I’ve got some serious weekend energy boiling up!! It is the BEST weekend of the year (second, perhaps, to Christmas Eve, which I also absolutely love) because it’s my BIRTHDAY weekend!! My actual birthday is Tuesday Oct 26, but of course I extend the celebration, month long
We have a full house of guests coming and more locals to celebrate with!!
I hit up the POOL at noon. Some days swimming just clicks. And sometimes I like to completely zone out and just use the clock as my guide. Other times I like to count and make my goal laps.
Today I did 26 laps (52 lengths) as fast as I could. I can feel it a little in my shoulders now! I didn’t stop except to squirt in water a few times (my throat gets so dry when I swim!) It was an awesome swim – perhaps my best ever!!
I showered at the gym, so the bike ride home was HOT. Even though it’s only 57* out there, I think I was overdressed.
I had a huge salad full of all of the leftovers in the fridge plus greens from the garden!
- Green bean + mushroom saute
- Lima beans
- Olive oil
- Sea salt
- Bleu cheese
Plus some more of those crunchy sweet tater chips on the side! I probably had another serving this size from the bag as I prepared lunch ; )
Matt’s making crackers for the weekend, and I have errands to run and then a big trip to Richmond to pick up MEGHANN!
