I wish every day were like today. I feel so great!
Got up around 8. I had considered getting up early and running, but last night was the first time I had any GOOD sleep in a while, so I took advantage of the fact that I didn't have to be in to work early this morning. Got showered/dressed and checked a few work emails. Then I headed out to the corporate outing.
It was at Cedardale in Groveland, MA. What a great venue! They hold all sorts of things from corporate outings to parties to weddings, etc. It was gorgeous! They catered it, and there is mini-golf, baseball/softball, horseshoes, pools, wading areas for kids, hot tubs, and more!
We had a 7-way mini golf game, which was crazy. The guys I work with are hilarious! Then we ate and chatted and lazed about for a while. Then they wanted to play horseshoes. I had never played before, but agreed to give it a try. Apparently I'm good at it! :) I kicked their butts!
I was VERY careful with food/drink. And they nicknamed me the "flower child". Could this be the way I eat? (no beer - water, no rolls for my hot dog or burger, lots of veggies, ONE glass of wine) or could it be the low rise, flare jeans with butterflies embroidered on them? lol... anyway, these guys know me too well. I'm the resident "hippie" in the office (which they figured out the weekend I spent camping at a bluegrass festival).
I was feeling pretty good when I left there! Stopped at the farm stand for plums and also picked up some nice looking blackberries. Grabbed some water and headed home. Changed my clothes and headed to the gym.
Ran 2 miles at the gym, plus did abs. Then I treated myself to a dip in the pool. Did a few laps and headed home.
Now I'm comfy on my bed with my laptop and my book. Ate some fruit and a little bit of pork roast for dinner.
I'm exhausted and feel great! Why can't every day be like today? :)
