Business as Usual

It’s been a while since I’ve talked about my meals and workouts. Mostly because I don’t think anyone cares. But my life is pretty boring, so without lots of chatting around pictures of bacon ‘n’ eggs and the obligatory “running shoes standing outside” to emphasize a run, I don’t have much to talk about.

“Lies! All lies!”

Anyway, I’d like to get back to tracking my meals and exercise again. Now that Buttercup has been here for a few months,  we’ve moved into our “forever house,” and I’m not traveling for work as much, I feel like I’m at a place now where I can get back to business as usual.

Yesterday I had to meet the carpool early and I knew I wouldn’t have time for breakfast, so I put my breakfast and lunch together the night before. That’s right ladies and gentlemen, I planned ahead. I cooked a cube of ground beef with some garlic and onion and portioned it out into two containers for each meal. Then I packed some snap peas to go with breakfast and a green salad for lunch. Plus some carrots and a bag of “trail mix” (coconut flakes and macadamia nuts) for a snack. Boom. 

This is my Tower o’ Food.

This morning I worked from home, so instead of commuting I got a great 2.84 mile trail run in. Upgrade.

Slightly better than sitting on the San Mateo bridge. 
Meanwhile, the latest in the “I freaking love this house” adventures is the first of the lemons on our lemon tree have ripened!

I am now putting lemon juice on EVERYTHING. Can life get better? I submit that it cannot. 

That’s what I’ve got for today. Go make it a great day!
