This week is off to a great start. After yesterday’s excited post, I had a productive Monday — laundry, apartment hunting, hanging out with my mom (who came down to check out an apartment I almost took), getting organized. All good things.
I feel like I filled my hollow leg yesterday–nuts and berries and grapes galore, salmon over salad with avocado, tuna with mustard, one of my attempts at a paleo brownie.
I think maybe the lack of sleep (early morning workouts rock but I gotta work on my bedtime) and the fact that I went back to WLC for an evening class and then taught spin left me ravenous. Maybe it was mental, because to be honest I took spin really easily, but I figured if I was hungry I might as well feed myself with some real food.
So real food it was.
Today, I woke up and headed to the gym. There were 34 people in spin this morning. Think about that. 34 people trusted me to start their day on a sweaty awesome note. So start it we did!
When I got home, I was beyond ready for breakfast. I ate too fast, kind of gave myself a tummy ache, but my bowl was extra tasty: eggs, banana, coconut, almond milk, blueberries, and almond butter to top it all off.
After a shower, I headed to my second home…
I met up with Cheri, whose blog post about feeding her family by design I shared yesterday (if you didn’t click it yesterday, here’s your next chance). I got to meet some of her family–these people are even more good looking in person (testament to the fact that living by design works, huh?)–and we had a nice chat about how awesome life is. Just kidding, but that kind of sums it up–I’m still smiling from our chit chat!
Afterwards, I popped into the mall, saw some friends at lululemon, and then came home. I was past hungry even though I dug into the nuts I stashed for “emergency” purposes in my car so I threw together a quick bowl — ground sirloin and mushrooms and onions from my freezer over kale topped with some parmesan.
Afterwards, I was still hungry so I had an apple for dessert.
I definitely ate too fast AGAIN. Lesson: eat before you’re beyond hungry. Chew. Ha!
I’ve been killing time ’til bootcamp this afternoon (I’ve got a circuit planned for the group, because I have a feeling it will be a big one) and am planning on doing some journalling next. My mind’s been racing a lot lately when I think about moving, being able to afford rent, and what I’m doing. I guess not going back to school–as right as it feels–is hitting me. I’m a bit anxious and scared around how I’m going to make a career out of my purpose, but let’s be honest. I’d be way more worried if I wasn’t so excited about what I’m doing, if I didn’t know so many successful people following their own callings, and if I wasn’t in such an awesome place in my life.
