I woke up this morning feeling a little under the weather. And possible pink eye. I've been up for awhile now (and I've had my coffee) and I no longer think it's pink eye, but I am still feeling pretty low on energy, so I'm going to keep this post short and sweet: a few scattered thoughts for Monday.
1. I think I worked out a little too hard this weekend. Last Friday, I mentioned some of my favorite things about Colorado including the beauty in the mountains. We spent the weekend in Breckenridge, and this was my first time catching a glimpse of ski resort, without the snow, in the summer time.
I found it weird to see ski runs without snow. Maybe it's just me.
The other reason we went up to Breckenridge is to get in some scenic hiking. Which we did. We went on a four mile hike on Saturday morning and another four mile hike on Sunday morning. I think the back-to-back hikes have left me needing to recover.
2. My husband has fully embraced eating Paleo. When I switched to eating Paleo this past February, my husband was happy to eat the Paleo dinners I started preparing every night, but he continued to eat non-Paleo for his breakfasts and lunches. Since he finished his marathon back in April, he's put on quite a bit of weight and is now looking for any way to get this extra weight off. He is now eating more Paleo than I am (I've backed off a bit because of my pregnancy). Last night, I was too tired to make dinner, so he spiralized a zucchini and ate it with some pork & sirloin ragu I had stashed in the freezer!
3. What I'm Reading: Shanghai Girls. I've had this book on the bookshelf for over a year -- I'm not even sure why I bought it to begin with, but I haven't been interested in picking up the book for the longest time. I found the book again last week and gave it another try and now I am completely sucked in. A few months ago I had a World War II obsession, reading both fiction and non-fiction books, and this story starts off in Shanghai in 1937, just as WWII is starting to pick up -- hence my interest in giving it another chance.
How was your weekend? Are you reading anything fun right now?
