So Monday started out with getting up early to do the insanity workout. Today it was Max Interval Circuit. Oh. My. Goodness. It was 55 minutes of Hell. I thought I was in shape, I was wrong. This 55 minute workout kicked my butt. I walked around all day very sore.
Breakfast was a toasted fiber-full English Muffin with strawberry fiber jam. Grits and eggs (spinach and cheese) and a banana. It was super delicious, and very filling.
After breakfast I went to babysit. I think the time change affected the baby, because she would take short cat naps but then be wide awake. It was a long morning, but I really do enjoy babysitting so much!
Lunch was a pb&j sandwich and cheetohs and grapes. It was good. After babysitting I went to class, where our teacher told us he was going to let us out early because he was under the weather. Well after 45 minutes he gave us a break, then proceeded to continue on with the lesson. We got out a full five minutes early. What a tease. :(
After class I had to babysit again around dinner time, and I planned on taking Leo on a long walk but it was cold and raining so we just took a quick stroll around our neighborhood. Before babysitting, I ran to the farmers market to pick up a bar of the Equal Exchange dark chocolate bar for my friend who loves dark chocolate, but prefers 90% and they only had 71%, though they told me they were ordering more of the 80% but had sold out. I think she'll enjoy it, even though its a little less strong then she wanted. I was never a fan of dark chocolate, but its slowly growing on me, though I don't know if I will every enjoy the 90% variety. :) Whatever works!!
This chocolate is amazing though! I love it, and would encourage you to buy it whenever possible! I love that its all about fair trade and organic!
After babysitting for a few hours I ran home and heated up some pasta I had frozen. It was delicious. I definitely prefer reheating home cooked meals, rather then having frozen dinners where I don't know all of the ingredients. HOWEVER, I still don't mind occasionally having them, in fact, I have plans to eat one tomorrow for lunch.
I also plan on cooking my first NON vegetarian meal in a month tomorrow. Well, cooking might be a stretch. I plan on sticking a pork roast and veggies in the crockpot so it'll be ready when I made it home that night!
Either way, it'll be delicious. I've made a plan to eat 80% of the time vegetarian and 20% of the time I'll eat carnivorously. When I eat meat, I also hope to try and always eat grass-fed beef and hormone free, free range chicken and pork. However, before I can do that, I need to clean out my freezer's stock pile of meat, which since it is just me, is not very much but over the next couple months I plan on eating it then replacing it with the better more organic ingredients.
Also, tomorrow is election day, no matter what go out and vote! I don't get one of those handy dandy stickers because I voted absentee but I encourage you to vote! Show your voice!
