Sometimes I feel like my workouts rule my day. Not that they take up so much time, but it’s more a matter of showering + looking presentable. If I don’t exercise first thing, I postpone taking a shower until I do exercise. And that means I don’t want to leave my house! If I have an errand to run, sometimes I’ll put on jeans + some makeup and go out, but I wouldn’t want to go to a social event without a shower.
I’m fortunate to have a flexible schedule, but sometimes I think it’s kind of dumb that showering dictates my day.
I also feel that my bike rules my life a little bit (I’ll postpone a much-needed trip to the grocery store for days depending on weather or the fact that I don’t want to start my car engine!) This is good for planet earth, but bad for errand running!
So today I showered, got dressed and left with the attitude of “If I feel like working out later I will, otherwise I won’t!”
I drove over to Jefferson Vineyards to deliver my quarterly wine club newsletter work – the scallops recipe + blind tasting notes!
And on the way home, I drove by the Monticello Trail. I decided to pull in on a whim and went for a 30 minute walk! No re-showering necessary, and a great burst of exercise. I’m so glad I decided to stop!
I then headed to Staples to pick up some things for the bakery, and then to the bakery to deliver them.
And then back home to finish a few things on my computer before digging in to lunch.
Our garden is sprouting lots of adorable baby greens – kale, collards, chard, butterhead lettuce, herbs! We had such a good time harvesting greens last summer, and I’m SO excited to save money (and trips to the grocery store because we’re out of lettuce!) again this year!
Was turned into a salad!
I topped the salad with chickpeas, a hard-boiled egg, pecans, cranberries and GH bread cubes. Yum!
Apple on the side. Not a good apple.
And sparkling water spiked with some CHOCOLATE mint our landlords pointed out a few weeks ago! It really does smell chocolatey!
Just had 2 squares of dark chocolate. Life is complete.

Back to the bakery I do – and I’m packing yoga clothes – just in case I feel like it!
