Hello and good morning! Happy Thursday!
I feel like I have a million things in my head right now that I want to type onto this screen. I was, originally, going to talk about a killer workout I did this week. Then, I wanted to mention how my morning routine has changed and how it has been awesome. Then, I wanted to mention our dinner last night. And, thennnn, I wanted to talk about some awesome news that I received yesterday…
…I couldn’t get my thoughts under control but, then, I realized that, sometimes, the stars just align and things work themselves out. Today is Thursday. That means I can do a “Thursday Thoughts” post where I can just put all kinds of random stuff on paper on the internet. So, that’s what I’m doing. Welcome to the randomness.
**That killer workout I mentioned? Here it is:
…and this was me after I finished it:
…sweaty mess. My hair was so wet it felt like I just stepped out of the shower! Jumping rope for 30 seconds a million times is no joke!!! I totally loved it!
**I have been slowing my mornings down and I feel like my days have improved considerably.
I have joined in on a challenge presented by Best Kept Self. It is called the Start Right End Right 30-day Challenge and the idea behind it is that if you start your day right, you’ll end your day right…just like it says! Each week, there are new ideas and ways to slow down, make quality time for yourself, and prepare to step out with your best face forward. I have been waking up earlier, spending at least five minutes doing some type of reflection (even if it’s just running through thoughts in my head), enjoying a cup of hot lemon water, and prepping my breakfast and lunch for work. I really do feel a difference and realize that it’s amazing how much a calm morning can affect the rest of your day!
**I totally burnt dinner last night.
Tortilla pizzas were on the menu and I should have known better. I like to use the broiler to crisp up the tortillas because it’s quick. But…it’s always too quick. Every.single.time. I use my broiler, I end up burning something! I just don’t understand how food can go from ‘not ready yet’ to ‘call the fire department because the oven is on fire’ in five seconds. Can someone enlighten me? I watched our first two tortillas like a hawk…and then walked away to open a can…and then burnt the tortillas to a crisp. Of course, I blamed my husband. I mean, if he would have offered to open that can for me, they would have never burnt, right!?
**I got some awesome and exciting news yesterday!
A few months ago, I applied for a position that would allow me to do some work that I love on the side of my real job. I knew it was a long shot but, when I first heard about the opportunity, I figured I would just send in the requirements for the application. Why not!? I figured it was worth a shot! I submitted my materials, had a phone interview the next day, and, then, just waited. Due to the number it applicants, it took a very long time to go through everyone. We recently received an email telling us that everyone would be notified by the end of the month whether or not they were moving on the hiring process. And…I am happy to say that I was offered a final interview yesterday! I have to Skype with the director in charge of hiring tomorrow evening. I’m excited, happy, nervous, anxious…every feeling I could feel! If you guys could just say a prayer for me and cross your fingers that everything goes well, I would appreciate it! I feel like now that I’ve made it this far, there’s no stopping me! Hopefully!
Okay, friends! There’s my brain dump! There are soooo many more things that I could talk about but, at the risk of losing you all, I’ll stop. Have a beautiful day!
Oh! Did any of you see the Perseid meteor shower last night? It was awesome!
