My dad asked if I had any extra swim caps around, and I replied, â€œSureâ€¦ but I think itâ€™s hot pink.â€ He said he didnâ€™t care. Lookinâ€™ good, Dad.
Itâ€™s actually a race cap from a triathlon I did last year â€“ they color-code the age and sex groups by swim caps. In all the races that Iâ€™ve done, young women almost always get pink and the young guys get blue. Figures.
We did 500 yards. My distances are getting shorter and shorter, arenâ€™t they? Do you think that means labor is close? I had crazy Braxton Hicks contractions throughout the swim (basically, false and relatively painless contractions) so I called it quits after 10 laps. They say walking can induce labor when youâ€™re close to your due date, but Iâ€™m not sure about other exercises â€“ thereâ€™s probably something about the biomechanics of walking + the pull of gravity that makes it special.
T-minus three days until Iâ€™m dueâ€¦ Iâ€™m thinking Iâ€™m going to go over, though.
For lunch, I invited Nicole and Isaac over to hang out. We did a buffet-style lunch. Itâ€™s easy to cook for Nicole and Isaac because they liked the same foods we do.
Chilled quinoa salad with:
Cast iron tofu <â€”best batch yet!
I set out two sauces: balsamic and yellow curry. I went with balsamic.
And for dessertâ€¦.
Trader Joeâ€™s now has their own coconut milk ice cream, and itâ€™s really, really tasty. At the store, I couldnâ€™t decide between chocolate and strawberry so I bought both.
Hope your Sunday is going swimmingly, too!
