Hi guys! Today has been a whirlwind because I have been doing tons of things all over the house. I am just now sitting down for a second to take a breath (4:30pm). Ever have days where you wish you didn’t have plans so that you could keep going with what you’re currently doing? Yeah, I’m having one of those days today. Wish I didn’t have to stop! Finish time on this post is 6:20pm. Zoinks!
Last night while Scott and I watched a game, there was a snack! New for us:
Dark chocolate frozen yogurt. Oh man it was so good. I was going to eat it plain and then Scott said, “Hey, I bet some of those dark chocolate chips would be good with it.”
“Oh I think you’re right!”
And so I added some to my bowl and then I remembered why I don’t like chocolate chips in ice cream or frozen yogurt. The chocolate chips get cold and thus turning a bit too hard for my liking. Ick. I ate them anyway though. This was the perfect treat! And I was in bed last night by 10pm!! Crazy!
I got up early this morning intending on a run, however when I took Rocky out this morning, it was so cold. The damp cold that goes right through to your bones. Ewwww I so did not want to run in that. I could easily run tomorrow, I told myself. I have so many things to do today, it would be no big deal if I stayed in.
I went back and forth, no lie, for an hour and a 1/2. I looked at yoga alternatives. I looked but couldn’t find the OnDemand station on my TV. I know but it’s DirectTV and somethings they are very strange with their navigation stuff. Anyway, I was seriously talking myself out of it. What got me out the door finally was that I didn’t know if running + conditioning class tomorrow would be too much for my knee/IT band. So I ran today.
Nothing major, just 3.5 miles. I have to build my mileage back up and no sprints or pickups at all. And yes it was miserable outside. And yes I was happy that I ran. I stretched and already knocked out my PT exercises for the day before my run, which meant that after stretching I could shower. And then put on my glorious robe. Ahhhh bliss.
I started breakfast because I was starving! Oatbran, hooray!
I added a pinch of brown sugar to the oatbran this morning because my bananas are a bit under ripe still. I made berry oatbran with raspberries and blueberries. So good. I also mixed in a bit of vanilla almond butter. I decided to treat myself. The coffee was only so-so and I’m wondering if I put myself on coffee overload. I’ll have to see how tomorrow goes.
After breakfast I started busting around the house cleaning. I cleaned all the windows in the house, including the sills and the inside part. I did not clean the glass that faces outside, that is saved for another day. After the windows it was time for lunch which was easy, easy.
- Mixed greens
- Sunflower and pumpkin seeds
- Broccoli sprouts
Dressed with a bottled Caesar dressing I bought at WF. It’s made with yogurt and the nutritionals aren’t so bad. An orange in the middle and some sweet and sour vegan nuggets. Mmmmm!
After lunch, I cleaned and rearranged our TV room. I needed a change! That room is such a pain in my ass because it’s hard to arrange furniture around it. I won’t go into details partly because I’m tired and partly because I don’t think my explanation would make any sense! Once the finishing touches are made, I’ll take a picture.
There was a break in the rain where it was only mist, so I ran Rocky out for a quick walk. When we got back, I pulled some leftovers out of the freezer to heat up and sat down to start this post.
I was famished by the time we sat down to eat.
Veggie chili on this rainy gross day. And I also made some cornbread! YUM! Which I took out of the oven when it was still slightly undercooked giving it a nice dense texture which tasted amazing. And I used the ground flax + water trick and it worked perfectly. Hooray!
Now guys I am wiped out. I’m going to read for a bit before heading to SF class tonight. Hopefully I won’t fall asleep during it!
