Snowed In

Monday was spent….

looking out my window at this

eating things like this

and hanging out with cool people like this

I wished my Sunday hadn’t been so lazy. It made for a very difficult day stuck inside. I would have happily laid around on the couch and watched a movie, but I did that the day before and a girl can only do so much laying around.  Instead, I was left wishing I could be out and about shopping and drinking coffee. Oh well. I’m not going to complain about a work-free Monday.

Today was back to work. Sighhhh. Surprisingly, it was a very calm day. Not what you expect when you miss a day at a physician’s office. People don’t stop getting sick just because of snow. None the less, very calm.

I am thankful for my day today. Smooth as butta.

What are you thankful for today?

Half Days!!

Today was my half day yeah, yeah, yeah! Can you tell how happy I am?

Some times I spend my half days being very lazy and others very productive. Very rarely do I do a mix or both. In my mind, I either want to spend my extra 4 hours doing absolutely nothing – that way, I really feel like I’m getting a break or I want to spend it getting everything done that I’ve been putting off.

Today, was a productive Wednesday. I had lots of errands to run and job searching to do. I munched on this while out and about

Nom, nom nom!

(Food brings me so much joy it’s pathetic! I’m smiling as I think about how delicious that snack is. Ha!)

On the job front – It’s going well. Earlier in the week, I accepted a position as Assistant Instructor at a cooking school here in Nashville. It’s only 5-15 hours a week but it’s awesome experience.

Me = loves to cook

Me also = self taught cook.

Thus, getting to work under a chef every week is going to be a huge learning experience and, it may even open up some more doors. So, I’m pumped!

Obviously, I need more full time employment on top of this position. I don’t have my thoughts totally together yet, so I don’t want to share too many details about my plans because honestly, they could change tomorrow.

Still no doubts in my mind about quitting my job and going after my dreams!

What are you dreams? I guess I haven’t really shared with you what exactly mine are. I will, I promise!

So what else is new?

Earlier, I mentioned having one last new announcement.

Here it goes,

the big news…

I know,

you can’t hardly wait…

Today, I put my two weeks notice in. It feels good!

Working as a Nationally Certified Medical Assistant in the western medicine field has been eye opening to say the least. This experience has only further pursuaded my viewpoint on the importance of taking care of our bodies through nutrition and exercise.

Life lesson learned: Stay active. Eat wholesome food. It will make the biggest difference in your life and happiness. Trust me, you don’t want to be on a long list of meds. Not fun.

Life lesson applied: 25 minutes in the sauna after work (goodbye toxins!) and for dinner, a giant salad with a bowl of tomato, arugula soup topped with goat’s cheese. Yummy, yummy goat’s cheese.

Sorry, no soup photos.

That’s all for now folks. More on my future plans later. Goodnight!
