Oreogate

FOOD

Oddly, not many food pics.

Before my flight on Monday, my guy and I went out to lunch at a new to us place. Burger and bourbon joint, but has the Beyond Burger. Was a little hole in the wall near the oceanfront area. Nice to try, but not a place we’re likely to go again. Food was okay, but not awesome. Didn’t even get a pic.

While in Chicago, the catering company did their best, and breakfast was yummy. Lunch was never vegan, but I had two great dinners – one Italian with the work crew and one Italian with my sister and her fam!

Last Friday was a ramen lunch date with my guy.

Saturday afternoon was Pho and dinner was Chinese. My guys fav Chinese restaurant now has a dedicated vegan menu, and I had the pineapple tofu teriyaki and it was amazing! That was also my dinner on Sunday.

Sunday was a family brunch, and I had my sorbet mimosas (with coconut rum of course!) and the hummus lettuce wraps.

Monday I stopped for Thai and got fresh rolls and Tom Kha Tofu soup before a meeting. No dinner.

Lunch today was edamame and veg sushi (broccoli and sweet potato).

FITNESS

Mostly runs, but also the gym yesterday and today for my HIIT class. Yesterday was very intense and I loved it. HR monitor says just over 700 calories burned in an hour. Yes please! Today I was pretty exhausted (only 2 hrs of sleep last night), so I was NOT feeling it. Did it anyway though, so there’s that.

LIFE

Another good and busy week. Chicago meetings were great. They really are my fav group of people. Old Fashions and Manhattans were had!

Wednesday the meetings ended at 1pm, and I went up to Milwaukee to first visit my mom and then see my sister on her 50th birthday! It was great to see them all. It was snowing by the time I got back to my hotel in Chicago, which caused some flight delays on Thursday morning, but nothing major. Still home in plenty of time.

Thursday afternoon I dropped off a library book and picked up R. We were supposed to have a private tour of a new robotics facility in our area – but there were wicked storms and we had to reschedule. So we stopped at Moe’s. Main power was out, but they still had emergency power, so it was kinda fun. She was still hungry after eating, so she went back through the line. Apparently got chatting with people and was offered a job. So – my 16 y/o now has a job and starts next Sunday!

On Friday, I’m back in the office, and this thread happens with my children. See – Monday before my afternoon flight, I went to the grocery store to ensure plenty of food and lunch snacks….Oreogate ensued.

Saturday morning R had a hair appt. I sat in the Starbucks next door with a soy latte and a book!

Saturday evening was at my guys house. We normally stay in on Saturday’s, but the boys had plans, so we went out for Chinese. And then watched the single most intense basketball game I have ever seen (Duke vs UNC). Sunday was fam brunch where, among other things, my eldest daughter and my boyfriend did a breakfast shot. Then I bought many, many Oreos.

Yesterday morning R had a Dr’s appt and then I had meetings at a coffee shop in Norfolk that an acquaintance of mine owns. It was 1pm, so tea for me. But it was a great time. Then gym, then home.

Today I was in the office really early because I had to leave early for a derm appt to make sure the skin cancer scar is healing well – and it is. Did provide an opportunity for coffee with the guy though, so that was nice.

Or any clinical job. I was crazy (ED) and then dead people…

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.
