WIAW #26 + Water Leak

Happy Hump Day, all!  I’ve had an eventful night thus far.  Right as I was sitting down to write this post I noticed Cooper kept running over to the guest bathroom and half barking at the closed door.  I finally got up and heard water.  Turns out, the person who lives above us overflowed their bathtub…by A LOT…and it was leaking (heavily) into our guest bathroom.  I then tried to get through to maintenance but the call line wasn’t working and it took forever to get someone on the phone.  They’re currently working on it, and trying to dry things up but it’s been quite a mess.  On the bright side, we know the cause, there weren’t any broken pipes, and it didn’t happen while Cooper was here alone.

Water Leak

I know it doesn’t look like much but there was a LOT of water (the entire floor was coated and the pot ended up just under half full.  The sketchy part for me… on the side of the wall it looked like water was coming down from the breaker box.  Not okay!

Moving on, let’s talk a bit about food from the day.  I started my day with a yummy Chocolate Shakeology that also included unsweetened almond milk, banana, almond butter and cinnamon.  (No picture.)  Lunch was more of a breakfast but it worked.  I had 3/4 cups non fat plain Greek yogurt, 1 tsp honey, cinnamon, 1 cup mixed berries and 1/4 cup Nature’s Path cereal.

Snacks included two mini Babybel light cheeses at work.

And then 1 cup of grapes at home while preparing dinner.  Speaking of dinner, I made a Blue Apron meal of Squid Ink Linguine Pasta with Shrimp and Cherry Tomatoes.  I’m a huge fan of pasta and seafood so I was happy :) .

Not the prettiest pictures but it tasted yummy

With dinner I had a glass of white wine, and that wraps up my night.  I’m ready for 8 hours of sleep and not a second less!  I better get to bed!

New Week, Fresh Start

Vegan Bowl

Rather than doing my usual Make Up Monday post I’ve decided to just do a (formerly) “normal” post.  Formerly I would simply share about my food, fitness and life from the day a few times a week.  Somehow I got away from that and I miss it!  I miss the short and sweet check ins! [Read On]
