Thursday – 30 minutes of elliptical intervals.
Thank you all for the well wishes and good vibes! My back has been feeling much better and I have started doing some cardio exercise to get my butt back into the gym. I’ll probably avoid lifting for another week or so, but I’m optimistic
1) A big ol’ bowl of avocado, red onions, cheddar, chicken, and homemade salsa. Avos have been on hella sale for the past week or so and I am SO jazzed.
2) Chris has been really craving baked squash lately and we picked up a lovely little acorn squash, rubbed the inside with coconut oil and baked in the oven until it was sweet, roasty, creamy deliciousness. Do you eat the skin? I do, but he doesn’t. It was organic and I’m not gonna pay for organic anything and not eat the skin!
3) Cheesecake! Chris isn’t big on desserts, but he loves cheesecake, so I was so stoked to see this wonderful SkinnyTaste recipe. I used slightly less sugar (flavored yogurt already has tons), one whole egg instead of two egg whites, and skipped the chocolate/raspberry fancy. I also experimented with yogurt flavors – I’ve made this twice now, once with blueberry yogurt and once with peach yogurt and both were amazing.
Thank you all so, so much for the support, kind words, and well wishes on my last post about feeling in a funk. I don’t really like to post when I’m feeling emotionally unwell, but it made me feel so much better to read your comments and remember that I’m not the only one who feels off sometimes.
You all inspired me to be take charge and I started a little secret side blog where I vom my thoughts and feelings every morning. A lot like how I used to journal personally, I don’t worry about sentence structure or sounding like an idiot. Putting things into words helps me sort it out.
I recently made a list of every single thing in the world that rubs me the wrong way in some form – ranging from feeling helpless and overwhelmed to getting a pimple.
I then made a list of every single thing that brings me joy in any way, like eating breakfast with my husband, petting cats, or looking at vacation photos. I tried to match things from this list with things from the “FML” list. For example, I hate when my bus is late, but I like listening to podcasts. It’s so empowering! Plus, who doesn’t love lists?
Do you keep a personal journal?
