Today was such a great day!
I slept late then, made myself a delicious egg casserole for breakfast, this has been a staple in my life the last few weeks. I also had a cup of coffee with a splash of almond milk and splenda, I’m out of sugar.
I also made myself a promise that I would not turn on the tv, and I stuck to it! Usually I turn it on for noise and then get sucked in sitting on my butt. Instead of tv noise, I turned on Pandora Christmas music and got my clean on.
Our house really needed a good cleaning. I have to confess that some stuff isn’t even unpacked! We moved two months ago! I cleaned the bedroom, and both bathrooms and simultaneously did a ton of laundry, wash, dry, folded AND put away. That’s a big deal around here, I’m totally guilty of leaving clean clothes in a basket for a few days….weeks….forever.
All that before lunch! Midway through the day, I stopped cleaning to sweat it out.
My bootie was a little sore from doing the extreme shed and shred yesterday so I thought the yoga meltdown was a good choice. I did level one and two, which was actually wonderful. I was surprised to find out that I had actually never tried the level two. It was fun to do something new! I didn’t get nearly as sweaty as I do when doing the shed and shred, but I really enjoy this DVD, it yoga and heart pumping in one. A two-fer!
After a shower, I made a quick pizza on flatout wrap with turkey sausage and mushrooms, with a side of cauliflower. Then I got back to cleaning the house, I unpacked and sorted a box of bathroom junk…talk about time consuming. I also scrubbed the whole kitchen, even did alllllll the dishes. Which was a lot because our dishwasher is broken and has been since we moved in..yuck.
I love it.
I say mostly because I quadrupled the recipe to make four servings, dinner for Blake and I, plus leftovers for lunch. I accidentally put a ton of red pepper flakes…so it was spicy orange chicken I also didn’t exactly measure anything, but I’m getting pretty good at eyeballing the right amounts. I had mine with a brown rice medley and steamed veggies. It was so pretty, I should have thought to take a photo.
We also enjoyed a hot cocoa with cool whip. Yummy.
Then I got busy making a Christmas wreath for my door.
Blake’s grandma sent me home with a bunch of junk that I really don’t need but I used some of it to piece together this wreath. I love it! I’m going to have to post pictures of my holiday decor once I finish putting it out! Number one reason why I really needed to clean the house.
I’m also hoping to find my camera battery soon so I can use a real camera instead of my phone.
I hope you also had a really great, and healthy day!
