Hey everyone! Thanks so much for your good vibes and wonderful tips on the blood work <3 Too bad THIS got in the way:
A breakfast cookie? Yup. I made one with vegan chocolate chips to bribe myself to be brave when I got to flight medicine, only to find out that you can’t have blood taken if you’ve just eaten. Whoops :/ So I have to go back—probably tomorrow. Please save those good vibes for me!
When I got back to the casa, I still had cookies on my mind.
So I put on the coolest apron I’ve ever seen (thank you POM friends)!
Kinda reminds me of my shenanigans in the POM orchard….
Then I got cooking! Don’t you just love when recipes appear in your brain?!?

Now, get away from the computer- go make some! I might add in an additional T of oil because they were a tiny bit dry (but I also overbaked them by a minute, so you should be bueno).
I’m off to pump some crazy iron then train some clients

Something to do: Take 5 minutes today to sit cross-legged or lay down, play some music, and clear your mind. You’ll be amazed at how serene you feel when the 5 minutes are up
