Monday’s Blues

It wasn’t a terrible day, but it wasn’t the greatest, either. It was storming, the kids were cranky, I overslept a little, and I didn’t get in a morning workout. No morning workout means I’m cranky and still half-asleep on the commute to work.

I was busy as a one-armed paper hanger last night and I was listening to the MTV Movie Awards for one reason only: Shailene Woodley and The Fault in Our Stars. I just recently read the book, after learning Shai was in the movie, of course. Now I’m on a big John Green kick and ready to devour more of his work. However, the movie was AMAZING and I wanted it to win and win big. An added bonus to the wins was the acceptance speech from Shai. All of them.

Moving on, check out my bone broth from last night. It was boiling hot so I let these sit on the counter and seal. These are turkey, chicken, and beef bones. I drink a cup each morning and sometimes at night, too. It depends on whether or not I need extra gut-healing and right now, I certainly do. I had a pretty severe gluten contamination from 2 things: new face cream and flour from cooking for Stephen. This also explains why yesterday’s run was rough and I’m already exhausted from work today. More broth and fermented foods, please.

My newest stash of “hippie oils” as my awesome brother-in-law calls them. These are Native American Nutritionals and I’ll have a whole separate blog post about them after I try them out. I did my research before buying these.

Lunch! I made this great big pot of thai coconut soup that has sweet, sour, salty, and spicy all mixed into one bowl. I LOVE this stuff. Breakfast was a big bowl of nothing and this was lunch.

Not much to say about a Monday, but tomorrow is the dreaded Tuesday. I’m optimistic that I will survive the day Winking smile
