In my opinion, one of the worst parts of training trip (besides, of course, waking up at an ungodly hour, 5+ hours of practice a day, and really hard training) is having to cook for yourself.

Here are thoughts you have while cooking during training trip:

  1. I’m going to make a list.
  2. I’m going to check it twice.
  3. He’s making a list, and checking it twice…
  4. Clearly I needed a longer Holiday break.
  5. I’M SO HUNGRY.
  6. I’m also exhausted.
  7. The last thing I want to do right now is cook.
  8. Actually, I’d rather cook than swim.
  9. I low-key miss the dining hall.
  10. Having food ready for me is so nice.
  11. I hope we have enough food.
  12. Probably should’ve gotten more.
  13. Definitely¬†should’ve gotten more Oreos.
  14. Is this even going to taste good?
  15. Honestly, I’m so hungry I don’t even care.
  16. Pasta.
  17. Pasta.
  18. More pasta.
  19. Not sure how much longer I can survive off of Oreos and pasta.
  20. I should probably mix in a vegetable.
  21. Baby carrots count, right?
  22. I should really go on Top Chef.
