After my fourth half marathon, I got amazingly lucky with three back-to-back snow days after my day off. It's been splendid. I've enjoyed a lot of coffee+Baileys, Parenthood episodes, and completely resting my body post-race. I've indulged in zero guilt for not working out and taking every moment I can to relish these mindless days.
Bloody Marys are my snow day jam. I recently switched up my signature recipe by adding pickled okra. You guys. This is a game changer. This is one of my favorite ways to start a snow day.
Cuddles with the kitties have probably been my favorite part of snow days (aside from the obvious fact of not having to put on real clothes or be around children for the day). They both love curling up next to me and/or in front of the space heater. Pair those cuddles with a mimosa and a heart-warming episode of Parenthood, I'm in heaven.
While I've been home this week, I've had plenty of time to catch up on my internet reading. Here are some links I've been loving:
+I've been trying to be more mindful and rid myself of a lot of the anxiety of my daily life. I love this five minute meditation that I can do any time of day to refocus and de-stress.
+I love these tips from Christine for staying healthy at home and on the road. I try to live most days like this when I am home, and then allow myself a bit more freedom and "fun" when on the road for a shorter period of time.
+If this doesn't put healthy eating into perspective, I don't know what will. I've taken on the motto of everything in moderation but make healthy choices the majority of the time. It's all about finding what works for you.
