Hello, hello, and happy humpday Thursday! I am wonderfully delirious at the moment.Yesterday Tuesday was an exceptionally good day :). It was at lunchtime, the period of twenty minutes that it took me to savor this mega-delicious salad and pita, that I remembered that it would be a big night. To prepare, I made sure to buckle down and be productive that afternoon. I drove on over to Freedom of Espresso in Fayetteville to do just that, but not before a good run through it's historic neighborhoods. Unfortunately, about 5 minutes into it, it began to rain, and in the 5 minutes after that, I realized that I could not go sit in a café and work if I looked and smelled like a wet dog. So instead, I stopped, sat, read, wrote, and studied.
That is, until seven, when I rushed back for a delicious dinner. I was so excited that Carol was serving salmon that night, it is by far my favorite fish. Speaking of protein, (because, oh, we were) I've been craving it, a lot. It's to the point where a few times (and it pains me to admit this) I have "snuck" a few bites of turkey or chicken. I can't figure out what my problem is. I was thinking I should get a blood test soon, but I can't imagine that I have any vitamin-deficiencies.
Do you see that plate of predominately veggies? Exactly. The protein cravings are making uncomfortable though, and I don't want to overeat other carb-rich foods to try to appease them. I usually have fish with dinner and I try to have a good serving of hummus, avocado, or soy beans at lunch so...? Have any protein-rich suggestions for me? I would truly really appreciate it!
Anyway, following dinner and primping, a group of 15 embarked on the birthday bar crawl. We were dressed to kill ;) and that we did. We began at the pub, moved to the retired surfers bar, and then made our way to the sports bar. As promised, I drank lightly and had a fabulous time.
I also may have gone back to Lucy's (the retired surfer's bar) to dance the end of the night away with friends, old and new. And then, I went back home to our TV room in hysterics as a few members of the Syracuse Crunch team humored us with their jokes. As a result, it was 4 a.m. by the time bed time rolled in, and I've been exhausted from the time I woke up this yesterday morning. Good thing it was more than worth it.
Upon waking I threw my hair up, got dressed in my workout clothes, ate this delightful bowl of a breakfast, and headed back to Fayetteville. Sadly though, my schoolwork took longer than planned and I was rushing back to campus on a caffeine-high before I had a chance to finish my run. On the way, I asked my roommate to check in with me later to make sure I didn't miss it. She obliged, offering a description of one of more form-fitting outfit choices as motivation... and I laughed as I strolled into Comm. Law. I run to feel a sense of accomplishment, I run without music so that I can clear my head, and I run outside to honestly explore my surroudings on each unique route (that's why I loved running abroad.) The physique part is just a plus ;). Are you a runner? Why?
