Check out this weather we had today!?! Damn. I’ll take sunshine and cloud and sixty degrees over twenties and snow any day. Beautiful.
Not that I can say I really went outside and enjoyed it. I again spent the day in my pajamas doing school work on the couch and watching more of The Vampire Diaries. Despite my lack of sun-induced vitamin D production, I got a bunch of work done. Or at least enough to feel like I had a worthwhile day.
I woke up on my own around 9am and lazed around until finally pulling myself out of bed to go to the gym. I did 35 minutes on the elliptical and then went to the weight room to do some ab work. It was brief, I wasn’t really in the mood to work my core. I had had my fill of cardio and was just wanting some food. Home in my kitchen I indulged a craving for cereal. In my bowl: Fiber One, Life, a dash of vanilla almond milk, cottage cheese, some Stevia, and Trader Joe’s coffee chocolate grinder.
A few bites in I realized I needed some more milk.
A few more pours later I scarfed down the whole bowl and proceeded to completely blow the rest of the morning. Around noon I finally showered, haha, and then did some work before breaking for lunch at 2:00. I spiced up the leftovers of the disappointing egg salad from a few days ago with paprika, garlic, and onion powder. A nice dash of salt rounded it out with some cheddar cheese on my sandwich. On the side: carrots, tomatoes, and crunchies.
I continued to work as I watched the rain roll in during the late afternoon. At some point I called my parents and chatted. They happened to be with my maternal grandmother so I got a chance to catch up with her too. Admittedly it was probably one of the most lucid and interactive conversations I have had with her in a while. It was very nice. Several episodes of vampires later, I warmed up dinner in the form of last night’s leftovers minus some of the extra marinade, plus some light sour cream.
Man have I been on a sour cream kick lately! This stuff is just too good. The tempeh and the quinoa were just as good the second time around. A good dinner overall. For dessert a while later, I made myself a paleo mug brownie with almond butter, cocoa powder, and some egg white.
I topped it with some non-paleo Arctic Zero (chocolate peanut butter flavor), lite chocolate syrup, and 63% dark chocolate chips. Oh the chocolate-y goodness. Delicious dessert. Now I’m back to devouring episodes for the rest of the night. There are moments I think I’m really, super duper lazy but then I remember that I work incredibly hard during the week so let’s call this justified and well-earned laziness. I’m sure I’ll enjoy it.
Question: What is your best lazy pleasure?
