Unintended Exercise

Apparently, I don’t do well on just 6 1/2 hours of sleep anymore.  I woke up this morning at about 6:00, out the door with a to-go container of oatmeal in hand by 6:20.  At about 6:35, almost to class, I realized something… Class starts at 7:45 am.  Not 6:45 am.

Way to go, Me.  I would have stayed on campus, but I didn’t have any homework with me.  So I ended up turning around and coming home, adding an extra 35 minute walk to my day.

The worst part?  I’m pretty sure I did the same thing once with my Microbiology course last semester.  Seriously.  Rolling out of bed to go to class is apparently not a good choice for me.

On the bright side, I did get to eat my breakfast at home, and my muscles were warmed up from my walk for me to get some good knee stretches in…

Before I cover breakfast, here are my eats from last night:

IMG_2880Leftover veggies, pasta, and beans, reheated in the SWE office microwave.

IMG_2882Tortilla chips and various dips at SWE Meeting #1 (the plate looks full but it is also very small…)

IMG_2883Most amazing puppy chow EVER at SWE Meeting #2.  I don’t know how Kristine did this differently than I usually do, but it was so much better!

IMG_2887Granola, berries and skim milk (again).  Plus a little more granola because I was still hungry.

Note to self:  Do not go to SWE meetings hungry!

For some reason, if I crave carbs at night, I wake up with a headache the next morning, regardless of whether or not I give in to those cravings, like I did last night.  Why??

I also jumped on my new trainer for my bike (yay!) and did a quick 6 miles to warm up my muscles:

6.00 miles

22:27 minutes

And did some basic stretching for my legs in an attempt to ease the stiffness in my knee.

This morning’s breakfast had time to get nice and melty on my 35 minute walk.  It was delicious with a nice crunch:

My oats were topped with:

  • 1 T. PB
  • 4 PB pretzels  from Whole Foods’s bulk bins
  • Dash of chocolate chips (10-15, I would guess?)

Sooooo good.  I particularly liked the crunch from the pretzels.

Okay, off to class, this time for real…
