Hello! How was your Monday? Mine was pretty good. I got in a nice run and then relaxed the rest of the night. Now I’m soaking up the last bit of sun we’ll have since we’re supposed to get hit with another nor’easter. This time they are calling for 8-12 inches… I knew the nice February weather was too good to be true! Instead of dreading the weather, let’s go back to yesterday when snow wasn’t on my radar. Have a great day 🙂
Staying up later than normal to watch part of the Oscar’s came back to bite me in the butt Monday morning. I was a little sluggish getting out of bed. Luckily hopping in the shower really woke me up before I got ready. Breakfast was some scrambled eggs and an oatmeal muffin. Am I the only one who eats the same thing for breakfast months on end? I kind of hope not. It’s just so easy to get into a morning routine with this!
At work, I was excited when I looked at the clock and saw it was 11:45. So close to when I take my lunch which meant I was close to my reading time. Come Sundown has me hooked. I enjoy that it’s mostly told in the present day but there are flashbacks to the 90s with one of the characters who was abducted. I’m dying to see what happens in it!
Once work was over, I threw on my running clothes and headed out to run. The workout was a lactate threshold with 8 x 1km repeats. Aside from accidentally lapping my watch halfway through on of the repeats, it was a great workout! There was wind so part of each interval was into the wind. It was resistance training and cardio in one. Total for the day with warm up and cool down was 7 miles plus a quick circuit when I got home.
Alex was at a work event in northern New Jersey so it was just me for dinner. I roasted two potatoes (I was hungry!) while I got everything ready for my day. Once the potatoes were done I topped it with lots of nutritional yeast, ketchup and hot sauce. I really liked the cheesy flavor from the yeast and will be adding it from now on. While I ate, I finished Chicken Little because that’s what us mature 22 year olds do with our time.
After dinner, I got comfy on the couch and typed this post up. Then I grabbed my book to read more. Let’s keep this between us but I fell asleep for a few minutes before Alex got home 😉 Once he was home, and we turned on an episode of The Office before heading to bed.
Question of the day: What’s a good movie or show to watch on nights when it’s just me? I’m in the market for a good one!
