Today has been one of my favorite kind of Sundays…
Lazy, yet productive
I got my day started off with a super-awesome workout!
Workout #1 – Treadmill:
- First 20 minutes = HIIT workout (20 seconds @ 9.5mph / 40 seconds @ 4.5mph)
- Last 20 minutes = Run, alternating between 6.0mph – 7.0mph
- Total: 4.5 miles
Workout # 2 – Yoga:
- 10lb. Slimdown YOGA from Exercise TV
I seriously don’t know why I don’t do yoga after running more often. It felt incredible!
I had some craaaaazy cravings for a combo cereal bowl today.
Immediately after finishing my cereal, I had to dig in to the Butterscotch Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Bars…
I definitely had a couple of these throughout the day.
There was some some grocery shopping that needed to be done today, but really wasn’t in the mood to leave the house. Fortunately, the simple act of picking up an iced coffee while shopping makes it so much more enjoyable!
Once I got home, I started to take care of some cleaning/tidying up around the house and just-so-happened to find Cody in one of his new favorites places…
Apparently, my cat loves the tub. More specifically, he loves trying to lick every last drop of water that he can find in the tub. For weeks now, he’s been eyeballing the water in the tub every time I get out of the shower. He’d watch from afar, but never do anything else. Well, now I’ll call him my tub bandit.
He cracks me right up!
Jay was out playing ice hockey all day and I really had no idea when he was going to be getting back home. So when he called asking “what’s up for dinner,” I was kind of at a loss since I hadn’t planned anything. I did a quick scan of what was in the fridge, seeing if I’d be able to throw together some salads.
Then he said, “Want me to check and see what soups Panera has on my way home?”
I knew I loved this man for a reason.
We got ourselves some of their chicken noodle soup, which I have now determined is my favorite Panera soup. My heart used to belong to their Vegetarian Vegetable, until they changed the recipe…darn you, Panera!
Good thing they still come through with this chicken noodle…I supposed I’ll let it slide.
The noodles are easily what make this soup…I need to find them!?!
To go with our soup, I made some simple salads with romaine, cukes, carrots, red onion, grape tomatoes, and some cubed fontina cheese. Fontina cheese…definitely a good choice!
And of course, with Panera soup, you get Panera baguettes. I think I could eat their baguettes for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. They’re fantastic!
Now I’m planning on spending the rest of my evening reading this issue of bon appetit magazine that my MIL picked up for me,
and relaxing on the couch with these two characters.
Boy, life is tough, isn’t it?
Hope you’ve all had a great weekend! They go by wayyy too fast, don’t they??
