Happy Saturday! How are you this morning? It’s getting cold again in New Jersey so I’m back to being all bundled up. It’s the weekend though so you really can’t complain about that! Have a great day 🙂
I woke up Friday and was convinced that it had to have been the weekend. I was so dang tired! Obviously I knew it was a work day still so I got up and ready for work. If I was racing a snail to get ready, I’m pretty sure the snail would have won. I was sloooow moving. Luckily there was plenty of time to make breakfast so I scrambled some eggs and paired it with a muffin.
At work, I continued to read Wonder by R.J. Palacio. This was recently made into a movie and when I heard it was a book I decided to read that first. It was in my library as a kid’s book so I felt a little ridiculous going to that area to pick it up but whatever. I’m really liking it so far! It’s told from a few characters perspectives which I like since some are children.
When I got off work, I quickly headed home to change. Typically I don’t run on Fridays but because my running was off all week, my coach moved some workouts. So I had a 4 mile tempo run to tackle then went super well! With a warm up and cool down mile, I got 6 miles in at a 9:13 pace. It felt wonderful to get a tough workout in after only running once this week. Great way to start the weekend my friends!
By the time I was showered and in pjs, it was time to get dinner ready. I chopped up some brussel sprouts to roast and heated up the George Foreman. We dined on a very fancy meal of marinated chicken breasts, steam green beans and roasted brussel sprouts tossed in equal parts honey and balsamic. This is becoming my new favorite way to make roasted brussel sprouts! It’s slightly sweet from the honey but acidic from the balsamic.
Alex and I cleaned up from dinner then settled in on the couch to chill for a bit. While I read, I got some lovely guitar playing in the background. We flipped on an episode of Dirty Money on Netflix. It’s a documentary series on different corruption scandals that affect the global economy. I started falling asleep so I headed to bed and we paused the episode for another night.
Question of the day: What did you have for dinner last night?
