No Pool for You!

Today I did some "at home" yoga and then planned to go swim some laps. But on my way to the pool, I spied others using it and turned tail for home.

See...thus far, I have been able to use our community pool as if it were my own private pool, but it does truly belong to the community; it's just not in high demand -- especially during the work week. But I guess on a Saturday afternoon people felt the urge to get to the pool and there were quite a few there. It's not big enough for all of us -- especially when one of us wants to use it for laps -- so I skipped the workout instead of attempting to freestyle between the water noodles. It's okay; I've gotten in quite a few workouts this week anyway.

So, instead of exercise, I put my efforts into a rich dinner and half a bottle of wine. And maybe I'm adding a few beers and some brownies I baked this afternoon as dessert. What? Just because I barely burned any calories today doesn't mean I can't consume a small country's worth tonight!

I tend to find I always turn to food when I skip a workout. I think its cuz my body tells me I need extra engergy so I can do double the workout next time :)

Jess, ur killin me smalls. Brownies, wine, delish food oh my!

Sorry the pool was owned by the noodle queens. I am going to battaling some of those while at my parents condo this summer. I always laugh because they are in the pool for 2 hours yet their hair is still perfect.
