Another hectic day, but a happy one :)
Breakfast: Had a great breakfast with Mikey's family, got to meet his wonderful sis-in-law Alicia and gorgeous 6-month old niece, Ava :) Had blueberry pancakes with just a tiny bit of butter and a medium drizzle of real maple syrup.
Lunch: The rest of the pancakes (they were HUGE) and a few fresh strawberries.
Afternoon Snack: One slice of fresh cheddar oregano bread from the market and a little of the Labneh I got at the market the other day.
Dinner: Half of hamburger (no cheese, just a scrape of aioli), some roasted asparagus and a small portion of homemade pasta salad, made with EVOO, not mayo.
Evening snack: Strawberries with a dollop of whipped heavy cream
Excercise: Ten laps around the outside of my pool, five jogging, five fast walking . Got winded way sooner than when I swim laps around the pool, which was a small blow to my pride, but I got through it :)
Creativity: My mother found a box of old books belonging to my brothers and I from when we were younger. Among them I found one of my favorite YA novels, * Maniac Magee* by Jerry Spinelli. My 5th grade teacher read this book out loud to us and I was hooked from the first sentence. Yesterday, after finding the book I opened it and read it cover within a few hours. It was every bit as good as I remembered :)
I forgot to record my blood pressure this morning, I apologize....
