In the past two months that I have been blogging, the though of quitting has crossed my mind. I’m not going to lie, it is a lot harder than it looks. My job is extremely demanding at times and leaves me to either post a quick, meaningless post, or not post at all. All I think about is writing on here all day long and it makes me sad to not be able to execute all of my ideas on my blog.
This week at work in particular has been a rough one. This morning, I read Julie’s post. I have to say that ever since starting this blog, I have had small thoughts of changing careers. I am interested in social media, jobs in health, fitness, writing, etc. I feel like a whole new door opened up for me and I don’t know exactly where this might take me, but I do know that quitting is not going to get me anywhere! When I really enjoy something, I can’t just give up due to uncontrollable circumstances. I’ll say that this new passion has definitely caused me to dream of doing what Julie has taken a chance at. Obviously, it is way to early for that, but that was just the right inspiration that I needed this week.
Shhh..don’t tell anyone, but I read Julie’s post while sitting in traffic this morning and sipping on this:
I found an insulated cup for my smoothies so I can enjoy them on my morning drive, instead of woofing them down right after the gym before getting in the shower. This particular smoothie included a mixture of SunWarrior, spinach, blackberries, frozen bananas, and almond milk.
Since I missed a day, I’ll also share this concoction from last night’s dinner.
See how sprinkles make everything look pretty?
I mixed in the blender:
- 1 1/2 scoops SunWarrior vanilla protein powder
- 1 cup almond milk
- 1/2 frozen banana
- a few ice cubes
- pinch xanath to thicken
In the bowl I chopped up some strawberries (clearly unseen as they are sunk to the bottom of the bowl) and added whip, sprinkles, and some almond butter.
A quick note that I want to cover is that I know I am missing the fashion element on this blog. I know that my intentions were to cover a healthy lifestyle including fitness and food. I also wanted to incorporate fashion because it is also a passion of mine. I have clearly been lacking because of time, but I do have some ideas floating around. On Tuesday, after having a long, stressful, non-blogging day at work, I asked Joe to take a picture of me. You’ll have to excuse his poor photography skills.
I was excited about some new purchases and intend to eventually have a seperate fashion experience on here!
- Maroon/cream striped top: J. Crew
- Salmon pants: Zara
- Nude Sandals: Charles David
- Scarf: Limited (from like 5 years ago?)
- Nude Belt: J Crew
- Sunburn: Beach on Sunday
…and my pudgy looking face: the heat? Ew, haha….
I hope you can all hang on for this ride with me because I have so many ideas! Now, I am off to finish some things at work and meet Claire for dinner because she is in town for the week! Yay!
