BLE Day 56

Good morning Day 56!!

I’m rather amazed that I’ve kept up with this for 56 whole days!  I’m not sure if I’ve ever successfully managed to change such a big habit like this and stick to it for 56 days before.  I definitely know I’m not looking back because this is working, I feel fabulous, and my food has never been more enjoyable!

Today I failed to take any planner pictures so we will just jump right into my breakfast. The rice was leftover from my husband’s late supper last night and I quickly swiped out 4oz so I could eat it for breakfast.  Two fried eggs (with Pam) and grapes rounded out a great “savory” meal, a change of pace from the rest of this week!

I want you to notice the super cute dish that the grapes are in.  Also, please ignore the paper plate that my breakfast is on.  I had done NO dishes and there was not even one plate in the cupboard!! (They are done now, but at the time of breakfast, that was the reality!)

These are The Pioneer Woman little measuring bowls.  I fell in love with them and bought all three sets at Walmart after gazing at them on several different trips and longing to own them.  They were so cute and special that I put them in the China Hutch and then NEVER USED THEM.

Today I decided that I was not going to wait to live my life, so I removed all the paper protectors between each bowl and found a place in my main cupboard to store them.

I threw those paper dividers right into my garbage can, after waffling a bit about feeling like I should keep them “in case”.  I don’t want to live my life for the “in case” either, so into the trash they went.  I plan to USE these adorable little bowls, that bring me joy every time I look at them, every day as much as I possibly can.

Why leave them in the “special” hutch, for a “special” occasion??  LIVE, ENJOY, EMBRACE!!  That is my approach to so many things now because life is happening and I want to be present and LIVE it!!

My grapes were SO CUTE in that bowl!!

After doing some chores at home, I packed my lunch and headed back to my classroom to do some work.  My lunch was ready for me and I love that I’m practicing with my Planet Box and figuring out how my food is going to fit into it.  I cut my apples at home and then put them into a ziplock sandwich bag.  Before sealing the bag completely shut, I sucked as much air out of it as I possibly could to sort of vacuum pack the apples.  They stayed nice and fresh looking which made me happy!

Our little school has a greenhouse.  It is flourishing right now and I was able to bring home a nice zucchini and a small cucumber!

This evening a friend invited me to go on a small hike and take a dip in the lake.  I grabbed 2 packs of mixed nuts, a cheese stick, some garden snap peas that I pulled out of the shells, and some carrot sticks and ate them in the car while we drove to the lake.  We ended up having a girls’ night with four of us and we enjoyed the evening, the sunset, and the friendship!

The sun was sinking over the hills as we made our way to the little swimming hole.  I didn’t swim this time, but definitely want to go back when it’s a little earlier in the day.  I could have stayed there for hours, but the mosquitos came in force as dusk so we headed back to the car.

It was a beautiful day, my lines were almost perfectly bright, and I got a lot done!  I’ll see you all tomorrow!
