It was a gorgeous Sunday, but it was also one of those days. Know what I mean?
It started off quite well. I slept in and recovered from my trail race quite nicely. My muscles feel great; however, the ankle I rolled around Mile 4 is giving me trouble! I’m bikeable and walkable, but probably not runable. Maybe tomorrow?
Breakfast was delicious, too!
I had banana oatmeal:
- 1/2 cup oatmeal
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/2 banana
- Toppings: strawberries, cinnamon, peanuts, brown sugar
I got my work on, and then made lunch.
Lunch was really, really delicious and something new!
I boiled 1/4 cup of quinoa and then added the cooked grain to a wok with boiled carrots, raw spinach, mushrooms, garlic, peanuts, and olive oil. Once the veggies were soft, I plated it and topped it with a hard boiled egg.
I worked some more (I seriously worked and wrote all day!) and then decided it was time for a snack. I was craving a Cherry Chocolate Bomb (1 cup almond milk, 1/2 a banana, 15 frozen cherries, Nesquik, and 2 cups raw spinach). Unfortunately, while making the smoothie, I stuck my hand into the blender (why, I don’t know), and sliced open my finger.
But I still finished the smoothie:
And ate a Clif Bar (this is my favorite flavor!):
And then I wrote SOME MORE! I was having major writer’s block and getting super frustrated. The Husband suggested we take the dogs to the park, and I practically leapt out of the chair.
He also suggested we bring wine, which was pretty awesome.
I had two glasses.
Unfortunately, on the way home, we realized we had a flat tire. Ugh!!! One thing after another today. We had to break a dollar to get quarters for the machine, so I had a lollipop and supervised the Husband.
I hope it’s not flat-flat and just low on air!
Thankfully, dinner was stellar. :) Just a wholesome plate of roasted veggies (sweet potato, yellow potato, asparagus, carrots) and baked beans.
Whew! Here’s to hoping tomorrow goes a little more smoothly. Did you have a nice day? I sure hope so! 🙂
