All was quiet on CSM last night. I just needed a little bit of time to unwind and disconnect from everything. Jon and I took Olive and went on a walk, which we haven’t done in awhile bc we’ve been so busy. I’ve missed our walks so much!
Yesterday afternoon I took a trip to a new Farmer’s Market on our university’s campus. It was fairly small, but each farmer had a good array of fruits and veggies. I was hoping to pick up some swiss chard, and while they didn’t come through for me on that, I did score all of this
I love all the different shapes of produce you find at the Farmer’s Market. When food is grown naturally, you don’t get the perfect, uniform look that you see in the grocery stores. It reminds me of how fresh and natural these veggies are. Beautiful!
It also reminds me of us as humans. We are all so different in shape and size…and that is something to celebrate! It’s our individuality and uniqueness that makes us beautiful. I know I need a frequent reminder of that! All too often I find myself envying someone else – their job, their body, their personality – but I try to redirect my thoughts to focus on what I love about myself!
This morning I got up and enjoyed a bowl of plain soy yogurt, fresh berries and raw oatmeal before heading off to PiYo class!
A little while after getting back home I snacked on a whole wheat tortilla and some salsa. I usually try to base snacks around fruits/veggies, but when a serious craving strikes…I have no choice but to listen!
I’ll be spending the rest of the day working on Outbox tasks and practicing PiYo. Things are moving along with preparing to teach. Slowly, but surely.
Tonight Jon and I are going to make a run to the city, so I can look for a dress to wear to the Healthy Living Summit cocktail party! Hopefully I’ll be able to find something on sale! Wish me luck:)
What is one thing you can celebrate about yourself? It can be something about your body, personality…whatever! And you can’t avoid commenting on this post because you don’t want to answer the question;) We all have wonderful amazing characteristics, and it’s good for us to remind ourselves of those things.
I’ll get the ball rolling: I love that I have a high sense of compassion for people. My heart breaks so deeply when I see other people hurting.
