SATC Trifecta Minus One

Heyyy guys! Happy Saturday to a long weekend:)

Off to a good start? I hope so 😀

Yesterday after I trained my first client, I headed to the hills. For the first time, I’m implementing hill repeats into my training plan. Now, central Illinois is known to be pretty flat. And filled with corn, but that’s beside the point. However, there’s one street in particular that is 1.3 miles of constant rolling hills. Why not utilize this training tool? I parked my car at the beginning of the street, ran to the end, and ran back. Training run done! It was only about 2.5 miles, but it was tough, and I had a lot of other stuff to do.

After getting some groceries and some new running shoes (finally!!!) I had some post-run breakfast:


Found this little Crofter’s guy at the store, I had to try it out:


Atop some tufutti cream cheese, it was marvelous.



Now I want to try them ALL!

Excited for my newfound “free” time, I booked a hair cut in the middle of the day on a Friday. (I say free, because somehow the hours go by SO fast and I don’t get as much done as I’d like. I used to scoff at people who didn’t work f/t and said that. How dare they!)

"Before shot:”


I know, I know, my hair’s up so you can’t really see the cut. But that’s the point…


…my hair is ALWAYS UP! And..everyone knows before shots are taken in bad lighting and with no makeup :-p

Had a green monster on the way to the salon:


While sitting in the chair talking to my stylist, something came over me. I wasn’t getting highlights, just a cut. And I wanted a change.

A big change.


Freaking out on the inside.


Holy crap! At least this one has good lighting and I’m wearing some concealer 😉

Trying to keep my cool, I made a cold bean salad for lunch:


Pintos, blacks, edamames, chopped spinach, and portabella mushrooms, tossed in a balsamic + EVOO dressing.


Then amidst my mini hair freakout, BFF, Destiny arrived!



And as always, came with goodies:


I had to run and train a client really quick, but as soon as I got back, we drank some Trader Joe’s, pre-Sex and the City 2 wine:




And we had a moment or two:

It was just perfect



Thinking, man, if Kim were here, the SATC trifecta would be complete. Kim is the other third to our DKP (Destiny, Kim, Paige) trifecta. Duh. Alas, she is in Afghanistan, being brave and fighting for our country. Thank you Kim! Check out her blog and journey over in Afghanistan.

After packing necessary snacks, we were off to the movies.



Chocolate covered banana chips, which I’m pretty sure we ate half of.


The movie was pretty good. I won’t spoil it for anyone, but it lived up to my expectations. I’m kinda hoping they don’t make a third one, though. No trifecta here. Not that I don’t love SATC, and not that I wouldn’t see it. I just don’t want them to ruin it. If they make a third one…why not have just kept the series going, ya know?

Back at the casa, we chowed down and drank more wine.


Plus a veggie Subway sandwich that missed the camera’s eye.

This morning, we arose and drank some coffee and ate some overnight over 20 minutes oats:


Niko loves Destiny.

Well, I’m off to go work for a few hours, and then help the husband with our landscaping project! It’s a PERFECT day here. Low 80’s and sunny as can be! Gotta get out and enjoy it 😀

Are you doing any yard projects or cooking out for the long weekend (if you have one)? We’ll be working in the yard alllll weekend long. Weather permitting. Hooray!

  1. I think your hair is cute for a change! Young people like you look good in long or short hair. When women get older, they really need to wear it short, unless they look like Raquel Welch. Enjoy the change, and it will grow.
    Our pool is open today:-) I guess as soon as the heater warms it to the 80’s, (it’s already 76) we will be inviting badminton players. Wanna come after all that yard work?

  2. Yo! So what running shoes did you get??
