the (many) dailies : 11/9/11 – 11/12/11

Well…sometimes a week just swallows you whole! Here’s what’s been going down over the past few days:

daily word: These verses have been near and dear this week, Philippians 2:14-16:

“Do everything without complaining and arguing, so that no one can criticize you. Live clean, innocent lives as children of God, shining like bright lights in a world full of crooked and perverse people. Hold firmly to the word of life; then, on the day of Christ’s return, I will be proud that I did not run the race in vain and that my work was not useless.”

daily sweat: A little CrossFit here, a little running there, and a little bit of Arc Trainer just because I forgot how much I liked it!

daily dish: Piecing together random leftovers to make meals has been the name of the game this week. That, and these AMAZING cookies…which have been consumed enthusiastically since Thursday.

daily miles:

Day 65: like watching pavement-colored paint dry

Day 66: miscellany

Day 67: act justly, love mercy, walk humbly, eat chocolate

Day 68: the meat of the matter

(Somehow I managed to block Day 68 from my roadtrip memories…but now it’s back in all it’s gory glory.)

21 days: Surprisingly, fairly consistent! I’d say I’m 2.5/3 this week…with the .5 going to aforementioned baked goods and their enthusiastic consumption.

the dailies : 11.7.11

daily word: This one has to go to Annie. Today, in her just-turned-4 logic, she explained Thanksgiving as follows: “There are lots of turkeys. And you know, turkeys taste great when they’re dead!”

daily sweat: An hour on the arc trainer this morning, which was a deviation of my original plan to do a long run, but there was literally not one square inch of my body that felt like running 6 miles was a good idea. It was totally different than “I don’t feel like running today.” It was more like, “PLEASE…for the love of all that is sanity…DO NOT GET ON THE TREADMILL.” So, I didn’t! And the hour on the arc trainer felt great! A good lesson in working out wisely.

daily dish: I don’t know why but this lunch thrilled me to pieces.

Carrot sticks in hummus, red grapes, and butternut quinoa stew.

daily mile:

Day 64: pummeled by faithfulness

(this is still true)
