Post treadmill run crazy hair yesterday. I'm still a little bummed I didn't get to run outside yesterday since it didn't end up storming like it was supposed to, but I've got my fingers crossed for Thursday's run!
After my run I came home and made a quick breakfast - two eggs, bacon, and sautéed mushrooms, onions, spinach, and tomatoes. All topped with nutritional yeast and Sriracha, of course!
After breakfast, I packed up all my stuff and headed to the library. I always treat myself to an almond milk latte when I work at the library. A little bribery goes a long way! I spent about 3ish hours there working. I got a lot finished, but I'm planning to spend even longer there on Thursday.
Food was the main reason I left. I forgot a snack, so I bought this vegan cookie from the coffee shop in the library. It was delicious, but I needed lunch. I'll take lunch with me on Thursday when I go.
I needed to stop by the grocery store on my way home, so I did that super quick. These two songs came on a Spotify playlist I was listening to - I loved them!
Thankfully my lunch was already made, all I had to do was heat it up. I was SO hungry. I threw it all in a tortilla and chowed down.
Brandi, our friend and photographer from our wedding, sent me a few more pictures! Here they are! Please take me back to this day!!!
Here are some more pictures from the brunch us gals went to before our ceremony.
Of course we found a dog...the owner was SO nice and let us take some pictures with his adorable furbaby! It made our day!

I picked up more hummus - I cannot stop eating that Thai Coconut Curry hummus by Hope Foods. It's incredible.
Guys, you gotta try this! For dinner last night we had Sweet Potato Chicken Poppers (THIS recipe). Holy cow they were good! I highly recommend them. This recipe is Paleo and Whole30 compliant, too. I also made my favorite brussels sprouts recipe - the one with honey and balsamic. YUM.
This is my all-time favorite soap from Bath and Body Works. I use the lotion, too. This scent is only out during Christmas time, so I always stock up. I think I bought 8 bottles of both this year...this is my last one! So sad.
Here's another song I love! I listened to a mellow playlist while I took an Epsom Salt soak last night and this came on.
I've got more edits to do today. I'm working on Chapter 4, which needed a lot of work, so I'm hoping to have it wrapped up and ready to go at the end of this week. I think what makes the editing process so difficult is that people want different things from me. I think that's part of the PhD process, though. I have to be able to make an argument for why I did something a certain way. I wrote my chapters and then didn't really read through them again in their entirety. I was just so happy to be finished writing. I have been able to make them flow a lot better and fix some word choice things as I've been slowly reading through them, so that's a positive! I've also had a couple "what in the world were you thinking here" moments. HA!
About to get technical on ya: I posted this on my Facebook, but if anyone is a Word wiz, PLEASE let me know! I'm trying to format headings and once I get to Level 3 (I'm using APA), the heading format applies to the entire paragraph since there's no line break between the heading and the paragraph. I spent almost 4 hours trying to fix it yesterday and got SUPER cranky. I'm wondering if I'll have to just manually add any Level 3 headings to my Table of Contents. That's not a huge deal, other than it's one more thing to do and everything else will be hyperlinked from my Table of Contents. Soooo, if you have any ideas on how I can fix that, I will love you forever!
I'm going to get a little HIIT Circuit in later today - I'll share the workout with you!
Cheers to Wednesday!
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.
