Hello friends! How was your Monday? It is slowly warming up here in New Jersey and I really hope it stays warm but who knows what will happen. Hopefully the weather is nice and warm by you though! Have a great day 🙂
I woke up so tired yesterday! I kept snoozing my alarm and woke up late. Luckily I planned on going into work late anyways since I had a meeting that went over my normal hours anyways so it was all good. Guys I have to tell you that I will no longer be eating oatmeal muffins this week. I thought I had enough for another batch last week and I was short oats. About 2 cups short so oops! Have no fear, I opted for peanut butter and chia seed toast instead. If you’ve never had chia seeds on pb toast then you need to try it. So good!
Alex needs to be in the city all week so I’ve got midday Bailey duty. Not that I’ll complain though! Lunches have looked pretty different since getting Bailey. I’ve gotten mid day puppy cuddles and she got to run around for a while. It’s a win for everyone!
After work I got to run for the first time in a week! Granted no one was forcing me to not run and it was a personal choice since I felt like it was better to take an extra rest day or 6 instead of push myself. My workout consisted of a mile warm up, 5 x 3 min hard with 2 minute recovery jog and a mile cool down. It was the final workout of my half marathon training and it was the perfect boost before the race. 4.74 miles total for the day at 9:25 average pace.
For dinner we had spicy crockpot chicken and used it to make burrito bowls. Yes we did have Mexican for lunch Saturday but you can never have enough Mexican food in our opinion. My bowl included brown rice, chicken, black beans, cheese, lettuce, a little sour cream and a big scoop of salsa. Such an easy dinner for a weeknight.
To end our night, we finished the rest of Good Morning, Vietnam. I don’t know why it took me so long to watch this movie but it’s funny. One of Robin Williams best in my opinion. When it was over, I read a few more chapters in The Fountainhead. Once my eyes were getting heavy and I found myself rereading sentences to get it, I decided to head off to bed.
Question of the day: What was your workout yesterday?
