It wouldn’t be a normal blogpost if I didn’t inform you on today’s weather. I’m going to be blessed with a day of sunshine and a high of 77 degrees. I’m thinking a bike ride is in my near future…
Kona slept till five today (WIN) and we headed out for a little stroll around the block. We came back in and watched the news and cuddled up with some coffee. He is a huge cuddle bug in the morning. He reminds me so much of Mr. Grumples and Grumps is loving his time with my parents. They keep sending me photos of him doing silly things.
I just made another cup of coffee to enjoy while the sun comes up.
It’s been a day since I’ve blogged, so let’s catch up!
These past couple of days have been very relaxing. I’ve been doing a lot of studying and running.
Around 11, I headed down to the gym to run. I was going to run outside, but I didn’t feel like facing all the stoplights and I didn’t want to drive to a trail. I did three miles doing intervals and finished in 29:15. Afterwords, I spent twenty minutes stretching.
After my workouts, I grabbed some citrus orange tea and relaxed on the rooftop for a half hour.
I made lunch when I got back. I had a salad with vegan burger crumbles, avocado, spring mix lettuce, tomatoes, croutons, and garlic balsamic dressing on the side.
Kona and I relaxed the rest of the afternoon and he helped me with my homework by changing the pages on my book. He loves that game…
Later on, we headed out for another stroll. We like to sit at the little park and people watch. I was pumped to wear my new jeans. American Eagle had buy one get one half and I definitely took advantage of it. Now that winter is approaching, I need new jeans! I’ve been working out a lot lately, so my jeans weren’t fitting me as well. I’m obsessed with the stretch skinny jeans because they are so comfortable. I also bought a lighter pair. I don’t care how old I get, AE jeans will always be my favorite.
OH, and part of my halloween costume came yesterday. So excited!
For dinner, I had veggie fries, a cup of butternut squash soup, and a Suja lemon love. That stuff is spicy! For dessert, I baked half a brownie quest bar and topped it with walnuts. That was definitely a delicious treat.
I turned on Nashville, and then fell asleep through half of it. I can’t stand how late that show comes on. I also don’t like how long I have to wait between seasons.
Karlee had Tuesday off, so I hurried up and did three miles on the treadmill followed by weights.
Karlee and I headed to Pentagon city to shop for dresses. Of course the only thing I left with was a green juice and two new pairs of jeans. Have you ever NOT been in the mood to shop? That was me on Tuesday. I think I was just “hangry” and tired. I still need to go find some dresses.
That was my tired and “hangry” face, but then I had dinner and was fine. 😉 It happens to the best of us.
For dinner, I had a salad with romaine lettuce, grilled chicken, parmesan cheese, avocado, croutons, and red onion tossed in a garlic vinaigrette. I went grocery shopping for salad ingredients and that is why I’ve been eating the same salad for the past three days.
Today is my rest day. I think I’m going to get my hair done and shop a little. I neeeeeed to find some dresses. See the color above? What do you think? I am going to get an inch of my hair taken off and have it died this color. I haven’t had my hair died since 2013! I’m sick of the sun damaged blonde ends and I want something different.
