Inspiration

Oh my gosh Breaking Bad blows my mind!! Ahhh! So many questions left unanswered.  For all you who watch it, what did you think? Is it how you thought it would end? I have this relieved but empty feeling now that another good series has ended. It’s the same feeling I get when I’ve finished reading a good book. *sigh*

So. Tuesday meals:

Meal Food Calories
Breakfast Corn flakes 100
Almond milk 30
Snack Fruit Smoothie 200
Lunch Apple sauce 50
Left over stir fry 150
Fiber one bar 90
Snack Pumpkin Scone 250
Dinner Curry Pumpkin Soup 125
Slice of bread 45
Flour tortilla 150
Total 1190

For lunch I ate the left over stir fry from Monday’s dinner with some added corn that we had left over from the Chicken Salad I made Friday for the Grad Student BBQ.  Filling and delicious!

And yes, I had another Pumpkin Scone.  That’s a total of 4 pumpkin scones I consumed.  Daniel ate the last one which saved me from having 5…. but I did ask for a bite of it. I miss them already =(

Now, since we were on a pumpkin theme, I decided it was time we finally ate the rest of the Curry Pumpkin Soup my Dad made back in August. Yep, that was still in our freezer (is that bad?).  And now we finally had some canned pumpkin to tone it down a bit (he added too much spice to it initially).

So I added what we had left from making the pumpkin scones.  Half a can of pumpkin, and some half and half.  I didn’t add too much half and half, but I figured it would make it creamier and less spicy.  If definitely was an improvement but still not quite up to par with the delicious soup Monica made for us back in Germany. She’s the one who gave my Dad the recipe and spices before he moved back home from Germany.

I’m thinking I need to buy some coconut milk or sweetened condensed milk to add to it.  We still haven’t eaten it all (my dad gave us a lot).  So for now it’s just in the refrigerator and we’ll hopefully eat it by the end of the week.

So for getting motivated to do pushups… I did 10! And then I called it good.  Better than none, but not the best. Hopefully we can get this P90x on a roll.

Random Thoughts

Walking around on campus, I see many girls wearing workout gear — nike shorts, tanks, running shoes, etc. Personally, I feel weird going to class without “real” clothes on. You know, jeans and a t-shirt. Anyways, that’s not the point. The point is that these girls look so fit and healthy. They inspire me to want to jump into my gym clothes and workout. Maybe they wear their gym clothes to motivate themselves to workout. It’s one less step if you’re already wearing them.  But someday, I aspire to be that same inspiration. Not necessarily wearing gym clothes, but looking fit and healthy.

What’s your inspiration? Aspiration?
