Early Morn UCLA and creative fish

Thursday night dinner was unbelievable. We dethawed black cod (for two, it was about $6) so $3 a person. Made one sweet potato into fries ($0.69), some kale chips and brussel sprouts (probably $1). In total the meal was less than $5 per person. And it was incredible.

Next morning I made myself get up before work hit the track for some stars and go to the gym. Fridays are really important workout days because they set the tone for the rest of the weekend!!! And if I’m at work from 8 to 6 I gotta get it in early.

My university is so beautiful. It was such a great morning workout. I killed the track in about 24 minutes (15 flights) and had a 8 minute mile run warmup there. Me and Sara got off work early and sprinted to the 530 sculpt class at core power. We challenged each other to only use 5 pounders (as opposed to 3 pounders, in a hot yoga class, tricep dips with crescent pose lunges is very difficult) and we had so much fun doing it.
Scratch happy hour – sculpt instead. Best decision.
Dinner was well deserved – fresh tilapia.

Running on empty

Last night I got less than 6 hours of sleep which is usually a huge problem for me. After class this morning I was feeling totally off so figured I might as well go to the gym and run it off.
I ran the perimeter which is a 4 mile loop around campus. One direction is notoriously hard with two major uphill efforts (at least 5 minutes each). I decided to just go for it. I was feeling awesome at first but halfway through ran put of steam. Figures for no sleep.
I tried to finish out strong and when I got back to the gym I did an arms circuit with free weights and some assisted pull-ups. Now on the way back home I feel awesome and am so happy I went for it.
Here’s hoping I don’t crash in class. Uhoh

Update: lunch break with my favorite magazine which basically repeats information every month but keeps me motivated 🙂
