Well, I knew our weather was too good to last!
It was kind of cloudy and gloomy today, but it seemed like the rain was going to bypass us. I brought a small snack today in case we did get to run, so I ate my hard boiled egg around 4 or s0 this afternoon.
It was a good snack, but the run did not happen. As soon as we got home, it started thundering really badly and looked pretty nasty outside, so we pushed the run back to tomorrow.
Nick got working on his dissertation stuff, and I went downstairs to do some yoga.
Tonight, I tried a 20 minute Gentle Hatha and a 20 minute Detox Flow download. They were the perfect ones for today. I’ve been having kind of a weird day and just thinking about a bunch of stuff/have a lot of stuff on my mind, so I knew I wouldn’t be able to do anything more than this tonight. And I was right. I did those, felt great, and felt a bit better once I was done.
Tonight I made a meal that Nick refers to as “vegenarian”.
Anytime I make a meatless meal, he says I’m trying to make him go vegetarian :) Or “vegenarian”, in our house.
I made this Alpine Mushroom Pasta from Eating Well tonight, but with a few changes:
- I used just 2 small-er tomatoes from our garden: one red, one yellow
- I didn’t do the whole wine/flour step because I didn’t feel like it and I didn’t have any wine :)
- I didn’t stir in the smoked cheddar – I just let Nick grate on as much as he wanted. I wasn’t in the mood for it on mine tonight.
- I also just used baby portabellos (creminis)
I really liked the pasta dish! I may try it with some of the smoked cheese on it later because Nick said it was really good with the smoky cheddar. I really liked the flavors in the dish.
Well, I’m going to have a lazy night tonight – other than packing my lunch, reading my book, and getting in my pjs…I have no other plans.
What do you do to calm your mind?
