Yesterday was a fabulous day.
Today sucks (says Negative Nancy).
(+) productive early morning
(+) quick outdoor workout
(+) weather: sunny and 75F
(+) bubble gum pink pedicure with girlfriends
(+) lunch al fresco with girlfriends
(+) successful shopping: Lucky sandals, swim suit, adorable picture frame (for Instagram photos)
(+) finish IIN module for the week
(+) run in the park with Grace
(+) delicious homemade juice made by Grace
(-) embarrassing recipe flop: I had high hopes for the Minimalist Baker’s Vegan Coconut Carrot Pancakes; yet, somewhere, something went askew because the dense, oily cakes weren’t what I had intended to serve Grace for breakfast.
(-) fight with the bathroom scale – ugh!
(-) splatter soy sauce on my favorite Lulu top
(-) cut the same knuckle of my pre-injured thumb

so thankful for pain-free runs!
It was another pretty solid week of exercise over here — a fairly equal mix of cardio and strength, with a mix of intensities as well. I’m very happy that I ran approximately 11 miles pain-free (hey, it’s progress!).
