It Snowed On Earth Day & Spicy Ramen Noodles

Well, hello there! Is it already Thursday? I am seriously in awe at how fast the weeks and months are going by these days.

I have been picking up more work at the gym, so I guess that explains the decrease in work on the blog front. I still find a few moments in my day to check in with y’all, but it’s just not the same as planning and putting together useful content as often as I aim to do. I hope you all can excuse my lack of workouts and enjoy catching up on life with me until I find a balance again!

So, on that note, here’s what has been going on over in our neck of the woods…

I started my Wednesday with breakfast as soon as possible. I woke up hungry and ready for something substantial as soon as I walked downstairs!

I spent the entire morning working on a freelance article until it was time to get ready to leave for the gym around Noon. I dedicated about three house to working on different projects there, and finally walked over to Quiznos for lunch before an appointment at 3:30.

I was so hungry! I usually get an 8″ sub and save half of it for later, but this time I stuck to the 5″ and opted for sides. Gosh, I forgot how delicious their raspberry lemonade is. I’m sure it has more sugar than five slurpees, but it’s so worth it.

I worked on the computer another hour after my appointment, then decided to complete a workout of my own. I bounced all over the gym using a ton of equipment, and it felt amazing to get back to lifting!

Like clockwork, Scott arrived as soon as I finished to pick me up and take me to the mall. I needed to visit The North Face store for an upcoming campaign, so we decided to go together and make a night of it.

Even though it was freezing, we stopped to admire Mother Earth for a moment on our walk in.

(Happy Earth Day!)

We eventually made it to the store, and it took me a little while to pick out one outfit. Everything was very cute, colorful, and practical! I loved this Women’s Flow Tank, and would have went for it if I was still teaching barre classes in Florida. Instead, I picked out a warm jacket and leggings (duh) to power me through running on the trails, which you’ll see more of next week.

I was ready to eat my arm (again) after we left the store, so we agreed to head home. We were brainstorming what sounded good for dinner, and I was all ready to whip something quick and random for us to enjoy at home, but then… we passed Soho.

A nice hot dinner accompanied by unique Korean hot tea flavors hit the spot!

Scott ordered a sushi roll for us to split, but I wasn’t all about this one. He recalls it as a Tokyo Night Roll, but don’t quote us. He loved it, I just wasn’t a huge fan of the spicy tuna on top.

That’s okay though, I was more than happy with my choice of the Spicy Ramen Noodle Bowl.

I have been craving them lately! I asked for chicken instead of the beef or seafood option, but I’ll probably ask for just the shrimp next time. My nose runs and I have to chug water because of the spiciness every time, but it’s so, so good!

In an attempt to tweak the mango key lime pie recipe I mentioned yesterday, we stopped by a marketplace to re-stock on key limes on the way home. It had been snowing off and on throughout the day, and it was finally coming down hard.

Snowww. In late-April? C’mon Michigan, I thought we were past this nonsense…. just, no.

It’s a good thing my belly was warm from the noodle bowl and tea, right? Sheesh. #whathappenedtospring


All right, I’ve got some projects to get to before I head out to the gym for the day, but I hope to check back in with you guys later on. Have a wonderful Thursday!


Questions of the Day

• What is your favorite meal to turn to when it’s cold outside?

• Is it snowing anywhere close to you? (Please tell me we aren’t the only ones!)
