Yesterday was my first day back to uni this year, and I have to say it went rather well, a lot better than I had expected.
I was actually excited about going back to my student life from a very relaxed (and super long) summer holiday.
However, I expected to be really tired by the end of such a busy day (classes from 9 to 5 with only an hour’s break).
For some reason though, I was full of energy all throughout the whole time, and even when I went to the Body Attack class in the end of the day I realized how energetic my body was despite the fact that it was my first day back at uni.
I didn’t feel tired at all, and I felt so good working out, like I didn’t want to stop!
I had never felt this good in a Body Attack class before, so this was a big surprise for me.
I was a happy kid by the end of the class, and I loved every single bit of it (though the class was rather crowded yesterday…new semester means lots of new people)!
Or maybe it was just the coffee I took before the class. I don’t know.
Whatever it was, I had a great day and did not feel like collapsing on the bed when I got back home, which was a good sign (last year, I spent most of my uni days feeling lethargic and could never get enough sleep).
Speaking of sleep, I am really having trouble with that lately.
I’m not sure if it’s a sort of insomnia or something, but I have been having trouble having a good, long quality sleep over the past month or two.
I can never sleep for more than 3 hours in a go (2 hours when it’s bad), and it takes time for me to go back to sleep again after that.
Even when my body was tired, I just could not sleep.
Last night was a little better though, and I just woke up twice for very brief periods of time but could go back to sleep easier than before.
But in total I could only sleep for 5.5 hours, so I wish I could have been able to give a better rest to my body but I couldn’t.
Some things you just can’t control.
But maybe being back to uni will help me.
I guess I’ll have to wait and see how it goes.
On another note, here are a few photos I took recently.
My new lunch box for salads, with separate compartments and a tiny box for dressings and cutlery.
Dinner with Dad at La Taverna, a Greek place near my flat. He had the grilled chicken with a lemon cream sauce, with a side of salad and chips.
And my grilled salmon with a side of grilled veggies and a salad. I have to say, my favorite part of this dish were the perfectly cooked carrots! They almost tasted like sweet potatoes so I checked with the waitress but she assured me they were carrots. So good. I wish I could cook carrots that well…I’d be eating them for every meal if I could.
Lunch with Beckie at an Israeli cafe in Bondi Junction…we shared the Kefta sandwich on Turkish bread, which was just so amazing. Totally satisfied!
Beckie’s skim cap…coffee art comes out so much prettier on cow’s milk rather than soy.
As usual, turned out to be all food photos, but I can’t help it, they just look so good!
Anyway, I better go back to reviewing over the lecture material from this morning now.
Have a good day!
