It’s hot out. I’ve done a lot of walking in the sun lately.
So I decided I needed to get my butt to the pool this morning! I’m trying to swim once a week, but if you read this post, you’d know that I struggle to find the motivation to pack up all my gear and actually go to the pool. Luckily my gym is right by the City Market and so it made for a convenient stop by on the way there and back – and just enough time to get super sweaty and ready for the cold water!
My swim was good. As a compromise/reward for going, I decided I only have to do 26 minutes of laps instead of a longer 45 minutes. You’d think once I was there I should put in more time, but it’s part of the deal. I actually swam for 28 minutes straight today and mixed up my strokes. Not surprisingly, doing different strokes made the time go by so much faster.
ALSO – I HAD THE POOL TO MYSELF!! I absolutely hate sharing lanes and when I arrived there was not a soul in there other than the lifeguard. I might have to make this Saturday morning swim thing a (10-weeks-to-go) habit.
I showered there and went back to the market to say hello to Matt and pick up our weekly produce. I took him a No Bull Burger for lunch!
And picked up all of this great loot – love summer veg! And it was so great not to have to think about greens because we have them already growing here. Hopefully sooner rather than later we will also have okra and tomatoes!
Hardest workout of the day: walking home with all that on my arm, in the sun, PLUS beef, chicken and No Bulls on my back!
I snacked on a few samples at the market and then had lunch at 12:30.
Gobbled down a goblet of blackberries – huge and plump!
And ate some millet salad – topped with greek yogurt and almonds! Greek on greek
It was nice to have a chilled lunch waiting
Water with lemonade
Somehow I am wiped out from my morning and am resisting a nap. Although that is on my baby to-do list…..so perhaps it is necessary…
