Sit. Stay.


I swear, it’s going to get boring if I’m only eating OMAD (one meal a day), but it is what it is.

Today I ended up fasting for just over 24 hours. Crazy! Not intentional, but just wasn’t hungry. IF is interesting for a few reasons, one of which is being able to identify when actually hungry versus just a time of day you tend to eat.

I made a spicy coconut soup and had it with a side of slaw and the seed bread. Going to be honest with you – NOT a fan of the seed bread. Ate half the piece (toasted with Earth Balance) and then tossed it. Liked the rest though!

It is really pretty. Had such high hopes. Alas…


Today was a run day. Went out for 3 miles and overall just felt great.

For his birthday, I got my friend a HR monitor (he’s been working out a lot too). We have started sending each other screen shots of our workouts. It’s fun and motivating at the same time.

I was so excited about my TRX workout yesterday – courtesy of my gym – I of course posted about it on Instagram and Twitter. I was pleased today when they replied!


First of all – I slept GREAT last night. I do hope the nights of crappy sleep are behind me, but if not, I’m happy to have had a really good night.

I realized today what my wardrobe changes consist of. I wake – pajamas. I change into workout clothes and workout. I shower and put on yoga clothes – though I may or may not do yoga. It’s okay though, not at all sorry!

Slept in until 830. Woke, fed fluffs, had coffee, read the news, and then went for a run. Then it was shower, laundry, lunch, and then time to sit at my computer.

I knew today was going to be a work day, and it was, though I didn’t start until after lunch. Just wrapped up actually (7pm ish). Not an overly exciting day in the sense of doing a lot of stuff, but it was still a really good day nonetheless.

This coming week I assume will be as chaotic as this past week, but that’s okay. I certainly don’t mind as I find the work very meaningful.

At the same time though – help us help you. Stay home. Stay safe. Stay healthy. And we can come through this as a better people.

For all my Game of Thrones fans!

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.
