It’s Wednesday, Wednesday, gotta get down on Wednesday. And since it’s Wednesday, you know what that means…Thanks once again to Jen for making Wednesdays not so suckie.
Today was the first day of my routine of adding more weights into my workout regimen. (Woo hoo for strength training!) That means I am upping my protein and eating more often…Not that I didn’t eat a lot before or anything 😉 I got the inspiration to do this program from Brittany. She has had a lot of success from it so I figured, what the hey! I’ll give it a try too. It’s Jamie Eason’s 12-week Trainer and I’m super excited for it 🙂 Phase 1…here we go.
I woke up this morning at the crack of dawn: 5:30am! The school gym opened at 6 so I wanted to get there early to skip out on all the people. While walking to the gym, I snacked on an unpictured orange.
What I Worked: elliptical warm up, chest/triceps, abs, bike cool down
I totally forgot how much I love weights! I did it a lot over the summer for basketball, but I just stopped once coming to school. It felt great to get back into it.
I had english at 8am so I headed off to class with the smoothie I made last night.
I ended up only drinking half of it because I had to do a group presentation. Nailed it. Obvi.
Once I came back to the dorm, I sat down for a little something more…
That was followed by…
The recipe for the protein cake can be found over at Foods of April. But here it is:

1. Mix all ingredients together.
2. Microwave for 1 min.
3. Eat it plain or top with pb (I highly recommend this.)

This is actually a little bit relevant to my life right now because there’s a flippin mouse in my dorm! Yes. A mouse. My roommate saw it the other night and while I was standing on my bed, afraid for my life, I saw him scurry by. I haven’t seen him since but he left me a little surprise over the weekend. I have a crate filled with snacks and when I came home from Portland, I noticed there was popcorn in my closet. So I lifted up the crate and a bunch of popcorn fell out. Turns out, the mouse had some delicious food because almost all of my snacks had holes in them. That mouse better be happy because he got some organic popcorn. Spoiled little thing.
