Beer, Baseball & Bruins

Um... I was doing great today till after work. Let's recap.

-oats made with water & almond milk
-topped with almond butter, walnuts, ground flax & maple granola
-side of STRONG green tea

I started to get hungry by 10:30. But I had no food in my desk and no money for the cafeteria. Then someone had food at their desk by 11am. So I headed to the gym.

Today was a speed workout day. 5 miles with 3 miles at a 7 minute pace.
I was doing well, 1 mile warm up and then running a 7 minute pace on the treadmill.
However, I ran into a guy I knowing from my running club. He is talker.
So me trying to run a 7 minute pace and trying not to be rude.... not pretty.
He is also a fast runner, so to him a 7 minute pace is nothing.
When he finally left I had done 2 miles at that pace. I had to bring it down for the last mile, 7:15 pace. Then cooled down with a relaxing last mile.

I'm not sure if it was the talking or what, but those 7 minute miles whooped me.

Oh and then after cooling down & stretching out I hit the locker room.....sweaty gross me....... and then realized I had no towel.


Made do with paper towels and a long sleeved fleece that was in my gym bag.

I was happy to finally get to eat my lunch though.

-spaghetti squash w/ marinara and left over veggies (broccoli & turnips)

I really should have brought an afternoon snack. By the end of the day I was starving.

I headed home to the dad & the dog. The dad wanted to go out and who was I to go against the patient's wish. He wanted his first post-op beer.

We headed to an italian place that has $2.50 drafts on Thursday.
Mmmhhh.... Sam Octoberfest.

The hubby had a function and was going to be awhile, so we ordered an appetizer.

HUGE bruschetta. Don't worry, we didn't eat it all.

Had another beer.... or two.
Then the hubby arrived with co-workers and we ordered more food.

My HUGE dish (notice a trend here)
It was a pasta dish with chicken, prosciutto, mushrooms & cheese.
Yum. I ate maybe half..... I guess I was hungry.
So dinner was eaten in the bar. With lots of TV's around us.... the Bruins were on, my dad's favorite team. The Yankees were on, my hubby's favorite team. Whenever my dad visits I am guaranteed A LOT of sports. I have watched maybe a half hour of news this week and MANY MANY hours of sports. Ack! Thank goodness for Tivo, I'll catch up on my shows this weekend.... Biggest Loser, yay!

Do you watch much tv? Do you watch much sports? I really don't watch that much. I just have a few shows I like. But typically I do marathon session and they usually result in me going to bed WAY too late. Once I start I cannot stop.

Alright. Speaking of way too late, I need to not stay up to late.... again.

Have a great night!

  1. WOW! You are speedy! I hope to be able to run that fast some day! Glad dad is doing well! Sam's beers rock! Their winter larger is one of my favorite beers. Looks like a tasty meal. I do watch football (college and pro). Show wise- I watch a lot of food network, Lost, The office, and entourage (religious about these). Others I will watch if they're on: So You Think You Can Dance, American Idol, Real Housewives, Top Chef (reality junk ;))
