Happy October, everyone! Today has been the longest day ever. Hopefully, I can string together complete thoughts for this post. Just to give you a sense of my current state, I’m blogging in my PJ’s. It’s 6 p.m.
Workout – Running
Thirty minutes on the pavement plus body-weight exercises like push-ups squats, and single-leg squats.
In addition to the protein-packed pumpkin bread I baked yesterday, I also made a batch of pumpkin crunch granola. Meghan posted her recipe a few days ago, which I altered a bit, and this stuff tastes great. It’s dangerously good. (I’ll post my version soon!) It needed to be incorporated into this morning’s meal, so a yogurt parfait proved perfect.
Frozen strawberries and blueberries comprised the fruit layers. Then came plain Greek yogurt and a generous sprinkle of the granola. For good measure, I also drizzled some almond butter on top.
My mom and I shopped away the morning and took a lunch break around 1:30 p.m. For Meatless Monday, I made a salad with scrambled eggs, red and green peppers, celery, and apple slices.
It’s been a while since I’ve had a salad, so it totally hit the spot. I satisfied my sweet tooth with a slice of pumpkin bread.
To use a sports metaphor, lunch served as halftime of today’s shopping spree. Following lunch, more of the same ensued. Basically, this is what I wanted to buy.
And this is what I ended up buying.
Contents of this organized chaos include (but aren’t limited to) plates, bowls, wine glasses, plus a duvet and shower curtain. And we’re going shopping again tomorrow.
To end this post on a positive note, how about some Ryan Gosling?
October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which Ryan took the liberty of reminding us. I saw this graphic on Facebook (thanks, Annie and Michele!), and since I love Ryan Gosling, I thought I’d pass it around.
How was your Monday? Do you love Ryan Gosling as much as I do?
