Happy Belated Monday, everyone! What a weekend!
As promised, here are a few photos from my trip to the Bambouseraie this weekend. What a beautiful day and relaxing walk in the park. Got some activity in AND felt like I took an afternoon trip to Asia:
Arcade down the center of the park
Look how big the bamboo stalks were on average...
Did you know even bamboo this big grows to its full height in 3 months?
Japanese aquatic garden (i.e. best way to get Clément in a photo is to pretend encourage him to not be in it) ;)
Chasing Clément around the maze. It's moments like this that make me realize how far I've come. Stuff like playing with him is now fun instead of embarrassing and tiring. :)
In comparaison with the US, these are "small" redwoods.
Anyway, it was a great day. Came home, went and babysat for the girls and then got roped in to attending an "Anything but clothes" party for a bit. Pretty funny, though it really killed my day of responsible eating... I had no problem resisting the alcohol, but then they got out birthday cake. I guess on a positive note, I tracked it like I should and have since moved on. Can't beat yourself up, right?
Success! Trashbag with boatneck, cellophane belt, aluminum foil flower,bracelet, and tiara. Win.
Anyway, today has been a good start to the week. Didn't work out, but have ended my calories at an acceptable 1,298 for the day. Now, off to bed so I can wake up in the morning and run! More on the run and joining the 7 Day Chip in my next post! :)
