Flight Cancelled = Big Cookie

Hello Denver storm!

Unfortunately, Zach’s flight was cancelled tonight :(.  Whomp whomp.  To say I’ve been stressed out today would be a bit of an understatement.  The poor guy has been working his tail off and is exhausted.   Sure I miss him crazy style, but really I just want that boy to get home and finally be able to rest!

The good news:  he is currently waiting to board a flight to Colorado Springs for tonight. . . possibly staying with family OR driving to Denver from the Springs, depending on weather.

Everyone send him safe travel vibes, OK?

When I get frustrated. . . 

I bake.

Yes that is a giant cast iron skillet cookie — I was inspired earlier in the week by a post on a fellow (and AWESOME blogger) Sarah @ SweetMiles.  Of course, I made some healthifying tweeks. . . but BOY does it smell delicious.  I’ll be sharing the recipe, after I sample it of course (and you know I’ll be eating plenty as I eat my frustrations tonight ;).

That’s all I have for you all tonight.   I leave you drooling and hopefully sending the boy lots of safe travel vibes!


Feelin’ Good

You know, I’ve heard many times lately that you don’t know how bad you feel until you start feeling better.  Well let’s just say I am feeling good today and SO thankful for that!   I think a few nights of relaxing, yoga, and a week of good eating have treated me well and my body is seemingly happy again.  Perfect timing 🙂

Last night’s Whole Foods bowl was just another repeat (yes, 3 days in a row now.  I’m sorry I’m not sorry).

Enjoyed while watching some Real World Ex-plosion . . . don’t judge.

This Morning

It’s a pretty overcast morning here in Denver, so my extra hour of sleep didn’t quite feel like the normal hour that it is. . . but with that said I still got up feeling rested and ready for a recovery run after yesterday’s speed work + 30 minute workout.

Workout of the day: Progressive run

  • Start at 6.3 on the treadmill and increased the speed every song until about 4 miles
  • Finish four miles and walk it out until 40 minutes

Easy peasy and just what the doctor ordered.

I know this is a short one, but we need to get into work a little earlier than normal today so I gotta run!  Have a great Thursday everyone — send good weather vibes Zach’s way so that he makes it home tonight!  He’s currently on his plane from Heathrow to Chicago but the weather in Denver is supposed to pretty nasty tonight. . . fingers crossed!

Question of the Morning:  What’s something that you could eat 3 days in a row and not be sick of it at all?
