I have had a wickedly busy day:

40 minute Workout (20 minute outdoor run + yoga/core work at home)

Target

Marshall’s (got four more plates so now I have a set of 8 plates for $25 bucks!)

Grocery Store

Cooked a great dinner.  To be blogged about tomorrow.

And have just been going, going, going.  And still have to go to my paid job.

Today is the perfect day for the Alphabet.  I saw Gabriela post about it and she got it from Shannon.

Now it’s my turn to give you the Alphabet of Averie with some corresponding food for some of the letters:

From my last post on Algae and Trying Anything Once, it was fun to read what you’ve tried once.  What you’d be willing to try once.  And the things you’re not willing to try, or to try ever again.

And thanks for your thoughts on supplements.  Most of you said you feel similarly to me, that food over supplements any day, but there are situations and needs in which supplements can be helpful.

Questions:

1.  Pick a letter and tell me your answer.

Letters I’d be more curious about…T through Z.   But I’m not picky.

Or pick a few and fill me in.

2. What’s going on for you this weekend?

I’m working, working out, cooking, cleaning, errand-running, parenting.  Oh wait, I do this every day.  The weekend isn’t “special” but that’s ok.  Being busy is a good thing, right?
