Skip to Week 4

Posted Nov 08 2012 9:38pm

Today was an early morning. I had an exam that I had been cramming for all night and I got very little sleep last night. I needed to fuel my brain properly, so I made some apples and cinnamon oatmeal with vanilla protein powder mixed in to keep me satisfied.

I got in another last-minute cram session as I ate breakfast. Fortunately, the test actually went really well! I think I nailed it!

Morning Snack

After my exam, I celebrated with one of my homemade whole wheat baked cinnamon sugar pretzels that went wonky overnight. They turned out really soggy despite letting them sit out in the open air until they were entirely cooled. I ate this one, but ended up throwing out the rest because they seemed to be getting worse as the day went on. It was so strange, but I'm sure the pretzels will be amazing the next time!


Shortly after my morning snack, I bought lunch to make up for a very crab-smelling lunch I had packed for myself. Apparently the crab I had brought turned my lunchbag into a seafood marinating machine and everything down to my apple tasted like crab. Ugh!

I ended up picking up a small potato soup and a cranberry blueberry bran muffin from Tim Horton's on campus.


After a lot of snacking after lunch then spending my evening with my respite family, I kept my dinner simple. I made a chocolate peanut butter smoothie using a whole frozen banana, half a scoop of chocolate protein powder, a spoonful of peanut butter, half a cup of unsweetened almond milk, half a cup of water, and a handful of ice.


After dinner, I made sure to get in a good workout to get my heartrate up. I skipped right to Week 4 of Jillian Michael's Ripped in 30 and I ended up loving this workout! It was so much better than weeks 1 and 2. It was much more of my level and I think I'll be doing week 4 quite frequently over the next little while!

Have a lovely night!
