Saturday morning at last! It’s funny when you work more you appreciate the days you have to rest so much more.lol. Today the weatherman has zero ideas what the forecast will do because it has changed 100 times since the start of the week, the only real thing is it will be very cold here in Kentucky! Snow is a fair guess because this is the season for it here but heavy cold rains and messy roads will be all around. So I am thankful this morning that I get to rest and relax and only get out to run some short and sweet errands for the holidays. I wish you all rest and blessing this fine weekend and with that let’s get it started!
This week I worked a full week and my body held up great, plus I was able to get more comfortable with my new job and workmates. The atmosphere isn’t perfect at work but I’m so blessed to have this chance and the workout is fantastic! The holidays are busy and crazy but I find that people are in great spirits and bringing their smiles to the party so that makes my job a lot easier! I’m making dumb mistakes just like anyone doing something new but I’ve learned so much about my ability to push my body and what it will and won’t respond to. My life has taken such a turn for the better and I think this year I will do a year in review because it has been one of the most impactful years I have been in this circle!
All week I have been doing one meal a day and now that it’s the weekend I’ll probably have 2 meals to up my calorie intake for the week. The baked chicken I meal prepped this week was a lifesaver so I will be looking for another dish to get me through a tough and busy week starting Monday! The lady of the house surprised me with plain wings from a local pizza joint on Thursday which broke up the chicken only meals this week, she’s so nice and supportive! This week I’m thinking of a casserole of some sort with plenty of meat but maybe having a mix of cauliflower mash to the mix! I was thinking a chili may be a great idea with the cold front moving in as well. I haven’t been counting calories or even tracking macros I’ve mostly just been listening to my body and eating based on my work schedule and everything. Boy have I kept my body full of water! I’m working on at least a gallon a day with all the refills of ice and water I get during my work shift and then I have water with my meals so I’m setting my body afloat.lol. My energy levels have been great and I’ve gotten some great sleep this past week. The only thing I think I need to improve on is leaving my work thoughts at work and not thinking about work when I get home, that a big thing for me because what good is it to think too much about it when your not there? Hell, you might as well go back to work, since your minds there thinking stuff over so much.
Today I’m working on the podcast and spending the rest of the day soaking my feet and relaxing my body. I may go ahead and get a little cardio in because my stamina could always be better especially during this crazy holiday stretch. I’m thinking I’ll catch up on some social media, check on my homies and enjoy the weekend the best I can! I have a weigh-in next week so I will certainly be posting about my results but I feel really great yall and I truly appreciate you for reading this, have a fabulous weekend!
