I didn’t sleep very well last night and have a 14-hour day ahead, so I’m struggling to come up with an interesting opener today… Let’s just dive into my random thoughts. Oh wait, did y’all see that I shared our current favorite dinner yesterday? Mini Mexican Meatloaves… Let me know if you try them!
Thanks Amanda for hosting another week of Thinking Out Loud!
Thought #1: By the time you read this I’ll have already been to the chiropractor and been adjusted… I still need to attend a 4th grade team meeting, teach a full day, drive to Potomac River Running, work my first shift and learn all things running, squeeze in a late workout, and eat dinner hopefully before 10PM. It’s a long Thursday!
Thought #2: Ryan tried spaghetti squash for the first time and thought it was less than delicious. I shared his thoughts via Twitter and a handful of ladies responded saying that their husbands don’t like it either… Maybe it’s in our DNA?
Thought #3: Tuesday night Ryan and I had a headstand/handstand contest. I struggled to do a headstand and he easily kicked his feet up into a handstand. A computer wiz and a secret handstander… I never saw it coming. Considering I ended up at the chiropractor yesterday and again today, he clearly won.
Thought #4: Quest did it again. I took a break from buying Quest Bars for the past few months, but the (bad) habit is back because of their newest, latest, greatest bar… Cookies & Cream. Get your hands on one or a dozen of them ASAP! And if you don’t like them, you can most definitely send them to me
Thought #5: This year I’m tracking my miles and cardio minutes for no real reason, but because I wanna know. I’ve tried using the Nike Running App, but I always forget to turn it when I do a treadmill run. A couple of weeks ago I outlined my workouts in iCal and it’s been good so far… If I switch days or change workouts, I simply have to edit the event. It doesn’t total numbers, but I don’t mind doing it myself.
- Running: 54.6 miles
- Walking: 7 miles
- Cardio: 840 minutes
Thought #6: Charlie loves getting tangled up in his t-shirt…
Thought #7: Hot dogs were our Super Bowl Sunday dinner. I used to eat hot dogs frequently as a kid (my momma made franks and beans), but nowadays we typically buy chicken sausages. The jalapeno chicken sausages from Trader Joe’s are our favorite!
Thought #8: Over the weekend we swung by Mrs. Green’s, a new natural market that offers 100% organic produce, all-natural meats and dairy, artisan baked goods, supplements, and household, pet, and baby products. It immediately reminded me of Whole Foods, but the prices were whopping expensive. Ryan said it’s called Mrs. GREEN’S for a reason – you’ve gotta have a lot of green to shop there.
Thought #9: I forgot my lunch at home today and the thought of eating cafeteria food makes my stomach churn. True story: A kid found a plastic knife in his hot dog one day at lunch when I was in elementary school. Thankfully (or unthankfully?) Ryan is working from home today because he’s not feeling well, so he and Charlie saved me from having to buy. I love my boys!
Thought #10: Saturday morning I proctored another SSAT test and afterwards treated myself to my favorite “me time” – a mani + pedi…
Question: Did you usually bring or buy your lunch in grade school?
Question: Spaghetti squash – yay or nay? What’s your favorite way to eat it?
