Breakfast after our run yesterday was a veggie, egg, and sausage scramble, toast with jelly, and some OJ.
My chiropractor has me taking this turmeric supplement. It's mixed with black pepper, which I guess allows your body to absorb it easier. This helps with inflammation, among other things. I told him I add both turmeric and black pepper to my eggs every morning. I saw him again for the second time yesterday and he said my hips are already evening out! YAY! I go back again tomorrow, so fingers crossed I keep improving.
Snacks on snacks. These crackers are delicious. They're also Paleo friendly, win-win!
Lu was missing her Dad, so she made a little bed on his jacket. If there are ever any clothes laying somewhere,
Lunch was my favorite Sweet Kale salad kit and a spicy black bean burger.
Dark chocolate covered espresso beans from our Halloween goodie bag from Jake's Grandma - thank you, Rosa Lee! <3
I tried to work on edits yesterday, but I was having a TON of trouble focusing on my paper. I eventually ended up taking care of a bunch of other stuff because I knew it wasn't going to happen for the paper. I hate when I can't focus on what I need to be doing! I'm hoping today is better. I think I was just over working on the paper since I did that all day Tuesday. At least that's what I'm telling myself!
Girls' road trip! I forced them to wear their candy corn necklaces...they LOVED it. Not.
We took a break to go visit Grandma Carmen! They were pretty excited to get out of the house. They played fetch for almost an hour at my parents' house. At one point, my Mom had thrown 3 tennis balls for them. Aspen kept trying to figure out how to carry more than one back to us. It was hilarious.
Dinner was honey Sriracha salmon, cauliflower fried rice, and a roll. I love that stores are selling the cauliflower fried rice mixtures pre-made. It saves so much time. And it's really tastey!
I got lots of cuddles from our babies last night. They were being super jealous of each other, but we finally got them to chill out. Anyone else have two dogs who get jealous when one is getting attention and the other isn't? It's ridiculous. They were each used to having us one-on-one, so it's taken a little getting used to having to share.
We turned our fireplace on last night and Aspen stood like this the entire time. I get it, girlfriend. Fire feels so good.
I picked up a couple bars of my favorite chocolate the other day at Mama Jeans. They have ALL different kinds and they're all SO good. If you haven't tried this, I highly recommend it.
My life right now...
I have a phone meeting later today, so I'm going to work on my edits until then. I'll probably try to squeeze in a rowing circuit today, too. For dinner, we are making homemade pizzas! I cant' wait.
Anyone have dogs that get jealous? What do you do?
Any tips for spending a lot of time in front of a computer every day but still getting to move around?
Happy Friday Eve, friends!
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.
