I love the begginings of months, it always feels like a clean slate when I turn the page on the calendar!  My June horoscope emphasized the importance of exercise starting in June of this year and lasting June of next year.  I’m going to take that as a sign that a) I need to step up my half-marathon training and b) I’ve been seriously neglecting my Bikram yoga routine and that needs to stop.  So, that’s that if my horoscope says it it must be true.

I love Sundays.  Sundays are my domestic days which usually today consisted of grocery shopping, doing laundry, cooking, cleaning strolling around Brooklyn.  So I didn’t hit the gym, but I definitely feel like I’ve been moving since I woke up. How’s that for justifying not checking off “gym” on my to do list.

i’m about head over to my improv class.  I’m nervous, more nervous that it’ll be way too rudementary and I’ll feel like it was a waste of money than scared about putting myself out there and being silly in front of strangers.  But seriously, I’m a professional and need to just suck it up.


Smoothie with soy milk, banana and frozen strawberries


Salad with lettuce, carrot, avocado, feta, grilled chicken and lite vinaigrette

I’ve got some spicey black and red bean soup cooking now that will be my lunch for this week.  I love my slow cooker.

Oh and here it is. . .

I didn’t realize until I tasted it that I read the recipe wrong.  The recipe called for 2 teaspoons of sugar, I read 2 tablespoons, so the soup is a little on the sweet side.  I’m hoping that that will balance out the spice.  How’s that for looking on the bright side?


The soup, obviously.
