Good morning everyone! Thank you so much for all of your sweet comments from last night’s post. Self-doubt is a scary thing, and I don’t know why I beat myself up once in a while over these things. I do firmly believe that I am where I am for a reason, and I just need to make sure that I remember that! Once again, I’m so thankful for all of you, your sweet comments, and the blogs that expose your beautiful lives as well!
Last night Nate did everything he could to cheer me up, and that alone reminded me that I am a very lucky girl to have such a sweet husband! He even let me pick Noodles & Company for dinner (he’s not the biggest fan). It was either that or Subway, but eating lettuce sandwich just didn’t sound good to me. I got the Bangkok Curry (regular size) which is only 490 calories, 13 grams of fat, 7 grams of fiber, and 9 grams of protein:
That cake was seriously amazing. It had the most subtle hints of coffee, and it was just so moist! Happy birthday (tomorrow) Steph, and thanks for the cake Emma! After we left, I realized that I had a massive headache, so I ended up going to sleep at 9:30. Yes, you read that right! But honestly, it was just what I needed…driving home the streetlights were KILLING my head, and closing my eyes was the only way to make it go away. I woke up bright and early and did the WMM2 and yoga parts of the HPJ workout, then headed to the kitchen to make a smoothie:
- 1 cup nonfat milk
- 1/4 cup nonfat plain yogurt
- 1/4 cup oats (I mixed the milk/yogurt/oats together and let them sit for 20 minutes while I got ready)
- 1/2 cup frozen raspberries
- 1 frozen banana
- 5 ice cubes
I wanted to soak the oats because I figured it would blend into the smoothie better than way. This ended up being a great combo! I didn’t really taste anything different with the oats in there, but I have been full a LOT longer than I normally am with a smoothie. Hello favorite summer breakfast!
As a result of yesterday, I’d like to take this time to talk about how you’ve MADE things happen in your life. What have you done to consciously change the course you were on? Did it end up better or worse? What would you do/what ARE you doing now to change the things that are making you unhappy? I know when I was unhappy working at Starbucks I jumped right into being a personal trainer without any research, and ended up even more unhappy than I was before! BUT we also took a step to move to Colorado from Dallas, and that is something that has ended up bringing us a lot of joy as well! As for this recent unhappiness, I’m going to start putting myself out there for freelance projects and start writing articles and posts even if there’s no where to publish them (yet)! If I love writing, I should be doing it regardless 🙂
