Hi guys! Exciting news… I ran a whole mile yesterday morning! First time running that far in a reeeeeally long time. 🙂 It was gorgeous out yesterday and the fresh air and moving my body felt so good… I’ve missed those sweet, sweet running endorphins so much! They are really key to my mental health/stress relief… running is definitely my favorite form of “me time.”
I’ll keep you guys updated as I continue to slowly add back in running (on days when I feel well rested enough to do so)… I’m thinking I’ll continue to try a run once or twice a week, whenever I feel up for it, and slowly build up each time. Stay tuned!
As for today, I got in a fun workout with my girls Kathleen and Chelsea this morning – love our boot camp dates. It’s supposed to snow later today/tomorrow so I was glad to get out and get some more movement in before being potentially homebound for awhile!
In food news, yesterday I squeezed in a lunch date with a friend in between work and Riese feeding! We hit up Lebanese Taverna and shared a ton of different appetizers (grape leaves, pickled veggies, and hummus and pita):
I had the salmon and kale salad for my entrée, which I brought home most of because I filled up on the apps. Leftovers FTW!
Matt got home on the earlier side last night (around 6:30), which was awesome because it was still light out and nice weather! We took a little family walk before dinner… it will be nice to be able to do this more often come spring/summer if Matt can get home before it’s dark out! When we got home, I fed Riese while Matt got creative with the Lebanese leftovers and some leftover rotisserie chicken we had on hand. He sauteed the chicken in some spices (I think he used a McCormick Moroccan spice blend), then stuffed it into the leftover pitas with leftover hummus, leftover kale salad, and chopped up leftover pickled veggies. We saved the rest of the salmon for another day since it didn’t really go with the theme. It ended up being a delicious combination – very creative!
We still have a bit left over so I’ll be enjoying it today for lunch. But for now, time to focus… I have a whole bunch of stuff on the to do list today and may need to call it early if the snow really picks up and our nanny needs to get home before the roads are unsafe, so I better get to it!
How’s the weather where you are? If you’re also expecting snow, are you excited about it or over it? I’m kind of excited since we didn’t get much this winter… but I just want one big snow day and then for it to all melt by the next day and for it to be spring weather moving forward. 🙂
