Sunday, April 12th, 2009 (Relaxing day!)

For those of you who celebrate Easter, Happy Easter to you!!  Today has been an amazingly relaxing day.  Despite time flying by, which always happens on Sundays, it was a good day.

I slept in a little this morning and got up around 7:30ish.  I took care of Rocks and noticed how amazing it was outside.  I debated about going for a run or not and decided that my mental health needed a run this morning.  I took it easy and slow.  I only did 2.5 miles this morning partly because I would be taking a long walk with Rocky later and partly because I didn’t wear anything on my head and my ears got cold.  Doh!  I keep forgetting about the new headband I bought which covers just my ears to keep them warm.  I considered making it 3.5 miles but my ears were too cold.

I wasn’t really in the mood for CS and I was only out for 28 minutes, hardly requiring a recovery drink, so I skipped it.  I went straight into stretching and then changed out of running clothes into my robe.  Mmm heaven.  Then it was time for coffee!

I also had a bit of yogurt and granola (Bear Naked fruit and nut) with my coffee.  I did office stuff and then started looking at cabins to rent in the Hocking Hills area.  Scott and I very much need an escape however most cabins are now “in season” putting them out of our price range.  I’ll have to see what I can find that is seculded, has covered hot tub, and allows pets (and pets over 45lbs.  Hate pet weight limits!  So dumb.).  *sigh*  It was nice to have that moment of planning a mini vacation.

Scott got up and I had another mug of coffee.  Finally after I was done puttering around on the computer, I headed up to take a shower and become Weekend Presentable.  Then I made us some lunch.  I thought about a proper Sunday breakfast but wasn’t really in the mood for pancakes or things like that.  I noticed a lot of bloggers going out to bistros over the weekend for lunch and brunch which made me finally decide on a bistro style lunch for us.

We had salmon mixed with chive cream cheese on top of pumpernickle.  A side salad of mixed greens, raisins, sunflower and pumpkin seeds with the rest of the tomato viniagrette dressing.  And a smoothie!

  • 2 C unsweetened cranberry juice
  • 1 C of OJ
  • Bunch of kale
  • 1 banana
  • Frozen blueberries
  • Frozen raspberries
  • Blackberries

Berrytastic!  Plus it was an amazing color.  Lunch was so good and totally filling.  Afterwards we headed over to a local park for a walk with Rocks.  Then it was back home for more relaxing.  We relaxed for a bit and Scott took a nap. While he was napping I talked with my mom for a little while.  Once Scott got up it was time to decide what we were doing about dinner.  He was hungry and I was only munchie.  While we discussed things I had a small palmful of rice snacks and three pistachios.  Finally it was decided to make snackies and have things to pick from.

Healthy plate.

  • Sausage slices (kielbasa, spinach and feta chick sausage)
The whole party

All together, along with a glass of wine.  Mmmmm!  I mostly ate from the healthy plate. :D  I had most of the apple, a few small nibs of cheddar, all the cucmber, and most of the carrot.  I think maybe 3 apricots.  From the junk plate I had 1/2 an eggroll, 1.5 moz sticks, and what probably amounts to half a sausage.  I know we’re also having dessert tonight so I’m saving some room.

  1. Bear Naked fruit and nut is my favorite of their granolas, in fact, I think I’m having it for breakfast in the morning :)

    I love your snack plates!!
