"Wait, isn't it June?"
Yep. Yep it is. Still raining. I love Portland, I love the Pacific Northwest, and I love rain for 8 months out of the year. But for pete's sake, this is supposed to be one of the beautiful four!
Despite the drizzle, I went kayaking today! I have been twice before and LOVED it, and it was so much fun to go with a good friend who knew what they were doing! I learned a lot, I saw 3 bald eagles and 4 hawks, 2 blues herons, and a partridge in a pear tree....okay, not the partridge:)
I also biked 11 miles! It's been a busy day:)
I weighed myself today and found that I am at 183lbs! Sweet! I'll take it! (isn't it funny how different we weigh at different times of the day? Like, If I weighed myself right now I would be about 185lbs, due to the amount of cookies, fruit, and sangria in my belly...yum)
So in an effort to take another look at my health/diet/nutrition, I am reading "Why French Women don't get Fat." I read a little of it about 2 years ago, but I remember giving up early in the book, when she suggests a weekend of drinking leek broth....not really my thing. And I still don't think that's my style. But she is presenting some good ideas in a palatable way, so we will see what happens. I'll keep you updated on the reading, my weight, and this wonderful journey we call life!
(Also, I'm thinking there should be a book out there called "Why Irish-American Women don't get why Beer isn't a Food:)
