Happy Fri-yay! What are you plans for the day and weekend? I plan on having a low key Friday night. Party animal I know 😉 Have a wonderful day!
Happy Veteran’s Day! Thank you to any service members and their families for their sacrifice.
When I woke up on Thursday, I was just ready to go. I definitely woke up on the right side of the bed which was okay with me. I showered and got ready for the day. For breakfast, I had two scrambled eggs, a glass of milk and tea to go. As a graduation gift, all of the seniors in my engineering program got these travel mugs which I thought was nice. Since it’s metal, my tea stay hots for so long! It’s perfect for when I have to be away from my desk in the morning since I still have a warm drink.
Work was going along well until I started to get a little hungry. Luckily, I thought ahead before I left my apartment this morning and threw an apple into my bag. It was hit the spot and held me over until lunch. During lunch I read more of “Into the Water” and was so close to finishing but my lunch was over so I couldn’t. Am I the only one who gets annoyed when you can’t finish a book during a certain time? Just me? Okay then…moving on 🙂
After work, I changed and headed out the door for my run. I had 6 x 2 minutes at an 8:05-8:15 pace. Overall, my run doesn’t look very fast due to a mile warm up, recovery jogs and mile cool down but my legs were burning by the last repeat. I felt really strong though and am happy with it. It’s crazy for me to think that a few months ago, I would’ve been scared by this workout and while it seemed intimidating at first when I saw the schedule, I knew I could crush it. Yes, I wore shorts yesterday but I wore a long sleeve shirt so I’m slowly getting ready for cold weather running 🙂
I got home, stretched and foam rolled before showering. Once I was clean and smelling good, I threw pjs on and cuddled up on the couch to finish the book. I’ll be honest, I was a little disappointed in the ending. I really enjoyed Paula Hawkins first novel, “The Girl on the Train” and maybe I set my hopes to high for her newest novel. I’m not sure but I didn’t think the ending was amazing. I loved it until the last 20 or so pages but I would still recommend it.
Alex texted me to tell me what time his train was getting into the station so I could plan dinner. We were finally going to have the rest of the leftovers from Sunday night but I knew we wouldn’t have enough to satisfy both of us. For whatever reason, I was really hungry yesterday so I threw a potato in the oven to roast. A few minutes before he got home, I put the pasta on the stove to heat up. Alex filled up his bowl first and I took the rest of the pasta plus potato. Again, I could eat just a roasted potato at night for dinner and be satisfied so having a bit of pasta was a bonus.
After dinner was cleaned up, Alex poured us glasses of wine while I lit a candle. I saw the Bath and Body Works candles are currently on sale so I may need to go pick some up. Do you have any winter favorites?! Please let me know if you do 🙂 I looked through the few books I own and settled on my next read. Even though I had every intention of starting it, I didn’t. I opted to chat with Alex instead. Sometimes a random chat is just what you need and good for the soul. Eventually we got up and headed to bed.
Question of the day: What type of blog posts do you want to see more of? Recipes, workouts, random stories tell me because I want to know!
