Feelin Hot Hot Hot

title isn’t as cute if you don’t know the song. Reaquaint yourself here….


Dinner last night was considered a mixed bag. D and I liked it, kids didn’t. They must have seriously under developed taste buds. I’ll have to work on that!

I made a French stew in the pressure cooker of red beans and veggies. Lots of mushrooms, celery, carrots, and cauliflower. 9 minutes to make, can’t beat it. My favorite thing was actually a Facebook conversation related to my dinner….

I made a comment about D liking dinner, and my kids not liking it….

S – And u made?

Me – A French red bean and veggie stew

S – What’s a French red bean?

Me – it’s a happy go lucky bean that enjoys beautiful art and fine wines…

Yep. Love my friends and the converstaions we have!

In fact, I liked my dinner so much, that I had it for breakfast today too! Okay, and I’m lazy, but that’s beside the point. Lunch was some BBQ tofu, and dinner was a quick salad and wine with AC after yoga.


Can I just tell you (because I’m glowing), that in the few short weeks I’ve been doing Crossfit, I’ve lost 6 inches. SIX.

With results like that, it was so hard not going today. However, last Wednesday I ran, did CF, and hot yoga, and was sore as hell the next two days. I stuck with my original plan, which was a run in the morning, and hot yoga in the evening.

Speaking of hot things (like that seguway???), it’s hot out. I was spoiled last week with unseasonably cool 70 degree weather. Delusioned, if you will, that I’m actually going to experience a mild VA summer. HA! My run this morning was 91 degrees (not counting the heat index), and I got to breathe in the lovely smoke from the NC wildfires at Croatan National Forest (currently 21,000 acres ablaze…funny how the news never mentions the ones out here….). Anyway, I digress…..it was a smack in the face back to reality with today’s run. Thankfully it was more successful than last night’s, where I was so beat, I did more brisk walking than I did running!

This morning I think I was slightly delerious, and the Buster Poindexter song popped in my head. I knew it was destined to be a blog title….

This evening was Yoga-Wine Wednesday. Another hot class, and this weeks felt harder than last weeks! Didn’t help that my shoulders are sore from CF and we held some pretty extensive down dog poses.


The only really fun news is that I finally ordered my camera! It should be here next week. I’m SO excited…so buckle up for way too many pictures of random things in the coming weeks.

Tomorrow is a work event at a baseball game. It’s going to be >100 degrees, so let’s just say I’m grateful for an air conditioned box, beer, and a rest day…

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.

    1. Thanks! I think I have. It’s always uncomfortable, and makes me push harder than I think I’m prone to do when left to my own devices. For that, I’m so grateful to the gym itself….I would not have pushed as hard if I were working on my own!
