Weekly Workouts #28 and Mardi Gras begins

Better late than never right? I had a busy but fun day! It started this morning with a ROTC fundraiser 5k for our unit at Tulane. The race started at 9 am so I met my other teammates at 8:15 am to jog over to the back side of Audubon Park where it started. We headed over a bit early but just chatted until the run started. We all took it easy and had fun. I came in first place for females and my teammate came in second. The two boys from the cross country team came in first and second too and a sprinter/mid distance runner came in fifth overall. It was a fun race and well organized and went to a good cause since we are all friends with a lot of the ROTC boys and one used to be on the team.

By the time we got our medals and made it back to campus it was already 10:30 am. I had turned the coffee pot on before I left so it was brewed and hot when I got back to my room. I also had a new to me caramel flavor of greek yogurt that I added muesli, multi-grain cheerios, mini chocolate chips, and silk milk to it. It was really good! I also had grapes, trail mix, some crackers and almond butter.

I spent the rest of the morning putting away laundry, chatting with my mom, and cleaning my room.

At 1 pm i met up with a teammate to head down St. Charles to watch some of the parades going on, my first ones of the year. It was a beautiful day. We stopped for some Yogurtland on our way back to campus too.

It was already 5 pm by the time we made it back and I have a lot of work to get done this weekend. I also decided to cook a bunch of veggies I had in my fridge. I roasted cauliflower, asparagus, mushrooms, carrots and sweet potato wedges. Then I used up the rest of my lettuce in the fridge and sauteed a piece of tilapia to have with my veggies and had half an avocado on top too. I also had two pieces of king cake for dessert that were in my fridge. I can’t get enough of it during carnival season! It is everywhere.
