Hi there! I've missed this little space of the interwebs. Forgive the worn out excuse, but life has been busy of late. In reality, life itself hasn't been preoccupied, but the mind that sorts through all the life stuff has been busy. I haven't felt able to put together a coherent post, so I'm taking … Continue reading Bye for a little while.
Hi you! I'm excited to share with you a few amazing meals from the past few days.

It's that time again. Time for reflection, celebrating the minute (but still important) accomplishments, and getting ready for the coming week by looking back on what the past week held. Thanks for hosting, Meg!Keeping with last week's theme, movement was gentle. I did get to take a few lovely walks in the evening. On one … Continue reading Avocados on sale, new books, and other pleasant distractions.
Last week was free of structured workouts, meaning no running or HIIT circuits. I did take advantage of a free pass to a local fitness studio and lucked out with an awesome yoga instructor who took us through a vinyasa flow. She also taught me how to do a headstand with proper form. (Apparently kicking … Continue reading What happened when I didn’t exercise for a week.
