My Everyday Life: Week 4

Here’s what this past week looked like:  My Everyday Life Week 4

This tree caught my eye. Made me stop my car, turn around and park.

My car battery died.  TWICE.

I met a nice woman named Maggie who helped me jumpstart my car in the parking lot of The Container Store. We had a nice discussion about the ridiculous amount of flavors they make for Cheez-Its now.  Thank you, kindness of strangers.

Also, my friend John helped me out when my battery died again at the gas station. Forever grateful!

Sometimes when people order a Food Journal for a friend, I write their personalized notes for them.

I love seeing how thoughtful people are.

I wrote it down!

Almost at a full month of writing down my meals in my food journal. 

 

It has helped me lose 5 lbs. this month. The best part is that I didn’t diet. I was more mindful of what I ate when I was writing it down. I am more engaged in writing down what I eat when I make it fun. Using my favorite pen helps!

When I went to pick up some pizza this week the guy complained that the sun was in his eye.

I said, “Ah, golden hour! It will get you.”

“This isn’t golden hour. I’m a photographer. I should know!” he replied.

Uh huh.

    I love these posts! (I loved the random sorry piece one especially this week!) They inspire me – my everyday life picture taking goes in spurts – I’ll be good for a few weeks and then won’t take anything for a few. If you are willing to share how you keep yourself inspired when you just aren’t feeling it, I’d love the input!

    Hey Tracy,

    Are you loving that day bag purse? I have it in my cart on Etsy, but I’m hesitant to pull the trigger! I’m a student so I rock a backpack most days, but some days where I’m at my practicum I don’t need a full backpack, but a solid purse would be excellent.

    Thoughts?

    I love the stair photo! When I first looked at it I thought it was a photo looking up the stairs but then I saw your feet and realized it was looking down the stairwell. Cool optical illusion!

  • Lisa

    I would love to see more of your fashion style girl!! I love your look and the links you post to your bags and clothes! Also meal prep of course and desssssserts and coffeeeee recipes!

    Loving the Weezer reference. 😉 That song (and album) will never get old to me.

  • Trish

    That mirror above the orange bear is mine!!! So funny to see it in a thrift store around here after our garage sale (I’m in Novato). I love your blog – I’m into all of the same things, including Greek food! Gotta try Souvla.

    It might have been only five minutes, but I bet they were glorious. I love the brief time after a full cleaning/straightening.

  • Maureen

    I love, love the photos…I love seeing what is in your purse posts. Those posts are fun.
    Would love more ideas on how to be creative with our kids. I love your blog! It is awesome. Please don’t get rid of the intentions of the week…these keep me motivated with my own. Keeping spreading joy and light!

    I love the cat photos! Got a bunch of them in this week’s post 🙂 Also enjoy the photos around your town, it’s so different from where I am.

  • Mrs D

    Random lurker delurking to say your photos are really OUTSTANDING, but my favourites are the cats. Gorgeous. The light on their coats and eyes!

  • Priya

    I love the photos of your house, particularly how you organise stuff- it is really motivational! Plus I’m nosy…!
    I love all your posts although I am not personally a big fan of the intentions as it stresses me out! I know it’s not meant to be and it’s motivational for others though!
    I really like the photos you post too, and love seeing what Cooper looks like as he is a October 2008 kid like my daughter!

  • Darlene

    I just pulled the Octopus card too!! Boundaries are my personal theme lately 🙂

  • Sierra

    Your tacos always look soooo good! Whenever I see you make yours, I always miss having a gas stove to char the tortillas on.
