… To Cali, Cali!
I am excited, scared, anxious, happy, overwhelmed but ready to take this head on.
Oh and by the way, I need to be out of my apartment by September 20th!!! While this is so soon, its okay because that means I will be home by my birthday (September 30th) and that means I am going to be started my 27th year off fresh and focused in the state I want to be it. And that has to be a good sign.
I have a lot to do in less than a month, but I know I can get it done. Probably the only thing I know for sure as of this moment is that I will be driving. Hopefully this is my last cross country road trip ever because it is definitely not my first.
I will keep you all in the loop as I go, but I just want to say THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU to all of you who had the nicest words of encouragement to say to me. I appreciated them all so much and they really did give me that extra push to make this decision.
So with all that being said, here goes nothing!! California here I come!
It was so nice yesterday to be able to make lunch in my own kitchen. I think this is my new dream. Making lunch at home everyday. I am going to try to live as close to my new office as possible (you know when I get my dream job after I land in SF next month) so I can walk home for lunch.
I whipped up a pretty tasty salad complete with lettuce, onion, cucumber, feta (fat free,) hummus guacamole, a slice of turkey + a strip of turkey bacon. I also put a little Trader Joe’s Fat Free Balsamic on top. First time having this + I loved it!
A little while later I had a snack of banana + Dark Chocolate PB + chia seeds. Yum, yum + more yum.
A little while after my snack I headed to the gym for my 2 miles that I needed to make up for after missing it this weekend. And you know what? It felt so good. I think with all my news, I just needed to run! I warmed up and planned on running 1 mile, doing a breather and then doing the other, but at 1 mile I knew I could do more so I kept on running until I was at 2 miles. It felt pretty good! I cooled down, and did some upper body strength work (lat pull downs, rows, chest press + some ab work) and called it a workout.
I made a quick + easy dinner afterwards of whole wheat pasta, zucchini, mushrooms, onions, garlic + chicken sausage with some olive oil on top. Oh + a sprinkle of freshly grated parmesan. 🙂
I also had a I’m-moving-back-to-California-celebratory glass of wine, + I ended my night with one of these.
Have you ever driven cross country? Favorite route? I think I know which way I’m going but I probably won’t share until I get to CA! (Safety first!)
