Today was my first day of class at a new community college that I’ve never attended before. I’m still going to be going to the one that I went to last year, but that college doesn’t start until the 29th of August. I’m only taking one class at the other community college that started today. I am so excited! That’s really weird and nerdy of me, I know. Is it strange that I actually look forward to learning and going to classes? Probably. And I’ll probably even think that I am weird for writing this when I have 4 term papers and 6 tests to study for in about a month. But for now, I’m looking forward to it, especially the class that I started today which is a nutritional science class. I literally shrieked out loud when I saw the books I needed for the class because they looked right up my alley. Again, I’m bizarre, but I’m okay with that.
Also, today is Wednesday! AKA it’s WIAW. Thanks to Jenn for hosting every week! Okay, I think that’s enough, between new textbooks and WIAW, I’ve had plenty of excitement for the day 😉
For breakfast (9:00 AM), I had a large bowl of Fiber One Nutty Clusters & Almonds with Almond milk and a bowl of (unpictured) Fage Greek yogurt. Fiber one just came out with this cereal and it’s SO good. I love it so much. And it has 11 grams of fiber per 1 cup serving.
I decided to head to the gym for a yoga class that went from 10:00-11:00 AM. So relaxing yet challenging. I also did about 30 minutes of walking on the treadmill and some strength training for my legs. I also hit up Target after the gym to get a new yoga mat and some new $5 tank tops 😀 After getting home and showering, I was super hungry.
My post-workout lunch (12:30 PM) was a massive 3 egg white and 1 whole egg omelette with swiss cheese, spinach and mushrooms. That’s about 25 grams of protein just from the eggs and about 8 more grams of protein from the cheese, exactly what my body needed. I was planning to put in red bell peppers also but ended up eating the pepper in it’s entirety while cooking the omelette. Whatevs. I also had a sandwich thin topped with avocado and an (unpictured) HUGE Red Delicious apple. Like seriously this thing was ginormous. Oh and I had a square of Lindt 90% Cacao chocolate as well 😉 I can’t resist it.
Before leaving for class, I needed to fuel up again. Did I mention my class is from 6-9 PM? Kind of shitty hours. My afternoon snack (4:30 PM) was a bowl full of oat bran mixed with lots of cinnamon, walnuts, and a tad of stevia. The fiber and the fact that the carbs in oat bran are slowly released into the bloodstream kept me full until I was able to eat again at around 9:30 PM.
Dinner was eaten late (about 9:30 PM). I had my usual big bowl of veggies with grains and either black beans or meatless meatballs. Today my grain of choice was bulgur and I mixed that with Trader Joe’s meatless meatballs. nomnomnom
