The Love Grown Hot Oats winner has been announced! Check out the original post to see if you won!
So Friday morning I woke up later than expected and only had time to scarf down this quick banana and almond butter before I had to take my mom to get her car. (It was being serviced).
The banana and AB was just the amount of food I needed to bang out a great spin class. Lots of tabata today which is always a killer. I showered quickly at the gym and then booked it over to a meeting with the doctor I’m a research assistant for. We’re still in the beginning phases, but I’m helping here write an IRB (= institutional Review Board. You must submit a proposal to get approved before you can do studies) for a study on eating disorders. I’m pretty sure I can’t say much more due to confidentiality, but it’s really interesting and I’m so excited to get this experience.
After the meeting I came home and had the same lunch I have had every day this week. It is delicious, nutritious, and keeps me full so I haven’t felt the need to change. TJ’s tri-layer hummus is so good.
I was getting some work done when I got a phone call that the movers were ready to deliver my things EARLY! When does that happen? So I dropped everything and headed over to my storage unit….
Think I have enough stuff?
Gosh. Most of that is furniture I’ll use again when I move, but I did bring some things home. It was stuff I forgot I even had. This move has made me realize how little I actually need. I REALLY need to just start donating things, but I always worry I’ll want it some day! I have loved not feeling cluttered these past few weeks, though, so that might be enough to convince me.
On the way home I stopped by the orthodontist where my mom and I were having our retainers cleaned. Three cheers for BOTH of us still wearing our retainers! And extra cheers for them not being so disgusting anymore!
Oh and know what else is fun? The new Operation Beautiful book came (I pre-ordered it). I love Caitlin’s project and both my mom and I are thinking of ways to use the book. Me in Girls on the Run and my mom (a pediatrician) perhaps at work!
SOO I completely forgot to grab a snack in the rush of meeting the movers, and by the time I got home I was STARVING. I made an early dinner of last night’s leftovers and scarfed it down.
I intended to have another real meal before bed, but snack mode won out. I had a chocolate fudge Think Thin bar and some baby carrots, but kept going back for more while watching the Lance Armstrong special. Ended up with a few bowls of Christmas chocolates, a few handles of nuts, and some chips. I think the combo of a teeny breakfast + not having a snack really did me in..so much for my goal of no night time snacking! I needed more food throughout the day, so I need to be better about planning.
Of course I had my Celestial Seasonings sleepy time tea before bed. It’s become a great nighttime ritual.
- Do you ever just get rid of STUFF or do you keep everything?
- Any moving horror stories? This one actually went pretty smoothly! (Aside from it being way more expensive than I thought)
