Beach Days and Taco Nights

Yesterday was another perfect day in my opinion.
I was on the beach with two of my girlfriends by 10:30 am.

I enjoyed my last Blueberry Blonde ale with my toes in the sand.

We soaked up the sun until the early afternoon then Eddie and I tackled the food store.
I had one thing on my mind for dinner,

I went with a vegetarian taco salad.
  • Lettuce
  • Tomato
  • Black Beans
  • Corn
  • Onion
  • Guacamole
  • Sour Cream
  • Cheese 

At the gym:
I took elevated training, which is probably comparable to body pump.
My knee is still bothering me (walking in the sand did not help, but that wasn't stopping me) so I had to make modifications and only used 2 risers on the step but I still got in a good sweat session that has me pretty sore today.

When I came home from the gym these were on the kitchen counter.For those of you who may not know what they are, they're yurbuds aka the greatest earbuds ever created for sweating.
 I couldn't wait to try them out so I put them on and spent 45 minutes dancing/jumping around the house trying them out.

My thoughts?

 They are better than I expected. I'm not sure how I ever lived without them.

Eddie and I are off to adventure out on eastern Long Island today. So far STAYCATION 2012 is 2 for 2 on great days and I know today will be great with my best friend by my side.

I can't wait to share our adventures with you tomorrow.
