Happy Thursday! I had a wonderful day and I am feeling refreshed and relaxed.
Shall I take you through a quick recap of my eats before I share my activities from the day?
Last night’s snack was dried cranberries, a glass of milk and an almond butter sandwich.
For lunch my mom and I hit up Whole Foods and I made a big salad with peppers, cucumber, jalapenos, mushrooms, chicken, hard boiled egg, quinoa, honeydew raspberries and blueberries. I also had chocolate milk.
For dinner I made another creation! I used won ton wrappers to make pizza bites. It was a good way for my dad to get in a taste of pizza because I know he has been craving it, but it isn’t carb heavy. Now my plate had more carbs because I used more of the wrappers. That is what I love about the won ton and egg roll wrappers! I can have more and my dad can have less. They are easy to fix and you fix as many as you want to reach your needs. I filled them with mozzarella and pepperoni and then served them with pizza sauce and salad. Yum! They tasted like a super crispy thin crust pizza!
I began today off by being a little lazy. As I ate breakfast I worked on my puzzles and then snuggled up on the couch to watch some Netflix. I decided to be more productive and worked on my transfer application some more. Then I got ready to head into Durham to go to the Y!
Today’s workout was a 45 minute cross train. There was a class at 12:30 called PiYo that I planned on trying out. I think there was a substitute instructor because it was just a yoga class. Flow yoga, to be exact. I really enjoyed that class! It was relaxing and challenging all at the same time. It began slow, but then it really picked up. I already have a few poses I want to work on! I wish I could take that class every single day. I believe that yoga can teach us many life lessons. Patience and acceptance being two of the big ones. I was able to accept that I couldn’t perfect every position and I had to be patient with my breathing and with holding the positions. I loved it and I can’t wait to go back!
After lunch with my mom I stopped at the grocery store to pick up a few things and then I came home and did some chores around the house. I also got the majority of the sanding finished! I relaxed the rest of the evening until it was time for me to make dinner.
I still need to do my breathing exercise today, but I am actually looking forward to it. After yoga I feel like I have constantly been aware of my breathing and I tried to focus on it whenever my mind started churning and producing unhelpful thoughts.
I also heard from Mary and she said that she gave my information to her client who needs a “personal chef” so it looks like that might be happening for me!!! I am excited about that!
Tomorrow I am going to work with my dad since I haven’t been since Monday… woops… hehe. I already have my lunch packed and my breakfast and snacks figured out so it should be an easy morning!
I hope you all had a great Thursday! It’s almost the weekend!
