Happy hump day! Half way through the week already. How has your week been thus far? I hope it’s been a good one. Have a great day 🙂
Yesterday started a little earlier than normal when Alex’s alarm went at 4:45. He had a work event in the city so he had to catch a 6:15 am train. I got to sleep in a little later until my normal alarm went off. Once I was ready I headed to the kitchen. I grabbed some waffles out of the freezer and popped them into the toaster oven to warm up. When they were done, I topped it with some peanut butter and chia seeds for breakfast.
I ran out at lunch to pick something up at the tailor’s. That only left me with about 30 minutes of reading once I got back while I ate. I know, 30 minutes is better than nothing but I love that hour in my day to take a long break from work and just escape into my book. “Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe” just got to a really good part and all I wanted to do was spend the rest of my day reading.
Once I was changed, I heading out on my 4 mile run. This time it was actually at a recovery pace which was awesome! I feel like these runs always feel the hardest for whatever reason but I know they are important so I try not to push the pace. Key word being try 😉 When I got home, I stretched and foam rolled before taking a quick shower.
Alex got home shortly after I got back and we were both pretty hungry. We got out leftovers from the fridge and heated a bunch up for our dinner. I put potatoes, shredded chicken, a little cheese and hot sauce into a bowl. To get some veggies, I put roasted brussel sprouts and broccoli onto a plate.
Once dinner was cleaned up, I worked on my next DIY Christmas gift. Guys they are turning out so cute! I will have a post up next week with how to do them all so be on the look out for that if you are interested 🙂 Before fully cleaning up, I made some overnight oats so they could set in the fridge overnight.
After that was all done, I curled up on the couch while burning a candle. Alex turned on “Bad Santa” which I had never seen before. I don’t really recommend it. It was pretty bad in my opinion and we didn’t even finish it.
Question of the day: What was your workout yesterday?
