There’s no other way to describe my run today.
My watch had no battery so I set out on a 40 minute run this morning. My legs were already achey when I woke up but I figured a run would help shake that feeling. So, so wrong. Each step felt like a combination of jello legs as well as lifting concrete blocks at my feet. Not the most fun run but hey, air squats and jumping lunges will do that to you.
I switched up breakfast today and made a mexican omelet.
Terrible photo of a falling-apart omelet, but it tasted great. It was two eggs, green pepper, onion, tomato, jalepeno, and two veggie sausage patties. This kept me full for awhile!
I spent the rest of the morning researching laptops (mine is on its last leg and needs to be replaced asap). My bank account is definitely going to appreciate that purchase. I also applied to two more full-time jobs which always takes a lot of time (thanks to individualized cover letters). After all that screen time I needed to get out of the house. I made a grocery list and was on my way!
I came across the strangest fruit while at the store!
The bottom item is called “cucuzza sqush”, followed by the orange “horned melon” and the sea creature-like “rambutan”. Never ever heard of any of these haha but on a day when I’m bored I might pick one up and try something out with it.
I made it out with some great purchases!
And passed up some not-so-necessary ones 😉
My favorite purchase of the day was something that I’ve been eyeing for awhile now.
Machego cheese, brie, and a small jar of fig spread. Ever since the grocery store had samples of sharp cheese and sweet fig spread, I knew one day I’d have to take the plunge.
I’m so happy I did because it made a delicious lunch when I got home!
I’ll be back later tonight or tomorrow morning (depending on how late work goes) to share a healthy muffin recipe with you! Enjoy your Tuesday!
I. love. manchego cheese. I used to have it all the time when I studied abroad in Spain and I miss it so much. I can never find it here!
Yeah the Europeans are all about their cheese. And who can blame them 🙂
Way to get out there and still run! I definitely have those concrete jello days. Perfect way to describe them. Your lunch looks awesome. I love cheese and crackers!
It was delish 🙂
I’ve never heard of those things either… Have you tried them yet?!
No but I think I’m going to pick up the horned melon next time I go…I’m way too curious! haha
