Monday is here yet again and if anyone else is in the “survival job” mode of their 20s, you know that it really isn’t a new week, but a continuation from Saturday and Sunday, the busiest days of our job.
I had a fairly good week and felt I got a lot done. Let me first give some love to Meghan for the link-up and the reminder to congratulate myself for each accomplishment, no matter how small.
[Side note, I’ve been doing this since November 10th! #dedicated]
I got many things done for my blog this week. My friend designed a new logo for me which I LOVE but am waiting to unveil once I decide how I want the theme to look. She is so talented and I can’t wait for you all to see the new face of Eating Pavement.
I posted two recipes:
I finally got on Bloglovin and updated my profile and contact info.
I’m getting better at remembering to edit photos and actually take them. The blog is still a work in progress, but so am I 🙂
I put in some solid time at both CTB and the running store this week. Even though it was slow at times, I am reading a book called Anatomy for Runners which is helping my sale knowledge. My boss is also taking extra time to teach me while we are there together. Even though he is kind of soft spoken, he is an excellent teacher.
CTB has been a bit slower this week because the students are gone and it was really cold. The wind keeps most people tucked away in their offices for lunch, so we make due having fun together when it’s slow.
My boss is a huge Patriots fan and so on Sunday we watched the Patriots-Broncos game together for a couple hours that afternoon. Mind you we don’t normally do that, but it was a special occasion 🙂
Oh, and we broke the $15,000 espresso machine. Go us.
I had three solid workouts this week and one I am really proud of. That 16 miler with 6 miles at marathon pace and faster was CLUTCH for my confidence this week. I felt really great all day.
I did some 800m intervals that always test my lung capacity at 5AM
And some 10 minute intervals at marathon pace. I look really happy in that picture. I will remember that tomorrow morning because I have a scary run tomorrow. My lung and legs will feel it.
I might make this my new blog photo. What do ya’ll think?
I made chickpea brownies again on Friday but put a layer of Nutella in the middle. Then I topped it with more chocolate. My coworkers now expect me to make them whenever we have chickpeas. Good thing they are so easy!
I made Maple-Cinnamon Cashew butter on Saturday and it’s really good. Hard to pair with things though…so I’ve been eating it with a spoon. No shame.
This photo made me laugh thinking about all the snow NYC and DC have been getting. I think God we have not gotten that much snow. I do not do well with cabin fever!
How was your week?
What is your favorite thing to do when stuck inside?
