Okay, okay. So by know you know that these aren’t my actual Wednesday eats, nor are they a complete picture of what I eat. But, I’d rather participate with a few of the things that normally make their way into my diet than not participate at all. I love it too much and I know that all of you do, too!
I originally saw this “protein cereal” breakfast mix over at Gabriela‘s blog. Almost like Gina‘s cookie dough cereal, but I think that I prefer Gina’s (sorry Gabriela!). Anyways, it’s easy and since it uses Kashi GoLean there’s over 30 grams of protein in this little bowl! So, it definitely earns its title of “protein cereal”.
4 mile run on Monday (because I did yoga on Sunday instead) and my Kinesiology midterm fitness test on Tuesday morning. 12-minute run, crunches, push-ups, more running (20-yds back and forth) and burpies. I made gains in every single test! The one that I was most proud of was my number of push-ups, but being able to do over 1.5 miles in 12 minutes and more burpies than I ever thought possible felt pretty good as well. After my classes and work, I went home to do some strength training in the form of Jillian’s Ripped in 30, but did Level 1 because of the morning’s butt-kicking and some shoulder soreness.
I have a lot of group projects and assignments going on right now in my courses and at work. I think that I’m keeping up okay (at least that’s what my grades lead me to believe), but as you all know I don’t cope well with having to rely so much on other people getting their work done in time and not just at the last minute. Tomorrow is the day that I take the next step in trying to overturn my Honors Option. I thank my lucky stars that I have my mother so that I know what to do for all of this. I would seriously be lost without her.
To tell you the truth guys, I’m still in my funk a bit. Things seem to be picking up the pace all around me and I feel like I’m just barely keeping up. I’m so used to being ahead of the pack by a mile or so. I need that buffering room so that my stress levels don’t build up to a breaking point. Reaching your breaking point doesn’t have to be a bad thing, but with the majority of my support system over 100 miles away, I just can’t take that happening right now. As you may or may not have noticed, I have been less of a presence in the digital world lately. This is partly due to the fact that my laptop has decided that it no longer wishes to tolerate wi-fi internet, but also I’m caught up in other things and decided that the blog/Twitter/etc. is low-priority. It happens.
