I cannot believe it is already September 1st! I have been enjoying a wonderful weekend, and I am ecstatic that it continues tomorrow! I am especially excited for my kayaking date tomorrow morning! Here’s to hoping I do not look like a complete nub.
As I approach my one year anniversary with my lifestyle change to eat healthy and be more active, I am trying to find balance in my life. I want to be able to live my life and enjoy it, but at the same time I want to be healthy. Yesterday, I decided to take a day off and just enjoy the season opener of Penn State football! So that is exactly what I did. I squeezed a work out in the morning, and ate like I usually would until we arrived at Fitgerald’s, an Irish Pub in Charlotte and a Penn State bar.
One of my favorite things about fall is college football. If there is one thing I miss most about college, it is Saturday home games at Penn State. The atmosphere is unbelievable, and I always had the time of my life tailgating then going to the game. Well, Fitzgerald’s brought back some old memories as we gathered at the bar, because I was surrounded by a ton of other Penn Stater’s. As I enjoyed maybe a few too many alcoholic drinks and far too many chicken wings (I definitely paid for this later with a nasty stomach ache), I watched Penn State play a spotty game against Syracuse. The game was sloppy, and it was definitely evident that both teams had new quarterbacks.
In the end Penn State won 23-17! YAY! I was a very happy girl! Here’s to a wonderful season. WE ARE!
