Spice Up Your Life, Week 7

I am so happy right now. It’s super early on Saturday morning, no one else in my house is awake, and I’m drinking coffee from my Keurig that I can make literally without even getting out of bed. I have a really busy day, but busy with good things:

  • 8:30 am: yoga class
  • 9:45 am: going out to breakfast with Luke
  • 11:15 am – 1:15 pm: training a couple of clients
  • 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm: church Easter party for the kids
  • 4:00 pm: going somewhere new & fun with Luke!

I’m not necessarily happy because of my day filled with good stuff, but because of a couple realizations I’ve had over the last few days. (1) I am 100% positive, without a doubt, that having kids and working in the fitness industry is what I am supposed to do with my life. (2) I work better with a schedule, hence why I made up a generic exercise schedule that I can mix and match and alter a little bit every week. (3) Living on my own is going to solve a lot of the problems I’ve been having lately; this will be happening sooner than I thought…..*hint hint* (4) 17 days from right now I will be on my way to Los Angeles with my wonderful boyfriend!

I also realized that I did a great job at my challenge from last week of creating a sacred space. I started out the week doing Deepak Chopra’s meditation challenge, but got bored of it after a few days. Instead, I turned to doing some Tara Stiles meditation routines each morning. Typically the night before I will pull up a couple of her videos (7-ish minutes each) on my iPad so they are easily accessible to me in the morning. I wake up, drink my coffee and read a few blogs, do my routines, and then get ready for the day. It really gives me a solid mindset for the day. I love it. Anyway, I just ranted about really boring parts of my life. My bad. Where I was heading with this…..

My sacred space is the floor in my room. Yeah, I’m weird. Over it. I love rolling my yoga mat out between my bed and the window and being able to see just a little bit of light through the cracks in my blinds each morning. I love foam rolling. I love laying on my stomach while on my computer. I am always on the floor! So, there’s a little random tidbit about my life. Don’t judge me Smile with tongue out Did you find a “sacred space” for yourself?

Moving on to this week’s challenge!

84. Plan and prepare a seduction dinner.

LOL. That’s all I have to say about that. This book, I swear. It’s got some weird challenges in here. But definitely things that will put us out of our comfort zones! Once again, I’m going to switch around this challenge a bit and say to just simply make dinner for someone! I know that personally I have fallen into this pattern of just kinda eating what is in front of me. I snack like there’s no tomorrow and am just really impatient when it comes to food. I miss cooking and need to get back into it. Once again, will be a lot easier when I get my own place….very, very soon! More details coming soon Smile

This video from Jenna Marbles pretty much describes my eating habits lately perfectly:

“I don’t just eat the popcorn; I EAT the popcorn.” LOL. Yes! I adore her.

Here’s what I’m going to do this week for the challenge:”

  • Have a serious Whole Foods/Trader Joe’s grocery shopping experience on Thursday. And my goal for this trip? Only buy what is on my list. We shall see how that goes.
  • Make a good meal for Luke! What do ya want babe? Better let me know now or you know it’s gonna be some “healthy crap you don’t like.” Smile
  • Make actual meals for myself. I’m super good at assembling things, but really bad at actually incorporating them into one dish. Practice makes perfect.

Who are you going to have a good meal with this week??

  2. oh Jenna Marbles, i saw that and had to laugh.

  3. Your day sounds so much more exciting than my lazy Saturday!

    Make it out of Whole Foods/Trader Joe’s without buying anything extra?! Never would happen for me. There’s always something new that I can’t find at a local supermarket that I just have to have!

  4. BAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA omg I laughed out loud for over a minute when I saw this week’s challenge!! You HAVE to follow it to a T ;) Ok, just kidding but I think it’d be really funny if you did :P Bet Luke would love it too….just saying :D I’m happy that things are looking up, love! You’re making the changes you need to make to find what’s best for you, which is awesome :) Keep it up!!

    Freakin Whole Foods. There’s even something about the smell of it that draws me in. That’s certainly a place where I have to go to with a strict budget.
