April 1, 2010

This last week or so, since getting back from New York has been hectic.  I HAVE in fact been working out, I just have not taken the time to sit down and blog about it.

The weather here has been stunningly beautiful, hitting the mid 70’s in the afternoon.  However, it gets WINDY as HELL (hell in my mind is extremely windy) in the afternoon as well.  It’s like Albuquerque is laughing at us.

Sunny.  WINDY.  Calm.  WINDY.  Warm.  WINDY.  Flowers blooming.  WINDY.  Flowers blown off trees.  WINDYWONDYWONDDY. (yeah.  wondy.)

Can you tell already this is going to be a good post?

Anyway, let me tell you about my week and how it is interfering with my life:

Yesterday: Nonverbal paper due.

Today: Lab practical worth HALF of my grade.  24 different bacterial culture tests with only 45 seconds each to do them.

Tomorrow: O Chem test.

Monday: Nonverbal test (her tests are a BITCH.)

Tuesday: Intercultural test.

Catch mah drift?


I’m ignoring all the days I skipped blogging about.  There was a run here, a workout there, nothing overly exciting by any means.


I was lazy.  So i got on the elliptical (yes, the dreaded killing contraption of a machine) for 40 minutes.  Woo.  Watched miley cyrus on the ellen degeneres show.  Woo.

Then I did some abs, nothing all that exciting either.

Most importantly, I went to whole foods afterwards and made myself the most delicious salad.  It had every color in it possible because lately the carlisle whole foods has really upped the game on their salad bar.

It had: mixed greens, carrots, red beets, golden beets, cauliflower, tomatoes, mushrooms, emerald kale, cranberries, blue cheese, chickpeas, quinoa, lemon, olive oil, and balsamic.  Basically a little bit of everything that looked nice and wonderful.

I am making myself like beets one day at a time.

Mostly because they are such a gorgeous color.

Not to mention they are chock full of good nutrients.

Mmmmm… tastes like… earth?

All day detox.  Didn’t get a workout in because I was exhausted and lazy.

But I ate light and healthy all day… steel cut oats with blackberries and blueberries for breakfast.  Pb&j with carrots for lunch.  Lastly, a bowl of roasted veggies (ratatouille) with whole wheat bread for dinner.  And lots of water and green tea.  I really do feel better now.

Bed, then a morning workout!

Day 8… Last day of school survival.

March 12, 2010


RUN: 29 minutes on treadmill.  Up one more haha. It was rough though, every part of me was exhausted.

Ate healthy all day, ran, then afterward rewarded myself by sitting on Dan’s couch drinking wine and eating dark chocolate, and of course, playing pictionary.  Antioxidants right?! Plus I’m pretty sure I just read that red wine makes you skinny. And is good for your heart.  And I’m positive it is good for your soul.  World’s best superfood.

If I had to pick things in this world to survive on, it would definitely include red wine, dark chocolate, and chips and salsa.  Healthy.  But the more I think about it, I am happy to say that I would go crazy without every kind of fruits and veggies.  Seriously.  Put any vegetable in the oven with a little bit of olive oil and salt and pepper, and after a little bit of time to get caramelized and toasty, it instantly becomes my favorite food.   Let’s not even mention my innate love of crusty, delicious, warm bread………

Attacking Monday with a VENGEANCE. (day 6)

March 9, 2010

RUN: 27 minutes… HA. One whole minute more. Wooowee! On a treadmill though, because outside was blustery and cold.

Ran on the ONLY free treadmill in the gym… stuck between two extremely overweight middle aged people meandering slowly.  Ick.

ABS: Did a little ab work, but the mat area was swarmed with racket ball playing old men.  Beautiful.

Ate healthy all day (except for the cupcake, oops? but it was small, and tirimisu flavored, and delicious.)

So I am going to start putting together the best workout songs, and Hoot and Shannon… give me input! I need lots of them.  Oh and Robby took his ipod back haha so I really want to get an old generation shuffle, but that probs won’t be for awhile.

Sundays are Slow days. (Day 5)

March 7, 2010

Breakfast: Nature’s path organic heritage flakes cereal with a sliced banana and almond milk. COFFEE.

Lunch: Smooooothie with banana and yogurt and frozen blue berries and blackberries and cinnamon. Yum.

(pretzels) (pretzels) (pretzels)

Worked for sally today lifting boxes and walking up and down stairs for four hours.  Workout? Yes.

Day 4

March 6, 2010

Yesterday we shall not talk about.

Today has a good vibe.  Brunch with Robby at The Grove, we both had the yogurt with fruit and granola and 2 wonderful cups of coffee.

Ran 26 minutes at Nature Center, felt really damn good to be doing something.  Short run overall but I want to start back nice and slow so I don’t burn out.

Sandhill Cranes

I love the Sandhill Cranes at the beginning of the run, they are gorgeous.

Hmmm I think lunch today will be whole grain toast with hummus and some veggies.

These are the days I want to be having! xx.

Day 2 (Day 1 redo)

March 4, 2010

Day 1 slowly melted into fitness failure.  I locked myself out out of the house.  Sat outside for 45 minutes then sat with my dad at Satellite for an hour and a half.  By that point, all hopes of getting a workout in had shriveled up and died.  I had to shower, get dressed, and find a great b-day gift for Dan (booze and gummy bears, classy.)  The wine that seemed appropriate… Plungerhead Zin (with a 98 rating it can’t be terrible, right?)

A classy zin.

Back to it… last night came down to a dinner of over consumption.  But well worth it.  And the night ended with Dan, Loren, and I singing Bohemian Rhapsody at the top of our lungs in the most depressing karaoke bar ever. It was ridiculous.

Today, I HAVE to get back AT IT!

Day 1… and so it begins.

March 3, 2010

So as of late, I have had a lot of trouble falling asleep at a reasonable time every night.  Consequently, getting my butt out of bed to get to the gym or run or whatever, is A LOT harder.  My schedule is perfect to get in a morning workout, so I  need to make this happen more regularly.

Breakfast: Cold veggie pizza (ouch) and lots of coffee.  Not a great way to start.  At least it wasn’t ‘meat lovers’? (gross.)
