Today the weather was amazing. And my mood was amazing. Probably due to the weather. I worked at Truly Asian this morning. We were super slow. I spent most of the day reading on my phone. I’m just started reading Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor. I didn’t know anything about the book when I started reading it; it was recommended to me by someone who usually has similar taste in books to me. I haven’t read enough of it to decide if it’s good or not, but it’s definitely interesting. I’m excited to read more of it. Dennis (my boss at Truly Asian) made me Pad Thai for lunch. It was aaaamazing. He seriously make the best Pad Thai ever. And he added a ton of veggies to mine since he knows that I’m eating healthy, and gave me a smaller portion. It was only a cup, but I was so full when I finished it!
When I got off work, I came home and changed clothes and took Tesla (my dog) to the lake. I normally just walk the path around the lake, which is about 2 1/2 miles and relatively flat. Today I felt like exploring a little though, so I walked one of the bike trails through the woods and eventually around the lake. It was pretty hilly and way longer. (Not sure how long, but it took me two hours to walk it. It usually takes me 40-50 minutes to walk the 2.5 around the lake.) And I jogged most of it! It was a gorgeous path. A little muddy from the recent rain, but not too bad.
I did learn today that my dog is a wimp. She started out super excited to be going on a walk and tugging ahead of me. However, about twenty minutes in, jogging most of that, she started to slow down a little. About halfway through she was ready for a break. Every time I slowed to a walk she would try to take a break. Fat puppy needs more exercise! lol. We were within site of the lake at that point, so I let her go over and get a drink. Some geese swam over to see if we had food and she freaked out and hid behind me. Finally I coaxed her out and convinced her there wasn’t anything to be scared of. She loves to swim, and I guess she was a little curious to meet the geese so she swam out toward them. The minute the looked at her she came back though.
Anyway, it was a beautiful day and I burned more calories than I ate today!
