Hola! How’s it goin’ friends?
Yesterday was finally a productive day. The to-do list got to-done all the while the day remained relaxed.
Reason #gazillion why I love having a nonstandard work week:
At approximately 1:00 yesterday afternoon, I stood in my kitchen and relaxingly sliced an heirloom tomato to place on a sandwich.
This doesn’t happen at a 9-5 job! At a 9-5 job, I’d take my lunch out of my lunch pack, and either throw it in the microwave, or eat it cold.
Nevermind the fact that today that’s exactly what I’ll be doing. Yesterday, it wasn’t.
An or-ange heirloom tomato + avocado + balsamic reduction + raw sharp cheddar on a multigrain Arnold Sandwich thin.
Plus salsa + Blue Hot chips and cantaloupe + balsamic reduction
I love taking the time to make a meal in the middle of the day – even if it’s as simple as a tomato sandwich
Before training a client yesterday evening, I had the pleasure of meeting Lindsay, another local blogger here in Bloomington/Normal. Lindsay and I have talked for quite some time now, and even ran into each other at the grocery store, but haven’t really officially “met” until yesterday! We had plans of meeting on the trail for a run, but about a half hour before meeting, it started to rain. So we met at the gym instead!
Today was an easy run day, so I ran about 3.5 miles with an average pace of about 9:30.
Lindsay ran alongside me, and mentioned it’d been quite some time since she’d run as long as she had, since she’s been focusing on classes more instead. It was a great workout for us both! Lindsay was super sweet, and we chatted the entire time and it just flew by!
After our run, Lindsay handed me a bright green bag:
and some cookies that are basically melt-in-your-mouth delicious:
Can’t wait to meet up for our next run, Lindsay!
Off to work, work, work. My workday today consists of the hours 7:00 a.m. – 9:00 p.m. Ay, ay, ay. The husband mentioned he thinks I should take a break from taking on any new clients until I have a couple drop off. I think he may be right!
Which fellow bloggers do you know of where you live, if any? I’ve only met Lindsay here in town, but there’s also a couple others who live in the area! And then there’s of course my Chicago Crew of bloggers
Cop out, completely unrelated question: Any tips for brushing a dog or cat’s teeth?!
I took Niko to the vet the other day and the vet recommended starting tooth-care now. So I bought a crap ton of supplies and some really fun kid-sized brushes. But all Niko did was twisted and turned and convulsed until I threw in the towel.
