Currently…

Currently I’m finishing up my breakfasta nice warm bowl of steel cut oats with coconut cashew and maple sunflower butters and a big cup-of-joe.

Steel Cut Oats Coconut Cashew Maple Sunflower Butter Coffee

I’m thinking it’s going to be a multiple big cup-of-joe kind of day. I just picked up my phone to take a sip of coffee.. yea.

I’m thinking I’m really glad I went to the gym this morning, even having not slept well, because I already feel like I’m reaping the rewards. And I know that I wouldn’t have wanted to move later in the day!

Workout

Currently I’m looking into when and where I can get my CPR/AED certification so I can take my CPT exam. Exciting. Nerve-wracking. Stress-inducing. Maybe part of the reason I’m not sleeping as well?

I’m also looking into all of the fun perks of my new job at Athleta. I’m only 2 shifts in right now, but I’m really liking it. [And I’m not just saying that because they might be reading!] Also, if you’re in the bay area, follow my store on Twitter.. they’re always posting about events and great in-store deals!

Currently I’m thinking about the anniversary trip. Man, it was fun. And surprisingly enough, we didn’t really overdo it this time. Maybe because wine country is in our backyard now and we can always go back for more!

Sparkling Wine Vintners Inn

I’m also thinking about how glad I am to have done my detox before retox week before the trip. This week is definitely about getting back to normal eats again, but in a different way. I mentioned last week that my body was appreciating the lack of grains and starchy vegetables, though by the end of the week, I’ll admit I was feeling tired. Maybe my body didn’t appreciate such a change.

I’m thinking that I’ve had a hell of a time really trying to figure out how to eat lately. That nice warm bowl of oats this morning? I was staying away from that last week, but maybe it’s something my body does want. Am I over-thinking? Yea, probably. It seems like every time I think I have it figured out, things change. I’m really just wanting someone to tell me how to eat. It shouldn’t be this hard, right?

Currently I’m thinking about how ridiculous it is that Northern California apartments don’t have air conditioning. I understand that it doesn’t get into the upper 80s/low 90s that often, but that’s just silly business. We’ve had our fans running constantly.

And I’m thinking about all of the fires in Southern California and hoping that everyone is staying safe.

Currently I’m counting the days till our trip home. I can’t wait to get my hands on this little nugget!

  1. Seriously can’t we just eat? If only it were that easy. I know exactly what you mean about trying to figure out what works best for me. Sometimes my body craves carbs and I’m almost mad about it because it causes me mental discomfort. Then when I don’t eat enough carbs I get tired, I have bad workouts, I sacrifice the physical comfort in favor of being mentally comfortable. Gotta break that association in the first place, the one that causes mental discomfort but it’s tough. You got this though. Every day brings new opportunities to learn and new information. Plus it’s great that you proved to yourself that just because you were in wine country on a getaway doesn’t mean you had to go overboard. You proved to yourself that you have control.

    • I love my carbs, I’m just trying to figure out which carbs my body loves too! Also, I think I just proved to myself that I can get plenty tipsy from 2 wineries a day.. they’re so nice about extra pours 😉

  2. Figuring out what to eat can definitely be a challenge. I can’t even tell you how many times I’ve wished that I could just ask my body what the heck it wanted, but alas… the only thing we can do is experiment and sees hat works and what doesn’t. The only problem with this is that sometimes our fears and anxieties get in the way of what really IS good for us. I used to be really afraid of carbs, but I can definitely tell you that I feel SO much better when they make up a big part of my diet.

    • Seriously, I wish it was easier too. The trial and error is so frustrating sometimes. I know my body likes carbs, just trying to figure out which ones! I know which carbs my taste buds like haha 🙂
