2 cup frozen pineapple
- 1/4 cup frozen raspberries
- ~1/2 cup vanilla greek yogurt
- 1 scoop vanilla protein powder
- enough water to get it all moving (since i don't have any other liquids to use)
i also had a big scoop of almond butter and some chocolate chips after my smoothie, because even a smoothie needs dessert ;)
after i ate i showered up and sprinted to class - it was super hot today and i was definitely sweating bullets by the time i got there!
i had an hour break in between classes so i grabbed some iced coffee and did a little bit of work. & during my last class i had a baggie of trail mix that i munched on.
i also got to talk on the phone with my mom a little bit today before going to dinner with my bible study group! i am so happy that i got involved with this Christian group on campus because i am loving all the girls in my group already and had so much fun getting to know them tonight.
for dinner i made a big salad with spinach, mushrooms, carrots, cucumbers, chickpeas, hardboiled eggs, feta, and a little bit of ranch dressing. i also had a couple of bites of the pasta bowl, an unpictured chicken breast, and a little bit of (also unpictured) froyo with sprinkles of course!
we had our bible study after dinner and i just got back from that - so now i've got my face in my books and need to get a little more work done before bed! of course i found out that this week's episode of Switched at Birth is online, too, so now i've got to stay focused and avoid the temptation to watch that, haha :)
happy WIAW everyone!
what's your favorite 'quick and dirty' workout that you do when you're pressed for time?
