Day Five Review:
Sometimes working at home is the worst because it is hard to set boundaries between your work life and everything else.
I stopped what I was doing and made the Kale smoothie. To be honest, it was a little bitter for me. So, I added a bit more stevia and drank it with a straw. This made a HUGE difference.
The workout wasn’t too difficult today and I finished it in about 10 minutes. Later in the afternoon I really enjoyed the salad. It was so easy and felt like I was cheating (but Parker swears it is ok!)
After working till about 2pm, I had to run to a prayer meeting across town. I went to the prayer meeting and then went to a fashion showroom with Gracie to work on a new denim line called FiveUnits that is coming the the USA. We ended up working on the line much longer than we expected.
After the showroom we headed to worship open night hosted by Liberty Church. Worship open night is one of my favorite nights because you get to hang out with people from different communities and it is much more casual than Sunday.
After open night, Parker and I stopped at a Deli to get a salad. I was literally starving because I didn’t eat anything since 2pm. Eating so many times a day is actually really difficult due to meetings and my schedule. Parker said if we prep meals in advance in tupperware it will really help.
However, let me know if you like the stuffed chicken breasts. It is one of my favorites!
DAY FIVE COMPLETE! (with minimal complaining…. not until trying to go out to dinner)
