Today was one of those days where my VERY FIRST meeting of the day ran 20 minutes over, thus making me late for the next meeting – which also ran over. And so on for the entire day! I HATE being late & it’s one of my biggest pet peeves when people are late for meetings with me (part of hating when people think their time is more valuable than mine) so it drives me crazy when I’m the one who is late.
Despite that unfortunate circumstance, I actually had a pretty great day! One of those days where I really felt like I connected to my students & that they really “got” what I was talking about (I’m a dork, I know!). I also got a lot of quality work done on my own, which is always invigorating! And I got to celebrate a friend’s thesis defense! Then I came home and needed to make something quick and easy to feed myself & the boys. I grabbed some of the pasta I had in the freezer from Trader Joes.
I had baked chicken a couple days ago, so I grabbed that out of the fridge, chopped it up and threw some pieces in the bowl with the pasta. My bowl of mostly ravioli with just a couple tortellini pieces thrown in. The boys had the opposite. I also used just a touch of marinara sauce (not much was needed) and a little fresh shredded parmesan cheese. Unfortunately, the pesto pasta was not very great (such a bummer because I LOVE pesto), but the Ravioli made up for it!
I forgot to take a picture before I started eating, but you get the idea.
On P90X – I’m on day 3 and it has been rough! Not that the DVDs have been rough (don’t get me wrong – they are challenging), but it’s been rough finding the time! I’m making it work though. One of the 60 minute DVDs I split into two separate 30 minute chunks to fit my schedule, and I’m scheduled to do a 90 minute yoga video tomorrow, but I went ahead and got the first 30 minutes out of the way tonight because I know I won’t have a full 90 minutes to devote to it tomorrow.
In terms of my thoughts on P90X – I’ll give a full review after my first 30 days, but so far I feel pretty good. As long as I keep making it a priority to find the time for the workouts, I think I’ll be okay.
Now I’m off to jump in the shower & work on some homework for a class tomorrow morning. Gotta love it
