Happy Tuesday! How was your Monday? I hope your week started off on a positive note. Have a great day 🙂
At some point, I woke up in the middle of the night and was really confused on what day it was. When my alarm went off, I was not at all confused. I got ready and was had ample time to eat breakfast. A few weeks ago, Laura from Laura Likes Design, posted about how she gets dressed with purpose everyday and sets everything out the night before. I’ve been doing that for a few weeks now and it helps me so much in the morning. I don’t even have to open drawers or the closet! For breakfast, Alex and I had scrambled eggs and bacon.
During the morning at work, I realized I didn’t plug my Garmin in to charge. Alex suggested that I go home during my lunch break to plug it in. I figured since we only live 10 minutes away then why not. The perk of forgetting to plug my watch in was being able to read on the couch instead of at my desk. Win!
When work ended, I ran home and got changed before heading out the door to run. My workout was 4 x 1200m repeats. I wasn’t sure how these long repeats would go but I felt pretty good and each one got faster, woo! My splits were 6:22, 6:12, 6:12, and 6:04. I decided to finish my cool down in our parking lot since there was a car parked in the parking lot at the park I ran at. It creeped me out a bit (thank goodness I always bring my phone with me) so it’s always better to be safe than sorry especially now that it gets dark so early. A total of 6 miles for the night at a 9:25 pace.
After my run, I stretched and showered before getting dinner ready. I put some veggies in the oven to roast but when Alex and I saw how big the wraps were once we put them on our plates, we threw the veggies in a container and put them in the fridge. It wasn’t worth it to stuff ourselves just to get a few extra greens in. Dinner ended up just being buffalo chicken wraps. I used shredded buffalo chicken from the crock pot, cheese, and lettuce on a whole wheat wrap.
Post dinner clean up, I worked on my first of 3 DIY Christmas gifts. These are all for Alex’s family since making a craft and traveling on an airplane would not end to well. We decided to gift a red pepper infused olive oil as one of the gifts. It was so simple. Is this something you guys would like to see a post about? If so, please let me know! I would be more than happy. Once it was done, I put it in a glass container I found at Home Good for under $4. I tied a ribbon and viola! a simple addition to the gift we are giving.
I ended the night by curling up on the couch to read more. I’m really enjoying “Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe”. It’s taking me a little longer than normal since it’s 1) not a mystery/thriller novel and 2) when a good holiday song comes on Pandora I end up singing along. After a while, I ended to bed.
Question of the day: Alex and I are having a couple over for dinner on Saturday and I’m stumped on what to make. Any suggestions would be much appreciated!
