Good morning!! I’m so excited/relieved/happy that it is Friday! This has been one insanely busy week, so I was very thankful when this morning rolled around.
When I went to bed last night, I was in a complete food coma from all the food I ate at my Kappa Delta Alum meeting. So I slept great and even let myself sleep in til 6:15 AM before hopping into the shower. The forecast was calling for a rainy start to the day so there was no way I was going to wake up extra early for a run. Plus, Nick is going out of town to visit his family for the weekend right after work tonight, so I’ll have plenty of time to get in a nice long workout this evening. Depending on the weather, it may be a long run outside with Mac or I may head to the gym after work. All I know for sure is that I need to sweat and move my body after my indulging evening.
Breakfast this morning was going to be light, but then I realized I had lots of these little beauties leftover!
Coooooookies! I had some Greek yogurt, a banana, and then several of these pumpkin oatmeal cookies to tide me over this morning. I brought the rest of the cookies into work to pawn off on my coworkers so I wouldn’t be tempted to eat them all while I have the house to myself this weekend. Thankfully, the cookies are now gone, so I can move on and away from the sweets for a few days!
And on that note, don’t you hate when you have a larger-than-normal meal, and then you can’t seem to get full during the following meals for a day or two? I swear my stomach gets ‘stretched out’ when I overeat by even the tiniest bit, and then it takes several days for my appetite to get back to normal. It’s a vicious cycle!
Today is drizzly and kinda sad looking outside, which is bringing on some cooler temperatures for the weekend. I’m going to take advantage of Nick being gone and hang up all our Fall decor and get lots of Mac snuggle time in while burning some Pumpkin scented candles…
We’ll be snuggly/cozy tonight for sure! Have a great Friday, gang.
