Rest day Friday!

I had a wonderful rest day today… the sun was shining and I had a wonderful surprise – Katheryn is coming home tonight! It wasn’t so much a SURPRISE as she told us the other day, but still, it is a good thing. She called at 6:00 saying she left and when I asked her …

Feeling it!

I was happy today was an easy day… some elliptical and stretching. Well, in Core Performance speak today is called “regeneration”. Lots of stretching, foam rolling and trigger point therapy. The foam roller really doesn’t get any easier – it still hurts, especially on the IT band. I guess that means I need it there! …

Hyper Tuesday

Besides the fact that it was CRAZY busy at work today I was also CRAZY hyper. I felt like I had 14 lattes today but I only had my one cup of coffee in the morning. I actually felt wired! We had an excellent run at lunch. Sue, Jaime and I did out track work; …

Delicious day!

I am finally happy with the recipes that I made for today. Like I said, I cooked a lot this weekend but after last night’s grilled veggies I was worried about my new found vegan lifestyle. I thought I was destined to have bland vegetables the rest of my life. Thankfully I have a wonderful …

Another weekend over

Why do these weekends go by so quickly? I really would like a few more days off… I wish I could call in sick! The weekend was relaxing and productive. Saturday started out with a nice 4 mile run around Warrior Loop with the Tryon Running Club. We had two new people show up this …

A whole vegan day

Today I didn’t have one ounce animal product – it is my first completely vegan day – all the other days I at least had a bit of cheese. I didn’t miss it at all. I will not be giving up cheese, but I am finding it easier and easier not to eat meat. It …

Miscalculated

Rarely am I fooled by labels. I know what I am looking for and packaging cannot fool me. I am on to one of my favorite places, Jimmy John’s and their little bags of chips that are really two servings… all those places try to fool us, but they can’t get me. That is until …

Food

I forgot to mention some of the lovely food I had this weekend. I even have some pictures (if my stupid computer doesn’t crash while I load them). My lunch time salad on Friday was a delicious salad with fresh greens, quinoa, homemade tahini dressing and saracha sauce. Friday night is pizza night. I spend …

Random weekend

I had a very random weekend. I had no real plans other than to exercise and to buy food. It was a beautiful weekend so I was torn about what to do. I really wanted to go to Whole Foods but I hate Greenville and didn’t want to waste a beautiful day down there. Saturday …
