Day 24, briefly

It’s hot, y’all. Halloween is one week away and it feels like July. I ran a couple of errands after work and as I was driving home my car told me it was 106 deg outside. Holy crap. And let’s remember that I DON’T HAVE AIR CONDITIONING AT HOME! I am so over summer. It’s almost Halloween and it feels like an oven in Los Angeles. So wrong on so many levels. I went to boot camp yesterday and it was 86 deg inside the gym. Luckily it was a strength day rather than a cardio day so it wasn’t too terrible. Today’s classes were cancelled due to the heat, however, and going for a run was definitely out of the question. I’d have keeled over after a quarter mile. I wanted to take a walk around the neighborhood tonight, but it’s still so hot outside! I’m currently holed up inside my house with all of the windows closed, eating a salad (a cold dinner was really the only sane choice), and trying to not to move too much or I’ll start sweating. I’m also watching Game 1 of the World Series which broke a record for the hottest post season game ever with a temperature of 103 deg at Dodger Stadium for the first pitch. It’s supposed to be cooler tomorrow, but the definition of “cooler” is a high in the mid-90’s rather than triple digits. Sheesh. This is making me hate October!

Today’s meals:
Breakfast – Acorn squash casserole (with sausage and onion), cantaloupe (the only part of the catered breakfast I ate)
Snack #1 – Apple
Lunch – Carnitas, roasted broccoli and carrots, and roasted diced sweet potato
Snack #2 – Banana with almond butter
Dinner – Salad with shredded garlic chicken, red onion, red bell pepper, nuts, and balsamic vinaigrette dressing
