post-workout drink

I do some hard exercise on Mondays. I work out with a group of colleagues, who have arranged a personal trainer to come to school and run a session with us at 5pm. As a reward after a hard workout, I have been buying (during my lunch duty at the canteen) a little box of chocolate milk. I have been enjoying it on my way home.

Today I had a brainwave. I brought in my empty water bottle, with a scoop of vanilla protein powder in it. Then I poured in the chocolate milk, shook it up, and stashed it in the staff room fridge. Then afterwards I had a wonderful, cold, creamy drink; a great reward!

mundane life things

It is a long time since I have blogged here. So I am using the only productivity strategy I have: just start with any small step. Thus, a post of mundane items. Its sole purpose it to restart a habit. This post has no other intrinsic value.

I have a mosquito bite on my elbow. What an awkward place for a bite. I have learned that I eat with my elbows on the table a lot. My grandfather would sing at me to chastise me if he could see.

I ate spaghetti with tomato sauce for lunch and accompanied this with a bowl of cherry tomatoes. Here's to more tomatoes! I love their summery flavour.

It's almost too hot for running now, except in the early morning. Sadly my running partner can only meet after work. It has been very sweaty recently. Also, I desperately need some sports sunglasses that I can wear while running.

I have started attending a Bible study group again for the first time in more than a year. It feels good to get some weekly Christian input from friends. And we eat together, which is good.
