Happy Wednesday :) My workday yesterday was crazy busy, but I love days like that. Suddenly it goes from 9am to 5pm and it's time to go home, and so much has happened in between. It's a good feeling. Also makes me want to crawl into bed at 8:30pm needing sleep!
Running - This morning I got out of bed nice and early and got in just over a 3 mile run. It's been almost two weeks without running (being kind to my knees) and wow did it feel amazing to be out there. I had on way too many layers for 45 degrees, but I really didn't care. It was my first run in our new neighborhood and I'M SO EXCITED. There are so many neighborhoods that intertwine and trails in between - it's a runner's dream. I'm hoping for another shorter run this week and a long one over the weekend.
Quick Meals - I made a big batch of lentil stew over the weekend and my husband and I have had that for dinner the last 3 nights. We add in fresh grains and greens to it each night as a sprinkle of flax oil and it's SO GOOD. It also makes dinner time super simple. I'm thinking about a tofu dish for tonight. I also had a simple meal at lunch yesterday at work - rice, black beans, salsa, guacamole! It's fantastically delicious and keeps me full.
Relaxation - Jax is clearly getting his rest in this week. I see him stretched out on the bed like that each morning as I'm leaving. Could he look any more comfortable? This morning he came and sat by me for a bit while I wrote this post (even though there are still clothes decorating the floor, he didn't seem to mind).
Homemade lattes - I've made 3 this week. Aren't you proud? It's rewarding really. I had those coconut chips with the latte. Talk about a sweet morning snack.
Ok, that's my week so far and now I need to get ready for work!
How's your week going?
