As someone mentioned on Instagram, it must have been the fact that it was Friday the 13th but I felt in a funk all morning.
I did start it off with a delicious breakfast and view of the snow. I don’t like the snow when I’m out in it, but sometimes sitting inside watching it fall is very peaceful.
Wes had to take a practice test for his upcoming test on Monday, so I spent most of the morning working on stuff for the blog and getting some work done around the house.
After a couple hours I was getting restless. I still hadn’t decided if I wanted to get in a workout or take a rest day.
I started to realize that the only way I was going to kick my “stuck in house” funk was to go to the gym. I just made sure I would take it very easy with whatever I decided to do.
I decided to just walk today and walked for a total of 60 minutes.
I stayed at 3.6 mph and a 1% incline the whole time. I even brought a book to read which would insure that I was taking it easy.
Wes and I headed to the grocery store to pick up a few things for dinner after we left the gym.
He’s been really having a craving for pasta salad recently, so I decided to pick up a few things to make it for him tonight before his long run tomorrow.
This was what the pasta salad looked like before it was all mixed up.
It was delicious! I only had a small amount, but Wes really enjoyed it. I was trying to make a “knock off” of a pasta salad they have on the salad bar at Wegmans (our local grocery store). He raves about it every time.
I won’t say it is quite to that level, but it was good and we have lots leftover to last us throughout the week.
I will be sharing the recipe on the blog very soon!
There may have been a small treat made last night too.
I baked up a batch of Cake Mix Cookie Bars. I am actually saving them for tomorrow, but Wes and I split one and they were so delicious!
They are super easy and great if you need a quick dessert for dinner, kids, or a holiday party.
I am super excited for another Saturday. I am doing another test run today (I haven’t run since Monday). Even though I have taken a good amount of time off, it still always makes me nervous.
Keep your fingers crossed for me!
Did you bake or cook anything this weekend?
Do you have a go-to dessert to make if needed for a party or get together?
