Good morning all! I feel very refreshed today for two reasons: 1) I went to bed last night at 9:30, and 2) It’s my birthday today!!
To be honest, I haven’t really gotten very excited about my birthday in a while, but I am feigning the excitement for you all. I’m not sure what if any birthday plans I have for tonight – maybe go out to dinner or at the very least, convince Hubby to make me dinner.
As far as a recap of yesterday, breakfast was very good. Oatmeal with banana and peanut butter in my brand new bowl that my momma gave me for my birthday (thank you!). The old red ones were looking atrocious and she agreed it was time to retire them.
Lunch was a peanut butter and apricot jelly sammy (I am loving the apricot lately). I also had a side of carrots.
My afternoon snacks were a blueberry Chobani yogurt and an apple. Boring – no pics.
After work, Hubby and I set out for a nice WINDY run along the East River promenade. I swear, every time I run with my husband the weirdos come out: the man talking to himself and gesticulating, the strange girl dancing enthusiastically by herself and singing, the car that veered off the road unexpectedly and came to a screeching halt, etc. Seriously, every time we run together we encounter strange people.
My Garmin was acting up and didn’t start working until more than .5 miles into our run. Here are our stats from our 4+ mile run, of which only part was captured.
Mile 1 – 8:33
Mile 2 – 8:03
Mile 3 – 8:27
.86 – 6:54
Total mileage – 3.86 in 31:59. Average pace – 8:17 minute miles.
I think in total, we probably ran about 4.5 miles. I am taking tonight off as a rest day and a birthday treat.
After our run, I had planned to make chicken and rice and soon realized we had no rice. Second choice was chicken and pasta. I also threw some carrots into the mix as well.
After dinner, Bill proceeded to become engrossed in the Stanley Cup hockey game and I think Murphy wanted some attention. When Bill finally picked him up, he showed off a little bit.
Big kitty stretch!
Like I said, my night ended pretty quickly when I turned in at 9:30 p.m. I was exhausted from getting very little sleep on Sunday night. I am feeling a little more rested and awake today.
So what about you guys? What is the best birthday you can remember? And what do you like to do on your b-day?
Have a great day all!
