workholic me!!!

I'm feeling even better today since I decided to ignore her as too (well, just ignore the fact that she's ignoring me. I know that if she happens to contact me, I'll be run into her right away. ) and focus on what I should focus on right now, my own research. I did a lot of work today, about 8 hours? excluding eating and breaks. Some important progress have been done, so I'm satisfy with my work today.
Fortunately I'm sleeping well too, 8 hours a day is really important to keep me productive and in good mood. And I'm glad that I changed my biological clock from going to sleep around 11pm to 10pm, so I can get up around 6 and begin to work at 7am. I know that most of you are morning person and get up around 5 or 6, but this is not common among people I know here. Most of my friends or people I know go to sleep around 12pm or later, so I'm the weird girl who behaves like old lady. Before finding you guys, I wondered sometimes if I'm really weird, but now I'm 100% that we're the healthy group, we have nothing to shame of, we're the role model for the rest of young people. Don't you think? (well...maybe I'm over exaggerating..... it's just that I'm needing high self steam lately)

okay. Back to eats
Breakfast: back to my favorite oatmeal.
  • 1/3 cup old wessex
  • 1/3 cup almond breeze vanilla
  • 1/2 banana
  • 1/2 apple
  • pinch of salt
  • vanilla
  • 1 tbsp flax meal
  • 1/4 cup ricotta cheese
  • 1/2 cup fresh blueberries
Needless to say that it was so yummy~~~~~~~~~Morning snack: powdered soy milk + trail mixLunch: penne with veggie&salmon sauce plus two Tj's turkey ball. For the sauce I mix some tomato sauce, shredded carrots, frozen collard greens, frozen green beans and half can of salmon. And tons of fresh parsley! (love fresh herbs! I'm seriously considering grown my own herbs.)Very satisfying and nutritious lunch!
Dessert: ricotta cheese + pumpkin + cinnamon.By 5.30pm I was totally stupid, so I went to the gym to regain energy. Pre-workout snack was muffin with laughing cow and hummus. Plus argentinian two hearts chocolate.I jogged for 30 min on the treadmill (6 m/h) and 25 min elliptical machine while I read Self. My stat:
Duration: 55 min
Average Heart Rate: 149
Maximum: 202
Calories burned: 377
Dinner: Sauteed romaine lettuce with garlic, salt, sugar and canola oil. Also made a warm salad of cauliflower, mushroom and chickpeas, seasoned with 1/2 package of Goya and pepper. I had them with 1 cup of rice. oh.....I had some baby carrots with hummus as appetizer too.
It was a huge plate of food....I was really stuffed when I finished. But I always have room for dessert. My favorite fage with frozen strawberries.And now, while I'm blogging, I had another argentinian chocolate called Bon o Bon, a classic!
I think most of you are having great time with your family! (I'm so jealous!)
I wish everyone Happy Thanksgiving! I'm looking forward to read your post with delicious eats!!

Great work out at the gym! I have a HRM on my Christmas wish list! I'm so jealous of everybody's stat's when I have no clue what mine are! :)

I <3 Old Wessex but I ran out and I can't get it in Canada. :( Hopefully I'll make it back to Buffalo some time soon!

I'm going to try to be as productive as you today, workwise.

Today's task is to clear my work desk and cabinet so that I can have a fresh start next year.

Yummy eats as usual. I wish I could cook as well as you. :P
