Worked my abs!

Today for a change of pace I did two 10 minute ab workouts.  Workout 1 was Pilate's mat abs and workout 2 was stability ball abs. I gave both ab workouts my best but they were tough!

Worked with hubby on an outdoor yard clean-up project

Played 18 holes of golf

What a perfect night for it!

I tried the new Cantina Bowl at Taco Bell on sunday with my mom!!!

The Cantina Bowl is very delicious and pretty healthy actually and it's something I would totally want to eat again. It's a salad with beans, rice, corn, pepper salsa (I don't know what that is), cilantro dressing and guacamole made from real avocados (don't worry, there wasn't a lot of it and I couldn't really taste it because I mixed it with the salad). I had the choice of getting it with chicken, steak or vegetables but I chose the chicken. Lorena Garcia is the chef who invented this wonderful meal and it only came out about a month ago. The salad only comes in one size (which didn't fill me up...i'm a hungry girl!) and is about five dollars. So go out and try the Cantina Bowl! I enjoy trying new things so i'm sure you will love it too... :)

Tried to Listen to the Longest Book in the World

The angel's game [sound recording]: a novel by Carlos Ruiz Zafón ; [English translation by Lucia Graves]

Read a book about Superheroes

After the Golden Age by Carrie Vaughn — Celia West is the daughter of Commerce City's two most well-known superheroes. Unfortunately, she has no superpowers. Living in the shadow of her parents, Celia has to discover her own talents. There was something a little strange about reading this story in traditional format instead of watching it as an action movie or reading it as a graphic novel. I had a great time trying to pinpoint the villian, who was someone relatively obvious, but who then encouraged second-guessing as well. A fun read

Read a Spanish vocab picture book

El gran libro de mi mundo by con ilustraciones de Kali Stileman ; [traducción, Equipo Ediciones B] — This book is so cute. The illustrations are bright and cheerful. It's a great book for young kids who want to learn new Spanish words.

I voted.
