For breakfast yesterday I made a massive veggie, egg, and sausage scramble. It was delicious.
After breakfast, I headed to the Y to spend some time on the elliptical. I am now over a week into my ‘no running’ time. It’s going okay, but I’m definitely anxious to get back to running. I will start marathon training January 2nd, so I’m counting down the days! I am feeling a ton better, so I think I'm going to test things out on Saturday with my Trail Sisters Springfield group. If you want to come join us, find us on Instagram! I wore my favorite Springfield FitLife tank to the Y yesterday.
I came home and made lunch/meal prepped. I made a bunch of sesame chicken, which is my favorite. I use coconut aminos, so this recipe is a little healthier than other sauces. It’s so easy! I just sauté cut up chicken in ghee, coconut aminos, and sesame seeds. That’s it!
Jake and I will have sesame chicken and veggies today for lunch, and then he will have this the rest of the week. This is what I call “Lazy Girl Meal Prep”, ha!
Multi-tasking so hard. Grading and doing some strength training. I taught 4 online college courses this semester and grades were due yesterday. I am officially on break!!!
Always waiting for her Daddy to get home.
When you start running the bath water and then get busy doing something else. Thank goodness I remembered before it overflowed. We are almost out of our Epsom salt, so I’m trying to potion it out until more is delivered.
This was my view the entire time I was soaking.
Zero personal space.
I laugh so hard whenever she sits like this.
My friends, Michelle and Ryan, gave me this card for graduation. It’s awesome.
I started working on Thank-Yous for all the amazing people who came to my graduation party. I definitely got a little choked up reading through all of these cards. I’m so blessed to have so many wonderful people in my life! <3
Last night, we headed to Great Escape Beer Works for a MORC Christmas party. It was a blast and we really love their beer. We also had delicious food. I can’t remember where the tacos were from, but they were amazing.
Jake and I got some new hats. They're super comfortable!
We rode our bikes to the party, so that was fun. It was definitely chilly!
I never fell asleep last night. Ugh. It’s been a LONG time since that has happened. It’s going to make for a long day! I knocked out a 5AM workout class, where I got DRENCHED, and now I’m off to sub for the day. I’m sure I’ll be ready for bed when I get home from school.
Happy Wednesday, 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.
