I missed a few days of Blog Every Day in May – work, yoga, hanging out with friends (coworkers), my brother’s senior art show (he rocked it), spending time with family… all these things leave little time for blogging! I have been reading up a storm, too. This book I cannot put down (love Marian Keyes):
Cracks in My Foundation
I’m also revisiting Naturally Thin, by Bethenny Frankel. When I first read it I was kind of critical of some of her tips, but I actually think she has some good advice, and it’s a fun read. It’s given me some good recipe ideas too.
Anyway… onto today’s prompt:
Day 12, Sunday: What do you miss? (a person, a thing, a place, a time of your life…)
This prompt has the potential to be sad but I’m going to keep it light hearted

Thursday Latelies used to be posts where I shared, via video, a few things I was loving for the week. This week I’m not feeling a video but I wanted to share some things anyway. I’ve been alluding to various changes in my life these last few posts so here we go!
I mentioned this once before, but never really talked about it again – Bobby and I moved across town to a bigger, newer apartment and we couldn’t be happier. Things were shaky at first (aren’t they always) but I have gotten to love my new space. Here are some pics. I haven’t quite finished arranging so maybe these will be “before” pictures.
(I think I can mostly fix what he did – stupid cat thought the chair was a new scratching post. Also, I just noticed in this picture – he is certainly looking slimmer than he used to!)

Yoga teacher training is going well. It sure is exhausting though, to have no break between the workweek, training, another workweek, another training… whew. I am thankful for the break I’ll get this coming weekend. In the meantime, I took it easy today.
I’ve been meaning to share this yummy lunch that I had my first weekend of training. It was from the newly re-named Dig Inn (formerly known as The Pump Energy Food). So this is:
1) choice protein: lemon chicken
2) grains or greens: mixed greens
3) fresh sides: balsamic mushrooms, red cabbage slaw, indian spiced carrots
And I believe the sauce I got was the roasted red pepper, which has almonds (or some other nut) in it.
Delicious. I got a full size and finished it but I think I could have made do with less – I was way too full afterwards! (I’m still working on this “moderation” thing.)
