Good morning! I’m always happy when Friday rolls around, but this week that happiness is quadrupled. This week was just not the funnest, work-wise, and it’s kind of worn me down. I’m very much looking forward to two days away from it all.
Yesterday was another one of those crazy busy days that kept me from accurately documenting my food, but it wasn’t all that thrilling – Green Monster, lots of coffee, salad and a Macadamia Nut Clif bar.
It’s really funny to me that I like these, because I really don’t enjoy any other Clif bars at all (I think they’re too chalky and chewy, or something) and I’m not a huge fan of macadamia nuts (unless they’re chocolate-covered Macadamia nuts waiting for me in my hotel room after a night of vacation boozing, which is another story all together).
However, throw the two together and for some reason I’m all over it.
It had been a few years since my last facial, so I don’t exactly have much to compare it to but I think they did a really good job.
I will say, however, that I felt like the lady kind of shorted me on some “extras” that were listed on the facial description (neck massage and the like) because I had a Groupon.
I guess that’s fair though, since I did get less than $50 off the original service price. I tipped generously, but she didn’t know that until the end.
After I was done getting pampered, I hightailed it straight to the gym to run my 3.0 miles per my training plan. I had to do it right then, or else it wasn’t going to get done.
If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a million times, but seriously guys – the treadmill KILLS me. I hate it. With my soul. I made it through, but it wasn’t a fun run.
So far I haven’t been dealing with many aches or pains since I’ve started training, but yesterday my right shin was acting up a bit, so I decided to ice and elevate.
In case you were wondering, why yes that is a bag of frozen vegetables, and yes, I did use them to make my dinner after I was done icing. Gross or brilliant? You tell me.
I saw these veggies on Lisa’s blog quite awhile ago and thought they sounded delish so when I saw them the other day, I made sure to pick up a bag.
I scrambled one egg and two egg whites and then sauteed the veggies together with the eggs to make some yummy quesadilla filling.
This tasted so much better than what you’d expect from frozen veggies and a tortilla. The flavors were amazing, and with a little bit of melty cheddar cheese – I was in heaven.
The meal was so filling that I didn’t even have room for dessert. I did, however, decide to finish off the last of my Sam Adam’s Noble Pils.
This was Sam Adams’ spring seasonal brew, and the lone beer has been hanging out in my fridge for far too long. It was quite refreshnig, but a Summer Ale would have been better.
Have you ever bought a Groupon? Did you feel there was a difference in the service level at all?
