Diving Right In

FOOD

Pancake Sunday!

Repeat of last weekend: Pumpkin-Chocolate-Chip-Raisin.

I still didn’t feel very good today, after yesterday’s bar debacle, so I’m still trying to keep things fairly bland and easy to digest for now. May be a day or so more before I start feeling completely back to normal and feeling good the majority of the time.

Lunch and snack was on the fly because mom and I had to go to Best Buy to get some things and then the movie right after.

I was a hangry beast for dinner, since I couldn’t really eat at the theater. It was a really good movie though! Go see Bridesmaids!

Massive salad beast: spinach, bulgur, broccoli, cukes, hummus, and balsamic. I’m really starting to like balsamic on my veggies.

LIFE

First day of school! Well, sort of. My new weekly routine will consist of waking up earlier than I have for the past year, scarfing down an easy to make AND digestible breakfast, and getting to class by 8am. Get out of that class at 9:50 (50min lecture + 50min workout). Walk to my next class by 10:20. Get out of that class at 12:10. Eat whatever mess of a lunch I threw together that morning while either reading, studying, or doing internet stuff. Then work 1:30-4:30 and catch a bus home because my mom can’t drive me. Yeah, I’ll be a bit busy.

I’ll be sure to go more into depth with my classes once I know what we’re actually going to be doing. Although, I’m sort of wishing that I had taken the Spanish placement test when I first got here during orientation. Spanish 101 is going to be much easier than I thought it would be given that I haven’t taken a Spanish class in 4 years. I remember a lot more than I thought I would and the material is actually a lot more elementary than I thought it would be. Hopefully I will still learn something new!

Since it was the first day of class, it was essentially all going over the syllabus, but I already have homework! Yay for the speediness that is a 7-week course. I don’t mind too much, though. I had so much extra time today with classes getting out early that I did the majority of it before I even had to go to work!

I did an odd thing last night when I was getting myself an evening snack. Without even realizing it, I measured out my peanut butter. It literally was not even a conscious thought for me to measure out my food. I know that peanut butter has always been something that I’ve struggled with, but it was just scary/weird that I did this automatically and really goes to show just how ingrained these ED behaviors have become for me after all these years.

FITNESS

Guess what I did yesterday? I signed up for another race. My very first 10K. It’s a little over a month away from now and not really all that close to where I live, but I think that it will be a really nice little training run for that weekend. Plus I get a medal for finishing. I want me some medals! It’s called the Solstice Run and it’s going to be extremely early in the morning, but I think it’ll be a really good time. You can check out the race here.

We didn’t do anything in my Kinesiology class, so I still planned on doing my weekly yoga session. However, I’m sorry to say that Bob was not my guru this week. I’m bored with my one yoga DVD right now and so instead hit the internet to find a few short yoga flows and decided to put them all together to make a 15ish minute yoga routine and then did some ab work after. I just really wasn’t feeling doing much of anything after yesterday’s circuit workout and then today’s emotional and physical exhaustion, but I really needed to do some yoga and stretch.

Would you rather take a class and finish it in 7 weeks or draw it out to 13 weeks (and cover the same amount of material)?

  1. It really depends on the class for me. If it was something simple and not critical (cough, history) I would prefer to take it quickly and get it over with, but if it were a more advanced class and had a lab that went with it I would probably rather take it slow and not overwhelm myself with cramming 5 days a week.

  2. I love balsamic on veggies. Everyone at my school can’t stand the smell of it so they hate it when I make salads for lunch – doesn’t stop me from eating it 😉

  3. I struggle with pb too… it’s one of the few things that I will sometimes measure out. I hope you’re doing well with your no-calorie-counting!

    I wouldn’t like 13 week terms- I’d rather have 7 weeks. At my university, we do 10 week terms with the “condensed” version being 3 weeks. You really can’t take more than 1 condensed course at a time (unless its a super easy class) because they move SO fast! They meet M-F for 2 hours and 40 minutes. The ones I am doing this summer also start at 8 am. I just don’t understand it. Almost every class offered starts at 8- WHY??!!!! It’s killer! It would be fine if I didn’t have to be functional and awake enough to understand what the professor is talking about.. oh yeah, and don’t forget the early bird exams! Whew, man, can’t wait for ’em! 😉

    Happy studying!
