I took a work â€˜breakâ€™ to go to IKEA. I use the term â€˜breakâ€™ loosely because, while I love assembling IKEA furniture, I hate actually going to IKEA. Itâ€™s so overwhelming. And I always end up spending half the day there â€“ itâ€™s a vortex of Swedish goodies.
We bought a new bed for the guest room. My BFF Lauren is coming to visit me (from Singapore!) this weekend and, since our air mattress went kaput, needs a place to sleep. One day, this will be Henryâ€™s big boy bed. So now you know what Iâ€™ll be doing tonightâ€¦ building a bed.
And eating chocolate. For some reason, I was possessed at the check-out counter and grabbed five IKEA chocolate bars. These are the best.
Now I must hide them from myself.
Lunch was leftovers from last night â€“ quinoa, steamed cabbage, onions, and asparagus, and cast iron tofu. With a glob of Earth Balance.
Now that my IKEA break is over, Iâ€™m attempting to get some work done, and then Iâ€™m going for a run. My energy is kind of waning, so Iâ€™m trying to build this workout up in my mindâ€¦ this is truly the key to staying motivated for evening workouts. I tell myself all day long that my run will be awesome and that Iâ€™ll feel SO good when itâ€™s over. And when I catch myself â€˜checking outâ€™ (you knowâ€¦ â€œOh, maybe Iâ€™ll just do it tomorrowâ€¦â€), I nip that thinking in the bud. TONIGHT! Not tomorrow!
Hold me to it â€“ 3 miles or bust.
