The lane that I am in now is a fun lane. Everyone is really nice. Sometimes though, it is frustrating. I can't stand having more rest than we need and I don't like chatting between the sets. I want to get in, work hard, and get out. I would love to be social before and after and here and there in between but that's it! It is hard when I start to get chilly because we're resting too long or I just don't feel like I'm working hard. The thing is, the fast people take too much rest between sets too, but they swim on faster intervals. Maybe I should just be enjoying the people and chatting, but I'm there to swim, not chat!
I was annoyed on Wednesday when I asked the fast guy leading our lane if we could go on a faster interval and he said we couldn't make it. We could totally make it. He just didn't want to push himself - and he's already fast!! A nice guy... but I so needed to be pushed. Doesn't seem like there's a happy medium here so my goal is one day/week with the fast people until I can move over there full time (I hope!) It is such a jump though.
My friend from work gave me a gift card to this raw food place by me. I've tried it once with my sister and the service was crap and food decent. Yesterday I ordered and picked up. Yum. I love raw food and healthy eating. I totally want a chef that could make me this stuff every meal. I think I want to put together a cookbook with all of my favorite recipes online. It was good. I'd go back. It's expensive though. What a great gift!
This was called Cashew Vegetable Collard Leaf Wrap - shredded veggies, cashew dressing wrapped in a fresh collard leaf. Least favorite of the 3 but very fresh and yummy.
Hand made flax tortilla with spicy pumpkin seed pate', tomatoes, cucumber, lettuce and cashew creme.
This was my favorite. "Living Pizza"Marinara sauce, cashew creme, zucchini, brazil nut parmesan on a crispy buckwheat crust. Again, saved some for Bill and I totally shouldn't have! Nick and I were big fans and I want it right now even though it's not even 8am yet.
Caffeine - I need to look this up, but did you drink caffeinated coffee when you were nursing? I don't want to drink too much but the dingy 3-4 oz that I am drinking in the morning is a waste because we have a keurig and I'm dumping out about 2-3 oz.
