Recap!

Hello Again!

Sorry for the delay in posts.  I wish I had an epic reason other than just being distracted by life outside of work, but alas I do not and I apologize.  Pretty much a blog fail.  For the most part I’ve just gotten sucked into reading a variety of books, articles, and other information holes on the internet revolving around nutrition, fitness, and getting your “Dream Job” over at Ramit Sethi’s site.  One might infer that I’m in that “New Year” mindset ( I know it’s February already you have full permission to judge away) and am trying to really reflect on what I want to accomplish in my life and as a person.  Seriously though, if you are feeling like you are in a rut or just want to learn good advice on how to actually tackle anything in life I suggest you go check out Iwillteachyoutoberich.com Ramit Sethi is a no candy coating, no excuses kind of guy and I appreciate it a lot because he also goes into the psychological barriers that hold most of us back.

Anywho, moving on, here is a quick recap of what else I’ve been up to besides fiddling around on the interwebz.

1) Eating a lot of spaghetti squash.

Pork Stew with Spaghetti Squash noms!

It's like a small child.

Sorry about the spandex.  I played volleyball for 8 years so I find myself inadvertently sporting them more often than I should and thus couldn’t find a sans spandex picture showing the massiveness of this squash.

$0.99! A prime example of Bargain Bin FTW

These beasts were $0.39/lb or even just $0.99 for the whole damn thing if it was in the bargain bin.  You can’t even get a box of pasta for that cheap and grains are just bad anyhow, so I urge you to try out this magical yellow vegetable.

2) Working on being able to do a pullup.

And why you might ask? Well ever since I was 40lb of human being in elementary school this is just something I’ve never quite been able to do.  Sad indeed, but that is how it is. Baby steps people.

Coming to a gym near you! Liz does unassisted pullup : D

3) Running…wait what?

Yes, I hate running, but as a belated graduation gift Mynchia presented the man and I an all expenses paid trip for the Tough Mudder in Big Bear this July.  The course is about 10 miles so I need to rack up my running miles if I’m going to finish this fun adventure and run through an electrical field at the finish line……….

I’m super excited about that part, can’t you tell?

So much fun right?

4) Taking pictures of animals.

Hanging out at work

I love animals and animals love me or so I think.

It's SOOO FLUFFY!!!

Woman cats being all womanly

5) Started a meetup

If you haven’t heard about meetup.com it’s a pretty neat social site where the point is for people to actually come together in the flesh and do fun things such as hikes, movies, network, etc.  Go check it out it’s a cool way to acquaint yourself with other cool people in your neighborhood.

And if you’re not busy this Sunday and you live in the Bay Area you should come to my Paleo Picnic Potluck at Lake Temescal : )

6) Made Tacos for the Superbowl ala the Kitchn

I ate mine with butter lettuce leafs and homemade guacomle. Delish!

So that’s a wrap of the last 4 weeks in a nutshell and I do apologize for my posting delays. I’ll be working on getting back to my regularly scheduled program ASAP!

Have a great week!
