Back to School, Back to School to Prove to Dad I’m Not a Fool
“Back to school. Back to school, to prove to Dad that I’m not a fool. I got my lunch packed up, my boots tied tight, I hope I don’t get in a fight. Ohhhh, back to school. Back to school. Back to school. Well, here goes nothing.”
Name that movie?! Yup, you betcha… Billy Madison! Just like Billy I was going back to school today! I eased back into the swing of classes today with just one class… physiology of activities. It is going to be an extremely interesting class, but it might be a struggle for me to remember back two and a half years to my classes where I learned about sarcomeres, muscle filaments, epimysium… I’m making my head hurt a little just thinking about them!
Unlike most mornings I was VERY EXCITED to get up this morning, because I was going to a group strength class at the university! This morning was the first time in three weeks that I have touched a weight… I’ve been deprived!! It felt absolutely amazing, in an uncomfortable sort of way! I am planning on doing group strength Tuesdays and Thursday at 7:30 am. If I happen to miss one of those I shouldn’t have an excuse not to get a lift in because there are a few other class options during the week. For pre-workout fuel I had a few bites of my breakfast, which was overnight yoats.
In the mix:
- 1/2 c oats
- 1 vanilla Yoplait Light yogurt
- 1 Tbsp sliced almonds
- 1 banana, sliced
Lunch consisted of left over mac & cheese with Tony’s creole seasoning, snap peas and an orange (which I didn’t eat…yet). For food event today I had some animal crackers (from our massive office supply) and a slice of banana bread.
The G.A.s (graduate assistants) and I were planning on going out for dinner at Buffalo Wild Wings (which I was super jacked about) because it was one of the GA’s birthday, but plans fell through. Plans did not get cancelled until 7pm, so I was starving when I heard. This being said, I was in no mood to take a lot of time making anything so I opted for a simple PB & J English muffin and frozen Yoplait yogurt for dessert. If you have never tried freezing your yogurt, you have to try it!
On another note, do you make your PB & J with peanut butter & jelly on both sides, or peanut butter on one side and jelly on the other? I’m a huge peanut butter fan so I like it on both!
No big plans for the night, but I will be watching the Colony… let me know what you think if you watch it! Hope you all have a great night!
