A day off

Sometimes we need an unplanned day off.

I had planned to workout today but had absolutely no drive to, so i took the night off and am letting myself off the hook for it.

Tomorrow is New Year’s Eve amd my roommate C and I are going out! Country bar here we come! Maybe I’ll meet a sexy charming cowboy :):):)

I’ll let you know.

What are your New Year’s Eve plans?

I decided to enjoy a day off from my calorie counting and be bad lol.

Lunch

Was freaking delicious and i loved every bite of it!!!! Of course today i ran slower than a slug.

Damn the dollar bins at target.

I had to hit target to get stocking stuffers for my roommates. We did our Christmas last night.

I finally caved and got an Eos chopstick. I like it but am not 100% sold yet.

Every year my roommate C makes ornaments for everyone who lives here :mrgreen: my initials are on the other side.

The rest of my weekend and blue apron

The rest of my weekend was mostly relaxing.

image

image

I got in some workouts and Artemis is slowly getting better at hanging out with me while i workout in our little home gym.

I took her to the dog park for the first time this weekend but it was a muddy rainy mess so i didn’t take pictures.

I made blue apron mushroom and chard quiche, though i halved the amount of mushrooms they gave me and added red onion and put in an extra egg.

image

image

I really only expected one quiche and was super suprised when it was two mini quiche. I turned it into six meals!!!! All i need to do is add a small side or make my snack between meals a little bigger but man totally got my money’s worth on that meal.

Ok sleep time for me!!!!!

Oh for a romance update i have re-signed up for eharmony so in a few weeks you should look forward to some dating hijinks posts.

Night!!!

How was your weeknd?

Christmas and Blue Apron

Christmas eve i enjoyed the house to myself and made a salmon pasta dish from blue apron.

image

image

image

Weeks later and i still love the ease with which they make cooking. I love that there is little to no excess, everything is used in the cooking.

image

And it is good quality.

image

image

Leftover pasta water

image

Its delicious!!!!

Christmas morning i got in a good workout.

image

40 min on the bike

image

40 min on the treadmill

image

My hair is pincurled during my workout for christmas celebration

image

Dressed up for Christmas

I went to my roommate’s family gathering. It was quite fun!

image

They live on an old farm with a good amount of property and i want it!!!! Lol.

I even got a little gift of stocking stuffers from them :mrgreen: they made me feel veey welcome.

How was your Christmas?

Welcome to adulthood Ariana

And the hits just keep on coming.

Tomorrow i get to read through all my health benefits and figure out percentages and what insurance should be  and whether it is or not. New insurance bills rolled in from my surgery which say that i am on the line for a little over 5 grand!!!! After some major panic and a conversation with my mom, some major confusion about the breakdown of my bills and some tears, i came to the realization that i get to walk step by step through every bill and charge and call Dr.s and hospitals and insurance and fight tooth and nail to get my stuff paid. Otherwise I’ll be slowly paying this off for the next 6 years. Oh goody another car payment! I want to be a kid again!!!!!!

On a happier note i have been trying to make healthier food choices. I’ve been doing oatmeal in a mason jar on the way to work, dont worry i sit in traffic im not eating oatmeal at 60mph.

image

image

Oatmeal, brown sugar and fruit. Basic and delicious.

Remember that running wall i was working on.

image

I started the begining of mine

image

image

Lunch today was a delicious vegetarian burrito.

image

Thank goodness for Excercise. I’ll be getting on the bike here soon.

How was your night?

Race review**5k winter series December race

So the 5k race series i signed up for had the first race this past Saturday.

image

Here is the link.

It was a pretty small race which was really nice. Pretty good swag for a 5k. A long sleeve t-shirt, they put a December patch on it and will add a January and February patches and those races.

They actually had a good amount of food for a 5k as well; bagels, oranges, dave’s killer bread with butter, and some kind of pastry as well as coffee.

image

Thankfully my new long workout pants had just arrived from fabletics on Friday so i got to stay pretty warm in freezing cold weather.

It was an out and back course with about half of it in a park which was nice. There was one aid station on the course but because it was out and back you got to pass ot twice which was really nice. At the finish line they had gluckos water (or however that energy stuff is spelled).

Post race they had Einstein bagel egg, cheese and bacon, sausage or spinach sandwiches that were awesome!!! It was perfect for post race food!

Overall i was very impressed for a 5k and am really looking forward to the next two races.

image

Weekend wrap-up

Sunday morning my roommate convinced me to get up and go to yoga.

image

I am glad i went. These are the days when it is really good to have a workout partner. It made me introspective which made me a little depressed but i pulled myself out of it.

Our second Barkbox came!!!

image

image

image

I love this!! You put treats in it and the dog can slowly chew them out.

image

image

I got a treat tin to out all her treats in!! I’m stoked about that!

image

This is the perfect toy for Artemis, the head is a tennis ball and the body is ropes and squeakers. Artemis can’t have anything with stuffing because she will eat it and get sick.

image

I swear this looks like a slim jim.

I bought probiotics from Amazon because i caught a stomach bug that is going around. Those came on Saturday so i am starting to take those to balance me out.

I did a bit of organizing and decorating of my room. I need to get settled.

How was your weekend?
