As much as I try to pretend that today is Sunday, having a Monday off of work never feels quite as relaxing as a Friday or normal weekend day.
I woke up bright and early to make myself a two-egg, cheese, and jelly bagelwich before taking Mochi to the groomers.
It’s been awhile since he’s gone, and he was starting to look kind of homeless.
He absolutely HATES being bathed and groomed, but beauty comes at a price, and he has to suck it up if he wants me to allow him to sleep on the bed.
While he was getting cleaned up, I headed to the gym to try to make it to a BodyPump class. Well that was a total failure because the list and the waiting list were both completely full thanks to the holiday. I decided it was a sign for me to take the rest day I had planned in my schedule and came back home to make some blog changes. Notice the difference? ;)
So, in honor of the Golden Globes that I did not care to watch, here are my food awards.
- Overnight Oats
– Egg Sandwich
– Hot Oatmeal w/Almond Butter
I had to go with the egg sandwich. I rarely get up early enough to make it, so it’s a real treat when I do. Plus, how delicious did the one I posted above look?
Best Nut Butter
– Peanut Butter
– Justin’s Almond Butter
I do not like peanut butter unless it’s on a bagel with bananas before a long run, so almond butter all the way for me. The ChiaCharger is good, but still has peanut butter in most of them…meh.
Tastiest & Healthiest Fast Lunch Options
- Green Fine Salad Co.
– Cooks Fresh Market
Oh Green Fine, you so fine. You so fine, you blow my mind! What can I say? Their salads are the shit.
Best Cocktails in Denver
– ChoLon Asian Bistro
I love all of these places dearly, but I absolutely loved all of the drinks I had at Linger. The bar area had a great vibe, the bartenders were great, and the service was top notch. Their food…not so much.
Best Comfort Food
- Grilled Cheese w/Tomato Soup
– Mom’s Cooking
– Beef Stew
Okay, this one was definitely not fair, but nobody can ever compare to mama.
On a final note: I’m SOOOOOO excited!! Last night, I registered for the Blend Retreat being held in Boulder, CO. It’s going to be a 3-day blogger (and non-blogger) event with fitness classes, meals, and lots of good times, so I can’t wait to meet some of my favorite bloggers from across the country and even here in Colorado.
Question of the Day: Have you ever had the chance to meet up with any bloggers?
