Sunday already?

Looks like today is going to be another beautiful day!

Mood:
Comparable to the weather outside

Food:
Breakfast: Lucas made me a fresh juice of carrots, oranges, and ginger. Absolutely delicious. The ginger gives it some kick!

Recap of Yesterday:
Check mark for everything on yesterday’s agenda!
-bike ride to Mount Bonnell (the ride there had a few hills, but it wasn’t too bad. The neighborhoods are beautiful and the street is shaded by large trees, it’s a pleasant ride. We made it to Mount Bonnell it no time–maybe 15-20 minutes! It was cool and sunny, we perched ourselves on a couple of rocks and enjoyed the incredible view of the turquoise river below. This place is one of the many reasons of why I love living in Austin).
-run 30 minutes in neighborhood hills (I was dragging on the run, I felt really slow and heavy and the hills were killing me, but I’m glad I did it. I was seriously debating it as it was sandwiched between the bike ride and the soccer game).
-soccer game (We won! The bonus was that it was great soccer weather, not cold, not hot, no wind!)
-attend a friend’s photography exhibit at Studio 2 Gallery (she wasn’t there, but we saw her  photos. And yea for the man that walks around with the little tray offering wine)
-dinner at The Clay Pit (word to the wise: make a reservation! I don’t know what I was thinking–of course there would be a wait! We waited at least an hour and 15 minutes. The food and service was good overall, but nothing really stood out).

Fitness:
-30-40 minute easy-paced bike ride (break in between)
-30 minute run in the neighborhood hills
-outdoor soccer game (I played half a game, maybe a little more? 40 minutes total at least)

Green heart:
My soccer game was in southeast Austin, about a 25 minute drive from where we live in northwest Austin. Rather than drive all the way home to shower, then drive back down to South Austin for the exhibit, I planned ahead to pack stuff for showering and changing and did so at a Gold’s Gym location in South Austin. I saved time & money and reduced emissions!

Fitness:
60 minutes of weights/toning at the gym

Food:
Afternoon snacks: a juicy orange; celery with peanut butter (apparently, Lucas didn’t know this is a common American snack!)
Dinner: Lucas made a delicious dinner tonight. I had a big serving of broccoli-spinach penne with garlic and freshly grated parmesan

Green heart:
The faucet in our bathtub has been dripping, so we are collecting the water in a basin and using it to water plants.

Good night.
