Fourth of July Margaritas

Fourth of July Margaritas

Last week I talked about a craving that hit after a long workout on a very hot day. I wanted a cocktail. Ideally one that I could drink at the beach, but the river was all I had. I made it work though. I made a Plum Vodka Fizz with FITAID (a recovery drink) which seemed fairly appropriate given my post workout craving. I'm not saying you should drink vodka after you workout, but hey, why not live a little. Don't worry, I ate food too. I'm not one to skip a meal. Apparently my ice cold cocktail craving wasn't a one day thing either because I had another one today. Yesterday I helped my mom pick her garden and it was overflowing with berries. Have you ever sat out in the sun picking fruit for hours? It's fun. You might get a sugar rush though if you're like me and lack self control when something tastes so good. One for me, one for my basket. Oh well, at least it was fruit and not a candy shop. That would be dangerous. I have an uncontrollable sweet tooth.

We're coming into another heat wave at my house, 102F today and 108F by the end of the week! Luckily they gym I train at stays pretty cool because there's no way they'd turn the AC. The building is 53,000 square feet (and there is no AC, I'm just speaking hypothetically). The building used to be a cannery back in the day and my coach (the owner) put in a couple of those Big Ass Fans (that's the actual name) so it's bearable! The part that sucks is getting in my car to drive home afterwards. Luckily there is AC in it! And I always have an ice cold FitAID to chug when I'm done. As I was chugging my FitAID on the way home the other day and thinking about how tan I could get in this heat (if I could bare laying out in it) I started imagining myself at the beach with a cocktail in my hand. You know, what we all day dream about right?
