Thursday I woke up with sore knees. Not good. I have had knee problems off and on for quite a while now, so I am quick to nip it in the bud. But first, I had my breakfast.
Speaking of calories, can we just talk about this TWINKIE DIET for a sec? This is craziness. If you haven’t heard about it already, check out Biff’s blog: Twinkie Diet. Basically, a professor did this to prove that calorie counting is more effective than other forms of dieting for losing weight. True that, but nutritionally speaking, that guy was killing himself. For the love of God, please don’t try it at home. I get the heebie jeebies just thinking about it.
Back to business. After my mediocre breakfast, I headed straight for the ice pack. My little running buddy/baby, Gizmo, was also feeling the strain of exercise.
20 minutes of icing along with elevation did the trick. Soreness gone.
It was a rest day in every sense of the word. No internship, no school, no exercise. It was lazy city up in this hizz-ouse. And it wasn’t just me.
Getting ready always makes me feel less lazy, so that’s what I did. I even changed my profile pic. Check it (said in a gangsta voice). Lunch rolled around quicker than expected and I was feeling like having some sort of deli-like meal.
After wasting more time playing with my dogs, and otherwise piddling around, I made the journey to College-ville. Somehow, I managed to get there in what felt like no time at all (it took the same amount of time as usual). I am fairly certain that Led Zeppelin has magical make-time-go-faster powers. I had a protein bar before I left, but once I arrived at La Casa de Biff, I was starving. Why did I let myself get to this point? Then the inevitable happened. I ate whatever was no-cook and within reach.
I finished the day off with some Chocolate Caramel Chai awesomeness while watching my Biff study for the GRE. What fun.
I have hope that the morning will be pain-free. I also hope to have tastier oatmeal in my future.
