another walk last night. 20 min
also threw in a 200m sprint and was humbled by the effortless pace of Sadie (our much loved family dog)
I'm going full out and she is playing with the leash!!! Maybe I need 4 legs too.........

felt a bit lethargic this morning but I packed the gym bag anyway. I think I'll try for another easy workout.

I'm still dreaming of the meal we had in NYC. I found a vegan food cart while searching on line
Went to it and had a great visit and fantastic food. The kids loved it too
Some of the highlights were crepes filled with lentils and fresh veggies and the vegan "drumsticks" (sort of a seitan-like roll on a sugar cane stick) served with an assortment of mild to hot sauces.
mmmm That was the best meal on the trip for sure!!!

went for a 40 min walk last night. After the vacation, I really see the benefits of walks. I find them very therapeutic in some ways too.

off to the cottage on the weekend
planning a pyscho pushup workout during the weekend (and lots of walking)
