Hello peeps! Happy Sunday… I hope you’ve had a good week. Here’s a quick overview of mine:
I spent MLK day at home feeling kind of BLAH! while Aunt Flo did her thing. My treat was a Mocha at Books a Million (BAM) that I enjoyed while I tried to decide what to recommend for Book Club… I chose The Rosie Project by Graeme C. Simsion. I’m looking forward to it.
On Tuesday, I had a fun but brief discussion about 1Q84 by Haruki Murakami. This over 1000-page book is insane. Only two people in my club finished it and I was 3/4 done so I was able to contribute some but not a lot. It is a really bizarre book but I have enjoyed it… mostly. I hope to finish tonight. Here’s my favorite quote… so far:
“Most people in the world don’t really use their brains to think. And people who don’t think are the ones who don’t listen to others.”
On Wednesday I finally made it back to the gym. I have been working my biceps with 15 lbs. dumbbells and it finally felt manageable. But then on Thursday I was really sore and took another rest day.
Friday was really really busy which are my favorite and I finished the day at the gym with a fantastic Blacklight Zumba class. I also tried a new recipe. Check out these super yummy Pistachio Pesto Chicken Terderloins. Erin uses nutritional yeast instead of parmesan but I decided to stick with parmesan. That’s the only thing I changed. Delish.
On Saturday I woke up early and did my first official 5K of the year. YAY! My #3 Resolution this year is to run 150 miles and start a bib collection. Here’s my first one:
Today I took it easy. I made another oatmeal-banana bread… with strawberries this time, did an hour of zumba at the gym, had a yummy cup of lentil soup for lunch, and ended the week the same way I started it: with another Mocha at BAM. 😀
