2 February goals & detoxing
I hope you are having a lovely day.
I went to bed with a headache and woke up with a migraine. Juuuust peachy. Crossing my fingers Imitrex kicks in so I can get on with my day.
Lets talk about setting goals for February.
I’m not feeling like being an overachiever right now, so I’m keeping them simple & attainable.
Two things I’d like to accomplish:
- Increase workout time & intensity. Now that I am definitely on the mend, I feel confident my body can handle it. My focus will be cycling, strength training, long walks & physical therapy.
- Declutter spare bedroom, file or shred paperwork & find a CPA. <-Just add dishes to this list and it’s pretty much chores I despise doing. But it will be so therapeutic when it’s done.
Please hold me to these. 🙂
Rewinding a bit…
Sunday was low key, which is just what we needed. I went to physical therapy in the morning so that frees up an afternoon during the week. Then made a pit stop for coffee on the way home to fire up the grill for bacon wrapped jalapeno poppers, stuffed mushrooms & sausage stuffed peppers. Whole Foods did all the prepping, Mike did all the grilling and I did all the…nothing. Well, I did help eat & cleaned up, so that has to count for something, right?
After stuffing my face, I went for a pre game walk along the beach. Mike & I did this same loop a couple weeks ago and I paid dearly for it. I’ve come a long way since then & felt confident about it this time.
Never stop exploring.
A little while later, I made lazy girl potato skins. Because BACON. This was a total Pinterest win!
Monday was all about a bacon/buffalo wing sauce/salt detox. On top of all this delicious food, we’ve been eating out a little more than I’d like, so I spent some time meal prepping for the week. I feel better already.
Roasted butternut squash, boiled eggs, strawberries & harvest grain mix. Unpictured, a spinach & romaine salad.
With a side of creeper staring at me. Weirdo.
Share your goal(s) for the month if you have any.
What are your least favorite chores?
If you meal prep, share your favorites or shortcuts.
I’m no pro here, but I steam grains like the harvest blend above in a rice cooker. 1 cup of grains to 2 cups water. With my track record for cooking, you might want to follow the directions on the package.
