First of all, the weather was A-M-A-Z-I-N-G today!!! I felt like I was back in South and it was the first day of Spring. It was so nice that after I left the studio, Adam, Rocky and I decided to head to the COAST for lunch at my very favorite spot—Island Deli. I’ve eaten fish tacos at this place numerous times (they rock my world) but was feelin’ a little something different today so I went with a bowl of clam chowder instead—-
This was actually a pleasant surprise because it wasn’t the thick, super creamy clam chowder that I’m used to. This tasted “healthier” (haha) and seemed to be made with less cream and more stock, with big chunks of clams and potatoes. It hit the spot! I also snagged a few of the guys fries…
When I got home, I knew I needed to take full advantage of this weather and so I headed outside to work out (it was a little too late for a long bike ride!). Ran a quick mile and a half then followed that up with lunges and push-ups. However, when I got inside and checked my email I saw that Anna had emailed me with tomorrow’s workout plan:
“10 jumping jacks
40 crunches (any style)
50 squats or alternating lunges
~~3 rounds, or until we drop!”
Oh boy….here we go again! For a post-workout snack, I ate two kiwis. Lord knows I need to hit the grocery store!
Italian food was on the menu for dinner….something I need more of in my life! I met a friend here and it was fabulous! I rarely order pasta out (not because its “bad for you” but because a lot of chefs BUTCHER it and the pasta is nothing but mush) but when I see pasta with seafood on any Italian menu, I go for it full force. I LOVE it and ate it all the time in France!
Thanks again for your sweet comments about my hair! I’m having so much fun with it!!! It was so crazy this evening getting out of the shower and seeing my hair SO DARK in the mirror. When I was a blonde I usually flat ironed it to make it super smooth and straight, but I’ve decided as a brunette its more fun to add waves and body and let the flat iron rest.
I applied root lifter, my favorite Aveda smoothing serum and then blew it dry upside down with a round brush…then used a curling iron to spiral some pieces on top. It seems like a long process but really only took 15 minutes. I’m not a girl that likes to spend a ton of time on her hair!
