Racing, Family Fun, and Playing Card Games for Horrible People

FOOD

Last week was totally chaotic, and I didn’t take many food pics at all.  Most of the week’s foods were smoothies, salads, and juices – so pretty much the usual.

FITNESS

This past weekend was Shamrock race weekend, and I did the 8K on Saturday.  It was a beautiful day for a run, and I enjoyed it along with 10,000 other’s!  I felt sorry for the full and 1/2 marathoners on Sunday – their weather pretty much stunk.

Other than the race, I’ve had a few other runs in the past week, yoga, and some strength training.  Also, a fairly typical week.

LIFE

Well, it never slows down, does it?  Work is getting crazier than normal – we’re less than two weeks away from our first go-live.  And then we have them almost every other week until July!  No rest for the wicked….

It was also University Spring Break so A was home!  That meant getting as much family time as possible.

On Tuesday, D and I went to a local pub with some friends and played this hilarious game called Cards Against Humanity.  To put it bluntly – cards are passed out and the goal is to come up with the most insulting and funny response possible.  It was a really fun evening.

After my race on Saturday, we all went to Busch Gardens for pass holders appreciation day (the park opens a day early for season pass members – which we are).  From there, D and A went off to her university and R, M, and I went home.

Yesterday I had brunch with AC, went grocery shopping, and spent the day prepping fruits and veggies for the week.

I am a 43 yo busy career single mom, attempting to find her inner athlete, be a gluten-free & nut-free 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.

  1. Yes!!! I knew from the title of your post that you had to be talking about Cards Against Humanity! I’m one of the most inappropriate people to ever walk to earth so I love this game so much haha! Your meals look delicious, especially that salad from Moe’s and the Sangria! Yum!

    1. I think we get the same weather about 12 hrs apart! I’ll be very glad when winter is over. And yes – I’m lucky the 8K was beautiful! And thank you – he always takes selfies of us – and I hate getting my picture taken!
