Blue Apron day 2 and studying

Happy Hump day!!! The week is now more than half over, woot woot!!

This morning I got the call that i wasn’t needed for package delivery today…….HALLELUJAH!!!!!! My right forearm and right butt cheek have noce bruises on them from a good fall yesterday.  

I got to relax and sort of sleep in this morning then make myself a delicious breakfast sandwich. 

After that came studying. I was actually really looking forward to studying today hahahaha. 

I got through one module then took a break and did the reading on a second module. I got up to cook my Blue Apron meal.

There are short lecture videos and activities that come with studying so I did a little multitasking 

Yep, I had videos playing while I cooked. 

I got through 2 entire modules and a practice midterm today. 

Here is the finished food product 

In the PM I started to read one of my mom’s presents to me

I am so excited to garden this year. It will be a noce break between working and studying. 

And I am soooo looking forward to all the amazing meals I will be able to cook with fresh food. The amazing boyfriend has agreed to help me with the garden as well 🙂 added bonus. 

Have you ever had straight off the vine/branch/stem/out of the ground food?

Weekend Wrap up

The rain managed to actually stay away most of the weekend which was lovely.  It hit Saturday night and late today afternoon/evening.

Last night poor Artemis didnt feel too good. Her tummy was making all kinds of crazy sounds and she wasn’t hungry. She got better though thankfully and when i woke up her food was eaten and she has gotten better and better today.

My guess is she either ate something she shouldn’t have or just had a little upset tummy. Either way it just needed to work its way out of her system which it did today.

The roomies and i FINALLY took our tree down…….yes i mean Christmas tree lol. It only took us until March..not too bad right? Lol

On another but way worse roomie note, my roommates care got stolen out of our driveway last night?! I feel so bad for her. I am so thankful my car has an alarm and GPS so the cops can track it if anything ever happens. Knock on wood.

Other sad news i own almost 5k in medical bills from my surgery in October. Insurance denied my paying more because it was an out of network provider. Oy, this being an adult stuff rocks. Thankfully i can set up a payment plan.

In happier news…..
The tomato and pepper starters are exploding!!!

image

I am so excited!

Also i ran 4 miles today!!! And the 4 miles we outside!!!!

image

image

Artemis ran the first 1.5 miles with me then she got tired so i dropped her off at home. Shes getting over  her tummy troubles so i didn’t want to push it. 

So i workout a pretty good amount. These are the things that help keep me going. Along with pre-workout, protien and recovery but ill talk about that another day.

image

I also did a lot of reading this weekend which was glorius.

image

Do you take any suppliments?

What’s the weather like where you are?

If you have dogs, do they run with you?

Tuesday tangents

Howdy!

I decided to enjoy a day off from my calorie counting and be bad lol.

Lunch

image

Was freaking delicious and i loved every bite of it!!!! Of course today i ran slower than a slug.

image

Damn the dollar bins at target.

I had to hit target to get stocking stuffers for my roommates. We did our Christmas last night.

image

I finally caved and got an Eos chopstick. I like it but am not 100% sold yet.

image

I failed at wrapping this year.

image

Every year my roommate C makes ornaments for everyone who lives here :mrgreen: my initials are on the other side.

image

I got this awesome comfy sweater from my roommate E. How awesome is this pattern?!

image

This was C’s gift to me. She bought me a luau while we are in Hawaii!!

image

My mom got this for me hahahaha along with a kickass REI raincoat that is super cute. Its fashionable and functional.

image

But i have to admit, this is what i got most excited about lol. Its a calendar!!! I’ll get new tips and facts everday!!!

How was your holiday??

The rest of my weekend and blue apron

The rest of my weekend was mostly relaxing.

image

image

I got in some workouts and Artemis is slowly getting better at hanging out with me while i workout in our little home gym.

I took her to the dog park for the first time this weekend but it was a muddy rainy mess so i didn’t take pictures.

I made blue apron mushroom and chard quiche, though i halved the amount of mushrooms they gave me and added red onion and put in an extra egg.

I really only expected one quiche and was super suprised when it was two mini quiche. I turned it into six meals!!!! All i need to do is add a small side or make my snack between meals a little bigger but man totally got my money’s worth on that meal.

Ok sleep time for me!!!!!

Oh for a romance update i have re-signed up for eharmony so in a few weeks you should look forward to some dating hijinks posts.

Night!!!

How was your weeknd?

Weekend Wrap up

And another weekend comes to a close.   This morning my roommate C and i went to yoga at 24 hour fitness. Today was a good class i got really meditative and realized i need to do yoga every week to stretch everything put with all my training.
I made myself a delicious breakfast

image

Then relaxed a bit.
After the relaxation on went downstairs to our mini ‘home’ gym and ran 2 miles, walked a bit then biked for 40 minutes while watching the movie Taken.

I really should not be attracted to a man who could be my dad lol.

While working out i got a text from the BF he is safe in India lol. He found a little cafe with Wi-Fi so he was able to text me for a few.

Tonight the roomies and i did a little Christmas decorating

And snacking

While listening to Christmas music.

This Christmas will be very bitter sweet for me. I always felt like my mom’s house was still home but that is gone and i don’t really feel like where i am now is home and i feel in-between familes. I have grown up and my ‘family’ from childhood doesn’t really exist anymore but i have created my own family yet.

Christmas is what 12 days away and i still have no idea what I’ll be doing. No idea if I’ll be chilling at home alone like thanksgiving, if the bf and i will be spending it together, if we will try the meet the parents again, if I’ll go to my roommates family Christmas…….no clue.

What are your holiday plans?
How was your weekend?
