Thing 2: Detox Update:
You might remember that my post-Boards detox included no caffeine for a week, 3x a week running and 2x a week strength training...
Caffeine: John's (former) roommate works at Starbucks and makes awesome french press coffee in the morning.
Therefore, long story short I wasn't going to pass up something so delicious just because it was only Day 6 (Thursday). SO worth it. And I didn't get a headache on Day 5, or today, so I deem myself successfully off the caffeine-dependence. Side of (poorly photographed) oatmeal: 1/2 cup oats, ~1 cup milk, 1/2 banana, dollop peanut butter (the good stuff - Boyfriend has the crunchy Peanut Butter & Co.)
Running: 2/3 this week. Not sure if the third will happen though. Maybe if I wake up before it gets hot tomorrow. It's possible.
Strength: I'm going to go ahead and count helping John move as strength training. Heavy boxes right?
Thing 3: After breakfast yesterday we headed down towards Irvine and stopped in Long Beach to have lunch with John's Grandmother. She had set out a gorgeous table and was incredibly savvy to my vegan preferences. We had soup, bread, fruit salad, and I forgot to photograph dessert, but it was called a "Chewy" and it was incredible. I know flour, sugar and pecans were involved. I plan to find out in what proportions, because, wow.
Thing 4: After safe arrival and some moving of heavy things into John's new apartment, we were pretty hungry and low on energy. Time to track down some vegan-friendly food. Well, turns out Irvine may just be a vegan heaven. More on that in my next post...
