I know I say this at the end of every month… but seriously, WHERE has January gone? Wasn’t it just Halloween? I actually wrote September 31, 2007 on a paper today. Three problems- it’s January, there are only 30 days in September… and it is definitely 2011.
Maybe it was a lack of sleep? I was up at 5 to get my workout out of the way this morning. I don’t work or have a night class on Mondays, so I could wait until after school to do it… but I’m so glad I just got it over with! After 60 minutes on the elliptical (didn’t want to get too sweaty!) I called it quits and got ready for class.
I knew I would have an early morning, so last night, I made my breakfast in advance.
I mixed quinoa, ricotta cheese, maple syrup, and dried cherries in some Tupperware for easy transportation. This was surprisingly delicious!
I also packed lunch, because I was on campus until 3. I brought a sandwich thin filled with leftover roasted eggplant and the spinach hummus I made last week, with a little fresh spinach in there as well. For not having any cheese or tomato sauce, it tasted like pizza! Not complaining. Yum!
I also brought cherries and grapes. I bought red grapes because they were cheaper, and while I don’t like them as much as green, they were good. They actually taste like grape flavored things- or should I say grape flavored things taste like these?
I had a nice surprise waiting for me when I got home!
Well, it wasn’t waiting for me… but I scoured my garage and found the can of pumpkin I was missing! I know I could buy some more (and I plan on it) but the fact that I knew I had a can lurking somewhere was bothering me!
I had my new favorite snack- a chocolate Vitatop, Greek yogurt, and pumpkin.
Followed by an old favorite- apple with peanut flour butter.
I also had some strawberries. So juicy, so delicious!
Dinner was squash with feta and maple syrup. Easy, lazy dinner 🙂
Since it’s the the last day of
September January, I thought I would check in with the goals I made a month ago and see how I’m doing.
Make health my priority. I give myself a B on this one. I haven’t binge eaten in exactly a month (YAY!) but I’ve been really bad about drinking water. As in, drinking one cup some days, even on exercise days. Not good! But, I’ve majorly cut back on junk and have definitely been eating better than I was over the holidays.
Make an exercise plan. Also a B. I’ve been neglecting strength training. I got in a session on Sunday, but I haven’t been doing it nearly as often as I should. Also, I haven’t done speedwork for a while. I’m planning on doing it tomorrow. Just putting it out there so I’ll actually do it 🙂
PR in a race. Not applicable because I haven’t raced yet! I do have a 5k coming up next month, but I don’t think I’ll PR, and I’m okay with that.
Work on my organization skills. I’ll give myself an A on this one 🙂 I did two things I’ve always procrastinated on- organizing my drawers and filing my important papers. I’ve also been working on organizing my things for school the night before- laying out clothes, making meals the night before, etc. I almost feel like an adult! Key word being almost.
Do one thing that scares me. Well, it’s only been a month since I’ve made that goal- there’s still time to go sky diving 🙂
Continue blogging. I think I’ve blogged almost every day of January, so I think I deserve a good grade 🙂
I’m going to make a few goals for February that deserve their own post tomorrow.
How are your New Year’s goals (if you made any) coming along?
