Just Another Manic Monday

Holy cow. Monday isn’t even close to over, but it’s already hit me like a ton of bricks. Blahhhh. Let’s hope this isn’t a sign for the rest of the week!

Once again, I just need to THANK YOU guys for all of your awesome responses on my recent CNC survey. The majority of you wanted more “day in the life” posts, so your wish is my command, and I’ll do my best to keep up with them. They’re actually my favorite kind of post to write, which, of course, is how this blog started nearly 10 years ago, but now I feel like alllllllll I do is sit at a computer and work. Boring. Ha! But, hey, maybe I can make it exciting, right? 😉

This morning kicked off with a big bowl of Chia-Flaxseed + Protein Overnight Oats with a big scoop of Trader Joe’s Crunchy Salted Peanut Butter with Flax & Chia Seeds. I’m still trucking along with the seed cycling-hormonal stuff, and I find this is recipe is the easiest way to get all of those flax and chia seeds into my diet!

And, of course the pug wasn’t far from the food action.


After breakfast, I got Qman and I ready for the day. On the way to school, he stopped to take some photos outside of our house. I love that he enjoys taking photos so much! 🙂

Check out my mums – isn’t it weird that one died, but the other one is totally fine?

After dropping Quinn at school, I drove home and immediately got to work. My hope was for a totally uninterrupted morning with no calls, meetings, or places I needed to be, but it was just the opposite with one million fires to put out, phone calls, emails that needed immediate attention… gahhhh. I know it’s all part of the job, but so much for “dominating” my to do list.

I did, however, squeeze in some recipe testing… caramel popcorn, rolled oats, peanut butter… hey, now!

Unfortunately, it was a total bomb, BUT the recipe definitely has potential. It tastes great; it just needs something more to hold it together.

I spent the rest of the afternoon glued to my laptop before my neck and shoulders started to bother me. Whomp whomp. It was definitely a sign that I needed to get up and move around, so I threw on my sneakers and headed out for a run.

I’m actually running the Tel Aviv Night Run at the end of the month, so I’m trying to keep my mileage up around 5-6 miles per run a couple of times a week. I’ll give you guys the full details about my trip to Israel soon, but, in the meantime, does anyone have advice for long flights? My flight from Newark to Tel Aviv is 10.5 hours! Beside sleep, what should I do/pack/download?

I hope you’re having a productive Monday so far!
