2L Year, What? Bring It.

Today is my first day back at law school! Bring it on 2L year! 
First Day Outfit! Off to school! 
When I got up this morning I decided to do my workout right away, get it done before I got consumed by nerves! I have the Jillian Michael’s 30-Day Shred DVD, which I love to use when I’m short on time. I can just pop it in my computer rather than having to walk all the way to the gym and back. The DVD has three 20-minute workouts: Level 1, Level 2, and Level 3. The workouts start with a warm up end with a cool down and have three 6 minute circuits. Each circuit is 3 min strength, 2 min cardio, and 1 min abs. It’s meant to burn as many calories as possible in a 20 min workout. I did the Level 3 video and then the Level 1 video, because I feel like 20 min is just not enough! 

After I’d showered and done some blog work, I was STARVING! So I made some banana and PB2 oats and a side of scrambled egg whites.

Oats:
1/2 cup oats
1/2 cup almond milk
1/2 cup water
1/2 sliced banana
2 tbl. PB2 powder
sprinkle of flax

Perfect and filling breakfast! Exactly what I needed after my workout and to get me ready to head back to school! I also packed up my lunch and snacks. For lunch I packed a salad of chopped Romaine with cucumbers, mushrooms, carrots and 1/2 cup of white kidney beans. I used some lemon juice, apple cider viengar and pepper for a dressing. I love mixing this dressing because I think it’s nice and light for the summer!

For my snacks, I brought a mini Luna bar for before lunch, a sliced apple, and then a normal Luna bar for later in the afternoon. Let’s just say I was glad my last class was cancelled, because I would have been very hungry by 7:25 when it ended! Note: pack more filling lunch for next Monday! (that’s my longest day).

Once school was over I headed to my bus. I love going to school downtown because there’s always so much energy and I love the buildings and the river! It’s so pretty! Ok well today it was pretty, let’s see if I’m singing the same tune in January…

When I got home I decided to try a Chicken Pot Pie that I’d had in my freezer forever. I wasn’t super hungry so I knew I wouldn’t mind waiting 45 min to bake it in the oven.

 It’s made with organic vegetables and crust. I got it at whole foods months ago and never pulled it out to try! Tonight feels like a chicken pot pie night! (aka I don’t feel like a smoothie for dinner and I’m tired of veggies from lunch…).

When it came out it was alright. The crust was good, but not super flaky, and it was really soupy. I wish there were more veggies in there and less gravy stuff. Oh well, gotta give things a try!

Now it’s time to go pick up Neville from my brother’s apartment! He’s been there because I needed someone to feed him while I was in Kansas City. Now I miss the little guy! Plus his bowl is probably quite dirty…

All in all, my first day back was pretty good! I feel good about my classes and it was nice to have the last one cancelled so my day wasn’t quite as long. I feel like it just flew by! It was also great to see people I hadn’t seen since May! I kind of flew under the radar this summer.

Today was the first day for a lot of schools, anyone else have a big day?
