So I came from the decent 70 degree weather in Seattle, to this. It is HOT (over 90!) and smoky here in Montana! In fact, the moon is even red right now!
This morning started off absolutely how I wanted it to. I snoozed my 6am alarm until 7am but still had amazingly good parking at the pool. And then I was back in the calming arms of the water for a 60 minute lap swim. My body remembered what to do but boy were my muscles crying due to the 1.5 year absence from my favorite workout!
By the time I was done I was so hungry! I stopped by Starbucks and grabbed a iced tall ristretto nonfat latte and enjoyed it with a strawberry Trio bar for breakfast.
The rest of my morning was spent relaxing: cross-stitching, reading, and video games. Eventually I went to the mall and did a little bit of clothes shopping. ^_^ I smartly only went to one store but still ended up spending way too much and opening a new credit card . Oh well…a girl needs her clothes!
For lunch I stopped at Cafe Dolce in the mall and had a half House salad (organic greens with chevre, candied pecans, apples & champagne vinaigrette) and a cup of Tomato Bread soup. I ended up not liking the soup at all, so I just ate the piece of bread and the salad.
Then it was off to my first day of work, helping out my mom’s business. It went fine though around 4pm I had to sneak a baggie of trail mix due to getting so shaky. =( But after work my mum and I went to the farmer’s market and Costco so now I have food!
After food shopping, we ate! Boy were we hungry by then. We had tuna salad with red bell pepper and cherry tomatoes on top of a huge bed of spinach and topped with avocado. On the side, a piece of garlic bread. Mmm I couldn’t eat the whole salad (there was A LOT of tuna) but it was all soo good.
For dessert I had a small bowl of Espresso Chocolate Chip ice cream. It is definitely still summer here! I’m glad I only brought one pair of pants.
Anyway, I’m exhausted and need to get up early again tomorrow for swimming! I think I’m going to lay in bed and watch the Titanic which is now on Netflix Instant! Night!
