It was oddly very easy to get back in the swing of things after Thanksgiving break. I was expecting a rough adjustment but I think the fact that I only have 15 days left of the semester and that it’s Christmastime has made the transition easier. But it’s also finals time aka the least stressful time of year for college students. Hope you get my sarcasm ;) Here’s a look at a my day and meals from Tuesday. Thanks, Jenn for hosting!
It wasn’t a typical Tuesday because I switched my schedule at work, but normally Tuesday’s involve some office time.
6:00 a.m.– Alarm goes off. I contemplate getting up to workout but the rain makes my decision very easy.
7:00 a.m.– Actually wake up and head right to the kitchen to make breakfast. I had my usual two bowls of oatmeal with fruit and peanut butter. I read blogs and checked social media while eating.
7:45 a.m.– Finish working on a paper for a group project due this morning.
8:15 a.m.– Get ready for the day. I normally don’t take more than 5 minutes to get ready, but I had to look nice yesterday because I had two presentations.
8:45 a.m.– Pack a snack and head to campus early to print my paper and meeting with my group.
9:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m.– I won’t bore you with the details, but just know that I was in class giving my presentations :) In between class I ate a KIND Healthy Grains bar. If you haven’t tried one, you must.
1:00 p.m.- Lunch & laundry. One of my favorite things and one of my least favorite. I put clothes in the washing machine and made a turkey avocado wrap for lunch. I had an apple and one of my almond butter energy bites on the side.
1:30 p.m.-4:00 p.m.– Homework. Ah, the glorious life of a college student. Today I worked on my journalism final project, graphic design work and started typing this post.
4:00-5:00 p.m.- I had the best intention of going for a run, or driving to the on-campus gym but the sudden rain (again) caused a change of plans. I have a very small gym in my condo complex but I never go to it because all the cardio equipment is broken. They do have free weights but only in increments of 5 lbs which, causes me to lift lighter than I normally would.
I warmed up with this a cardio segment. I did this during the bootcamp in Rhode Island and loved it. Complete the first column of each exercise before moving on to the next column (50 jumping jacks, 10 burpees, 10 push-ups, 20 jump squats, 40 mountain climbers, 20 leg raises…then 40 jumping jacks, etc.)
5:15 p.m.– Shower, fold laundry and change sheets. I’m such a procrastinator when it comes to folding laundry. Who else is with me that folding fitted sheets is such a waste of time?
6:00 p.m.– Eat dinner. I made this Monday night and, like I normally do, I made enough for two nights of dinner. Sautéed zucchini noodles with honey mustard chicken, roasted sweet potatoes and toasted almonds.
6:30 p.m.-8 p.m. – Homework Yuck.
8 p.m.– Take a break from homework and read blogs while eating apples with peanut butter and one more of my almond energy bites. I try to only “goof off” on the internet in the morning and at night. If I set aside 30 minutes on both ends for some free time I know I won’t be tempted during the day. I broke that on Cyber Monday though…oops.
9 p.m.– Finish up another group project. Working with Google docs is a necessary evil. I hate when everyone is typing at once.
10 p.m.– Hop into bed, watch a Tivoed episode of Friends, and fall asleep with the TV on. Perfect end to my day.
