Manic Monday

well not exactly a manic of a Monday but I decided to play on my last post “Sunday Funday”
If you have no idea what I’m referencing you live in a box and need to click on this link πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜‰

now you are more versed in the wonderful era we call the ’80’s

So today I woke up with residual headache from yesterday. I woke up and did my new morning routine and felt better.
Today, in an attempt to make my protein shake better I added my sealicious omega fish oil to my shake. It is flavored with lime (only one I found) and did find it masked the taste a bit. I think the chunkiness is coming from the coconut oil. It is solid at room temperature and so when I put my almond milk from the fridge into the blender the coconut oil just stays solid. It’s unappetizing having chunks and the top of your protein shake but I’m determined to make it better.Β  Ill try and warm up the oil and use room temperature almond milk.

I started work at 12 today so I had time to make lunch and dinner. With last nights fail and rice casserole I was determined to make this batch work.
Lucky for me I succeeded.
Ill post the ricipie here:Click me πŸ™‚
It was quite good.

I packed zucchini sticks and almonds for my snacks and the rice dish for lunch and dinner.
I was finding myself really hungry soon after eating lunch and dinner. I have to make sure to pack some more snacks. When I got home I had steamed 3 carrots (cut in sticks) to eat. It was about 8 and was not planning on eating this late but I had to. As Im writing this I’m still really hungry. I’ll find a good balance eventually.

Today was a good day Overall. Although Ive had a migraine, failed attempt at rice casserole and always hungry I’m optimistic. I know this will go away and I will be so much better. I am One lucky gal and I’m so thankful for the love and support from my family and friends. My loving Mother reads all my posts and emails me about them as soon as she reads them. It makes me happy that she takes the time to read what I write and get caught up with what I’m doing. I’m blessed to have her as my Mom.
My mom was also my inspiration to knit. She knits a lot and is very good. Last mothers day I taught myself how to knit. As a mothers day surprise I knitted her a set of dish clothes for her kitchen. Since then Ive found joy in knitting. I have not done it in a while so today I picked up my knitting needles and am starting to make a coffee cozy. It helps me relax so this is what I did for myself today.

How have you taken time for yourself recently?
