Mornings Are Always Brighter
Hey friends Happy Hump Day to each and everyone of you!
The first full day living on my own went smoothly, very smoothly; however, that cannot be said about last night. Unfortunately, last night i got completely overwhelmed with everything I had to do in order to be ready for my classes today. I was so worked up and stressing about absolutely everything. It seems as though, I have an easier time overwhelming myself in the evening. Can anyone else relate to this?
Thanks to my wonderful parents, I was able to look at things in a more positive light and became less frazzled over all of my “to-do’s” I must say, a new friend of mine also helped me very much throughout this time. A special thanks goes out to her
Even though I was extremely worked up last night about getting to school on time, packing three meals for throughout the day and all of my binders and textbooks I had a wonderful morning I wonder if things always look brighter in the morning because of we get to indulge in the best meal of the day?
– almond milk
– chocolate protein powder
Yup, she was a tasty bowl of oats
Despite the hours I spent freaking out about having to deal with crazy traffic in the morning on my way to school and worrying about if I would be able to make it to my 8:30 AM class on time, I arrived at school at 7:35 AM. Such a typical Meg event, just so you all know. Oh well, lesson learnt. I do not need to leave an hour before my class begins Simple as that My early arrival gave me time to hit up the library though! So I was productive during this time
Since it is only the first week of classes, some classes aren’t running for their full time because they are more of an “introduction” to the class. My 8:30 AM class ended at 9:30 AM today. It is scheduled to end at 11:30! Luckily I am a morning person I wasn’t complaining! The long break between this class and my next class allowed me to roam around campus, buy the textbooks I still needed, and go to the gym.
My workout ended over the lunch hour, so I decided I wouldn’t go with my usual post-workout (protein powder and banana shake) because I thought I would want something more “lunchy” This decision had me develop a new and amazing post workout meal ideal for lunch!
– tuna mixed with dried cranberries and Greek yogurt
– 1 slice Ezekiel bread
(sorry for the lame pictures. I had to use my phone.)
I spread the mixture on the bread and devoured Oh it was a good combo. I highly recommend it
My day was definitely a productive one! I found a library close to my afternoon class where I will be doing my studying on Wednesday after I finish at the gym. I also had a meeting with my student council portfolio holder about my upcoming event – Homecoming! I am in charge of the float that we enter into the parade I am really excited because we discussed our ideas in detail today and really got the ball rolling Homecoming is the first of October, so it is going to sneak up on us very soon!
I am busy doing random student council stuff, filling out my agenda, food prep for tomorrow, and packing my oh so heavy back pack. I am much more confident in how the day will unfold tomorrow which makes my night much more smiley tonight
I haven’t talked to my parents on the phone today and I usually have a chat with them daily, so that is my plan now!
Have a wonderful night lovelies!
What is your go-to post workout meal? Do you like having whole foods or a protein shake?
For those of you living away from home, how often do you talk with your parents? I am constantly texting my Mom all day It is like she is getting a play by play of my every move I actually just finished telling her I have a blister on my foot. She knows everything whether she wants to or not
