Good morning, everybody! I hope you all had an amazing Fourth of July doing all of your favorite things. We had an amazing weekend with Kyle’s family, and I am so thankful.
I woke up Monday morning and remembered to drink my Mag water and take my vitamins.
I went on a run this morning before my first day of orientation! I felt so good after, and I’m glad I beat the 90 degree heat.
After I showered and got ready, I made a smoothie and did my morning quiet time. My smoothie had frozen spinach, blueberries, and strawberries, oatmilk, and chia seeds. I’ve really been enjoying Jesus Calling this month,
I am loving my home office! It’s not totally finished, but I am very happy about it right now. I love being downstairs and in the open. I feel less trapped and concentrate a lot better. I know that sounds weird, but it works for me!
I had some cantaloupe and granola during my orientation. One of the many perks of working from home! I also wore a tshirt, leggings, and slippers. What a dream!
My first day of orientation was great! I am pretty excited to get stared.
After work, I headed to start giving plasma again! Everything went well, and it was a pretty quick visit.
Kyle texted me while I was at plasma and asked if I wanted Mexican for dinner. UM YES!
We’ve been married for one year today! We celebrated over the weekend, which you can read about here, but we saved our cake for today. We had it in the freezer since our wedding, and it actually was DELICIOUS! It was so fun to bring back the best day of our life in this little way, and I was so surprised that it was so good.
Chance and I headed out on another run this morning. I love progressing through the C25K app and building up my endurance again. I’m also super happy that I am excited about running again.
Vitamins, Magnesium water, and a smoothie. My go to morning fuel! These pill packs have helped me stay on track with my vitamins every morning. Also much cheaper than the alternative pill packs!
My day looked pretty similar to yesterday. I remembered to drink my greens today, and I needed them after Mexican last night. I have orientation this week and next week from 10-3 Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday. They give us a lot of time to work on our own, complete our courses, and ask questions. Our supervisors are extremely nice and supportive, and there are only 6 of us in this training group. I’m so excited!
I completely forgot to take any pictures in the evening! So sorry..
Kyle had his first simulation training on campus this morning! I’m so glad he could get out of the house and do some hands on learning.
I did not work today so I used the time to get the house ready for the weekend. I spent the morning cleaning the whole house. It felt so good when it was done!
Chance and I did a two mile walk to get some movement in on my rest day from running.
I headed to the grocery store to get all of our food for the weekend. I also picked up these beautiful flowers to make an arrangement for the kitchen. It’s crazy how much some fresh flowers add to a room!
I ate my leftovers while I cut up fruits and veggies and watched Criminal Minds.
I needed a pick me up in the afternoon so I made my normal breakfast smoothie. When Kyle was done with his final midterm for this term, he said he wanted junk food for dinner. I, of course, obliged to his request for McDonald’s! 😀
I ran again before work! I love getting in my workout before working. It wakes me up and ensures I get it done.
I know I eat all the same foods every day, but I love them and they work for me!
I ran out of my normal glasses so I had to drink my magnesium water in a wine glass. 😀
Today was another good day! We practiced our scripts with each other, and I felt pretty good about it. Hands on learning helps me so much more than anything else.
I made a little snack plate right after class and then we had salmon and green beans for dinner. I’ve been on a salmon kick lately.
I found this wifi info template online, and I think it looks so cute! I had an extra frame from our gallery wall, and it works perfect. I also picked up these flowers as well when I got the ones in the kitchen!
Kyle’s brother and fiance arrived tonight, and I am going to do a separate Fourth of July post later this week! I’m going to end this recap here. I truly hope you all are having a great Monday.
