I Heart Wednesdays!

Dropping down to only working 4 days a week was one of the best decisions I've ever made. I slept this morning until I woke up naturally, not jolted out of deep slumber by the annoying ring of an alarm clock. A cup of chai later and I almost feel human again!

I was absolutely exhausted yesterday. I felt like I could lay down and sleep for hours at any given moment. I did come home and eat a healthy dinner (grilled chicken and homemade greek salad) and then went for a 50 minute walk around the 'hood. Running with Lisa and doing the Mother's Day run has shown me a whole new side of the area I live in. Walked past the park where there were a lot of guys playing soccer. A lovely view. =)

It's rainy and cool here today (6C) so I think I'll spend the morning tidying. My recycling cupboard is going to explode soon (especially since I started saving my plastics to recycle at my mom's) and I didn't get around to vacuuming on the weekend, so I should probably do that, too. I have a massage at 1 and then the AHT is coming at 4:30 to give Kitty her treatment at home.

I should also make a plan with my sister in law for the weekend. We're going to Sherwood Park to a yoga workshop with my yoga teacher, Kate Potter. I'm also trying to get together with some friends I went to university with that I haven't seen for about 7 years. We're heading back to Cowtown on Sunday night and on Tuesday we're learning how to play golf!

Calorie King is going well, so far. I really like the graphs that show my progress through the day. What have I noticed so far? I really like carbs (shocking, I know) and I don't get enough protein. That one was a surprise. So today I'm breaking out the cottage cheese for snack time.

I leave you with the words of Mahatma Gandhi: Be the change you want to see in this world.
