I never got a chance to really settle in at home during Christmas, so I was a little excited to get home from San Diego and finally unpack. Then I remembered I leave again on Friday for Miami (!!!!) and things got a little rushed. Yesterday was about my to-do list!
I slept until 10:30am after 10 hours of sleep, which was much needed after less than four hours the night before. I tried out two of the products sent to me for breakfast – Celestial Seasonings Tea and Love Grown Hot Oats! The tea definitely had the caffeine to replace coffee, and I LOVED the apple cinnamon oats.
The next couple of hours were paper work, emails, and laundry. Tons of things I’d put on the back burner over the holidays that needed to get done. I also had a snack of vanilla Oikos with banana around 1:30pm.
Around 3 I headed to the gym. I wanted to run and do a kettlebell workout, but my gym doesn’t have kettlebells! BOOO! I didn’t have a ton of energy (weird since I slept so much!) so I took my run nice and easy at kept a 6.5mph pace for an hour.
Afterward I stretched, did some core, and a few of the weights machines before heading out.
On the way home I stopped at Nordstrom to get my new watch sized. I wanted this for Christmas and
mom and dad santa came through!! Now it fits my baby wrists.
Both of my parents work late on Wednesdays, so requested that I be in charge of dinner. I’ll probably end up making dinner more than just Wednesday, but it really helps my mom to not be stressed out about cooking when she gets home at 7:30pm.
Since we are leaving again, I used food from the fridge and made a version of Paleo Chicken Lo Mein. I used chicken breasts we already had cooked, plus broccoli, cauliflower, red onion, and carrot. It was not Paleo as I made some whole wheat couscous to go with it, and the meal was rounded out with a simple salad.
After dinner I made a cup of Sleepy Time Tea (no after dinner snacking success!!) and went to put away all my clothes. I hadn’t unpacked from moving home! Things are put away, but not at all organized. I see a MAJOR closet clean out coming.
Events of the night included my neighbor coming over selling things to raise money for his “Notre Dame Ticket Fund.” Hilarious. He will seriously sell ANYTHING and despite my family having our own fund to try and buy game tickets down there, my parents were happy to help! Mostly just because it’s so funny.
My mom and I painted our nails for the game. She got all into it with different greens and golds and little shamrocks. I went with a lime green topped with gold sparkles. GO IRISH!
Then talking to P and bed!
I just got a nice 8 hours (I swear I sleep like a rock here. Totally making up for lost time), had another Hot Oats and Tea, and am going to go to spin class in a few minutes.
Another busy day and RE-packing for tomorrow!
- Are you back at work/school and in a regular routine again?
- Any fun trips over the holidays?
