Today was pretty productive…I used the “Monday Mentality” to start some things that I needed to get done. Spruced up my resume, drafted a few cover letters, and am in the process of applying for a few jobs. Keeping my fingers crossed on that one!
The morning started like it always does–with coffee. No picture because, really, how exciting is a mug on the counter?
I made a breakfast that I’ve become obsessed with since moving back home. Eggs and toast never get old (but you have to combine the salty eggs and the sweet toast into a sandwich-like wonder…yum)
It took a lot longer than usual for my stomach to settle so that’s when I hung around the kitchen (typical) and did some work on my job-searching. Around 1pm I popped a medjool date in my mouth and was out the door.
Not a bad view for the run! I love running around my small town because it’s so beautiful. Unfortunately, the scenery didn’t make up for the fact that it was 90 degrees and humid. I ran a sweaty 5 miles (thanks, Dad, for the water bottle) and walking into my air-conditioned house has never felt so good.
Even when you pray to God for the sweet relief of death during a hot run, those endorphins always getcha in the end!
After icing and stretching while watching Friends, I ate a quick lunch (unpictured greek yogurt with pineapple and two veggie fajitas with avocado and salsa). Afterwards I ran out and took advantage of LA Tan’s $10 spray tan deal. I have successfully progressed from transparent to ghost-like, and I couldn’t be happier (even though I almost had a Ross-in-the-booth-moment. Too much Friends).
Taking advantage of my night off from waitressing, I made a delicious dinner. I cooked up some shrimp in butter and oil and added some halved cherry tomatoes, spinach, fresh garlic, and panko breadcrumbs. I served it over whole wheat pasta and it. was. heavenly.
Now I’m sitting on the couch with my parents watching the Hawks game and eating chocolate chips–the good life! I hope everyone had a beautiful Monday!
The pond looks beautiful! I wish I lived there!
