Good Morning Peeps!
It is Day 2 of NO RAIN IN VANCOUVER!!!! YAY!!!! Don’t get me wrong I love me some puddle jumping, but the shot of Vitamin D yesterday and this morning makes a WORLD of difference!
Yesterday was a pretty awesome day. I impressed myself with my workout yesterday. The gym was virtually empty so I had my pick of machines and equipment. I love it when that happens! I started (…again) my learning to run program. I used to have no problem running for a couple minutes and I could barely make it a minute. I just kept telling myself that no matter how slow you go, don’t stop running and by the last interval I wanted to die, but I crushed it! I then did a full body weight training program and by the last round of burpees, push-ups, squats, mountain climbers, Russian twists, and more….I wanted to die. There was a terribly attractive man working out next to me and when I was laying on the ground at the end he walked over, did say a word, smiled and gave me a high five. It was one of those workouts at the end that you can ring your shirt out, your face is beet red and you get up to walk to the change room and your legs don’t quite function right. I was so proud of myself and impressed!
Recipe #3: Eating was pretty simple yesterday. I cooked a SUPER yummy new recipe. I am new to the world of spice….mild salsa used to be too spicy for me. I made these Spicy Thai Peanut Noodles. I didn’t have sriracha so I used red pepper flakes instead. I don’t know where in my brain and I thought “Oh, they aren’t as spicy as sriracha, so I will use more” Well I had LIPS OF FIRE when I was eating dinner last night, but it was still insanely delicious! I did make a few modifications….I used rice noodles instead of spaghetti and I removed the crushed peanuts that were simply to add the “crunch” factor in the salad. I drank so much water with dinner, and I will have Lips of Fire all week, but I don’t care, it was so so so tasty!
Love: my “girly” side. I love getting all dolled up. I love doing my hair and makeup. I love the color pink. I love my femininity. I also love that I can live in sweats and have no problem getting covered in dirt and mud.
Lesson #7: if you are or have ever been curious about false eyelashes….I am here to tell you that it takes many many tries before you can apply them with ease! I have glued my eye shut. I have glued them on upside down. I have looked like I have caterpillars for eyelashes. I can finally say that I can apply them with ease after about a year of solid effort! Keep trying my makeup, false eyelash loving Diva’s!
