Snow Day! Yesterday I woke up at 5 am to get up to go to spin and looked out the window. It was clear I WAS NOT going anywhere. The streets were not even close to being plowed and the snow was still coming down. I turned on the news and saw that, of course, every other school district besides NYC was closed. I tried to go back to sleep but I was stressing over if I would call out or not (I live so close to school, but it was SO bad out). Finally at 5:35 my friend saved the day and texted me, “no school” so I was able to go back to sleep until 7 because I can’t sleep physically sleep later than that for awhile.
I love snow days because they are an excuse to do nothing. Last snow day I made it to the gym, but it wasn’t this bad this fast. I knew I was staying in all day so I set up camp on the couch. Eventually I did do a Rodney Lee Power Yoga dvd, which was okay. I found it more of a relaxing, stretching yoga than a heart pumping workout. Again, I am so new to this yoga thing, but I did like it. It really made me stretch and I can definitely feel it today. Also I did find time to do some cleaning so we don’t have to do it over the weekend. I was pretty excited I didn’t have to make lunch either because I had packed it for school.
Next week we need to buy more food than last week, because our fridge is bare. (Mind the Jell-O, which doesn’t count because I don’t eat it anymore but I haven’t thrown it away yet.)
- flax crackers
- lentil soup (meatless)
- pumpkin chocolate cookies and muffins (I have to post new version of this recipe, click for old)
