my less serious day: sunday over easy

Nothing about my Sunday is serious.


Skirt: Forever 21; tank: Old Navy; short necklace: street vendor in Montreal; long necklace: LOFT outlet; sandals: OluKai via Zappos.


Since I exercise so much during the week, I typically don't do formal workouts on the weekends. My body needs a chance to recover and I need a chance to be lazy. But, because I knew I had a busy week ahead I fit in a 30-minute run at working pace this morning. And unless couch-sitting counts, that was that.


For me, the weekends not only mean a more relaxed workout schedule, but also a bit of relaxation to my normal eating routine. That means weekends are the time for some splurges including going out to eat and indulging in dessert and alcohol. Having said that, I try to do these things mindfully and in moderation. After all, life is about balance.

Today, I was meeting a close friend for brunch around 11:00, so along with my coffee for a post-run pre-brunch snack I had a bowl of fresh fruit (red and green grapes, pineapple, and cherries).

For brunch, I ate two eggs over easy, sliced tomato, and a slice of honey whole wheat toast. It doesn't look like much, but it was delicious. In the afternoon, I had a a Pink Lady apple, sliced with a tablespoon or so of crunchy peanut butter. And, because it is Sunday and I am crazy like that I had a glass of red wine before dinner.

Dinner was out to eat with friends again and I had a bowl of browned tofu and steamed vegetables over brown rice cooked in soy sauce and a luxurious nutritional yeast gravy. Dessert was a homemade chocolate chip cookie.

And, I'm afraid that brings my Sunday to a close. Let the seriousness begin.
