Workout and Word of the Day #26


Great job everyone!  We have made it through another Monday!  I woke up early enough to make a spinach, blueberry, and raspberry smoothie.  I think tomorrow I will add an apple.  I also made it through today without caffeine!  Unfortunately, I am still getting headaches.  Tonight I am drinking ginger tea and I am going to read up on magnesium.  Maybe I will take a supplement.  

After work, I paid some of my bills, then met my friend Paige for a nature walk through the waterfall park.  The weather was absolutely gorgeous and I am glad we got to catch up.  It also reminded me that I need to spend more time outside getting fresh air.  Hopefully gardening will help!

This evening I went to MIXXEDFIT and had a grand time!!!  I definitely challenged myself and worked up a sweat.  I can’t stop smiling whenever I take a Mixxedfit class!  Today someone asked me if I was a cheerleader because I smile and have so much energy.  That was a nice compliment :).

Tonight’s Word of the Day is:

peccadillo- noun

  1. a slight offense: Matthew’s thank you note to his hostess was sincere and touching; his only peccadillo was addressing her by her first name rather than Mrs. Price.

I hope you had a great day today!  We are off to a great start and I can tell that this week is going to be FANTASTIC!!! Let’s Make it GREAT!!!

Love, Joy, and Blessings Always,
