getting back in the swing of things
yesterday, it was all i could muster just to unpack. today = preparation to re-enter the real world! the to-do list is long, but i am armed with post-vacay energy and initiative.

on the docket
☑ a scary amount of laundry
☑ deep-cleaning of kitchen
☑ vacuuming
☑ shopping list
☑ restocking of fridge (yay!)
☑ sorting/emptying email inboxes

already done
✔ 6 mile run in these conditions:


full report tomorrow, but let’s just say that i have some work to do! i will try to be patient, however.

summer shape-up report
as promised, i dove into gina‘s summer workout plan yesterday! i made use of my only st. maarten souvenir:


french stationery . . . from the grocery store. i still can’t get over it!

details, straight from the source:


i kept the weights on the lower side, focusing on technique. my method was to do the weights in supersets: moves 1 + 2 alternated x 3, then 3 + 4, then 5 + 6, then 7 + 8. this way i didn’t have to move all over the gym floor but avoided having to stop to rest since different muscle groups were being targeted.

my shoulders and arms are sore today, so i will consider this first attempt a success!

clean eating cookthrough
this week’s plans. as if this post needed another list . . .

tonight: trout with green bean succotash
monday: inside-out cheese sliders
tuesday: noodles + tofu in basil with mint dressing
wednesday: scallops with greek relish
thursday: leftovers!

one sad thing about this new cooking project is that the recipes are NOT online — so there are no links to post! however, i have read that recipes/ingredient combinations themselves are not copyright protected — just the text that goes along with them. so, i may rewrite some of the recipes here if anyone is interested. thoughts?
