Anti-Procrastination Weekly Update

AP-header1

 

My trip to California was so amazing. Thank you to those who followed along on Instagram and commented your delight for me in all that I experienced. I came back absolutely in awe of God’s creation and His love for me shown through beauty and the love of my sweet friends who I stayed with all week.

The day after I arrived back home, I had my every 3-month injection and my 6-month oncology checkup. My doctor checked for lumps and bumps and found none. I always breathe a sigh of relief after seeing my Oncologist and having her capable hands check me over. I’m eager to hear how my blood work looks. The injection set me back this week, as it always does. It is jolting, to rid the body of all hormones and set me into artificial menopause. I feel it both physically and mentally. It usually takes a good week to get back into the swing of life and start feeling myself. I think it was extra rough this time due to jet lag, coming down from the high of a wonderful vacation, and very little sun. I am starting to feel my easy joy, hope, faith and energy coming back so I’m eager to start this week!

Latest Obsessions

{some are affiliate links}

Best way to drink lots of water

Bubba Envy Vacuum Insulated Tumbler

There is just something about drinking super cold water with a big ol’ straw! I’ve been drinking more water than ever lately thanks to my new Bubba Envy Vacuum Insulated Tumbler. It keeps ice for over hours, has a large, easy- to- remove lid, fits easily under my ice dispenser and ALL of the ice goes right into the tumbler instead of on my floor!  It has a silicone base pad to keep it from slipping and fits perfectly in my car drink holders. I take it everywhere!

Aroma-Soft-Essential-Oil-Diffuser

Ongoing Obsessions

Kindle Fire

This ongoing obsession with my Kindle Fire is not letting up. I especially love using it in the evenings when tucked in bed. It’s like my own perfect sized, personal television. Before I indulge in watching Netflix or Amazon Prime shoes,  I make sure I read at least a chapter or two of whatever book is on my Kindle. I love using the same device to both read and watch. It is going to come in very handy on my flight to Cali!

Essential Oil Diffuser

Still using it daily and love it! The Aromatherapy Essential Oil Diffuser by AromaSoft is amazing for getting the scent out into larger rooms. It is priced very reasonably and works so well! After buying 4 other diffusers, I did some research, read a ton of reviews, and bought this one. I’m so happy I did!

Spaghetti Sauce Sweetened With Carrots

Recipes I’m Making This Week

{Watch my Instagram Stories for a glimpse of the making of these recipes. I often capture my cooking process!}

We divide our grocery budget according to how many weeks are in the month. This week’s groceries fell on the last week of April so I need to be a bit frugal this week. Whatever amount I go over in the previous weeks of the month come out of the following weeks budget, so by the time we get to the last week of the month there is usually not as much left as the first week.

Because of this, our meals this week will be pretty basic, buy yummy!

Tacos

Spaghetti (with homemade sauce sweetened with carrots!)

Instant Pot Buttery Lemon Chicken

Chicken Fried Rice

Veggie Burgers

 

Instant Pot Weekly Staples

Crockpot Bone Broth (made it in Instant Pot this time)

Instant Pot Yogurt  | Instant Pot Steel Cut Oats | Instant Pot Quinoa Instant Pot Hard Boiled Eggs |
