I posted the quote above on Instagram and Facebook last week and wanted to document it here too. I heard it in yoga a few weeks ago and it has been stuck in my head ever since. Sometimes I just find myself repeating it. Powerful words. Read all of our body image related posts here.
On Monday I had to go buy a new dishwasher since ours conveniently quit working the week we went under contract. My dad and I went down to Lowe’s to get one that I found online. It said they had it in stock and I had a coupon so I was all set, or so I thought. Once we got there they couldn’t find either of the two they had in stock so they actually let me get one that was better (and $100 more) for the same price and I was still able to use the coupon. We LOVE the dishwasher, our buyer is lucky he is getting such an awesome quiet dishwasher haha. 🙂
As you can tell with our workouts lately, we’ve only been going to the gym four days per week. This is all we can handle right now and I’m actually loving it. We also try to do 1-2 days of cardio per week and the other 1-2 days are complete rest days. You will see that I normally walk on those days but that’s it. I’m not running or going to the gym. I just like to walk during the day to get outside and move around a bit. I posted the picture below on Snapchat (hesheeatclean), it’s true that my “New Years Resolution” was to eat more and workout less.
Scott’s birthday was Friday. He turned 34. Not really sure how that happened but I can’t believe he’s 34. As you probably gathered from previous posts, we don’t really celebrate many holidays or birthdays the way others do. We don’t buy each other gifts or make a big deal out of things. Scott wanted to go to Whole Foods to eat so that’s what we did! He loves to go there because he can get many different things (he normally builds a salad, gets BBQ, wings, and occasionally a piece of pizza and cookie!). We also stopped by Costco quickly on our way home. We planned on hiking on Saturday but changed our mind. After the gym, we went to a nearby neighborhood that’s really hilly to run, walk, and do hill sprints. We are hoping we can truly go hiking next weekend. Fingers crossed the weather forecast stays sunny and warm!
I’m still using the Run Builder as a guide but adjusting as I see fit. I don’t really run that often (especially in less than ideal weather) so I normally swap out incline training and sprints for straight runs.

Publix (total $20.28):
I went to Publix to get ground chicken breasts since one near us carries it again! This means we won’t have to make them grind it for us in the store (which they did but I don’t think they were too happy about). I’m not sure if it just had the wrong price on it or what but the chicken rang up for a lot more than the sticker so I ended up getting them at the lower price plus a free pound because it was wrong! I’m slowly making up for having to buy that dishwasher. 😉
