Memorial Day weekend proved to be quiet and relaxing. Saturday was spent in the country near the river. My boyfriend and his family floated down the Guadalupe, maybe one of the last times of the season before it gets too dry and the rocks peek their heads up from underneath. I stayed behind; the last time I floated the river I found myself crashing in to people and rocks and trees and didn't get much enjoyment out of it. So I relaxed by the pool, sunbathed on and off (with sunblock of course), and read Rumi poetry and The Sound of Paper by Julie Cameron. It was a beautiful day with the sky a pale blue, and although a teeny bit hot, there was a nice breeze. And the cicadas! They were out in full force practically drowning out any bird song.
Sunday was recoup from the sun day (ha!). Even the dog was pooped and crashed out for most of the afternoon.
Memorial Day was spent at a friend's house grilling burgers and playing games. I had a homemade Mediterranean turkey burger. Ingredients: ground turkey meat, dried cranberries, low fat feta cheese, and garlic. You can find the recipe here. I left out the spinach and skipped the egg whites.
Speaking of food, wanna know what I've been eating on the Tone It Up nutrition plan?
