I’m so happy it’s the weekend, because Brian and I have a couple of fun dates planned, and after some very long days/nights at work this week I am looking forward to actually spending a little time NOT at work 🙂 Even though I do love it there.
Whether you are doing something solo, with friends, or something romantic I hope you enjoy something fun!! 🙂
Time for another round of FiveThings Friday hosted by Clare of Fitting It All In. Hope you all had a great week too!
Five Things I Ate This Week:
Ok, so I have to be completely honest. Almost everything I ate this week was out of tupperware, which means that it did NOT look very presentable. I was able to snap some pictures, but I spared you the “gross” looking meals 🙂
Lots of hardboiled eggs. They are easy to tote around and it’s easy to make a lot of them ahead of time.
My typical breakfast this week: frittata, baked sweet potato, and melted frozen fruit with hardened coconut butter on the top (try it…it’s so good!)
Ratatouille with baked cod and broccoli. I made the ratatouille on Sunday in the crockpot, roasted the veggies, and baked the cod on Sunday so when I got home around 8pm on Tuesday night this was a quick meal to throw together.
Ratatouille (again!) with cod mixed in, nuts, and carrots (I ate way more nuts and carrots than pictured here!)
Running (I even got a little reading in while running on the treadmill. Gotta love multitasking.)
Turbokick (new class for me!)
Yoga (felt so good to be back this week!)
Five Things Making Me Happy:
The fact that it is Valentine’s Day and Brian and I are going out for DESSERT tonight! This will be the first dessert I have had in 45 days…I can’t wait 🙂 We will get a little dressed up because we have a reservation at Harry and Izzy’s in downtown Indianapolis.
My medal and bib display. I found this DIY tutorial from the Pavement Runner a few months back and I just recently got around to putting it together…it’s not perfect, but I absolutely love it!
The gorgeous view of the city that I get to see on Wednesday nights while running. Makes the whole chilly run worth it!
Maranatha Coconut Butter…omg this stuff is so good! It is super hard at room temperature, so what I do is stick it in the microwave for about 1 minute. This will make the coconut butter like liquid. Then, I drizzle it over some frozen fruit to pack for breakfast the next day and when I eat my fruit the next morning, it is like a hard shell of deliciousness over my fruit. So good!
Twilight Run Vest from Athleta. OK, so I don’t OWN this vest, but a lady in the Mini Marathon Training Program with me has this and she says it is the BEST piece of running gear she owns. It’s a great alternative to a jacket when weather is “in-between” and you aren’t sure of how many layers to wear…needless to say it is on my “want” list. A bit pricey, but I know I would get great use out of it 🙂
