Finals Lockdown

2012-12-07 13.00.24

This is where I have spent almost my whole day.  With two finals Monday and one Tuesday and a take home final due Wednesday, this is probably where I will spend the next few days.  Thank god for pandora’s christmas stations to keep me in good spirits!

All the sitting around prompted to me have a healthy lunch.  I love egg sandwiches (good protein and carbs) and usually I do it simple: eggs, salt, pepper, 2% american on wheat toast.  Today though I decided to cook up some spinach and tomatoes to add to the mix.

I mixed the eggs, spices, some feta cheese right into that pan and threw it on some bread with a slice of cheese on top.  I added some carrots and hummus to round out the meal.

After being well satiated I was able to get a few more hours of work done and then took Scarlett to the park again.  She did great today.  There was only one other dog there today and she was much more willing to play when she wasn’t so outnumbered.

When we got home, I headed to yoga which was a much needed activity today.  After so many hours of studying my mind needed the hour of rest.  I feel so stretched out and refreshed and ready to tackle this 20 miler tomorrow.

I was pretty hungry when I got home, so I whipped up another smoothie.

If I end up using spinach in my dinner too I may just turn in to Popeye.

Good luck to all those with long runs tomorrow!!

Being Proactive

Casey has been battling some type of respiratory infection/illness for about a month now and it is only getting worse.  The longer he has it the more I feel like I am doomed so I am trying my best to be proactive, especially with what I have been eating.  I have been making a ridiculously large effort to get in TONS of fruits and veggies.

So for lunch I had…

salad

Today was a easy run/lift day but I just couldn’t bring myself to go to the gym because it was 75 degrees out.  It is December 3rd and I ran in shorts and a tank top.  So much for the awesome compression cold weather tights Casey got me for my birthday!  Instead of going to the gym I did a short circuit at home, OUTSIDE, to hit the major muscles.

Work out

Post run I made myself a huge smoothie with tons of fruits and veggies…I am not going to get sick if I have anything to say about it!

Just settling in now with the pup (officially named Scarlett) to watch football and hopefully lock up another fantasy football win!

Happy Monday!
