Hi everyone! How was your Tuesday? Mine went just great! Much better than my Monday went. Hopefully today goes just as well, if not better 😀
Although I fell asleep at 9:30 last night
after consuming two heft sized glasses of wine because I was so tired, I decided to sleep right on through my morning work out. I’ve learned to never, ever feel guilty about this, by the way. Unless I’m going to be getting 8 hours of sleep or more (a.k.a. the weekend,) I honestly don’t feel an ounce of guilt for choosing sleep over a work out.
This is because A. I needs my sleep. Sleep is very important. and B. I usually will just do my workout after work.
Work was work, but went by fast, and I had an ammaaazing bowl of oats to start it off with:
Yum-topia. It had oats, Bees Knees Peanut Butter, blueberries, and half a smashed banana.
Today I had planned on going to the gym and cranking out 3.5 miles, but instead, I took advantage of this amaaazing weather we’re having, and jumped on the trail after work. (See? I told ya I usually make up for a.m. skips with p.m. workouts!) After running 3.7 miles out in the sunny, cool weather I felt great! Oh, one con though – I swallowed a bug in mile one. Ew. Not cool.
Anyway, here’s my other stats:
Like last time, I was in the company of many other runners on this run. So much fun 😀
When I got home, I made taco salads for Shane and me. This turned out to be a hit!!
All I did was grill some green bell peppers, black beans, Spanish rice, and chili peppers on the stove. Then I added some chili powder, garlic salt, and cumin. In a bowl, I layered shredded romaine lettuce, Garden of Eaten’s Hot Blue chips, my stove mixture, and repeated once. Finally, I topped the salad with some homemade guac, sour cream, and salsa.
For Shane’s meal, I added browned hamburger. He was thoroughly satisfied! I told him, “It was so easy too!” to which he replied, “so that means we’ll be having it again soon, awesome!” haha Dishes that are difficult don’t make a repeat appearance too often in this household. I just don’t have the time 😛
After digesting my Mexican Fiesta and taking the pupster for a walk, I settled down with these three things:
hehe. I have got to finish this book. It’s taking me for-ev-er!!! I can usually bust through a book in a week. I blame my iPhone. Honestly, I do. Two other friends have loaned me books now, and I want to get started on them so I can give them back! It’s not like the book sucks or anything, I’m just having a hard time finding time to read it.
After about an hour of reading, I settled in on the couch with the hubski, and enjoyed a small bowl of Annie’s Homegrown Bunny Grahams.
