Happy Sunday! How’s your weekend so far? I hope the weather is nice by you today since it’s supposed to rain all day here in Central Jersey. Have a great day 🙂
I woke up Saturday morning ready to go. My run was 9 miles and it was beautiful out!! The roads were pretty empty so it was just me out running which was nice. I got 9 miles in at 9:36 average pace. The last three miles were progressively faster and my legs were feeling it at the end. I ended with some bodyweight exercises before stretching and foam rolling.
Before a shower I headed out for a few errands and got a much needed eyebrow wax. Does anyone else forget how long it’s been since they got their brows done? That’s typically how I know its time to go ha! After getting home and showering, I started a new book. After reading another of Beatriz William’s novels and enjoying it, I grabbed A Hundred Summers. During the day, I managed to read three quarters of it so it’s a great book so far.
For lunch, I made a black bean and cheese quesadilla. I topped it with salsa and it was delicious! Filling it with black beans was a great idea since it kept me full for a while. Naturally, I headed back to the couch to read after eating.
I opened up my baking book that I got for Christmas from my parents to. There was a recipe I had in mind for a few weeks and I adopted a recipe to fit my idea. The afternoon was spent baking and it was amazing! The amount of self control it took to not eat a cupcake before dinner was unreal. The entire kitchen smelled so good.
Earlier in the week, I told Alex I was in the mood for sushi. Which is shocking because I would never suggest that. So sushi we got! I had miso soup, the salad form Alex’s combo and the only sushi I’ll eat, an avocado and cucumber roll. Does that even count as sushi since there’s no seafood in it? Asking for a friend… I shocked everyone (i.e. Alex and me) by trying a piece of Alex’s spicy roll. It was good too and it even had some sort of fish in it.
To end the night, we cuddled on the couch to watch and episode of “The Crown”. We split a cupcake too and it was yummy 🙂 I fell asleep for a bit in the episode but luckily Alex went back the few minutes so I could catch up. When it was over we headed to bed.
Question of the day: Do you like sushi?
