1. My new water bottle:
Well, it's not exactly new. I bought it several years ago at Copelands Sports (which doesn't even exist anymore, I don't think) when I thought I might actually go hiking or mountain biking or something athletic like that (ha!), but I just started using it today. I've been reading lately how some of the convenient plastic bottles our drinking water comes in are made from a kind of plastic that's bad for us and bad for the environment, so my mom and I decided that rather than buying our Arrowhead by the 24-bottle case, we're going to pour our Britta-filtered water into reusable bottles instead. This adorable aluminium water bottle from Life is Good is going to stay at work with me, so I'm looking for safe (and cute and/or fun) reusable bottles to have at home.
2. My lunch:
Leftover Wehani rice salad (substituting brown rice for the Wehani which I couldn't find) that I made on Sunday from a recipe in my new Eat-Clean Diet Cookbook.
3. Finally being healthy enough to go to the gym! Man, did I ever miss working out while I was suffering from a nasty cold last week! It felt so good to hit the elliptical and treadmill last night, and I can't wait to get a little workout in this evening as well!
4. An exciting little shaker. It was only a 3.9 (followed by a teeny tiny 2.4), but the jolt was kinda fun!
