Can You Clone Me?

Is this week done yet? I swear, the level of hectic-ness is through the week this week. I’m sure I created some of it on my own, but MAN time goes so fast when you have a lot of things to do. Sometimes I feel like I need to be two people to do it all on my own.

Anyway, I hope everyone had a wonderful Wednesday! We’re through the hump! Yippee!

I was very good at the purse party last night and only bought two pairs of earrings. One pair for myself, and one for my BFF, whose birthday is next Friday 😀 Oh, an I also had this:

Twas very good.

It wasn’t until around 7:00 that I left Missy’s house, and I know I didn’t feel like coming home to spend an hour cooking a meal. Shane’s been working alllll week at night, so I didn’t expect him to cook either. His hours are crazy lately. So I did the only thing left to do, and picked up sushi!

Mmm I had tuna, salmon, shrimp, and a california roll.

I swear I gobbled it up in 2 minutes.

After showering and cleaning up the house a bit, I was itching for some ice cream, but knew I’d probably already indulged in enough fat grams for the day, so I bet you can guess what I had insteaaaddd.

That’s right! Banana Icecream!

With some banana protein powder.

Soon I’m going to make a post about protein powders. I don’t include powders in my diet as much as I used to, but still do to some extent, and would like to know your thoughts, but I digress.

And you know I topped it with raw chocolate syrup.

It was soooo good.


My run was awesome. It included lots of hills, so it was nice for me to get a little bit more used to that. I did about 4 miles all together, with a half mile warm up job, 3 mile tempo run, and half mile cool down. It was hard, but I’m glad I finished.

I’m excited today because not only is it a rest day, but it’s also go shopping day! I’m hitting up the shops with my girl Heidi. Even though we’re mostly going maternity clothes shopping (it’s her first time, and she needs moral support,) I always have a good time with Heidi! And I’m so going to try on some pregnant bellies and take a picture. Then I’ll show the picture to Shane and freak him out. Muahahaha.

But speaking of rest days, I’m thinking about increasing them to two days a week. I know almost everyone works 40 hrs/wk, but I just can’t seem to find the time to get everything done. Maybe that extra 1-2 hours can help me find balance. Gotta do what ya gotta do.

What do you do to make sure you have balance in your life? How do you manage to get the day to day tasks of life checked off the to-do list?

  1. I like to make to-do lists because it keeps me on track…however, I write everrrrything I want to accomplish in that one day. Sometimes is can be a lot and a lot of times I do not get it all done–so I then move the items I did not get to, to the next day.

  2. Thanks for the tip, sweetie! 🙂

  3. Excellent questions. I have yet to figure this out myself, so when you find out, let me know!! 🙂

    I guess my biggest thing is that, if I am really busy and stressed and just can't make time for a workout, I try not to beat myself up about it. That just = more stress!

  4. Paige, finding balance is one of my biggest struggles!! Sleep, work outs, work, my daughter, time with the hubby, finding time to COOK – I haven't done this in forever!! It seems to be never ending with me!

    Great job at the purse party… I would have done major damage 😉

  5. That sushi looks so good. I LOVE California rolls… definitely my favorite!

    Congrats on pushing through the run! I always try to listen to my body and let it tell me how hard I should push myself and what exercises I should do each day.


  6. Your banana froyo looks amazing with the raw chocolate syrup!

    Right now I only work part time and I still have trouble with balancing everything. I don't know how everyone does it! Maybe you just need a rest week to catch up on everything.

  7. sushi + banana ice cream = amazing evening!!
    congrats on the four miles too!

  8. That BSN Dessert powder is junk. Try ProtoWhey. It is better.

  9. Yummy! I love Sushi : ) Great blog!

    I recently started a nutrition/wellness blog and have my first give away!! Check it out : )
