I've been fairly good with my food this week though! I barely recovered from my vacation damage last week, so I knew that if I ate badly during this dreaded time of the month, I'd blow up like a fish. I even went to an outdoor movie in Pasadena last night (The Goonies!) where there was an abundance of yummy food trucks, and I managed to make healthier choices too! It's always so hard to do with all the good food around. I am really liking LA's food truck culture. I don't know about other cities, but tons of gourmet food trucks started popping up all over the place here in the past 5 years or so. I love it. The food is always good and creative, and there's tons of variety.
I took some pictures from last night's outdoor movie - it was fun! It was at the Pasadena City Hall which is very pretty. I actually hadn't been back there since I went there to take my engagement pictures 3 years ago. It kind of made me ponder the past a little. I know I didn't talk about my marriage and subsequent divorce on here much, partly because I didn't want him to read it or use it against me in any way. A girl's gotta be careful, you know?! But now that all is said and done, I strongly believe it was the right decision to get out of it. When I think back on it, I just get this depressed feeling, like having a dark cloud over my head. I still think he is a nice, decent guy, but in a lot of ways he was dragging me down. Having a partner who is able to bring the best out of you is a big deal, and I just didn't have that in him. My only regret about that whole situation is going through with it to begin with. Now I have to say that I'm divorced. But, that's a small price to pay for a much happier life! I'm actually quite annoyed that those pictures went to waste though. I like them! I wish I could cut the guy out of them... lol!
I don't know why I digress so much. I guess it's kind of interesting looking back and wondering how different life was just a short couple years ago. But anyways, I went to the movie there last night with my bf, one of my good friends and her bf. The only thing we didn't count on was that we were going to be sitting on cement as opposed to grass. So we didn't bring cushy enough blankets and our butts paid the price by the end of the night. I took some pictures there - lots of people showed up and brought their dogs! It was cool, and the weather is so nice in Pasadena when it is like 10 pm and 80 degrees still. Of course, that means it's unbearably hot during the day, which is why I never go to that part of town.
Ok, getting back on track.. here are this week's workouts and outfits!

Lululemon Principle jacket as to and from - the bold blue of the jacket is quite a good match to the Lorna Jane Quick Step bra!

What I did: Today was the double workout day! Lower body workout, followed by upper body supersets. I'm one cardio session short for the week, but I don't really care about cardio too much.
