second time around

19 Jul

Thank you all for the wonderful comments this morning!  You guys totally made my day!  Well…you and Foodbuzz🙂  lol.

I really do appreciate your support tremendously.  ChiaSeedMe would not be the same without you.

After yesterday’s 7 hours of driving and 8 hour certification class, I just could not pull myself out of bed on time this morning!  I slept in until Jon left for world at 8am, then finally lured myself out of bed by envisioning a refreshing and energizing juice. mmm.

1 beet, 1 apple, 1 pear, 2 carrots

Totally did the trick:)

I also managed to make it to the gym and crank out a 5k on the treadmill.  It was a tough run…but I’m really trying to start pushing myself more.  Instead of focusing on the discomfort, I want to focus more on the satisfaction of sprinting that last mile….or running it 20 seconds faster. Whatever it may be.  It really worked today, and I felt so great!

Lunch was leftovers from the other night.

stir-fry veggies with bulgur, chick peas and chias

I had mentioned before that this stir-fry sauce I made was a total fail…but honestly, it tasted better today than it did the first time.  I kinda liked it!

Later on I snacked on a brown rice cake with natural pb, sliced banana a chia seeds – one of my favorite snacks:)

Dinner tonight was leftover enchiladas.  muahahaha.

Today when I met with Mohammad for our tutoring session, he had some bad news to tell me – he’s moving!  This was totally out of the blue.  Basically (we learned that word today:) he just isn’t happy with the classes he’s taking at the institute here, so he’s moving to OKC to attend a different one. Wednesday will be our last meeting together.  I’m really going to miss it because I’ve been enjoying tutoring a lot!

So, you guessed it.  That leaves me jobless once again.  And once again, I’m just trusting that God has something better for me. It’s not easy, but I’m turning away from lies and believing truth.  Something that I’m getting to work on a lot lately:)

In other news…

…this little guy left us yesterday.  While Olive certainly has a little more peace in her life, Jon and I are kinda missing him.

Well, I’m off to cuddle with the husband.  What a great day it’s been; let’s try to top it tomorrow!

And a couple questions for you guys because I love getting to know more about you!  What better way to find out more about you guys than hearing about your lovable fur babies? Or lack thereof;)

Are you a dog person or a cat person? Or neither?
What kind of pet(s) do you have and what are their names?

    I love all the juices I see in blogs – they look so delicious! What juicer do you use? I might need to consider looking into one 😉

    I’m definitely a dog person. They’re always so friendly and happy to see you, plus I’m allergic to cats so that’s kind of an automatic dislike lol. Our family had an amazing dog named Sandy, but unfortunately she was old and had numerous health problems, and we had to put her down a little over a year ago 😦 I still miss her, and when I finish school I’d love to get another dog.

      Hey girl! I absolutely love my juicer, and it was very inexpensive!

      You can read the review I did on it here: Let me know if you have any other questions about it.

      So sorry about your family dog…that is so difficult. People who aren’t dog lovers don’t understand what it’s like to go through that. It’s like they are part of the family!

    I love cats and dogs, want both, and have neither! Sad times. We rent a top floor apartment so it wouldn’t be fair. One day though we are defo getting two of each 🙂 xxx

    I love rice cakes with almond butter…mmmmm. That’s my dessert most nights. I have 2 dogs, they are both rescues. Madeline (aka Maddie or Madness the Badness) will be 7 this fall. Heath (our sweet sweet goofball) is 5 this summer. They are both parti cocker spaniels. Adorable and rotten!

    I used to be a dog person then I married a cat person. We have 2 calico kitties: Josie and Tigerlily. But after having my children I’m becoming less of an animal person all together :-/
