For breakfast I had oatmeal with cinnamon, banana slices and pecans. Yummy!
For lunch I went with both a small spinach salad, and a veggie burger. It was a delicious combination.
The pesto and vegetables turned out pretty good for dinner. I ended up heating the tomatoes too with the broccoli and spinach. If you’re a non-vegan, a little parmesan would probably be tasty with it.
For my exercise I did the final fifth day of the Five Day Workout Plan. Now after the fifth day, take a rest day or two and then start all over again.
This one will give you abs of steel. But first it will make your abs sore! I need a nice ab stretch sesh afterwards. Feel free to add some cardio as well!
So classes have resumed today for the semester. I can’t believe I’m onto my second semester of grad school already! But don’t worry, I’m making an effort to time manage so I don’t fall short blogging again. Hopefully!
