Happy Thursday! Is anyone else ridiculously tired today, or is it just me?? Before I talk about a delicious smoothie I did have for breakfast, let's finish recaping yesterday :).
Hubs gets up @ 4:30am and out the door by 5am everyday. Usually I'm able to fall back asleep until at least 5:30-6:00, however that was not the case yesterday. For some reason I was wide awake and sleep was no longer an option. I decided to make myself useful, and did the dishes & laundry from the day prior. You would've thought a train had come through our house by the looks of it. It's rarely ever dirty (I kinda sorta have ocd when it comes to things being neat), but somehow with hubs being home and us being lazy all day prior it got completely outta control. I was trying to hold off on breakfast until 7, but ended up eating around 6:30... my belly couldn't wait any longer.

The smoothie consisted of:
1 cup frozen almond milk, 2 frozen bananas, tsp of pb & some puffin cereal on top
After breakfast, I read blogs/wrote a post, answered e-mails and then headed to the gym. I love my gym; it's small and not many people go there... however I do dislike my mile walk to and from w/ the 130 degree heat!! I completed 9 miles in exactly one hour & 9 minutes... and no I didn't run that extra minute to make it an even 70 minutes, oh well :).
Once I got home, I thought it was probably a good idea to shower since I was quite the sweaty mess (I decided to spare you a picture... you're welcome :]).
Where we live, it's an apartment building filled with other civillian contractors from the states. We all have the same furniture, the same decorations, the same everything. Well hubby and I've slowly started to get things to make it a bit more homie. I mean we are going to be here for quite sometime, it would be nice to have our own things. We're not in any rush though. Well yesterday I decided to finally open the picture frames we bought the other day, and put them up around the house. It seems like all of the pictures I did bring with me, are so outdated. Not quite sure how to get new ones printed off over here, but for now the 2 year old pictures will have to do. (I'm hoping to take some pictures of our home in Kuwait over her soon, so be on the look out!)
After my little bit of decorating, I had lunch. You know the usual, salad with some tomatoes, cucumber & turkey.. ohh and I did throw in a clementine as well. I was feeling pretty spontaneous lol.
|I know my photography skills are.. PATHETIC!|
My afternoon was very uneventful to say the least. Did a bit more cleaning, and eventually started on dinner... which will be unpictured, but it was amazing. I followed this recipe from Skinny Taste almost exactly. Only changes I made were omitting the mushrooms (no mushroom fans in this house), and used Apple Cider Vinegar instead of the Red Wine Vinegar. It turned out delicious. Even hubby liked it :) On the side I had some of my leftover edamame from my birthday dinner.
After dinner, hubby and I had a little project to do. We ordered a little black linen cabinet from JcPenney the other day and it finally arrived. Like I said, were trying to make it more homie. Well, our bathroom had no storage @ all and we couldn't find anything. After almost an hour & half, we had a finished product. It's a perfect fit in our bathroom...
|So simple & cute :)|
After that, we just laid in bed and played our usual nights of hearts. This morning I actually slept in until 6:30!! Kinda a big deal, because lately my sleep has been completely off and I've only been getting a few hours a night.. i know not good! Not to sure what's going on, but it's driving me nuts. Heres is the reasoning behind my day starting off amazing...
|Insert: Blueberry Smoothie. |
1 c. frozen almond milk, 1 c. frozen blueberries and 1 tbsp. pb
This may be one of the best smoothies I've had in a long time! The other day I bought some frozen blueberries, not even knowing if I liked them or not.. and uh, what took me so long to try!! I could seriously eat it for every meal. Even though I've never had blueberries or blueberry cheesecake before, I'm just gonna say it tastes like blueberry cheesecake :)
After about an hour and half I decided to head to the gym for a workout. I had orginally planned on doing an arm/core workout after 6 miles, but let's just say that plan got completely scratched. Just walking to the gym ended up being a workout in itself. Like I said earlier, i'm tired.. my body, my mind, everything! I was still able to knock out the planned 6 miles, but then called it quits. My legs felt so tired, and just knew there wasn't a reason to continue. Now, I'm lying here about to make lunch.
