This morning after breakfast I took a walk around the block…twice! Walking and stretching really releases my abs and I feel so much better afterward. I was more active today than I have been in about a week and it was awesome!
I read my psychology book out on the deck after my walk and enjoyed being outside. It really makes any activity more enjoyable. Lunch was a hodge podge of scrambled eggs with peppers, pita chips and hummus, and the tiniest apple I’ve ever seen.
I threw together a snack of dark chocolate chips and pistachios before heading out again with my family to half-price books!
I finished the last few pages of my book in about 2 minutes last night and had a heck of a time falling asleep after that. I need a good thirty minutes of reading before bed to “finish my day” and sleep peacefully. Luckily, I found a novel that looks amazing and it was so cheap!
It’s historical fiction which is my favorite genre by far. You learn so much about the past but it doesn’t read like a dry textbook, the characters provide the intrigue while the setting educates you about a certain time period. This one is about the civil war and my interest was peaked after watching the movie Lincoln so I think I’m going to love it.
When I got home I snacked on a yogurt and read for a while after taking another two laps around the block.
I’m having a hard time figuring out when I’m hungry! I know that sounds crazy, but for nearly two years I’ve relied on a calorie counter to tell me when and how much to eat so I’m really having to tune back into my body and listen for those signals. It’ll take some time but I know I’ll get back on track.
I got to do some cooking tonight which was a blast! Summer is perfect for tons of fresh veggies and this pasta dish had a million.
If you see anything on here that you want the recipe for, leave a comment and I’ll post it the next day!
