It's finally the middle of the week, which you guys are probably more excited for than I did since I'm off work, but none the less it's a good day :) I hope all of you are having a great week, and if it has been a little stressful maybe a good sweat will help you reset your happy clock ;)
I am going to go to the gym today, normally I workout at home or in my grandparents gym, but I am meeting up with my old roommate Mikey! I am really excited to see him again, its been about 2 years since we've seen each other, but more so because he is the reason I became a gym rat (of sorts lol), he encouraged me to workout when I had fallen down some stairs and was having a rough recovery. Well that was four and a half years ago, before my illness knocked me on my butt, I worked out five to six days a week either on my own, in a class, or with a trainer. I was at the gym so much that they offered me a job lol and I am not kidding either! Working out at the gym for me was a great way to deal with stress, and ironically it made me a super happy person (I really like a good sweat), this has probably been one of the hardest parts to deal with because I cannot workout like I used to.
It is actually weird that we decided to meet up today, because today is the day I made the Paleo Blackberry Bars, and boy does my house smell delicious. I figured I would surprise him with a post workout snack, that is not only healthy but tasty too :) Since I got some amazing news last night, Nathan and I are going on vacation together, possibly next month, I want to try and be aware of what I am putting in my body on the chance we will be somewhere warm and sunny. Eeekkkk so exciting!! But for now lets get down to the business of blackberries (almost seems like a half week theme doesn't it lol).
