Breakfast this week is Paleo bacon and avocado toast with two eggs. Plus a little watermelon on the side. It was delicious yesterday. Watermelon is so refreshing when it's hot outside.
I worked for a few hours in the morning, taking breaks every 45-60 minutes. Whenever I took a break, I would clean, answer emails, or have a snack. My morning snack was protein balls and carrots with hummus. I bought another huge container of that Thai Coconut Curry hummus. It's just SO dang good.
I got dressed for yoga after my snack, then worked for another hour. I was knocking out things on my To-Do list like crazy! It felt good to get so much finished. Lu wasn't impressed with my work.
About an hour before yoga, I had to have lunch. I was going to wait until after class, but I was super hungry. I finished up my Tofu steaks with some dairy-free cheese and ate a little more of the Baja Quinoa from Lucky's. It was a super yummy lunch and it was light enough that it wouldn't bother me during yoga.
Aspen was doing her own yoga.
Holy cow. Yoga was AMAZING. It felt so good to stretch and sweat! I was drenched when I left. I wasn't trying to make the duck face, but I guess when you blow air out of your mouth in a picture that's how it comes out...HA! Anyway, yoga was perfect yesterday and the class flew by. I'm hoping to go at least once a week during my training. It needs to happen.
After yoga, I had a little protein shake and some dried mango, then I mowed the yard.
It was so pretty outside yesterday.
I use a sunless tanner a lot, but I don't like putting it on my face. It makes me break-out really bad. I researched some different kinds for your face and found this. Stay tuned! I'll take some before and after pictures after I use it a few times.
After I got cleaned up from mowing, it was about 3PM. I was worn out! I sat down on the couch and had some more snacks. I had officially gotten everything on my To-Do list for the day finished! Normally I'd start on my list for the next day, but I just didn't feel like it, so I relaxed for a little bit! Also, I found corn nuts in the bulk section at Lucky's. I used to LOVE corn nuts! I was excited. They're pretty good! Not as good as the Corn Nuts brand, but they'll do.
The girls joined me for some relaxing.
Jake went on a Taco Tuesday ride last night, so I hopped on my own bike and headed to 4 By 4 to meet Kallie and see Cassie, my friend who owns the ADORABLE flower truck here in town.
How awesome is this??? She has the prettiest flowers. If you're in the area, go find her! She also does deliveries!
Beer and flowers. Yes, please!
Jake met us at 4 By 4 after his ride, then he and I rode home to eat dinner. We had Greek Chicken Bowls again. They're just so good! And so easy to make!
I needed some chocolate after dinner. I LOVE this brand. It's all we buy.
I always get our coffee ready before we go to bed. Jake's parents brought this back for us from the Dominican Republic! I am excited to try it! Thank you, Jeff and Penny!!
I've got another day of a full To-Do list to knock out! I'm going to squeeze in a little weight lifting and a bike ride, too. I meant to go to the Y this morning, but I ended up sleeping in until almost 7. It felt so good to lay in bed!
I write about whatever is going on each day. I want to use this space as a place to document my dissertation and training journeys.
