Going to my first Pilates class got me thinking about how it is already July. JULY! Someone please tell me how that happened. Anyway, this means we are in the second half of the year and I always like to take some time to look back to January 1 and think about all the things I wanted to accomplish this year. I'm excited that I'm doing pretty well on my resolutions to step outside my comfort zone. Starting a new workout program that is a totally different style was a huge step outside my bubble, and in my personal life I made a big career change--totally out of the confort zone. Both of these decisions have made me SO happy I can honestly say I'm absolutely loving living out of my bubble.
After realizing it was July 1st yesterday, I then realized that meant we are headed out of town in a couple days! My parents got a beach house in Norrhern, California so B and I are headed up there to celebrate the 4th of July. I could not be more excited. It is 65 degrees and sunny in CA... and it's like 112 degrees in AZ so it will be amazing to get out of the heat. I wanted to relax all day yesterday but when I realized our trip was quickly approaching and that I probably wasn't going to have time during the week to get stuff done, I decided doing a little bulk cooking was probably a good idea.
I made banana coconut bread, apple cinnamon muffins, (I can't get enough of these lately) chicken fried rice, and some extra chicken breasts for lunches. This should easily get us through until Wednesday and I'll be able to take some of the muffins with us too. One huge perk of having my family on board with clean eating is I know the fridge at the beach house is already stocked with the foods I love!
And here is the reason I don't bulk cook too often. It makes a huge mess out of my kitchen and gives me anxiety! Ahh!!
