I had a great start to the week, and I thought I would share with you! I hope you had a good start too!
Sunday night we watched the eclipse. I wanted to see it before the eclipse started because the news said it would appear over sized. They were right, it looked huge!
The whole eclipse was magical! I kept going outside about every 10 minutes so I could look at it. I’m sure sometime in my life I have seen one of these before, but I can’t remember when. I was completely fascinated! It was so neat how the moon turned red!
I took a ton of pictures, but they didn’t turn out that great. I tried with my phone and with my camera, but neither of them would zoom far enough to make it look as big as it did. I want a new camera, but I have no idea what to get. I’ve been looking at Cannons. If you have any suggestions or advice please email me or leave it in the comments. I need one that zooms and also one that has a sports setting.
The moon was still big and bright yesterday morning. I had to snap a picture of it. I was trying to drive at the same time, so it’s a little blurry, but it was just so pretty I couldn’t resist.
Yesterday for lunch, I had the BEST salad! I don’t know if I was just really hungry (thanks steroids!) or if it was just that good. But, I fixed a spinach salad with grilled chicken and avocado and mixed it with Skinny Girl Balsamic Vinaigrette. It was pretty plain, but let me say it was AMAZING! I could have eaten another one! I also had a side of hummus with carrots and broccoli. The salad was so good, I made another one to have for lunch today! I just love avocado, I think it makes everything better. And, it’s good for you!
After lunch, I did a Blogilates ab workout. It was so hard, but I’m feeling it today, so that’s a good sign. I’m really getting into this. My muscles are really stretching, and it feels good. I used to stretch all the time, but I haven’t in a while, like I should. So, this is a nice change. I subscribed to the calendar on the app, so I have a different workout every day.
I also like that I have found a whole community of Blogilates users on instagram. The pictures that they post are so inspirational, and they are all so supportive of one another. It’s really fun, and a fun way to change up my workouts. I’m really missing running. I am so frustrated by my leg, but I go back this week to see what’s next. Unfortunately, the steroids haven’t seemed to help any. I actually think it’s hurting worse now than it was. I don’t know if this is because before I was pushing through the pain and ignoring it, and now that I’m actually having to sit around, I feel it more. I don’t know, but it’s really annoying!
Last night, Jeremy cooked dinner for me. I love when he cooks me dinner, not because I don’t like too, but because it’s nice to have a night off every now and then. Plus, he is an amazing cook, but he just doesn’t do it often. So, anytime he offers, I get really excited! I don’t even mind cleaning up the mess! I just like to sit in the kitchen and watch him. When we were dating, he used to cook for me all the time. I think he was just showing off. 🙂 For dinner, he made ham and cheese omelets and toast, and it was awesome! He knows how much I like breakfast foods.
In other news, Jake has decided that he likes to have his food on a paper plate! He is so funny! Ever since he was a baby, he has laid down to eat. When he was little, he would lay in the food bowl and eat. We have tried to break him of that, but he will go hungry before he will stand up and eat. Then I feel bad because he will just lay there and stare at his bowl with this sad look on his face, so I have to feed him. He knows it works on me every time! But, he loves the plate. It can be right next to his bowl of food, and he will only eat what’s on the plate. We have tried all kinds of different bowls, but he doesn’t like them. He’s so weird!
I know this post was a little bit all over the place, but it was a good start to the week, so I wanted to share.
Question – has anyone upgraded to the Windows 10 yet? I did it last night, and am figuring it out. It’s a little different, but at the same time familiar. Weird. LOL What do you think of it?
Help me with a camera!! Please??
