Sleep Please!

Did anyone else have a sloooow morning?  I woke up to my 5 a.m. alarm, but I accidentally fell back asleep until Cleo’s purring woke me up again at 5:19.  Whoops!  I must admit, this is the first time I was happy one of my furry children woke me from my blissful slumber.

I headed off to the gym and began my new workout.  Well, I actually started the June workout yesterday, but I didn’t really give it 100%.  Today I pushed myself a little harder.  I did 35 min on the stairclimber and finished up with leg work.  Don’t worry, I’ll post the workout later this week.  It’s a good one; I can already tell!

I want to share a recipe with you really quickly.  No, I didn’t make it up on my own.  You can get it at A Year of Slow Cooking, and it’s called Balsamic Chicken with Spring Veg.  It’s not my favorite, but it was perfect for a slow day off from work.  While the crock pot cooked all day, I was able to prep other foods for the week, run errands, and do some laundry.  (The fun doesn’t stop.  Gag.)  Anyway, Kevin likes this one, and we ate it with brown rice.  I also substituted low-sodium soy sauce and a bit of black pepper for worcesteshire sauce due to the HFCS.  It’ll feed us 2.5 nights.  Hurray for leftovers!

Now that I’m back from vacation and life is resuming its normal routine (sad to be back, but happy to get back to the routine), I can finally accept the Smile Award given to me by Kaila at The Healthy Helper.  Thanks Sweetie!

The Rules:

  1. Smile!
  2. Write 3 Things You Like About Your Looks
  3. Write 3 Things You Appreciate About Your Personality
  4. Write Something You Find Beautiful in Other People
  5. Award As Many Other People As You Like & Let Them Know

Here it goes…

  1. Smile!
  2. I like my hair, calves, and cheekbones.
  3. I like my laid-back attitude, my sense of humor, and my smilieness (new word?).
  4. I find people’s smiles beautiful.
  5. Due to how busy I am today (always hard getting back in the swing of things), I’ll skip this for now with *hopes* of sharing additional link love at some point in the future!

Did everyone else have a good weekend?  Did you have a hard time getting back into the swing of things?

  1. Smiley-ness. I like it. [But I have to hyphenate it for reasons I cannot ascertain.]

    And you SHOULD smile…you ARE beautiful!

    • Thanks for the compliment, and more importantly, thanks for allowing me to butcher the English language. If Shakespeare could make up words, I can too.

  2. Yay! So happy you did the award! You definitely do have gorgeous hair!!!

  3. i LOVE the stairclimber – always gives a great workout and sweat.
    smilieness – definitely should be a new dictionary word! a good sense of humour is one of the best assets in life, i believe!

  4. The first day back from a trip always seems to get sucked up by to-do list stuff for me! Sometimes that makes it almost easier to do stuff like prep food for the week ahead. I’ve had veggies roasting in the oven while I catch up on work emails today.

    Hope you enjoy the rest of your day : )

  5. I slept past my alarm this morning, too. A workout could have happened, but it wouldn’t have been that great and I think the sleep was more important this time around…

  6. I think people look most beautiful when they smile, too! I hope you had a fabulous vacation!
