Exciting News! My birthday vacation is booked and ironically we are exactly 100 days out! I feel like I should do something special for the next 100 days. Maybe a challenge? I don’t know. It’s hard to believe not only am I turning the big 3-0 but I haven’t been on a real vacation in years. It’s going to feel amazing to have sun, beach, sand and a reason to use my passport again. I text one of my friends about ideas she shared in the past and she told me during the exact time frame I was looking they’d also planned a vacation so I will have extra company to celebrate with me. I’ll be sharing more details along the way as we start the 100 day countdown.
Let’s back up to last night, shall we? I came home from work and I was so hungry. I ate salad leftovers for lunch which were delicious but maybe not as filling. Why is it that when you eat a salad you aren’t full for that long?
I came home to a delicious pasta dish already made! It was unbelievable. Linguine with vodka sauce, olives, tomatoes, calamari, onion..maybe there was more and I can’t remember. I had two bowls and once I realized I overate I also remembered that I needed to clean my apartment. It was the last chance I had before my friend comes into town Friday. I spent the next two hours (makes it sound dirty right? taking that long? but I swear it wasn’t that bad) vacuuming, dusting, wiping down and Windexing. I had grand plans to go to the gym after cleaning but I finished around 9:15 p.m. and after sitting around for 15 minutes I decided I would just do an upper body working at the apartment. Well that turned into laying around another half hour and then I just scrapped the idea all together. I decided I burned plenty of calories while cleaning. I should have worn my heart rate monitor to give me an idea on just how many. After that we watch another episode of Entourage and then it was time for bed.
I’ve got a work event tonight and tomorrow is Friday! I’ll be back with another Fri-yay post to kick off the weekend!
