Second day of classes was today, which meant a pretty short day overall, though Tuesdays and Thursdays are always going to be short (I might try putting my Spanish Lab into one of these two days or something so I don't overload my Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays). Actually slept until 6 this morning, which is something I've been finding hard to do for the past couple of days. I think it was the nerves of having to pack, travel back to campus, and first day of classes, but it felt good. I have to watch what I eat at breakfast. More fruit, less hash browns, but they had fresh huge strawberries this morning. Yum! It's been a while since I've had strawberries (they've been so expensive at the Wal-Mart here). I wish I had a fridge so I could bring some back and slice them up for an afternoon snack. Went way huge on fruits and veggies though. I don't have a lot of time at lunch to eat, so eating a salad and a plate of veggies with a little ranch on the side works perfectly. :) Had Trig this morning, but arrived early after breakfast. Robin walked around the halls with me a few times. I'm finding it much easier to get extra steps in without really even thinking about it. This works well since she likes walking and it gives me something to do since I tend to get to the buildings way early. I also am feeling proud of myself. I'm not so winded when I walk up the stairs which is an improvement since stairs are my worst enemy (though I've also noticed that my knee issues have gone down as well with working out and eating right, which makes the stairs easier too). Trig doesn't sound like it's going to be too bad since the professor's willing to walk us through stuff to help us get that 'A' that I really want. Got out a little early, so I went back to my room and did the bootcamp video. It's getting easier as well. Yay!
As said, had salad and major veggies at lunch. Yum yum. Then went to my class in the same building. Texas Government shouldn't be too bad. Got out way early there as well, and Robin's got a class next door, so we can walk together, and I might walk with her over to her next class the rest of the semester and just dwaddle around campus for a bit, maybe bring some homework and a blanket with me and study outside once in a while. It'll be really nice. Took a short nap this afternoon before working out. Came to the conclusion that working out inside is torture when it's absolutely beautiful outside. I think I'll do walks around the campus for half an hour or so on my off days from First Week to 5k. Still looking for the SPEC classes schedule to see if they might do anything that would pique my curiosity. Halved my sandwich for supper tonight since it was the major calorie killer yesterday. Was just as good and allowed me more veggies. I've become a veg-aholic methinks.
Of course, the one black spot on my day is the fact that my textbook, which I need to get the questions out of for my short quiz tomorrow (thank goodness it's only 3 questions and super easy), did not come today like promised and was supposed to. How long does it take to fly from Phoenix to San Antonio? That's my great question since it should have been here...So we'll see how I do on my quiz tomorrow. Gotta do catch-up this weekend already because of that...And get to visit my least favorite place on campus, the bookstore to get my other books. Gotta love money going down the tube.
