Apples on Apples (and other food as well)

Hello!

Today is my day off from running and lifting which is great because my legs aren’t in any mood do any cardio/strength training. Yesterday afternoon I lifted at the MAC gym with some of the other students in the Crossfit club. On Monday’s we don’t go to the Crossfit gym. I have actually never been there yet! I am hoping to go tomorrow afternoon. We did squats and bench press. I don’t think I’d ever done max squats before yesterday because in soccer we only lifted to prevent injury. Boy do I feel it today! Also, last night the event that had been cancelled last week got rescheduled yay so I did a lot of swing dancing yesterday as well. It was a good time!!

Yesterday’s lunch consisted of a mini Lara bar (peanut butter cookie kind), an apple, a corn muffin, and apple cider!!! When I went to Honey Pot Hill I bought some, but didn’t open it until yesterday. It was such a treat. I really love apples. If you haven’t noticed, I’ve been eating at least one a day. I’ll be really sad when I eat all the apples I got apple picking. The dining hall apples are terrible because they soft when you bite into them. I can’t stand that! Then I’ll either have to go grocery shopping (which probably won’t happen) or wait until I go home for Thanksgiving to enjoy a delicious crisp locally grown apple.


For dinner I fixed myself up a salad with lots of veggies and chicken. The salad consisted of mesclun greens, tomatoes, carrots, chickpeas, cucumber, black pepper, balsamic vinegar, and olive oil. I also made myself a bowl with a little pasta, and mostly broccoli and corn (yes, more vegetables!). For dessert, my usual whole grain bread with honey and peanut butter. Overall a satisfying and filling meal!

 

This morning I had cereal for breakfast! It had been a while. I made myself a bowl with Bran and Special K and I ate it with vanilla soy milk. I also ate part of an egg white (sadly half it was overcooked) and fruit (banana and cantaloupe ). I also drank a cup of coffee. Need to stay awake for my 6 hrs. of straight class today!

 

Have a wonderful Tuesday!
