Brrrrr. What happened to our beautiful sunshine and 80 degree weather?? It was freezing today! Oh well, hopefully the Cali warmth will return this weekend even though I’ll be spending a majority of my time moving all my things into Chris’ house. Oh yeah, did I share the news? I’m moving in with my boyfriend! Woohoo! So excited and happy. Can’t wait to settle in and focus on house projects like building a doghouse for Kihei (maybe), painting the walls in the backyard, designing the den to turn it into a master bedroom (longterm goal but no harm in getting our thinking caps on), etc etc.
I made it to the gym this morning since I was up at the buttcrack of dawn to let Kihei out of her crate to go pee. This crate training thing seems to be doing her some good since she’s been having quite the number of accidents in the house since we let her roam free and play with Guido. Some lady at the vet told me if you let your puppy run around your house like a free bird, it’s like letting a baby run around without diapers. They’ll have accidents everywhere. So we’re trying to be super consistent with the crate training and feeding schedule. God, having a puppy is great practice for having a kid LOL. Even though it doesn’t even compare. But back to the gym. I did 30 minutes of cardio (10 minutes on the treadmill, 10 minutes on the elliptical, 5 minutes on the stairmaster, and 5 minutes on the rowing machine) and then performed 15 minutes of squats and bicep curls and shoulder presses holding a weighted bar while balancing on a BOSU ball. I haven’t gone to the gym much (the part with all the cardio machines and weights) since I have been swimming regularly so it’s nice to finally mix up the routine. LMU is on spring break right now so the gym was super quiet and filled with the old farts like me (aka the alumni bunch haha from years past.)
Chris has been working super hard at his new job so I always like to treat him to a yummy breakfast to kickstart his busy day. Today was hawaiian french toast with sliced banana, powdered sugar, and a light drizzle of maple syrup. I also picked up some Peets Coffee beans from Bristol Farms and we’ve been enjoying it every morning. By the way, I’m a HUGE coffee snob and Peets is by far the BEST. Although I’m sure of you will beg to differ. I like strong coffee with some cream in it and that’s it. No sugar, no milk, no soymilk, nothing else. I prefer it the french way, I guess you can say 🙂
This was my lunch for today: lettuce from our garden plus some sliced banana and these rosemary “quackers” from One Lucky Duck in New York that my friend got for me. I dressed it with macadamia nut oil, some lemon juice, and celtic sea salt. I know you’re thinking “Ewwww. Bananas in your salad??!!!” But it was pretty darn good.
