After spending the first half of the day either in bed or on the couch (watching Casino Royale in preparation for seeing Skyfall later this week), I took a quick shower as a marker that the day MUST begin.
Not only did Paul make me a delicious low-points+ breakfast this morning of basted eggs over brussels sprout//carrot hash, but he also made me coffee before I even got out of bed. He is a gem.
After I finished the movie and decided to kick it into DAY mode, we moved a few things out of his garage into his basement, and other activities I could help with around the house before he retired to building his robot (he's a mechanical engineering student) and I headed home to be productive in ways I hadn't yet planned out.
My main goal today was to get to the gym and knock out another session of New Rules of Lifting for Women. The gym will be closed Thursday for Thanksgiving, which throws off my schedule just a little bit, and getting in today was of utmost importance, however, when I got home, I didn't want to do ANYTHING.
But I went! I went and lifted and got in a very very short elliptical workout, but spent extra time stretching myself out. I made it to the coop to grab some staples for the week and a few missing ingredients for things I could make out of what I already have.
While I shopped I sipped on a delicious smoothie because I didn't want to close the window on the required protein I'm supposed to have as recovery after lifting.
