Hellllo! I’m currently in Dallas – my first trip back there since I moved in December. It’s also my last trip of my hectic spring before I move to Virginia. I just had to see Julie and Lauren (and other friends!) before my life gets consumed by premed classes.
Here’s a recap of the week!
Five Things I Ate:
An amazing caramelized onion, spinach, and fontina omelet with a side of fruit at our Mother’s Day brunch at Robust. That thing packed a punch and kept me full for hours!
Juices! I made a huge batch of veggie juice and then added some water to spread it out over 4 (reused) bottles. Cost & Time saving. Plus I think those professional brands add water too. Theirs are never as thick as the ones I make at home. And yes, the nutmilk bag I bought makes the blender juicing process 1000x easier.
Perfectly cooked eggs. Low heat, long time is the key.
Lots of bars! For some reason I was really into my Quest and *NEW* Larabar ALT Bars (with pea protein!) this week! I adore both.
Half avocados. With a spoon. Sea salt on top. Yes please. My meals this week have been green smoothies, bars, eggs, and half avocados. repeat repeat repeat.
Mon: Upper body weights
Tues: Spin + foam rolling class (had some extra core work in it this week)
Wed: Bikram yoga
Thurs: 3 mile run + lower body weights
Fri: ??No clue since I’m be in Dallas! Likely some Reflexion Yoga.

Five Things Making Me Happy:
New Glasses! These were such a debate guys. I am getting new frames for the first time in 8 years now that I have to wear glasses all the time, and after trying on a ton I fell in love with these:
And got approval from all my friends! But both of my parents insist they are too big for me. That my eyes aren’t centered. But I think they are SUPPOSED to look that way – they balance out my face! Ugh. I went back and tried on more pairs and just did not like the narrower frames. So I ordered them, but I still have 30 days to try them on and change my mind. I REALLY like them though! I’m excited to wear them.
A random spark of idea that I got Monday night. I haven’t felt this excited, passionate, and invigorated in a long time. It might (likely) go no where, but it’s so fun to have my wheels turning!
I’m going to be ON THE RADIO!!!! I’ll be on The Conversation with Ross Reynalds on KUOW, the NPR affiliate in Seattle on Monday at 2:15pm central. They are doing a segment on eating disorders and are having me speak to thinspiration and fitspiration. I already had an intro call with a lady from the show to go over the topic. Very excited!
The mug my dad brought me home. He told me he had a surprise for me, and when I got home this was sitting on the counter. Here is the conversation:Me: “Did one of your patients give you that?” Dad: “Yep!” Me: “Did you give it to me because it has a cute little spoon?” Dad: “Yep!”
Your Turn! What’s making you happy this week?
