is this thing on?

June 18, 2011

not a single post . . .
and yet another week has gone by. amazing how that works!

all kidding aside, i really did miss this daily ritual. i am incredibly thankful to the many of you who left me words of support during my [albeit brief] absence. and also?

I’M BACK, BABY. raise your [caffeinated] glass!
truthfully, i don’t have much to update you all on regarding the past 7 days. let’s see . . .

✔ my hair is straighter [thanks, joey!]
✔ i didn’t cook a single thing all week
✔ i slept a solid 8 hours most nights, thanks to a well-behaved pager
✔ i ordered a new planner [what? the medical academic year begins in july!]
✔ i’m trying a new hormonal strategy this month
✔ i didn’t truly do a media cleanse, but i did stay away from facebook
✔ i started lifting weights again after a several-week hiatus [ouch]
✔ i have a new desk!

do not for a moment think that this means our apartment is in any state of completeness
and that pretty much catches you up to now.

✰ . . .and planning out the day

still to come
retreat posts to resume monday!

♥ an update on my 10 in 100 summer goals, and perhaps a few new intentions for the second half of this year

♥ apartment tour: where we are now

and now, i’m off to walk to the farmer’s market [followed by a trip to work to do a consult]. thank you all again for your comments, emails and support over the past week — it really does mean a lot to me.

now catch me up: what was the highlight of your week? did i miss anything?!



workout: still happening. my current routine is something like:

monday: 20 minutes elliptical + weights
tuesday: run to and around east campus [slow, and under 30 minutes = josh approves]
wednesday: yoga
thursday: run [same as tuesday]
friday: 20 minutes elliptical + weights
saturday: yoga
sunday: run [again, 30 minutes or less]

i can’t wait to get back to my beloved yoga studio after a rather long hiatus [moving, then car issues, then on call], but other than that, the above will be my basic blueprint for the time being.

cooking: SO ready to start doing this again. i miss both the act of preparing food AND eating my own cuisine! i finally ordered heidi swanson’s beautiful book, and i can’t wait to dive in:

i think i may feel another cook-through project coming on . . .
