Mondays always come as a bit of a shock because my day starts at 4:30am when my alarm blares at me. After some cuddling time with Simba, I have to rush to get everything together and get to work at 5am.
This weekend was a good one. After work on Friday, I swam 40 laps, about 1.1 miles. I’m just getting back into swimming and so far, I’m loving it. I have to be super careful because I dye my hair blonde, but my precautions have thus far been successful. I can already feel the benefits swimming has had on my running, which was evident on Saturday morning. Friday night, I had dinner with my family and then was happy to fall into bed.
Saturday morning kicked off with a homemade breakfast sandwich, a strength circuit, and a solid 3.1 mile run.
Later that afternoon, I got my haircut, which always feels amazing! I really need to stick to the stylist when it comes to dyeing my hair. It’s too much of a hassle for an ok turnout when I do it on my own. Not to mention I left it on for too long last time and had a strip of silvery purple for a few days…
That night, I saw Black Panther with my friend Stephanie. It was excellent! I was anxious the entire time, but it was all for good.
I slept in a bit on Sunday (for me that’s now 8:30am!) and woke up in time to start a big breakfast. Please appreciate the Mickey waffle.
After finishing some necessary chores, I fit in a solid workout at the gym, including another mile run. For lunch, I made homemade beef and broccoli (with cauliflower) and brown rice. So good! The marinade included 2 tablespoons bbq sauce, 2 tablespoons soy sauce, and some garlic. I made enough for two servings and have leftover meat.
I also roasted some chickpeas to have for the week, including my dinner, this kale Caesar salad with shrimp.
The rest of Sunday was spent writing, working on the updated blog, and relaxing with the cutest cat around.
Have a great day, everyone!
