This is a sad year people. An email went out a couple days ago that because of lack of interest, no one was dressing up for Halloween this year. WTF?! I, of course, immediately sent an email and said that I was dressing up! Two other people I know are going to dress up, but it isn’t the same if everyone doesn’t do it, you know?
I still plan on taking lots of pictures so you’ll have to come back tomorrow to see what I dress up as this year!
So we are in the home stretch of my 170 mile challenge! When Helen left a comment on yesterday’s post, it never dawned on me that because of the hurricane Sandy, the New York Marathon might be cancelled or post-poned. I couldn’t imagine preparing for months for an event and then have it cancelled. My fingers are crossed for you Jacky!
So today was my 2-a day! I was hoping to divide my bike ride evenly between 8 miles before work and 8 miles during lunch. No such luck – the traffic sucked ass, and I only got just over 5 miles in before I had to head to work.
An unusual Biz breakfast is ahead – Carnation Instant Breakfast made with soy milk!
I was actually quite surprised that this held me through my lunch time workout – 12.3 miles baby!
17.12 miles done and done. Now I have 50 miles to go before Friday – the race is still on!
Lunch was leftover chicken tortilla soup, still good, I think it gets better the longer it sits, with some tostada nachos on the side.
I can’t be the only one that watches food network while they work out, am I? Although the time that I usually go is either Sandra Lee, Melissa D’arabian, or Anne Burrell. Sandra Lee kinda gets on my nerves, although I do like her money saving meals. Melissa is okay to watch, although she’s sometimes almost TOO perky? And Anne just thinks she’s all that and a bag of chips. And I can’t stand her hair.
Well the other day Melissa had a recipe for a three cheese Philly cheesesteak that looked really good. I chose to make a chicken version though since chicken cutlets were on sale last weekend. I liked the sandwich, but think its needs more seasoning. Tony liked it though! We both only ate half of sammies too – they were big! You can find Melissa’s version here.
So this morning is going to be a race. I have to pack up my costume, bring all my pot luck food, get to the gym and hopefully (yikes!) bike 16 miles before work, and then relax once I get to the office at 8:45.
And flashback – Hannah’s first Halloween costume!
Hannah was 7 months old – only 3 months later and she was walking no problem! Wow, does time fly?
Question of the Day: What was your favorite costume you ever wore? I have to say I was a hobo for three years straight. My mom put Vaseline on my chin and lip and put coffee grounds on it so it looked like I had stubble. It made it difficult to eat candy, but I loved how it looked!
Have a spooktacular day!
