I don’t want to rub it in to those of you who experienced less than stellar weather…but today was PERFECT! Sunny, 80 degrees and oh so gorgeous – it was the perfect day to lay in the sun and soak up some rays get my vitamin D fix. After last night’s late feast, I went light with the breakfast this morning and concocted a berry green monster.
1 cup vanilla almond milk
1.5 cups mixed frozen fruit (pineapple, mango, berries & banana)
2 cups spinach
raspberries, for a pretty garnish
After breakfast, I ran a few errands, grabbed my VeggieGirl-inspired Dark Chocolate Coconut Almond Blondies and met my two ladies Ashley and Megan for some quality time poolside!
Oh man – heaven! It was so nice to relax, lounge by the pool, take a dip and catch up with my gal pals. I slathered on the SPF45 then happily soaked up my vitamin D. Early afternoon, we brought out our potluck of goodies for lunch. On the menu today…
All-Bran Garlic & Herb crackers
roasted red pepper hummus
variety of takeout sushi
Diet Coke (a must-have poolside beverage!)
my VeggieGirl blondies
For my share, I would guesstimate I had about 1 cup strawberries, 4 pieces of sushi, 1-1.5 servings crackers w/ 1/4 cup hummus and 2 blondies (and Diet Coke :)) spread out throughout the lunch/afternoon.
Us ladies bummed the rest of the afternoon at the pool and split at about 3:30pm. From there, I ran a quick errand to my sister’s new house and then came home where I finished up on some basic Sunday tasks: cleaning, laundry, mini-manicure and dindin. Tonight was a random assortment of things…spinach salad with berries, almonds and a drizzle of honey/EVOO, celery w/ peanut butter and a slice of Ezekiel 12-grain bread with raspberry preserves.
And a third blondie for dessert :).
Along with a glass of sauvignon blanc…
After dinner, it was off to my favorite Sunday night Yoga/Pilates Fusion class with Deb. Sixty minutes of loveliness – today was full of balance moves, ab work and lotsa good stretching. When I got home, I needed a lil’ somethin’ somethin’ so I made myself a bowl of blueberry-liciousness…
Tomorrow I am volunteering at an all-day charity golf tournament for Children’s Heartlink – an awesome international medical nonprofit that does with with pediatric heart disease around the world. I am so excited to soak up some sun, hit the links and support a good cause. I will have a full recap of all the fun tomorrow!
Tomorrow also starts day 1 of marathon training…yikes!
What was the best thing you did this weekend? For me, that’s a toughie. It’s tied between the Pedal Pub and the poolside fun today!
