|Lunch to go.|
Last night (after staying up way too late to finish my homework assignment - why does Monday night TV have to be so good?!) I made my lunch to take to school today. I topped a whole wheat tortilla with hummus, homemade pesto (leftover from a pizza I made), cucumbers, onions, spinach, mushrooms, and black beans. I really liked the hummus and pesto combo, and the black beans reminded me of a Chipotle burrito!
|All wrapped up - pretty hefty!|
After school, I hit up the gym (and tried out my new shoes - so far so good, although I did a double take when I walked by the mirror in the locker room; they're definitely eye-catching!). I did a workout plan created by The Fitnessista. This is the fourth and final week of her Winter Shape Up plan. So far I've done the workouts 3 times a week for the first, second, and third weeks, and today was my first day doing the fourth workout. It was a tough one, but it felt good to work hard. Keeping a regular workout schedule has really helped me balance the stress of school, both physically and mentally.
|Cheeseball. Gina (aka The Fitnessista) asked participants in the Winter Shape Up to send her a picture of us doing our favorite move last week. I actually do love squats, but the squat/ jump squat/ burpee sequence was killer!|
I'm going to work on my next writing assignment while watching The Biggest Loser. Usually I love the show, but this season is really not good. The logical thing would be to stop watching... but the season's halfway over and I feel committed. Plus, Dolvett is nice to look at.
Song of the Day:
Earlier today I thought of including a "Song of the Day" at the end of my posts. I'm a huge music-lover, so I figured this would be a fun way to share what I'm listening to. If it gets old, though, I can reduce it to a "Song of the Week" or something - let me know what you think.
Today's Song of the Day is "Needing/ Getting" by OK Go. Not only is OK Go one of my all-time favorite bands (I've seen them 11 times, I think, in 4 different states and a District) but this is quite possibly my favorite song from their most recent album, Of the Blue Colour of the Sky. They just released the music video for "Needing/ Getting"on Sunday because it was featured in a Super Bowl commercial for Chevy, who sponsored this music video. Hope you like it!
