Thank you SO much for your sweet and kind comments on my life bonk revelation. It means a lot to me to have your support… truly!
One way to cut down on my stress is to actually get stuff done… I worked all afternoon and checked many things off my to do list.
I snacked on a 1/4 of a melon (not pictured) and some Easter chocolate (2x).
And Puck’s Chicken Dumpling Soup with broc.
I decided to cut loose a little bit tonight and I had a GREAT TIME. The Husband and two of our friends (Harry and Michelle) decided to go to Orlando Brewing Company for a free tour and some beer.
Orlando Brewing Company is Florida’s only certified organic brewery. The ingredients used in Orlando Brewing Company’s beers are grown without insecticides, bioengineering, or irradiation. Orlando Brewing brews in accordance with the German Purity Law of 1516. That means they use only natural, organic ingredients!
Before the tour started, we waited in the pub and drank a beer.
I had a Red Ale.
It felt great to relax and have a beer!
Me and Michelle…
The tour was really fun and informative. I asked the brewmaster why he chose to use organic ingredients and he replied, "I use organic ingredients so I feel comfortable looking at myself in the mirror in the morning. I like knowing I’m treating the environment and other people with respect." Pretty cool!
The best part of the tour was you could carry your beer around.
My shirt says "Diamonds are nice and so are pearls…." And the back says, "But nothing beats University of Pittsburgh girls!"
After the tour, I tried the Miami Weiss beer, which I really enjoyed.
After the tour, we drove downtown to the Clubhouse to watch the Pitt vs. Villanova game (ughhhhh which was horrible to watch).
I decided to continue my laid-back attitude and ordered a turkey + provolone+ pickle sammie with a side of onion rings.
Plus another beer (a Newcastle) that I drank 3/4 of.
Now, I’m buzzed, relaxed, and SLEEPY! I’m going to crash ASAP and tackle my 10 miler in the morning. Although I’m struggling to maintain my training schedule, I am excited for the upcoming 15.0 mile trail race and want to do well. Time to buckle down!
Have a GREAT night!
