As the title (and the name of my blog) suggests, it’s going to be just that. Hold on tight and try not to get lost.
I’m glad you guys liked some of the tips for not overdoing the sweets last night. I was somewhat nervous about posting it since diet choices/lifestyles can be such a personal and sometimes touchy subject.
New google search terms that people used to get to my blog that are worth mentioning:
What are the seats like at second city? I assume you mean the Second City Theater. I can answer that for you. It’s tight seating and cabaret-style. Please don’t let this deter you from going. It’s a great time and they’re nonstop hilarious. You’re welcome.
Saw Russell Brand walking down the street. I’m sort of jealous of you mystery google-search-person…
Bug Went Up Nose. I’m sorry. That sucks. I’ve been there. We actually had the debate a few months ago here on the blog. That’s still not as bad as having a bug fly into your eye. I promise you.
It’s Friday Bitches. Sounds like someone’s pretty excited. One more day… woot woot.
Ok, enough of that and moving on…
Lunch yesterday was spent at a nearby grocery store. We were having a meeting that included pizza and adult beverages and I was more than happy to make the beer run because it gave me an excuse to get out of the office for a bit. So I got out and tacked it on to the end of my lunch. Didn’t mind a bit! The grocery store next to me has a seating area for all of us lunchers who need to escape, so I hit up the salad bar and settled down there for some down time.I’m still working through the book I won from Leah a few weeks ago in a giveaway. I really do like it so far- but I’m still only a little over half way through it…
The salad bar is an issue that Low also just discussed. The grocery store salad bar is a definite step up (and considerably cheaper) than the one in the cafeteria in my office building. My fav salad bars are the ones that include more than just “standards”- you know what they are- wilting lettuce, cauliflower, croutons, tomatoes, suspicious-looking pasta salad…
I was considerably happy with my salad today. Some of that had to do with the fact that I had the sense to buy a bottle of salad dressing beforehand. Everything offered at the bar is cream-based except for olive oil. And I’m not a huge fan of just oil. So that was a good idea on my part. Also, I never get my carrots. And check it out! They’re so cute hanging out in the corner… Finally, sometimes I like onions. Red onions in particular. Take note- please make sure to have an adequate amount of gum after eating said red onions. Don’t be that person… (this has been my public service announcement of the week)
My only thing is that they have a crappy selection of containers. I had to fill my, for lack of a better word, TUB with salad and make sure to not go overboard at the same time. I have no idea how people can fill and then eat the entire thing. Whew!
Ok- I’m feeling goofy, so do we have any really good salad bar horror stories?
I ran last night. Yes. Yes I did. As you may have read yesterday, I was a little nervous. The shins are throwing some fits and we’re having issues coming to an understanding. Not so much an understanding, but a realization of who’s boss up in here. I wore my new shoes and let me just say- running in those babies is like running on the clouds. Wonderfulness. Hey Fleet Feet dude- I don’t remember your name, but you ROCK. I may love you. Just a little. No restraining order necessary. Promise.
Anyways, I got lost for a minute there… So I ran three miles. And then I slowed down and walked to feel out the situation at hand. I felt ok. Not winded at all. But, most importantly, the leg felt ok. So I breezed through another mile and called it a night. This morning I feel fine. We’re still being diligent about icing and listening to the legs. But I’m hoping this means I’m in the clear.
Happy Thursday everyone! I’ve got a day of work and then am picking up my friends at the airport! I still have to work tomorrow, but having visitors here will hopefully make it go by quickly! See ya later!
