Terrific Tuesday

Well, I guess today went pretty well for a Tuesday.

  • I got my package mailed and skipped the line, thanks to the automated postage machine.
  • I got my work done.
  • I got my run done.
  • I saw 7 goundhogs today!!! I almost hit my record of 8 in one day…so close!

While working this afternoon, I had one of my Chocolate Amazing Grass bars for a snack.


I think these are my new favorite bars – I’m going to have to order more once they’re gone since there aren’t any stores that sell them around here!

I had a 4 mile run to do today and was happy to be outside after work. I think today is going to be our nicest day this week, so I wanted to make sure to get a run in. It was only 65 degrees, but the sun was still out a little and there was a slight breeze. Perfect.

I still haven’t put my new battery in my HRM (I know…) and just wore a stopwatch today. I don’t know the exact mileage or mile splits, but I’ve run this route before and know I got in 4 miles. I actually felt pretty good today! My legs weren’t tight today like they were on Sunday and the nice weather just makes running so much more fun.

After running + stretching + showering, we heated up a quick dinner.


We both had some leftover split pea soup from last night, and I had a toasted slice of ww bread with some honey butter.


I think the soup was even better tonight. It had thickened up a little and was just the perfect texture.

I haven’t made this yet, but I’m pretty sure this will be snack tonight:


My easy microwave popcorn.


What was “terrific” about your Tuesday?

I loved seeing all those groundhogs  :) I think they’re so cute!

I’m also happy I got my package mailed. I was returning/exchanging some clothes I ordered and can’t wait to the new/replacements get here. *Hoping everything fits.

I’m in my pajamas at 7:30.



  1. 7 groundhogs!!?? That’s insane! Don’t worry…I’m in PJs too already!

  2. 7 groundhogs? How? where? Running a half made my day, but not as much as my “celebratory cupcake” will to the tune of The Biggest Loser.

  3. I love easy days and early PJ’s.

    Today was good because I got tons of stuff done and didn’t freak out. I got in PT, lots of calls and emails, dinner with Hunni at Subway and now getting some blog posts done.

    Sad part…I’m missing my babies because we have to be out of town for two days :-(

  4. I’m such a huge fan of those bars… i wish more places sold them!

  5. I love split pea soup. That looks so good!

    My day was terrific because my boyfriend surprised me and picked me up from work. He usually can’t pick me up when I work at the bakery. Loved seeing him standing there waiting to get me!

    Can’t believe you saw so many groundhogs!

  6. groundhogs? i don’t know that i’ve ever seen one actually!?

    best part about tuesday? I got paid to chill at work for all nine hours. hahaha.. too bad it was only $35!

    and i’m happy to hear you like those bars! can’t wait to get them and try!!! thanks again!

  7. I’m pretty sure I have never seen a single groundhog!
    Soup is always better the next day, glad you enjoyed!

  8. how is it that you saw 7 groundhogs in one day and I don’t even think I’ve seen one in my entire life? they must be drawn to you ;) can’t blame ’em!

  9. Ah! I was in P.J.’s the moment I got home at 5:00 today!

  10. Glad you had a great day! I got a wisdom tooth out, so not the best day over here… :/ however I know it will get better tomorrow!

    p.s. i have never seen a groundhog before, i don’t even think i’d know where to look?! that is so cool :)

  15. I love your plate and bowl! You just made me want popcorn!

  16. LOL at 7 groundhogs?! How is that possible? I guess I’m kinda jealous to be honest, lol! My Tuesday was good b/c I ate creamy portobella mac n chz for dinner!
