First things first: Is this not the creepiest of all creepy rest stop bathrooms?
The creepiness was compounded by the fact that the door didnâ€™t lock. And to think â€“ I was hoping they had a changing table in there! Oh lord.
Well, that may be the grossest picture that Iâ€™ve ever opened a blog post with. Hereâ€™s a cute baby picture to take away the sting.
Better now? I hope so.
Our day was filled withâ€¦ DRIVING. Driving! And more driving. Then, we arrived at the house and took turns entertaining the baby while the other tried to plow through some work. It was a fun Monday, indeed â€“ coming home from vacation is always such a downer.
Anyway, I tried to eat healthy on the road. Lunch was a mish-mash of leftovers stolen from my momâ€™s fridge and gas station finds.
Upon arriving in Charlotte, I had one of Anne Pâ€™s bars and a big glass of soy milk. And eventually, I made us dinner. This seems to be my go-to mid-week meal: Cast iron tofu, brown rice, and stir-fried veggies â€“ itâ€™s so fast. Iâ€™ve been cooking everything with coconut oil instead of olive oil and itâ€™s much more tasty. Yum.
My grand plans for this evening include putting together an IKEA side table. Normally, I love IKEA assembly (it appeals to the Type A in me), but Iâ€™ve been putting this one off for weeks.
Oh â€“ and hereâ€™s the weekly workout round-up! Posting these round-ups have really helped me stay motivated, so thanks for virtually holding me accountable.
Monday â€“ Rest
Tuesday â€“ 1,000 yard swim
Wednesday â€“ Couch to 5K workout
Thursday â€“ 1,000 yard swim
Friday â€“ 2.0 mile walk
Saturday â€“ Rest
Sunday â€“ Couch to 5K workout in hilly Tennessee (whew!)
With some at-home strength training thrown in nearly every day.
PS â€“ Iâ€™m aware there are still issues with the blog if youâ€™re viewing it on Internet Explorer. Still trying to resolve it but it may be a while. The blog is loading fine on other browsers (Chrome, Firefox) if you want to view the blog in another way in the meantime. Iâ€™m very sorry! UPDATE: Should be resolved now!
