Well, let's talk about yesterday. I did not like the time change - not one bit. I couldn't fall asleep until past midnight on Sunday (largely due to talking to an old friend who just so happens to be two time zones away), and 6 a.m. came way too soon. So, I jump-started the day the best way I know how: with a trip to Bruegger's.
I wish I hated that place.
I know I don't have to tell you (or the Bruegger's employees) my order anymore, but humor me: a skinny zesty egg-white sandwich on five-grain everything plus a large hazelnut coffee. K thanks.
As usual, that hearty breakfast kept me stuffed until lunch - when I finished off my calamari bibimbab.
Side note #1: seafood dishes are generally much tastier the day they are prepared.
Side note #2: there wasn't a whole lot of protein in that bibimbab, which caused me to be quite hungry later that afternoon.
Crossfit yesterday was seemingly easy. We had a 21-15-9 set of handstand push-ups (and by "handstand push-ups" I really mean normal "girl push-ups"), triceps dips, and regular push-ups (again, by "regular push-ups" I really mean normal "girl push-ups").
Initially, we thought that we only had to do 21 handstand push-ups, 15 triceps dips, and 9 normal push-ups. Then we realized that no, we had to do 21 of all three, 15 of all three, and nine of all three.
(But that's pretty funny, right?!)
After working out with S-man, I headed to Gray's Lake for a four-miler. It was absolutely gorgeous outside - but quite windy!
|Clearly I need to start bringing my actual camera - not just the crappy one on my iPhone.|
Let me tell you what makes running wayyyyyyyy enjoyable: "racing" a six-year-old who's on training wheels. We were jetting around the lake like crazy people.
And, I ended up doing about 4.8 miles in a little less than an hour.
Also, we saw bald eagles. Check this out:
|Seriously: a real camera would come in very handy in times like these.|
I swear it was a lot closer in real life.
Fun fact: bald eagles' nests are approximately five feet in diameter. I demonstrated this to the six-year-old by lying down in the middle of the trail and telling him that the nest would stretch from my nose to my toes. He was pretty impressed. Or at least a good actor.
For dinner last night, I whipped up a double batch of white chili. A good friend had a loss in the family, so I brought him dinner and kept two servings for myself. It was, as usual, delicious.
And that, my friends, was yesterday.
Stay tuned, and in another couple of hours you can see a recap of today. It will be - of course - hugely entertaining.
