I found myself waking up multiple times during the night wondering the outcome of the election so I did not sleep well. I am usually not into politics at all, but for some reason, I am feeling extra anxious for this one. I feel like there has been so much hate and negative feelings surrounding this election, and I hate that! I am trying to just pray and hold on to my faith, but I’m also here to say that it’s normal to be anxious and stressed sometimes.
I took my morning nice and slow with a few cups of coffee. It was so peaceful in my neighborhood this morning, and that did my heart good.
I worked from home again today, and a leftover chocolate chip cookie from last night was my breakfast of choice. I try to stay at my desk most of the time if I am doing anything work related to help separate my work life from home life, and it has worked pretty well the last few days!
I didn’t take pictures of all my snacks, but I definitely ate more than a beef stick during the day. I never want it to come across like I don’t eat very often because believe me, I DO! I have gotten out of the habit of drinking my greens AGAIN so I made sure to drink them again today. Since I didn’t sleep well last night, Kyle and Chance didn’t sleep well so Chance got in a good nap while I worked.
Here are some podcast episodes I have listened to over the last few days.
- Crime Junkie Podcast- MURDERED: Tamika Huston
- Morbid Podcast- Episode 183
- ILYSM Podcast- The Sorority Nutritionist
After I was done working for the day, I cleaned up the kitchen and folded a load of laundry.
Then I made my lunch because I am going to the office tomorrow. I packed a salad, verb bar, beef stick, blueberries, veggies, cheese and turkey slices, and Siete chips. I don’t usually eat breakfast before going to work so I’ll eat some of this in the morning and the rest throughout my work day. Like I’ve said, I am much more of a snacker than a big mealer so this works really well for me! I linked my baggies here and my lunch bag here.
I’m getting my monthly break out right now so I relaxed for a few minutes with this mask on. It is truly a miracle worker for me and is super gentle. I like to mix it with apple cider vinegar but water works well too! It’s almost time for me to order another tub.
Kyle and I had allllllll the Mexican food for dinner and watched How I Met Your Mother. I have my running and work clothes set out for tomorrow and my work bag packed so I don’t have to worry about anything in the morning. I’ve been working home since last Friday! I hope I remember how to act in an office 😀
