Hey All –
I am surprised to say that my Monday was a good day! Usually I do not like Mondays much at all. But today was different for some reason. Even though I had a really hard time getting to sleep last night, I felt awake when I woke up this morning at 5:40 (meh). I hopped out of bed, got all showered up (I think my new natural lavender products help me love my showers more these days!) and got ready to start my day. Perhaps it was the iced coffee that I had on my commute this morning. Or maybe it was the piece of whole wheat toast with peanut butter that I snacked on while getting my bags together and finished up in the car. Who knows.
Yes, I had a piece of toast and pb at 6:20 this morning. Usually that is super early for me to start eating. But since my body seemed to like it, I might stick to it for a couple of days. At 10 o’clock I enjoyed a vanilla flavored Chobani and did not need to have lunch until 1 o’clock this afternoon.
Before I went on my lunch walk, I had a few grapes (and a few more than are pictured here!)
I walked about 2 1/2 miles with my colleagues at lunch. It was about 70 degrees and pretty breezy. But what a beautiful day! I love blue skies with a few fair weather clouds. Picture perfect. After the walk I had a fantastic chicken fajita – mom’s left overs from Sunday night’s post play dinner. It was amazing (a lot better than the turkey sandwich I had planned on taking for lunch!)
I had really thought that I would either go for another walk, run or gym workout after getting home. What did I do instead? I went out onto our deck and got back to reading Lunch in Paris. I love this book. After this, I will get back to reading it! I cannot wait to try some of the recipes in here!
For dinner mom made ribs. I do not usually eat ribs, but I did tonight because they looked and smelled pretty amazing! I made a salad and warmed up some potatoes to go with the meaty – meat:
Pretty good dinner!
Alright – back to the book. See y’all in a bit. Hope you all had a great Monday.
