I’ve been wanting to live this day for a long, long time.
Walking. Chic town. Great workout. Lunch out. Coffee (tea) shop. Haircut. Sunshine!
If only it were 85* it would have been the perfect day!
Here is me walking the 2ish miles to my gym this morning. Followed by a smashing Body Pump class! I made it through 2 medium and 1 small weights on each side with biceps. Definitely, definitely getting stronger. It was nearly impossible! I ended by working up a sweat on the stairmaster for 15 minutes (Body Pump doesn’t make me sweat and I wanted to be sweaty when I showered in the women’s locker room!)
After some jock time showering, I headed downtown for lunch!
Ladies and Gentleman, may I present:
Charlottesville, A to Z
And the grande finale…
I had such fun with that little project!
I ended up at the Blue Ridge Country Store for lunch – which boasts a Whole Foods-like salad bar right downtown!
The only problem is there is no seating, so I set on a mission to find some kind of table. I ended up scoring a nice picnic table in the Pavilion! In the summertime the city sets up lots of tables in there for businesspeople to enjoy lunch al fresco. Have I mentioned that the city also provides free wifi throughout the whole downtown? LOVE this place!
Lunch was cold. I needed the sun on me to feel warm!
My salad was great – lots of noodles, beans and veggies.
Plus a coconut covered date for dessert!
I lugged my backpack all around town. Luckily my gym offers towel service (for $2 a use) that I splurged on today so I wouldn’t also have a wet towel. My bag contained my netbook, camera, gym clothes, coat, wallet, makeup, etc. It was quite heavy!
I had an hour to kill before my haircut, so I went to the Tea Bazaar for a big pot of peppermint tea and to get some work done. I spent an hour JUST dealing with emails!
Then it was haircut time! I went to
Salad Salon Druknya downtown. Loved working with Shannon!
FIVE INCHES GONE!!!!!!!!!
I prefer my hair long, but it was getting IMPOSSIBLE to control!!! Shampooing was hard. Running without forming a rat’s nest was hard. Life was hard. So I said goodbye. See you next year long hair.
I do like the new do a lot!
So does Tiger.
But he does not like to snuggle!
[Now I am covered in human and cat hair]
Sorry Tiger, if you don’t want to snuggle you can’t come inside!
