Pretty good-I splurged in Texas (so much candy, ice cream and yummy food!) and that’s okay but I feel good. Before that, I ate as well as I could. I am a bit bloated but I know a few days of good food and I will be back to normal.
I don’t have any food right now in my fridge so I need to come up with a few creative meals in the meantime. I will make pasta for Thursday and Friday night (gotta carb load!) and will also throw together something in the crock pot with veggies, bacon fat and some meat. I will add some rice to it for good measure-gotta carb load!
I have a few yogurts with added sugar (my secret weapon in carbloading) but I need a few more so I will grab those this week along with some orange juice (my other secret weapon). I also need bananas-I want to average 2 bananas a day from Thursday-Saturday to help ward off cramps.
LAST WEEK: This is the first week I have averaged over 7 hours a sleep since I started school. There were a few days when I woke up feeling so refreshed. Thursday mornings are still rough after working all-day and going to class but I am hoping it will get a bit easier. While in Texas, I slept great however I did get woken up early from the little siblings but that’s okay!
As it is a race week, I need to get as much sleep as possible. I am going to aim to be in bed at least 8 hours before I need to get up to help with sleep. I will also be leaving work a little bit early to get to Expo and have time to walk around and buy a few things (I want to try and find some good running glasses!) and still make it home in good time. On Saturday, I am tutoring from 9-12 and then going to a party at Devin’s before relaxing before race day. My goal is to get up at 530/6 so I will be tired on Saturday night to go to bed. The early rise will give me time to clean my apartment and get some homework done so I can have a bit of a relaxing weekend.

I got great news from my high school best friend-she is pregnant! I cried when she called to tell me-our high school group is growing!!
Texas was EVERYTHING I needed! pics below!
Got all my work done so I could relax including getting ahead on readings. Since my professor keeps cutting readings the week of (after I have already read them), I am going to keep reading all of the articles but waiting until the week to review and write up my notes so I won’t waste too much time
Office furniture done!! Now to get it anchored to the wall and I will post pics next week J
Setting up my office for real this time!
Race day-finally here for LA Rock n Roll. I am not going to reveal my costume until right before so people can say hi if they recognize me.
My boyfriend’s sister from London is coming to visit! She has been in school and I have never met her since we started dating 3 years ago. How crazy? I am very excited to meet her!
So for you, how was your week???
