I had a glorious 5 day weekend complete with all the excitement and anticipation of Christmas. Matt and I were lucky enough to be off the hook for any Christmas breakfast get-togethers, so we just slept in and enjoyed the morning to ourselves.We did attend 2 Christmas dinners and a Christmas Eve cocktail event. Lots of food. Lots of drink. Lots of family. Lots of gifts.
Now I’m back in the usual swing of things, that is, for the next 2 days until New Year’s. Matt and I are going to be hosting a New Year’s Eve wine and cheese at our place. I’m baking fresh crackers for the event and they’re in the oven as we speak! (More on those another time)
Now that I’m back at the (oh so quiet) cubicle farm I’m getting back into the swing of things with my eating and I’m actually getting dressed in the morning rather than just bumming around in PJs. I’m slowly easing my way into getting comfortable in my body again.
In Fitness, I hit the gym this afternoon for a lower body workout at the gym. In and out in 45 minutes. My legs were nice and loose after doing some Bryan Kest yoga with my friend Sarah last night which helped, but still a bit sore from a 6 mile run yesterday and an 8 mile run (8 miles!! Wahoo!) on Monday.
In Fashion, this morning I resisted the urge to just throw on a frumpy sweater and embraced a tailored blazer. I’m digging the blazers because I think they can be pretty figure flattering. Does my outfit today even match? If not, I’ll blame the fact that I did get dressed in the dark. Seriously.
In Food, I chowed down on some leftover pureed rutabaga for breakfast. Not quite the same without the caramelized onions, but the warm and creaminess made a good breakfast.
Lunch was kippered herring, a pear with peanut butter, and some soup that I threw together with arame and maitake mushrooms in homemade veggie broth.
Dinner was scavenged at my dad and nonna’s place. Some hummus with pita and carrots, some leftover Chinese, a banana. I did find this winner. I think they were a Christmas gift to my dad.
Candied Chestnuts! Has anyone ever had these? They’re delicious. Soft, nutty, and very sweet. Mmmm… I ate 2 too many They made me happy.
