Usually these blogs are Things I Love Thursday, but I’m full of love this Wednesday so I used my wordsmith skills to change it up a bit. I’ve been in an amazing mood ever since I started going back to the gym regularly. I’ve accepted the fact that I need my workouts or else I’m a wench to everyone around me. So, I’m happy and so is everyone else! On a completely unrelated note, my students have been insanely great lately and everyone is turning their homework in on time. See? All is in harmony right now!
Besides going to my beloved gym, I’ve recently fallen in love with Apple Cider Vinegar. A few months ago, when I first moved into my new home things got…well…stuck. Yes, my friends, I’m doing some real talk right about now. Unfortunately, I inherited the world’s worst digestive system where the smallest change in schedule, stress level, or diet becomes a massive chaotic mess. You know what happens when you have too much fiber and not enough water? Think about it. After some failed Lemon Water attempts at alkalizing my system, I went with Bragg ACV and drink it every night with some water. I usually do two tablespoons of ACV in about 1 1/2 c. of water and overnight the magic works. How’s that for real talk? The same thing happened when I quit smoking about a year ago and I just ignored the problem instead of following my usual philosophy of fixing health with food. Now, I’m all about going with my gut…no pun intended…
What else do I love right about now? INFINITY SCARVES! It’s been really cold down by the shore where Keith and I live now, so I’ve been wrapping myself up each morning. I love how chunky, fun, and colorful they are since I wear A LOT of black. I think that’s really all that needs to be said about that.
Since I believe in a good diet, I was honestly surprised that I had never owned a salad spinner of my own. This bad boy came from Bed Bath and Beyond and was only $10.00. It reminds me of starting a lawn mower (because I do THAT all the time) and it makes my romaine stay nice and crispy. They can be as expensive as almost $80.00, but for that type of cash it’d have to grow the lettuce for me. Either way, my greens stay nice and crisp while I wait for lunchtime to arrive.
Finally? I’m loving OTHER PEOPLE’S KIDS. I don’t want any of my own right now, but I am enjoying seeing my bestie’s pics of her new baby boy. He’s adorable and I’m super excited to get to know him. I also love other people’s kids because they go home when they get cranky/hyper/sticky/fresh. Just keeping it real!
