Not So Fast

Yesterday was my first day of summer vacation and I thought it was going to be so relaxing. I was wrong. As it turns out taking three Masters courses in the summer is pretty rigorous. Who knew? I should have. Have I already made my "taking Crack" joke on here about my decision to get my Masters in one year? If I haven't then I'll do it now. I must have been on Crack.

Even though yesterday entailed 7.5 hours of homework (I should have done so much more) I did get to do things that only summer would allow:

  • My workout was a full hour. I did this Bikini body video my sister in law gave me for Christmas. This last semester my workouts were about 30 minutes on cardio days and 45 minutes on cardio/strength training days. I prefer them to be 1 to 1.5 hours.
  • Grocery shopped at 11:00 am. That's a glorious time to shop. The only distraction was a very loud couple who always seemed to be in the row next to mine. They were very excitable, especially the husband. He was most excited about the pickles. He told his wife she could pick out any pickles she wanted. That made me laugh.
  • Used a bronzer for my pale, pale skin. John thinks it's already helping.
  • Cooked dinner. I mean really cooked. I made whole wheat penne pasta with turkey sausage and mushrooms. Poor John has been getting pretty much nothing but Lean Cuisines since January. A couple of weeks ago I heated up chicken nuggets in the oven and baked beans on the stove top and we felt like we were eating a home cooked meal.

I'm off to start my day of homework. This afternoon I'm getting a trim and partial highlights. When I called to make my appointment yesterday the girl asked me if I wanted full or partial highlights. I'm not exactly sure what that means but I told her partial. I hope that works out okay.

I think I made a comment about your lunacy when you decided about your masters. I'm just saying....

We also did our grocery shopping at 11 yesterday. It WAS glorious. We got Lean Cuisines for lunch. They were not awful. You can survive on those.

grocery shopping at off times and off days is glorious!
