Goooooood Morning

Hi! I have the day off today. Since the weather has been so amazingly nice, these days have been hard to come by. Don’t get me wrong, I love my job. It’s actually kind of hard to be at home when I know today is going to be BEAUTIFUL and they might need me there. I guess that’s what happens when you work with plants and gardeners, you give up those nice days. I don’t feel like Im giving them up though, because I am outside all day, and I really like the people I work with.

Okay! Back on track…

My goal was to sleep in a little this morning…I got a whopping 20 minutes out of that. Was up and WIDE awake at 6:10 a.m. When did I become an adult?

I have a big day ahead of me today. A doctors appointment, some food shopping (for work snacks), some clothes shopping (since none of last year’s spring clothes fit me!!), I have a massive load of clothes for donation, and I’m going to test drive a new car! OH yeah and its supposed to be 80 degrees? Wooo hooo.

To get started, of course, I made this:

And it was gone almost as quickly as it was made. Tasty tasty. I also had a nice steamy cup of coffee. I need to cut back on that just a bit.

Time to shower, and put on shorts? I have a feeling if I don’t I’m going to regret it…

I may also break the slackline out today. I want to start practicing my balance again and work all of those muscles that have been sleeping all winter. I hope everyone has a good, eventful day.

 

Dessert.

Tonight all I wanted was a cookie. I’m not one to deprive myself but when I eat anything with wheat in it my mind plays tricks on me. Most people think when you’re allergic to something that it makes you sick. That’s not always the case. When I eat bread or anything with wheat in it, my mind gets uneasy and I get anxious. The only reason I know this is from years of nutrition and cutting certain things out of my diet.

Any who. I decided to instead make myself a tasty little dessert smoothie. Excellent choice.
I threw a pretty ripe banana, two cups of unsweetened almond milk, a small handful of spinach, a big spoonful of peanut butter and a tablespoon of chia seeds into the blender. (not much different than what I make for breakfast but still desserty)

Here’s what I created:

It came out much lighter than my super spinachy breakfast monster…but it was pretty and delish. And oh baby it hit the spot.

Now I’m gonna get in my bed and relax since I finally get a day off tomorrow! Goodnighttttt
