Phew…made it through the first round of classes. Two more tomorrow night and two more after that on Thursday. Sixteen hours of sitting on my butt (not counting So. Cal. drive time) squashed into three tiny nights. Does all that sitting really change one’s hips and bottom? At any rate, my bum, knees and head are sore from the sitting and looking under bad lights.
All this from a girl who is so thankful and happy to be back on the other side of the classroom!! I love every bit of pursuing a higher education, really!!
Anyhow, DAY ONE of the pack-and-go eating schedule went swimmingly. I didn’t get to finish everything that I brought, but don’t feel hungry. I managed turkey flesh today, and I think that that helped. I have a hard time not falling back into my vegetarian ways…it’s just easier (and more fun) to prepare veg. friendly foods…but I know that the animal protein has really made a difference in my energy levels and strength.
Got back in the pool after six weeks off and had a great workout…actually, my buddies kicked my butt up and down the lanes…but it’s a good kind of “kicked around,” my body was so happy to be back in the water! And my emotions were happy to see my swim friends again…I highly recommend working out with a group of wonderful, supportive people…it just makes the whole experience joyous!!
Here’s my thought for the evening: It is worth the time and energy to prepare the food ahead of time for a pack-and-go kind of schedule because it’s healthy and much cheaper than eating on the road. And all those little tupperwares are so cute!!
