Has Anyone Seen My Lung?

Good grief, nearly 2 weeks! Surprise BS hasn’t admonished me lately….as an FYI, I was sick, so there wasn’t much to chat about!

FOOD

Lots of smoothies – pretty much every day. Including the one I’m drinking now 🙂

Salads, Thai, Ramen, wraps, and risottos. Also had my kids plus my guy and his over for dinner last weekend. Zoodles, beyond beef crumbles, and marinara was amazing! Also made a huge batch of Jambalaya from the Forks Over Knives cookbook. One note about it – recipes are scaled to feed crowds – so for the first time, I actually couldn’t get through all the leftovers!

Fun drink! Called the Just Beet it Gimlet! Beet juice, gin, and lime!

FITNESS

The first week I was home I had a cold. Literally the morning after landing from Orlando. Since it was upper respiratory and sinus related, it pretty much ruled out any workouts.

This week though, I feel fine and hit up Regymen again. Thought I was going to die at one point (still had a mild cough and I may have left a lung at the gym). Also my bike in the garage while watching my iPad!

And as always, worked in yoga several days.

LIFE

Well, the cold was a pain in the butt to be honest. I have no time to be sick! Fortunately with the neti pot and rest, it went away.

I had an IBM thing the first day I started feeling human again. I’d have worked from home if not for having to present. But it was a really great time and they hosted an event that evening with drinks and apps. Best thing about that day? As I was getting ready to start talking, I noticed a woman in the room that I knew. She was the first CIO I ever had back in Milwaukee! Literally the woman who plucked me out of working clinically in the hospital and gave me my first IT job. I mentioned it before I started my part of the discussion. My CMO (who I was there with), actually walked over to her to shake her hand and thank her for putting me on this career path. It was really humbling when she gave me a hug at the end, and we spent some time catching up at the evening festivities. Definitely a highlight of the past two weeks.

There was a weekend trip last weekend that was literally the best 24 hrs I can think of ever.

At the Portrait Gallery – sent this to my daughter the nursing student!

I took my son and his girlfriend to a wine tasting event this past Wednesday, which was nice, and my guy and I went out last night to one of our fav spots.

This weekend involves another whirlwind trip that I guess I should go get ready for!

So I was struggling warming up one evening and decided to take a bath. Of course I ended up with visitors….

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.
