I woke up 6.45 after 7 hours of good sleep. I had a good bowl of blue-oatmeal
- 1/4 cup dry steel cuts (pre-made)
- 1/4 cup almond breeze to hydrated it
- 2 tbsp egg white
- 1/2 cup frozen blueberries
- 1/3 cottage cheese
- 1/2 large very riped banana
I wasn't planning to go to the spinning class this morning, but as I got up early and was in a good mood...I thought why not bump up my good mood further with a good morning workout! So, I printed what I had to teach today and went to the 45min spinning class. The weather was so nice to walk outside today... I called my Mom to check if Daddy arrived safely, and they were having a feet massage! Grrrrrrrrrr.. I want that too!!! But I'm glad to know that they're having good time there.
The workout wasn't very intense but the music was really good! A think 90% of how I evaluate a good class is the music they put, because it really pumps you up!
Today I began the class asking my students about the election...... and a mini discussion was formed.. so fun to see them arguing about whether the situation of US will change or not with this new president. By fun I mean it's really interesting to see how different perspectives can be formed looking at the same thing even though their background are similar.
Back home I was starving....my hands began to shake, I can't be without food for more than 4 hours. So I had 1/4 toasted tortilla with laughing cow before I had lunch. Lunch was simple as well.....basically with everything left in the fridge (it's friday right? so cleaning up the fridge is a must!). Udon noodle with mustard green and fish cake.
A huge bowl......very satisfying. Dessert was a marroc (one of you will receive some of my selection of argentinian chocolate very soon) and mate!
I don't have any plan this afternoon. Since Dad left, I didn't do any research and I don't think friday afternoon is a good moment to start. So, let me postpone that until next monday! yupi~~~~~~~ no work until monday!!!
hope everyone is having a great day!!!
oh.... I talked about getting hungry after eating apples and some of you responded to have similar experience. I find one possible reason for that:
Apples are fruits and they contain acid juices. You can tell it but the sour taste, especially the Granny Smith variety. Our stomach contains acid juices too and on a higher level, to help in digesting the food that we consume. So, naturally, when acid is added to acid, it reacts faster, therefore we feel hungry sooner that expected.
it makes sense for me.
