I used to be obsessed with showering. I don’t know if it was the fact that I have a super nose, or the fact that I used to leave my house more () or that my mom has a habit of showering before she goes to the gym. But unless I was about to do something REALLY dirty (like play in mud) or head straight to the gym, I always used to shower first thing in the morning (even before hiking or going out on the beach!)
Clearly I have progressed
Today my day just kept going on and I didn’t want to shower because I had a late afternoon workout planned. And I strangely feel less dirty now than I used to.
[Although I will add that I rarely get dressed up without a shower. My general rule is I have to being going places where sweats are appropriate if I go without one]
Cue the afternoon bikeride music:
Matt and I went for an hour ride around town. We chose a route with lots of hills (oh who I am kidding – EVERY STREET here has a hill!) The hour went by so fast I couldn’t believe it!
I ate a date before I left. I wasn’t really hungry but felt I needed a bit of fuel since it had been 3 hours since lunch. Well just as we got out on our ride, hunger hit. The date was not enough and I didn’t have anything with me except water. I charged onward though, and soon enough we were at our final destination.
A free brown ale tasting with Faith + Tate!
I wasn’t planning on particpating (I’m trying to drink a leeeetle less alcohol these days!) but I was so hungry I had to get something in my stomach! Thankfully, beer makes an excellent snack!
Once home we quickly showered (!!) and prepared dinner at the same time. I was about to eat my arm off at this point.
On The Menu
Angel Hair with Roasted Zucchini, Eggplant + Herbed Tofu with Fire Roasted Tomatoes
[Yes, it was THAT zucchini!]
It tasted great because I was very hungry, but my stomach was not the happiest. Lesson learned. Feed it a snack!
Off to relax. Movie? Book? Blogs? The usual evening activities!
