Yesterday my husband and I both thought a morning swim would be a fantastic idea, so after Bill (the turkey) went into the oven, we drove to the pool. We had hoped we’d be late enough that the crowds would already be doing meal preparation but we were wrong. We filled out a lane with four people swimming different speeds. Luckily we were all conscientious and noticed when someone wanted to pass. I didn’t take any rest periods between sets but did stop frequently on the wall to let another swimmer go by. I was thrilled when the sun came out at the beginning of my workout, as I was positioned in the perfect lane to catch some rays from the high pool windows. I got out of the pool feeling energized and ready to tackle a Thanksgiving meal!
Today, post-traditional turkey dinner (and oxtail soup and chicken caccitore and the most beautiful salad I’ve ever seen and three desserts), I’m making oatmeal to begin the day in a healthy fashion, then we will meet family members for a hike. I’ve never been to Point Lobos before and am excited to spend some time in nature!
