It’s hump day! I think Wednesdays are my favorite day of the work week since it’s halfway to the weekend. Thanks for stopping by and have a great day 🙂

I was in a slump for breakfast yesterday morning. Nothing sounded that appealing when I walked downstairs for breakfast. Alex suggested cereal and since we don’t really buy cereal I figured it would be a nice change. Special K with strawberries was poured and was tasty. Typing this now makes me think that cereal is probably a good staple to have and I can’t remember the last time I even bought a box of it. Weird.
Lunch was back to the same old basic – but delicious – peanut butter sandwich. It felt good to be back to my usual lunch routine. There’s yogurt in the fridge that’s going to go bad soonish so I grabbed it to enjoy as my afternoon snack. I prefer my Oikos triple zero over this but the flavor was good!
New Jersey got some rain from Hurricane Jose yesterday. The storm is pretty farm off the coast so the rain wasn’t too bad but it was between a drizzle and light rain during my run. I really need to start wearing a hat when it rains so I’m not squinting to see. When I got home, I sat down to stretch and Annie came right up to lay down by me. Y’all it’s going to be so hard to leave them! I joke that Annie is now my bff since she seems to enjoy following me around the second I give her attention. Alex and I really have puppy fever now too so it’s only a matter of time. Also if anyone has recommendations for a supportive sports bra let me know in the comments please! I need some new ones.
After my shower, Alex and I hung out a bit before it was time for dinner. Dinner was back to the basics and we have leftovers. We’ve been using the grill so much that we had a ton of tupperware containers of leftovers in the fridge. We hate wasting food (who doesn’t) so we heated them up. I had some roasted potatoes, broccoli, and chicken. I originally heated up some pork but when I tasted it, something was off so I threw it out and that is why I have dinner on two plates.
Since the weather was pretty blah, Alex and I cuddled up on the couch to finish both “Scooby-Doo” and “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them”. During the last 45 minutes or so of Fantastic Beasts, I grabbed a small bowl of popcorn to munch on. When we finished Fantastic Beasts, Alex and I agreed that we liked it more after watching it in entirety than we did after the first part we watched the other night. We also said that maybe it was because we lowered our expectations knowing it wasn’t going to be Harry Potter good. If you have been questioning watching it, I just caution to not think it will be HP good. After our little movie marathon, we headed up to bed.
Question of the day: When you go back to the basics for meals, what does that look like for you?
