With days that turn into nights waaaaay too early, I found myself without running. My scheduled workouts fell by the wayside and I unintentionally missed runs. Night running is pretty much limited to one path (the only street in Encinitas with lighting). And sometimes incessant (week long) hunger makes dinner sound waaaay better than yoga.
Monday night Kendall and I attended the reveal of the Seasons 52 winter menu at a special blogger preview.
Tuesday night I squeezed in a run with Kate before the girls and I gathered at London’s neighbor’s house for a homey, warm fall dinner — Cardiff Crack, grilled asparagus and Kendall’s vegan tomato soup
Wednesday I suffered from an on-and-off eye twitch (which I’m pretty sure signifies my impending death :-P) all day. So when it came to get my eyelashes done, I COULD NOT RELAX. All I could think about was how much my eyeball must be moving under my eyelid, and how I could not control it or get it to stop. Afterwards I easily easily easily could have done nothing. Luckily I had Kate to coerce me into another week run, and then I was able to go over to Kendall’s where she fed me a nice salmon dinner she had already made #blessedwiththebest.
Thursday night Kendall and I planned to go to yoga. But lately, I’ve been having hunger issues. Like, can’t eat enough I’m legitimately hungry, to the point where I just want to be able to stop eating! So it didn’t take much convincing to get dinner instead of a workout (East Village Asian Diner again if you were wondering 😉 ).
Early Friday morning I stuffed 3 dozen balloons into my car and then set up our Breast Cancer Walk cheering station for work. With a short day at work, I left late morning for an exciting photoshoot downtown with Fit Andy and Kate. Definitely felt paparazzi style, strolling downtown trying to look candid in our sporty chic attire. After a good number of hours shooting, snacking on goldfish, gummies and granola bars, Kate and I were ravenous (because, please feed the models!!!). We ended up staying downtown and chowing at The Neighborhood, devouring THE BEST burgers, and some unique one-offs of beer for the passing San Diego Beer Week.
Once the weekend hit, I realized that I failed to have any mornings to myself all week. Every day was an earlier one, so on Saturday I tried to capitalize on getting just a little more sleep. Elisa and I met later (around 8:30am) for a run, but little did I know it would rise back up to 80+ degrees in late November – __ – After our run we baked these muffins. And then I spent the rest of my evening, having the most bizarre blogging environment/experience at Better Buzz until Jen and her daughter, Tyler, swooped me up for a dinner at Solace
Sunday morning was BY FAR the best trail run out at Noble Canyon. You bet a full review is coming soon!!! Eventually, the 5+ hours of running this past weekend definitely caught up to me, and I snuck in a nap that I eventually woke up from just to go to sleep.
This new week I’m feeling especially thankful, I suppose just in time for Thanksgiving
