Happy 4th of July! [WIAW]

I’m back in Spokane after spending all of July in Yakima 😉 I am loving July’s challenge from Jenn – get your fitness in friends!

Breakfast was eaten on my parents deck with a lovely view,

and Zoey begging for food 🙂

Egg + bacon + Tillamook cheddar on Dave’s Killer Bread (my dad calls it Dave’s prison bread),

and 2% cottage cheese with a peach and some cherries.

Fitness: 50 minutes/3 miles on my mom’s elliptical while watching House Hunters. I am not supposed to get my heart rate above 140, which used to be really difficult to achieve. But now that I am 6 months along I am moving much slooooooower and am easily in the 140 range 🙂


Eaten en route to Yakima – peanut butter and honey on Dave’s Killer Bread, 1 orange bell pepper, 1/2 an English cucumber, an apple,

a Venti SBUX passion iced tea lemonade and some trail mix

The drive between Yakima and Spokane is very drab, but there is one beautiful spot that lasts about 5 minutes when you cross the Columbia River. I took the opportunity to stretch at the Wild Horses Monument.


Sadly, pizza – our propane tank wasn’t full enough for steak, so we ran out to get some only to discover they didn’t fill after 7. So we went around to find one, but by the time we filled up I was starving and was not going to wait unil 9 to eat.

DPatriotic homemade blueberry pie a la mode (recipe soon)

How did you celebrate the 4th of July?
