I tried something new today!

I usually put Splenda in my smoothies for a little extra sweetness.  Steiner, the company I will be working for on the cruise, has given me some homework to research clean foods, toxins that enter the body, and other things of that nature.  While researching, I made the decision that once I was done with my box of Splenda, I would be switching over to stevia.  I had never tried stevia before, but when I was a Good Earth Natural Foods there was a jar full of little packets for 6¢ each!  I couldn’t beat that, so I picked up two.

I put it in a blueberry spinach (or green monster) smoothie this morning, and it tasted great!  I only used one packet because I wasn’t sure how sweet it would be and it was perfect.  Looks like I will officially be saying goodbye to Splenda…as soon as that box is gone!


Jam Packed Day

Today, I am working for Emmis again fitting children with bicycle helmets.  Right after that I have a sewing lesson.  For graduation, my grandma got me a great sewing machine to use on projects.  Now, I have sewn a couple of times in my life and my freshman year in college I actually was in the costume shop almost everyday sewing costumes for the lyric theater production, but I am not an expert!  I have an idea of what I would like my first project to be, so I’ll keep you posted on the progress! I am also attending a BodyWorks class with a friend tonight, I am usually a morning worker outer (other than the classes I teach).  Then, I am going straight to watch the Bachelorette with my girls!


Now, how do we handle days like today, where it seems like we are constantly racing from one point to the next?  What I do is I make a timeline for the day.

  • Emmis 9:30am-3pm
  • Eat an early light dinner 3-4:30pm
  • Sewing Lesson 4:30-6pm
  • Go home and change 6-6:45pm
  • BodyWorks at LA Fitness 7-8pm
  • Bachelorette with the girls 8-10pm
That is very scheduled and doesn’t leave much wiggle room, so another thing I do to prepare is get my clothes ready the night before, bring everything I need with me (computer for blogging, sewing machine, workout clothes, granola bar) so that if things run over or I don’t have free time I will be able to work through it.
Now, let’s conquer our busy Mondays!
