Hey Friends! How’s it goin?
It feels like an age since I sat down for some uninterrupted blogging time. The last 2 or 3 weeks have probably been the busiest of my life and there was barely any time left over for blogging. Case in point: It’s Saturday and I’m doing a Friday Five post 😳
Anyway, if you read my thinking/ranting out loud post from late last month, this is gonna be an update on that. So here goes:
5 Things I’ve Accomplished Recently
1. I’m no longer homeless
I lived on a friend’s couch for more than a week in between moving out of my old place and finding a new place to live. I had a lot of fun living there cuz her house is board game central (any Dominion players out there?) but I’m pretty happy that I was able to move out before school started.
My room is still a giant mess, but the kitchen is in order! It isn’t anywhere near magazine worthy, but I can already tell it’s gonna serve me well 😀
2. I’m cooking and eating well again
I mentioned in August that my eating habits had become horrendous and unfortunately that didn’t change until recently. I prepped the eff outta my meals on Monday and I’ve been eating like a (healthy) queen ever since.
Get a load of this pizza I made on a whim on Wednesday. Not bad for a first attempt, if I do say so myself. And yep, I put ketchup and mustard on my pizza- it’s a Trini thing.
3. I got a new laptop
Do you hear the angels singing?!? I finally bit the bullet and got a new laptop during the last week of August. It’s so freeing to be able to use the computer without fear of the blue screen of death!
4. I finally made it to the Farmers’ Market
This has been a goal of mine for about two years and I think it’s safe to say I’ve procrastinated enough 😳
I didn’t end up buying a whole lot but here are a couple of my favourites from my mini-haul:
5. I’m back in the gym
I’d been skipping the gym due to moving days and apartment viewings but I was extra frustrated about my homelessness one day and I knew an intense workout was exactly what I needed. So I made time for one and I’m so glad I did. I actually found a place the next morning!
My new place is about 2 blocks from the gym so I made it 4 out of 5 mornings this week as well.
Side note: I’m definitely gonna stick to morning workouts cuz they’re da bomb. I don’t have to wait on machines, dodge sweaty bodies or deal with people hovering while I finish my sets. Sounds like workout bliss to me 😉
