Wow, I had the day from hell. It feels so good to be in my bed. So, this morning I got up at 9AM to get breakfast and go to the gym. At the gym, I pushed myself super hard on this program and burned 400 cals. in 30 minutes, which I thought was awesome. Then, I had to walk back to my room. Here's the thing about the gym. In order to get back to my room, I have to walk up about 30 steps, a long hill, some flat terrain, another 30 steps, flat terrain, up another hill and up six flights of stairs. It's seriously intense.

After that, I get back to my room and I'm dancing around because of endorphins while changing and listening to the radio. In the midst of my dancing, I forget that I need to go to class so I end up running to my class, which is pretty far. Then I run to lunch, because I don't have much time before I have to run to practice. After practice, I have to run up and down a building searching for someone and then run across campus to my next class. Then I have to run all the way back across campus for my next class, because I only have ten minutes. After that, I eat dinner and then go to ballroom dance practice. First, we do the tango, which is hard but not EXTREMELY. Then, we do samba. That is an extreme dance. By the end, I could not stop sweating and panting. You swing your hips in 3 different directions at the same time. And you're constantly bouncing and dancing. Anyway, 2 hours of that. And then I had to run to my meeting. Just got back to my room. Insane, but I think I burnt at least twice the amount of calories that I ate. At least, lol.

Hope everyone had a good Tuesday!

Bend that day like.....
Bet 'cha never heard that one before!
Non-gym calories seem to be so "organic!"
And well-earned.

Dang, you were running all day! When I was in college I was in the best shape of my life (up to now) and I know it was from running all over my hilly campus. Free workouts!
