Today was an “endless pit” kind of day. I had peanut butter and banana oatmeal and a fruit roll-up for breakfast at 8:30am, and a burrito, pear, and apple for lunch at noon. …Then I had a rice crispy treat. …Then I had a protein bar. …Then I had another apple. …Then I had a handful of cherry tomatoes. …Then I had cantaloupe and strawberries…Then I had a bowl of ice cream. …Then it was finally 5:00pm, which I decided was an acceptable dinner time. Egg medley on toast with a side of carrots & hummus! …Then I had hot chocolate. I am not quite sure why my stomach was screaming all day, but stomach gets what stomach wants.
My workout plan this morning was a variation run + strength (a tiny bit of running paired with lunges, push ups, squats, etc) on the indoor track. After running 1 mile and completing my first strength set, I felt a sharp pain in the groin/inner leg muscle on the left side with lunges or running. NooOOooo. I cut out the lunges and running and stuck with push-ups, squats, tri-dips, and ab work for the rest of the hour. Thanks to my curse of too much motivation, I will probably take a[nother] short break from running or lunges.
I was a little bummed by the setback, but the 50 degree weather (!!!) cheered me right on up. I spent the day in class: Auditory Evoked Potentials (1 hour), Pediatric Aural Rehab (2 hours), and Medical Audiology (3 hours), with an hour of work in the audiology office squeezed in. When I got back to my apartment, I planted myself at the kitchen table with my chunky Hearing Aids book (and got up every ten minutes for a snack, as outlined above), which is where I plan on spending the rest of my evening. Awesome!
