You Want a Pita Me?

Pita Jungle

Life is exciting and hectic this week; I’m not crafting, cooking or gardening. Rather, I am sweating like a maniac in Bikram each morning, eating gobs of good food I’m not preparing for the rest of the day, and trying to maintain sanity. Today: lunch at one of my local faves — Pita Jungle.

Their gazpacho is as fantastic as the hummus trio. (I may go there often enough to know several of the servers by name.)

The new job is going very well, although I’m on the farthest left-hand side of the learning bell curve. There is so much to understand and accomplish; I am very much in my element working at a university. A bit premature to make sweeping statements, but truly I like this position thus far.

Tomorrow morning is the Bikram weigh in! Are you nervous? I am. I have taken this week by the horns professionally and just barely made it through physically. Apparently one of the side effects they don’t mention about regular Bikram practice is “not needing to sleep as much.” Read: insomnia. I’ve been getting 3-4 per night, which is far from my normal — feel free to roll your eyes at my infantile sleeping needs — 9-10 hours. I love sleep. I like Bikram. We’ll see how long these two decide to bicker.

Hasta,

~K

  1. Good luck with the weigh-in tomorrow. As much as I’d like to say that it’s not important what the scale says, It’d make me a pretty big hypocrite since I battle it out with that digital beast on a weekly basis myself.

    I’m sure, however, that you’ll like what you see.

    And I’m so glad to hear that you’re work-shaped puzzle pieces are fitting together πŸ™‚

  2. I just had a giggle at the title of you post. My 3 year old thinks it’s, “You want a pizza me?”

    Good luck with that weigh in! I don’t even own a scale b/c I’m too scared of it! ha

  3. Lord have mercy, PITA JUNGLE. I could look at photos of their food all day and be satisfied. Hoo boy, I love that place.

    I hope you’re kicking ass and taking names this week, at work AND hot yoga. You rock.

  5. SERIOUSLY? It causes less sleep. That is weird. I’d break up with it, pronto. Good luck on your weigh in. But don’t get mired down in the details… like numbers on the scale. I’m sure you look great. How do you feel?
    I’m so happy for you at your new job. I can see how academia suits you.

  6. Congrats on the job, good luck on the weigh-in, and I love Pita Jungle, too!

  7. What’s the job, exactly? Don’t know if you remember but I recently started back to grad school (at 39) to get a masters in Student Affairs Administration. I LOVE a university setting. It feels so positive–all that energy, growth, newness. I would bet you’re going to love it too!

  8. Glad you love the new job.

    I am also a 9-10 hour girl. πŸ˜‰

  9. Re: pitas. Next time I visit, we are going THERE.
    Re: job. If it would help you to have my work email to discuss working at a university, let me know. πŸ™‚
    Re: sleep. Insomnia seriously sucks. I’m an 8-hour minimum gal myself and anything less leaves me CRANKY and MUNCHY. Maybe why you’re enjoying so much food.

  10. Hey!! “They” say we need ‘at least’ 8 – 9 hrs/day — heed what “they” say!!
    Congrats on your dedication to fitness, excitement with new job and the lunching on the most d e l i c i o u s looking hummas I’ve seen lately (and I see it alot)!
    And remember, no matter what ye ole scale says, I’d do serious injury to be as fit, strong and slender as you are now!!!!!!! (and tall, don’t forget the tall!!!!)
