This move ... I think it's really starting to hit me. The reality of being a full-time student again and living states apart from my husband - it's all hitting me. I'm excited! But, anxious. I'm trying not to worry and think of everything that could possibly go wrong.
It seemed like I had months to prepare and pack and plan ... and now, all of the sudden, I'm moving in 2 weeks. Time flies!
I have a million things going on between packing, getting my husband situated and moved, getting my school affairs in order, finding housing, organizing the finances, damn. Pour this girl a drink, please!
Earlier today, I had the rug pulled out from under me (it's a good thing I went to an awesome Spin class this morning to load me up on endorphins beforehand), but it seems my housing situation has fallen through. I was really excited about it too! But oh well, sh*t happens. Thank goodness for friends who offered to take me in while I'm getting settled.
In the meantime, my frazzled brain needs to just dump. Photo dump, that is.
Apparently my creative juices really start to flow when I'm stressed: this morning's turkey sausage was a little different than normal. I threw some almond butter and SF maple syrup on them and warmed them in the microwave and HOLY MOLY, it was so good!
And then there's nothing like a little retail therapy to help soothe frazzled nerves.
Or gooey, drippy, Quest bars ...
Sorry, that was last night's dessert. Which I'm about to go repeat, right meow. Well, right after I share tonight's epic dinner ...
... a creation, that's for sure. So, I finally roasted my first spaghetti squash and decided to make a savory pancake out of it, to go along with my meatloaf. This was crazy good! And so simple!
1/3 cup egg whites + 1 tbsp coconut flour + seasonings + 2/3 cup squash
Mixed all together and then poured into the griddle (on medium-low heat) to make a big flap-jack type thing, which I then topped with my crumbled up meatloaf, sugar-free ketchup and nooch.
Definitely going to make a sweeter version of this pancake tomorrow morning, when I get back from my first ever BODY PUMP class!
More on that tomorrow.
