Is a Bloody Mary with Olives a Vegetable Serving??

If so, I got in my 4 servings today!!!!

I started off my day very motivated.  I woke up around 9, which is sleeping in nice enough without wasting the entire day.  After coffee, I started baking some tofu I marinated overnight and looked up the Y schedule.
I know I keep whining about the need to strength train, and how much I hate it (I find it infinitely boring).  I went through all the trouble of getting set up for the Fitlinxx thing, I may as well use it.
So after baking the tofu and making some spring rolls (tofu, cabbage, onion, and siracha), I headed off to the gym for a workout!
It had been so long since I had used my Fitlinxx login, I had to ask one of the trainers to reactivate my access.  I did one set of each machine, which is about all my attention span can handle.  It’s strange – I don’t mind going for a run that takes 3 hours, but the thought of doing any type of weight lifting is absolutely dreadful.  I’m trying to get myself to commit to 3 days a week of this.  I really know I need to…I even WANT to…but it’s just SO BORING.  Maybe I need to find a workout partner…maybe it wouldn’t suck so much.  It’s unlikely, but a girl can dream.
Anyway, after the gym, I went to Target and wandered around for a bit.  It started pouring, so I had an excuse to buy a new umbrella!  It’s actually all I bought…which for anyone who knows me and my obsession with Target, is pretty amazing. 
I headed to Wild Wing to meet up with my friend S for some bloody mary’s!  I got there about 20 minutes early and started reading our new book club book (Robert LundlumBourne Identity).  We hung out for a couple hours, drank our bloody mary’s ate our olives (I even had some pretzel bites!), and headed out.  I’m feeling pretty good…I worked out, had a LOT of vegetables (I’m assuming it counts), and now I’m going to spend the rest of the day doing as little as possible.  It’s a Sunday.  I’ve earned it!
