Happy hump day! I hope you are all having a great week so far. We’re halfway to the weekend. Have a great day 🙂
Yesterday morning started on an interesting note. I was feeling really good about my timing until I got out of the shower and realized it was already 6:30, oops! Luckily I was able to quickly get dressed and do my makeup. For breakfast, I had a piece of toast with peanut butter and chia seeds sprinkled on top. When I was eating Alex asked where I put his socks. I told him in the normal drawer but maybe I switched his socks and mine since apparently my workout socks were in his drawer. I opened my drawer and his socks weren’t there. They are straight up gone!! We have looked in so many drawers and baskets and can’t find them anywhere.
Work was uneventful after seeing the solar eclipse Monday. I had no complaints though since I was really able to focus instead of checking to see how dark it was getting. After work, I had a three mile run that I was dreading all day. The feels like temperature was well above 90 degrees. Shockingly I wasn’t dead post run so that’s a win to me! I tried my Nathan handheld water bottle for the first time. To be honest, I don’t know how I feel about it. I’m not used to drinking water during runs but I know that it’ll be important on long runs. I’ll use it a few more times before I make a real decision!
After showering and stretching I was hungry and started working on dinner. I roasted some potatoes and broccoli to enjoy with the pulled pork. The crockpot won dinner again by working all day to cook the pork. Something about summer just screams barbecue weather to me so I’m trying to soak it in before summer ends.
Yesterday I mentioned that I started “The Boy in the Striped Pajamas” and finished it during lunch at work. I thought it was good and that was all. On my run, I started to think about it more and I realized it might make my list of book recommendations when someone asks me. The way John Boyne writes about two children during World War II is beautiful. Something about it really stuck with me and I don’t want to ruin anything but if you haven’t read it, you really should. To me, it says something about terrible situations that are happening and the naivety of children which can be both good and bad. I started “All the Light We Cannot See” by Anthony Doerr. I’m on a World War II historical fiction kick currently!
After reading for a bit, Alex wanted to watch tv and I was in! We’re still watching “Arrested Development”. If you haven’t heard of this show, it’s about a family where the father is arrested for bad business practices. The characters are all so different and the way they interact is so funny. We tend to watch it at night since it’s a more thoughtless show but still entertaining. After 2 episodes we called it a night and got in bed.
Question of the day: Do you carry a water bottle with you during runs or workouts?
