Ran 9 miles with my bestie last Sunday, and I mean it wasn't all rainbows and happiness, but it's such a good feeling when you're done! As you can see, we pretty much collapsed at the end. Okay, not really, we just relaxed on the ground for like 20 minutes.
I am sad because she's out of town this Sunday and I'm not sure I'll be able to kick myself out the door on my own. Who can I be accountable to on snapchat or instagram? Someone tell me to go running on Sunday, k thanks.
Hate to be all me me me but this is my blog so........... Anyway. The scale went down you guys. Yesterday. Below a number that I haven't seen since July last year. I am *so* close to being under a number I haven't been (consistently) below since early 2015. I know the scale isn't everything and doesn't own me and blah dee blah blah blah, but I can't go by clothes considering I had to buy new clothes when the old ones stopped fitting, so yeah. I like to see the number go down, and I am proud.
But then, you get free ice cream at work and how am I supposed to say no? I tried, I really did. But then everyone else went and got some and peer pressure.
But can I make a complaint? I know I'm not the only one who hates this - that front one is supposed to be mint chocolate chip. That means minty ice cream with chocolate chips, NOT vanilla ice cream with minty chocolate chips. Drives me bonkers you guys, I want green ice cream.
This fish from Costco. Not sure I should admit that I buy fish in a box that's like ready to eat (well, after you cook it) but I like it better than plain fish that I have to do stuff to, so sue me. Now of course I threw out the box and don't remember the brand, but this stuff goes like hotcakes in my house and it's aaaahhhmazing. It's called tilapia.. and it's parmesan something or other, maybe garlic? So basically I am no help but it's really good, so if you guys go to Costco and like fish, check it out. It's in a box in the freezer section. I know, I'm helpful. It's just really good.
As for the potatoes and zucchini, I just tossed them in some italian seasoning and olive oil, chucked them in the oven for the same amount of time as the fish. They were so good.
And finally, this.
I still had access to ebooks using my library at home, but I obviously couldn't get real books. I wasn't able to join the library here without a state issued ID or birth certificate, so I just went without a library for a couple years. Occasionally I was able to snag a book on a friend or family member's account, but it wasn't a regular occurrence. Once I got my permit, I was finally able to join the library!
Sing it with me now, having fun isn't hard when you've got a library card!
As you can tell, I am ridiculously excited about this. Why? Because I love real books, and having access to only ebooks is kind of a bummer. I love my kindle for sure, but I like a good mix. Without the library, that means shopping and you all know I have an issue with that. So I am super excited because now I have access to so many books, and they told me my limit was 50! They probably shouldn't have done that....
I am so ready for the weekend you guys. We've had pretty relaxing weekends since we got back from the cruise, and I'm not gonna lie - I am not mad about it at all. So here's to another relaxing weekend, and working on that massive pile of books!
Tell me - what's your favourite flavour of ice cream? Mine is mint chocolate chip.
