I'm back in Arizona and it's warm! Well, it was yesterday. Today it's rainy! I always seem to bring rain to AZ whenever I come back here, haha. It's actually supposed to rain all week though... fun, fun.
I got in around Sunday at noon. I took the lightrail from the airport to my apartment, which was chock full of PF Chang's half and full marathon runners. Cue MAJOR jealously, ha. One of the many races crossed out in my calendar! But I just told myself that when my injuries get better, I'll go do some super awesome destination half or marathon. I mean, if you're not in the gorgeous mountains of AZ, the scenery is insanely dirty and dull. So forget Rock N' Roll AZ, I think Big Sur in Cali would be fun ;)
So I had to do a MAJOR grocery shop yesterday since I had nothing in my apartment. I got a lot of good stuff, but I did get mad at Whole Foods for not having parsnips ;) But in their favor, the checkout lady noticed my WF reusable bag had a rip in it from all the grocery cartage, so she got me a new one for free! :D
Also at WF, I saw they had the new Chocolate Oikos greek yogurt and thought I'd give it a shot. I LOVE mixing cocoa powder + stevia into plain greek yogurt, and I've been wondering when the yogurt companies were gonna come out with a ready-made one.
Verdict? Eh. It was pretty good, but I guess my hopes were sky high. I much prefer just adding the cocoa powder + stevia myself (this one had sugar). I bought em to take to school though, cause it's MUCH more convenient to have a sealed ready-made package. These were the snack size, and there also wasn't much greek yogurt in there. Still, they'll be nice to take to school and the chocolate flavor was really rich--like dark chocolate. But as for me, I'll just keep making my own chocolate greek yogurt.
I had my physical therapy session today for my hip adductor injury. We're starting off with a lot of core exercises that don't aggravate the psoas muscle, and we'll go from there. I'm hopeful!
I ended the night with 2 big bowls of roasted veggies:
None of my beloved parsnips, but this bowl did have green beans, carrots, sweet onion, and brussels sprouts.
Alright, I've got my first day of school tomorrow. Tuesdays aren't so bad--I've got Forensic Anthropology, Human Anatomy/Physiology lecture and a harp lesson. I also only have class from 9-2:30, which isn't too bad compared to last year!
Q: What time do you normally eat dinner?
I'm curious! I normally eat around 6 or 6:30. I don't like eating before 5:30 or after 7:30 or so. Does it matter to you?
