Monday Funday!

FOOD

Real simple eats today, but that’s usually the case on weekdays. Breakfast was oatmeal with banana and pumpkin pie spice. Haven’t been much in a smoothie mood.

I had a meeting over lunch and we went to YNot pizza. I LOVE their chopped salads! This is romaine, chickpeas, corn, peas, beets, red onion, and mandarin orange slices with a sesame ginger dressing. I ate half and took the other half home.

Dinner was a cream of carrot and coconut soup. Been making this for ages – onion, garlic, and ginger sautéed in coconut oil. Add broth and a ton of carrots and cook (covered) until tender. Blend. Add a can of light coconut milk and 1tsp salt. Pepper to taste. It makes about 2 quarts, so I have plenty for the week.

FITNESS

This morning was another Regymen Burn class. This one flew by because we did 4 rounds at 3 stations. Each round was less time than the previous, so you never had the chance to dwell on anything sucking too badly (though the Air Bike and I are NOT friends today). At least there were no burpees….

LIFE

I worked from home today. Mainly because my one meeting was close to my house and no where near the office. It also gave me a lot of time to focus on work stuff. Also got my workout in, which is important.

Weather has been crazy. It was pretty decent the latter part of last week and the weekend. Not even too terrible this morning, but temps really dropped this afternoon. I know it’s nothing compared to what the Midwest and much of the country will be experiencing this week, but for us, it’s cold. Okay for ME, it’s cold. I hate cold. Good thing in less then 2 weeks I’ll be in Florida! Yes, it’s for work, but it’ll still be warmer than it is here.

Fireplace Puppy
Where I grew up! Obviously I skip the cheese. I’d skip the snow and cold too.

Evening is cleaning up after dinner, laundry, and studying (financial ratios – of which I’m actually a fan).

I am a 45 yo busy career single mom and doctoral student 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.
