Let's go over all the amazing things going on in my life right now!
I had a really great run this morning. 7.3 miles and I refused to let the pace killers in the last 1.5 get me. Take that bitches!
We've been juicing. We were at the mall and stumbled upon a juicer at GNC for half price! We've only had it for two days, so I can't yet attest to miraculous healing/detoxing powers that this machine has brought us. So far I feel like we waste a lot. For every 10 pounds of pulp in the pulp catcher we only get an ounce of juice. Does anyone know of anything you can do with all that pulp? We already compost. Is there anything else?
I made another fantastic quinoa dinner the other night from this recipe that I found at Peas and Thank You. I am now experimenting with a protein bar recipe from that same blog. The pumpkin ones have turned out flavorless twice now, but the peanut butter protein bars just came out and they smell delicious. Let's hope they taste delicious.
Does swinging at the park count as cross training? Maybe not, but I did finally make it all the way across the monkey bars and my arms are crazy sore! It's all about controlling your flailing body so you exert less energy. Write that down.
I think I'm giving up on making the kids costumes this year. My mom had already sent them Batgirl and Superman so I think I'll just go with that. I hate it. I told myself that I would always make their costumes, but I'm having a lot of trouble getting creative this year. I still have a few days though. We'll see.
As I was taking the above pictures off my phone, I found this one that I had taken at the Brookstone in O'hare. I like the new direction the company is headed.
And last but not least, Angie's husband is somewhat of an internet celebrity the last few days. He attended one of the Rangers World Series games in his New York Rangers Hockey Jersey and caused quite a stir. Some Oberman guy (I'm sure the dudes know who he is) and some other dudes called him a "confused bandwagoner" here. I guess this guy is special because Doug was stoked that he slammed him. Albeit a very mild slam. He was also mentioned here and here. It's all pretty hilarious. Here is the pic that has been going around
interview that he posted earlier on facebook. I'm just excited because I finally know a celebrity! Yay me!!!!
