Beer, Trivia, and Legolas’ Awesome Cheekbones

FOOD

Part of the fun of bulk cooking on Sunday’s is it makes my weekday lunch life much easier.  The down side is it’s all the same, so taking pics is kind of redundant.

Nevertheless, soup and salads are pretty much always my favorite go-to lunches, and that was definitely this week.

Had my typical smoothies for breakfast most mornings, watermelon with my lunches (and R’s because it’s her fav too), and whipped up a batch of spicy tofu soup on a rainy Friday night.

This morning breakfast was an old fav – gluten-free toast, sunflower seed butter, banana, and a little agave.  Perfect before I lace up for a wet run in a few!

FITNESS

Same as last time – hot yoga and runs!  I try to alter every other day, but that’s not always possible.  Either way, it’s about 6x per week, and that’s perfect.

As soon as I’m done here, I’ll be lacing up for a wet run.  Hoping the rain stays light – but if it doesn’t, I know my pace will kick up!

need to remember to use eye makeup remover BEFORE hot yoga! Still – not supposed to look cute when working out, right?

LIFE

Been another busy but fun-filled week.  Work seemed full of one crisis after another, but nothing that couldn’t be conquered.

Found out I had poison ivy!  The prednisone has been fun (not), but I’m still grateful for it.

AM and I got together a few times this week.  One for drinks at the Young Veteran’s Brewery in Virginia Beach, and one at Benchtop Brewery for beer and trivia night.  One of those was supposed to be a run date, but hard to pass up beer and trivia 🙂

The H Hour Sour at Young Veterans was the bomb! Bought some to take home And since I’m a vet, I got a discount. How groovy is that? 
Benchtop build your own flight. I stuck with the second from the right – a beet based mildly sour beer called the Fall of Dimitri (or something like that).

trivia fun!

After yoga last night, it was dinner and then watching Lord of the Rings with R.  At one point she freaked out when I told her Orlando Bloom (Legolas) was not blonde.  Showed her a picture – she completely freaked out, and then proceeded to tell me that “at least he still has those amazing cheekbones”.  Seriously?  What the hell?!  #teamlegolas

Other fun shots to wrap up with!

me and JG – one of the most amazing peaches ever!
R and I are hitting up the library a lot lately. Single mom finances 🙂 Enjoying it a lot though. I forgot how magical a library can be.
playtime with Kuma before work
M visited me during my coffee ritual yesterday. He works late and sleeps late, but had a 530 am road trip this morning to Canada with a bunch of his friends and he was trying to flip his sleep schedule
Kuma hates mornings. That’s my girl!
had to pick up java at 7-11 this morning

dogs and fire hydrants. It’s a thing.

The rest of today should be pretty groovy.  Meeting up for lunch at noon with a friend, and then having more friends over tonight for dinner.  It was supposed to be the “teach Crissie to grill” adventure from my friend’s hubby, but it’s pouring so we’re turning it into a taco party instead.  I mean seriously – you can’t trust someone who doesn’t like tacos….

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.
