A lot of Wine Shopping

And the usual: Working & Working out!

Monday: 1.5-mile a.m. run; P90 ab ripper X; work!
Tuesday: 2-mile a.m. run; P90 chest & back during lunch; more work!
Wednesday: P90X: shoulders & arms & ab ripper X a.m.; lots of work; worked late; chiropractor and home to sleep! Sadly, missed book club. :(
Thursday: Busy work day, took lunch break to cook!; after work: tons of catch up time with the family!
Friday: Early treat at Starbuck's (for post workout!); 2-mile run + abs+ legs in the a.m.; busy day of work, work, work with no lunch break. Worked late, got home, had a glass of wine with Austin and passed out!

We also got to see some buddies! Yesterday, I slept in. Slept great. Felt 100%, well, except for my back - off to the chiropractor again for a 10 a.m. appointment, then I spent the day in the kitchen making everything from a slowcooker Asian pork roast to Southwest wontons! Then around 7:30 we headed over to Mel & Jon's! We got to see their beautiful, happy little Madison before her bedtime - so fun -she's growing up so fast! Then we caught up with them - love hanging with them, having some wine and just chilling. Great evening that got late too fast, so we headed home to the puppers and I had another awesome night of rest!

So far today has been all about cleaning! I got WAY into my kitchen cabinets, reorged the pantry and went WILD! We're trying to use the rest of our non-paleo-friendly items so we can try paleo for REAL. Testing went well, but now it's time to deplete our starchy supply - wish us luck! :)

Q: Whatcha up to today?!

Q: What's your favorite bottle of wine? We're stocking our shelves - all recs welcome! (our favorites are cab sav, chard, zin and, my newest favorite, pinot noir)

Q: And a random: what's your favorite protein powder?!
