Another weekend gone! Hope everyone had a fabulous weekend 🙂
Friday night I ended up going out to a bar with some friends, it was a good time but probably a poor choice because the lack of sleep I’ve been getting lately. But I can’t always be a hermit! 😉
Saturday I had to work most of the day. I manage special events at the campus pool. It was boys HS state & was fun to watch like always. Not to mention there were some fine coaches 😉
Today I had no choice but to be productive. I had planned to run right away in the morning but the weather here is super crappy. Read: rain, hail, & snow. Only in Wisconsin right?! Instead I got some of my favorite coffee going:
Maybe I should start penciling in a time to do laundry once a week cause that is a bit ridiculous. Although it was fun to see that well over half of my laundry was running clothing. :-p
Along with the laundry I got some emails sent that I needed to, tidied up the apartment, & had this for lunch.
the weather outside really called for some soup and I had to much to do to whip up my own. This was sooo good. Check it out!
Finally it was time for a 5 mile training run. I hate the treadmill was all that I could think before tackling this run. But thanks to some input on DailyMile I came up with an interval set to do which made the 5 miles a bit more tolerable. Still not a fan of the spinning belt to nowhere but it felt good to get the run in; I sure worked up a sweat. After the run I got in some lifts. The gym was relatively quiet, I guess Sunday afternoons are a good time to get the workout on!
Although the soup I had for lunch was delicious by about 6:30 pm I was rather hungry. I’ve been craving a BIG salad so I put one together. This may look big, and thats because it was. 😉
Included: romaine, chicken breast, hard boiled egg, red bell pepper, edamame (my favorite!), black beans, a small amount of asiago, & some bbq sauce & ranch. Sooo good & left me real full. Although I managed to squeeze in some chocolate milk made with silk vanilla & nesquik, yummy!
very productive day which is good cause I feel out of my funk & ready to tackle on another week full of school, half marathon training runs & work.
Topped off the relaxing part of my day watching last weeks Biggest Loser. I seriously love that show. So inspiring and I almost cried tonight! :-O
Day 15: Favorite bible verse
This following verse is beautiful & I always turn back to it when I’m having rough times.
Jeremiah 29:11 “‘For I know the plans I have for you,” declared the Lord. ‘Plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.'”
Perfection. Such a beautiful bible verse. 🙂
Day 16: My Dream House
I’ve always wanted a killer kitchen. Now that I enjoy cooking it is a necessity. I want a black & white kitchen with red accents. And all stainless steel appliances. Heavenly.
I’d also like a Wisconsin Badgers themed basement. Gotta rep my school forever! Those are the only two things I really want…should be easy enough 😉
Time to wrap up my research proposal & hit the hay. Happy Sunday everyone. 🙂
