Hi friends! Can you believe it was in the mid-80s today?! It felt like the perfect May spring day and I was l.o.v.i.n.g. it! The sun was shining and I couldn’t spend enough time outside.
After a weekend full of sightseeing, eating, walking, and quality time with my parents I was looking forward to a slower-paced Monday but it seems like my mind was tricked by the summer-like weather.
I was in back-to-back meetings for the first 5 hours of the day which made it go by quickly. Luckily they were across campus so I got little snippets of sunshine! After work I stopped by Trader Joe’s, dropped off groceries, and then headed to Whole Foods for a few more items and dinner.
This hot bar salad contains greens and spinach, bell pepper, mushrooms, peas, corn, onion, beets, Cuban chick peas, black beans, and some Brazilian rice. It was the perfect al fresco dinner after a weekend of delicious (but somewhat indulgent) food with the ‘rents.
Walking home, the last thing I wanted to do was spend time in my apartment. Instead I met up with a friend and we went for a nice little walk through a new neighborhood. Another accidental 3.6 miles for the day and I’ve walked 9 miles today! Ooops. That wasn’t he slow-paced day I’d originally had in mind but it was totally worth it!
How do I calm achy arches and a tired body? A cold shower followed by rolling my feet with a frozen water bottle. It hits all the parts of my feet perfectly and feels sooo good!
If you were in DC today did you soak up some sun? What’s your favorite home remedy for sore / tired muscles?
