A Jingle Ball to the Face

FOOD

Breakfast yesterday was a stuffed pepper, which was awesome.

Lunch was just some fruit, and then dinner was some tofu green curry.

Today was smoothies for breakfast and lunch.  Not planned, but just sort of happened that way!

coconut water, clementines, kale, strawberries, and raspberries
lunch veggies smoothie! Tomato, carrot, kale, cucumber, bell pepper, & celery

Dinner was a simple dish thrown together.

gluten free pasta, corn, peas, Gardein chicken, and that creamy pesto I made the other day

 

FITNESS 

Friday I didn’t work out, but today I hit up my first hot yoga class in months!  It honestly was exactly what my mind, body, and spirit needed.

I do yoga on a regular basis at home, but there’s something very magical about a classroom environment.  I’m hoping to make more time to do so.

Hot yoga leaves me simultaneously feeling like I can kick ass/take over the world, but with a clear head and peaceful heart.

not cute, but you’re not supposed to look cute after working your butt off! I am peaceful though 🙂

LIFE

No one slept well Thursday night due to the heat.  M slept outside on the back porch!  Needless to say, I was really hoping the AC guy would show up closer to the early part of his 8-1 window!

I worked from home to be on deck, but had conference calls all morning.  It was good for me though, because it made the time pass quickly!

None of the fluff balls were handling it well either.  I had pet friendly hotels on standby if the AC couldn’t be fixed.

Ginny stayed parked on a wet pool towel in my bathroom to keep cool

AC technician showed up at 12:50 pm and had everything fixed by 1!  It was just in time too, as R and I had to boogie to her OIT updose appointment!

It went well!  Which is awesome because this was the dose level she had back in early April that she didn’t take so well, and we not only took a major down dose, but have restarted more slowly.  Slow and steady wins the race!

After the doctor we hit up the library to load up on good reads and then went home.

Temps came down slowly but surely!  We all slept well last night 🙂

Today I actually slept in (8am), but not until after Ginny woke me up at 630 with a jingle ball to the face.  You know – one of those small plastic balls with a bell in it.  Perfect for cats who want to get you out of bed, so they play with them when you sleep?  Yeah.  That kind.  I ignored her playing with them, so she jumped on the bed and dropped it on me.  Brat cat.

super hot day, but I have AC, a pool, and a book! Only decision I had to make today was to go for a run or to yoga 😉

But, all that aside, all the fluff balls got their spunk back when the house temps went down, so I can’t really complain about a ball to the face if it means Ginny feels playful again.

And I will never take AC for granted again!

cool enough to sleep on a blanket!

I am a 44 yo busy career single mom, 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.
