Days Go By….


The past few days have been less creative on the food side.  There were a few good things in there (smoothies and the like), but aside from that, I honestly don’t remember too much!  It could be because it’s 7am on a Sunday morning, and since I haven’t had coffee yet, that my brain isn’t completely firing….

I will say that I’ve been sticking to the gluten-lite life, and am very happy so far.

This morning is going to be coffee and some fresh juice.  I’m very much looking forward to that!

I’m having a late lunch with my friend AC, and then dinner will be red beans and rice.

Hopefully, I’ll be doing some bulk cooking later this evening to prepare for the week!


I ran most days, but most of them were short.  I was happy I was a little sore from my strength training, but I still haven’t done it again.  I wonder if I bribe myself somehow, I’ll actually do that regularly.   Hmmm….will have to ponder that one!


Well, this week has been a total blur.  D and I have both had crazy busy work schedules all well long.  Lots of early meetings, lots of late meetings, and very little in between.  I’m very thankful that this is a short week at the office.

Perhaps the biggest even of note these past few days is that my eldest child, A, went to her first formal dance.  Her boyfriend, N, escorted her to his high school’s Ring Dance.  Enjoy the pictures of her….she just looks so stunning.

for once, A smiling in a picture was easy. Her date...not so much
I got a brief smile from N here...I'm pretty sure I was threatening them if they didn't smile...

I am a 45 yo busy career single mom and doctoral student attempting to find her inner athlete, be a gluten-free(ish) vegan, and find a way to balance it all without going crazy! I love to cook, read, run, box, do yoga, dance, travel, and learn as many new things as I can - which often gets me in trouble.... I am passionate about life in general, and if I didn't write about it, I'd probably implode.
