Sunny Sunday

Hello guys! How are you doing? Hope everyone is doing well and feels well rested for the week ahead! Today was a beautiful, warm and sunny day here in SC. Josh and I crashed pretty early last night and I naturally woke up at 6:45. I rolled out of bed and got ready for a crazy day of To Do's! I started by cleaning the house then ran out and did our weekly food shopping. I came back and headed out for a 6 miler. I just let my body do what it wanted in terms of speed:


Then I took this guy for a quick walk to cool down:

The rest of my afternoon was spent working (blahhh!) and learning my Body Pump choreography. I'm teaching half of tomorrow mornings 5:45 AM class (which I will be taking over in about two weeks!).

For dinner tonight, I wanted something easy. I roasted up the remainder of my ginormous sweet potato from last night and some jicama. I topped them with tons of pinto beans and salsa. On the side I had my usual apple and unpictured glob of nut butter:

For dessert, I had a big mug of hot chocolate topped with truwhip (YUM!). Now I'm watching the Patriots/Colts, Christmas shopping, and doing laundry! Phew!
Whats your Monday looking like? Monday is normally one of my lighter work days, but I have about 6 hours of meetings and some work that needs to get done, so I have to shift my schedule around a bit. Other than that, I have Body Pump in the AM and hopefully some relaxing at night!

I don't have classes on Mondays, but somehow they always seem to fly by and I end up getting nothing done!! I'm back to 5 day weeks next semester so I'm living it up!

Girl anytime you wanna chat, just holler. would love to talk about NC/SC. I have fond memories. Some of them. The other half were not so good. Too country and southern with no real yoga (this was 2000-04) and I was a young whipper snappper on my way to CA. Had I lived there now, my friends tell me things have gotten wayyy more progressive, and I've mellowed. LOL Write me if you wanna chat about life in the Carolinas! Would love to hear your take...

how come you never show pictures of the nut butter you claim to eat so much of?

Happy Sunday girl! I must say that my tomorrow is lookin' pretty busy, but Mondays usually are full of meetings and work grrr and tomorrow will be much of the same! However after work I am going to a Whole Foods cooking class with my Mom that is based around T-giving so I can't wait for that! Plus good tv once I get home, yes please :)

Molly said...

haha apparently the Anon doesn't know what nut butter looks like! ;)

Looks like a fun run!

Monday itself isn't bad, but it does mean the beginning of a stressful week...I just keep counting down to Thanksgiving!

Lizzy said...

Monday is my day off! My mom and I are getting together for a girls day. We will probably go to the gym for an hour, go shopping and to lunch.

Erica said...

Yum Yucky said...

Well, I zoned in on the "dessert" part of the post and I must seek out this TruWhip you speak of.....

Relaxing run, walk with the pup... best kind of Sunday in my book!

I have physical therapy and a job interview... good distractions, because my boy's going away for a month :-(

Deva (Voracious Vorilee) said...

Tomorrow looks to be a busy day for me, but I'm excited for it. Your dinner looks so yummy! I need to really try putting beans on top of sweet potatoes, it looks good, but I keep wondering about the similar textures..

fittingbackin said...

eh - my Monday should be okay, not as chill as I'd prefer but I have few meetings so yesssss. :)

5:45?! Wowza!

laura dishes said...

Frank always looks so innocent!

I might have a case of the MONDAYS... too many year end things at work, car battery just died (4th one in 3 months and they can't figure it out, lol), and studying for a work-related exam! Yikes... Debbie Downer! :)

teresa said...

tam said...

Sofa day was great! I've just noticed I have the same workout watch as you, I keep forgetting to put it on! I must get back into wearing it.

Thanks for stopping by x x

Lauren said...

What a great day! And I never congratulated you on your AWESOME 10 mile race! So proud girl! ;)

Aren't you loving the Tru Whip? Watch out, this stuff quickly becomes addicting. I'm hooked on it! :)

Have a great day loves.

CaSaundraLeigh said...

You gotta love the wrinkles on the bullies!! I love em' the only thing is they are soo high maitenence..but worth it!! Do you have to wash Frank's face and all of that fun stuff?!

Sounds like you have a busy Monday, so glad you slept in and kicked back a bit on Sunday!

K from ksgoodeats said...

Frank!! What a stud just chillin' on the couch!

6 hours of meetings? That sounds like torture! When my work meetings go over 2 hours I get cranky so good luck today!! Also, I hope the class went well this morning! My Monday includes bio studying and How I Met Your Mother watching. The last part is my savior ;)

Krista said...

I couldn't stand 6 hours of meetings! Good luck with that. My Monday is looking pretty low key. Working, playing taxi and then I have a movie to watch!

Julie said...

oh! I hope class went good this morning! You gotta be on your A game so early girl :) you know you'll kick butt.

hahaha frank is such a stud for real.

I've got LOTS of school work to hack into this week. aka notttt fun stuff.

katherine said...

Mondays are usually pretty busy, but having sunshine this morning definitely helped get me going on the right foot.

I really have to try jicama sometime soon!

Shannon said...

congrats on your race!!!! fantastic job :) and what a fabulous weekend :)

Kimberly said...

Usually Mondays are very busy for me. However, today should be slow. Tomorrow will be my busy day as we have our monthly board meeting.

Therese said...

That IS one heck of a busy day! Awesome that you are staying with your running routine even after the race. How did your legs feel? Still fresh?

Have a great week!

Sweetie Pie said...

I wish I could borrow your pup for my cool downs. I need a dog buddy!

Alisa - Frugal Foodie said...

Oooh, hot chocolate sounds soo good!

Monday is looking busy, off for a workout, dr. appt, and evening out!

Jenna said...

I am having a hard time with my Monday! I can't seem to get into the swing of things. Motivation is at about 10%, haha.

Bridget said...

Hi Frank :)
So....I went to Body Pump last Thursday!!! LOVE it!! Definitely going on a regular basis now :) I am trying Body Combat tonight, can't wait!!

Holly said...

Frank looks so sweet and a bit sad in the picture!! I just wanna give him a big smooch.

I'm jealous of your warm weather...I hear SNOW might be coming our way!??

The Blonde Duck said...

I love your random dinners. They remind me of our scrounge dinners!

Nutritious is Delicious said...

Mondays are generally pretty light for me too...except this week!
