I was very excited to wake up this morning because today was the day I headed to Seattle! I’m really hoping that this vacation is unlike my California one meaning that I don’t get freakishly ill.
I had a few things to get done today in order to leave on time.
First off: Breakfast. Stonyfield Low Fat Plain yogurt with flax, almond butter, Kashi Golean Crunch, a pluot, and a sprinkle of dried blueberries. Holy yum. I’m so over Quaker Oatmeal Squares. Kashi Golean Crunch is where it’s at.
I then got my butt up and on my stationary bike for 35 minutes. Yes it wasn’t that long, but I got a good sweat and felt better about my day. Summer vacation is almost over, and then intense exercise will be in full swing. ^_^
I then finished packing for my trip and met Chase at the mall for our last meal together. He wanted Noodle Express but since I knew I wanted a fresh salad, I called ahead and had a Teriyaki Tofu Salad ready and waiting for me at the Mustard Seed. It didn’t look like much but it was super tasty and BIG! I couldn’t finish it all.
I then dropped him back off at work and kissed him goodbye.
Finally it was time for my dad to drop me off at the airport where I had over an hour wait for my flight. While I waited I got peckish and tried to eat this Luna Protein Mint Chocolate Chip bar. Wow, was it bad. Chalky and tasted like chocolate mint toothpaste, I ate about half before tossing the rest.
We boarded about a half hour late, but I forgive Alaska due to their complimentary red wine! I enjoyed a glass and a snack mix since the fail protein bar really upset my stomach. It made it really bloated and painful. =/ Perhaps the type of soy in it? The snacks didn’t really help my tummy, but the wine sure made me feel better. ^_^ Drinking while flying is seriously the best way to do it.
So the main reason I came to Seattle was to visit my very old and dear friend Del! She has lived in Seattle for the last 5 years but is now moving on to California. I had to get the scoop on Seattle before she left though since Chase and I will hopefully be moving here next year.
HUGE portions of whole wheat rotini in a spicy zesty tomato sauce and some sautéed tofu and broccoli in garlic and soy sauce. It was delicious and I surprised myself by eating the entire plate.
For the rest of the evening we sipped wine and marathoned Farscape. ^_^ Did I mention Del and I met when we were 12 through our love of shows like Xena, Buffy, and sci-fi’s?
We should be going out and exploring Seattle tomorrow so hopefully there will be lots of great photos so stay tuned!
