yellow! it’s sunday night and i am still kinda baffled that it’s september. it was six years ago today that my dog, mable, was hit and killed by a car. <3
not a day goes by that i don’t think of her (i actually have her name tattooed on my wrist.. my first and last tattoo in life.)
how about i tell you about my day?! sooo.. as i mentioned, it was day one of the 24 day advocare challenge. everything went according to plan. i took all the prescribed supplements and ate according to the meal plan. i didn’t stray at all and i even stayed away from my nightly dose of fruity pebbles! i got a workout in since i took yesterday off. i drank my gallon of water and didn’t miss drinking coffee. i feel great.. so far so good. i will give you a glimpse into my day and show you my main meals.. but i couldn’t be bothered to snap pics of any snacks.
first of all, i headed up to my mom’s this morning so she could take some “before” photos for me. please don’t cringe at my lack of a tan and the weird farmer-ish tan line on my legs. i probably should have filtered this, haha, oh well..
i weighed in using the zero scale (since i don’t keep track of the actual number that i weigh) and took my measurements. i will report in with the changes as the challenge goes on!
i was a little off today since it was sunday but felt like saturday since tomorrow is a holiday. instead of getting a jump on my usual sunday stuff, i was actually pretty lazy. i fixed a late breakfast (around 11) for marshall and myself.
eggs scrambled with tomatoes fresh from my sister’s garden (marshall’s had cheddar mixed in, too), toasted jack sprat wheat bread, and a juicy brigham city peach. loveee peaches.
i lazed around for awhile, then decided to go to the gym around 1:55. i actually had to make myself go at that time because the gym is only open until 3 on sundays. i didn’t really have a workout in mind, so i made it up as i went.. here’s what i did!
this was actually a fun little routine and took under 30 minutes.. my kind of cardio! i left the gym and when i got out to my car i noticed marshall had sneakily put a new sticker on the back. go pack go! he’s real excited for the season to start.
when i got home i fixed lunch. i definitely needed groceries and didn’t have a lot of options, but i managed to throw this together using what i had on hand.
i made tuna salad with a little light mayo and whole grain mustard and put in on top of butter lettuce, arugula, and a lone yellow bell pepper that was in my fridge. i topped it with balsamic dressing and ate another peach. i had a lunch beggar. those eyes.
the next few hours were way lazy. way. way. way. lazy.
i finally cleaned up and headed out to trader joe’s and whole foods around 6. i took my sweet time grocery shopping because that’s what i do.. and then got home around 8 to cook dinner. i made sweet potato shepherd’s pie. it never looks great in photos, but i promise it is one of the most tastiest dishes i make! sooo good.
randy thought he could stand on my legs to get a good view of marshall eating his dinner. i mean, you can’t see much down on his basset hound level.
it didn’t win him any bites. but he sure is cute!
now i am typing this and celebrating the fact that i don’t have to wake up at 5:30 in the AM tomorrow! can’t wait to sleep in, take the pups to the park, and maybe do some labor day shopping. hope your labor day is fantastic!
1. what is one of the tastiest meals you make?
2. do you have any goals for september?
