I just looked at the clock and realized that Saturday is already half over! Time slips away when you’re a busy gal like me.
I ‘slept in’ until 8:40am this morning – not too early, not too late. I considered gearing up for a run right away, but when I realized I didn’t have to worry about scorching temps the rest of the day, I decided to have a relaxing morning doing things around my apartment.
Breakfast was first.
I made myself grainy [my word a for hearty/nutty batter] pancakes. I used the nutritious mix I found earlier this month at the local co-op for jiffy meal prep.
Local Peaches, Raspberries, Pecans, unsweetened Coconut, Real Maple.
You could say I enjoyed my breakfast : )
I also sipped on Giada Espresso Roast iced coffee with 1% milk.
Caffeinated, I vacuumed and finished 4 loads of laundry. Ahhh, clean sheets are my favorite.
I checked the forecast once more, and it read: 65*F | 45% humidity. I jumped for joy, and then immediately slipped into shorts and a tee. I was going running outside!
I’m really not a fan of running around the area where I live, but I tried to ignore the stoplights and commercial development and appreciate the cool, cloudy air. I haven’t run outside in nearly 2 weeks, since my memorable morning at the Healthy Living Summit. I ran swiftly for 32 short minutes. Gosh, I gotta get on my long runs!
Keeping up with my indulgent Saturday eats, I made healthified nachos for lunch.
Food Should Taste Good Multigrain Chips, Sharp White Cheddar, Black Beans, Avocado, Fresh Salsa.
I rarely ever photograph my sweet treats, so today I made a point to capture my after-lunch dessert.
Ok, so these almonds aren’t the cheapest Trader Joe’s item at $6.99, but they last me a while; life’s too short not to enjoy your simple pleasures.
I’ve been neglecting my green tea stash for quite some time, but this afternoon I was in the mood for a refreshing glass of green.
I have a lot of reading and writing starring me in the face. My student duties are calling… I hope ya’ll are enjoying your weekend.
