Did you all have a beautiful Spring Equinox?
I wish I could say I did…but check out my bus stop this morning. -_- Yeah I know I should know by now that Spring in Seattle means rain…but I was really hoping for sun and warmth today! Maybe in San Diego?
Just wanted to share this really touching video. It’s a bit long, but it’s got a great statement which we all should hear.
Today was a very lonely and tiring day. I was still sick all day long so there was just no energy to try and be friendly or social. =/ It left me feeling just lonely.
Before the loneliness hit however, I had breakfast. I enjoyed another bowl of Weetabix topped with banana, ground flax, toasted almonds, and craisins. I’ve really been craving hot oatmeal since I’ve been so cold but alas, there just isn’t time in the morning to make a fresh batch and I hate reheated oatmeal!
(Side note: some of you have mentioned you’ve sought out Weetabix. Well, what do you think?! It’s okay to tell me I’m crazy but I love this stuff!)
30-Day Spring Break-Ready Challenge Day 1: Success!
Just gonna keep track of me sticking to my challenge since I don’t know if I’ve stuck to it until after I’ve posted and gone to bed. That said, last night I went to bed feeling good and woke up feeling even better! Before I know it I’ll be waking up hungry again. Such a great feeling, in my opinion.
I practiced mindful eating this morning while I enjoyed my strawberry overnight oats topped with a spoonful of sunflower seed butter and craisins. I really paid attention to the texture: the burst of the chia seeds, the chew of the dried fruit, and the creaminess of the oats. To be honest though, I was pretty bored! I kept finding my eyes wandering to things on my desk or wall so I’d have something to read and I had to actively remind myself to pay attention to the food. Hopefully it only gets easier.
That’s right. My appetite is back and I’m feeling loads better. I didn’t start feeling better until around 5pm but hey, I’ll take it.
I had a nice lazy morning with a nice lazily prepared stack of Kodiak Cakes cooked with sliced bananas and topped with cookie butter and craisins. It actually didn’t turn out looking so well due to the fact bananas like to stick to pans when cooked! Overall I was a bit disappointed with my pancakes. >.< I think we’ll have a re-match tomorrow.
Happy February! I’m so glad it is a new month. January was not great to be honest, but I’m ready for the improvements of February. On this Feb. 1st the weather was beautiful here. Yes, we saw sunlight!
In fact even when I was up super early to go deliver trays at the hospital there was daylight. Before I left I enjoyed another texture-perfection bowl of Weetabix. Yes it was the exact same toppings as yesterday: last of the NatureBox Orange Crunch Granola, Very Berry Bunch, ground flax, and toasted almonds.
After my hospital work, I headed back to the apartment and put my workout gear right on. I then went to the gym for about two hours! I had to make up for yesterday! 1.5 hours stationary hill biking followed by strength training, in which I increased all of my weights! Might have been a mistake because later my left arm was having some pain…
I love my Sundays with my babies. <3 I know they really look forward to it them too since on the occasion that I’m not home on Sundays they give me the silent treatment. They are so loving. ^_^
This morning I was up bright and early and making a hot breakfast of plain oats topped with homemade raspberry jam and a spoonful of crunchy sunflower seed butter. I’m really trying to get myself excited about oatmeal again so be prepared for some random concoctions. This PB&J bowl was alright but nothing to write home about.
Man am I beat. I forgot how much energy it takes to learn!!
I got up at 6am this morning, showered, and had a nice cold breakfast of overnight oats with frozen strawberries, a spoonful of my new chocolate cherry almond butter, toasted almonds, and golden raisins. Yum-o! Sadly, all the strawberry flavor masked the almond butter. I just couldn’t turn down adding some fruit!
