Hi guys! Yesterday some of the headaches that come along with moving reared their head. I tried to get internet set up at home yesterday but since someone has to come out and install it, there’s a bit of a delay. I ended up setting an appointment for Wednesday so for the next day or two I’ll probably be doing a lot of work from random spots around town with free wifi like I am right now!
I hoped to get out of the house yesterday after lunch to blog and work from a coffee shop and use their internet, but I ended up waiting around for longer than expected for someone to come out and activate our home security system. Hopefully today will be a little smoother and things will be a little more normal! On the good news front, our new couch will be delivered on Thursday – a solid two weeks ahead of schedule. Woop! (We ended up ordering the Piedmont sectional in linen in “Option B Reversed” from Havertys during their Labor Day sale.)
Aside from some hiccups, overall yesterday was rather productive! Since I was stuck at home, I dedicated my time to hours of unpacking and organizing and made some serious headway. Our kitchen and living room are done, my home office is no longer in shambles (though I want to “refresh” it a bit) and we have two big boxes filled with stuff to donate. Progress!
The highlight of my day came when I saw Brittany in the morning! She brought me a sweet housewarming gift that has already been put to good use.
Apparently she knows I can never have too many candles. Thank you, Brittany, for always making me smile!
Workout + Breakfast
Today began the usual way with a Pure Barre workout. The thigh work we did in today’s class was killer. It involved lots of wall sits (technically barre sits since we weren’t against the wall). My quads were on fiiiire!
After barre, I drove home to fix myself breakfast. It began with a green juice I grabbed from the fridge and ended with some protein oats!
I used a packet of Manitoba Harvest chocolate plant-based hemp protein I got from the IDEAWorld expo last month, a packet of Chex gluten-free oatmeal the company sent me a while ago and milk to make the oatmeal and loved the chocolaty flavor.
I was pleasantly surprised by the hemp protein! I added a few drops of NuNaturals liquid vanilla stevia to the oats and thought that helped give them a greater punch of sweetness without overwhelming the bowl.
They looked like death but tasted delicious.
Hope you’re having a great day so far!
