Catching Up on a Monday!
Hey there! Happy Monday!
Waking up on Monday mornings is always so hard, but Mondays are actually my favorite work day of the week. I have very specific things I do on Mondays and I totally take comfort is that routine. I love a good schedule!
Cecil does too. His schedule is the same every day though: sleep, eat, sleep, sleep, eat, be perfect. Something new he’s adding to his routine is showing off the one toenail that he wouldn’t let me clip (see pic above).
Today I thought we could just catch up on a few things!
1. You Must Try These 5 Ingredient, No Bake Peanut Butter Energy Bites
There are very few energy bars that I like, and I often skip eating something before a run because I’m not sure what to have.
This weekend I finally got around to making these 5 Ingredient PB Energy Bites. I’ve seen them all over Pinterest and Instagram and wanted to see what the hype was all about.
So simple, so delicious!
2/3 cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
1 cup old fashioned oats
1/2 cup ground flaxseed (I skipped this)
2 tbs honey
All you do is mix all of the ingredients in a bowl then let the mixture chill in the fridge for 15 minutes. After 15 minutes take the mixture out of the fridge and form the balls and you’re done!
Adam gives these his stamp of approval too!
2. Summer Weather in February
This weekend it was 80 degrees out and my body was not happy. It’s hard to believe that in other parts of the country it’s snowing and here I’m literally melting.
In fact, on Wednesday the high is predicted to be 87*F which is just legit summer weather.
When they said we would have a warmer than usual winter I wasn’t quite expecting it to be this bad :(.
3. I’m Becoming a Yogi 🙂
I’ve done at least one five minute yoga video every day for a week from the Jasyoga site. I’m learning new hip stretches which is exciting!
We don’t have a TV in our gym/my office yet so I just swivel my computer monitor to follow along with the videos!
4. I Built a Bookcase!
Adam and I bought a bookcase from IKEA a couple of weeks ago and it’s been sitting in the box since then. Adam’s been super busy with work and just wants to relax in his free time.
I totally get that but I wanted the bookcase built so I decided to do it myself even though I’m generally not good with this kind of thing. Every piece of furniture I’ve ever built in the past has come out wobbly.
Apparently assembly of this bookcase can be completed within five minutes. It took me about two hours but I got it done!
Every time I would get frustrated I would take a little break to do something else and then I’d go back to building the bookcase with a fresh perspective. I think that definitely helped… otherwise I probably would have just given up.
Now I am excited for the best part: decorating the bookcase! 🙂
5. Curb Your Enthusiasm Slays Me
Adam and I started watching Curb Your Enthusiasm a few weeks ago and we’re obsessed with it now. If you like Seinfeld you will love Curb. The main character is Larry David, who is one of the co-creator’s of Seinfield.
I look forward to watching an episode every night! One of our favorite series of all time is Arrested Development (we re-watch the entire series every summer) but this one is turning out to be a close second!
If you’re looking for something to watch definitely give this show a shot. Even though it’s old-ish all of the jokes are timeless.
Also, PSA: The Mindy Project comes back on Tuesday <3. This is going to be a good week!
