Morning, friends! Last night, I stayed up really late (boo!) but I was working (yay!). And today, I have an almost wide-open schedule, which will be good for writing. A writing Caitlin is a happy Caitlin!
Hereâ€™s a time-saver tip! If you really need a grain but donâ€™t have time to cook brown rice, just stop by a Chinese restaurant and buy a box â€“ itâ€™s usually under $2.
We pulled a tupperware of steamed veggies out of our fridge, sautÃ©ed some faux-meat Italian sausage, and combined it all together for an easy, healthy dinner.
At some point, I also inhaled a bowl of cereal.
Fast-forward to this morning: I woke up HELLUA sore from strength-training. My arms hurt! My legs hurt! My abs hurt! Itâ€™s a sign that I should probably lift more. Iâ€™m going to try to stick with it.
Despite my creaky bod, I got up, slammed a glass of OJ, and ranâ€¦ it felt great. Itâ€™s so hard for me to exercise right away in the morning, but it always feels SO worth it when itâ€™s over with. I did 3 miles in about 35 minutes.
The Husband had breakfast on the
table coffee table when I arrived!
Bagel Thins, eggs with Swiss cheese and peppers, and strawberries.
My Favorite Advice Columnists
Just something random and fun (so you can waste time at your desk this morning!)â€¦
I LOVE, LOVE, LOOVVVVVVVE advice columnists. Even as a kid, I read Dear Abby whenever I was at my grandpaâ€™s house and had access to the â€˜goodâ€™ (i.e. lots of cartoons) newspaper. Iâ€™ve been reading some of these columnists for years, and they just seem to get better over time!
Savage Love (adult-only)
True confession: Once, I wrote to an advice columnist. It was to Since You Asked. He never answered my question! Bah.
