The Whole Day


Since my trip to Zumba last night required into a farther section of the city, I figured I might be near a Whole Foods once I got out.

I was right. 8 Minutes Away! Too close to resist.

I limited myself to 3 items (which I convinced myself I couldn’t get anywhere else): protein powder, daiya cheese, and a huge jar of crunchy organic peanut butter. All were very necessary: my protein powder just ran out, I’ve been wanting to try Daiya’s vegan cheese forever, and all of my roommates burn through crunchy peanut butter. I don’t know why they don’t sell the organic (or at least natural) crunchy peanut butter in big jars at our local supermarket, but I found it at Whole Foods! All is well now.

And there was great rejoicing! Vanilla green monsters are just as tasty 🙂

With spirulina, to boot! I’ve been meaning to get this alga (which is apparently the singular form of algae? Oho) into my life. It’s convenient to have it right in my protein powder!

Although it annoys me that there was such a gap from the top to the contents…

It that typical?

Spinach, 1/4 avocado, 1 small banana, 1 scoop vanilla protein powder, coconut milk, cinnamon

Usually I’m too late rushed to eat my breakfast at home, but I slept in today so I had some time! I tried to eat around 9 so I’d actually have an appetite for the Religion Department Lunch 3 hours later.

Do y’all have Jimmy Johns subs where you are? I’m not a sub person, but these are pretty good. I just wish they had more bread choices! I had 1/2 a veggie sub, which contains sprouts (the best part!), tomatoes, cucumbers, lettuce, & provolone cheese.

I was productive for a while this afternoon, then took a break for a quick treadmill run. I think my school’s “girl” gym is overheated; I get cold really easily, but as soon as I move in there I’m drenched in sweat immediately! I did a modified run since I had rugby practice tonight; it was about 40 minutes total.

5 minutes jog (warm up), 6.0 mph

4 minutes walk @ 7.5% incline, 4.0 mph

5 minutes jog @ 1.0% incline, 6.5 mph

Repeat those two 2x

5 minutes walk (cool down), 3.8 mph

I came home to refuel with some protein & carbs!

The very last of the plain greek yogurt, 1 chopped green apple, 2 small chunks peanut butter, cinnamon

I tried to do reading, but was distracted my the usual roommates’ nap interference plans and charming conversation.

I threatened to send these into a male modeling agency. They weren’t into it.Another roommate found the Daiya cheese and graciously decided to test it out!

“Melts and stretches? I’m intrigued.”

What’s the verdict, Lo?

“That works. I could so be a vegan.” 🙂

A few hours (and prunes! I’m so glad y’all like them too!!) later, I prepared to venture out into the single-digit temperatures for a quick rugby practice.

Despite the fact that the only form of lip balm I could find was “merlot lip shimmer,” I came to practice prepared!

For post-practice dinner, more of the spaghetti squash that never ends. I think there’s only one serving left, finally!

Spaghetti squash over spinach with chickpeas, red pepper, onion, and daiya vegan cheese

I see what all the fuss is about with this Daiya stuff! It’s not exactly the same as cheese, but it’s very similar in texture and the taste is phenomenal.

Tomorrow’s Friday! Are y’all excited or what? Any fun plans?

Question: Do you like green apples? I always find them too tart, but when you need an apple, you need an apple.
