Someone keeps giving Lu mohawks...it isn't me! This was after she attempted to smooth her hair back down. Poor thing. She needs a hair cut. Jake also calls HER Lewis. He has since we first started dating. I keep reminding him that she's a lady, but he says she looks like an Uncle Lewis. She's so abused.
For dinner last night I made sweet potato veggie nachos! I sliced up two sweet potatoes, tossed the pieces in olive oil, paprika, garlic powder, and some taco seasoning from Primal Palate. I baked them without any toppings for 10 minutes at 375.
While they were baking, I chopped up the veggies for the top - tomato, red pepper, jalapeno, and onion. After the 10 minutes were up, I piled the sweet potato slices and put all the veggies on top. Then I baked it all together for 20 minutes at 375. The last few times we have made these, we used steak, too. I like these because you have a lot of options!
When the nachos were finished baking, I topped them with avocado and cilantro. We also had lentils with Sriracha and fresh limes!
Yummmm. This was super good and very filling!
After dinner, Jake had a meeting, so I worked on some school stuff until he got home. Then we sat at the table talking until WAY past our bed time. I have decided that I'm going to apply for jobs all over, so we were discussing states we like/think we would like and areas that we might not be as interested in. There's definitely a lot to consider!
I didn't run this morning, so I got to do my favorite thing - lounge in my jammies and drink coffee! This is one of my favorite parts of summer. I love getting to take my time in the mornings and not rush out the door to get to work. While I'd rather start my day with a run, I really love the days that I can drink coffee and wear my robe. It doesn't happen very often! And now that I've completed the Leadville heavy half, I don't feel like such a poser drinking out of these coffee mugs. ; ) I'm hoping I get to do this a lot more next year since I won't be going back to teaching full-time while I finish my dissertation.
Breakfast! Mmm. Coffee. Double mmm. I'm back to black coffee this week! I used up all my Ripple Vanilla milk, so I need more!
I am obsessed with this lap desk. I have had it for YEARS. The next few weeks are going to be bonkers, so I spent some time this morning looking over my planner and mentally preparing. All while drinking coffee, of course. Also, can we take a moment to talk about the fact that it's almost July??? What the heck. How did that happen? This summer is FLYING.
My friend Michelle sent me this awhile ago - I was the worst and read it, died laughing, then totally forgot to tell her how hilarious she is. I mean, it seems fine to me! ; )
Since I didn't run today, I'm planning on going to yoga and doing a weight circuit in the garage later. I have a TON of work to do on my dissertation proposal, so I'm going to spend the next 5 or so hours working on that. It's hard for me to sit and work on my computer for long periods of time when I don't run, so we will see how this goes.
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.
