Coulda Woulda Shoulda

Today was my course introduction at London Met, and if I learned one thing, it’s that it’s going to be a very long year.

I seriously would be more excited about it if I didn't miss 1/2 of my introduction. I thought my intro started at 11. That was what my welcome print out told me!  Apparently, that time can change from the day you print it out to the day you have to show up! Can someone please tell me how that happens without any sort of notification?? I was not a happy camper! The building is very complicated to navigate through and if it hadn't have been for the one (the first one told me to follow the wrong group that was leaving the building!!) helpful London Met guide, I would be travelling in circles fo sho!

I'm trying to stay positive here but it's sort of hard with no friends, and being surrounded by kids much much younger than I am!! Patience Hanna. PATIENCE! 

Well at least my morning started off on a good note with a lovely bowl of blueberry oats. For anyone that has a hard time getting in their 5 a day of fruits and veggies, I recommend sneaking in fruit whenever possible- for me, it has always been in smoothies and oats!
His and Her's oats. I topped mine with almond butter and topped his with speculoos crunchy!
I needed the extra protein in mine to get through my workout and to hussle straight afterwards to my course meeting.
in the mix:
  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 1/2 cup soy milk
  • 1/2 cup water
  • frozen blueberries (dethawed while cooking on stove)
  • maple syrup
  • dash of salt
In the gym: 3 sets, 8-10 reps, 3 minute quick warm up on treadmill
  • lat pulldown (25kg)
  • hammer curls (5kg)
  • seated row (20 kg)
  • bicep dumbbell curls (5kg)
  • barbell row (15kg)
  • barbell bicep curl (10kg)
  • Stretch
I was starving by the time I got home from the meeting and it was only 12:30! I quickly made another Tiger Tiger noodle lunch.
veggies- red peppers, red onions, spinach, garlic
all combined in schezuan sauce and a squeeze of siracha
a delicious vegetarian AND GF lunch :)
Last night was a better representation of a good day. I got to see Crazy, Stupid, Love **Ryan Gosling- heart SWOON!!!** and play catch up with some lovely ladies. It's nice to be social every once and a while ;). The movie was super cute but dinner was L-A-M-E. We went to the Banana Tree that serves pan Asian cuisine. Coulda, Woulda, Shoulda known a restaurant that’s trying to do too many things wouldn't be that great! I got the Pho and with the exception of me being super hungry, it was pretty lackluster in taste and quality. At least we tried!

Agenda: Hmm.. I got nothin!
