The whole sleeping thing didn’t really happen Friday, Brooke had a fever. What child is still smiling with a fever? She was extremely cuddly though. Cuddling with Brooke > than me sleeping.
She did feel well enough for our daily tradition of discussing important things while we eat apples and almond butter together
I usually take Fridays off completely but during Brooke’s nap I just needed to get out and do something, I was having cabin fever… Elliptical and 20 minutes of strength training did the trick.
I solved two problems yesterday by eating my soup directly out of the pan:
1. I am lazy and didn’t want to do an extra dish.
2. We don’t have a bowl big enough to fit all of the soup and this way I didn’t have to get up to get seconds.
This was the TJ’s minestrone soup and I always add spinach to the soup while it is cooking.
I’ve really been into this whole ‘make bread every day’ thing lately.
Please tell me that you get really excited when you notice that you have two ripe bananas because you know that means it is time to make those babies into banana bread. Recipe HERE.
The recipe doesn’t tell you to add chocolate chips on top but I strongly encourage/recommend/think it is necessary to do so.
Friday night has just become pizza night for me. I swear it makes my long run the next day feel really good. It is my secret weapon.
Thai Chicken and Bacon Chicken Ranch… Both incredible.
Time to knock out 20ish miles! No tempo, no speed, just easy miles with the girls followed by sitting in the river for an ice bath. Sounds like a perfectly normal way to spend a Saturday morning to me.
Have an amazing Saturday!! Eat something extra delicious today.
