Thursday Thoughts

I feel like being random today.

1. I’ll also be MIA this weekend.  I’m going to a leadership conference in DC! While I’m excited for it because I’m sure it’ll be fun it stinks because a. I hate wearing dress clothes b. It’s the weekend before school starts

2. Yeah.. my semester starts Monday. I’m actually semi-excited but I know I will take that back once I have a thing called homework. Oh and tests.

3. I had an amazing veggie omelet last night. I inhaled it to put it modestly.

4. My roommate and I found we have a passion for Special K products.
special k
Maybe they can give us discounts?!?

5. Kcups while expensive are so convenient. And come in cool flavors.

6. Fitness classes start at my school gym Monday.  First class I have planned? BODYPUMP! I can’t wait. I missed that class! Also on the list is PiYO and a Running Interval class.

I will definitely update you on my leadership filled weekend! & the start of the semester!
Ahh so busy but I love it.

Favorite special K product?

    Yesterday my workout consisted of a quick 3 mile run outside.  It was cold and was going to get dark in less than an hour so I wanted to make sure I got home before then.  Well, I pushed myself through the wind and cold and ended up having an 8:20 pace! I haven’t gone that fast in a normal run in awhile so I was quite proud of myself.  I then whipped up dinner a la dorm style: a hamburger with no bun, mustard on the side, a salad with cucumber, carrots, tomatoes, chickpeas and light italian dressing, a small granny smith apple and one of the last of my reindeer peeps (so sad!).  After dinner I did Winsor pilates butt and thighs workout.  Wow.. you really feel the burn with those exercises! Then I ended with some planks.

    The rest of the night was devoted to online class work, cleaning, relaxing and reading.  I’m going to miss the free time at night when the semester starts! Eek. I’m ready for classes but at the same time not.

    What’s on your bucket list?
    If you’re in college what are some of your dorm room eats?
