the dailies : 9.30.11

daily word: Friday. That sounds like a wonderful word of the day. Especially since the word for yesterday was Lame…the only word for a day in which one falls asleep on the couch at 7:30pm (hence the lack of a dailies post). Seriously…what is wrong with me?

On a more serious note, this is the verse that has actually been on my mind today, thanks to another great podcast from Living on the Edge: “For the Lord God is our sun and our shield. He gives us grace and glory. The Lord will withhold no good thing from those who do what is right.” Psalm 84:11

daily sweat: AH-mazing yoga class yesterday morning; quick walk around the block today.

daily dish:

PB&J oatmeal bar with a banana for breakfast, leftovers for lunch:

A lentil burger from the fruit and salad company, along with half of a slice honeycrisp apple…a variety which I’m basically head over heels in love with. I can’t wait to get more at the farmer’s market on Sunday! Dinner will be featured in too much detail in a future post…it was that good. There was pie involved.

daily mile:

Day 24: mecca (I miss this place)

Day 25: not being an island (I’m still working on this)


the dailies : 9.27.11

daily word: “Oh, how great are God’s riches and wisdom and knowledge! How impossible it is for us to understand his decisions and his ways! For who can know the Lord’s thoughts? Who knows enough to give him advice?And who has given him so much that he needs to pay it back?For everything comes from him and exists by his power and is intended for his glory.” Romans 11:33 – 36

daily sweat: I had an orientation to the weight room today at the gym. I think I will also have an orientation to new muscle pain tomorrow when I wake up. I’m also taking a beginner’s yoga series at breathe, which was probably exactly what I needed to stretch out my overused/undertoned non-muscles.

daily dish:

I had pictures but my phone/email is rebelling and won’t deliver them. So here’s the rundown:

Beautiful breakfast on the canal (thanks to an early morning workout!) with an Ezekiel muffin with sunflower butter, banana slices, and triple berry jam. A nectarine and a handful of fall-colored M&M’s in between, and then lunch was leftover pizza, string beans with hummus, and chocolate chips with dried cherries. Dinner was on-the-go before yoga: a peanut butter oatmeal square, banana, and iced caramel macchiato. And then an apple and more M&M’s to top the night off!

Oh my word. That’s so boring without the pictures/anything new. I’d take it all out but since I just made the effort to jot it down I’ll leave it as is, but tomorrow I’ll try to put something especially exciting in the mix for you to make up for the lameness today.

Day 22 : taking time to learn about the story

the dailies : 9.15.11

daily word: “Yes, I am the vine; you are the branches. Those who remain in me, and I in them, will produce much fruit. For apart from me you can do nothing.” John 15:5 (NLT)

daily sweat: My first (and possibly last) Spin class. I think I’m just not a fan of stationary bikes in large doses.

daily dish:


More pumpkin pie oatmeal! This stuff is legit. I can’t wait to post the recipe once I figure out what I put in it and take some decent pictures.


Last night’s leftovers.


Round FOUR of the quinoa and bulgar salad…another recipe I should post if only for it’s economic and nutritional prowess.


A Finger Lakes’ bananas foster coffee, a Tim Horton’s coffee, and a vanilla chai. I was all about the jolt today.

daily mile:

Day 11: humbled.
