Who would have thought that at this time last week I was laying around crying over missing home and having nothing to do all day? Not this girl. I literally threw myself into my new life this week and it has been pretty awesome thus far. In honor of WIAW, I’m documenting (some of) my recent eats for you.
Slept till 10 (I must have been really overtired), went to target for school supplies, picked up books and my new water bottle, met with my advisor to have my course overload papers signed and discuss how the intro chem class is going to be run (I’m helping her develop a new course structure), handed in my winter internship evaluations, heated my legs, lifted, ran 7 miles in the rain, forgot my watch was wrong and showed up to lifeguard an hour early, came home to shower, then went back to the pool until 9. What. A. Day.
First day of school! Woke up at 7:30, read blogs and ate breakfast (a new one for me, if you remember correctly)
Went to my first two classes of the semester! Tuesdays/Thursdays are going to be my “easy day” with my communications classes. First I had research methods in communication so I’m going to be writing a 25 page paper on a topic of my choice. I’m thinking it will have to do with nutrition/food/healthy living/running of some sort. My second class is pop culture. Another easy one. The best part? They’re over by 11! Usually I’ll be racing off to my internship, but this week I just get to relax until practice at 4.
I came home, made lunch, filled in my planner (does anyone else LOVE doing that?) and headed off to the weight room to lift before…a speed workout. Obviously this means I had to fuel with my favorite kashi protein and fiber bar in chocolate caramel. Oh, and because I was extra hungry, a zbar too. Good thing, since we ran 9.5 miles (5×1000 at 5K pace, 4×200 all out, and then a buttload of warmup/cool down).
Oh, and then another night with the nuggets at the pool while eating some cheese tortellini and green beans and TJ’s dark chocolate caramel wedges (Ice cream and cereal followed when I came home. I was a starvin’ marvin yesterday). Sometimes I wonder why I sign up for so many night shifts. Guarding from 6-9 is never a fun time. And I get to do it all again tonight, and every wednesday for the next 3 months.
How are your weeks looking so far?
I’m finally finding my groove and I couldn’t be happier. Well, I could, since I’m still missing home, but I feel like the week has been a complete 180 from last week and that’s such a great feeling.
