Hope you all had a wonderful Tuesday. My day was busy! Had my last 8am class ever! It was horrible, I have always hated early morning classes, and this one was especially painful. We were presenting our essay topics and I went last! Gah! I was the 10th person of 10 people to present, and having to sit through everyone's just waiting for my term had my nerves off the charts. But, presentation went well, got some decent feedback, and calmed my nerves a little bit to actually start tackling this paper. But I did pack a delicious breakfast because I ran out of the house. It consisted of a nice serving of vanilla yogurt with bran cereal mixed in....yum!
-I need to tell myself this or I will become a bigger stress ball than I already am.
So, after class I came home to catch a quick nap, then did a little grocery shopping. I bought soy milk, chocolate chips, butter, and some juice. On my way to the grocery store I snacked on a Kashi bar, because I know how it can turn out when I go there hungry.
But, even though I wasn't starving I still bought a junky dinner, I had chicken fingers (2) and some fries. My stomach was hating me later, I haven't eaten greasy food like that in a while. But it was darn tasty.
After groceries I came home, put everything away, ate some dinner, digested in front of Friends and Family Guy. I then headed out to ball hockey. Oh how I love ball hockey, running around, sweating, hitting, shooting. It all just makes me feel so happy! We lost 2-0, but it's okay, we improved from the last time we played the same team (they are in first place) and we are still currently in second place!
Now that I am home from hockey, I just did a yoga for beginners lower body DVD, in hopes my legs won't be wrecked tomorrow. I have been a bit of a slacker this month in the gym department, between picking up extra shifts and finishing my final year I haven't been motivated, but tomorrow I am going to spin class right after my final class of university! yikes!
Anyways, now that I have finished a lovely orange, I am going to catch up on the e-mails, facebook goodness, and then shower and then bake some cookies (for soci party tomorrow in class) and read some more research!
