Baking these croissants is the only reason to ever wake up at 6:00 am (and be excited about it) on a Monday morning.
I ate about a million of these during today’s trail run.

Three things that keep me busy these days:
1. I’m currently obsessed with baking naturally-leavened breads. It’s a pain in the ass, takes forever, but damn these loaves taste good. Especially with homemade meatballs as pictured above.
2. I’m upgrading to a commercial coffee roaster in the next few months. Big investment. But I have enough saved to purchase one with cash, which is always better than financing. Now I have to find a place in town to set it up and start cranking out coffee. I might also do a monthly coffee subscription, so if interested, let me know and I will keep you updated.
3. Last, but not least, running.
All those people protesting the Central American immigrants coming to seek refuge in the US seem to have forgotten that the only reason they are here is because their immigrant ancestors also came here seeking a better life.
Unless you are a Native American, you are 100% a descendant of immigrants. Have people forgotten this?
As you all know, my last three weeks working long hours and weekends led to virtually no working out. I may have gone running and cycling once that whole time. But I ate as if I was still training for a marathon, which led to about 4-5 lbs of weight gain. So in addition to doing my usual aerobic workouts (running and cycling), I decided to start doing resistance training to help burn all that flab off.
Monday I started the free trial of DailyBurn to try it out. I did a 45 minute Tabata workout that left my legs and arms feeling useless for the rest of the night. And yesterday I felt fine. But that DOMS caught up to me with a vengeance today. I seriously considered calling in sick because I could barely move while I was still laying in bed. I had to roll myself out of bed this morning because sitting up was out of the question. And eve simple things like walking or sitting down are a long, painful process. I can feel the individual muscles contracting and aching every time I move.
It hurts SO bad.
And I just finished the project that has consumed my life for the past month or so.
This project is the reason I didn’t run Lake Placid. It’s the reason I’ve worked every weekend for the past 2 weeks (including 4th of July). And it’s the reason I’ve been working 70+ hour weeks. Oh, and also the reason I haven’t had time to work at all in over a week.
I’m exhausted and burned out. And I don’t get paid enough for this shit. Why did I ever pick architecture?
Not much happening in my world the past few weeks except I’m super busy at work thanks to a project deadline. So I’ve had no weekends the past few weeks, I’m working 12+ hour days, and I don’t have time to run or bike.
On the plus side, I’m starting to curl my mustache. Because why not?

This was a historical and monumental feat in the world of aerodynamics, one of the greatest things I’ve ever seen
I hardly ever reblog posts, but I just had to because this is totally something I would do.
