Dreary Cincinnati Weather

It's been really really rainy all day today.
I woke up to the crashing of thunder and a torrential downpour outside my window. Fabulous.
Thunderstorms and enjoyable to listen to, and I really don't mind rain that much - it just was not a fun experience walking to the gym today. on the way there, mud from the sidewalk splashed all over my legs, and on the way back, my shoes were soaked from the giant puddle that was almost flooding the side of the street! Oh well. it's okay. Like I said, I really don't mind the rain, and I got to use my pretty new orange and pink umbrella :)

Today was the first time I've worked out to this extent in a LONG time. I spent an hour on the cross-trainer, which is what I try to do whenever I go - it torches calories and gets your muscles working.
yay me! By the end of my workout, the calories burned ended being around 664 or something like that. Awesome!!! After the cross-trainer, I worked my abs and arms for a few minutes - and I was done! I headed back outside to brave the rain.

After I got back to my apartment, I took a nice long shower, shaved my legs, and moisturized. Wonderful :) Then I whipped up some lunch...
Grapes, an apple, raisins, broccoli, and a spinach salad with pecans and balsamic vinegar. It's a lot of food! I still have the apple, 1/4 of the grapes, and half the salad left on my plate. I don't think I'll be able to finish it all at the moment....but delicious none-the-less.

I also discovered this awesome new site, Vegan Cuts - check it out! They send you weekly coupons for vegan items. Awesome! 

What is everyone doing for Easter? Anything exciting? Instead of coloring eggs this year, I'm having an Easter egg hunt and shirt tie dying party! That way, I still get to dye something...just not eggs :) How about you?
