Happy Monday everybody!
My weekend was very relaxing in some respects, but not in others. Whaaaaat does that even mean? Well, let me fill you in on what consumed about 95% of my day(s):
I started this show on a whim on Friday night, after having had a discussion with a friend at dinner about intense, dramatic, TV thrillers. Before clicking “play” on Netflix, I had absolutely no idea what Prison Break was about (except for the fact that someone was going to try and escape from jail, obviously), but after the first episode I was hooked.
After a few episodes I became very intrigued by Wentworth Miller‘s character, Michael Scofield, and searched him on the web only to find that he is a Princeton alum! What do ya know?! So of course I had to keep watching in order to support my fellow Princetonian :).
To say I “supported” him, is a bit of an understatement, as I have basically been eating, breathing, and living Prison Break for the past 3 days. Let’s put it this way: they are hour long episodes, I started on Friday night, and I’m currently on the 22nd episode of the first season (which is also the season finale). Yep, sitting in class right now and being unable to watch that last episode is absolutely killing me.
After a swim with Nana this morning, I made myself a little pre-breakfast of homemade 10-second protein balls before getting ready for the day. They featured the following ingredients, plus water and peanut butter to hold it all together:
The main portion of my meal consisted of an egg white scramble with mushrooms, onions and spinach, as well as half a grapefruit.
I also grabbed an Americano with a shot of pumpkin spice to give myself a little extra boost while doing some homework.
Ever since my doctors appointment regarding my knee issue last week, I’ve been taking it easier on the workout front. Because I’ve been
banished discouraged from my usual activities of squash, running, and biking, I’ve resorted to mainly yoga and swimming for the past few days.
Here’s a little look at what my workouts have looked like for the past week:
- 15 ish minute bike
- 20 minutes of squash
- Vinyasa yoga
- Solo hit
- 35 minute swim (AM)
- Solo hit (PM)
- Upper body lift (PM)
I also taught my spin class on Wednesday evening, but took it easy and “faked” it since I wasn’t allowed to bike.
- Vinyasa Yoga (AM)
- Squash: 1 hour (PM). I felt pretty good on Thursday, so I asked my coach if I could play for an hour and she agreed! I was fine playing for that length of time, but it’s a good thing I didn’t play for much longer. I could feel that I was getting more tired than normal, most likely because my movement wasn’t as efficient as it usually is.
- 40 minute swim (AM)
- 30 minute solo hit (PM)
- Upper body lifting + core
- 45 minute swim + core
- 8 am Vinyasa yoga class
- 30 minute swim (AM)
- PM: TBD.I’ve got another appointment with the trainer today, so I’m hoping that she will say there’s been some improvement. It doesn’t hurt, but I’m not entirely convinced that the swelling has improved significantly.
Well, that’s it for today! I just received an email saying that I have a package to pick up and I am super excited, because 1) it’s food related, and 2) who doesn’t love getting packages?!
Have a great start to your week!
