I would love to become a nanny but will settle for what I can get. Just not fast food
I do because I can. I can because I want to. I want to because you said I couldn't.

Going thrift store shopping today. I call this a workout because of all the clothes I will try on and carry around. I love finding awesome deals!!! I love the idea of reduce, reuse and recycle.

Yeah shopping was fun. Found some really nice clothes and completely shocked my workout buddy yesterday lol. He has never seen me in grown up clothes. Normally sees me in workout clothes or dressed up. I am enjoying wearing normal clothes instead of scrubs all the time.

Well yesterday I had an interview. Didn't think it went well at all but I looked damn good. Wish I had taken a pic of me in the whole outfit! And today I was offered a job. I am not looking forward to this job 1 bit because it is going to be grueling on my body because it is night shift and I am back in a nursing home lifting on residents, bending over the beds etc.... Oh well it is steady income, benefits and can help put me through school!

Made some protein bars over the weekend and I think next time either I need to add a bit more agave or drop back to 2 scoops protein powder.... could also probably do with just 1 tbsp flaxseed instead of 2. Trial and error in the cooking world
