It's The Simple Things In Life...

Another week gone by and we officially survived the first full week of school - yay us!
I'm a little bummed that I only got to workout twice this week, I went for a jog Monday morning and woke up to horrible gallstone pain which prevented me from working out on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. But enough was enough and today I thought Mind Over Body and I got my run on!! 
Now a look into my week with pictures :)

Monday:
We got to celebrate the beautiful birthday girl! My mami :)
She turned 53yrs old!

Tuesday:
 Trying on a faux fur vest at Costco. It was warm, and made me think that I need one for this Winter - Ha!


 Our See Ya'll later date with Gracie at Alice's Tea Cup. It was our last meeting before she left NYC and it was very heartbreaking to say goodbye to her :( She is such a sweetheart and it was like old friends reuniting again! Miguelito was crying as we walked away and I had tears streaming down my face.I promise that a post is coming up about our time with Gracie.

  Wednesday:
A look at my breakfast :) Delicious toasted slice of Ezequiel bread with Almond butter, some banana with Flax Seed & Chia seeds. A very healthy breakfast indeed!

Thursday:
Drinking my new protein shake from Nature's Bounty in my World War 2 poster girl mug! I love this thrifted mug so much, it was easy to gulp down the shake with such an inspiring picture :)


Spending time with my Miguelito, my heart, my world and my true love always makes my day. I can't wait to pick him up from school already!

Friday:
Mind over Body! Despite feeling the little nagging gallstone pain I decided that a jog was in order. I told myself that I could do it and I did :) Woot!! Nothing like a nice morning jog to kick off an awesome weekend!

"Keep Calm And Run On"

Happy Friday Loves

Love,
Kary xoxo

  2. Oh, I love Alice's Tea Cup! I told Gracie all about it when we went for our afternoon tea at the White Heather here in Victoria {it feels like such a long time ago now :( even though it was just two weeks}

    So glad you two girls had such a fabulous time together. I only wish I could have joined you.

    Looks like a wonderful week, except for the gall bladder pain. I remember it well!

    Hope you have a lovely weekend. Maybe we can squeeze in a Saturday night skype?

    love E xoxo

  6. Except for the gallstone pain (I had to have mine taken out- pain was insufferable) looks like you had a great week, something to celebrate alongside your mom's bday. Wish her many, many more and have a great weekend.

  9. I agree! Nothing like a morning jog. I prefer doing it at that time too, sometimes just to get it over with. Love the breakfast too! Almond butter is my fave.
