Weekend Recap & Back to school

It's Monday today. Who loves Mondays?

I'm sure everyone loves Mondays. It's usually the day that most people go back to work or school after a great weekend. For me, it's the first day back to school. After a month and a half winter break, school finally started back up. I bet you guys are thinking, "Lucky! That's such a long break!"
In contrast, I'm thinking, "I'm bored. There's nothing to do. When is school going to start?"

Anyway, how I spent my weekend before the first day of school was fun! Here's what I did.

On Saturday, I went to my friend's birthday party. It was so much fun. Dancing, singing, walking/running with their dog, eating, it was so much fun. I made a fool of myself with dancing but at least I wasn't the only one. It was fun.
After the party, I went grocery shopping with the family.

The cereal tastes just like Honey Nut Cheerios. The almond milk is yummy and creamy. I have yet to try the ProMax Nutty Butter Crisp. It was on sale at the store, so I bought one to try. I'll have to buy more later on this week if I end up liking them.

On Sunday, I hung out with a few friends at Starbucks. It was nice to catch up. We talked for a few hours and walked and shopped at a nearby Target. I got the Skinny Vanilla Latte at Starbucks. And, at Target, I bought a can of black beans and a can of garbanzo beans.

So, school was alright. It's just like any other school day, basically. It was the same as last semester.  I only had one class today and it was my US History Class. My history professor seems pretty cool, even though we  have to read some of books he co-authored. He really knows his stuff and he's passionate about it.

And, now, I have to say some fitness stuff because I'm thinking about it right now. I've been doing HIIT on the treadmill for the past two weeks and guess what, I've gotten a lot faster! I'm so happy. It really does increase your speed. The HIIT was switching from the speed of 4 to 8. Before, I could barely continue running at a constant speed of 6. Now, I can do 7 (yea. I'm slow. Don't judge me).

Today, I went to my school's gym and I tried a new upper body arm workout. I want to gain some muscle (but not too much!). It was pretty intense and I can't believe your body can heat up from doing an upper body strength training workout. I also used the stair master for the first time. It gets sweaty! I mean, it reminded of China. It was humid in China and I stayed at my grandparents apartment while we were visiting my parents hometown. No elevators. We had to go up the stairs and I got really sweaty! That's why it reminded me of China.

Anyway, I guess that's it.

Do you guys like Mondays?
How was your weekend?


  1. Oh I am like you, I love having time off - but hate when I don't have anything to do!

    I hope your first week back goes super well! It sounds like your professor definitely knows his stuff, haha.

    1. I know. Having nothing to do is boring.

      And, yes. You have to know your stuff to write a book!
