Well, actually, I will start with breakfast.
Remember that Quaker pancake mix I picked up the other day?
I broke it out today.
I hate syrup, so it's basically butter and peanut butter for me.
Yes, that's a 50% off sticker on there. You guys know I love a bargain.
I realized after I snapped that first pic that my eyes were bigger than my stomach, so I downgraded to one pancake.
So, after breakfast, things went downhill. We ordered pizza last night and there was half of it left this morning. Let's just say that it was all gone by 1pm. Then, I finished off two snack bars, a can of green beans, two persian cucumbers, and... I think that's it... Sigh... Oh, E.D., why do you hate me?... Telling you guys all about that is my way of being accountable. boo.
However, things looked up after Ryan came home. I got my new Lunarfly Nikes in the mail today. Oh, be still my beating heart.
Immediately, I fell in love. I've never had running shoes this cute. EVER! I got a chance to work on this week's "moral," Spend Out. The first thing I thought when I saw these shoes was: I don't want to get them dirty on our running path!
Then, I got my Health magazine in the mail. Again, I was like, "Oh, I don't want to read that yet." I always want to "save" it, since I won't get another mag for a whole month.
THEN, I realized I was on my last "running" bandaid and wanted to save it.
I realized... WHAT AM I SAVING FOR?!?
So, I reminded myself that I need to SPEND OUT. Quit saving everything for later. Enjoy the moment!
I opened up my mag.
Put on my running bandaid (it's covering a blister).
And, I tied up my laces and went out for a run with my hubby! He pushed me SO hard, too.
I felt so bad after my binge today, but my run completely turned that frown upside down. :D
For dinner, I made chicken and rice with brussels sprouts.
After dinner, JGago came over for some after-dinner coffee.
I mixed a bit of this with some instant decaf. Yum!
See? Everyday can be a success. You just have to take the time to something good for YOURSELF, and remember to spend out your goodness. :)
Do you put off things that make you happy so you don't "use them up"?
What are some of the little joys in your life?
What do you do to turn around a bad day?
Have a great night/day everyone!
