Yesterday was a so/so day which is better than a bad day. Yes? Yes. I wasn’t able to work my real job but I was done stressing with the boy needing attention too and throw in I had class online from 9 am to 12:20 pm it was a packed morning to begin with.
Highlights of the day:
I made gluten free chocolate chip cookies and between 6 people they were all gone at the end of the day.
I completed my 8 week class of Anthro 101. Completed it with a B. Go me!
I was reminded again my worth and why I’m working so hard to better my kids and me.
I took naps with my littles.
Stuck to Gluten Free eating.
So, yesterday was better than the day before and I know some of our days are good and others aren’t. This is a brand new normal for us all. I’m hoping today is even better. Until tomorrow.
I took the weekend off. What’s happening all over the world is really starting to get to me. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve been disturbed but I’m a go go go person and having to stay home is so hard. I don’t think some people will get what I’m feeling and I think others will 100% get what I’m feeling.
I took the weekend off to just be. To try and enjoy being indoors. You know, I did.
My hot neighbor (boyfriend) and I watched: Jojo Rabbit, Case 39, The Big Wedding, 3 Men & a Baby, FoxFire, Big Time Adolescence, and of course the #1 viewed thing on Netflix Tiger King (horribly bad it’s so good). It felt good to just be in the moment and binge watch movies we hadn’t seen or re-watched movies from the 80’s and 90’s.
We took a 1.5 mile walk later in the evening on Saturday night. It was nice to get out, with no one else out and enjoy the fresh air. Things we take for granted usually mean so much when you’re stuck indoors all day long.
We barbecued yesterday. We made chicken and asparagus. It reminded me of our times at the cabin. I miss the cabin. I can’t wait to be back there. What is odd is that when we go to the cabin, outside of going to have breakfast in the Lake Arrowhead village we stay in and do nothing. Actually, we get creative and watch movies on VHS. I can’t wait to be back up there.
I think we can all, those of us who don’t know how to slow down, can use this time to slow down. I’m going to try and take my weekends to do that.
This week I have my kids. This week I made a schedule for my son and I between me working and doing my school work to making sure that he is doing his school work we are going to be busy this week. I will update daily, I won’t promise each day will go smoothly and I may need to pause a lot but this is really helping to get my thoughts out. Until tonight….
Time to hold myself accountable on this quest to lose my heart attack weight while living with my friend who keeps on giving PCOS. I’ve been good since my last post about no gluten. However; that night I epic failed because ordering late caused me to eat gluten so I added no food after 8pm because my good thinking disappears. So since the morning after my last post I’ve been 100% gluten free.
I’ve found that eating no gluten is helping me get back into being good to me food wise. I’ve found snacks I used to enjoy, I’ve saved money having to eat at home more and I’m feeling less bloated. Imagine, just eating the way suggested to me is helping me to physically feel better.
As I continue my quest to lose my heart attack weight while battling PCOS I will start to again post recipes and ways I’m good to me. I’m grateful that I found my purpose with this blog which is what it started as years ago. I miss my old blog but with life events it is gone but I’m so grateful I can start over. We can always start over.
