Good Morning 💜
I was up and at it early today- knocking back coffee while reading over materials for two tests scheduled this morning (one in each class). I ended up missing one question on one and scored a 100 on the other. Not a bad way to begin the semester 📚.
I was off from the salon today, and my tests were complete by 10 am, so I had an entire free day. I spent most of my late morning bumming around the house in my PJs. I did manage to clean the bathtub and sweep the floors while watching Wendy Williams (”How you Doin”).
I paused for a snack break in between (this coconut Chobani yogurt is delish)…
After working all week in the salon and then scrubbing the bath, I realized my poor nails had gone long enough without a fresh coat of paint, so I gave myself a little manicure.
This afternoon I took a trip to Wal-Mart to grab a few groceries. While I do love Sprouts and some of the other markets, I will probably always go to Wal-Mart for my frozen veggies. Its just hard to compete with their prices (yes, I am a bargain shopper-we eat too much not to be).
I have to say that I get a bit aggravated at the fact that you can’t buy beans in glass containers. We are all aware at the potential harmful chemicals that come from canned foods, but soaking and cooking beans takes so long in comparison to opening a can. I have incorporated a lot more legumes into my diet recently as opposed to meat protein- In part, because my carbohydrate intake is relatively high right now, and it makes it easier to get in all of my macros. I guess if I continue eating more beans, I will opt for slow-cooking them from the bag in the crockpot.
While at Wal-Mart, I decided to grab a plate, a bowl, and a single set of forks and spoons. Our things from Italy are still not here and we have yet to receive word when they will get here 😩 Its hard to take a pretty food pic on a paper plate (and y’all know I am obsessed with my food pics on IG) #macrosandmicrosnutrition
This evening while cooking dinner (a grilled chicken salad the size of me head), I started watching some old episodes of the CrossFit games. Well, I got sucked in and am still watching an hour and a half later.
Today was a rest day, so hopefully all of this motivation I have going on right now spills over into tomorrow’s workout 😉
Happy Thursday 😘
