How's THAT for a title?? Before I jump into yesterday's food, I want to mention a few things that haven't made the blog yet.
First, I posted on Tuesday about my fabulous Marathon Monday experience...but I left out a juicy little tidbit.
Melissa and I took the train in together, so we decided to meet at the Quincy Adams T station. Since I'm a complete freak about parking (I refuse to pay to park and will avoid doing so at all costs) I parked at the Home Depot next to the train station.
As I am walking along the sidewalk, minding my own business (a rare occurrance for me) I see what I think is someone smoking behind the wall. As I get closer I see that he is not in fact smoking, but peeing. And he is facing the sidewalk. With his junk out. I got a full frontal eyeful (much like the time a 16 year old trench coat mafia kid masturbated in front of me on the train a few years ago, but that's a whole other story).
Obviously he can see that I am coming down the sidewalk, but doesn't put it away. Perhaps he is considering using this opportunity as a pick up line. Thankfully he does not and casually shakes it off finally and zips up just as I am walking by.
While I am waiting for Melissa inside I see the same guy and desperately try to avoid eye contact...it is obvious we both saw each other and I would like to pretend it just never happened. Luckily he turned and walked right by me.
Nothing like starting your day off with an eyeful of penis. <---TWSS.
On a completely different note, I neglected to mention that the other day I came home to flowers. They were "just because" flowers, which are the absolute best kind. They came home looking like this:
But then quickly went to looking like this thanks to the Queens of Destruction:
Oh well. It's the thought that counts.
Now onto yesterday's food! I have told the boy several times (so much so that he repeats it verbatim back to me all the time) "the happier I am the happier YOU are," which translated to chocolate chip pancakes for him yesterday morning as a thank you for the flowers (pancakes are a pain in the ass during the week).
Lunch was a grilled cheese and tomato sandwich with a side of the Chicken Spietzel soup from Brueggers (surprisingly good if you ever find yourself at Brueggers).
Dinner was some sauteed brussel sprouts and a sweet potato to make up for my serious lack of veggies yesterday.
I also had a mid morning snack of a banana (unpictured).
I have been going to spin class Monday, Wednesday, and Friday mornings and have to say that I am really loving it. I had forgotten how much I loved it since running often takes all of my focus, but since deciding to downgrade my half marathon to the 5 mile portion, I am free to enjoy whatever workouts I want without worrying about getting my 4 runs a week in. I have been getting 2 runs in a week and feel really good about it.
So tell me, have you ever seen something you wished you hadn't?
