I did it… I had a meatless Monday to start 2012.
Breakfast sans meat easy enough…
I was going to run this morning but I am teaching spin tonight and there’s a blizzard out there. Literally it is Snowmageddon II so I think I made a good decision not to freeze my arse off this morning.
Which left time for me to vacuum my apartment (YAY!), finish my laundry, and look at my j school applications. By look at I mean say, I need to do these. Why can’t I do these? I guess there’s always tomorrow!
Luckily I had a blogger meet up with Bee from Bee Goes Bananas (check her blog out if you haven’t already!) on the schedule to look forward to! We found a Starbucks with some seating, talked about lots of stuff (from roomies to food to blogging and even Jillian Michaels), and laughed quite a bit (thanks for the fun–it was just what I needed!). Two hours later, the snow was getting bad and we realized we should probably go…:(
I made my way to the grocery store and stocked up on some stuff I need and a few I’d like to try (ingredients for Vegetable and Chickpea Curry from Cooking Light so I can use my crockpot again) and then threw together a quick dinner that I might as well post as a recipe!
Pesto Artichoke Pasta with Parmesan Cheese and Spinach
Okay, it doesn’t deserve a recipe. Because the name is literally the recipe. But you should still enjoy!
After dinner I drove (extremely cautiously) to the gym. I ran 3 miles before teaching spin. The playlist was perfect and even though I had a small class (I think because of the blizzard) it felt good!
I just spent two hours lazing around watching TV. Perfection. Also perfect was my post-workout snack, though the picture is blurry and doesn’t include the
17 extra handfuls of chocolate chips I ate. It’s greek yogurt, honey, and chocolate chips, in case it’s indistinguishable!
If it wasn’t so cold and I didn’t thoroughly enjoy/want to finish the pumpkin ice cream that’s in my overstuffed freezer right now so much, I might have bought this peanut butter and jelly ice cream that I saw today. Except that I think I’d rather just have a PB&J sandwich…
Still. Very interesting!
Tomorrow’s agenda: grad school applications, a run, and maybe some yoga. I don’t anticipate wanting to leave my apartment if it keeps snowing overnight…so I’m hoping to sleep wayyyyy in (phone is going on SILENT) and to be full of motivation to get going on the applications! Then I could blog about something else for a change!
What’s the weirdest ice cream you’ve tried and liked?
Do you like snow?
