Alright, peeps. It’s official: my very last day of classes as an undergrad was today! I feel kind of old? Just kidding. I’m so excited to graduate and get my life going! There is so much to look forward to. Those things called finals? We can just pretend they don’t exist.
This morning, I pushed my bod pod to the limit and it felt so good. Mmm mmm good, to be precise! I began with the MoJo Maker HIIT workout (thanks for the booty call, K&K!) on the cardio apparatus of death.
In all seriousness, the StairMaster isn’t death – but it really does challenge me like no other cardio machine. I’m going to miss it when I leave FSU! Yes, I’ll miss a cardio machine. I’m not normal. Anyways, after my cardio session, I was pleasantly exhausted and looked like a swamp beast. But I had a brand new abs routine to look forward to!
Do this routine and your beautiful abs will be singing your praises. Trust me. Remember that change is uncomfortable and keep pushing!
I was literally glued to my laptop all afternoon, writing an article for my editorial workshop class. Around noon, I was hungry and decided to break for lunch. Instead of going down to the dining hall, I whipped up a quick salad in the comfort of my dorm room.
I went extra heavy on the mesquite today – hence the corny caption. Kale, baby carrots, avocado, nutritional yeast-crusted tofu, and mesquite made up this lovely little meal. That was it! Held me over for the entire afternoon, too. Win!
The remainder of the afternoon was filled with more writing, in addition to the final class of my undergraduate career! Before I knew it, it was dinner time. Tonight’s dinner was darn delicious.
I kind of went veggie-crazy (no surprise there). To start, I made a salad with homemade BBQ slaw, which was essentially cabbage, chopped pickles, and a mustard vinaigrette. On the small plate, I enjoyed tofu and veggie skewers with avocado drizzle, chopped spinach, and grilled summer squash. To be honest, I wasn’t really feeling the salad so I stopped after a few bites. The rest was delicious, though!
