Hello! That’s for stopping by today everyone. I love that you chose to spend a few minutes of your day with me. Have a great day 🙂
Monday started off dark and rainy. It was the type of morning where getting out of bed is infinitely harder because of the weather. Couple that with the fact that my legs were hurting made for a slow morning. Once I was out of bed it went okay. I noticed that as long ad I was continually moving the soreness wasn’t that bad which I’ll consider a win. I had my normal breakfast of scrambled eggs and an oatmeal muffin before heading out the door to work.
Alex worked from home so I didn’t have to go home at lunch to let Bailey out. For the first time in what feels like months, I was able to read. I pulled out the monster of a book called The Fountainhead. It’s a monster because it’s incredibly thick and over 500 pages long. This book is taking me quite a while to read since I don’t have as much time to read anymore. That’s okay though! It’s just the stage of life I’m in right now.
When I got home from work, I saw Alex and Bailey outside and walked with them for a bit. I headed back in and pulled out everything I would need to make banana chocolate chip muffins. Alex requested I make these when his parents gave us some chocolate bunnies on Easter. I chopped up the milk chocolate one and used that as the chocolate chip. Since it was a recipe I got from Alex’s mom, I may have snuck a taste (or seven) of the batter and it was so tasty. Baking because I wanted to felt AMAZING and it was a fun treat for a Monday afternoon.
For dinner, I got oh so fancy and heated up leftover pizza to have. We decided to order more pizza on Sunday than we would actually eat so that we could have the leftovers for dinner last night. I love when we do that haha. It makes dinner 1) so easy 2) so tasty and 3) who doesn’t love pizza? After eating, Alex and I watched an episode of Billions and had a muffin for dessert. They were absolutely delicious! We hung out a bit before heading to bed.
Question of the day: What are you favorite ways to treat yourself after a tough race?
