Please Don’t Make It Weird

FOOD

I’ll be honest, for the past week and a half or so, I haven’t had much of an appetite, so most of my eats have been boring, or I’ll have something and only eat a little bit of it. Oh well. Not like I’m going to starve or anything!

The past few days have been smoothies, tea, spicy tofu soup, popcorn, tofu eggless salad, Thai one day, and stir fry on a lunch date.

FITNESS

Went to the gym every day this week – more of that HIIT class I’m digging. It always starts out on the rower and then the weighted ropes – though what you do with them changes from day to day. Some days it’s alternating arms, some it’s both arms, some there’s a squat or jumping jack in between. Basically there are 15 stations, and you spend 3 minutes at each. Depending on the focus (like today was shoulders and back), the exercises vary, though there’s always some rowing and elliptical/glider thingy. The time flies, and I really like that about it. And it torches a ton – 400-600 calories each workout. Can’t complain about that!

Also got a long run in. Been stressed a lot lately – this is helping tremendously!

LIFE

Relatively quiet week. I didn’t go to NY, but still did those meetings, just remotely. R was out of school half the week. Her fever finally broke, and while she’s still coughing and feeling a bit run down, she’s light years better than she was. She missed her orchestra concert on Tuesday – which really crushed her – but she couldn’t go. Not only because of school policy, but she honestly just wouldn’t have had the stamina.

I was on my way home from the gym and sent the kids a text to walk the dog. The following ensued. M was playing a league of legends match, and A, well, apparently she had no pants…

I got a new sign for the front door. We did have one of those stickers from Home Depot, but it blew away (to be fair, I never stuck it on anything – just taped it).

Today was a productive and lazy day. Had to exchange something at the store, I worked out and showered, wrapped presents, baked a loaf of bread, washed the “pneumonia blankets” (aka, the ones R snuggled up under while she was sick), meditated, read, worked, but mostly feel like I did very little. Strange.

Tomorrow is back to the office though! Not sad about that, actually.

For my fellow French speakers. I try to watch something on Netflix or read something in French fairly regularly (though not regularly enough) just to keep the skill up. Saw this and about fell over laughing.

Floof snuggling while I read this evening.

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.
