I took a brief walk outside and the chilly air gave me the second wind I needed to get to the gym and break a sweat! I just did some light resistance cardio – 30 minutes Stairmaster and 15 minutes stationary bike. It actually helped me release a lot of the anxiety and tension that had built up surrounding my test. I have to say though, the evening workouts are not a favorite of mine. I used to always go to the gym around 9:00 at night freshman and sophomore year and I hated it. But I also couldn’t wake up early like I can now. I think my circadian rhythm has somehow moved so that I’m much more of a morning person – a ‘lark’ instead of an ‘owl’ if you will – oh no, somebody slap me because this is just too much psych! Though I’m not complaining about being up with the sunrise
After my workout I had a lovely nightcap of fresh blackberries.
Aw, so pretty. Then I mauled the presentation by mixing in some Cool Whip.
I’d say I’m pretty much addicted to that stuff. I buy two at the grocery store every week 😳 I really need to stop because I finally took my head out of the clouds and looked at the ingredient list:
Ingredients: WATER, CORN SYRUP, HYDROGENATED VEGETABLE OIL* (COCONUT AND PALM KERNEL OILS), HIGH FRUCTOSE CORN SYRUP, LESS THAN 2% OF SODIUM CASEINATE (FROM MILK), NATURAL AND ARTIFICIAL FLAVOR, MODIFIED FOOD STARCH, XANTHAN AND GUAR GUMS, POLYSORBATE 60, POLYSORBATE 65, SORBITAN MONOSTEARATE, SODIUM HYDROXIDE, BETA CAROTENE (COLOR). *ADDS A NEGLIGIBLE AMOUNT OF FAT.
I really love the whipped topping though, so if you have ANY suggestions (vegan? non-vegan?), please send them my way!
