When I was finished on the computer yesterday I went down to the gym with my mom. I basically haven’t worked out consistently all year (fail!) but I’m hoping to kick start a routine during my extra free time this vacation. Just in time for 2012 resolutions, eh? Last night I did 40 minutes on the elliptical at random level 6, followed by 15 minutes on the stationary bike.
Then my mom took me to dinner at a salad bar.
The salad bar concept is fairly new in St. Thomas and people are more than just a little excited about it. Between my near-daily Wegmans consumption and extreme Whole Foods lust I consider myself a bit of a salad bar connoisseur. And this one was pretty good.
I got a small scoop of pasta salads,
a big scoop of cole slaw,
and romaine lettuce with a few chopped veggies (including lots of pickles!), raisins, peanuts, and vinegar for dressing.
And then my dad fed me this peanut brittle bar for dessert.
This morning I got up bright and early to catch a ride to the gym. 50 minutes on the elliptical at random level 3. I brought a book to start but ended up just wanting to spend some time with my thoughts.
I got home around 8:30 and crashed into what felt like the most necessary nap ever. I’m allergic to something in the air here and if my sniffles continue I foresee lots of naps.
Then I came back to school and snacked on a Jazz apple,
and some candy I stole from a teacher gift my mom got.
She’s the lower school (kindergarten – 5th) librarian at my old school and people are crazy about her. You should see the kinds of looks I get here when people find out who my parents are.
As soon as my mom goes on her break I’m going to run some errands with her and try to find some lunch. I’m making dinner for my parents tonight, so please think tasty thoughts for me!
