Hi guys! How was your Monday? I hope it was good and you’re ready for today. Have a great one 🙂
I’m starting to miss having smoothies with my breakfasts, especially since the weather is getting back into summer like temperatures this week. After I was ready for work, I scrambled an egg and paired it with a Greek yogurt. The Oikos Triple Zero brand is my favorite and the healthiest Greek yogurt I’ve seen since there is no artificial sweeteners and barely an sugar in it.
Yesterday marked the last of the turkey that was in the fridge. I made my final turkey, cheese and ham sandwich for a while. It seemed like some people in our corporate offices were out yesterday since it was kind of slow. Sometimes I like slow days, other times I hate it. I was closer to the “I hate it” end of the spectrum yesterday since the hours seemed to drag on but it happens. Not everyday is going to be fast paced right?
With the slow work day I was ready to go run after work. As I was going to the garage door, Grace and Annie started to get excited that I was taking them on a walk. Unfortunately my speed work out wouldn’t have been very conducive to a dog with bad hips and one that’s 12 years old. My workout was tough but I felt good after. When I was on the cross country and track teams in high school, I hated speed workouts but now I love them. 3.45 miles including the warm up and cool down. With the warmer temperatures I really worked up a sweat in a short amount of time.
I was in big need of a shower when I got home. If you follow me on Instagram, you might have seen my story showing this but Annie decided to follow me up on the way to my shower. Grace wasn’t too sure about it but that’s okay. They are the cutest dogs and it will be hard to leave them later this week.
When I had my pjs on, I went down to start getting dinner ready. I cut up potatoes and broccoli to roast and got them in the oven. On Saturday, I cut up some chicken breasts and put them in a marinade to make spiedie’s. Spiedie’s are a sandwich from upstate New York that involves marinating meat (pork or chicken) for days and then grilling before placing on some good Italian bread. My Dad grew up in Binghamton, New York so he grew up with these and gets the marinades every Christmas from one of his brothers. Even if you don’t want to make a spiedie, the marinades from Lupo’s are delicious and they can be shipped to you. I highly recommend checking them out. Aside from the bread not being the best (it was too small) the meal was delicious.
Alex and I were talking about whether it was a bonfire night or hang out and watch tv kind of night. One check of the weather and we knew it was probably the last night to have a bonfire before his parents come home. New Jersey is supposed to get rain from Hurricane Jose today and tomorrow and we wanted at least one more bonfire. I had a glass of white wine as well. It is so calming to just sit outside and relax a bit at the end of the day. We let the fire burn out before heading inside to watch one episode of “Arrested Development” then headed up to bed.
Question of the day: What’s your favorite workout to do?
