Some people have all the luck...

I PASSED my anatomy theory test that I honestly believed I had failed. I am one step closer to becoming a Personal Trainer. After the most shitastic (excuse my language) week and a few tears shed in a bathroom.. yep a bathroom for no real reason, this is GREAT news to end my week. I think I might have scared my teacher when he said I passed and I almost shouted "you're kidding me!!" at him. :-D
I had a quite yummy black bean burger yesterday @ I decided to go vegetarian for lunch. It was extra good because it was on an actual sesame seeded bun. Woo hoo! London restaurants are notorious for serving their burgers all kinds of different breads- no gracias!

Dinner: Sauteed kale, mushrooms with chicken and quinoa.

I might have gone a lil overboard w. the soy sauce :o)

Breakfast: Multi-grain bagel w. cream cheese n honey. Banana's and apples with peanut butter. 
Pre-cycle class snack break. I stopped in Sainsbury's and helped myself to the salad bar. In the mix: beets, pasta, peppers, cucumbers, olives, feta, beans, and corn.
I did my first spinning class today. It was actually a mock class taught by a classmate of mine who will be teaching her first class tonight. I was a serious SKEPTIC about spinning and I did NOT want to do it. Surprisingly, I thought the class was REALLY effective and a very challenging but amazing workout. My legs were burning about halfway through the class and it was only 30 minutes!! I would definitely recommend spinning to anyone looking for a high intensity, maximal calorie burning, and efficient workout. Good stuff really!

Time to relax after the long week...
