Hey, hey. A book, edited.
When Iâ€™ve got a big project to do, I like to set up a work station with everything I could possibly need for the next hour within easy reach. Otherwise, I find far too many excuses to take breaks for water, snacks, my iPhone (because, you know, Facebook is essential for being productiveâ€¦). My favorite thing is to make a great snack platter to pick at while I work.
This snack platter was all sorts of awesomeness. Half an orange for juice, celery sticks for crunch, olives for salt (so addicted to olives lately), and sunflower buttah-stuffed dates for sweet.
After book editing was over, our friend Isaac came over to discuss work. Weâ€™re going into business together on a fun side project and have to iron out all the details. Hope I can tell you about it soonâ€¦. From our new mansions in the Bahamas (ha! dream big, right?).
I made the boys this simple dinner to munch on while we brainstormed:
Looks kind of plain, but it was anything but! I mixed in some Red Wine and Olive Oil Vinaigrette to brown rice, plain baked tofu, and steamed kale. It tasted gourmet but was SO easy to make.
Salad dressings: Not just for salads!
As far as activity goes, I took today as a rest day. Yesterday, I went on a 3.0 mile walk and was floored â€“ truly floored â€“ by how hard and exhausting it was. My legs were burning by the end. I canâ€™t believe how quickly it seems like pregnancy is overtaking my land-based cardio fitness. Iâ€™m still a shark in the pool, though!
Sweet dreams, friends.
