It’s Amazing the Plans Enough Wine Will Inspire


Well again, it'll be mostly a recap in photos. Juices, tofu pineapple stir fry (that D loved so much, he ate it two days in a row!), panera sammich, hot chcolate, Mexican quinoa bowl, cauliflower soup, veggie chili, baked oatmeal, and wine.

Today I'm making some Mexican flavored tofu for the week plus some falafel-ish chickpea burgers.

One thing that's awesome about my juicer – is I have far less wasted produce. If it looks like something only will last another day or two – I juice it! I've had two juices this week that yielded over 24 ounces just by cleaning out the fridge!


I got in all but one of my runs this week. I still got workouts in (DVD one day, and yoga the others), so I'm not stressing it.

The group run this week was canceled due to a local race (that I did not do), but that's okay.

This week I plan to take my bike in for a tune up, dust off my trainer, and start doing some indoor cycling. I'm seriously toying with the idea of doing a Tri or two in late Spring/Summer. I can't express how awesome it feels to feel good again – to not have pain with movement except when it's because it's a muscle I haven't used in a long time. I'm not dumb enough to think it'll be all the time, but I am hopeful that it'll be most of the time.


It's been another nutty week. Late nights, early mornings, and very little rest or sleep. Again – not BAD, just incredibly hectic.

R missed swim all week. She was sick early last weekend, and has had a persistent cough the entire week. It's finally starting to get better, but not enough to allow her to swim all week. I feel bad because she missed a swim meet this weekend – and she REALLY wanted to go since it was against her old swim team.

Friday was our work Christmas party, which was nice. The only downside is there's actually a big smoking area where we had it – and where most people were – so I stunk to high heaven when I left as well as had a bit of a sore throat. I got home, took a shower, and went to bed. I was fine by morning, as I sort of assumed I would be.

Saturday night was girls vegan drinks night! I met KP and NS in the vegan meet up group over a year ago, and we finally realized we can hang out even if it's not a meet up event! So, last night we went to Bardo's and drank much wine, ate yummy food, planned a girls trip to New Orleans in the spring, sketched out some business ideas, and planned a sleep over next weekend. Yeah, good times 🙂

Today I pretty much stayed in bed until 115. IT WAS AWESOME. My dad called around 11 ish, and woke us all up. He felt bad – though he shouldn't. There was no logical reason to think an entire family of 4 would still be asleep that late – but it was still amazing. I woke up, ate some leftover chili, and then crawled back into bed to watch Netflix and read.

OH. Speaking of Netflix….I have a new favorite TV show. Arrow! The first season is on Netflix, and I was hooked in the first 5 minutes. So amazing. I've watched 4 since Saturday, and I'm going to be so sad when I run out. It's that good and you should watch it. D had read a spot on review – it's everything Agents of Shield should be. It's not that I don't like the Marvel show – but it's campy and not always my first choice of something to watch.

as much as Bumble seems to dislike the little beasts, she certainly plays more. In this picture, all I imagine going through her little cat brains is “back off bitches…this is mine!”.

Okay, my falafel-ish burgers are done, and it's dinner time! Here's hoping my first attempt at a homemade veggie burger doesn't suck!

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.
