Mac & Cheese Is The Best Dinner

Today was another stressful one. My work To Do list is looking pretty good.

My life To Do list is another story.

Highlights of my post-work day included…

Making time for strength training. I left work with enough time before the class I was taking started that I was able to do some of my favorite weight things. This included bicep curls on an incline bench, tricep dips on a regular bench, ab fun, foam rolling and stretching.

I spun my heart out. Spinning was super hard tonight. All the “regulars” who go to class everyone week were in rough shape by the end. The music was great, the energy level was off the charts and my sweat was extraordinary. I went through two towels. Oh that’s right… I went underwearless this morning (though apparently most of you do that every day…) then sweat through two towels tonight. I try to be as sexy as possible.

I went for a nice walk. In my post-gym haze, I decided walking around midtown while on the phone with my darling grandmother was a better option than getting on the subway to go home and shower (which, by the way, I still haven’t done).

Bryant Park = great happy hour scene

I did dishes. What up, productivity?

I made dinner. And by “made dinner” I mean I chomped on baby carrots and ate a box of Annie’s macaroni and cheese.


I ate the head off a bunny. A chocolate bunny.

Also perfection.

I watched “Glee.” I’ll be honest, I think the show is losing steam. It hurts my heart to say that, but it just doesn’t have the same awesomeness it had in the first season.

Then I had to watch “Dancing With the Stars.” I normally love my job. I don’t love the “let’s write about bad TV shows” part of it though. But I managed to multitask by adding some photos to my Run For The Rabbit Facebook page. Woo!

So tomorrow is Wednesday. Another busy day. More meetings. More deadlines. No running.

You read that right. I’m not running tomorrow. No way. Running rest day.

Also, tomorrow at noon I find out if I’m in the ING NYC Marathon.

Crazy, right?

A few months ago I was running zero marathons. Now I’m definitely running the Hamptons Marathon. And if by some miracle I get into NYC through the lottery (my hopes aren’t very high — just about every runner I know is in the lottery) I’ll be running two marathons in 2011.

On that note, it’s off to bed. I didn’t drink too much water tonight so hopefully I’ll actually sleep through the night!

  1. What a great – albeit busy – day you had. See? All this good, positive vibe stuff is working! I especially dig that you got some weight work in, you talked to your grandmother (aww) and you are taking a for-real rest day today. Nice n’ balanced. Annnd not gonna lie, I was drooling over the annie’s mac ‘n cheese. Haven’t had that in SO LONG!! YUM.

  3. You didn’t go underwearless you wore the built in underwear! I never go without any undies! Crazy workout day for you. I really don’t know how you do it. Love Mac and cheese!

  4. I saw a special on the way people eat bunnies says something about their personality.. those who eat the ears/head first are more aggressive then those who choose another body part. I eat the ears first too!

  5. GL with the lottery tomorrow!! I know I shouldn’t get my hopes up, but I can’t wait to hear if year #2 is my year!!!!!!

    PS – When you walk by happy hours like that, doesn’t it make you want to have a brewski?! Beer gardens = heaven. Hooray for summer 🙂
