Happy Sunday Team Family!!
Good Morning everyone!! Hope your weekend is going FAB! The Rock n Roll Marathon is kicked off, as I type and boy is it crazy here in SD! The prep that goes into a Marathon is insane! Signs started going up all over about 2 weeks ago. Where to park, where not park, what roads would be closed, etc. Basically the whole city is one big Detour today!! last year I made the mistake of going to the gym and learned my lesson!! STAY HOME! It took me 3 hours to get home instead of 10 minutes. Every road I went down, there was a detour! I literally couldn’t find my way home!! LOL. Driving around, you can see all the prep that goes into the event! Signs, porta potties, stages being set up, etc. Just crazy the event planning that goes into such an even that takes over the city! I am excited to see the results of Mike SheHee… I will keep you posted on the local news forecast and a little more about his journey and record!!! How exciting! Today M and I are going no where near the detours but we have decided to leave the house but in the opposite direction. Trust me, we have done our research and have mapped out our travel! We are headed to see iL CiRCo! Going to be a fun time! It is at a local intimate Venue and I am really curious how they are going to put on such a production, can’t wait… Did you know that one of my favorite things to do is go to the theater!! My parents always use to take me to the theater and I have grown up around musicals and just love them!!! Love the live entertainment and talent!! 🙂
On another note, my weekend has been busy and productive! So I have found the perfect yellow! Did my homework and got my sample color, painted a board the color of my guestroom, sponged the yellow and wahlaaa perfect! Did that on Friday and yesterday headed back to Home Depot to get the Gallon of Paint and Finish that I need and that is the project of the week… Going to start today or at least start with the tapping. From what i did on my poster board, it is quite easy and fun! There is so much you can do with Faux or Sponging! Thanks Rach for your advice! Found the perfect Yellow! I will take pics along the way so you can see my journey through my first faux paint job! Learn something new everyday!
Yesterday, Bruno and I had quite the adventure, starting out with a 3.5 mile walk around the bay then another long walk around “Fiesta Island”. Literally it is a Fiesta for Dogs! It is a large area of land centrally located and is super popular for recreational water sports, walks/runs, biking, bonfires and an off leash dog park right in the heart of the island! It is a dogs Disneyland!! Dogs are allowed off leash and can run for miles, literally! Anyways, we had a great time and a well needed bath was necessary when we got home!
I had to run some errands and one stop was the grocery store. I was all excited to find that “Just Like Sugar, Erin mentioned, but unfortunately the location I went to didn’t carry it, bummer. BUT I did find a few other finds, which I will share with you this week! 🙂
I got in my walks with Bruns and then 20 minutes of my own walk/mile run and 20 minute full body circuit. I was only able to get in 5 meals yesterday and kept things simple, since I was on the go.
meal 1: 1/2 c. oats, protein shake, 100 cal pack cocoa almonds
meal 2: Big veggie omelet
meal 3: same as meal 1 minus the almonds
meal 4: Protein pancake with 1/3 c. oats, scoop pro and 2 egg whites
meal 5: Big Salad, Green Beans and Asparagus with broiled tilapia and 1 tbsp Udos Oil
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:
Are you becoming the person YOU want to be?? In a world of judgment, unfortunately, it is important to revisit your goals and priorities and see where they are stemming from?! Are they driven from your OWN soul-searching, self-analysis, and personal planning? Or are they a reaction to pressures from other people? Did you find them within yourself or from something you read in a magazine or something you heard from someone else? This is so important because these answers reveal if the person you’re becoming is someone you want to be or someone you think you should be.
Take a look at one of your goals: do you want it, or do you just think you should want it or think that is what other people want for you? It can be hard to get lost in distractions of what the world wants and what YOU want. It can be challenging to follow your own direction in life, with all the “noise” from others and the media but it can be done! It is important to question everything! Question where thoughts, actions and ambitions are coming from. Are they coming from within you or from an outside source?? Make sure it belongs to YOU and if it does, right on! If not, re-evaluate and put it aside… Make your goals and priorities in line with YOU and YOUR wants, needs and desires! Easier said than done, in a society with so much outside influence but be in touch with you, who you are, and what YOU want!!
