Last night I had a snack of yogurt and dried cranberries as I watched the Penguins game. I was so tired from my garage day that I fell asleep while they were up. Apparently they fell asleep too since they lost 😦
This morning I was up and ready to get my day started. I made a big bowl of oatmeal, a veggie scramble, chicken sausage and a chai latte. To my oatmeal I added a dollop of yogurt and a scoop of PB2 (as well as vanilla and cinnamon) for a little extra creaminess and flavor/protein. Yumm. I worked on my puzzles and talked to my mom before we decided to go to Durham to rejoin the YMCA. We have been wanted to do it for a while and we finally did it since the weather was gross today. Pouring rain, thunder, tornado warnings… not good outdoor running weather. I did see some brave people out running though. I guess the warmer temperature made up for the rain. Now I can finally take some yoga classes! On the way to town I had a larabar for my snack. I did a 2.5 mile run on the treadmill + .5 mile walk as a cool down. It felt great and I worked up a nice sweat being indoors!
My recovery was my usual chocolate milk and I drank it before we stopped at Harris Teeter to get our groceries for the week. They had some KILLER deals that we took advantage of. Buy 2 get 3 free Progresso Soups? 10 for 10 Chobani Greek Yogurts? Yes, please.
When we got home we each made our own lunch. I tried to use up random leftovers in the fridge so I heated up another chicken sausage and made a mix of quinoa, black beans, carrots, green pepper, celery and a garlic and herb laughing cow wedge. I also had some grapes and half an apple. It was a decent combo.
After lunch we got cleaned up and then my mom and I went and picked up a few little gifts for Amber before stopping to see her brand new baby boy, Asher! He was born yesterday and he looked great! Congrats again Amber and Dave!
Back at home the rain finally let up and the sky was beautiful. For my next snack I had an almond butter sandwich while I played sudoku. Then I worked a little on the slouchy beanie I am making! The brown section I knit and the white section is a crochet puff stitch. The green will be the same as the white. (Bad picture, sorry)
Now I am off to get started on our dinner! I am making egg roll chicken chimis again!
