Eating Machine!!!

…….OH BOY! What hit me this weekend?

I was one busy bee this weekend, eating away- I don’t even have pics b/c it all went into my food wayyy too fast! Mindless weekend eating is something else! Between my mom’s homemade meals and birthday desserts I sure did enjoy myself 🙂

Except for the part where I ate MOLDY guacamole for two days!!! BLAH! For being so paranoid about expired food I can’t believe I missed the GIANT white/blue patch of mold 😦 Thankfully I feel fine- you live and learn.

But like every fun weekend there is always a mindful eating week to follow!

I woke up this morning with a slightly scratchy throat and nasal congestion, this is NORMAL for me with the change of the seasons coming up here is Maryland. So, I am not worried about swine flu 😦 I have been CHUGGING green tea in hopes of feeling better ASAP!

It’s hard to get out of school and work while being sick, but as long as I am not running a temperature I am ok, even if I do feel crappy all day.

So far so good with bringing food from home! My main problem was not being able to keep it cool all day while I was in class or at work. But I have been using ice packs and its good to go!

The eats:

  • Grapes
  • strawberries
  • Pasta w/ low fat caesar salad dressing
  • Salmon burger!!! (12.99 for 12 at costco)

The HIGHLIGHT of my weekend was a trip to COSTCO!!! OMG the weekend is an amazing time to go, soooo many free samples 🙂

I am only at the 1/2 way point in my day, I still have to teach my abs class. I teach twice a week for 25 minutes a day. It is great to still teach even with an injury 🙂Picture 014

I have a basic set ab routine, but I am always trying to add new moves. My biggest problem with doing crunches is the neck strain- so I try to do  a lot of moves that don’t hurt that area. Planks, seated twists ect. Personally I like doing my ab workout on the BIG ball, however there are not enough for the 40+ people that come to class.

Does anyone else feel pain while doing a basic crunch?

I also have trouble planning for the rest of the day eating wise.

I ate my lunch at 12:30.

Currently its 2:52, I have 4.5 hours left to my day. I would like to have some kind of a snack with me, I forgot my soy chips 😦 I am skipping yogurt while being sick, cold dairy is not the best when you are congested.

I may buy a vegan cookie to take with me while I am in class or a Nature Valley Honey and Oats Bar :)- Love those things, even if the tend to crumble all over me. I HAVE to have something to eat during my 2 hour biochem lecture. I can’t focus if my tummy is going * grumble grumble*!

Its’s funny, sometimes in life there is nothing that is going too wrong, or nothing super exciting- it is nice to be at an even pace in life. Its like the calm before the storm and you know that something is coming. My semester is off to a start, I know what I need to do to study and do well in my classes- it honestly is a matter of it all coming together.
