How is it already Sunday night? Does anyone else find that Saturday and Sunday are much shorter days than are Monday - Friday? Somehow those weekend 48 hours pass so much faster than those during the week.
Today started as I rolled over and saw 8:35am on my alarm clock. Seriously, 8:30am? That means I slept for 10 fabulous hours. I was cozy in flannel pajamas and buried under four layers of sheets/blankets. That must be the secret to a really great night's sleep. Well, and maybe the sleep deprivation plays a role as well. I moved from my bed to my comfy leather chair and bundled myself in a blanket with a mug of tea. Somehow, the next thing I know it's 11am and I haven't done anything productive. It felt so great just to be lazy!
Once I got moving, I put some energy into my workouts - 45 minute recovery bike and 2500m in the pool with descending intervals. Man am I sore after strength training yesterday! 150 push-ups is no joke!
Tonight's dinner inspiration was from Veganomicon - SPAGHETTI SQUASH MEXICANA WITH TROPICAL AVOCADO SALSA FRESCA. The dish came together pretty quickly and was a great mix of flavors. Unfortunately, I forgot that I needed a ripe avocado and had only unripe ones on hand. So, it was avocado-less. I had a hefty pile of roasted kale on the side.
And to finish off the evening I enjoyed an hours worth of girl-talk with a good friend while we indulged bowls of Yoforia frozen yogurt. Despite the arctic cold weather, it was a fun treat. My only disappointment was the lack of hot fudge that my froyo was desperately needing.
And with that, the weekend comes to a close. Time to set the alarm for 4:00am. Oh, how I love being a resident.
