Hello helloooo! I have a test today and then it’s weekend! And a test next week got rescheduled, making my weekend a whole lot calmer (and yet the weeks after spring break rather hellish.)
Not going anywhere and no visitors, so it’ll be a great weekend to catch up and get work done.
Hope you all have fun things planned this weekend!!
Five Things I Ate:
Eggs with spinach cooked in coconut oil, at the recommendation of MANY of you, is AMAZING.
My simple lentil masala dinner, of course. Each night!
Honeycrisp apples sliced with cinnamon. I tried buying other apples for money’s sake but they went to waste because I really don’t like them. I LOVE honeycrisps!
An ONNIT bison jerky bar – these are the Tanka bars I grew to love during Crossfit, but ONNIT now sells them. These are most definitely the strangest food item I like, but they are so good. Thanks, Onnit!
This half a brownie that my friend Emily surprised me with (after she ate half!) It was SO FREAKING GOOD. Gosh, that made my Wednesday.
Five Workouts via Julie.
Mon: squats, burpees and box jumps.
Tues: 30 min Reflexion Yoga
Wed: Bench press, pull ups, and push ups. Yowzas I am NOT good at pull ups. (meaning I can’t do them.)
Thurs: 50 min Reflexion Yoga focusing on arm balances. I did my first side crow!
Fri: Deadlifts and burpees on tap. Gross.

Five Things Making Me Happy:
1 week until spring break!!!! Then only six more weeks of class. CAN YOU BELIEVE THAT!? Holy moly.
My Morning Routine. I love it. It makes me happier all day.
Eating well. Sounds a bit odd, but I’ve been eating pretty nutrient rich foods this week and it makes me feel great! Good nutrition is so powerful, especially when it can involve brownies!
Yoga. I just really am into yoga lately.
Being almost to the fundraising goal for the NEDA walk next month! And still hoping for tons more month-of sign ups!!
- Your Turn! What’s making you happy this week?
