You know how when you try really hard to be better in one area of your life, it seems to sort of trickle into other areas of you life as well? That's kind of what this is. Caleb and I have tried (other than those addicting local donuts) to be really healthy and more conscious about how we treat our bodies day in and day out.
Last week I had a record number of steps and it felt amazing. It made me want to beat my best, every day. I did take Sunday-Tuesday off this week, and last night we went out on a run. I was so worried my run would suck, because this week at work has been INSANE. Okay, insane would be an understatement. I've never been this busy there! I'm covering for two co workers so I'm basically doing triple the work, and its crazy. Regardless, I felt pretty defeated by the time I got home, but we laced up and hit the pavement anyway.
What's crazy is I had one of my best runs ever. We did almost 4.5 miles! By the time we stopped, I realized I could've kept going, but I was starving.
Oh yeah, back to the point of this post. So, I've realized that when I take more steps, I become more motivated, which in turn makes me want to continue eating better, which saves SO MUCH MONEY.
Caleb and I also discovered Krogers best kept secret. If you go to the fresh seafood section, you can buy fresh seafood for an insanely cheap price, they'll season it, throw it in a ready to bake foil bag, and voila! You have hot dinner 30 minutes later. It's basically the best thing we've ever discovered. Tuesday we had Rosemary Garlic Salmon, last night was Chipotle Lime Cod. Can you say DELICIOUS?!
Anyway, hope everyone is having a great week! Other than it being crazy at work, I can't complain! I'm thankful for a night at home tonight with no plans. Maybe I'll find myself finally picking up that book I've been meaning to read! Have a fun day, friends!
