So the first 2 weeks of my internship have been awesome! But they’ve also been a struggle, healthy living-wise. I have not run in weeks. I had beer, tomato soup, and Cheetos for dinner Friday night. Not my finest hour. But this week, I am ready! I have a meal plan, lots of fresh fruits and veggies, and these delicious snacks:
Anne P’s Oatmeal Dark Chocolate Granola Bars
I made a few changes to this one, swapping the spelt flour for a mix of whole wheat and white, and subbing golden raisins for the apricot. My house smells amazing right now!
I’m also going to try really hard to run 2x this week, do my “pull-ups” 3x, Bodyrock 2x, and do something fun this weekend, like hike or mountain bike. I miss being outside so much! These 9-hour days (plus a 1.5 hour round-trip commute) are really cramping my style! But I’m learning a lot and it will be SO worth it. I hope! :) I did sign up for the gym through my work, and new classes start next week – I’m hoping to take some strength training and maybe even try a new-to-me TRX class.
Has anyone else started a new job recently? Any tips on how to plan meals and exercise while transitioning to cube land?
