Hey all! I hope you’re having a good Monday, even if you’re not lucky enough to be off work/school like I am.
I spent my Monday morning by crawling out of bed at 6 a.m. and going running…which I ended up kind of regretting but I did anyways. I ate a banana and a gummy worm and went out for a 2.5-mile hard run, and hard it was! It’s way more hilly at home than it is in Columbia, and I was feeling it! After 2.5 I walked a bit and then jogged in a cool down back home.
Once I got back, I pour some of this homemade sports drink! It was pretty good:
After this, I made a quick breakfast:
Whipped banana oats (on the STOVETOP) topped with peanut butter and jelly, with a side of coffee.
After breakfast, I got ready to go to the movies with Allen. We went to see Skyfall at 10:10 a.m.
I am a HUGE fan of early movies because they are usually cheaper and pretty empty, which means you can sit wherever you want and put your feet on the seat in front of you.
I brought some snacks to the movies:
The movie was great, and kept my interest the whole time, which is really rare for James Bond movies. After the movie Allen and I went home and made some lunch.
I had leftovers from last night’s dinner: beans and greens soup, bread (one for dipping and one with butter) and club soda with lemon. It hit the spot!
After lunch, Allen and I watched a bit of The West Wing and then went to the mall to take my computer to the Apple store. Last week it said “service battery” and wouldn’t hold a charge but of course it was on its best behavior at the Apple store and performed quite well. *sigh* at least I didn’t have to replace it.
Dinner tonight was salmon cakes, cheesy couscous and salad.
Played around in the kitchen while I waited for dinner to cook:
And then they cakes were done!
