I need to get into a better routine.
I have been super busy this week, and I have clearly not been managing my time well since I've been blogging at 10:00 every night. I mean, let's be real: this is my bed time, y'all.
Today was especially busy: instead of teaching, I attended a district-wide curriculum-revision meeting all day long. It was really, really productive. It was also a lot of fun, as several of us have worked on committees together for quite a while now. MB (holla, yo!) was there, too, so that made it extra fun.
After that meeting, I headed to school for yet another meeting, and then I headed straight to the tennis courts for the most freezing-cold meet ever. (Thankfully we pretty much kicked butt, which meant that the meet ended fairly quickly. Regardless, I could barely feel my fingers when I got home.)
When I got home, I went straight to work: I did dishes, I did laundry, I reorganized my workout clothes (clearly that is an eight-o'clock-on-a-weeknight project...), I cooked a super-late dinner, and I packed.
Because y'all, I'm getting the heck out of dodge tomorrow and am running a half marathon on Sunday!
I may not be prepared mentally or physically, but at least my running gear is. :)
Now that most everything is ready to go for tomorrow, I'm chilling on the couch, sandwiched by kitties -- one of whom is snoring so, so loudly:
Breakfast: Even though I was able to sleep in an extra 30 minutes due to my meeting starting later than school, I was running late. So, I ran to Bruegger's for a bagel. This was somewhat purposeful, as I also want to see how my tummy does with bread prior to race day. I still haven't figured out Paleo fueling, so I think I'm going to go with a bagel (and peanut butter and a banana) early, early, early on Sunday.
Also, I got a salted caramel coffee at Bruegger's. They don't have fancy coffee drinks there, but they do have the best brewed coffee of anywhere that I have been. This was no exception. GO.
The curriculum team headed to Star Bar for lunch, so I ordered my current favorite: the Sesame-Crusted Tuna Salad. As usual, it was superb.
Then, we walked across the street to Creme, and this is where it all fell apart.
Yep: Creme is a cupcake and dessert boutique.
I mean, seriously. Is that beautiful, or what?
I exhibited zero self-control today and ordered this:
However, I learned my lesson: I felt so sick for about four hours afterwards, and I didn't eat anything for eight hours afterwards.
But the real kicker? It was only okay.
And truthfully, I'm getting a little sick to my stomach even thinking about the sugar overload that I consumed.
So yes, a lesson was learned.
Dinner: I didn't take a picture of dinner because it was far from exciting: two hot dogs (Whole30-compliant) and sauteed sweet potato wedges.
And now, friends, I think it's time for me to join my passed out kitty cat. G'night!
