Gotta milk up that 26 mirror all I can today!
Chuggin’ along this morning! I did some writing, lots of blog-related work and then hit the gym.
Boy is it summer here now! Just the smells to the gym have changed – hot asphalt, hot wood chips, hot honeysuckle. 10* makes a big difference.
I was really excited to go to the gym today, but I wish I could have moved the Stepmill outside. I wonder why they don’t have outdoor machines that are in the shade. If I could run/walk/bike outside everyday I would, but the sun is killer on the skin and with my past foot troubles I can’t do that much back-to-back. I hate going in the AC and shade to exercise when it’s nice out, but I suppose I would have doubled my sweat production had I been out in the heat – esp. in July + August!
I biked there and back (15 minutes each way) and spent 30 minutes climbing stairs. Then 10 doing pullups, dips, jumping lunges and squats.
I took a quick shower but was too sweaty to put on make-up or clothes so I threw on a strapless dress and came down for lunch. We don’t turn on our AC until we can’t stand the humidity any longer, usually around the 4th of July.
Lunch was fabulous!
I chopped up some of our leftover grilled veggies and cut the kernels off of a corn
And then stuffed those with some lemony hummus (LOVE this hummus – will be making more) and spinach on a lightly toasted pita
Plus a peachy peach, which wasn’t nearly as good as it looks. It was crunchy 🙁
And some spinach drizzled with honey and sprinkled with salt
‘Twas the perfect lunch. I only wish the love of my life where here to eat it with me today!
On The Go, On The Ocean
I’ll be doing a handful of guest blog posts for Breathe this summer. Here’s the first about cruise eating: On The Go, On The Ocean.
Highlights of the highlights – It’s funny what you notice in slow motion:
– At around 30 seconds, watch Larbs’ face when my mom puts her hand on her arm. LOL!
-At around 50 seconds you’ll see me lower my bouquet down to my waist. That is twenty-four years of my mom telling me that brides often carry their bouquets too high and it hides their face and dress. Good thing I remembered at the last minute!
I’m off to pack for our overnight to RDU. I’ll see you from my parents’ house tonight (and by Twitter –> KathEats via iPhone until then!)
