Hello and happy Tuesday! How was your Monday? I don’t know about you but my building had some pretty happy people in it after the Eagles win. One guy went to the store at 5 am to buy a shirt and hat. That is dedication! I don’t think I could do that but to each their own. Have a great day 🙂
Surprisingly I didn’t wake up too late considering I went to bed at midnight. But a text from Alex saying “I’m shocked we got out of bed and moving” just goes to show that we were both slow moving yesterday. We still had bagels from Sunday morning (thank you buy 6 get 2 free coupon) so breakfast was easy. I had an Asiago cheese bagel with cream cheese before heading out the door.
I started my new book at work. The Other Typist by Suzanne Rindell was something I stumbled upon at the library. It’s set in the 1920s and follows a girl, Rose, who is the typist at a New York City police precinct. A new typist, Odalie, comes in and sucks Rose into her world. It sounds like a really intriguing book and I’m curious to see how it ends since the reviews are mixed about it.
After work, I got in a tough run. It was a lactate threshold that pushed me. I can’t complain with the junk I ate on Sunday night though. When I got back, I completed some bodyweight exercises. Something tells me, my legs will be sore since every inch of my leg was extremely tired. Hi it’s Maureen check in on Tuesday before this goes live and I can say that yes I have some soreness in my legs and maybe wearing heels to work wasn’t my best decision. I refueled with a nice and juicy orange. Overall, I got in 7 miles including the warm up and cool down at a 9:03 pace.
While the rice cooked for dinner, I prepped lunches and coffee. Then I had extra time so I organized the Tupperware we have. Please tell me we are not the only people who have containers that somehow get out of control… Once that was all done, everything was ready for dinner. Burrito bowls for Mexican Monday and they hit the spot. I had brown rice, refried beans, southwest chicken, lettuce, cheese, salsa, avocado and a tiny dollop of sour cream. It was so filling and delicious!
When that was done, we got comfy on the couch and watched some Netflix. We finished the episode of Dirty Money that we started over the weekend. If you like short documentaries then I really recommend this show! We watched an episode about a pharmaceutical company and man did it really open my eyes to things. Naturally I dozed off on the couch and when I woke up, I brushed my teeth before crawling into bed.
Question of the day: Is Mexican Monday a thing?
