I’m large and in charge!
Vegas is out of town – watch out.
That’s right. I’m without supervision this week. Not just because Vegas is gone though – I’m also hosting Jen’s What I Ate Wednesday!
And I made myself bacon.
I lost Vegas.
Not literally, thank god.
We’ve been doing a little 21 day reset. Vegas said she’d give it a week and then see if she wanted to keep going. She lasted a week like a champion… but then I lost her.
Actually, we both went a little off the reservation Saturday night. I got back on track Sunday, but Vegas was done. She’s still been basically eating whatever I eat… just with a side of caffeine and peanut M&Ms. She had no complaints about the protein pancakes we had for breakfast (more on that below).
All good things must come to an end.
Until I figure out a way to live in Europe.
I’m a firm believer in balance and enjoying life. Enjoying is just what we did in Greece. There were tons of good eats, alllll the drinks, and a nice break from the gym (though we walked a LOT). Vegas and I had a blast and soaked up every moment. Coming off of that I have no regrets, but feel ready to get back to a healthier diet.
Two bloggers go food shopping…
I can’t even narrow down the punchlines.
Lucie and I had a food shopping adventure to the Pacific Beach Farmer’s Market and then to Whole Foods. We were actually quite well-behaved! Even between the two of us we spent less than $100* in Whole
*That’s unheard of for me – just ask Vegas.
My idea of heaven is getting paid to workout.
And to eat… errrr… cook.
Several months ago I earned personal training certificates through the International Association of Fitness Sciences (IAFS) in Functional Training, Bodybuilding, and Sports Nutrition. This is 8x Mr. Olympia Lee Haney‘s program (he’s basically my version of a movie star).
I wasn’t sure how or if I’d use it… I ended up training a couple of friends and deciding it’s something I really did love. So I added a link on my site for training and nutrition. Between getting married and moving, I never did much to promote it. Now that we’re settled, the time has come!
I always look forward to spring.
Except the pollen. Who knew San Diego had pollen?!
Spring food is the best. Don’t get me wrong, I love a roasted winter squash and the orange glow that comes with it. The lighter, fresh spring fare has my heart though.
Today’s #strangebutgood is a round up of some of my favorite spring recipes. Some stranger than others. All good.
In my not-so-humble opinion.
I spoke too soon.
One day I’ll learn to knock on wood or something.
Last week I said we were getting to some form of normalcy. HA! Till the flaming oven happened… so here we are with a disheveled kitchen, no oven, and some random food. We also have NO groceries since we were supposed to have gone to the farmer’s market Sunday. Fires really are inconvenient…
We’re finally getting some normalcy post-move.
The term “normal” is used loosely for us.
The boxes are slowly disappearing. Things have places on shelves. There are curtains in the bedroom and dining room (the other rooms are another story). We joined a gym… I joined a second gym. We have groceries and are eating at home *almost* each week day. And we have
redneck Christmas lights strung up on the cabana.
Route 66 is known for strange.
I think we added to it.
Today Vegas and I are in Vegas. Then it’s off to our new home in San Diego! I can’t believe how fast the trip went by. It was so much fun to drive across the US seeing all the #strangebutgood sights.
Hopefully we’ll be getting settled in our place next week and things will return to “normal” here… but for now, here’s a bit of what’s been going down the hatch on Route 66.
We picked up an additional passenger.
He was begging to jump in the car with two women.
