Tomato-Gate (and some really Kinky Boots)

FOOD

I was home for the first part of the week, and did get to make a few dishes. My favorite was a quinoa salad with Beyond Meat chickn, fresh mint, and tomatoes from our garden!

And speaking of tomatoes….

We have several tomato plants from cherries to normal sized ones. They’re ripening quickly, and A picks them every day when she gets home from classes.

Well, on Sunday I was busy cleaning and studying, and cooking, and decided that the fresh tomatoes were a perfect snack. So I took the jar of cherry tomatoes out by the pool and ate them while I studied. A was displeased and our own little Tomato-Gate ensued.

I also had smoothies, green curry (shocker), salads, veggie dumplings, and a few other awesome eats.

FITNESS

Well, I got two runs in this week and some yoga at home. But, I made the mistake of doing a workout video – which was awesome. Until the next day where I could barely walk, and forget sitting and standing! Felt like I did 1000 squats!

Then I hit the road and have walked around Manhattan. Heading home today and looking forward to more runs and spin!

LIFE

Well, week one of #becomingamorningperson is done. It was largely ok. The past two days in NYC meant about 4-5 hrs of sleep each night so I’m exhausted, but otherwise it’s going fine. I am getting a lot more done in the mornings, and I can’t complain about that. It’s still not fun, but I don’t play snooze tag and do get rolling at 530 when my alarm goes off.

Kuma, however, is still not a fan.

Tuesday night went to dinner again with my guys family. Everyone but A because she was sleeping before working nights.

Wednesday was out on the water and having apps and cocktails at Waterside with friends. J is moving to MD in a couple weeks, so this was our last evening out. It was a perfect night too.

Then Thursday it was off to NYC. I arrived around 6pm and then met my friend for a late dinner and wine.

Friday was a day full of meetings – though very interesting. I went back to my room, got all my school work for the week done, and then met up with N for a cocktail and then to see Kinky Boots on Broadway! It was by far my favorite. I love the movie, and was so excited when the show came out. We stopped for a quick drink after the show, and then back to the hotel!

For now, I’m getting ready to board my flight home! Then it’s seeing the kids and then off to a concert!

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.
