Today was one of those days I really enjoyed. I've been consumed planning my trip lately, that I needed to gain perspective and remember that the beach is at my back door. Having gone less than five times this year and never with my swimsuit, I decided to go at 9:00am this morning with my floppy hat, beach chair and all before the tourists arrived for the day. The sand was freshly combed and untouched, the ocean was as flat as glass, and the temperature was perfect. Best of all, it was mostly mine...
Then a session of strength training followed at the gym, only later to spoil it with popcorn and reruns of Sex & the City and these little chocolate beauties garnished with powdered sugar and mint. Though I did cut the butter in half... does that count as a diet?
