Happy Tuesday (I almost wrote Wednesday!) – like I said, man how time flies! Today was HOT here in Minnesota! I am talking like 90+, and it felt fabulous. I forget sometimes how I miss a good cathartic sweat!
I’m trying to use up all my groceries before I leave town on Thursday, so this morning was easy AB+J toast with about 1 cup of raspberries. Oh man – those raspberries were sweet and delicious!
Throughout the mid-morning I snacked on the last of my Cascadian Farms Oats + Honey granola with a generous sprinkle of coconut…such a fabulous combo!
For lunch, I ate the rest of my leftover Thai Coconut Curry from last night – it was just as good reheated the next day! Along with a Diet Cherry Coke (just tastes so good sometimes!)…
After lunch, I took a nice 40 minute walk. Of course, I was totally sweating in my work clothes when I got back, but hey, a little smell is worth the fresh air, right? Mid-afternoon, I busted out my fave Larabar…Miss Cherry Pie! She was extra chockful of almond chunks today – extra delicious!
I was eager to bust out of work at 5pm, which I did, because I was meeting my college roomie Jamie. I promised her awhile ago I would try spray tanning (aka Mystic Tan) with her for the first time, so today was the big day! We went out to eat at Cafe Latte – the BEST little cafe with totally amazing desserts in St. Paul. I know, I know I am not supposed to be eating out (I mean, come on Holly, three times in the past week?), but I did :).
My dinner was soooo good! I got the Salsa Salad (romaine, black bean spread, guacamole, tomato, onion, salsa, cheddar cheese and a dollop of sour cream), which came with tortilla chips and a whole wheat roll. I ate all of the salad (such a good combo!), 1/2 the chips and 1/2 the whole wheat roll.
And I present to you…dessert for two!
Yeah, that’s right, MANGO BLUEBERRY CHEESECAKE! Enough said right there.
After dinner, we went spray tanning, which I was totally nervous about. I thought for sure I would screw it up (anybody remember Ross from Friends?). It was really easy, and I should start seeing some color in a couple hours. Although I smell a bit, I’m excited to see what it turns out like – hopefully not orange by the way!
Jamie and I shopped and walked around the area for probably around an hour and compared arms post-spray tan…
Still nothing yet, but we will see tomorrow…don’t forget to come back tomorrow morning for some fun, fun stuff!
