And yes, I’m fairly certain that I’ve aged myself with that greeting, but I don’t really care because it’s Thursday (which is my Friday) and you know what that means…time for another round of Thinking Out Loud!
First and FOREMOST, I want to say a big thank you to each and every one of you who left a comment on last Thursday’s post on Dieting PTSD. Like I said, that was not an easy one to publish but the amount of encouragement, support, and empathy you guys gave leaves me feeling empowered, humbled, and teary-eyed.
Oh my gosh, I love you guys!
You know what else I love? Pretty flowers! Last weekend, I went on another hike…this time on the trails over near my house. You know, the ones I always get lost on? Well, this time I did NOT get lost…exactly. I knew precisely where I was when I came out in the middle of a nearby neighborhood…that was four miles away from home!
Yep, one day I’ll learn, but until then, I’ll just keep losing my direction while picking flowers and stalking adorable little tree frogs! 😉 You guys should know that this pic was taken with my still NEW iPhone on FULL zoom…that little guy was about the size of a quarter!
We had some amazing weather last weekend and it has continued on into the week…every day it’s gotten up to at least the high 70’s…and it only took until last night for me to finally realize that the ceiling fans were NOT cutting it and turned on the AC! The deciding factor may or may not have been me sweating while trying to put on my makeup for work…oh yeah, all my ladies know what I’m sayin’!
As warm as it’s been, you’d think it only would have taken a few days for my homemade kombucha to finish brewing…but at day seven, a taste proved to still be too sweet for my liking. Baaaaaa-UT? At day ELEVEN she’s PERFECT!! Now it’s time to get to flayyyyyyy-voring!
Another fist pump moment…I’ve been sleeping like an absolute ANGEL! Perhaps it’s because I’ve finally been feeling like myself again after two weeks of being “off”, perhaps it’s because I’ve been busier than a one-armed bandit at work each night, or perHAPS it’s because I’ve come to the realization that if you stack the liquid AND pill forms of Benedryl, you end up in pure slumber BLISS!
After a WHOLE MONTH of dedicating all of my
sweet sweat time to my yoga mat, last Saturday, I made it to the gym for the first time! Endurance? What’s that?! Five minutes on the elliptical and I was already dripping from head to toe! And I totally went back yesterday for more!
Oh and I had a proud (non-masochistic) moment yesterday! After being kinda how-hum on the veggie front for the last week or so AND being that it is the time of the month where the only color I want to eat is
brown CHOCOLATE, how about I ran to store for lemons and came out with…
Snap peas, carrots, mushrooms, tomatoes…and bonus points for not forgetting the lemons! 😉
But don’t you worry, I made sure to balance out all that healthy shit with a bit of “summer” indulgence! 😉
Now hop on over to Spoons and see what everyone else is thinking about today!
Tell me, what’s on your mind this week?
How’s the weather been?
