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 sweat: A really great morning of CrossFit bootcamp. Eventually I want to write a post about my CrossFit experience so far, but in the meantime here’s a basic intro to CrossFit for those of you who’ve had no idea what I’ve been talking about for the past two weeks:

I really, really, really love it.

daily word: “31 What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? 32 He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all—how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things? 33 Who will bring any charge against those whom God has chosen? It is God who justifies. 34 Who then is the one who condemns? No one.” Romans 8:31-34

daily sweat: 6 mile run! again!

daily dish: I went to Moe’s for the first time tonight. Holy goodness! It won’t be the last time. Now truth be told, I’m a Chipotle loyalist for life, but I appreciate Moe’s customizable features to make things a bit healthier: the whole wheat wrap and junior size options, specifically.

daily sweat: CrossFit! Great way to start the day.

daily dish: I’d say it was the fall oatmeal we talked about earlier this morning…but it was actually the shoo fly pie I ate for lunch this afternoon. For real.

(Totally forgot about the guy with the bird stuffed into his shirt. That detail was lost among the more colorful memories of the day.)
