Snoooowwww! Steve’s car was covered in snow on Saturday and the doors were frozen shut. It took a good 5 minutes to get them to open!
We just did errands Saturday morning, (after getting the car in road-ready condition), and I had a juice made with kale, celery, carrot, lemon, apple, and strawberries, plus an Ezekiel English Muffin with an egg and ketchup before heading out.
Salad for lunch: mixed greens, half of an avocado, strawberries, and dressing made with Meyer lemon juice, maple syrup, and walnut oil (plus salt and pepper). This is my favourite salad right now, it is slightly sweet and sooo good.
Unfortunately Saturday was one of those days where I just felt “off”- I was tired despite getting enough sleep, didn’t know what I wanted to do or what I wanted to eat. Which means that “dinner” on Saturday was incredibly pathetic and a result of me not wanting to cook or even eat anything. I didn’t even grab a picture, I just kind of picked at a small plate of Trader Joe’s Flax Crackers with Four Fruits Preserves and Mighty Maple Peanut Butter, a Pineapple Chobani with Kashi Go-Lean Crunch, some Brown Rice Chips, and chocolate. Meh. The chocolate was the best part of this meal I do hate having off-days though.
Sunday was better, I had to work in the morning so I packed some breakfast and lunch to take with me.
I also had a cup of coffee (my first one in a week! I am trying to lessen my caffeine dependence) with half a banana before leaving.
This bar was really delicious! And it held me really well until lunch, which was an Ezekiel English Muffin with an egg and organic ketchup, and some carrot sticks with spinach artichoke hummus. Yum.
Steve picked me up after work and we headed into Boston to go skating at the Boston Common. It was FREEZING cold but a lot of fun! I used to figure skate competitively (nowhere near GC styles but still a big time commitment) but I hadn’t been on the ice at all for a good three years before yesterday. It was a weird feeling but fun! Steve and I are going to try to go skating more often, I’d love to get some more of my skills back (though I don’t think I’ll be doing axels anytime soon lol).
Anyway it was an outdoor ice surface and it was cold!!! Steve gave me his coat but after an hour I could not feel my toes and needed to get warm, asap. So we drove back home and I made a dinner filled with warming spices to bring me back from frostbite
This was perfect! Brought my toes back to life. Steve and I spent the rest of the evening watching Lord of the Rings, which I used to be obsessed with. I could quote full passages from Fellowship. Jealous? Yeah, I thought so.
