Hello and happy Thursday! I hope everyone's having a fabulous day. Mine's been going pretty well so far... I went to the gym, had a yummy lunch... what more could a girl ask for?
Last night before bed I had the other half of my Zone chocolate almond bar... it didn't grow on me at all. Yuck.
I slept in until 10:30 today, which was g-l-o-r-i-o-u-s. I had a hard time falling asleep last night, so the extra hours felt great.
I woke up and had a packet of maple sugar instant oatmeal and an apple. I bought four Galas last night, and I've already eaten three of them!
I went into Manhattan to meet up with George. He kindly offered me guest passes to his gym, and I can use them the whole time I'm home! Woohoo!
I stopped at Au Bon Pain and got a small coffee to go (3/4 Morning Blend, 1/4 Hazelnut with a skim milk):
My workout was GREAT. It's been exactly a month since I last went to the doctor for my stress fracture, which means I can step my workouts up a little. George showed me how to use the stairmill, which I loved.

I didn't end up getting home until 4, and I was STARVING. I made another strange sandwich: tuna on cinnamon raisin bread with cheddar, lettuce and roasted red peppers.
My dad made another Moosewood soup: Potage à la Bretonne (with leeks, navy beans, oninons, etc). DELICIOUS.
My eyes were bigger than my head, and I only ended up eating about half of the soup. I'm a good full, though!
I've been alternating between Oxygen and MTV. Have you ever seen the dating show "Next"? It is SO HORRIBLE. It promotes the WORST ideals I've ever seen (superficiality, misogyny, you get the idea). Most reality shows are kind of like this, but it's the worst in this genre I've seen. It put me into such a bad mood!
I'm going to go meet Greg for coffee. Have a lovely evening!
