Hi, guys! Happy Tuesday!
After our weekend of home improvement projects, Mal and I spent today getting our life back in order—running errands, cleaning and organizing the house, etc. But, first, we got our WOD on at CrossFit.
Today’s WOD was a good one!
Running and air squats probably don’t sound too tough, but let me tell you, my quads were burning like crazy during this workout. Plus, I tried to keep up with a speedy gal in class, so I was really pushing myself today. I finished in 11:41.
After CrossFit, I came home and made a protein shake with vanilla fitmixer protein powder (mmm… tastes like vanilla cake), iced coffee, and almond milk.
A little while later, I made lunch, which was pretty much a repeat of last night’s Tuna & White Bean Salad, but I added some roasted red pepper hummus to the mix.
After lunch, Mal and I headed out to do some errands, which started with a quick stop at Marylou’s for an afternoon pick-me-up.
Mal apparently needed a serious pick-me-up because he ordered a large Girl Scout Cookie iced coffee (tastes like Thin Mints). I went with a small Butterfinger iced coffee, which tasted more like caramel and chocolate than a Butterfinger, but it was close enough… and incredible.
Our next stop was at AT&T to potentially cancel our cell phone service since it sucks so hard. Mal and I can’t even make calls from inside our house anymore. (We never had great service, but now it’s terrible!) We usually end up standing in the front yard while we talk on the phone. Ah, yea, this needs to change ASAP.
We also stopped at Marshall’s to buy a few accessories for our new bathroom and kitchen.
FYI: The big reveal will happen in a few days because Mal now wants to paint the bathroom. Oooh, it never ends!
After doing all of our errands, Mal and I finally went to the park so the pug could run around. We planned to go to our usual dog park, but we ended up just minutes away from Wompatuck State Park, so we went there this time.
Oh, I think that’s Murphy’s special spot!
Murphy was pug putty in Mal’s hands! Haha!
After the park, we came home and then I made myself an afternoon snack, which was vanilla Greek yogurt mixed with cashew butter and chia seeds. It was a surprisingly awesome combo.
Once I finished eating my snack, Mal and I went on an organizing and cleaning spree. Check it out!
A little olive oil…
We got so much accomplished and it feels awesome! Hooray!
While we worked, I ate a bunch of Pretzel Crisps.
Off to make dinner! Have a nice night, friends!
Question of the Day
How many cookbooks do you own? What percentage of them do you actually use on a regular basis?
My answer: I had 41 cookbooks (now 20). I use maybe 10% of them on a regular basis. I’m all about using the Internet to find recipes.
