My Everyday Life [Week 3]

I tried this dairy free yogurt and it was ok. I probably won't buy it again as I prefer unsweetened yogurt with fresh fruit added in now. 
If you're in a book club, I recommend listening to this podcast. It gave me some good ideas for ours!

I took a couple of hours off of work to study for my test. My buddy Shiva would not leave me alone! Also, I look tired here and it's because I didn't know it then, but I was coming down with a flu-like virus. 
I think this is where I left off before I got sick. I need to catch up as I miss my daily practice. 
I started to feel sick on Wednesday afternoon, had a day off of work to study on Thursday, and then I had to take a test on Friday. I didn't know if I could pass it while I was sick, but I did and even earned an 80-89%. I know that the weeks of dedicated studying really paid off.
We finished watching Chernobyl and it was so good. I learned so much. Craig already knew a lot about the topic. 
Shiva has been my little cat nurse while I've had this virus. He has slept with me almost every night and follows me around the house. I have appreciated it so much. 
Pema continues to be independent and silly. On Sunday, he decided to randomly sit on our humidifier. It was blowing out cold air and he normally prefers the warm air of the heat vent instead.
Once I finished passing that insurance designation test for work, I moved onto studying the ACE Behavior Change program so I can renew my personal training license. It's a fascinating course so far! There is so much psychology that goes into it.
Other things going on this past week: I really got into the book "Know My Name" by Chanel Miller and I'm almost done. It's so good that I am slowly reading it and processing her experience.

We got a bunch of snow and while it's pretty, I am already ready for spring.

And to be honest, it was a pretty crazy week so I understand why I got sick. Besides my test, I was contemplating a change at work and decided not to go forward with it.
