Today is my official "off" day from my full time job; unfortunately, I did not meet a deadline yesterday, so I will be working today. The only thing that sucks more than working is working for free (I’m hourly). Sigh!
I woke up to a lovely Cashew Pancake breakfast, which made things a little bit more cheerful:
I made the pancakes using Hodgson’s Mills InstaBake mix + 2 tablespoons of crushed cashews. Pecans are better, but the cashews gave it a nice chew!
Plus, "diploma maple syrup" (can you see my University of Pittsburgh diploma in the reflection?)
And two plums:
I was determined to get in a good workout this AM and was planning to do a back-to-back elliptical and swim session to help me train for the Metric Century and Triathlon. I started on the elliptical (while multi-tasking and reading for work).
- Duration: 30 minutes
- Distance: 2.5 miles (on elliptical)
Afterwards, I headed over to the pool only to discover that the AquaFit class was in session! Arg! So, I’ll be heading back to the pool tonight to get in my laps. I really do NOT like two-a-days.
I ran a bunch of errands. After coming home, I refueled with a Green Monster:
It was the usual blend (1 banana, 1 cup unsweet almond milk, 1 tablespoon flax, and 2 cups kale). Delicious.
Off to work I go!
What college did you go to? Represent your college pride! If you didn’t go to college, what’s your favorite college sports team? I’ll start – UNIVERSITY OF PITTSBURGH!
