This weekend’s time change was really my savior in surviving Sunday.
At 7:30 my alarm went off and I rolled over to see if there was any chance Holly was feeling as anti-exercise as I was. I can’t decide what surprised me more; the fact that she went to bed in her
lady of the night gala make-up, or the fact that she was still gung-ho for bootcamp in said state.
Either way, Susan kicked the bejeezus out of me, Holly, Janetha, and Danica that morning. Danica’s hubby, Jay, joined us for a hot second before abandoning us in our sorry state (but not without being reprimanded for stealing a hotel towel first).
I was groggy and half asleep through the 30 minute session that I’m hardly sure it wasn’t just a
dream nightmare. Without photo evidence to confirm, the jury is still out. Although I am still sore, which makes it rather creepy if it was a dream.
After showering, we trekked through the rain to go to the farewell brunch. Surprisingly, my focus was on food rather than coffee (or people – ha!) because I was running on empty after the workout.
Again, there were fairly boring veggie options, so I found I had a produce heavy breakfast. I have no problem with starting the day with fruit. Salads on the other hand…that’s a bit weird, right? No? Just me?
The left one had mushrooms, red onions, and red lettuce. The one on the right had fancy lettuce and not much else. The common ingredient was croutons. And by croutons I mean cut up pieces of Nature’s Pride bread. I realize Nature’s Pride was a sponsor, but this just seemed like a bit of a stretch to get their products in a dish (however possible).
The dressing was a must given the semi-pathetic ingredients.
Full disclosure: I liked the salad! I don’t like red onions much, but the marinated ‘shrooms and bread made it more like stuffing than salad, so it was kinda hearty.
Here’s my plate, piled with an assortment of fruit, salads, and toast, plus a yogurt/granola cup on the side.
Too much plastic waste!!! [Insert frustrating sigh here]
And of course there was coffee…
For the love of soy milk, I was so happy they had a non-milk option. Score.
While everyone else was up and about, saying their goodbyes, I chatted it up with Tiff. Love her.
After such a fabulous weekend, the rest of the day was complete letdown. My sister and Kyle picked me up at the hotel and we all drove back to the East Bay together.
Then Kyle and I said goodbye to my fam bam and began the loooong ride back to So Cal.
Highlight of the drive: sampling my swag, especially the granola Janetha made
Lowlight of the drive: Getting a call from my sister informing me that I left my car/apt keys back in Nor Cal (5 hours into the drive no less…).
In the words of Antione “you are so dumb, you are really dumb – for real.”
