It was a Pbttttth week. First my knee felt weird. I poked at it suspiciously. I bailed on the track workout I had planned and did something easier instead. Then Tuesday I didn’t get any sleep. None. It was a late night to begin with and then I just stared at the clock. “10pm I should be in bed. 12:30am I am so wound up I’m never going to sleep. 2 am, I’m going to fall asleep now. 3 am, I give up. 4 am, I can get an hour of sleep now. It’ll be like a nap. 4:40am nope, might as well make eggs for breakfast.” So Wednesday’s workout was shot. Thursday I ended up working all day. Like 8am to 9pm – with only short breaks between things. Maybe I could have squeezed some lifting in – but at this point I had thrown in the towel on the week. But Friday I redeemed myself. I. Did. My. Workout. YES!!!! I have a great record of not doing long swims on my own. I have made workouts and then talked myself out of it. “Eh, that’s a bad set. I’m bored, that’s enough.” So this time…. I designed my workout based on one I coach for the Masters Swim Practice. Then I laminated the workout. I got a special dry erase crayon. I told people I was going to do it. And I did it! I was so proud. Which is good because Saturday morning I was pinned to my bed. Sleep weighed me down so heavily it felt impossible to get up. Sometimes things don’t go as planned. I got only one solid workout in this week. The rest were kinda “Meh.” Sometimes one good one is enough. There will be others.

Kym's InstagramOh my heart 💗 so fucking gorgeous. Such beautiful culture, devotion, athleticism, and legacy. What strength and love! God damn #equalpay is so overdue 😤 equal being proportionate to their dominance. - - #womensworldcup #inspiringwomen #inspiringathletesLast nights cooking experiment; inspired by Ruby’s and Frances’ picnic pies in the Great British Bake Off. Took forever both to brainstorm and cook, but it was worth it. I wanted something vegetarian🥬, colorful 🌈, and delicious 🤤 . . Layers are 1) for earthy umami flavor: puréed dried shiitake, red kidney beans, little garlic powder and olive oil 2) for earthy tangy flavor: pickled beats, red onion, and red cabbage 3) for sweet: lemon honey polenta 4) for fresh/herbal: green beans, spinach, and a lot of parsley. Mozzarella and parmesan between layers and wrapped in a hot water crust (because it’s easy and indestructible) if I can make it again in less time and maybe measure more stuff I’ll do a blog post on it.This 5 day old goat 🐐 fell asleep on me! I’m so happy 💗 I also had chocolate goat ice cream with glitter and puppy chow from @mnicecream 😋I ❤️ new office supplies. Ordered this beautiful little easel whiteboard and I couldn’t help but write on it right away. It’s GLASS and so much nicer than those flimsy little plastic and cardboard things. Oh the small victories of the #selfemployed now if only people would come to our stuff... - It’s Quartet brand ordered from Amazon for under $20, for any other whiteboard fans out there. - - #workathome #entrapanuer #womanentrepreneur #shecancoach
