Not to bore you with 2 1/2 weeks of eats, it’s been typical fare for me. Lot’s of smoothies, salads, soups, stir-fry’s, and bowls!
As the weeks have gone by, the 21 Day Fix method has really been great. It keeps me focused on the whole foods, which, with my busy schedule, often get forgotten!
Here’s a few shots of some fav meals. (You’ll see a Shakeology blender ball -> as an FYI, I don’t use the product, I’m allergic. I do know many who do though, and are very happy with it).
Good thing is I’ve kept very busy the past few weeks! Between runs, yoga, DVD’s, and streaming workouts, I’ve been trying to keep at it 5-6 days per week.
And since I’m sure you’re dying to see sweaty pics of me….
After work on Wednesday, D and I were hanging out on the couch and catching up. Bumble was smushed between us, purring loudly. I then declared that she was “happy as a clam”, and then “that’s a stupid phrase…it should be happy as a cat”. Upon which time D informed me that clams aren’t inherently happy, it’s just an expression because it looks like they’re smiling. To which I realized I had no idea that was the origin of the saying. So there you have it. These poor clams are NOT, in fact, inherently joyful.
Clearly, it’s been nuts. Our Term 2 grades came out, and I’m quite happy with mine, so that’s a big relief. Of course Term 3 started right away, and so I’m buried there. Much more reading this term than the past two.
Work has also been wild. We have a major project go-live in one week, so it’s been a full court press in the office. I also have several other projects going on, so there’s never a dull moment. Which is good – informed my boss 11 years ago that I hate to be bored and she’s made damned sure I haven’t been!
Exciting news! R got her braces off this week! She has her retainers that she has to wear all the time for 8 weeks (other than eating), and then at night for as long as she wants straight teeth. Truth is – she’s gorgeous. And looks WAY too grown up.
Since I study when I’m not working, I’ve had my fluffy study buddy to keep me “company” (aka, get in the way)…
And other random fun pics and morning pictures!
