Wrapped another day. More learning. Still enjoying it!
I love the problem solving. Dare I say charting reminds me of geometry proofs? And calculus problems? Step by step procedure. Love it!

So I got home today and got to work on the TWO HUNDRED emails I got today. Guf!! I do read each and every one (most of those were comments, but probably 50 of them were real emails!) so it takes me a while to sort through them when I can’t check my phone throughout the day.
I’ve decided that getting home and rushing to the gym stresses me out. I prefer to unwind a little. Get some work done. Pack my lunch and get all that daily work complete before I think about my workout. That way I can enjoy it! So long as I’ve had a substantial snack (had my apple + Alliebar today at 4:30/5!), then I’m OK. I’ve been hungrier less in the afternoons lately too?
Now that it’s springtime and the weather is so nice, I’m looking at my workout as a chance to “go play outside.” With more daylight, there’s no rush to beat the sunset. It reminds me of when I was little and I would go play at all hours of the day. It didn’t matter if dinner was appraoching – if I had a little time, I’d go play for a little. I’m thinking of my workout the same way. Rather than some big cardio date, it’s just a string of playtime periods.
Bike to the gym.
Read Better Homes + Gardens.
Play with some weights.
Play foam roller.
Bike home for dinner.
I even had mom making dinner tonight. And by mom I mean Matt! Lifesaver. I’ll say it again and again. Our split dinners are working out well. He cooks early. I eat late. I promise I’ll pay him back when he’s working super hard on the bakery and I’m the one with a little more time.
On the menu: Tempeh Tacos!!
Tempeh + corn sauteed with Mexican spice (cumin, chili powder, Seasoning From Hell) over top of steamed cabbage with salsa, avocado, cilantro and plain Oikos!
Soooo delicious!! I like these Food For Life sprouted tortillas. They’re small, so you can have two, and I actually like how incredibly chewy they are.
The salsa was Don Sabrosa’s. I’m still floored by the LACK of onions in this salsa. I almost didn’t accept it because I generally don’t care for salsa at ALL but these are great and leave no onion taste in my mouth! Just good old tomato flavor and spice.
I watched GLEE on OPRAH with my dinner. Fabuloso! Can’t wait for it to start up again!
Dessert was a nibblet of my Chocomize selection – tonight I tapped into the butterscotch, peanut butter, toffee!
I had two little corners like this. A.mazing. The toffee + butterscotch combo is just divine. Reminded me of smores!
Chocomize is giving you all a 10% discount with the code: katheats. Enjoy if you wish!!
