Day 69 - Happy Saturday!

Part of my plan to stay on track is to check into my blog daily. This blog keeps me honest and accountable. Even if it's a short post, I know I do better when I am posting and reading daily.

Breakfast this morning was a smoothie made with chocolate protein powder, 1 c. frozen strawberries, 1 tbs. flax oil, and 1 tbs. almond butter. So yummy, so filling. I did an hour on the elliptical this morning, along with about 15 minutes of weights on my arms. I came home and had some leftover taco salad for lunch (ground turkey, shredded lettuce, reduced-fat cheese shreds, and salsa). Then I decided to paint my bathroom!

I bought the paint the other day - it was a can that had been tinted the wrong color. It caught my eye because the color is the exact same color stripe that runs through my favorite bathroom set that I used at the other house. It's a light aqua color paint, and the stripes in the shower curtain and accessories is this same color aqua, chocolate brown, taupe, and eggshell. I love the aqua color with chocolate brown... that's actually what my living room is done in, too.

I just got the first coat and trim done, so I'm gonna let it dry for a while then do a second coat. It really brightens up the bathroom. The old paint was pea green - ugh - and has always reminded me of baby sh*t. We've lived here since February, and I haven't decorated this bathroom at all because my bathroom set didn't match at all. And I didn't want to buy a new one because I really liked the old one. So now, I get a little more exercise in while making my home a little bit better!
