Evening lovelies! I was lucky enough to have today off (thank you Patriots Day/Marathon Monday!). Unfortunately, I was not in the city for the marathon. The amount of traffic going into the city today is tremendous and it would have been, unfortunately, a huge hassle – so I decided to stay at home one more day. No complaints here – although of course it would have been fabulous to cheer on all of those runners.
I cannot imagine running 26.2 miles.. I, personally, know 3 people who ran and completed the race. Pretty amazing stuff.
Let’s back-track a little bit. Last night – I hung out with my mom and we made cookies. Dark chocolate chunk cookies – if we’re going to be precise. They are ridiculously good and are definitely the type of cookie that warrants an ice cold glass of milk on the side. They are a definite indulgence, but so worth it!
I spent most of the afternoon out and about – doing some errands and taking advantage of the tax free-ness of New Hampshire. First stop was Starbucks – I got myself a little latte and a big ole bottle of sugar-free hazelnut syrup for my coffee. It was so much cheaper than I thought it would be, and I know, I know…sucralose…moderation will be key with this.
I picked up some new mugs from the Christmas Tree Shop! No picture right now…but you will see them soon enough! haha
Going back to the weights…yep..I’m starting a more “formal” workout routine (not 100% on what it will be yet…I’ll let you know when I get it totally figured out)…I guess you could call it. I hope the fact that right after the semester ends I will have a couple weeks to make a habit of it and just have it be a natural part of my day.
The way I look at it is, this summer I will be at my job most of the time…and most of that time will be at a desk, which is a lot less active than I am now…put other things into the equation like business lunches, snacks people bring to work, etc…and it’s probably a good idea to make sure that activity is built into my day.
Voila. Nothing revolutionary, but a new routine for me.
Dinner tonight – my mom and I whipped up a foccacia recipe that turned out to be a little bit more like beer bread than like foccacia. That’s okay though – beer bread is delicious (and less oily)…especially studded with herbs and sun-dried tomatoes!
The bread went with a dinner of left over chicken saltimbocca with prosciutto, mushrooms and marsala wine and a cranberry and walnut salad. The chicken isn’t the most appetizing looking (though SO, SO good). Therefore, the salad will speak for the meal. haha
I hope everyone’s week has gotten off to a good start!!
