Good morning! I did something glorious for a weekday. I slept in! Well, I tried to get up early twice, but for some reason I was just way too tired. I made the executive decision that today would be a rest day from the gym and that I was going into work late. It’s pretty rare that I actually get to enjoy the sun coming up in the morning, but I felt like I needed it today!
My mornings are usually so rushed: get up in the dark, go to the gym, come home in the dark, get ready in the dark, hurry up and make breakfast, blog, then rush to work. If I’m not ten minutes early to work I feel late. It’s craziness! Since I was pooped this morning, I decided to take my time. One hour late to work isn’t going to make the place crumble.
Last night Riley and I went on a little date night. We went to one of my favorite restaurants, Baker’s Crust, in Williamsburg for a quick dinner. I got a fennel sausage, goat cheese, and onion pizza and it was delicious. I know Riley will enjoy all the leftovers!
After dinner we went to see Gravity, finally. We wanted to get to it before it left the theaters and our local movie theater has cheaper tickets on Tuesdays. It was awesome! I can definitely see why you need to see it in the theater because the visuals are really what make the movie interesting.
This morning I enjoyed not being up crazy early and took my time getting up. Breakfast today was a slice of homemade pumpkin bread that I made on Sunday (recipe here), a PB granola bar and a glass of unsweetened vanilla almond milk.
After eating, I leashed Bella up and took her for a 20 minute walk. Since it’s a no-workout day I’m going to try and squeeze in as much walking as I can. The weather was crisp and cool and it felt great to be outside!
I know Bella loved getting a morning walk with me, too. It’s not something she usually gets on weekday mornings!
Now I’m off to get ready for work! Maybe to make this morning extra awesome I’ll stop at Starbucks for a latte on my way 🙂
Hope you all have a wonderful day!
Do you plan your rest days for the week? I usually don’t because I never know when I might wake up exhausted, like I did today. I like having the flexibility to take my rest days based on how I feel.
