It’s always bittersweet coming back from vacation, but overall I’m usually pretty happy to get back to my routine, and my cat.
This is my lil bebe Banjo, I know I’m biased but isn’t he the cutest??
Also, can we talk about this hoodie for a sec? It came in the mail while I was gone. I don’t have much to say about it other than I think it’s funny and other people do not. Which means it’s sort of perfect, right?
Anyhoo, getting back to the office was a bit of a struggle, but still kind of nice to have my schedule back. I’m a structure kind of gal.
I grabbed (and accidentally burned) a whole grain bagel leftover from a morning meeting as my emergency breakfast. I usually keep yogurt or cottage cheese in the fridge at work but I ran out before Vail and hadn’t been to the grocery store yet.
For lunch I hit up the grocery store salad bar. I usually don’t really like salads but I’ve been craving them after all the junk I had in Vail. This one had romaine, spring mix, cucumbers, carrots, sunflower seeds, chicken, and blue cheese dressing.
I also had a couple of caramel delite cookies for dessert. (Do you guys call these Caramel Delites or Samoas???) This was actually my first year ever buying Girl Scout cookies. I don’t know why I thought it would be a good idea to order 3 boxes of these things.
On my way home I did some much needed grocery shopping – check out this Trader Joes haul. I’m really excited to try the new mixed nut butter.
I snacked on some carrots and hummus while I put the groceries away. I love these carrot chips. They’re so good with hummus and have replaced my usual pretzels and crackers.
I really hate working out after work but I couldn’t get myself out of bed this morning so it had to be done. I continued my Couch to 5K program on the treadmill. I can’t wait until it starts to stay light out later than 6 so I can run outside more often.
Another reason I hate working out at night is it means I usually don’t have the time or energy to cook. I just want to shower and eat something easy. I heated myself a Sweet Earth vegan curry burrito – I found this brand at Target and they’re all really good! The breakfast one is the best.
Then I settled in to catch up on my shows for the night and do some reading.
Hope you all had a great Monday!
