Good morning everyone! Happy Monday! Sorry I went MIA yesterday but I needed a break. I slept until 10:00!! Seriously, I do not remember the last time I slept past 7:00 so when I rolled over and saw the clock say 10:00 I was completely SHOCKED!! I guess my body really needed the rest! Then to make it even more unbelievable I layed down at 12:00 to work on the Sunday crossword and was OUT again! I woke up at 3:00! Seriously guys all I did was sleep! Then to top that off I decided to not even turn on my computer OR my cell phone ALL DAY LONG! It was amazing! Sometimes I feel like we get so wrapped up in technology that we forget how to exist without it! I have a blackberry and so I am connected to my email, phone, text message, and blackberry IM all the time. It is almost like you feel married to the next “ding” you will hear. Going without for an entire day actually felt very freeing!!
Do you sometimes feel married to technology?
I even did an easy dinner…crockpot chicken! I threw about a pound and half of frozen chicken thighs in a crockpot with a jar of salsa. The meat shreds perfectly and is easy to do whatever you want with it. Keith made tacos and I served mine simply over a little brown rice…perfect! And in sticking with my no technology rule I didn’t snap a picture of it.
We spent the rest of the night watching the pro-bowl. Neither of us really had a bone in that fight so we just enjoyed watching the best of the best fight it out. Hey…it’s football…you knew we’d be watching!
Monday has started off stong, from my uber restful day yesterday! At first, I was a little embarrassed by how lazy I was but Keith made me realize that obviously my body needed it and I shouldn’t beat myself up! I tend to burn the candle at both ends and sometimes I guess the body just says STOP!!!
When was the last time you allowed your body to make the rules?
And don’t forget, today is the last day for the Perfect Foods Bar Give-a-Way! Be sure to enter!! Winner will be announced tomorrow!
