I only have time for a short post, but I thought today should be WORKOUT WEDNESDAY. I had a really awesome workout today and just feel like sharing it! But first, I have to tell you guys something. I’m officially addicted to oatmeal.
First of all, my oatmeal tasted REALLY good yesterday. Idk why. It was the same oatmeal I eat every day. But it was DELICIOUS.
Second of all, when I got to the dining hall this morning.. There was no oatmeal. LE GASP. I asked them about it, and they said they had RUN OUT. What? WHAT?! You ran out of my delicious carbs? Rude. ROOD. So.. I walked across campus to the other dining hall.
I know this seems a little extreme, but my oatmeal is the way I get a great carb boost after my morning workout. Because I can’t eat gluten, a lot of options aren’t available for me, so I have to be a gluten-free carb-finding ninja in the dining halls. Without the carbs, I get cranky and fall asleep during my mineralogy class, which no one wants to deal with. Ergo, I trekked to the other dining hall, and got my delicious oaty carbs. Wahoo! I also had a treat of crunchy PB on my oats, because only that other dining hall (which I don’t usually go to in the morning) has crunchy PB. So, it was a double win. 🙂
So, what exactly was this workout that had me ravenously after carbs?
9 min mile warmup
2 miles HIIT (fastest pace at 8.0 mph, which is FLYING for me.. most of the time my fast interval was around 7.0-7.5 though)
20 min elliptical cooldown
side crunches (each side)
normal crunches with my legs IN DAH AYER (remember that song?)
25 box jumps
ALL OF DAH STRETCHING IN THE WOOOORLD
This workout left me tired and feeling greeeeat!
I will likely be sore tomorrow. Afterwards, I had my delicious oats, protein powder, and PB with my coffee and morning fruit. All while working on a paper! Which I must attend to now.. But first, my outfit for the day!
Do you ever have those days where you just wanna push yourself? Do you like being sore? Is there any food you can’t live without?
I had one of those days where I felt great and wanted to push myself. And tomorrow I’ll embrace the soreness and know I did something that is helping me get stronger and faster, instead of just wasting my time “getting in the miles”.
See ya friends!
