Yesterday has to have been the WORST food day of my life.
Not that the food wasn't tasty--no, when you are so hungry you are delerious food tends to taste fine--but... okay, just look:
breakfast: normal (already posted)
1 hr. swim team
snack: huh? Snack? Oh, of course, look who brought a ORANGE FLAVORED LUNA BAR.
I thought I was grabbing lemon zest, but NOOOO. Well, I wasn't really THAT hungry (swimming makes you feel more hungry, anyway, so I figured I would wait until second or third period to see how hungry I really was) I gave the luna bar to my friend, who doesn't have to be at school until 10:15 due to finals.
lunch: ??? What is this "lunch" you speak of? OH!!! I know, it's that 25 minute "period" that our school most graciously gives its students!!! Isn't that when you go to the cafeteria and eat your most delicious, homeade pb&j, apple, preztles and homeade oatmeal cookie?
Oh yeah, that. Helps when you DON'T forget your lunch and ASB card. Plus, the only thing I can eat in the lunch room is overripe, warm apples, mushy nanas, and cocoa puffs. All of which cost about 2 bucks each. I skipped and had my after school snack. (apple) Oh, and studied for finals.
(Who in G-D'S NAME gives eighth graders finals???!!! I really don't care about the "your taking 9th grade math" thingy, we have to take finals AND we don't get this "only 2 hours of school" thing)
A.S. snack (after school): hmmm...had that for lunch, didn't I? Oh well, I thought ignorently, I'll just buy a luna bar at QFC today and walk home!
It helps when your money is in your POCKET, not swim bag, which is at the pool.
So I walked (nearly ran) home, where I had a nana-chocolate muffin-made-in-microwave (dump 1/2 a nana, few scoops flour, some sweetener to taste, 1 T cocoa powder, TEENY WEENY bit of baking soda/powder into a bowl with some water. Micronuke for 2 min.) and some salsa.
Then, only fifteen minutes after that I walked BACK to the pool, where I swam for one hour, 40 min. more.
By now I was RAVENOUS, to the point that I told my coach that I couldn't work on flip turns do to the fact that I was dizzy. Got out of the pool, called my mom, who picked me up. Than...oh boy did I eat:
dinner: 10 oz. veggies (broccoli and string beans),
6 T cream of wheat (3 w/ chocolate powder, 3 w/ cinnamon, jam, and an apple),
1 packet instant oatmeal (apple and cinnamon. I prefer old fashioned.), rest of the JAR of salsa,
salad <iceberg lettuce and an apple>
So today more than half of my calories came 6:30-7:45 when I (yes, this early on a Friday--I have no social life!!!) colasped into bed, exasted and still hungry.
And since I am in a ranting mood, may I complain about my new water polo suit??? To make it easy, look at this:
It doesn't fit my sister.
My little sister.
Who is four years younger than me.
Personally, I would take being grabbed onto ANY DAY over this thing. It's, seriously, only a foot long. When my friend zipped me up she lifted me out of the water!!!
No, this is not me. It's just a pic. (but truWest is the sports people that sponser us, so this is the type of suit we wear.) I don't know what that girl is smiling about, though I highly doubt she is a water polo player. If she was she would be grimicing in pain.
I have chaffing (rubbing from the suit) in the WORST places. Really, there is a reason why I didn't do any weights today: I couldn't move!!!
HOWEVER...LOOK AT THESE NUMBERS!!!
swim: 6000 yards (3.4 miles. I have never swam that much in my LIFE) or 2.5 hours
walking: 3 miles (nearly running speed)
running: 30 min.
On a side note, can someone tell me what these are?
Today so far: 3 T cream of wheat, 1/8 cup oatmeal (would've been 1/4 cup if it weren't for my stupid micronuker!!!), 10 oz. spinach, 5 oz. green beans
I don't know what excersizes, but I am DEFENTIALLY gonna do shoulders, as I got an email from my coach about it.
