Happy Martin Luther King Jr. day! I hope this holiday is both reflective and relaxing.
Do you have the day off? I am free as a bird minus a meeting for a group project. Luckily we are meeting at a coffee shop, so I have my eyes on an afternoon cappuccino.
WEEK-IN REVIEW (joining in with Meghan’s link-up)
-I completed my first full week of classes! No lie, by Thursday I was wanting to take a nap on my work desk. Switching back to waking up at 6 am instead of 7:30 or 8 is going to take me a few weeks to get used to. I think I am going to really like my classes and I’m really excited about some of the upcoming projects.
-The most exciting thing from last week was finding out I was accepted into the dietetic internship I applied to! All your support on my “celebration time” post made me smile ear-to-ear. You rock.
-I celebrated with a burger and fries while Terry had wings. (Fun fact: this was the first time I’ve ordered a burger with fries at a restaurant in 8+ years!) Based off y’all’s responses, the majority of you agree that burgers > wings.
-I had successes in the kitchen. Like homemade tortillas. I cooked venison to fill the tortillas and the meat tasted GOOD, which really surprised me. Who knew I’d be cooking venison by year 2016?
-I have a fun recommendation. Next time you make a box of Annie’s mac and cheese (or any of the relatively healthy boxed ones), add a fried egg on top. Totally kicks up the somewhat bland flavor up a notch. I also recommend boiling some finely chopped cauliflower with the noodles for extra veggie power.
-I made a bangin’ frittata for two for Saturday’s lunch (which my Instagram friends affirmed that I could indeed call brunch). Four eggs, chopped chicken sausage, ~1 ounce of cheese, 1/2 cup almond milk, and spinach was all it took to create a yummy frittata for two. On the side was roasted yellow potatoes, my favorite of the potato family.
-I went to the gym 5 times! I was starting to worry myself that I had completely tanked any motivation to workout, but it turns out I just needed a routine to reorient myself with the gym. My friend Kelly even taught me how to use a few new-to-me machines, so my excitement for the weight room has also increased.
-I went grocery shopping AND wrote us a nice little meal plan. Here’s hoping that helps with organization!
-I had a really nice, long conversation with my bff Rachel who turned 25 this past week. She’s been my best friend since fourth grade and I honestly feel like our souls are connected. You know that connection I’m talking about?
-Finally, I sat on my booty and watched the entire Panthers vs Seahawks game. I was feeling nervous in last half, but luckily we pulled through! Check out Terry’s 1998 jacket that happens to be a snug fit for me. I could pull it off, right? Maybe?
Welp, that’s all I got. It’s probably best that I don’t write down all my mini-accomplishments since I tend to be a little long winded explaining most of them, haha!
Happy week’s beginning!
