Fish Out of Water

Musings and observations about life from an East Coast native now living on the Left Coast in the California State Capitol since 2004. This fish has made her home in Madison, WI (7 years); Portland, OR (2 years); Las Vegas, NV (7 months); Middlebury, VT (3 summers); Marne-la-Vallee, a small town east of Paris, France (6 months); Middletown, CT (3 years); and Marshfield, MA, the fish's coastal hometown 40 miles south of Boston (17 years).

Location: Sacramento, California, United States


Day 172: Member Appreciation Day

Today was Member Appreciation Day at the CAC.  Throughout the day, the staff held fitness contests (rowing, burpees, sit-ups) and also provided food and beverages for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.  Mr. E took advantage of the lunch and dinner offerings and brought home a lemon poppyseed muffin for later, and I snagged part of a pumpkin muffin for a mid-morning snack. 

I think it's great that the CAC has started having these types of events for members, but I do find it rather amusing (and somewhat ironic) that the majority of the lunch and dinner food offerings were not entirely healthy -- hot dogs and hamburgers -- ha!  Supposedly garden burgers were also available, but that's such a token item aimed more at vegetarians than at folks trying to be healthy in general.

The only redeeming item for the later meals was a fresh fruit salad, which I did enjoy on the way home from Pilates this evening.  But it's still rather disappointing that there weren't any other healthier options for the main meals.  Not even grilled chicken, for example???
