Let there be light
I am still gathering my thoughts on this ordeal and yes, it was an ordeal. One week with no power and having no one to rely on but ourselves but it's always been me and the Mr against the world. Just makes me love him more. I have a lot of pics to gather, resize and prep for tomorrow's post. I am so thankful for everyone who emailed or left supportive comments. Thank you for sending your vibes our way.
I must say that right now, I am the most proud of us maintaining our lifestyle in the worst of conditions. I made some amazing meals on the grill. From a ham, cheese and caramelized onion omelet to bbq salmon to cheese stuffed chicken burgers to egg muffin sandwiches...I told the Mr "I got the memo we were out but not the one that said we had to suffer." We did a workout every night we usually had one scheduled. Granted they were shorter so we didn't keel or make it rain in the basement from the combo of our humidity and sweat. (We literally melted ice quicker when we worked out!!) But they were effective enough for me to still lose a pound last week.
I cannot begin to tell you the pride we both feel in the accomplishing that. 100+ degrees, doing what needed to be done to not let our home fall prey to Mother Nature (in more ways than one if ya get my drift) but nothing beat knowing that we didn't use those things that 98% of people would consider a free pass to bow out of exercise.
I will get a better post together for you tomorrow. Thanks for coming back! I've missed you guys!
What's made you proud of yourself lately?
