1000’s of miles away

Wow.  I’ve been really exciting the past few days.  I blame the headache.  Dottie brought up a good point to use a sinus rince!  I totally forgot that I have a neti pot..duh!  

I’ll spare you the photos of using a Neti Pot but I will direct you here if you’re curious:  kind of gross

Because I didn’t post last night, I was in a pinch this morning with posting + oats + getting ready for work.

The oats were quick but delicious.  I didn’t have time to cook the Scottish Oats so I used rolled oats and they were extra creamy today! Here’s what I did:

Creamy Rolled Oats:

  • 1/3c rolled oats
  • 2/3c almond milk
  • 1/3c coconut kefir [plain]  <----- made the oats super thick + creamy
  • 1/2 banana
  • 1/2t cinnamon


splash of almond milk + mixed berry conserve + maple cinnamon almond butter [I’m almost out!]

Work was a mad house today because of Mother’s Day.  Yikes!  I had it set in my mind that I would get to the park for a bike ride after work.  I’m usually reallllly tired but it was one of the first nice days out today and I didn’t want to miss it.  I got home around 5:30 and was out the door at 6pm.

bike ride –> 5 laps –> 12.5m in about 45min or so

I rode into the grass and continued my workout with 3 sets of 10 pushups and 4 sets of all different types of crunches.  Then I biked home, made dinner, and watched the first Iron Man with Chris.  Not sure how we missed that movie whenever it came out but I can’t wait to see the 2nd one now!

Yup.  2 photos from today.  Lame!

I do have photos from the brunch my Aunt hosted in Cleveland.  Wish I could have been there!!!  I thought I would share :)

My dad and grandma.  My grandma moved to Cleveland a few months back, from North Carolina, after the passing of my Grandfather last fall.


My brother the drummer!  He plays the tabla, which are a type of Indian drum.  He is pretty amazing!!  I have never seen someone move their hands/fingers SO fast.  They are completely different than any type of drum I’ve ever heard. 


Jenna [my 1st cousin] + Grandpa!


Can’t believe I missed the Cassata cake….


I wonder who took this photo!?  Pretty good!!  I love that they take food photos for me when we’re 1000’s of miles apart ;)


Dad, Grandma, Josh


Hiiii to both of my Grandmas!!!  Miss you! 


Shower –> bed –> work –> Phillies vs Rockies baseball game tomorrow night!  The huz is a HUGE Phillies fan!
