Time seems to disappear whenever I think I’m going to have a long day to get all kinds of things done.
It might have something to do with the leisurely pace at which I’m taking things or with how I’m doing about 20 things at once instead of 1 at a time. That’s okay — nothing’s on a deadline and I’m taking it easy on myself.
Eats were random today — my fridge was pretty bare this morning so before I left to change that I made do with a can of tuna and some mayo. Simple. This used to be my daily afternoon snack, hence my nickname “tuna” — and it wasn’t actually so bad, but warning: it’s not that appetizing cuz it is what it is!
After errands and dilly dallying (i.e. reading magazines in Shoppers, etc.) I headed to Remark to pick up some groceries. And by some I mean more than I meant to, but I blame being hungry and having bare shelves if I needed an excuse. Coming home was kind of like a fresh start and for that I’m grateful!
I stocked up on all kinds of good stuff…including some “artisinal butter” that I figured I might as well try (local, they say) and some unhomogenized milk. Random — should be interesting — could be gross — but reading Nina Planck’s Real Food and some blog posts about the stuff made me at least think I could try it (I mostly use milk for my coffee). I’ve got almond milk as a backup and London is rampant with Starbucks so you know where to find me if things are gross.
And a treat was definitely the fresh figs that I bought. I devoured about half the package already…
and made use of ‘em in a salad that I just ate! I know it’s late for lunch, but I’m saying whatever and going with it! After my evening workouts I’ll be ready for another meal and I’ve cooked up some chicken and pork chops so I’m all set with options, plus I roped Angela into coming over and helping me roast that massive head of cauliflower — something I’ve wanted to do ever since I saw a recipe (albeit a weird one) on punchfork forever ago.
Yay for being back home and having a kitchen/the opportunity to cook!
Now it’s time for me to head to the chiropractor — yay! There’s lots of exciting things going on with Life By Design today because so many people are starting their 30 day challenges! I’ll also share this newspaper story and link to a great blog post that Dr. Kreso wrote earlier today about who you surround yourself with. Thought provoking, to say the least, and I think it extends to more — what kinds of things are you filling your life with? TV shows? Magazines? Music? Podcasts? Books? Blogs? I know this is worth considering — there’s unlimited information out there and it’s at our fingertips, so choosing on purpose to listen to and expose ourselves to only the best options = a good idea, don’t you agree?
Have you ever tried fresh figs?
How do you choose which blogs you read? Does it change?
Do you ever consciously think about who you’re spending your time with? Have you ever had to break up with a pal because they weren’t lifting you up?
