I went to the grocery store and Chapters this morning.
I bought myself Santa found me a book for under the tree and I got the new issue of Runner’s World. Love. At the grocery store, I got lots of goodies and a really pretty poinsettia to make it feel even a little more festive in my apartment!
I had lunch and then worked on my portfolio for a while this afternoon.
Later on, I went for a run on the trails. It wasn’t a bad run, but I got followed by a creeper on a bike (called my mom in tears, decided to get pepper spray in my stocking, haha) and got soaked in the rain. I am okay with rainy runs so long as I’m out before it starts pouring, and that’s what the case was here! I also got my Garmin uploaded onto my computer today (Thanks for the inspiration, Lauren).
After my shower, I wanted to go to the mall but I knew better than to go without eating so I had a quick snack and headed out.
I spent longer than I meant to at the mall, but I popped into lulu for the first time since I quit (no purchases, just good to see familiar faces) and ran into a girl from home. It was the perfect distraction.
When I got home I was ready for dinner. I’d bought a
hugh jass value pack of ground beef so I cooked it and then got a little creative with dinner and leftovers to eat this week and freeze. Going into exams, it’s nice to know there’s things ready if I don’t feel like cooking!
Eating nachos for dinner was a little bit of something I had to talk myself into, but they’re made with organic chips that are mostly flax seeds and I used yogurt instead of sour cream. So there. I think having dessert (the gingerbread cupcakes were delicious, and even better with vanilla ice cream) last night after the incident on Friday was victory number one, this is number two!
Speaking of last night, here are some pictures!
