I finally have a full day of eats awaiting for your food-porn viewing pleasure.
Yesterday I was able to do my 2nd lift! I woke up and had some pre-lift fuel:
I think I’ve found my perfect pre-workout fuel. This is keeps me full through my workout and I love it! Before I lifted, it was a beautiful morning, so I took a walk for like 40 minutes while listening to Bruce Springsteen- I’m broadening my musical horizons from T-pain and Lil Wayne
THEN onto my lift! This included:
DB Snatch 3x5ea
BB Bench Press 5×10
BB Split Squat 3x10ea
Wide Grip Lat Pulldown 3×10
Single Leg Hammy Buck 3xea
DB Bicep Curls (alt) 3x10ea
Calf Raises 3×10
Then I came back home and did some massive, much needed stretching for about 10 minutes- I was still sore from Monday’s much more intense lift- My legs were dead! Luckily, I was able to RE-FUEL with some delicious PUMPKIN-OATMEAL PROTEIN PANCAKES. Yup, I’m still eating pancakes for breakfast. Every day. No big deal.
Topped with Maranatha & 0%Fage>>>>
After this, I put my bathing suit on and attempted to even out the awful SUNBURN I had gotten the day before. Basically, the front of me looked like a Lobster and the back of me looked like Tilapia (sorry, it was the first WHITE thing related to the sea that I could think of…terrible analogy.) Excuse it. However, I could only sit out for about a 1/2 hour because it was so freakin’ hot outside!
I came inside, showered and did some work of my ONLINE CLASS. It’s called the “Comedy of Mannerisms”. It’s an English elective that discusses the humor of etiquette and poor manners in our society- Basically, I got to watch an episode of Seinfeld online, then attempted to read Jane Austen’s Sense and Sensibility. Unfortunately, however, I got hungry so I decided to satisfy my tummy. Sorry Jane, food comes first ;).
I re-created one of my favorite lunches that I’ve had at a Greek restaurant at school- It’s called “Horiatiki”. Have you heard of it? It’s basically Cucumbers, Tomatoes, Red Onion, Kalamata Olives, and Feta with Olive Oil and Vinegar. I made this sans olives…not an olive fan.
Still Hungry (Story of my life)…I got a bottle of the POM Wonderful I got in the mail last week, and combined it with ice and blended it all together. It created an amazinggg texture, and lightened up the sweetness of the juice, so it was the perfect amount of sugary-ness. The slush-factor was also a great addition to the super-hot day:
I really enjoyed this. But still wanting more (again, story of my life), I enjoyed my never-fail, always satisfying, favorite snack of all time:
A nice, big scoop of Almond Butter straight from the jar… can you really ask for anything more?
After this, I was done-zo with snack time and needed to straighten my hair and get myself to look semi-decent for dinner with friends. Unfortunately, I was put in a bit of a time crunch when it took me 1/2 hour to find my straightener. It was in my drawer next to my bed… where I always straighten my hair. DUH. Don’t you hate when you look for something for so long, but the whole time it’s right under your nose?!
Anywho- In the midst of getting ready I snacked on the following:
Then I met my friends Erin and Catie for some sushi. This place was pretty cool because we sat right next to the guy making the sushi so we could watch! Clearly, I had to take a CREEPER PICTURE (no flash, of course):
The Menu of the different rolls was pretty long so I had an extremely difficult time figuring out what I wanted:
I was in between the “OUT OF CONTROL” and “SAY NO”… I chose the former. Partially because I liked the name, and partially because I liked what was in it ;). It had Tuna, Salmon, and Avocado with Tobiko>>>
Catie got the “Philadelphia Roll” which is salmon with cream cheese, and Erin got the standard California. While waiting for the bill, we snapped some pix…clearly:
& I did what I do best and played with my food:
Oh, and then we went to eat ice cream- Yeahh, I like food.
They also had a red-velvet frozen yogurt which I was tempted to get, but didn’t. The Raspberry and Chocolate still made me a happy camper, though!
Now today, I am off to do the following:
- Go to the Library and do some homework (& I thought it was summer…fail.)
- Dye and Cut my Hair! (I’m going BLONDER- just a lil, and getting the split ends chopped off)- Pics to follow!!
- Blog it upp & Check out what you guys are up to
Have you ever dyed your hair? If so, what sparked the original interest? I started in Middle School when I got blonde highlights, and my hair’s been hating me ever since! But now that I’ve started- I can’t stop!!
What’s your favorite roll to get when you eat sushi?? I Need some suggestions for next time!
&My favorite question: Are you a sprinkle Person? I certainly am- I love the crunch it gives my ice cream, but a lot of my friends are very against sprinkles because they think they are “pointless”… no way. But to each his own!
Have a great day, bloggies!
