So, yesterday was a good day. When looking back on how the beginning of 2017 started for me, life has come a long way. Yesterday was a nice mix of work and life, and, well… I guess things just felt balanced for once, which, for the record, is not how my life typically feels. Not even exaggerating, I apologize to at least one person every week for being a “hot mess.” I’m usually running around like a chicken with its head cut off (aka hot mess mode), but yesterday was a good day. Here’s a little recap…
I set my alarm for 5:31 AM, planning to work at home before Mal and Quinn woke up for the day. Unfortunately, I woke up Murphy, who is the loudest creature ever when the potential for food is involved. He (Murphy) ended up waking up Quinn, who I tried to put back to bed with no luck. My attempt eventually turned into him (Quinn) climbing into our bed and then Murphy repeatedly laying on him… and then Quinn not liking it. *sigh* After that, we all went downstairs and it was pretty obvious no work was getting done. Whomp whomp. But at least I had a delicious breakfast to enjoy!
After breakfast, I got Quinn ready for the day, woke up Mal (he wanted to go to CrossFit), and took Murphy for a walk.
A hot second later, we all got into the car to drive Qman to daycare and Mal and me to CrossFit.
It was a fun workout – I managed 8 HSPUs in a row and then died for the rest. HSPUs are not my thing.
Then, French Toast iced coffee. (I drank half and left half in the fridge at home for later. With all of this hormonal stuff going on, I’m trying to keep my caffeine intake to a minimum.)
I also had a few bites of Mal’s honey dip donut – post-workout carbs for the win!
Back at home, I showered and got myself ready for the day. I also threw together a quickie lunch of ground chicken, sweet potato ribbons, and cowboy caviar.
Then, I ran a few errands. My goal for this week/weekend is to organize our kitchen cabinets. They’re scary. These plastic woven baskets are the perfect size and on sale this week!
After running my errands, I headed to the Capital One Cafe to meet Kerrie and tackle our To Do list. While there, I snacked on Peanut Butter + Banana + Rice Cake in a Jar (PBBRCIAJ). It was quite delicious and a much more travel-friendly way to eat my favorite snack!
I packed up around 5:30 PM and headed to Whole Foods to buy dinner and apple juice for Qman (he’s getting new tubes put into his ears tomorrow, and he can only drink apple juice or water in the morning. I figured apple juice might distract him from his hunger since he can’t eat in the morning before his surgery).
I finished off dinner with a Mini Oatwich, which was heavenly and worth every calorie! (I think the calorie counts at Whole Foods are new, right? I hadn’t seen them before.)
After that, I treated myself to a little beauty night. First, I got a manicure at MiniLuxe.
And then I headed next door for a blow-out from Lynne (she did an awesome job!) at Toni & Guy. It was quite the nice way to end Hump Day!
Question of the Day
How was your hump day? Was it a good day or something else?
