Happy Friday

My first thought this morning before I opened my eyes was to give my day to God. Starting my day in prayer is the absolute best thing I can do for myself. It fills me with peace, knowing that whatever the day may bring, it is all in God’s hands, and knowing that lessens any stress and anxiety.


I did my last shot of wheatgrass (I need to stock up), and headed outside for a 30 minute leisurely nature walk. It was a beautiful morning!


Then I had a banana before going to pick up my girlie. We had to stop at the grocery store on the way home. We spent the morning snuggling, chatting and playing, then had lunch together. Leftover garbage soup, she loved it too!


It was a lazy day at home complete with a thunderstorm nap and visit from grandma. Then we got ready for an early dinner out at Texas Roadhouse. Yum!


Overall, it was a great day. The best days are the simple ones spent with loved ones. My heart is full and peaceful tonight, and my eyes are sleepy. Good night.

Garbage Soup

This morning I was itching to get outside and move! I took a shot of wheat grass before heading out the door for 4 miles of mostly walking, a little running. After getting home and showering and doing some chores, it was closer to lunch than breakfast, so I made a turkey sandwich with spinach/watermelon juice:


After lunch, I worked a while before heading to a much needed hair appointment. I can’t believe I have gone a year without a hair cut!


I had to run a few errands on the way home. I was hungry and thankful for my crock pot garbage soup. I had cleaned the fridge out earlier and threw a bunch of leftovers in the crock pot to make a use it or lose it/ clean out the fridge/ garbage soup. This is what I saved from going in the garbage:

-turkey sausage



-green, red, orange, and yellow peppers

-red onion


Then I added a can of cannellini beans, a can of diced tomatoes, 2 cups of chicken broth, adobo seasoning, Italian seasoning, salt and pepper.

It turned out great!


And for some inspirational words of the day:


What kind of life are you trying to create?
