couch day



It hasn't rained this hard in months. I'm kind of enjoying it since I planned to spend today studying for the GRE. I wanted to go for a 4 mile walk today. I had even planned out my route on google maps last night but maybe its better if I just do a workout video instead. I love when it's rainy and stormy outside and you don't have to go out for any reason. I was thinking of going to the bookstore to look around, just to have a reason to get out of the house so I don't go crazy from spending hours in here studying geometry.

Yesterday I went to the dermatologist to get a skin check done. He did a biopsy of one of my moles and the stitches are kind of annoying. I can't wait for it to heal. He also told me not to go running for 3 days to avoid the stitches riping open. I guess I'll have to squeeze this week's 5k training into the end of week.

Veggie Rainbow


I made this salad this morning to use up some of the many veggies in the fridge. I just chopped them and added a tablespoon of light olive oil and another tablespoon of white wine vingar with a little salt and pepper. It tasted great after being in the fridge for a few hours.

I worked out for two hours this morning. I decided to start a new strength training program. It was pretty challenging and I wasn't even using that much weight. I also started week 2 of my 5K training. It was an interval run of 90 seconds of jogging with 2 minutes of walking. It wasn't too bad except when the time to run came during a hill. Whew. Tomorrow I'm going to try and get in a 4 mile walk and some yoga. I'm going to miss working out, whenever I want, when I have to go back to work next week. I can't believe this time next week will be my last vacation day. I'm so nervous about going back.

I'm off to study for the GRE now and try to not freak out that I only have 3 more weeks until I retake it. Then I'm going to go to the dermatologist to get my moles checked out. I hope everything looks good. Afterwards I'm going to meet up with Katie to get some coffee. Busy busy day.

Lazy Sunday


A few pictures of the apartment. I sewed these new curtains since our cats destroyed the blinds. I also reorganized my sewing area and got rid of two large bags of fabric. I have some much fabric. I really need to sew more often.

Today I am just relaxing. We watched a hoarders while we ate breakfast this morning and it really got me in the mood to clean. I scrubbed the microwave and throughly cleaned the stove top. Philip and I are considering going for a run at the park later. I also want to head over to Goodwill today to drop some things off.

sore feet

I just got back from running. I've finished week one of my training for a 5k. Early in the summer, I started to train for a 10k but it ended up being overwhelming. I thought I was in pretty good shape from working out regularly on the elliptical machine but running outside and uphill is much harder. This Sunday I'll start week 2, hopefully with Philip. I'm going to try and talk him into going back to the park to run on the trail around Lake Washington.

Other than working out, I've been studying like crazy. I'm reviewing about 30 new words a day to try and expand my vocabulary for the GRE. Oh how I dislike the GRE. I've spent the last week surrounded by my homemade flashcards, reading and reviewing. I'm actually feeling pretty good about the verbal section. I've been doing some practice questions and scoring well. Math is another story. So much information. I'm going to try my hardest and hope it all works out for the best.

Now I am off to shower and run to the store for a few things.

rainy afternoon

I love Molly Moon ice cream. The salted caramel is my favorite flavor. I was craving it last night but to save money I made some at home. I made my usual banana ice cream and added a touch of sea salt and caramel sauce, it turned out great. Almost as good as the original. I love this gray t-shirt that they sell at the shop. I need to get one.

It is a pretty rainy and chilly day here in Seattle. Philip and I are being lazy today and so far have watched a lot of TV. We might go running later, on a trail that runs along Lake Washington, if the weather clears up. I've been spending most of the morning online looking around. Here are some websites I'm enjoying right now.

Philip brought home all these veggies for me tonight. I love summer veggies so much. I'm not sure what to do with all those tomatoes but I'm sure I'll figure something out.

So very awake


It is almost 3am, no more evening naps for me. Philip went to bed at 7pm and I've spent way too much time online today. My eyes are burning and I've been researching George Foreman grills for far too long. I want to get one to grill vegetables. I found a recipe for grilled eggplant stacks that looks incredible. I really should force myself to get to sleep.
