I got to sleep in today, which was quite nice. But I still set my alarm for 10:30 so I wouldn’t get too messed up. I had 2 cups of delicious coffee (ff milk and ff vanilla creamer) and then left to hit up the gym. My feet and legs were REALLY tired for some reason, so I did tons of stretching in the morning and then after my work out too. It must be from being on my feet ALL day yesterday. Seriously, I was up at 5 am and then walked from the subway to work, was on my feet for a 12 hour shift, went to the gym, and then walked a majority of the way home…so since I didn’t get back home until 10 pm, that means I was on my feet for 16 hours+ (no wonder my feet were dead). Still, I got a good work out in. I went nice and slow on the elliptical alternating between high and super high resistance. Then I tried a few new strength training moves I read about in shape magazine. After my work out it was already 2 pm, I wasn’t that hungry for some reason, but I also knew I should eat right away since I was going to dinner with Marisa and Heather at 7. I decided on half an apple (only half because it wasn’t that good) and yogurt covered raisins and the salty edamame I got at WF. SO good I could have eaten the entire container, but I somehow managed to stop myself, even though I was way full, I could have kept going for sure.
For dinner, we went to Max (lower east side) which was a complete pain in the ass to get to! Marisa and Heather both ordered pasta dishes, while I got the salmon special (red wine and honey glaze with a side of green beans). I have been having a lot of fish lately! The sauce was insanely sweet, almost to the point of being sickening, but naturally I finished the whole thing. The beans were fine, nothing remarkable. Honestly, the whole dish was just so-so, nothing I would be inclined to recommend, but it was more about the company anyways. We all split a bottle of white wine (it was a pinot grigio) which was nice since it was about a million degrees outside. Anyways, after dinner I walked back to Marisa’s apartment with her and then took the subway home. I think I will be glad next month when the restaurant will be in Marisa’s neighborhood, the west village is way easier to get to after all…now I am watching football and waiting for Kyle to get home.
