It was a fruitful Monday for me. So much so that I even notice my cell provider’s service went down. Fortunately, I was able to capitalize on the pause (aka lack of distractions) and re-organize and file all of our paperwork. It was a long overdue project, but I’m super excited that I knocked it lit today while watching Wuthering Heights. I absolutely loved the book and the miniseries didn’t disappoint. They skipped over a lot, so I’d be curious to see a longer interpretation would treat the story.
My Monday started off like most others although I had a stowaway in bed. Unfortunately, the Mayor learned last night/early this morning that eating a full bag of Takis before bed is a bad idea. Thankfully, he’s a much calmer sleeper than he used to be and didn’t punch or kick me at all. After taking the dogs out, I enjoyed my coffee while reviewing my emails, news and social media. It’s a nice time to connect before I go into yoga and disconnect for a few hours.
Today’s yoga class was a gentle flow with Monica. It’s a nice, chill class that’s great for warming up the body before doing BBG. Obviously, the shavasana is the best part of the class, especially in Monica’s classes. It’s so good! Naturally, it’s a bit tougher at home with the distraction. As always, kids tend to have the best timing. Consequently, if they “need”to order food or anything, they’ll interrupt shavasana to ask me. In fact, it happened today when the Mayor asked if he could order Chipotle via the newly downloaded door dash app on his phone. Of course, since I had to pay zilch, I approved the takeout.
Post yoga, I broke my fast with a banana and some almonds. Since the banana was quite large, I split it with the puppies. It’s their new favorite treat. Afterwards, I headed back into our room for BBG leg day. As always, it was a killer. This week there was a new exercise – I loved it. It was a a forearm plank with leg lifts. Truly, it was challenging, but it makes your engage almost every muscle in your body. Per usual, the lay down burpees kicked my arse. Consequently, I will be sore tomorrow. Fortunately, my foot feels much better today.
Tonight I made dinner, while the hubby ran to Home Depot. On the menu this evening was smoky chicken with creamy cilantro sauce and farro. This dinner came to us via Blue Apron and their weight watcher approved meals. Accordingly, the meal only had 510 calories, which is pretty good for a meal kit. The recipe was easy to follow and quick. Importantly, it was also really tasty. Naturally, the boys didn’t love the farro with the zucchini and arugula, so I’m looking forward to enjoying it for lunch tomorrow. Lastly, our phone service is still down so if you try to call it will ring, but won’t connect.
