This weekend was gorgeous up here in P-land. The fall air is finally starting to kick in, with the exception of the blanket of sunshine. Which made for the perfect setting for yoga in the park!
Erica of Wise Minds. Big Hearts. lead a group of us through a gentle yoga session with the grass under our feet and the sun in our hair. The way yoga should be.
Then it was off to get my fall on!
One of our employee perks is a free peck of PYO apples (hell yeah!), so I recruited Becky to join me for some orchard-ing. It take a good 20 minutes for us to fill our bags to the brim. And like always, I took a bite of almost every apple they had available for quality control measures. Can someone make that a real job for me please?
After all our hard efforts, we earned ourselves some $5 martinis. A Frenchy for me, which tasted like cotton candy dipped in vodka. My kind of carnival treat.
Sunday I woke up feeling like the underside of a toilet seat after a night of tossing and turning and a terrible sore throat. After a couple gargles of salt water, and chugging Emergen-C and green tea, I decided to take a rest day instead of the training run I had planned. Sometimes you have to just listen to your body and do what it needs.
And Trader Joe’s Pumpkin O’s fit the bill. No bowl or milk even required. Insert hand. Reach end of box. Repeat.
Instead of falling victim to the pumpkin wormhole, a more substantial breakfast is in Law & Order.
Oats are so the black sheep of the grain world. Only allowed to be covered in brown sugar, cinnamon, or anything that resembles a dessert at 7AM. While rice gets to be with beans and pudding. Quinoa? Well it just gets a fast pace right next to acai and spirulina on the superfood express where it gets to be whatever the eff it wants.
Don’t worry oats. Mama Sin’s gotcha back. You sing your savory little heart out. #OatsWins.
