LOVE Radiohead. I always think of this song when I hear the word scatterbrained but that very word describes my state of mind lately. I have so many things going on at once that I don’t know what to focus on and when. The good thing I can say about the chaos going on is that it’s all for a common good that’s arising in my life. I had orientation today at the restaurant and by the looks of it I should be hired on, assuming I pass my menu test on Wednesday. I purchased the required books for school and had the chance to check out the little store they have there…so neat! Even neater (don’t care if I just totally made that word up) is that I get 20% off of everything they sell since I am an attending student and you all know how much I love my deals :). We went on a major grocery trip (I’ll have pictures on that tomorrow) and took Ruca to Petco for some new doggie treats to keep her occupied while I’m away on those long days. She’s so freaking spoiled, I hate to see myself when I have a child. Tomorrow we’re finishing up our grocery shopping (we go to a few different places to get everything we need) and purchasing a blender to start making fresh smoothies. I tried talking Jon into getting a Vita-Mix… no way that purchase is going down anytime soon but mark my words, I will have a relationship with one soon!
Yoga and cardio have been on my agenda quite a bit this new year. I had a lovely 75 minute hot yoga class at 7:30 this morning but when I walked into the studio a little after 7 a.m. I felt that surely I had made a mistake by waking up so unnecessarily early. Once class started, all I could concentrate on was my form and my breath which is all a girl needs to do to relax sometimes, right? It worked like a charm and I am now convinced to start working out early in the mornings. Plus, early workouts would compliment my soon-to-be hectic lifestyle. What made my day even better was when I came out of the studio and greeted by the yoga instructor with, “Hey, you have really great form!” … Wait, what? Me? I strive to be the best that I can be and as hard as it is to not compare myself to the effortlessly limber creatures behind me, my form takes priority. It was soo nice to have that recognized and complemented that when I left the studio I was on cloud nine for the rest of the day. Go ahead, laugh.
Oh yeah, and I have some major food-topia pictures of Heather’s chocolate coconut butter I made the other day.
Just like the almond butter, it will begin to clump
But keep up with your scrapping and your patience will get you this.
The most delicious, decadent and rich butter you’ll ever have! I couldn’t stop sneaking little bites as I was trying to take a picture of the finished product. I put mine in the fridge to harden a bit and it tasted like an almond joy candy bar… no joke. I love this stuff and cannot believe I have never been introduced to it before.
