another week

so a week has quickly gone by. all in all, i have to say it was a good week. it is hot though. yuck!

a quick recap......... we ate pretty well.

we had a super yummy red cabbage, jicama, mint salad. it has kind of an asian zing to it.

we had sausage and spinach. we did go out with my brother one night, but it was a japanese/sushi place......... so, we'll consider it a lesser of the evils. i don't want to bore you with just a menu play by play.

the biggest temptation of the week is yummy, blended coffee drinks (......forgive me pirate coffee, but for a simple example....... think frappuccino). boy drinks iced coffee with a little cream. it's just so bitter to me........ an acquired taste......... i'm working on it. so, slowly weaning myself from the sugary sweet yummy-ness ... i got an iced coffee, with cream, and one shot of hazelnut and one shot of toffee. that' the current compromise.

on friday afternoons we eat lunch at a local bar-b-que place. we get the jalapeno sausage, brisket and broccoli. oh man. so de-lish! then, we go hang out at pirate coffee. it was friday. we went all out.... yummy scallywags for both of us (that's their "frappuccino") and chocolate treats. but, we both paid for it!!! upset tummy's!!! ew. so that's what we get for a sugar, carb, grain overload.

we also started a four week yoga series this week. it's on tuesdays and thursdays. baron baptiste style.....  it's a 75 min class in a 90 degree room. i haven't done yoga in about a year and boy has only done a handful of classes, period. it was good. it felt good. the heat lets you stretch just a little more. i slept like a rock on tuesday. and thursday.

funny story............. we went for a walk around the neighborhood (suburbia, by the way) around 7 am a few days ago. barefoot. just a 20 min walk. another neighbor was out running. i said, "maybe he's barefoot too." boy said, "we'd be best friends." ....... go on........ guess.......... he was totally barefoot. awesome. boy did not talk to him and become best friends. maybe next time though.

like i said, all in all a good week. we followed a primal eating pretty well. let's say 70% maybe a smidge better than that. and started to move a little.......... we have big plans, but we are easing into things. i would like to have moved more this week (we talked about doing sprints one day, but alas.... it didn't happen). but, here we are facing a new week. new decisions. new opportunities.

i'll leave with you this (from curly girl)............

happy sunday,
vibram girl.
