Be Running

I had a lazy Sunday yesterday. I got back from Venezuela and had no interest in writing. I had the post vacation blues all day – you know, when you’re kinda lonely and you think your life at home is SO boring after having such a great vacation, so all you want to do is pout.

So yesterday I pouted, chopped up vegetables, and made a big ol tub of quinoa for the week. I like to chop up vegetables and make quinoa on Sundays so then I don’t come home and graze in my kitchen after work during the week. If I have the healthy stuff washed and chopped up, it’s harder to avoid.

I like to prepare. It’s the same reason why I slept in my bathing suit in the summer when I was little. I like to hit the ground running.


I love that.

After all my chopping, a short run in the eve, and my attitude adjustment, I still couldn’t muster up the energy to write yesterday. So I’ll tell you about my fishing trip and show you some pics later this week.

Oh, in the mean time, check out this article I wrote for Moxy Magazine – “For women with big cojones… And bigger dreams.”  For real, that’s their tag line. I wrote about why my finance career is a joke.

And Sustainable Personal Finance included my post on How Much Money You Should Be Saving in the Best of Money Carnival over Memorial Day. If you’re interested in sustainability (I’m not really, I just have friends who are and I went to Berkeley so I pretend like I am), check out their blog, they have some good tips.

Have a great day today, and remember, if you rolled out of bed today at 7:30, your competitors are already having lunch.


Be Running!

    Such a great pick-me-up this morning. Love the Lion/Gazelle, the image of this little girl sleeping in her speedo so she is all ready for Junior Lifeguards in the morning and just the honest dose of reality you always give your readers. Where was this last Monday when I was returning from vacation? It would have done me some good ;-)


    PS: Great article in Moxy.

      I think I got the sleeping in bathing suit idea from you when we were little. Maybe I should sleep in my work clothes now.

    My message didn’t go through DAMNIT!!.

    I replied.. oh well..

    I was so lazy as a child.. my gosh, I can’t believe I slept in a bathing suit. Especially with the polluted bay water in it as you can imagine.

    I have a blog.. You wont learn anything from about finance but you will learn that a surrogate might be a great option. I should call it Pregnant and Whining..

    Dinner soon in our bathing suits?
