Happy Fourth of July! This year the holiday also happens to fall on a Wednesday. For those of you in the States, hope you’re enjoying a lovely celebration, whether that involves a cookout, watching the fireworks with your nearest and dearest, or I don’t know, watching 1776 in your air-conditioned living room.
In the spirit of this month’s theme, “Fun, Food & Fitness,” I kicked Monday off with some living room yoga and a spottily playlist that included artists such as M. Ward, The Pixies, The White Stripes, Bob Dylan, and Spoon, among others. I’m not someone who really needs flutes or chanting to get in the zone.
Here’s how the day looked in terms of food…
Snack: (unpictured) cucumber slices, dry roasted edamame
Snack: green smoothie
It’s funny—some days are super-routine and then others are more spontaneous. For example, Tuesday involved a morning walk-through-the-park commute to work and then later, a cheese-and-bread-esque picnic dinner, also in the park. For me, it’s all about keeping things interesting.
