Afternoon! My plans for today involved being an awesome writer and banging out a draft of my article, but the reality has been so-so. As a result, Iâ€™m canceling my afternoon bike ride. :( Boo. Itâ€™s a taper week anyway, so itâ€™s all good.
Around 11, I made a Green Monster:
You know that giant 2.5 pound bag of spinach I bought from Costco two Sundays ago? Well, about one week after I bought it, it started to go off, so I tossed it into the freezer. I made this GM with the frozen raw spinach and it tasted great! My GM contained the usual mix of 1 cup rice milk, 1/2 banana, and 2 cups raw spinach.
Lunch was stolen. 🙂
I made this (plus other sides) for the Husband for his dinner last night, but he ate something else. I stole it out of the fridge for lunch â€“ you snooze, you lose!
The main attraction was a 3-egg omelet with cheese and spinach.
Plus, a small sweet potato:
For dessert, I had 1/2 a Cadbury Cream Egg. I only ate half because Iâ€™m saving the other half for the Husband (to make up for his stolen lunch!):
One FUN thing Iâ€™m doing this afternoon is going to the Husbandâ€™s college to get acupuncture on my bicep. The turning point for my arm was yesterday, and I feel great today! Iâ€™m glad I donâ€™t have to worry about my arm giving out on the swim any longer, and Iâ€™m excited to go to the clinic to get acupuncture (and more?!) done.

My 5 things:

- The â€œsomething borrowedâ€ on my wedding day was a piece of my grandmotherâ€™s veil, which was tucked into my bra.
