Happy Fri-yay! Can you believe it’s December 1st? How is it December already? I feel like summer was yesterday! 2018 will be here before we know it. Have a great day 🙂
Since my morning has not changed at all this week, I figured instead of boring you will another picture of eggs and toast I would share the current tea I’ve been drinking. Chai tea is something I really enjoy thanks to Starbucks chai tea lattes. I figured since those aren’t the healthiest, I would try different versions of chai tea and have been doing so for about 3 years now. My current pick is from the brand Stash and it’s their chai spice black tea. So good and flavorful!
Work was uneventful except for the fire drill my office had. Everyone was joking that of course they did it on Thursday when it was in the high 40s instead of Wednesday when it was almost 60. Is New Jersey the only part of the country having super weird weather this fall? I think I’ve broken up a big sweater only once this fall which is crazy.
After work, I headed out for a speed workout. It was an interval workout that involved getting shorter time intervals but faster paces. I wasn’t too sure about how it would go, but I kept an open mind and surprised myself at how I enjoyed it. Although I haven’t looked at my times yet, I’m really happy with how my legs felt during it. When I got home, I pulled out my must haves for post runs: water, foam roller and a frozen golf ball. If you have a golf ball around your house, stick it in the freezer. It’s amazing to rub your feet and arches on post runs.
Alex had another work event in the city so it was just me for dinner. I roasted a potato, broccoli, and brussel sprouts to enjoy. Since I am obsessed with roasted potato topped with ketchup and hot sauce, I put that on a plate to enjoy instead of in the bowl. Such an easy, filling and delicious dinner. While I ate, I realized that I ate vegetarian all day yesterday and the day before. So strange for me since I’m pretty picky so meat is a great source of nutrients for me. Maybe I’ll have to go meatless a few times a week more often.
Once I cleaned up from dinner, I headed out to run some errands. I don’t typically run errands on weeknights unless it’s right from work but we needed milk and a few other things from Target. At a Target slightly farther away, there’s a Michaels next door. Since I had a return I figured I’d pop over there before Target. And since Trader Joe’s was on the way home, I figured why not stop there too for more Just Fruit bars… Because you always leave TJ’s with exactly what you’re looking for, I got the bars, dried pineapple, bread, fruit leather, pizza sauce and a bottle of wine. I need to stop going to TJ’s with my credit card and just bring cash to limit myself. Also TJ’s where were the candy cane Joe-Joe’s this year?! I love those things and was going to buy
seven boxes one box.
When I got home, I put on my clay face mask and got on the couch to finish my book. I finished “The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo” and I recommend it. The novel is about a movie star, Evelyn Hugo, who is telling her life story to a reporter. It’s something I think everyone can relate to since it deals with love and heartbreak. Do yourself a favor and go pick it up! I think you’ll be satisfied.
After I finished, I decided to eat a leftover truffle from Thanksgiving and finish my cheesy Christmas movie on Netflix. “A Christmas Prince” was every bit as cheesy as I expected. Once it ended, I turned “Friends” on. The hope was that I would stay awake to say hi to Alex but I fell asleep on the couch. Oh well, it’s the thought that counts right?!
Question of the day: What’s your favorite Trader Joe’s item?
