Today was supposed to be my rest day but I decided that I didn’t want to be lazy today so I decided to Cycle for an hour.
Motivational Music Playlist– Crazy Train -Ozzy Osbourne, Bawitha and Cowboy- Kid Rock Evanescence- The Game is Over, Under Pressure-David Bowie, Fat Bottomed Girls-Queen and then I wasted a lot of time searching for classic rock on the Itunes music app. I was just thinking how I remember purchasing and spending so much money on music before Apple had their library music subscription. I love music. It can really change my mood and motivation. There have been times where I have not worked out because I didn’t have headphones. I had even run to the dollar store knowing that they don’t have Bluetooth earbuds, but checking anyway. I am guilty of purchasing really shitty headphones( Kodak makes headphones, who knew?) at the closest store just because I wanted to workout.
My water intake was an improvement (drank 3 hydro flasks worth). Yes, I will make it a goal to drink more tomorrow and I probably will not achieve that goal. Tomorrow is another day. Sigh
Went to Costco to pick up a prescription but did not realize the pharmacy wasn’t open Sunday, so instead of listening to the voice in my head that said, “save money you don’t need anything”, I grabbed a cart. I did restrain myself on purchasing socks ( this month’s goal was to throw out all the socks and buy the same brand because of the sock issue in our house) and only because of that voice in my head saying,” you don’t need to throw away all the socks today”, I grabbed some produce and then searched the aisles for some cool new food. I like to buy shit we don’t need! (another thing I’m working on) I ended up buying healthy nutritious veggie burgers. There was no bad labeling or preservatives and it tasted kinda good, kinda not. I needed to buy some quick meals for the girls because they keep telling me that I have been starving them since becoming a vegan. I love Costco’s chicken and rice bowls and grabbed some nuggets. I went up the aisles like five times looking for frozen french fries. I kept thinking that they have to be there somewhere- who doesn’t sell frozen french fries? Didn’t find them. I grabbed some peanut butter chocolate plant protein (Costco’s brand is the best and reasonably priced) and a bag of pistachios because Woody and I had an hour conversation about them last night.
Work, School, Homelife and Fun
I spent two hours on lessons for Delaney this week. Homeschooling is like planning for a whole class just to have one student complete the work. I miss teaching and sometimes I don’t! I am so thankful for teacher-pay products. We also use Time for Learning which I love! They make life a little easier.
I am currently watching Banshee on HBO max and reading Defending Jacob. I am also researching what to do with a vanilla bean and the difference between dark and clear vanilla extract (just spent fifty dollars to support someone’s marching band and don’t know why I said give me one of each?
Goals for the week:
Practice guitar, 5 days of Spanish, online programs. Walk or run with the dog for at least 20 minutes. Go through boxes in the basement and garage. Make a sell/donate pile. Paint mirror from the thrift store. Make a new recipe. Stretch and Meditate at night. Find somewhere to volunteer. Delete pictures and junk on phone and computer. Clear tabs on the phone. Throw out socks. Drink more water.
