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?
