Playing With The Big Kids Now

I had my grad school orientation today! Not to sound completely nerdy, but I’m actually really excited. I know it’s going to be hard work and I’m definitely going to need to improve my time management, but I can already tell it’s going to be an amazing two years in this program.  Everybody was so welcoming and friendly, I can tell it’s a tight-knit group that I’ll get to know well. Oh, and I already found an internship! It’s within a few departments at K-State that I’ll rotate through involving new technologies and licensing for 20 hours a week for both years of grad school. I’m excited but nervous. I’ll start at the beginning of September so I have at least a week of school to get accustomed to first before I start.

Ok enough school talk about that. Time for food!

Meal Food Calories
Breakfast Corn Flakes 100
Almond milk 90
Snack Fruit Smoothie 220
Lunch/Dinner Chipotle Burrito Bowl 550
Chipotle Chips and guac 360
Total 1320

As I mentioned yesterday, Daniel “subtly” hinted that we should go to Chipotle. By “subtle” I mean he “casually” coughed Chipotle a few times until I realized what he was trying to say. At first I thought he was saying “troll feet.” They sound similar when you’re coughing, I swear! So, anyways, I had my usual Burrito Bowl. I like to get the vegetarian with the fajita veggies and both bean options with it. I top it with mild and corn salsa, a little cheese and sour cream, and lots of lettuce. Yummy!


I split it in half and ate it for both lunch and dinner. It’s so much food, I usually can’t finish a bowl all in one sitting. Plus, I had this delicious smoothie before we went.

I added a banana, greek yogurt, strawberries, blackberries, almond milk, and orange juice. These fruit smoothies never fail to disappoint me!

For our workout, Daniel and I ran 2 miles and walked another mile and a half. It was hot and after several days of not running, I had lost some endurance.  Today I’m going frisbee (disc) golfing with Daniel and his friend Garret. I haven’t gone in a while so I’m looking forward to it. It may end up being my workout for today since I didn’t have time to go running earlier.

I hope you all are having a wonderful week so far! Happy hump day!
