Day 17 ~ Most Proud Moment

Evil Me

Day 17 ~ Most proud moment:

It is so hard to pick just one, because there are many accomplishments I am proud of in my life. Outside of naturally birthing two singletons and a set of twins, I am over the moon with kicking booze to the curb five-years ago, putting my life back together, eating better, ditching meat and dairy for a vegan diet, getting healthy, and adding actual exercise to my life. It feels absurdly awesome to feel so good. ♥

Day 15 ~ An Average Day

My Profile

Day 15 ~ An average day:

My day begins around 07:55, when I wake to give my Mom her 08:00 medicine. I sometimes have to fight the urge to crawl back into bed, and there are days I can’t resist. Once I’m up, I grab a glass of water with juiced grapefruit and lemon, then a few pieces of fruit (a peach and/or an apricot, usually). After this, I do my 15-minute yoga routine, and follow with my run/walk. Once I’m home, I get breakfast ready for my Mom and Elflings. Then I shower, shower my Mom, then my Elflings, and we all get ready. If we have to do any running around, we do that, otherwise we take my Mom for a walk, or play things by ear based on what she feels like doing. At 12:00, I/we give my Mom her medicine, and start making lunch. I may have some of what I make (especially pea butter and jam – YUM-OH!), but I prefer fresh fruit and veg and a glass of Mean Green Juice. In the afternoon, I sit before my laptop with another glass of Mean Green, and tease a blog post or two out of my brain. If I’m really lucky, I might even have an idea blossom for the book I’d eventually love to write. At 16:00, I/we give my Mom her medicine, and start figuring out what’s for supper (sometimes, I need more time/motivation to come up with an idea, but not everyday). My Mister comes home around 17:00, and we help each other with supper prep (he unloads the dishwasher and we chat while supper comes together). I eat with my family, and have a another glass of Mean Green. After supper, I load the dishwasher, run it, make another batch of Mean Green juice, and tidy up. At 20:00, I/we give my Mom her last dose of the day, and we wind down. Around 21:00, my Mom goes to bed and we all tuck her in. After this, I’ll normally sip my last glass of Mean Green for the day, and knit while my Mister and I cuddle on the couch to watch an episode of Dexter, Game of Thrones, Supernatural, X-Files, or an interesting movie. Somewhere between 23:30 to 01:00, I finally decide to go to bed (I know, I’m a glutton for punishment). At 07:55, my day begins again.
