Mondays are fun days too! I started the morning off taking my car into the shop. That’s when I realized how sleepy I was still. Good thing I was able to go grab my chai tea latte afterwards. (Chai is my go-to drink ever since I cut down on coffee. Yes, it’s caffeinated still but it doesn’t affect me like coffee.) Working in the store today was good. It was a typical day, just a little slower. I think everyone is prepping for Thanksgiving. We usually have manager meetings on Mondays and today was no different. However, I have been practicing gratitude the past week or so with my fitness accountability group. I decided to bring a gratitude exercise and element into our meeting tonight. It fit so well with all the positive mindset talk we’ve been covering lately! And perfect week to do so. Another good day! No emotional mood swings or outbursts.

Started off my work day meeting a friend at the coffee shop in the morning! First off, the barista was super nice especially having equipment fail on her while dealing with a lot of customers. Kudos to her. And the friend I was meeting up did some work for my business and I am so excited to share it soon!! She is amazing, talented and super down-to-earth. Can you believe I met her at her calligraphy workshop and then found out she was a current customer at my shop?? So crazy. I went to work afterwards and worked in the store until 3pm. Did some work in the office and we braved the rush hour traffic home. Stopped by the grocery store again and decided to make pasta again! Except made pasta that was more gut friendly. Our tummies weren’t too happy last night. Got my workout in today too. It was a good day.

I worked an opening shift at work so actually drank coffee today. My body responds well to caffeine when I need it and not so good when I don’t need it. So, today was a great chance for my soy peppermint white chocolate mocha from Starbucks with half the amount of pumps! (I know, it’s really not thaaaat complicated) I think I pushed myself hard at work today because my feet hurt afterwards. Had dinner, worked on a few things with Ralph and now winding down so we get enough rest for an early morning tomorrow. Today was a good day.
