deload week thoughts

Hi guys! Deload week has got me kind of bored and all I can think about is Sunday and starting my new strength program. Nine weeks to go until my first ever powerlifting meet, and I've got a lot of work to do--- eeeek!!

Here is what I've been up to and thinking about so far this week... 

Last week at yoga, my quads burst into flames. This week, it was still my quads, but my shoulders joined the party. Like real fire was burning inside of me, I kid you not. It quickly turns into the best feeling in the world, though!

I eat in some very strange places at work, and at some weird times, but everyone's gotten used to it! The one thing that I am super careful about is germs, though. Since I eat so much at school, there are a lot of opportunities for germs to get inside my body. I am a germophobe and abide by the rule of not putting my hands anywhere near my face, especially in school or public places. I am also soooo crazy about where I put my fork if I have to rest it, and I rarely ever touch food with my hands.

Adding cinnamon to my PB2 is my new thing. How did I not think of it sooner? It is especially delicious on Cinnamon Raisin Ezekiel bread with grape jelly. I don't think I'll ever make PB2 without cinnamon from now on!

White nails and toes are my absolute favorite. Tuesdays are rest days for me, so I usually try getting my nails done, and doing other errands after school so I don't have to waste any weekend time!

Bo is the most flexible and gangly dog I've ever met! He can twist and bend his body in the weirdest ways, and he will let you do anything to him and truly nothing will bother him! He can also squirm his way into the bed without you ever noticing, which is a good and bad thing!

I am a Cumberland Farms regular. I have been going to CF every day for my iced coffee for a long time now, and I just love how the coffee is always delicious and super cheap- $1.06! I used to go to Dunkin Donuts or Starbucks and 4 out of 5 times my coffee wouldn't taste right, so I wasted a lot of money!! I do go to Starbucks once in a while when if I'm craving their iced coffee with soy milk, but on normal days, Cumbies it is. The workers there compliment me every day and tell me they love my bright clothes, so maybe that's really why I keep going ;)

I am so happy my new powerlifting belt came today! This one is much more solid and supportive than the Velcro one I have, so I can't wait to try it out Sunday (it's going to take me 3 days to figure out how to put it together I think!!)
