I didn’t have a drop of coffee until 10:15 this morning! Kevin wanted to get a headstart at work today so I let him off the hook on coffee making duty (good thing our “club house” has free coffee). Since we were up early, I decided to take advantage and hit the gym a bit earlier for my morning workout. I TOTALLY HOGGED the treadmill. I think there were a couple of people lurking, and I felt a little bad. But they all had headphones on, and I didn’t want to interrupt and be like,”Hey guy, you want a turn?” So I just continued to hog. There’s no time limit on the treadmill. The out-of-order sign on the other treadmill says it will be fixed by Labor Day weekend… can’t wait! I made a little goal to run for 1 hour. I only hit 7:08 miles so that was an underwhelming pace of 8:28 overall, but I was doing intervals! Intervals are a LOT tougher than running a steady 8:28 pace. I was watching Regis & Kelly and sprinting it out during the commericals. Kelly works out tons and is famous for those rocking biceps. Definitely inspirational.
Maybe I should start racing in heels as well?*
I felt like Kevin James deserved something sweet for lunch. I really feel that his sweet tooth has been neglected since we moved to Denver because I just don’t have ingredients on hand. Well, I pulled together and created this Triple Berry Cobbler. I based the cobbler part off How Sweet Eats, but the filling was all mine. Fresh strawberries + raspberries + Blueberry Greek Yogurt. I had sway too much of the cobbler batter so I put it on the bottom as well. That’s everybody’s favorite part anyways, right?
Kevin was reallllly happy. I require copious amounts of affirmation whenver I try something new, and he complimented away! I had to steal a taste myself. I couldn’t believe I loved it! It was so good warm. If I was serving it to company, I’d pair it with vanilla ice cream, but I personally don’t like ice cream mixed with things.
I am going through a breakfast phase! I can’t stop with the English muffins, eggs, and pancakes! I threw in soggy old broccoli, black beans, and a few other leftover vegetables with 1 egg + 2 egg whites. Kevin has taught me his style of pouring on the crushed red pepper. Mmmmm!!
I also threw together a colorful little fruit plate. I was a little territorial over the oranges since I was the one begging for them in the grocery store, but I’m happy to say that I shared and it ended well.
I invented a new little game today. I hate it when Kevin looks at his watch when it’s time to go back to work after lunch. So I like to hide it with his sleeve. So mature, I know. Do you know I never kept a clock in my classroom? I don’t like people looking at the time when I’m talking away. Of course, that just made them want to look at their cellphones even more badly. The torture of high school!
I, however, was not being tortured this afternoon. I decided to spend the last beautiful August afternoon poolside. Nobody was there. I was so happy. But I really missed my tanning buddy and only lasted about 40 minutes!I would’ve killed for these days when I was teaching K-12 & working on my M.Ed. And now I just miss teaching! I sent my resume a few more places today, but still searching for my dream job. It’s been 8 days – what’s taking so long?!?!
Have a great evening!
*Kelly was blown off the line at the start by large amazon women who competed in track at the college level. They were running like they were wearing track shoes, perfect form and all out.
The winner set a World Record in the Guiness Book doing 150 yards in just over twenty seconds. She was awarded $25,000.
