…I would wish you a blessed Memorial Day (if you live in the US)! If you have the day off, I hope it’s filled with relaxation, sunshine, reflection, and good food! If you’re working/not living in the US, I hope you have a great day anyway 🙂
Always grateful for the valiant and selfless men and women who protect our nation.
…I would tell you that I can check off week one of work at the rehab hospital! It was a looooong week, (but not luxuriously long like our time at Fiona’s summer house the week before). Starting a new job, meeting new people, and
not doing anything stupid being on my best behavior is exhausting, which is to be expected. That being said, I am so stoked and thankful for this job. Example of excitement: I get to help with pool therapy!!!
…I would tell you that breakfasts this past week have been fabulous. With work, I’ve had to make a lot of quick yet filling breakfasts. And they must have the “trifecta” because I’m stubborn and obsessive.
Greek yogurt with cinnamon, nutmeg, blueberries, banana, granola, and maple walnut peanut butter (probz one of my favorite peanut butters ever)
overnight oats with berries and granola
peanut butter banana toast + Greek yogurt with cinnamon, nutmeg, and berries
Kylie’s “banana pudding“
…I would tell you that weekend breakfast = pancakes.
Kylie’s simple paleo pancake with Greek yogurt + maple peanut butter + maple syrup + glass o’ milk
Davida’s green silver dollar banana pancakes with all the same works
…I would tell you that I will be that gal who wears dress pants with sneakers. I am on my feet all day at work, and I care about my feet (as a future physical therapist and as a bipedal human being), so fashion will have to take the back seat. Not that I’m fashionable anyway.
…I would tell you that I get employee gym perks! The employee gym is a dungeon, but it’s nice to have access to some heavier weights and machines.
…I would tell you that moves and grooves have been downright sweat fests thanks to the hot weather.
On Wednesday, I walked + did some random plyometrics and drills outside, and I’m pretty sure tiny bugs were flying into me and dying in my sweat.
…I would tell you that I had something akin to baby food before my workout yesterday.
My girl Christina @foodietunes gave it to me one day this past semester (or two semesters ago?), and I actually really liked it!
…I would tell you that I had these Performix BCAAs (that I won from a Fit University giveaway) after a couple workouts this weekend. I need to go back into my exercise physiology notes to see what BCAAs actually do, haha. They’re super tasty though! “Blue Razz Ice” flavor— so nostalgic.
thank you for sending me these, Sarah!
…I would tell you that I need to shower so badly as I type this, but I locked a fat fly in my bathroom, and I don’t want to deal with it right now.
…I would tell you that I saw Daliza this weekend!!! She got us into a movie for free since she works at the theater. We watched Love & Friendship, which is a smaller-scale movie based on an early Jane Austen novella.
I was expecting the movie to be very serious, and I could barely understand the characters’ old-fashioned British accents at the beginning, but as the movie went on, I was pleased to discover that this film is HILARIOUS. If there’s a small indie-film-theater around you, check this out! (Julia, I feel like you’d love this!)
Then Daliza treated me to Cold Stone (I got “Cheesecake Fantasy” in a waffle cone, OMG), and we walked around, catching up and inadvertently pouring melted ice cream all over the streets/our hands/faces.
…I would thank you all very deeply for your condolences and love regarding Katie’s passing ♥︎
…I would tell you that I’m going to go shower now and face that fly. With God, all things are possible. –Matthew 19:26
