Hey everybody! I know it’s super weird for me to be writing a recap post two days after my last one, but I missed you guys! I realized that I have all of this time right now so I should be using it to better my blog and connect more. Let me know what you think!
I woke up to a gorgeous day outside! I opened the windows, grabbed an iced coffee, and did my devotional. I have been using this cold brew maker and then adding a little oatmilk. So good!
Today’s devotional was all about forgiveness. We have the ability and responsibility to forgive others because God forgives us every day. I needed that reminder! It’s not easy…
Chance and I headed out for a two mile walk in the bright sunshine after my morning devotional. I can’t explain how these walks have helped my quarantine day moods. I love taking the time for myself and using it to better myself.
Besides just getting in the physical exercise, I love listening to my favorite podcasts. Some are for entertainment and some are also motivational. They leave me feeling so happy! These are the two podcasts I listened to while I walked and worked out today.
When I got home from my walk, I did some work with my dumbbells and booty bands. I have found so many good work outs on Instagram and YouTube. Sometimes I follow them, and sometimes I take different exercises from a few different work outs to switch it up.
I made my smoothie and grabbed a verb bar to eat with Kyle while he had a break from class. We sat on the deck and watched Parks and Rec while we ate! My smoothie had frozen blueberries, frozen spinach, chia seeds, and oatmilk.
I headed out for another walk after eating. I did 3.4 miles this time! These hills are such a challenge, but I love how strong I am feeling while doing a work out I really enjoy.
My lunch consisted of spinach with green goddess dressing, turkey slices, pickles, and cauliflower crackers. I also had a big bowl of watermelon but ate it too fast to get a picture! Kyle grilled chicken and veggies, and I baked potatoes for dinner a couple of hours later.
With Kyle getting back into school, I’m trying to be productive while he is studying. I cleaned the kitchen and began wiping down the walls after dinner. Then I showered, drank my Kava tea, and finished Still Me before falling asleep.
Same morning routine, different day! The daily practices I have been doing while off work are things I am going to incorporate into my work life once I return to nursing. My sister bought me the journal pictured above for a Christmas gift, and I love it. I have began writing my prayers into this every morning, and it helps keep me accountable to my quiet time.
My morning walk was almost 3 miles, but I had to cut it short because I had an interview to get ready for.
I had the same smoothie that I had on Monday after my walk. I took the verb bar with me in case I needed a pick me up after my interview!
I had an interview with Vanderbilt Home Care today. I want to wait until things are a little more final with the outcome before I talk too much about it, but it was interesting going to an interview with a mask on! haha Most of their office is working from home so it was weird seeing an office so empty. I was surprised I got to come in to do the interview in person, but it went well!
After the interview, I originally stopped by Kroger to pick up a few things, but their electricity was out! So obviously they weren’t open. I headed to Walmart because it was so close and picked up a few things we needed. With both of us home all day, we go through a lot of food! I hate making multiple trips a week because I spend more money that way, but hopefully I’ll get adjusted to it soon!
I listened to this episode of the Happy Hour while I walked and drove to my interview! It was fun to listen to Gretchen talk with her twin and hear their stories of twin life, living in a different country, and growing up!
When I got home, I was starving! I made a lunch of a cabbage salad mix with green goddess dressing, turkey slices, fruit, cauliflower crisps, and pickle slices. I know these meals are repetitive, but I am loving them right now! Then I continued to apply to different jobs while I had another glass of iced coffee.
Kyle grilled burgers and veggies for dinner, and the burgers were amazing! I don’t know how he does it, but he takes something so simple and makes it delicious.
After Kyle went back to studying, I watched more of Big Little Lies on Hulu and made a chore list. I literally went through every room and wrote down every single thing I need to complete for that room to be considered clean. I know that sounds crazy, but it helps me to have it all written out. Next I need to figure out a cleaning schedule. If you have any tips, let me know!
I know you’re probably sick of all my podcast pictures, but I just love them! I listened to the above episode while I cleaned up the kitchen and got ready for bed. I had my Kava tea like always, and started a new book!
I hope you guys enjoyed a little mini recap. Let me know what you think!
