I had a request from a reader to do one of these style of posts and figured I would bring my A-game and take all zee pictures so that I could do just that for you. Lets take a peek into my typical Tuesday. This happens to also be my super early day because I need to get my lil tushie to the gym at 7:30Am Weeoo. Here we go.
Thanks Jen for the link up 🙂
Jump out of bed and throw my pre-made, naked zoats into the microwave for 6 minutes while I run back upstairs.
5:38AM: Add chopped nanner, nuke again for 2 minutes
5:40AM: Add pink salt, vitamin C powder and flavaaa
Nuke again…Yeah Yeah I’m gunna die.
5:42ish AM: Add all zee toppings. Sprinkle of peanut flour, 3g of chopped up walnuts, 1/2 a tablespoon of this lovely nut butta…
…and a watered down tsp of Walden Farms Chemical Sauce. Yes, I went there. I can only have a touch (ie a tsp that has been watered down so it’s like I get more syyyrrrup) though or else my tummy gets mad that I’m eating crap. And yes, Walden Farms is crap. But the syrup is tasty crap I will admit.
Lil Miss Fitness Freak Confessions. See I’m not perfect. Sometimes I want maple syrup but I ain’t about that sugar soooo I sink to using chemicals.
6AM: Finally ready to eat my pre-workout zoats with a side of Chopped Canada
Hey at least I’m not in New York…
Sorry for your luck down there!
7:30AM: Enter the gym. Game time I have a class a 10AM.
This is what I tell myself every Tuesday.
Today’s workout was Chesticles. Lets take a looky at what I did…
Forgot to put on there that sets 2 and 3 were all 4 total sets and set 4 was 3 sets (my burnout for the workout).
Oh hey PR! 85lb bench yo! I always find that because I’m feeling rushed on Tuesday’s that I’m super focused so despite it being my super early day, I always end up having an amazing workout.
Moment of Distraction: News shows that ferret eats half a little girls face….Well ain’t that nice.
9:25AM: Still going strong…must finish last burnout set
9:38AM: Must finish last set. Damn it someone took my rack for HLR.
Flail my arms around Stretch for a minute so I could say that I did it. Run to the change room to get my sh** together so I can bolt it back to campus.
9:50AM: Leave gym…Yeah I have 10 mins to get to my class (about a mile)
10:01AM: Ass in chair. Challenge won.
10:15AM: Realizing how much my butt hurts from yesterdays leg day (1st of the week, glute/ham focus) as I attempt to cross my legs…
10:30AM: Sitting-in-a-chair fatigue starts to kick in. So I decide to multitask. Listen, take notes and begin to type this post up to keep my eyes open.
10:45AM: What no mid-class break? Apparently they don’t realize that I drank an entire bottle of water during my workout and I need to pee every 20 minutes.
11:20AM: Still have to pee..but more..
11:22AM: The bathroom here has two stalls and it’s lined up out the door…Ugh.
Question of the morning: Can I make it home?
11:25AM: Stop into another building to pee then continue walking home.
11:30AM: Get home and prep my lunch because I’m hungry already…
Veggies are all prepped to be roasted in the toaster oven. Rice is on and Emily comes in so I chatter with her for a few while I get these things going.
12PM: …shake my head that my veggies have been done for like 10 mins now, I’m ravishing and I’m sill not eating…Oh distractions. Wash face, shower, and get changed. <-aka put on PJ’s because who puts on clothes when they are in their house for a few hours? Not this girl, but you knew that already from my vlogs I’m sure. 😉
12:30PM: I’m finally eating. Ugh I have issues.
Staple meal when I don’t have a meal directly right after my workout (ie proats). Yes, I eat out of that container because it keeps my food as hot as possible for the longest. 😀
Have any of you seen Eye Candy on MTV? Yes it sounds stupid but it’s actually pretty good. Don’t let the name scare you away. A lot of dying though lol.
1:30ishPM: Make pudding (for nightly snack) while catching up on some fitness/health YouTube vids.
I want to say that I was productive before my 4pm class but I was so freakin tired guys so I took a power nap before said class…
3:25PM: Take my vitamin D drops and fish oils, eat about an ounce of leftover roasted chicken because I’m randomly starving again. Yeah, I didn’t eat that much but I figured I would test whether I was dehydrated so I had a lil bite then I was gunna get a Tim’s.
3:35PM: Left for class earlier to pick up my tea from Timmies and took the green bin and recycle with me to get that out of our house.
3:40PM: Tims in hand (which my gloves clearly do not want to hold. Hotpaws don’t hold things apparently). It’s actually not too bad out right now despite being cold…
4:55PM: In lecture and read this article [link] that a friend of mine posted on facebook (she was actually the sports nutritionist I saw).
4-5:20PM: Managing Resources lecture + working on this post + working on an assignment for this class. For said assignment I did the Big Five personality test online. If you’re interested, here were my results.
5:15PM: Walking back home.
5:25PM: Walk into the house to find Emily sleeping on the couch. Daaaaawwww.
5:30PM: Finish making my workout summary on PicMonkey
Moment of Worry: So I found that cool background randomly online and I’m hoping I don’t get attacked for using it on my site…cuz I couldn’t find a reference for it…
5:40PM: Hunger starting to ping in again (what is with this non-stop hanger today?! Delayed needs from leg day yesterday?) so I consider slowly making my way back downstairs to start making dinner. Swordfish on the menu tonight. 😀
….Gets distracted by another assignment…
6PM: Downstairs to start cooking. Emily has woken up so I’m chattering with her as I cook.
6:50PM: Macbook is now back on (I’m still using my old one, which does random things sometimes #OldieProblems, as I’m waiting on software for my new one), Pretty Little Liars is on and I’m nommin away. The growling had stopped by now, which is probably not a good thing.
7:10ishPM: Round 2. Baked swordfish and all it’s oily beauty + all the roasty squash. We have delicata, acorn and buttercup there roasted with some olive oil and dried rosemary. Yeah, I don’t do sweet roasted squash. Savory FTW!
7:30PM: Done dinnah, prepping my morning preworkout (soaking my oats and chia seeds) while watching the last leg of PLL and making my Dad a little something something for making his way up real quick tomorrow to drop off my casein. Such a nice Dad I have. 🙂
8:10PM: In go my Dad’s muffin/cupcake thingys..
8:45PM: Finish that chapter and start quiz
9:05PM: Done quiz and I got pwwweeerrfect. 😀 Preservation master apparently.
9:15PM: Add more to this post.
9:30PM: Read some journals for my Couples and Relationships course assignment.
9:40ishPM: Go put pudding in the freezer + heat up tea that I steeped while cooking muffins earlier and head back upstairs to get back to worky.
Emily catches me as I head back upstairs and makes me smile as she beams about how good her first boxing lesson made her feel. Strong and powerful.
10:15PM: Starting to wind down before getting my snack and to beddies.
10:40PM: Snack time with blog reading time and I will attempt to make it into bed before midnight.
Overall, I didn’t get as much work done as I had wanted to as I kept getting distracted with other things and plus I took that nap but I told myself that was okay and I would just power through it over the next few days. Midterms are slowly creeping up and assignment deadlines are starting to show themselves on the horizon so the beginning of the semester grace period is coming to a close rapidly.
Hope you had a great humpday friends!
What time to you wake up?
What time do you prefer to workout?
Are you easily distracted?
