Reunited and it feels so good!

I had a WONDERFUL day with Carolyn and Danielle today! Us Italy girls, all back together!

In the morning, I was just about to go for a run when I felt raindrops... so I quickly ran back inside, and did a 5 minute incline walk on the treadmill to warm up before doing a 35 minute power yoga routine. It was very invigorating, a great start to my day! I had about 3/4 cup cottage cheese before we left to hold me over.

Danielle, Carolyn and I met up this afternoon and went out to sushi for lunch at Seven Moons, because Carolyn had never been there, and she LOVED it! We got a lot and shared- seaweed salad, Vegetarian Nime Chow (I ate 1 roll with peanut sauce), and 2 maki rolls- Spicy Scallop (I had 1 piece) and Los Vegas Roll (crab, cucumber, avocado, asparagus- I had 3 pieces.) We shared some tea, talked about Italy and had a great, peaceful lunch!

After lunch we headed to Newport, where we spent the day browsing the stores, I got myself a new necklace at my favorite boutique Pink Pineapple, and we ended our afternoon with BIG gelatos from Cold Fusion! They reminded us of Italy, so it was a great treat. We got big cups so we could try 4 flavors- I could hardly choose they have so many amazing flavors! I got chocolate coconut, chai tea, cactus pear, and coffee pecan. Every flavor was delectable- and yes, I finished every bite!

After saying our goodbyes to Carolyn, we headed to grab a quick, healthy dinner at Markos- I had my standard, the healthy baked falafel wrap with hummus, baked falafel, lettuce, tomato, and pickles in a huge pita. For dessert I had a few small squares of dark chocolate that Carolyn brought Danielle and I back from Rome! There's nothing like good ol' Italian chocolate to satisfy the sweet tooth! Delizioso!

Off to the movies with a couple friends! Have a great night everyone!

sounds like you guys had a fun night! I love that you enjoy your desserts, guilt free, and then eat healthy the rest of the time. I have a huge sweet tooth, but sometimes its hard to indulge without feeling a little guilty ;)
