I think it’s no coincidence that summer is my favorite season. I was born in June and have always felt my best in the heat. This week I have really accepted that I’m a Warm Weather Gal and have taken note of my sunny mood, positivity, and plethora of [sometimes really bad] jokes and smart remarks. Hooray for summer!
I got my daily dose of vitamin D and then went to the gym to do some cardio. I tackled 45 minutes on the elliptical and 15 on the spin bike. My original goal was to just cool down on it but I got distracted by an email which I read while spinning. Last night friends came over for wine and dinner on the roof. The temperature was perfect, the conversation and wine flowing, and we had great girls time. It was fun to toast to Mrs. Brotman now that wedding festivities are complete!
By some small miracle I managed to sleep in and get 10 hours of sleep. It was glorious! Waking up 2 hours later than I have in 2 weeks meant I was starving and had a quick English muffin with peanut butter, pineapple preserves, an egg white, and some fruit.
After computer work I got my spin on again with a pretty intense 40 minute self-guided workout. I sprinted, climbed, etc. based on my mood and which some came on my iPod. I cooled down and made my weekly Whole Foods trip with a big salad for lunch.
This beauty has kale, mixed greens, carrot, beets, bell pepper, baked beans, plain chicken, and some corn and was enjoyed al fresco.
I have a few things to look forward to tonight and tomorrow so the busyness continues. I really love summer!
