Happy Friday! I love my job, I really do – but some Fridays just feel like they deserve a little celebration, you know what I mean?
I have eaten the same thing for dinner every night this week: salmon or turkey, roasted green beans (I am sad for myself for all the years I spent just steaming them), and smashed potatoes.
I may have had the same thing for dessert every night this week as well: banana with peanut butter & chocolate chips. The perfect food. I am a creature of habit.
My alarms have been sneaking up earlier and earlier. The longer week day miles during marathon training sometimes means that I get up early to work before I run, or to get my run done before I start working. It depends on the day, but lately it has been early no matter what. Which is fine by me, I would much rather get up early than stay up late.
I had the pool all to myself yesterday – which is always SO nice. The gym I go to just has 3 lanes, which means as soon as there are more than 3 people, you have to start splitting lanes. I don’t mind the sharing part, its just that sometimes swimming in a straight line to make sure you don’t have a collision can be hard!
My uncle told me that he got my grandma a power plate. He was telling me that it is really good for bone health and a lot of other things. I remembered that there is one in my gym, so I decided to hop on it after my swim yesterday. I am not sure how I feel about it, but I am all about bone health, so I guess 7 minutes of standing on it can’t hurt anything, right? The vibrating is definitely weird!
I have been wanting to try this flavor of La Croix for so long, but didn’t want to commit to a whole box in case I didn’t like it. Now I am sad I waited so long. Big fan. Plus it matches my nails & my front porch flowers!
Lastly, I am trying the Drunk Elephant Night Bright & Rise + Glow duo samples from Sephora. It is CRAZY expensive for the full size versions, but people rave about it. Since I am going to be 3-0 this year, I am using that as an excuse to try all the skin care things. Hahaha I am too good at rationalization.
Bennie says have a great weekend!
Have you ever stood on a Power Plate?
