Happy Birthday Drew

Today’s weather was absolutely perfect. It started out with an early morning rain storm at about 6:30, which gave me the motivation to sleep in. The sound of rain is so relaxing. I woke up with the sweet feeling of sore muscles from Jillian Michael’s 30 Day Shred workout video.

Day 4 of warm lemon water. I had a simple bowl of whole wheat berry cereal with bananas for breakfast:


After breakfast, I headed out for a 2 mile walk/run. Florida nature is everywhere and amazing:


I felt so good afterwards that I went right in to Jillian Michael’s Day 3 of the 30 Day Shred videos. Amazing 20 minute workouts that make me sore the next day!!

I was pretty hungry afterwards , so I made a quick lunch of Bubba Burger brand veggie burger with tomatoes, watermelon, and salad with greens and beans:

After lunch, I showered and went to Publix to get my groceries for the weekend before I pick my girlie up tomorrow morning. Then it was off to my sister’s house to celebrate my brother in laws 47th birthday! He is a great man and I love and admire him so much! Happy birthday Drew!!!


We celebrated in quarantine and grilled some delicious filets with mushrooms and onions, asparagus, baked potatoes and tomatoes, with a little slice of ice cream birthday cake for dessert:



I am so excited to get my girlie in the morning!!!

Leftovers, Leftovers

I felt fairly productive today. I got some important legal work and documentation done. But it consumed my morning and I didn’t remember to eat breakfast until 11:00. So I just heated up some leftover veggie quinoa chili:


Then I cleaned the entire house, did laundry and did Day 2 of Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred. I was sore when I woke up this morning and today’s workout was more intense! Yay! I love the feeling of sore muscles. Perhaps pain is an indicator of change and transformation?

Then I had a Zoom meeting and a giant salad for a late lunch at 3:00:


Then my mom came to visit for a bit.

For dinner, I heated up veggie quinoa chili AGAIN! But jazzed it up with a little cheese, sour cream, guacamole, hot sauce and a few chips for scooping:


For dessert, a single glorious square of dark chocolate:
