Usually during my breaks from school, I’m running around like a mad-woman trying to get as much as humanly possible done: cleaning, laundry, running errands, paying bills. . . .you know, all the fun stuff!
However, during this break, I feel like I’ve really had a chance to relax and do some things that I don’t normally have the time to do.
Things I have indulged in so far this week:
I’ve been sleeping in to a whopping 6:30 a.m. I guess that’s what happens when your body is used to waking up at 5 a.m. Ah well, at least I am not waking up to an alarm clock.
I love making hot breakfasts for Craig and myself. . . . pancakes, French toast, oatmeal!
Watching the Morning News on TV
After breakfast, I love being able to sit down on the couch, watch The Early Show, and read blogs. . . . .a perfect morning in my book!
Okay, so I’ve only watched one movie, but that’s an accomplishment for me.
I am ashamed to say that this was the first time I’ve seen The Notebook. I’m not one to stay up on the latest and greatest films.
I really enjoy shopping but rarely have the time to go on my weekends, so I’ve hit up a couple of consignment stores and the mall today. I have yet to purchase anything, but I guess that’s not always a bad thing.
Don’t mind the super dirty snow. Everywhere you go during this time of the year looks like that: “snirt” (as my aunt called it) = snow + dirt!
Free Doughnuts and Coffee
What more can I say?
A little time consuming, but super delicious!
Usually during the evenings, I’m running around trying to get everything done before the next day starts, but now I actually have time to sit down on the couch to watch TV with Craig.
One of his favorite shows.
Dessert Twice a Day
Usually, I only have dessert once a day—in the evenings—because I know I don’t need two desserts in one day. However, during break, it is nice to indulge in a little something sweet after lunch as well.
Today’s run was one that I would rather forget. I’m not sure what the deal was, but I did not feel so good during my 5 mile run.
Possible causes to feeling like I had lead in my stomach and legs with no juice:
- eating too much for breakfast.
I was starving when I woke up, but it may have been too much before heading out for a run.
- not waiting long enough after having breakfast.
Usually I wait 2 – 3 hours after eating breakfast, but I was out the door within 1.5 hours of eating.
- drinking hot water with lemon juice.
The acid from the lemon maybe had a negative effect on my stomach??
- The air was really cold and had a pungent gasoline order in the air. I’m not sure what it was from, but it was awful!
Anyway, whatever it was, I am glad it was only 5 miles, and I’m hoping tomorrow’s run goes a lot better.
What would your indulgences be if you had a break from school or work?
