Calm in My Chaos

FOOD

I’m sure you’d believe me when I tell you I can’t remember what I’ve eaten the past few days!  The reason is mostly due to a lack of a picture history 🙂

I can tell you that today I had a green smoothie for breakfast, tofu and veggie stewp for lunch, and a simple green salad for dinner.

spinach, coconut water, mixed frozen fruit, and a banana.

not soupy enough to be a soup, but it's quinoa, tofu, green beans, carrots, onion, garlic, and tomatoes in a spicy veggie broth.

I’m excited to do 3 days of juicing starting mid-week this coming week.  I can tell you true, that I need the reset, and am very much looking forward to it.  Too much command center crap and store bought salads lately!  I have a week before traveling for work ramps up again for a month, so it’s definitely good timing!

Additionally, I’m excited to say that my entire family is going to do the 13 day Happy Herbivore 3 day cleanse + 10 day reboot!  We’re starting Mother’s Day – which happens to be the day after I get home from my work trip and A gets home from her Freshman year in college!  Here’s a link to it if interested.

FITNESS

I finally got some yoga in today!  I haven’t used my YogaGlo account in a few weeks, so it was a nice way to get it in while staying at home!  I’ve gone on two runs and to two kickboxing sessions the past few days, and my upper body is SORE.  The last 9 Round workout involved lots of punching, burpees, and push ups.  Ouch.  In a good way, of course.

LIFE

Well, I’m excited to say that I had an entire weekend OFF!  No kidding, I did no work whatsoever!  It was quite nice.

And…I got a new phone!  After 7 years, I have left the iPhone family and jumped ship to a Window’s phone.  I guess it’s jumping back because that’s what I had before iPhone’s came out!  D has had one for a while now, and I was due for something new.  I honestly love it, and D has been having some phone envy 🙂

D went to DC for a photography weekend.  He left around lunch on Friday and is due home tonight around 1030 or so.  I’m excited to see what’s he come up with – our walls are in desperate need of some art!  Most importantly, he had a really great time, so I’m happy for that.  And he gets to see our eldest for dinner on his way home!

one of the pics D sent me this weekend.  He spent a lot of time at Arlington National Cemetery yesterday, and I thought this pic was kind of funny.  Seeing the two old men, clearly here to visit someone important to them - take a break to check their phones...cracks me up.

Friday night was pretty quiet, which was nice.  Saturday morning R’s friend came over, and I took the girls to Busch Garden’s for the day!  Her friend had only been once before, and she was 3 or so, so it was quite a treat.  Plenty of rides, sunshine, and fun.  They both fell asleep on the drive home.  N spent the night, and the girls played and goofed off all of last night and half of today.

My day today was spent mostly doing wash and getting things ready for the week.  I did some writing and binge watching of my new favorite show, Lost Girl.  First three seasons on Netflix if you’re interested!  It’s right up my alley, werewolves, vampires, and fae private detectives in a snarky crime/comedy thing.  Don’t judge…it’s a fun show, and I love finding something new.

This week looks to be a relatively stable one.  Only one planned late night, lots of catching up at work for it not being a go-live week, but still – should be pretty routine, which is nice!  So still, it was a busy weekend, but in the chaotic way that makes me feel relaxed.  That makes sense, right?

I love to cook, read, run, do yoga, 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.
