I think posting about slipping on my eating habits and exercising helped me a bit through today :o) and I am thankful for the wonderful feedback, it surely made my day/night.
- Too dry
- A little bit under-cooked
- So over-cooked! (only because it gives me ease that it's not under-cooked)
- It's so over cooked that one time I cut the roof of my mouth (tsk tsk!)
+ Basically rarely is my chicken ever perfect! so one day I finally got fed up and bought myself a thermo and that helped for a bit, but sometimes I'd notice little increments of pink and suddenly I lose my appetite.
+ BUT! with the George Foreman grill, it was quick and effortless...minus the cleaning. I actually didn't go to my Economics class because the thought of leaving my Foreman Grill at home unclean urks me. I chose to grill at the wrong time, which was before class to grill.
+ Lesson Learned: PLAN and make many to last at least half a week :o)
I finally went to the gym today, because I haven't gone in almost a week! I got into it pretty fast.
Elliptical: 1 hour and 5 minute cool down & Core: 45 minutes
It felt so great. While I was on the elliptical, it occured to me that stress was simply keeping me away from going to the gym. Because I figured that the thought of going to the gym with the countless of assignments due would make my experiences less enjoyable.
BUT it was the opposite. I left the gym with a feeling of euphoria, and with that mood, I felt happier to start on all of my papers. Amazingly enough I did!
+ What's even great is that after the gym I had my lunch from my cooler. I was bummed out that there wasn't any conventional microwave near by. So I ate it cold, and suprisingly it was good! I owe it all to The George for still keeping my chicken moist.
Lunch: Grilled chicken breast, Asparagus, Black bean mixed with (diced tomatoes, green chiles, cucumbers, squeeze of lemon, and Mrs. Dash original blend) and brown rice.
Before class and after, I got a Grande Nonfat Cafe Latte with a Caramel Brulee syrup. (they didn't have sugar free) it was tasty!
On the tangent: It was totally random that in my Anthropology class yesterday, were discussing hemorroids. In Japan they believe that the traditional toliets that we use or sitting on our bottoms too long on a hard surface can cause it. So therefore, a good soultion to fix this is if we use holes as our dumping ground. It was interesting.
So here I am at Barnes and Noble, sitting on a bench as I type this. The hard surface isn't that comfortable so obviously my bum would hurt from sitting on it. But thinking about that lecture on hemorroids freaked me out! (TMI?) yeah I think so.
It feels so warm and nice to hear Christmas music playing at stores.
I hope you all are Swell, keep warm!
