Side note: while relaxing this afternoon, I thought I'd give the old pull-up bar a try and managed to get my first strict chin-up! I danced around for about a minute or two to celebrate.
Do you ever have those days when you've got a thousand thoughts/ideas running through your head but can't fully grasp a single one? That's kind of how this week has been thus far. Quite frankly, I'm blaming it on coffee. Spent Monday night at a coworker's Good-bye get-together at a local bar. It really says something when you like hanging out with your coworkers outside of work; trust me, it's miserable when that's not the case. No picture for Tuesday night because it completely slipped my mind but I had a delicious dinner with the ladies from CrossFit Charlottesville at a local burger joint.Ha, all my other friends must be sick of me talking about CrossFit but these girls understand! Wednesdays are always long days but highly productive. It proves my theory that a person is far more productive the busiest days. Spent the evening talking photography with fellow photogs at the Charlottesville Photography Initiative's Small Discussion Groups. For those unfamiliar with the group, it's a great way to converse with other photographers and get inspired to try new things. The feedback you receive is priceless as they actually know what they're talking about. I got home and made myself my favorite dessert as of late: canned coconut milk, frozen berries, and a drizzle of Barlean's Chocolate Raspberry Swirl. Om nom. Ah, sweet Thursdays. Thursdays are my days off and have become my mental rest days (not physical rest days). Went to the gym in the morning to complete Fran for the first time - wowza, that's a killer. I can't believe that there are people who can complete it RX in under two minutes (video). Spent the rest of the day reading, lounging and cooking (obviously). I'm making kale chips about once a week now and I think I've perfected the recipe (after several smoke alarm mishaps). I made two batches this afternoon and somehow managed to devour both by dinner (hey, a girl's gotta eat).
