week in review: wherein I try to hide my lack of accomplishments

Linking up with Meghan at Clean Eats, Fast Feets for the Week in Review. Once again looking at my planner to jog my memory… Last week, I: -went for a killer 6-mile hike at some new-to-me trails. Was expecting to hike 1 1/2-2 hours, but we actually hiked for 3 hours over some pretty tough… Continue reading week in review: wherein I try to hide my lack of accomplishments

Besides, I’m usually just cooking for me, so there’s not point in putting out a lot of effort for every meal. I try to meal prep for the week on Sundays.

weekly update

I missed the Week in Review link-up at Clean Eats, Fast Feets yesterday, because I spent a lot of the weekend trying to rest and recover from last week. I worked 5 days straight.
