Hi, guys! Happy Thursday! 🙂
Just wanted to pop in real quick with a “day in the life” blog post since I feel like I haven’t done one in awhile. I’m making some fun behind-the-scenes changes over here, so I’m hoping to bring them back a little more often. Plus, I heard you guys enjoy them the most! 🙂
This morning started like most do: Iced coffee mixed with “iced tea that tastes liked coffee” and collagen followed by breakfast, which was some leftovers from the fridge. We’re off to Vermont to tomorrow, so I’m trying to use them up. In the mix: Parmesan Roasted Fennel with sliced chicken sausage.
After that, I did 1 of 2 sample collections for a Women’s Fertility Test. You take one blood sample at the start of your cycle and then one in the middle. (FYI: We’re NOT trying to get pregnant – just trying to figure out my hormones.) The nice people at EverlyWell sent me this test as well as their Food Sensitivity Test to try out. The Food Sensitivity Test just had one sample collection, which I did last Friday, and I ALREADY received the results. I can’t believe how easy and FAST the whole process was. Some of the results matched my LEAP results, but others were totally different, so now I know NO IDEA what to think. I just hit up all of my Registered Dietitian friends and plan to send Kristen a message later, so we’ll see what it all means.
After that, I got Quinn and myself ready for the day. I dropped him off at school and then headed to my friend’s house to get my hair colored. The grays were out of control! I shared the photo below on Instagram and received a bunch of questions about the hair dye since I’m trying limit my exposure to crazy chemicals. I don’t know of any natural dyes (besides henna), but I figure if I’m only coloring my hair a few times a year, it’s probably not that bad. I’m more worried about everyday exposure, ya know?
After my hair appointment, I had a meeting and then headed to Rosa Farms for an iced coffee and lunch. I actually ended up having 3 slices of avocado toast. It was so good and the gal making them didn’t want to waste the rest of the avocado, so I just ate what she made for me. You can never have enough avocado toast, right?
I hope you guys have a wonderful day! Mal, Quinn, and I have a hot date with Target this afternoon – new sheets and birthday party supplies! 🙂
