Soccer Mom. (Minus the Kids. Psssh. Minor Details)
I felt like a soccer mom tonight. Except… minus the kids and minus the soccer (I gotta admit sometimes I’m so busy I have no clue how mothers embrace the chaos. And (confession) sometimes I think I’ll epically fail as a mom as I love sleep too much, am too selfish for it, and at the end of the day procrastinate and am way too lazy to constantly entertain little minds… huh. So there’s that. As I really do want them someday.
ANYWHO (whoa. that was a total side-track)
Today I actually felt VERY overwhelmed from this whole paleo thing. I stuck to it perfectly again (high-five!), but around 2pm today I definitely felt a desire for a cold, delicious coke, or treat, or big burger to bite into. I have a feeling the next few days are going to get harder and harder (eeek, so scared about the weekend) before I break into the “normal” mode. I do, however, trust myself, but I’m still nervous as I really want to make sure I learn a lot from doing this challenge, and create habits that last (despite me currently doing three things on this list of what-not-do-to. yikes).
Today was this:
8:30 - 5:00 - Work
5:30 - 6:30 - Crossfit (crazy, hard, awesome, WOD - see below)
7:00 - 8:30 - Met a friend from Canada for dinner (stuck to paleo. Boo yea!)
8:30 - 8:45 - Grocery Shopping (UGH. Paleo is SOOO expensive)
8:45 - 8:46 - Feeling flustered from my “to-do” list, I opened my bedroom door to find my full mirror (this one!) had fallen to the ground and shattered everywhere. E.v.e.r.y.w.h.e.r.e. I stood there for at least a full minute processing how pretty, dangerous, and awful this was.
8:46 - 9:02 - Cleaned & vacuumed my room like a ninja
9:02 - 9:07 - Laundry sorted into machine
9:07 - 9:20 - Shower. Cleanse. Ponder life. Stand in shower and see how hot I can get the water without it burning my skin
9:20 - 9:45 - Bake this delicious paleo blueberry crumble. Haley commented on my blog earlier today, at the exact moment I was searching the web for a recipe - thank you!
9:45 - 10:15 - Prepare (paleo) breakfast & lunch tomorrow.
10:15 - 10:20 - Switch laundry over
11:00 -11:20 - Waste. Time. On. Internet. And. Respond. To. Emails.
11:20 - now - BLOG. Debate if I should watch The Vampire Diaries… no! it’s too late Liz! SLEEP!
11:30pm - 7:07am - Be fast asleep and dreaming of galloping through a meadow on a unicorn over a rainbow with John Mayer singing to me from the clouds.
Clockwise: Crossfit’s WOD / me being all sweaty and weird / Melbourne / Matt & me (this pic has nothing to do with this post, but I miss him right now, that’s all).
Clockwise: Tomorrow’s breakfast (2 eggs, mashed banana, cinnamon, natural sweetner: cook like a pancake - recipe also thanks to Haley | Blueberry Crumble for tomorrow’s morning tea | Roasted veggies (for tomorrow’s lunch) | Tonight’s dinner! So paleo and so delicious.
