Why hello. I’m not sure how things are going on your end, but this week has felt rather long over here and it’s only Wednesday night. Some weeks are like that though I guess.
I’ve been keeping on the early morning workouts, but making them a bit shorter and still trying to mix up some kind of intervals and/or strength training every other day.
I made up some spin intervals this morning.
I didn’t have a specific plan or anything or set times, but I did some seated sprints and some hard standing climbs.
I had a pretty awesome movie for entertainment.
Oh heck yes. Girls Just Want to Have Fun. The best movie ever.
Did anyone else want to be Janie?
That whole lovey scene with them practicing is one of my favorites by the way. I’ve practiced all those moves at some point in my life or another. Ha.
Since it’s Wednesday and all and people do the What I Ate Wednesday thing, here’s just a couple of random things that have gone down as of late in no particular order.
This Jupiter Cold Brew Coffee. It’s darn delicious.
I’ve been trying the new Vega One flavors with some morning smoothies. This one was the mocha flavor.
I found this little chicken salad cups form Costco last week and finally tried one. It was pretty good. I like the nutritional stats, but I’m just not sure if I’ll ever be a chicken salad type person. I’m not a fan of that kind of stuff for some reason.
Maybe I need to make my own or something. I do like the convenient little container these come in though for on the go.
The other day I topped a brown rice cake with Sweet Spreads chocolate brownie coconutter.
It was like perfect little combination.
Oh goodness and I never showed you the ultimate combination from over the weekend.
I mean, right? Chocolate peanut butter Arctic Zero (which I’m really liking more and more and finding it impossible to keep pints around the house for very long), homemade dark chocolate sauce and a baked cookies and cream Quest Bar. It was heavenly.
In other news not related to food at all, it was twin day at work. I suckered my new co-worker/best friend into being my twin.
My friend Jessica tagged me on this picture from instagram.
Freaking hilarious. We’re going to recreate it over here, but have it say “I wish he’d wear a bra.” LOL. Wouldn’t that be awesome? If only they made Handful bras for cats.
It’s the days when I really just want to get home and take my shoes off and relax after a really long day that the boys insist on opening the door without any help. I have to laugh every time because it’s like a cruel joke of testing my patience at the end of a very long day.
This guy really needs to work on his patience too by the way.
He does NOT need to work on his skills of tying things up and creating traps everywhere though. it’s his thing. Tonight went down a little like this until I told him I have to be set free to start dinner.
Lovely, yes? I guess the cats are learning his tricks too.
(Judah was busy playing school while this was going down. He was the principal and had a lot of “work to do.”)
Okay, in all seriousness, I have to confess that I’m struggling a bit. There are a few red flags here going on at the moment that need to be addressed. The whole return of the injury and not being able to run and such (luckily I have a doctor appointment tomorrow) and the whole trying to still keep up and do too much with a full time job. I need to let go of a few things that aren’t things that “need” to be done so I can take care of myself and the family. We always forget about that don’t we? The taking care of ourselves part. I still have a lot to learn.
Check out this nonsense.
That was not good and something I’m definitely going to make a priority so it doesn’t happen again. If I can’t run, the least I can do is focus on quality sleep and good nutrition.
So, yep, I’m focusing on a few other things while I can. There will never be more time to focus on certain things, but sometimes we just have to make the time.
I remember a friend telling me a couple years ago that we can’t do everything at one time, but we can do one thing all the time.
Have a good one!
