A terrifying concept, at least for all of my adult years. But I went to two this weekend, even had a bathing suit that fit, it was fine. This was an accomplishment for me, a bit scary, but it really was okay. I still put on a sundress if I’m out of the pool for a while, but it’s better than the long t-shirt that I used to wear as a teenager. Most of my adult life I’ve lived in San Francisco, which is not swimming-friendly, but an hour in any direction can get very hot. I overate, as I always tend to do, when there’s tasty not-so-healthy food around and I am drinking. I’ve learned to accept this as my reality, and rather than fight it, I just yield to it, try not to overdo it, and compensate by eating a bit more cautiously before and after. It wasn’t all that bad, being that there were no sweets- at all! What’s WRONG with these people. My digestive system is tired, as is the rest of me. Tonight it’ll be a salad (mostly from my garden), cottage cheese, and ear of corn, which doesn’t sound awesome, but is. I like simple meals on hot evenings. When it gets cool enough, I’ll make some roasted roots and ham and collards to eat for lunch for the rest of the week.
Hope everyone had a great holiday (4th of July, or Canada Day, or whatever you may or may not celebrate).
