Today was one of those days when no matter how many layers you have on, you FREEZE. Not to mention it snowed off and on all day long…and there’s a *big snow storm* brewing for the end of the week, supposedly. We shall see! I like snow, but I don’t like being stuck inside…especially since Saturdays are now designated as Hot Yoga days, and Sundays are my long run day. Sigh.
After a lonnnnng day of classes (that never seemed to end) and being so cold all day, I started to feel just how sore I am from BodyPump last night! Wow that was an extreme workout, I guess since I rarely do free weights…and I think I might have lifted a little too much weight for the first class! I found out that there are BodyPump classes at the gym I just joined off-campus, so I hope to do a class or two a week in between my other workouts. Anyways, I was SO sore, especially my arms and shoulders, so I decided I would take it easy tonight to let my body recover. I did 35 minutes of intervals on the elliptical…enough to feel like I got a workout, but nothing too intense.
I had a package of Tofu in the fridge that I hadn’t cooked yet, and I couldn’t decide what to make. I thought about Tofu Chili, but I had Tomato Bisque soup for lunch and wasn’t feeling more tomatoes for dinner! So I marinated the tofu in a balsamic & olive oil vinaigrette with some spices while I went to the gym…I let it marinate for close to 2 hours. I didn’t have time to bake it, so I sauteed it on the stove and made a side of steamed veggies to go with it. It was really good actually…I wasn’t sure if it would have flavor but I guess those two hours of marinating made a difference! Its nice to change it up every now and then…I am not a vegetarian, but I think I lean more toward a veggie diet than a meat-eater’s diet. I like to get protein from other sources and not rely so much on meat. Ha, I mean CHICKEN. I don’t eat red meat anyways…or pork, really. The only meat I actually eat is chicken, and I eat fish (Mahi-Mahi, Salmon, Tuna) from time to time. But I don’t know if I want to actually classify myself as a vegetarian any time soon…I do like grilled chicken every now and then!
Last night my boyfriend and I were talking about my upcoming graduation and he brought up our future…engagement. We talk about it quite often actually, but he still has another year of school (I’m graduating a year early), and then he plans to go for a year to get his Master’s in Accounting so he’ll be an official CPA :) Soooo that means I don’t necessarily get a ring anytime soon, but it may be sooner than I think… Anyways I found myself looking on TheKnot.com again…I have done that numerous times before too…I guess I can dream, for now ;)
Well since I’ve successfully killed time not doing schoolwork tonight, I guess I’ll read a little then get some sleep!
