2017 is starting off right!
+ Week one of my health reset was a success! Frankly, it was pretty hard to not eat all that bad stuff and I thought about it every.single.day. At the start of my detox, we had dinner reservations at a Mexican restaurant and tickets to a show and I kept to my detox by not eating grains (hello, no nachos/salsa?!) and ordered seared fish and salad. That's amazing, right? But I did stuff my face with guac because guac is allowed and not eating guac is dumb.
What's even more amazing is that there's still a 3/4 bottle of wine in my kitchen that mocks me every time I open the fridge.
+ Bought a groupon for 2 months of unlimited yoga for $70 and my first class was core conditioning on Wednesday. It was a good workout but I'm going to sound like a total ahole bro right now and admit that I wasn't used to the (slower) pace. At my gym, my trainer works us super hard and makes us go as fast and as hard as we can to crank out as many reps of *insert exercise here* in a limited amount of time...that's the pace I'm used to so when the instructor at Wednesday's class shouted "100 crunches!" I did them double time (as per muay thai). When I was done, the rest of the class was still at 50.
+ I love catching Kayla reading quietly by herself. It makes this mama bookworm so proud that she loves to read as much as I do!
+ Grinding fresh coffee, as much as I hate doing this manually, just tastes so.much.better. And I don't want an electric one because I heard the heat from the motor actually changes the flavour of the coffee (heats up the grounds while grinding the beans).
+ Made my bestie's son a hat for Christmas. This patch only took A MONTH AND A HALF to arrive at my house because Canada Post decided to go on vacation in December. Thanks to Kristen for sending it but seriously, Canada Post took their sweet fucking time getting this to my house and I'm now just delivering this Christmas gift. Rage.
+ Planning for the new year. Switched to my polkadot Kikki K planner and excited to use it!
+ Funnies: Anyone else a LOTR fan?
(this one made me laugh so hard)
I go back to work as of Monday (boo) but it's been a wonderful, glorious and long holiday.
