Dear ones, I don’t know about you, but I am so thrilled the weekend is within reach. It has felt a bit like a never ending week. The sad part is, it was actually quite a good few days…but I’m ready for a weekend where I can just relax. Between family emergencies and bridal showers and house sitting and reunions, I am ready for some time to myself. Well…almost to myself. My oldest niece, Katie, is coming to stay with me, but I am beyond thrilled for some quality time with her.
You know how I wrote earlier today about how, although I love cereal, it really just doesn’t fill me up? How ironic then, that when I went to let the dogs out on my lunch break, I had a big bowl of cereal for lunch, along with some pomegranate Chobani. I am so blissfully happy I finally found that flavor, I could seriously eat it like candy.
Throughout the course of the afternoon, I think I consumed more junk food than I normally do in probably close to a week. Cake for a (pitifully under-attended) farewell party at work, a pack of Nutty Bars, and some M&M cookies that one of my friends made for me to celebrate
surviving successfully finishing boot camp. It was really sweet of her.
My body is rebelling for all the junk, not to mention an overload of pasta for dinner and a severe lack of water over the past couple of days. I just feel all around sluggish and kind of, for lack of a better word, gross. It doesn’t help the run I planned on didn’t happen when I got caught up in the book I’m reading. And, perhaps the wine I had while reading had a small part too.
It really does amaze me though, that the junk really used to be the status quo for my diet. It’s days like this that make me realize just how much what we eat does affect our bodies in so many ways.
To end on a totally unrelated note, I just saw a statistic that said 50 percent of all jobs lost in the last decade were in my state. It makes me feel so grateful to have actually found a job in the midst of that!
What is one thing you’re grateful for today?
