GUESS WHO’S HOME?!
I’m so happy to be reunited with my sister! I know it’s part of growing up and getting older, but I definitely miss having her around on a regular basis. I’m excited for her to be home for the next 10 days.
Before going to pick Hilary up, I convinced my mom to go to a vinyasa yoga class at her usual yoga studio. I’m not quite sure what happened, but it ended up being just us and the teacher. It took a bit of time to adjust to a new teacher and a new studio, but I was really happy by the end of the class. The best part was the teacher gave us a chance to work on inversions. I want to be able to do some sort of inversion, any sort of inversion, but I’m also afraid. I need to work on letting go of that fear and then I think I’ll be able actually get into those poses.
Then after yoga, my parents and I went to pick Hilary up from the airport. She wanted us to greet her with a sign, but since she made her request as the last minute we didn’t have time to make one. So here was dad’s creative solution:
And it turned out Hilary had her own “welcome home” idea. She greeted us by walking off the tram with a GoPro!
Hilary and I spent today catching up with each other by doing some of our usual activities.
We started the morning with a walk to Treasure Island. I realized that I haven’t been getting very many steps while I’ve been home, since I can let Sirius out in the back yard. So took Sir Sirius on a walk and got in our daily steps!
When we got to the top of the bridge, Sirius refused to turn around and walk back down. I *might have* carried Sirius down the bridge because I was afraid he was getting too tired. It turns out that he just wanted to keep soldering on.
After the walk, I’d gotten nearly 8,000 steps and I reached the 10,000 step goal later in the day.
The rest of the afternoon was low key. We didn’t have any food in the house, so Hilary and I planned some healthy meals — a kale lasagna and a creamy slow-cooker tortellini soup. Hilary was also stoked to make a trip to Publix. I tend to take Publix for granted, but Hilary was so happy to be back. She made a beeline for the Publix sub line.
Hilary made the creamy tortellini soup for dinner and it was delicious! We ended up doubling the amount of mushrooms, onions, and tortellini, so we figured that our version of the soup was about 7-8 WeightWatchers Points.
I didn’t take any pictures of the final product, but Charlie was happy to help us in the creation process.
Hope everyone else had a wonderful Wednesday!
