Ups and downs

Do you ever get your meal set up on a pretty plate looking photogenic and then forget to actually take the picture?  I’ve been doing a lot of that lately.

Some ups:

Cantaloupe & toast

adho mukha svanasana
— I am not a yoga person.  Figuring out the name took quite a bit of searching!

“Really??  More pictures? Is this photoshoot almost over yet?”

Cherry pop-tart. Toasted.  Add ice cream. Enjoy.

Exercise yesterday:

Spinning with my mom! I’ve missed spinning oh so much.  It had been over a month (maybe even two??) since my last class and I was feeling it.  The instructor was hardcore and, as always, she brought on the pain.  Running with resistance is killer and she made us do a quite a bit of that during one of the songs. 
I need to start doing those classes regularly again.

Dinner last night:

We started off [with my dad] making us guacamole.  He used lime juice instead of lemon juice last night and it was a nice change.

Keeping with the Mexican theme…

Mango margarita with blue salt? Yes please.

Going German for the main course.

Sausage on a bun with german mustard.

So good.

Prepping for tonight’s dinner:

3 dozen wings

In the smoker.

With hickory wood chips for flavoring.


Scrambled egg, onion, ham & cheese burrito

Yogurt with thawed strawberries & raw oatmeal

The downs:

Yesterday, we found out that a woman that lived in our neighborhood a few years back passed away from ovarian cancer.  My heart goes out to her husband and three young kids.

Plans for today:

  • Make peach/strawberry cobbler
  • Run errands
  • Run “Predict your time” race in Norfolk.
  • Eat hot wings
  • Eat cobbler


I’m hanging out with someone I haven’t seen since fourth grade.  Excited 🙂

  1. So exciting! All your food looks amazing, so jealous.

  2. Hey how did the race go?! I’m sure you did awesome. Wow your smoker looks awesome- it makes mine look so old school haha. I love doing whole turkeys and Briskets on it.

    Definitely craving a Pop Tart with ice cream now…

    • It’s my dad’s smoker, I barely even know how to use it! haha he loooooves it though. I think he’s done a brisket in there, but he normally just does wings and stuff like that. He makes the wings and then freezes them for later. Yum 🙂

  3. Love the doggie yoga. 😀

    How was the race?

    • Hey! Sorry I didn’t respond earlier! I’ve just been so busy lately – Good thing though 🙂 I was so excited when she did that position again, I missed it the first time. The race was great! I did a lot better than I was expecting! 9:18 avg pace. Wrote about it on the blog, but didn’t post too many details. I’m really happy about how I did though and it was a really fun low key race

  4. your puppy pics are so cute! and toasted poptarts with ice THAT’S HOW IT’S DONE.


    • Thanks! I like taking pictures of Lexi 🙂 I take a lot! haha It really IS how it’s done! SO DELICIOUS! but I need to stop eating that so much! The nutritional facts are horrible!
