I love the 4th of July! A day that involves summer, watermelon, outside, friends, and family makes me happy. I’m off for a hike, lunch outside with friends, and then dinner/fireworks with other friends. Just fingers crossed that SF fog will stay away long enough to actually SEE the fireworks
This month, I’m making a special effort to bring extra smiles and extra appreciation into my day. Everyday, I’m posting something simple that made me smile or something I’m grateful for. And today (this was written Tuesday), what made me happy was “holiday light” traffic! I zipped to work in 40 minutes instead of an hour plus. Nothing like actually doing 65mph instead of 20 to make me happy! It’s the small things that matter.
And now for the July 4th WIAW (thanks, Jenn!)
These are my eats from Friday. I wasn’t as hungry as usual, which isn’t like me…but I’m on antibiotics that make me a little nauseous so I think they are the culprit. Anyways….
Breakfast was in parts. First, a banana.
Then coffee plus a little mini frappachino sample (yum!)
Then, an unpictured hunk of bread with earth balance.
Lunch was eaten outside at the park! Love those days. Chobani mixed with almond butter, carrots, and cherries.
I ate them on a bench in the park.
Later, more cherries at my desk.
And when I got home, leftover pesto pasta salad with a side of broccoli. I ate a second helping of pasta plus some carrots and celery that were eaten before I remembered to take a photo.
Healthy-wise, this day was a bit carb heavy and didn’t include enough greens. But for a Friday, the day I’m usually exhausted and wanting chocolate….it could have been worse!
Happy Independence Day!
– What are your plans?
– Do you ever eat lunch outside?
