Is there such a thing as a moving consultant?
I need to be project planned.
In my “normal” life I’m pretty organized. I’m structured. I have a routine and I like it. Some might call me Type A (though you wouldn’t know it from the past couple months… I blame Vegas).
Anytime I move it’s a whole new story. I turn into a Jack Russell puppy chasing it’s tail. I have bubble wrap everywhere. Piles of shit I have no idea what to do with. Empty boxes. Boxes that are 75% full… but that I can’t seal because I’m looking for little odds and ends I can cram it the remaining 25% (you know those odd spaces that need to be stuffed by nothing really fit in?).
Anyway. That’s where I am.
In the meantime, I’m half eating out and half eating the random stuff I can’t take with. Like everything in the freezer.
This WIAW is the first of a few very unplanned WIAWs to come. Enjoy the chaos. I am.

I’m trying to do more morning workouts since I need to be packing at night. The cold weather isn’t motivating and it freezes the shower… so I got a late start. Downed a couple of Banana-Chocolate Chip Protein Muffins (I added nuts and coconut shreds to the top of this batch) from the freezer and off to the gym I went.
Post-workout shake. Yes, it’s freezing and I made a super thick, icy chocolate shake. I used chocolate Growing Naturals rice protein, kale, and cinnamon in this one. Topped with sprinkles. Then I sat on my hand for an hour to thaw out.
Leftover chicken and a brussels salad with farro, tomatoes, cheese, and pumpkin seeds from my favorite lunch spot, MetroFresh. I’m going to miss that place!
Unpictured homemade fiber protein bar for a snack.
My mom and baby sister came over for dinner and I made a Garnish & Gather meal for us all. Mardi Gras pork chops with cheesy rice and red pepper turnips. Plus wine. Because duh.
There was a lot of chocolate and more wine for dessert. You know… so I don’t have to move it.
Our new place is being repainted and a new stove and dishwasher are being installed this week. #itsthelittlethings
