It’s Wednesday and I didn’t do a WIAW post. I meant to– but yesterday, I completely forgot to take any photos of my lunch or snacks…and so by the time dinner rolled around, I didn’t even bother. Whoops. Hate missing it, but I guess there are worse things.
By here’s the jist of it this week— I’m back into my green smoothie kick.
I’m loving kale salads for lunch with Annie’s Goddess dressing (holy amazing-ness).
Every day at work, I stop for a fudgesicle break. I got these at Whole Foods the other day and they are the best afternoon chocolate snack.
And dinners have been all over the place. Tonight’s will hopefully involve some quinoa.
In other news…..
My goal in August was to have a more regular schedule at the gym. And I know it’s only the 23rd and too early to say I’m sucessful, butttttt….I will say so far, so good! I’ve been sticking to yoga on Monday nights (liking it more each time…I wasn’t a huge fan of the teacher at first, but she’s growing on me). Tuesday mornings, I swim in the pool. The post-dinner yoga to pre-breakfast swim though isn’t giving me much energy…next week I need a snack or something inbetween. And Wednesday mornings I tried a Zumba class…..but it ended at 7:15 and made me too late to work, so instead I just try for 30 minutes on the elliptical. The rest of the week isn’t as scheduled, but I manage to get in another 3 workouts between Thurs and Sun. All in all- it feels more like a schedule, it’s de-stressing, and I’m happy about it.
So at yoga this week, we did this weird thing where we breathe out of our noses, one nostril at a time (yes, weird I know)….AND I discovered that it’s sooo much easier for me to breathe out of my right nostril. It’s like my left is clogged or something. Really weird. Try it.
Workwise, I got a raise today! Our fiscal year starts Sept 1, so I had my annual review today. It’s not a ton…and will probably allow me enough for an extra cup of coffee every month, but hey, no complaints here.
And, here’s a creepy photo of me. Not sure what’s up with my hair or extra big forehead— I took it when I was bored/tired/relaxing in Folsom over the weekend. BUT just showing you– I have a ton of freckles! Most people who only see farther-away photos of me don’t realize. But I have a lot, not just in the summertime, and they’re not going away.
Speaking of my weekend in Folsom….I left my hair straightener in the hotel room. Major bummer! I use it everyday– not to make my hair super straight– but just to look more put together. Still hoping to find it somewhere.
– Have you ever left anything in a hotel room?
– Do you have any freckles?
– Do you have annual reviews or your job or not?
– Yoga? You go regularly, occasionally, or never?
