We made it! It’s Friday!!! And guess what? This is Squash on Squash’s 100th post! I think I’ll have to treat myself to a little something in honour of this little milestone 🙂 Maybe something squash related??
I’m especially stoked for this weekend, because I”m off to Philadelphia to play in a doubles tournament! Woooo! Friends, squash, and Philadelphia, here I come!
This morning started off with a Wawa coffee that a teammate of mine, Gabriella, dropped off right to my room. Yup, that’s right, and I didn’t even request it! I’m livin’ quite the good life I think.
The food portion of my meal consisted of toast with 2 poached eggs, as well as oatmeal and a couple spoonfuls of peanut butter.
Alright, with breakfast out of the way, let’s move on to Friday Favourites! Thanks to Heather, for hosting as always!
Well, it’s official. I am full-on addicted to Prison Break.
Remember a few days ago when I posted about having watched an entire season in a weekend? Ooookay well I am now halfway through the second season, and currently showing zero signs of slowing down. I’m actually starting to get quite concerned, for a few reasons:
- I have averaged roughly 5 hours of Prison Break a day for the past 6 days
- My “bed time” has been extended by about 2 hours thanks to my extra TV watching
- I am rushing through my homework as fast as possible so that I can watch the next episode
- It’s literally all I could think about during my swim yesterday
- I downloaded Netflix on my phone today so that I could watch while walking around campus (is that the most anti-social thing you’ve heard of or what?!)
- I’m starting to wonder if I’m going to fail my midterms if I don’t finish this show in the next two weeks
Are you now as concerned as I am? I’m hoping that this weekend away from the computer will help me break my addiction (at least a little bit).
My strange knee injury has limited me to mostly low-impact activities for the past two weeks or so, which means I’ve been either biking, yoga-ing, and/or swimming every day.
And to make it even better, I’ve had a partner to swim with! One of my teammates, Kira, currently has a severely sprained ankle, so she has also been banished from most other activities. The two of us have been
slogging it out ripping it up in the pool, and also finishing up each session with a little core work.
Half Baked Cookies
Not much to say here, except, YUM.
The only thing better than having cookies as an appetizer? Having warm, melted cookies as an appetizer :D. Next step? FInd the cookie dough stash!
Student Health Advisory Board Poster
I couldn’t help but laugh and take a picture as I stumbled upon this poster while filling up my water bottle the other day at the gym.
Apparently showering is an issue on campus?
I’m usually so sweaty after exercising that I have to shower afterwards. If I don’t have to, that usually means my workout wasn’t hard enough!
Jay Robb’s Chocolate Protein Powder
I initially picked up a couple of sample packets of this protein powder this summer at the Vitamin Shoppe and was extremely pleased with it!
I was a little skeptical at first because it has Jay Robb’s photo on the front, which kind of put me off. However, the combo of the nutrition facts and the taste really blew this one out of the water for me. I’ll write a little review on it soon (with a recipe!), but thought I’d give ya a little preview now 🙂
Graze Snack Box
I received my first Graze box on Monday, and really liked it!
I don’t think I”ll go for the Strawberry shortcake or Salted fudge peanut cookie things again, simply because they didn’t really do much for my stomach besides taste good (by that I mean, they weren’t filling), so I think I’ll stick to nuts, popcorn, and flapjacks. In terms of value, I’d probably say that Nature Box wins here, so I might ask for a Nature Box subscription instead for Christmas or something :).
That’s it for today! I don’t think I’ll be blogging this weekend, but I’ll make sure to take pictures for a recap on Monday. Have a great weekend!
Do you have any fun plans this weekend?!
What’s one thing you’ve been loving this week?
