Today has been a great day for getting work done, exercising hard and eating well.
I had a lot of writing to do, and was amazingly able to clear my schedule and work from home today. When I have a lot of creative work to do, I do my best from home.
Especially now that I have no TV to distract me, it is quite easy to focus.
I started out my day with a Raw Power Smoothie. Every time it varies a little, depending on my mood and how much activity I’ve been doing.
Today’s recipe called for 2 tbsp Raw Hemp Seeds, 1 tsp Ground Flax Seeds, 1 tsp Maca Root Powder, 1 large handful Goji Berries, 1 tbsp Raw Cacao Beans (ground). Sometimes I’ll add an apple or banana, but skipped it today.
I worked for about 3 hours (8:30-11:30am or so), and got some good editing done on a paper I’m putting together.
I snacked on a few large and fresh organic black mission figs (I love summer!) before heading to a 60minute power yoga class (another benefit of working from home, yoga is right across the street).
After yoga, I had a nice falafel sandwich with some French Fries at a local place, sitting outside in the sunshine.
I went back home, put another solid 4 hours of work in, wrapped up a good draft of the paper and a bunch of e-mails, and then headed out for a 35 minute run around Meydenbaeur Bay in Bellevue.
Right now I’m sipping on a smoothie made from blended over-ripe pineapple and frozen raspberries (I buy the fresh fruit and blend it at home). Interestingly, tastes like liquid cotton candy! Incredibly good.
I’ll probably get another hour of work in, and then put together dinner. That will probably be a few Teff Wraps (a gluten free grain, high in protein) with rice, beans, peppers, avacado, tomatoes and whatever else I can find.
With the weather as beautiful as can be right now, I really can’t ask for anything more. Here is the view looking out over the trees, from my deck:
