WIAW #4

Hello and happy hump day! Since I usually post what I eat on Tuesday, I decided to just include the other things that went on yesterday as well.

Breakfast: Fruit salad with granola and cottage cheese for some protein. COFFEE!

 Lunch: Hayuuuggeee salad with some honey mustard dressing. And a SUPER delicious spiced chicken burrito as well.

Dinner: Spaghetti with both meat sauce and pesto sauce with some caesar salad and a small piece of garlic bread.

IMG_2347I wasn’t feeling at all hungry, so dinner was a little on the small side for me.

Snackage: The lazy girl’s way of eating a banana and PB.

 After eating, I read some blogs and got inspired to go on a run. Let me tell you, running after a spaghetti dinner is probably the worst idea anyone has ever had in the existance of forever. I ran two miles before calling it quits and walking a quarter of a mile home.

I love UCSB!

I love UCSB!

 I felt pretty gross and sick, but the walk back helped me get back some bounce to my step and I joined some friends for Zumba! We even managed to persuade Hot Ryan to come dance with us. That boy sure knows how to get down and shake dat ass ;). He particularly excels at the sultry dance moves.

Sexy and he knows it!

Zumba was a ton of fun, but like usual, I looked like a total goof trying to keep up with the instructor. My sport since I was 5 years old has always been soccer (I was captain of a Club team for the last 6 years!) and I’m the most uncoordinated person ever when it comes to dancing. I kid you not when I say that Hot Ryan is a better dancer than I am ;).

After our workout, some of my main ladies and I tried out a homemade honey facial. I’m not sure if it actually worked any magic on my skin, but it tasted delicious!

The rest of the night is going to include a coffee/chocolate date with my love bug and studying a bit for my upcoming finals. DSC_0752

A Great Run & Cheap Find

Hey guys!

I hope you had a restful Sunday :).

I slept in till 9:30 this morning, which is the latest I’ve woken up since I can remember! Granted I slept pretty horribly (it was SO hot), but that’s still an accomplishment for me. I grabbed a quick breakfast of oatmeal, fruit, yogurt, and coffee and then plunged head first into work and studying.

*vomit*

After a while, I decided that I should probably stretch out a little since I’m still pretty sore from my workout on Friday. I youtubed a yoga video and it was great, I hadn’t realized what great resources you can find online!

I then put on some pump-up music to get me excited to go out for a run ;). I decided to not push myself to go as fast as I could and ended up running 3.5 miles at a semi-comfortable pace. I was pretty happy with my times seeing my “comfortable” pace is less than 20 seconds or so above my pushing pace!

IMG_2298 IMG_2299When I got back, I did this killer 5 minute ab workout from the Fitnessista! I love her blog and read it everyday :)

I read some blogs and then ate dinner. I wasn’t all too hungry so I just had some baked cod with lemon and a salad. Later on I nommed pretty hard on some cherrios and mini wheats though to make up for it!

IMG_2302

Dinner was followed by more work work work with some breaks in between where I snagged these awesome Zella crops on eBay for less than $30! They usually sell for WAY more and I’ve been dying to get a pair in gray, so I’m a happy girl. A confession: I’m absolutely and irrationally obsessed with cute workout clothes. My inner hound dog comes out when it comes to the hunt for affordable pieces!

The new Game of Thrones episode came out tonight, so you can bet your pretty face that Kyle and I watched it over a coffee/See’s candy date! It literally was the most shocking episode ever. I still can’t get over it and all throughout the night Kyle and I have been exclaiming, “I can’t believe ______ happened! WTF!”.

IMG_2294

After the episode Kyle helped me with some math and I studied a bit for a French test tomorrow.

It’s nice to be done for the day!

Mechanical Bulls and Apes, Oh My!

This weekend so far has been filled with lots of fun times with good friends!

On Friday night I went with some of my guy friends+Kyle to a party. It was very impromptu and I had expected to spend the night inside watching netflix! I rushed to get ready in 5 minutes and we were off. It was a TON of fun though, and I weirdly met up with a bunch of high school friends!

IMG_2253

My friend “Hot” Ryan who is insane and wakes up for 5 a.m killer crew practices every morning! He’s such a great guy and helpes me out in the weight room a lot :). More about Hot Ryan here.

IMG_2240

My friend Lexi from high school! We basically traded boyfriends when we were 16 years old. Awkward but funny story ;). We got asked if we were sisters about a million times that night. Do you see a resemblance?

It was a blast, but I sure did feel it on Saturday morning! I was absolutely exhausted. The night out AND the heavy weight lifting during Friday’s workout together made my bones feel tired. I listened to my body and didn’t do any exercise on Saturday, but still had it in me to hit up a small carnival with my friends!

Yeeehaww

Yeeehaww

That's my cowboy!

That’s my cowboy!

Mechanical bull riding is so so so hard. The key is to grip with your thighs- something that these big ol’ soccer legs are great for ;). My sombrero was huge and kept on falling down my face! Half of my ride involved me not being to see at all since my neck and head were in the hollow part of the hat.

IMG_2278 IMG_2285 IMG_2283After all the carnival fun, I knew it was time to get some work done on my study/work calendar. I spent the rest of the day (from 2-10 p.m) working and then finished the night off by watching the original Planet of the Apes with Kyle. I LOVE that movie. The special effects aren’t what they are today since it was made in 1968, but the storyline is so fantastically interesting that I didn’t mind watching it again!

Movie snack!

By the time I went to bed at 12:45, I was too tired to move. I plan to spend my Sunday getting some rest and maybe hitting up the gym or going for a run depending on how hot it gets!

Did you do anything fun this weekend? What’s one of your favorite movies?
