Tuesdays are generally my really long days. I go non-stop from 7:30 am to 7:30 pm. Today was a little bit longer – kind of. For some strange reason, my professor believes that if she starts an hour late (due to a meeting), we need to go an hour later. Ugh! That means we had class until 8:10 tonight. That makes for a long day.
However, my day got a little “shorter” when I showed up to observe a social studies class and there wasn’t a class to be seen. It was a testing day for the sophomores – so the seniors (who I observe) didn’t have to come in until later. So, I talked to my teacher (who is also my professor) and we went over the plans for the next lesson I’m going to teach. I was able to head home and work on some homework. It was a nice break. 🙂
The day started off with a Fiber One blueberry muffin and a yogurt. I was surprised at how delicious the muffins are. They are a bit small, but pairing it with a yogurt is perfect.
Lunch was awesome – a baked chicken breast with a bit of lemon-pepper marinade, some peas and edamame and a little bit of rice.
It was nice and filling. I didn’t even need anything sweet. 🙂
I was off to class after lunch. It was pretty painful. I was watching the clock the entire time. It’s a bummer because I love the content – LOVE IT! It’s a comparative politics class. (Yes, I’m a nerd. I know!) But, my professor is terrible. He just talks – no outline, no notes, nothing. It’s frustrating.
After class, I decided to have a green monster to hold me over until dinner. It was a good one – spinach, kale, Juice+ chocolate protein powder, flax seeds, banana, peanut butter and a little bit of honey. I managed to keep the size down a little bit.
But, here’s a word of advice – if you plan on swimming, don’t drink one of these bad boys before you go. It’s not a good idea! It just sat in my stomach. Oh well!!
I did swim with the girls today. They got a kick out of it – they kept correcting my strokes and telling me what to do. One girl just laughed at me the whole time. I love it. At least we can keep it fun. 🙂
200 Swim/200 Kick/200 Pull
8 X 50 on 1:00 (choice)
3 X 100 on 1:40 (I was supposed to do 6 – I was too tired!!)
8 X 25 on :30
3 X 25 sprints – from a start
1 X 150 cooldown
In the end I wish I was able to do more – but I was so out of swimming shape. And, on top of that, my asthma was acting up and I didn’t have my inhaler. I hated not being able to do what the girls were doing – but I guess I have to consider that they have been training all season for this. I was proud of myself for getting in. That’s the most important thing, right?
I left the girls and headed to class. It was long. Boring. Long. Boring. I just wanted to go home.
I got back home and realized I didn’t take ingredients out of the freezer to thaw – and I was way to tired and hungry to wait. The husband and I settled on a Bird’s Eye frozen meal. It was pretty good. We added a bit of ricotta cheese.
We’ll just have the shrimp jambalaya tomorrow. I just have to remember to take the okra out of the freezer!
Alright, off to finish “The Biggest Loser” (They’re in DC! I miss that city so much!) and to find out of my old high school passed a referendum – which included a pool! (We didn’t have one at all when I was in school)
