Hi everyone. Thanks so much for the Insta-love while I was in Colorado. As a life-long East Coaster, I must admit mountain-living really suits me. There might be less oxygen up but there is an abundance of heart. I walked into a juice/oat shop in Denver (yup, that’s a thing, hi friends at ProsperOats), and as I waited for them to mix up my juice, I joined a conversation that EVERYONE in the shop was having. I left knowing each patrons’ plans for the rest of the day (obviously they were all going to go exercise/be outside/plant something).
Now I’m back in NYC growling at everyone on the subway and walking with my neck craned into my phone’s screen to avoid unsanctioned human interaction.
Here’s what happened last week in the Centennial state.
Hi, everyone! What do you think of the new look of Cuckoolemon.com? I would love your opinion; let me know in the comment section if you have any feedback.
Now a few housekeeping items. (Sorry Matt, this is the only housekeeping I plan to do this week.)
Thank you to everyone who entered the REI Giveaway Sweeps. I’d like to congratulate commenter JUANITO! (real name: Jon Goren) on being the randomly selected winner! (I used a random number generator, FYI.) Jon, check your email for your gift card!
A few weeks ago, I participated in Kale with a Side of Fries‘ two-week winter detox jam. I am going to write about my experience soon, for sure. Since the detox, I’ve had a renewed excitement for healthy cooking. I wanted to bake something sweet. I scoured the internet for a healthy muffin recipe and found this 5-ingredient one from the blog Pinch of Yum. The recipe is super simple and the muffins were delicious. I used these gluten-free oats from Bakery on Main. They have 8 grams of protein and 5 grams of fiber per serving! (No one is paying me to say this. Though I would be open to accepting dollars, OKAY Bakery on Main?)
Here’s this week’s workout recap!
Is it Thanksgiving yet? No? Okay. I am just binge eating for sport in that case.
Song of the week: “212” by Azealia Banks ft Lazy Jay. This is one of my favorite running songs and it is 0% safe for work.
Last week’s workouts:
Monday: Nothing. I made a $25 donation to Refine Method by paying and being too tired/lazy to show up to class. You’ll see this is a trend in this post.
What if my bitmoii self is my best self?
Oh hello! Last week was probably one of my most fierce weeks in a while. Not so much this week. But I had fun.
Monday: Physique 57in the am. It was the first day of Rosh Hashanah and I have a personal tradition of waking up early to work out before the long sit at temple.
Wednesday: I took a pretty meh Peloton class. The music was blah and I never really hit my stride.
Oh, hey. How is your week going?
When we left off, I was sick in LA. Now it’s time for this week’s workout recap.
Monday: The fog finally lifted (I am referring to my sickness, LA was 80 and sunny the whole time). The gang went on a 7-mile hike in Griffith Park. It was hot and lovely.
