Oh yeah, don't forget to ENTER MY BIRTHDAY GIVEAWAY!
My birthday started off like a normal Monday with TurboKick. My instructor-friend brought me a present and included a song with the lines "It's your birthday chick."
I immediately put in the CD and did learn a few new to-do list dos. I'll share later.
My breakfast, that I ate before and after class, because it was very filling. Great #powermeal from Powercakes.
I added a green juice in for snack before heading over to see my aunt.
Oh yes, I even had work. Just for 4 hours though.
Lunch at Bristol Farms: seafood salad with Cabo chips and 2 bottles of Bai.
After work, I was having my shrimp rolls for dinner and my mom surprised me with a mini fruit tart. The fruit was good (duh). The tart underneath had a pie crust but a cake "filling."
My cousins make me a card.
For the finale, I met up with my friend Peter and some old high school buddies. I've known Peter since first grade, and he'll probably have to don a dress for my wedding. :)
We headed to Goat Hill Tavern. He told me about the place, and I was pleasantly surprised. Lots of people on a Monday night.
One of the guys spotted another person from high school. At first, the rest of us couldn't place him until we realized Peter and I had known the guy since elementary school. The crazy part was that he remembered us quickly. Of course shots were had to celebrate this.
All together, I had 3 shots of whiskey and a beer before gettting guac and chips to sober us up. Sleep was easy last night.
I work today 11-8 and will likely be moving things. Let me be upfront and just say a workout isn't happening today. Last time I went to work (pre-big event), I was exhausted from hoping in and out of cabinets. I can't wait until we are done setting up (Thursday).
Okay so it's decided: working isn't quite a workout. I sweat but not to the extent I would normally. However, the hour or so that we do spend working out is just a small portion of the day. A strenuous job aside, I try to find other ways to stay active on days off.
- Hiking or walking with a Meetup group
- At home yoga videos
- Walking to the store or gym
- Getting an awesome treadmill desk - my dream!
- Squatting when reading because I can't walk and read a book :)
What activities do you look forward to during the summer?
