Sunday nights are always so happy and sad for me.
Happy because they’re usually good nights, spent lazing around at home with a clean house and stretching out the weekend as much as we possibly can.
But then tomorrow is Monday, and it’s back to work.
Is there a reason that we don’t always have 3 day weekends?
While Nick was outside mowing the lawn, I finished up today’s laundry, dusted, and vacuumed the house, but not without stopping for snack breaks.
I knew I was planning on running after I finished cleaning, so I wanted to make sure I had some fuel in my belly. I ate this Cashew Cookie Larabar and I might have had a cookie, too :)
Once Nick was done mowing, I headed out for a run.
It. was. AWESOME today!!! Today was my first time ever having every single mile be under 9:00! I don’t know what has happened lately and why I’m all of sudden a bit faster, but thank goodness! I felt like I was just running at the same speed for months and months, and it’s just catching up to me, I guess. I did my 4 miles I was supposed to do yesterday, so I’m back on schedule.
I think I went at the perfect time, too. A little after 6 here is still light, but the sun is almost ready to go under so it’s not shining right on you the entire time and it’s a bit cooler. The only bad thing is there are still some bugs out, but they weren’t horrible. I just hate when they fly right in my eyes or in my mouth – not fun.
Since we ended up having lunch at church today, dinner was super easy.
We each had a salad again with some feta, olives, and some caesar dressing, and we each heated up our leftover calzones.
Dinner in 15 minutes? Easy when you have good leftovers waiting. Plus, while the calzones were heating up in the oven, we went outside and watched some groundhogs in the yard next door. Super fun for me – I think they’re so cute.
I can’t wait to make more calzones. These just turned out so good, and the dough recipe was so easy – I didn’t even us a mixer! I just did everything by hand.
After that carb-wrapped dinner, I’m ready to lie down…or get ready to watch Iron Chef ;)
