I have exactly two and a half weeks until I take my LSAT.. I just got an e-mail from LSAC about it and I realized how completely unprepared I am right now. I have a lot of room to improve and know I can do so much better than I am currently, but I haven’t been able to focus on studying. Time to buckle down and get working!
And I am now $100 poorer after signing up for my first half marathon. I’m working out some tweaks in my training plan, but I’m planning on posting my general plan soon. Probably after this weekend because I am going to beautiful sunny California where I can run on the beach everyday and hopefully see some old friends
I probably won’t post my food all the time because I’m a creature of habit and tend to eat the same things every day. But here goes for today..
This morning I mixed it up a little from my usual Kashi and had a Thomas Whole Wheat English Muffin with peanut butter and a little bit of honey drizzled on top.
On the side I had a nectarine which wasn’t all that great, too ripe in parts and not ripe enough in others :\ Oh well, I love fruit.
Since I’m leaving for California on Thursday, there really wasn’t any need to get a whole bunch of groceries. So instead of starving (because we all know I couldn’t find anything else in the fridge ) I went to Sak’s Art of Sandwicherie for lunch!
My sandwich included turkey, sprouts, dill pickles, spinach and avocado on whole wheat bread. I had the other half of my chicken ceasar salad from yesterday, a handful of carrots and a snack size peanut butter snickers. Delicious.
I skipped my planned 3 mile run this morning to sleep in because I’ve been feeling extra tired lately and I know I needed to give my body a break. LSAT class is cancelled tonight so I get to go to Master’s swimming. It has been almost 2 months since I’ve been so it’s going to be a rough workout, but I am ecstatic I can finally go again! I love my master’s swimming friends and we always have so much fun together, especially when we go to the bar in my gym (yes, my gym as a bar, I don’t ask questions) to get drinks and cheese crisps after
Last night I went to yoga but we had a different yoga instructor who was just too slow for me. I have a hard enough time in the more athletic ashtanga yoga my gym offers, so to move even slower was nearly impossible. The class is an hour and 15 minutes and I made myself stay an hour, but I knew I had a huge To Do list to do so I snuck out as the class was winding down. I always feel terrible leaving classes early, but the instructors are usually extremely understanding, and I let him know before class started.
I found this article earlier about increased appetite and consumption when training. I think a lot of people (including myself) feel like they have an excuse to eat everything in sight because of they just ran 15 miles and burned 1,500 calories. I am a huge advocate for balancing healthy food with not-so-healthy food every once and while but the worst thing you can do is deny yourself the foods you love because it only makes you crave it more. It’s all about moderation
Have you ever left a fitness class early?
What’s your favorite “guilty” snack?
Mine definitely has to be ice cream, home made cookies, or both together
What are your favourite veggies?
Carrots. I could eat carrots all day everyday and I definitely prefer them raw.
Hope you’re having a great day!
