One of my favorite things about the weekends is turning activities + todos into a workout. I didn’t really have much planned that could be one, so I invented things.
First I went on a walk while I called my mom and grandparents to chat. I ended up walking for over an hour, and it was glorious.
Then I decided I should run an errand by bike, so I biked to Target + Old Navy! It’s about 2.5 miles away and not in the prettiest strip of town, so I don’t bike there often. But today it was great. I went to Old Navy first to look for $15 dresses (a big sale) but came home with only a sports top on sale. I ran between the two stores to get my HR up. (Probably looked funny with my bookbag bouncing on my shoulders). I picked up some necessities at Target, including new headbands (mine broke in Bermuda) and my very first OPI!!! In the color Royal Flush Blush.
I wasn’t really that hungry for lunch around 2:30 but I knew it was time to eat deep down. I decided on a Latin dish -
- 1/2 cup pinto beans
- 1/2 cup cooked millet
- 1/3 cup ea. chopped green pepper and cuc
- 1/2 cup pineapple
- 1/4 cup avocado
- Taste salsa and plain yogurt
- Salt, pepper, red pepper flakes, sriratcha
I heated it all up in the microwave.
I do NOT like salsa because of the onions, but after that delicious Newman’s Own Peach, I decided to try another salsa from them. BLECH – the regular was gross and onion-y.
With a seltzer
I wanted a little something sweet to get rid of the onions, so I checked my sweet drawer and remembered that Mara had sent me two raw cookies. I tried the Chocolate Macaroon. Delish!
In just a few hours we are biking to Kate + Nate’s, where we’ll depart for a night out on the town with a bunch of our friends. We’re also having a slumber party with Gilbert, so I’m not sure if I’ll be blogging this evening or not. Most likely, yes, but if you don’t hear from me, something with my laptop went wrong or I decided not to take it. I’ll be back in the AM with a full report of the evening and group oatmeal buffet!
