I can't believe that I am already home from work and I have not posted yet! I think that is the first time that this has happened in quite some time! So I am still wanting to get in another post today as I have always gotten them done on weekdays!
This morning I was up early, covering a nice 3 mile run (per the schedule) and completed it in 27:41. I was pleased with the time. The first mile was a little slowish, but the next two were great. I had "tempo" on the schedule, so I guess that was pretty accurate. I was kind of wiped when I got home. I stretched out a bit and logged my workouts for the morning before getting ready for the day.
I got back in bed after my shower, and I was out for about 20 minutes. I think I needed that 20 minutes, I felt better afterward, for sure.
I had overnight oats for breakfast, which is pretty much my all time favorite breakfast, obviously, as I eat it all the time! I made it with cookies-n-cream protein powder this time. Yum. I think that might be my fave powder to include as well. I also bought a new jar of almond butter at Trader Joe's yesterday too, so I topped it with that. Yum.
Work was crazy busy, as is obvious from the lack of entry during the workday. I am coming up on our audit for 2011, and it has also been close for January 2011, plus I just feel like I have 100 other things to do. I know that it is going to be pretty much nonstop for the next month, which definitely is stressing me out. But I guess I just have to do it and get through it. That's what its all about, right?
I ran to JCPenney at lunchtime for my mom. She wanted me to check and see if they had these certain towels that she is getting for my sister for her birthday at the end of the month. I bought Rachel one set of these towels for Christmas, and she really liked them, so my mom is getting her a few more sets for Christmas. But the color is one that is is being discontinued and her store was out of hand towels in that particular color, so I was going to check my store since we will be home this weekend. My store was out of them as well. Bummer. At least I tried, right?
I also already ordered Rachel's birthday gifts and they'll be shipped by the end of the week, so she will definitely be getting them before her birthday! And I forgot to put them as a "gift" on barnes & noble.com, so I am definitely going to have to text her to let her know that it's coming!
Ok, I am headed out to cook some dinner!
