Do you ever have one of those day when everything just goes right? Like perfect. Like you probably should play the lotto because you’re having such an awesomely perfect day?! Like you dance around your house for no reason except that you’re happy because you’re having such a absolutely incredible day?!
Well, I had that day yesterday.
Of course, I have days when things go right or I’m happy but it seemed like the world was in my favor yesterday and everything was just awesome.
First, like I mentioned yesterday, I had a meeting about working at the fitness desk at my gym. I originally thought I’d have to work at 4:30 am (yes, I said 4:30 am) or 2 pm. Both times are terrible for my schedule with the kids. I’d have to pay for Jaden to go to before care at his school. I’d have to figure out how to get Jacob on the bus. And I’d have to wake up at 3:15 am. (if you’re someone who does this regularly, I feel for you. I am not a 3:15 am person).
I mentioned in my meeting that I am unable to work on Mondays and Thursdays because I watch my niece and 9 am – 2 pm was the most ideal time for me. Well, low and behold, there was a 9 am – 2 pm position open on Wednesdays and Fridays.
Check one for me. It was like fate. Perfection.
Next, I went to the grocery store. As I’ve mentioned a million times, I usually drink a Rockin’ Refuel protein drink after every workout. They can be a little pricey, up to $2 a bottle, but yesterday the grocery store had them on sale for $1.25 a bottle.
Danny mentioned that I bought a lot of protein drinks. E
Another check in my favor. Yay for saving money.
After dinner, we stopped at Target so I could look for black pants for work. I hate buying pants in general. I especially hate jeans. Pants never seem to fit me right. Don’t even get me started on jeans and most yoga/stretchy pants are too darn short.
Well, yesterday at Target, I managed to find not one but two pairs of black pants in a long size. The best part?! They were a size small. Woo hoo! This was like the most exciting thing for me. I don’t think I would ever be considered small. I am a tall girl. I’m 5’8″. I got some hips on me (child bearing hips as one of my nice doctors referred to them). So, I was elated that not only did I find stupid pants that fit but they were long and a size small.
Two checks for me because that’s awesome.
Target was a great trip all around last night. My Instagram friend, Suzanne, shared a picture of jelly bean and confetti cake gum yesterday and being the gum addict that I am, I was determined to find it.
Target for the win!
#GumLife. Another check for me.
Then, we headed down the frozen aisle. Most nights after dinner, Danny and I eat a Yasso Greek yogurt bar as our evening treat. They’re low in calories and have some protein so they’re a great healthy treat, but they can be expensive. At Target, they’re normally $3.99 a box for four bars. At other grocery stores they’re $4.99 a box.
Well, Target had two new flavors that I’ve never seen before, chocolate chip cookie dough and coffee chocolate chip, for $1 a box. Yes, you read that right. $1 a box! And they weren’t even on sale or clearance. They were regularly priced at $1 a box, although the other flavors were still $3.99.
I couldn’t figure out why they were a dollar. Maybe they were marked wrong? But I was at another Target earlier in the week and they cost the same but they were completely gone at that Target. We bought five boxes.
Another check for me.
I was having such a great day, I ate two of those bars and didn’t even feel guilty about it.
So as you can see, yesterday was just one of those days when everything falls into place, and everything is right in the universe.
I should have played the lotto.
This morning, Danny and I went to the gym.
We worked on back and biceps which we haven’t done it a couple of weeks and it was tough.
We did: seated rows, lat pulldowns, straight arm dumbell pullovers, dumbbell rows, deadlifts, bicep curls, bicep curl machine, cable machine curls. Woo! It was tough today!
We’re supposed to get big snowstorm tonight so our plans for the Superbowl might be changed for tomorrow. We might end up staying home, watching the game, and eating fajitas.
Have a great rest of your weekend!
