An AllBirds Kinda Day

Howdy y’all! How are you doing today? Calliope kitty has taken to protecting me at night by sleeping next to my head on my pillow. She’s a watchful little thing and very loving at night, and I’m very grateful for my little kitty friends.

Breakfast – 9:35 a.m.

Breakfast was my usual fare – egg whites, bacon, and salsa. YUM! I’m planning on acquiring some sausage to mix things up a bit in the morning, but eggs and salsa are my staple.

Lunch – 12:15 p.m.

Lunch was a slice of deer meatloaf with a side of roasted Brussels sprouts, carrots, broccoli, and cauliflower drizzled with Toasted Sesame Dressing. The deer meatloaf was VERY tasty, y’all. I was surprised by how much I enjoyed it.

My AllBirds Wool Loungers came today, and I couldn’t be happier with them – they’re soft, comfortable, and the Kotare Olive color is super cute for fall and winter! I will become a repeat customer for sure! 110% satisfied customer here.

Workout – 1:00 p.m.

We did arms today for about 45 minutes. Luke was tired today, but we did our best and did 4 sets of each machine. Here’s me working out my biceps:

After I did the leg press, I felt a bit vagel (that’s my word for feeling faint in the back of my head where my vagus nerve is), so I stopped there. Luke said that my shoulders are looking better, which was a positive thing to hear for me.

Once we got home, I immediately slipped back into my AllBirds, and I’m just IN LOVE with them. I also made Luke a protein smoothie. 😉

I promise that I *DO* put on makeup and perfume and wear clothes other than workout clothes – here’s my outfit for today (complete with AllBirds Loungers, obviously). My top is Free People and my pants are JAGs from a local boutique, and my little camouflage bracelet is Lokai. My necklace is my trusty James Avery Texas charm. My lips, which I just LOVE, are Jouer Long-Wear Lip Creme Liquid Lipstick in Rose Gold. Highly recommended! The rest of my makeup is minimal today and mostly drugstore products.

Snack #1 – 4:00 p.m.

I wanted some veggies as a snack, so I cut up and salted some red bell pepper, cucumber (one of my old “anorexia-safe foods”), and some baby carrots and placed them in a pine nut hummus container. Delish!Cocktail Hour – 5:00 p.m.

For my usual cocktail, I had a GT’s Kombucha in Guava Goddess. I’m proud to be 272 days alcohol-free! 😉

Dinner – 7:15 p.m.

Dinner was a bit later than usual because I was pretty full from my snack and kombucha, but that’s okay. It’s important to eat when you feel hungry, not just because it’s “time to eat, so you should eat.” I did that bullshit for years, and it did me no favors. Now I eat when I’m truly hungry.

I portioned out about 7 oz. of chicken and baked it in the oven with S+P and BBQ along with a few small sweet potato rounds. I also sauteed up some spinach and mixed it with some spaghetti squash. I placed the chicken and sweet potato on the bed of spaghetti squash and spinach and topped with some Emeril’s vodka sauce and a dash of Parmesan.Alrighty, that’s my eats and workout for the day! Have a lovely night, my friends! I’m sipping on some green tea and watching Kindred Spirits on TLC.
