Phew! What a day it has been!!
The kids are getting more antsy and you can tell the end of the school year is almost here. Good thing I only have 7 more days left of school!!
On top of that, this was my last “regular” Tuesday because next Tuesday is field day at school.
After school, I had thought about going to the gym tonight to lift weights but decided to relive stress by baking and blogging instead.
My run this morning was short and sweet: 5 miles in 42 minutes.
Today was an “easy” day because yesterday I ran 8 miles (with a tempo run) and did 90 minutes of yoga.
This morning it was a few degrees cooler than yesterday, and I could really tell. I was chilled to the bone when I got back home!
For breakfast, I enjoyed a delicious bowl of overnight oats. The strawberries and bananas on top totally made this bowl!
However, the cold oats didn’t help me to warm up, so I had to stop for some hot coffee on my way to work.
Actually, that’s how I started drinking coffee in the first place. When I moved to Alaska, I was always cold–okay, so I still am—and in order to alleviate this problem, I would drink hot tea to warm myself up.
Well, as with a lot of other foods, I grew tired of tea, so I would throw in an occasional cup of coffee. I didn’t like the taste of plain, black coffee, so I started with mochas which then turned into lattes, and now Americanos because the mochas and lattes are often too sweet for me. Plus I like the taste of a good coffee!
When I got home after school today, I found a package from my friend Jenn waiting for me!
She sent me buckwheat flour!! Thanks, Jenn. Can you move to Alaska so you can be my friend?
This pizza was topped with a variety of veggies that Craig sauteed up: mushrooms, onions, and red pepper plus black olives and mozzarella cheese on top.
I resisted trying one tonight, but I’m excited to have one for breakfast in the morning. I have no doubt they will be amazing!
