  • dinner: pork + fruit + sweet potato brownie
  • snack: dark chocolate
  • snack: Cold Stone ice cream cone (I’d forgotten how expensive it is! That’s another good reason not to do this again.)

  • breakfast round 2: frittata + larabar
  • lunch: Zaxby’s grilled house salad minus the fried onions + honey mustard dressing + brownie + sweet tea

I could’ve made a child in that time. I chose to build a bicep.

First day of Zone in the books. I didn’t hit my 15 blocks. There just is no way I can eat three large meals and two sizeable snacks, at least on a rest day. I hit 13 and am willing to count that a success. I might try five 3 block meals and see if it’s easier. 

First impression is that it’s a lot of food. Stupid volume of carbs, unless you’re eating just butternut squash and sweet potatoes or starchy fruit. This’ll take a minute to get used to, oy. The fact that I’m feeling decidedly gross and heartburny probably didn’t help. Paleo zone u y so tricky?

omg looks so gooood

Hi, hi!

I haven’t been posting because I’ve been off of the computer except when I’m working at my internship, which is not tumblr time, unfortunately.

I’ve been walking everywhere and working a ton between training for my new job at a salon/spa (it’s going so great!) and working at my internship. Busy busy summer, but well worth it.

Been spending oodles of time with friends from high school and college and new friends that I decided I should finally hang out with after having kind of known them in one arena or another. 

Got back together with my old high school boyfriend because he’s the best. I broke it off because I was moving away and didn’t want to deal with trying to be a long distance girlfriend as well as being a student far away from home. We’ve been talking like crazy people since seeing each other at a reunion of the high school friend group. It’s a good thing.

All’s generally well, looking forward to starting lifting within the next month as well as making food in the house I just moved into. So far there’s no space for storing food so I’m wondering if I should bring my college fridge with me. Probably a yes. 

6.75 mile bike ride tonight- it was great! 
Pretty warm and SO MANY PEOPLE, but it was great to get out. 
So let me tell you what’s been going on! I moved back to the Twin Cities, I start work at a salon within the next two weeks and I started an internship at a non-profit (downtown, ooooh!) last week. I’m so excited for work this summer and for the next few years! 
I’ve been spending time with old friends, as well. Many of them plan to move out of MN within the year, which I’m both sad and excited about. I’ve always thought I’d use MN as a home base and travel as much as possible, while living here. They’re planning to move and experience living in different places before they’re tied down. I think that’s so great!! And I hope I can visit them, wherever they end up. 
Besides visiting Canada, going to interviews and spending time with the family, I’ve just been trying to wrap my mind around moving in a few weeks. It’s a really exciting time. Transient is the name of the game.
I started reading The New Rules Of Lifting for Women (thank you Jess) and I really like the idea of getting strong this way. When I pictured “weight lifting” I pictured all exercises done from a bench press position… I don’t know. I just had no understanding of what lifting meant. But reading about the exercises, it’s really awesome to try to wrap my mind around it. The tougher part to think about planning is eating, since that’s always been my tough thing.
Loving life, checking in, hope you’re all well!
