Year Three, Day 97: A Hooping Compilation and Newton's First Law of Motion




I am woman, hear me roar! I found a wonderful quick, nutritious breakfast that I can make at work. It is a breakfast in a mug recipe. The internet is overflowing with them. I used this one this morning:

But instead of bacon, I added chopped Aidell's Italian chicken sausage. I also used Egg Beaters instead of a real egg. It turned out so yummy - but next time I will use real egg. Oh, also I did not use cooking spray, I just rubbed butter on the inside of my mug.

Took less than 5 minutes to prepare, and I can eat it at my desk!

I do love convenience. Especially if it's healthy!

AND...

I figured out how to connect excerpts from the last 61 days of hooping into one compilation!

Here it is:



I see a little improvement. I definitely need to take my whole life up to the next level!

I plan on it!

I started yesterday. After my last student, I stopped for a light dinner at one of my favorite little family owned restaurants, Tom's Restarant on SE Division and SE Cesar Chavez Blvd.  I had liver and onions with a salad and veggies. No bread. No croutons!

Then I hopped on the bus and went to the gym. Did a short cardio session on the treadmill and worked my triceps, and add a few crunches in for good measure. I almost bailed and just went home after dinner. It was getting late.  But it wasn't that much more time out of my evening to stop at the gym. And I do like the gym at night. I just came home and crawled straight in bed. Read a bit and then passed out. Slept the whole night.

Like a log!

Then I popped up and did a nice hoop session.

I never studied physics, but I do remember Newton's "first law of motion":

"An object at rest stays at rest and an object in motion stays in motion with the same speed and in the same direction unless acted upon by an unbalanced force."

I think this body will stay in motion!

On that note, happy Thursday!

Talk to you tomorrow.

Love in motion,

Zita

Year Three, Day 134: The Charmed Life of a Commuting Grandma

I just discovered that the Starbucks at Cascades Station stays open until 10:00 p.m. every night.

Just when I was wanting to pinch myself to make sure I wasn't dreaming. Being a commuting grandma really is not that difficult. Actually, my life pretty much rocks right now!

Today has been a very good day. And I had maybe 3 hours of solid sleep last night. The Burrito has decided she likes to sleep cuddled in the arms of her Great Grandma Blanche or Grandma Zita during the day. Or snuggled safe in her infant seat while her mom, grandma and great grandma go out to lunch, do laundry and go shopping.

I warned my daughter that the
Baby Burrito needed some awake time yesterday. Or else we would pay for it in the evening. But getting so much done with a snoozing baby in tow was so freeing. Especially since Baby Burrito's dad is elk hunting all weekend.

We finally roused her for a bath, diaper change and piano lesson early afternoon.

Baby Burrito had a fantastic first piano lesson. At…

Year Three, Day 236: Memories of Food

Well, I ALMOST got on the treadmill today!

I planned on it. I actually had a very productive morning. I woke up super early, but it was cold and I knew I would be exhausted if I actually got vertical at 4:47 a.m. So I stayed in bed and checked emails, and played a few games of Words with Friends.

I drifted off again, and finally got out of bed at 9:30.  I did my prayer, journaling, bible study and reading from my Joyce Meyer Book. (The Mind Connection). I have only one more chapter to read and I am finished with the book! At which point, I plan on going back to the beginning and rereading the whole thing. It is that good!

I did my morning hoop. It was a crisp, cold morning, but no wind. I had a good workout. Then I practiced a bit of piano and did some piano lesson planning for my students.

I had planned on grabbing a quick lunch and then hopping on the Max to the gym where I would hop on the treadmill, hop in the jacuzzi and then grab a quick shower before my students.

The bus that g…

Year Three, Day 261: The Belligerent Man, The Bus Driver, and the Woman in a Poncho

I just had a most entertaining bus ride!

I had just gotten of the Max at the Hollywood Transit Center. I was coming down the steps, when I saw the #75 to Milwaukie entering the parking lot. That was my transfer bus!  I didn't want to miss it, because at this time of day, it might be a 20 minute wait until the next one.

I had just come from a lovely sushi lunch with  my daughter and Baby Gracie at Cascades Station.

The plan was for me to teach my piano students and then return to Vancouver tonight. My daughter has much work to do at home and we all know that working at home with a 5 month old baby is a bit of an oxymoron!

Anyway, I hurried down the stairs, being very mindful. The steps were slippery in the Portland drizzle. Slipping and falling would kind of put a cramp in my day.

I slowed down when I noticed there was a long line of passengers waiting to board. At the end of the line was an older, distinguished looking gentleman.  He was wearing a long overcoat and hat.  He nodded…
