Hi!

Welcome to my blog where I share what I eat, how I train, and how I live a happy, healthy life!

 

my sleeping situation, grill master, and a sneak peek of the kitchen!

my sleeping situation, grill master, and a sneak peek of the kitchen!

Last night, I woke up around 11pm because this was my sleeping situation. And this is how it is every single night!!! This is a KING bed. Do you even know any other dog who sleeps on his back or takes up this much space??? It has to stop. Mike couldn't believe it when I showed him this picture this morning!

I was SO excited to start my new program today! We are back to training in the garage every day rather than going to the gym on Sundays, mostly because that is why we invested in a garage gym! When I start peaking for Nationals, I'll go train with my coach once a week again, but today was really fun in the garage. 

I have lots of volume with this new program and it makes me really happy. I started training low bar squats today and they felt great, bar path was straight as an arrow, so I think it is going to be a good thing. Bo doesn't care even a little bit. 

Of course we had to go get breakfast after our lift and my meal there is always the same. Delicious. 

After that, I had to go get a bunch of stuff for projects! My dad is here, so I got new lights for the outside and he helped me replace what was left of the brass!!! Our friend (the painter) was also here finishing the kitchen/tv room/ bathroom/hallway and I helped him hang a couple doors a some other random stuff! 

I had a super quick lunch of oats, protein, and unsweetened almond milk. People often get caught up on how long to let it soak- I sometimes don't let it soak at all and just eat like muesli or cereal and it's still so good. 

Later on I had some peanut butter, of course.

Before dinner, Mike hung more shutters and my dad made sure he didn't die. He's almost done with the shutter project... almost.

I was the grill master tonight and butterflied some chicken breasts all by myself, and grilled turkey burgers, zucchini, and summer squash for all these working people at my house! It was probably a bad idea because up until now, I was never the one to grill, and I don't really want to be, but I was hungry and it wasn't going to cook itself.

Here's a sneak peek at the kitchen! I will be doing a whole before and after post so you can see everything and understand just how big of a deal this is!!!!!

I just had a bunch more peanut butter and I am headed to bed because it's way past my bedtime now! It was a super busy, productive, and great day- hope yours was too :)
