Get ready to fake it until you make it! At least that’s what I’m doing today. Since Mondays get such a bad rap, I’m forcing cheerfulness upon myself. One of the ways I do this, is to count what I’m thankful for today:
- my coffee, as always
- that even though I’ve been slacking in the going-to-church dept., God still lets me and loves when I pray
- my staycation this past weekend, which is allowing me to be extra relaxed today
- almost having the laundry done!
One thing I’m looking forward to is having dinner with my parents tonight! I haven’t seen them in a couple weeks (which is a long time for me!) and it will be nice to hang out.
Well, I guess you could call it purposeful slackage. I decided to skip my workout this morning. Partly because I’m so sore, and partly because it was an elliptical workout, and I have an easier time skipping non-run workouts. No biggie 🙂 Tomorrow’s a run day, so I’ll get it then 😉
Last night’s dinner turned out to be AWESOME! I made stuffed peppers and butternut squash. Since I didn’t post play-by-play of how I made them, I’ll just post the couple pictures that I did take.
I stuffed the peppers with brown rice, lean ground beef (was going to do mine with turkey, but got lazy,) tomato sauce, jalapeno peppers, and onion. When they only had 15 minutes in the oven to go, I topped them each with habenero cheese.
The squash was good, too, but didn’t turn out like spaghetti. I think I either roasted it too long or added too much water, but it just didn’t want to make noodles when I scraped it with a fork. Noodle form or not, it still turned out yummy! 😀
Question: What’s one way you pull yourself out of a foul mood?
