Hey everyone! It’s been a few days! That always seems to happen… I lose steam and/or other responsibilities take over my life in the later part of each work week.
Whether you live on the east coast or not, you may have heard about this pesky storm called Hurricane Sandy…
So far, we haven’t seen much action here is southeastern PA, although it isn’t supposed to pick up until tomorrow. I’ve heard that many schools in NJ and NY are closed Monday and Tuesday, but no word on what local districts will do. I feel like the northeast is notorious for blowing storms out of proportion, but based on the weather reports this does seem pretty legitimate… guess we’ll just wait and see!
Besides waiting for Sandy’s arrival, nothing else too exciting has been happening!
Friday night, I decided to venture out and complete my grocery shopping for the week, assuming the stores would be swamped Saturday and today. I waited until about 7:30PM (I wanted to avoid the post-work crowd) then I headed to Target and the grocery store. It was definitely more crowded than usual, but it wasn’t unbearable.
Sadly, the bananas were rather picked over! I got the last decent bunch, so I’m good for a few days.
Saturday morning I finally made it to spin class; I hadn’t been in weeks! Afterwards I completed a quick, 1 mile run, then I came home and cleaned the whole house.
This morning I headed back to the gym for another treadmill run (it was a little rainy this morning!) and finished up my workout with 10 minutes on the Arc Trainer. Before I went to the gym, I fueled up with a dark chocolate cherry SOYJOY bar… yum!
This helped me to feel satisfied throughout my workout without weighing me down… a key factor to any pre-workout snack!
By the time I got home, I was ready for breakfast, and I got to work on some cranberry baked oatmeal…
Clearly, the recipe isn’t perfected yet, but I hope it will be soon and I’ll share it when it is!
The rest of my day has been spent writing a paper for my grad class, doing some laundry, and writing lesson plans. A whole stack of grading is still waiting for me, so that’s next on my list!
I’m not sure when I’ll be back. Of course I’m crossing my fingers (and toes!) that we won’t lose power, but it seems almost inevitable at this point… maybe we’ll luck out though! Stewie looks a bit concerned…
He hates going outside in the rain!
Tell me about your weekend! Did you have to make any special preparations for Hurricane Sandy?
