I feel like this
I’m writing this Wednesday night and just feel good about the day — don’t you love when that happens?
My fat kid eating ceased today and I feel great about that. I’ve had much more balanced meals and no crazy snacking and not only does my body feel good, but mentally I feel much more at ease.
Tonight after work I had preplanned to head to Denver’s alternative to Trader Joe’s:
This place is pretty freakin’ awesome. Aisles of bins of food from chocolates to oats to seeds to coffee beans. Love that. They also had a ton of brands that I had never heard of including my choice of dinner which was frozen veggie enchiladas by Cedar Lane (280 cals, 18 g protein) and it was tasty I liked that Sunflower Market had a combo of mainstream options like Kashi, PB&Co (they had White Chocolate Wonderful), but also stocked more unique healthy options like Trader Joe’s. The only downside is that I thought it was pricey — at least pricier than TJ’s.
I managed to get some nice ab work and resistance training while watching one of my favorite shows:
How hot was the first routine with Ryan? She’s one of my faves
And to top things off, I had a great day at work. don’t talk about my professional life that much and that is purposeful. However, speaking in generalities, today include some of the things I love about my career:
- Listening to powerful executives give inspirational speeches that truly motivate me
- “Fighting fires” — I love the thrill and adrenaline rush of dealing with a ‘hot’ issue that needs to be dealt with on the fly
- Presenting / public speaking — when I’m describing something technical it’s one of the few times I feel completely at ease, empowered, and confident. I love it!
- Conversing with coworkers. This may sound silly but most of my team resides in Denver so I’m awfully isolated in Cali and it gets lonely. It’s so great to have the energy around me!
Those are just a few, but it made it a good day and I’ll take one where I can get one!
What are you loving about work lately?
