My Everyday Life: February 17-21

Here's what this past week looked like:

It wasn't the most exciting week and was a bit depressing, since we got two big storms again, one on Monday and another on Thursday.

On Monday, I left work around noon because the snow was coming down heavily and I had enough work to do from home anyway. I enjoyed having the Olympics on in the background and being able to brew some coffee in the early afternoon.

I had to shovel everything by myself, so I could get my car out of the driveway and we could drive to a car appointment for Craig. It was quite the workout, but I am really glad we have this huge shovel.

I tried to catch up on some of my coursera coursework. This week's topic was plant-based diets, which this vegetarian totally geeked out about! I still some video lectures to get through, but I love what I learned so far.

Shiva also enjoyed "class" with me. :)

Two weeks from now, I have my biggest program at work for the year and it's been quite stressful dealing with all of the last minute details to organize it. My office at work has been a mess, but I managed to get it clean and papers filed away before leaving for the weekend.

I ate somewhat healthy this week. I refused free cookies at work and tried to avoid sugar as much as possible.

I enjoyed a big salad from the work salad bar while catching up with a former colleague and giving her some health advice.

After an allergy clinical trial appointment, I headed to Sendik's to stock up on produce and purchased some veggie rolls for dinner. I had been craving sushi for weeks, so this really satisfied my craving.

I'm back to eating muesli for breakfast, which I prep overnight like people make overnight oats. I just soak no sugar added Alpen Muesli in almond milk and lemon juice overnight and then add greek yogurt, fresh fruit, honey and chia seeds in the morning.

That was my week! 


  1. I've been eating a breakfast of steel cut oats cooked with currants and dried cranberries and added walnuts and blueberries. Can't wait 'til morning now!

  2. Glad I'm not the only one who looks forward to breakfast! Looking forward to seeing you on Wednesday!
