I really love avocado toast. I'm sure someone, somewhere, was on to this amazing concoction YEARS ago, but man, I feel like I've been missing out. I've only been eating this for a few years now. I guess I need to eat it ALL the time to make up for lost time...
Yesterday was leg day at the gym. I am definitely feeling it today...I upped my weight in almost everything. Send help.
I love the leg press machine. Anyone else?
I stopped by the store after the gym. I was hungry, so I grabbed some beef jerky. This is delicious! I ate basically the entire bag. Eye-roll.
Jake and I got matching mountain Qalo rings! He will wear his all the time and I'll wear mine when I race. Jake doesn't like the feel of real rings, so he didn't even want to get one. THIS is what Jake looks like and THIS is mine. <3
P.S. Qalo is having a 20% sale right now for Father's Day - check it out!
Lunch was leftovers!
I did some computer work after lunch. Each time I needed a break, which was a lot yesterday, I worked on some stuff for our reception. I made these for our center pieces.
My sister sent me this yesterday from our wedding weekend. I was very serious about cutting the cake. And yes, Jake shoved it all over my face. I would've been surprised if he hadn't! I hope someone got a picture of it. All we wanted was a banana cake from St. Michael's, which is the restaurant here in town that my high school cross country coach owns. It's AMAZING. Also, if you go in there, you can find some pictures of me on the wall!
When Jake got home from work, this is how I greeted him. He's such a lucky fella. ; ) HA! He loves his ring! Kneeling is hard after leg day. I'm still wondering how Jake proposed at the finish line of his hundred....I really thought he was hurt! I was totally oblivious. Our engagement video is HERE, just in case you want to see it again! ; )
Jake left to go ride, and I didn't feel like working anymore, so I poured myself a drink. Then I decided to take an Epsom salt bath since I knew I'd be sore in the morning. It was nice to relax!
Jake got home from mountain biking with some buddies and we had dinner. We chowed down on tilapia, broccoli, beets and carrots, and a sweet Hawaiian roll. It was super yummy AND it only took 25ish minutes to make. Win-win!
It was up early this morning to get our run in. I rocked my Team Trail Sisters singlet. I need to get on some trail again soon - hopefully next week! I had some of the WORST chaffing of my life on our run today. My bra was rubbing really weird. I'll spare you the gory picture that I sent to some girlfriends, but my shower after the run was NOT fun.
Jake and I had breakfast, then he headed off to work.
This popped up on my Timehop today. That's a spider bite I had! Isn't that crazy? I just monitored it and it went away, but it was like that for almost a week. It didn't get any bigger than this, I think I took this on the worst day. I had one on the back of my leg, too. You can kind of see it on the inside of my leg.
Happy Friday Eve, friends!!
I write about whatever is going on each day. I want to use this space as a place to document my dissertation and training journeys.
