Beautiful day and what a way to start it. I woke up at 4:45. I have no idea why. Thankfully, I was able to fall back asleep til about 8. At which point, I forced myself out of bed and out the door. I have no coffee. True story. Always motivates me to greet the day.
I walked to a local coffee shop before heading to a market. There are about three coffee shops within a six block radius which is convenient. However, one is super corporate. The other does not offer coffee creamer which is a huge no-no in my world. I do not like drinking milk in my coffee. I prefer creamer. I stopped by one Sunday morning when my toilet was on the fritz and I was staying at Sara's house. Sara is a generous hostess and normally has coffee creamer in her home. That week while I was at her home, she was on a dairy free diet. As you can see, I was a little distracted and my routine was disrupted. I did not take kindly to being told there is a market down the street that sells creamer. I wanted to kick the guy in the shins. Especially after I spent $5.50 on Americano. I was irritated. The other coffee shop is okay. I like the coffee and the vibe is okay. Don't think it is a home for me though. There is another shop east of where I live that I prefer.
At any rate, after getting coffee I headed to the market. I wanted to restock my supply of coffee, tortillas, tomatoes--essentials in my livelihood. I have been more able to make my own lunch and dinner recently. Mostly due to the fact that I am too lazy to try to find dinner after work. My schedule prohibits me from eating at normal times. I tried to yesterday while working. Meaning, I was hungry around 5 and tried to order food. Of course, it didn't work out and I was irritated that I had forgotten to pack a protein bar in my bag. At least that is something to offset the hunger. I picked up bars to accompany me to work the next few days.
Barre class continues to inspire and motivate me. And kick my ass! Seriously! I think I should be better at it and then I attend Shannon's class and I am dying. Today, I was fine thru the arms and plank sequence. Then we started the thighs and I was shaking. My mind is screaming at me and I don't want to give up in the class but wow!...Was it painful!
Showered, eating lunch, mentally preparing for the day. Week, even. I need to arrange a chiropractor session, massage, some Barre classes, yoga teaching amongst other things. There is much to do and I tend to fill up my days easily. I would love to do a silver coin sort of day, haha.
Or, I was talking to Shari talking about trips. I head to Phoenix in ten days and then there is New Orleans at the end of September. Is there a way to head to Santa Fe for a few days? Maybe spend some time at Ojo. Definitely see friends and drink silver coins. I am so going to make it happen. I can and will!
I am inspired, knowing, that I am capable of putting my mind to anything. Travel always rules
