Don’t Forget to Breath

on December 14, 2011

I think that title has two meanings don’t you?  When my alarm went off at 5:30 this morning I thought I was dreaming.  I was not…:)  I got up and immediately put my workout clothes on.  I find that if I lay them out the night before I have no excuses not to work out.  It worked.

I am really loving The Firm right now.  It was a nice change from what I had been doing.  Once I get the moves down I am a mad woman!  Now to the whole breathing topic.  I noticed that nearly the entire time I was working out I was holding my breath.  Not sure why I was doing this, but it was driving me crazy.  Breathing is one of the most important things you need to do while you work out, but agh! It’s something that I am gonna have to work on. 

Post workout I chomped on some breakfast….Eggs, turkey bacon, and the bottom of a Pumpkin Spice Bagel.  My last one.. 😦

I am a lover of all the Starbucks…the most recent Holiday cup.

My drive to work isn’t all that bad, maybe 15 minutes, but it’s long enough for me to reflect on what my attitude is going to be like for the day.  To reflect on how I am going to treat people.  With kindness??  Working in the public this can be a little difficult sometimes, so I like to prep myself for the day and the drive is perfect for that.

Around 10:30 my tummy began to talk to me so I grabbed a snack…..Pineapple greek yogurt with some Kashi Pumpkin Spice granola on top.  Yum!

On my actual lunch break I went to the salon and had my hair cut… pic, but it’s short…:)

Drum roll……..lunch..  Tuna melt with tons of spinach, provolone cheese and some sweet potato wedges.  It was super filling.

After work I had a date with my niece’s kindergarten class….Their Christmas play was tonight and it was super awesome!  The topic you ask??  It was about Love and how everybody deserves it.  Very cool.
She’s a rock star…:)
As you can imagine it’s was kinda late when I got home so cooking something for dinner was not something that I really wanted to do.  The end result…. A peanut butter, banana, wrap…It hit the spot!
On a lovely Christmas plate…;)
Kind of a long second post, but I hope that you have enjoyed it.  Before I go I wanted to share one last photo with you.  In the summer of 2010 I went on a mission trip to Kazakhstan.  I have been on several, but this was one was pretty special.  Life changing.  So, with that said over the next few posts I am going to try and share as many pictures as I can with you.  I hope to figure out how to put them in their own link…lol!
Some of the ladies that took the Conversational English class we were offtering.
The young lady in the blue (Nastia) was my amazing translator. 🙂 
Hope you have a great night!!
