I kicked off my Friday with an early run date with my buddy Chelsea. 🙂
One of many tremendous unhappy issues about shifting is that I’m now not a number of blocks away from Chelsea, who has been my weekly exercise class buddy for ages.
We’ve been going to at least one or two lessons per week collectively for… 6 or 7 years now!? She’s the very best – all the time very chipper and upbeat, even within the very early morning. 🙂
We continued our exercise enjoyable whereas she lived on the far finish of DC for a pair years, so I’m certain we’ll hold it going now… however it is going to in all probability simply be again to as soon as per week as an alternative of twice!
For now, we’re going to combine it up from lessons and do some run dates till the climate will get chilly and darkish.
We met up at Gravelly Level close to the airport – a lot of planes flying RIGHT overhead which is all the time enjoyable.
These views by no means get previous.
three informal miles – verify!
Different fitness this week was one other yoga class (at Ease Cafe in Del Ray – very nice spot, though I want they supplied 6:30 or 6:45 a.m. lessons as an alternative of solely 6am! oof), and an OrangeTheory class yesterday.
I’ve some lessons to make use of up at OrangeTheory earlier than they expire and there’s one near us so I’ll in all probability attempt to go as soon as every week over the subsequent couple months. Final Friday, Chelsea and I went collectively! She works from residence on Fridays so has somewhat extra wiggle room timing-wise and didn’t thoughts coming to me.
Here’s a sweaty post-class selfie in your viewing pleasure.
As for meals, we loved one other Solar Basket dinner on Wednesday evening – some hen and black bean tacos.
I’m allllways down for tacos so this hit the spot. They really had some recent diced apple in them as an alternative of cabbage or jicama – attention-grabbing twist! Attempt it!
We had some hen leftover so I ate it final evening for dinner – Matt was out and the fridge was trying fairly sparse so I threw collectively a random wrap with hen, spinach, cheese, and chili garlic scorching sauce. It might have used some black beans to amp it up, however we have been out!
I used to be nonetheless hungry after so I had some random cereal + muesli + goji berries.
As for in the present day, I had some avocado toast with eggs for breakfast post-run that I didn’t get a photograph of as a result of Riese was mid-meltdown whereas I used to be consuming.
For lunch in the present day, I threw collectively tuna salad sandwiches on some yummy farmers’ market bread, plus an enormous combined greens salad on the aspect.
Time to attempt to deal with some extra emails earlier than Riese wakes up from her nap.
Have an awesome weekend and see you guys again right here Monday!
