Oof, being so close to graduating, all I really want to do come January is TRAVEL! Especially after finding some shots from last spring in Amsterdam on my phone…
Oh, to be able to live in such a beautiful, bicycle-friendly city!
I think my top three dream destinations at the moment are:
1. Austin, TX for South by Southwest!
2. Peru, to do some serious hiking and work on mi espanol
3. Scandinavia (mainly Stockholm, Bergen, and Copenhagen) – would also love to return to Amsterdam as one week was far too brief a stay.
In food-related news, I have been enjoying the delightfully fatty combination of hummus + egg + avocado on toast for brekkie. It’s like the Sra version of those awful fast food “breakfast sandwiches”!
In trying to continue the good habit of cooking a large vat of legumes + veggies + grains on Sunday to pack for lunch during the week, this rather tasty navy bean-sweet potato curry with red quinoa was born:
My nailpolish kind of matches the zucchini…
SO GOOD. I would definitely qualify this as healthy comfort food!
On the fitness front, I am basically just doing a lot of yoga in addition to walking + cycling everywhere (except during torrential downpours…in which case I will begrudgingly ride the bus).
I am happy with my upper-body strength progression – the chaturangas are feeling a lot more natural and I’m doing many front, back, and side planks, as well as fun gymnastics inspired back bends and such. I also have been working on my flexibility ’cause I’d like to do some dance classes this winter and I don’t want to embarrass myself (too much). Got my right splits back already 🙂
