Things are especially cheery around my apartment today because it is the first Monday in over 12 weeks that I did not have to go to work! (except for Spring Break and Snowpocolypse of course!) If you stalked me on Twitter last night, you may have seen my workout intentions for the day. I said I was getting up at 7AM to run 5 miles. If you know me, you can assume what happened next. I rolled over, hit snooze, and finally got out of bed at 10:30. Guess my body is more in vacation mode than my mind! :)But it's all good because I still had my workout mojo despite the hiccup and gross weather. Speaking of, that put a significant damper on my 5 mile plans so much so that I ended up doing a weight/cardio interval session in the gym in my building. It was one of the best workouts I have done in a while!I fueled beforehand with 1 piece of almond butter banana toast and a small orange. And coffee of course! Upon returning to an empty apartment (*bLiSs*) I took a quick shower and then hung out in my towel (because I can!!) while icing my knees, snacking, and writing a to-do list. Serious multitasking y'all.I have been making a serious dent in this list throughout the day...look at all that is already crossed off! :) I just wish my paper would have magically written itself already. Yea, that is not happening, so I am clearly putting it off until last.
I am pretty sure I use my frozen vegetables solely for icing at this point. I have to make sure there are always two bags in the freezer, so I am on a frozen vegetable eating freeze until my last night here! Pun intended.My post-work out snack today was composed of:
- 1/2 cup of Fage greek yogurt
- 1/2 spoonful whey protein powder
- 1/2 apple
- 1 power muffin
- roasted garlic chickpeas
- black beans
- green peppers
- 1 laughing cow wedge
- 3 tablespoons light Balsamic vinaigrette
I left with a sour impression (obviously) because they all just reiterated the same advice my director has been force feeding us all semester (which I happen to not agree with.) Ok. Vent over.
I just have to get through this week. OY VEY he has me aggravated! I have to go bust out another paper now...
Question: Does anyone else out there have a piece of career advice that absolutely changed your life? If so, what was it?
