OK, it’s almost 3pm and I’ve been awake for over 13 hours. I’m (amazingly) feeling alert and strong, no fatigue setting in just yet.
Then again, I had a Zero Carb Rockstar (also known as “death juice”) this morning and a handful of dark chocolate covered espresso beans about an hour ago, so I’m running on a good amount of caffeine.
As anticipated, it has been a busy day. I managed to scarf down a couple Greek yogurts for breakfast (at 3am!) and I snuck a protein bar in around 6am, but being up this many hours guarantees that my stomach is going to keep growling all day. Fortunately, my planning paid off: I had a big bag of baby carrots, a banana, and a Trader Joe’s pre-made salad packed for the day, so other than a few pieces of chocolate (I needed the espresso beans!), I’ve been good! It doesn’t help that I’m surrounded by incredibly fit (as well as BEAUTIFUL) ladies in the morning, so I hardly paid attention to the danishes set out on the counter in the breakroom. How can you stuff your face with pastries when a supermodel-esque woman is watching?
I still have three more hours left of my work day (yipes!) before I head to Rollins College to set up camp in the library and work on homework, but I think I can make it through the day without falling asleep or succumbing to temptation. I am sad that I won’t have ANY time to workout (I probably won’t be home until 9:30pm and I need to be up by 2am), but I can make up for it with a long run on Tuesday.
All in all, it has been a good day!
Bon appetit, my friends!
