Today is my Thursday

Short weeks make me smile, even if it really doesn’t even seem that much shorter.  Today is like my Thursday since I have off Friday.  I’m headed back up to NYC tomorrow after work so that Alex and I can fly out bright and early (our flight is at 6:45) Friday morning for Iowa.  Alex’s brother is getting hitched on Saturday, and he is the best man so we have tons of fun wedding adventures on the schedule for this weekend.  I’m not gonna lie, I’m kind of freaking out about our flights.  We couldn’t find an affordable direct flight so we have layovers both going there and coming home, with only like 45 minutes between one flight landing and the other taking off.  Please keep your fingers crossed that none of our flights are delayed and we don’t miss our connections!  Oh, and can you still check in online if you don’t have a printer to print your boarding pass?

After skipping yoga last week, I really didn’t want to go last night but I made myself and I’m glad I did.  It felt really great to get in the stretching and body weight work, although the room was absolutely freeeeeeeezing.  I had on a long sleeve shirt and pants for the first five minutes or so.  That’s what I hate about cool days during a summer that has been hotter than hell, the ac still pumps full blast even though it was only 65 out.  Anyway, definitely feeling it in the muscles today that I took a week off.

After yoga I came home and made dinner for me and my mom.  We had some peppers in the fridge that needed to get used, so I made my Zucchini Pepper Basil Pasta.

  • 1 zucchini
  • 3/4 – 1/2 of red, yellow, and green pepper
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • big handful of spinach
  • handful of basil
  • 1 jar of Vodka sauce
  • Topped with Parmesan

I used a whole 16 oz bag of Organic Whole Wheat Penne pasta and a jar of organic Vodka sauce, and it was delicious.  I wanted to make enough to enjoy leftovers for the rest of the week, and was quite successful.  So yeah, you already know what I’m having for dinner tonight :).

Tonight I have to pack, and you all know how much I enjoy that.  I’m trying to avoid the overpacking this trip since not only will I be lugging crap on a train, in a subway, and through the streets of NYC but also into a cab, through an airport, and then back home again.  Good thing I’ve been doing all this yoga to strengthen my arms.  I’m actually making a list of things I need, this is what I’ve got so far.  Anything stand out that I might be missing?
