Hi, friends! Happy New Year! Did you have fun celebrating last night? We went to my aunt and uncle’s house for appetizers and soups.
So much food! We hung out for a few hours before coming home to pop champagne with our immediate family.
Workout – Running
Did you do a resolution run (or workout) today? I slept in and headed outside around 9 a.m. for snowy 45 minutes. Nothing too exciting to report—expect some unplanned speedwork when a dog started chasing me! Luckily, it was a small doggie that promptly returned to its owner when called. Whew!
Since we were out of spinach this morning (the horror!), I added chopped red pepper to my egg-white sandwich.
Plus some Sriracha,. My mom and I had some errands to run, so I also ate a sliced pear with PB.
Random, but delicious.
Our first two stops this afternoon included a visit to my grandparents’ house to pick up a sewing machine and a trip to Barnes and Noble so I could get a book for the train ride back to New York City. Before I found a copy of Wild by Cheryl Strayed, I stumbled upon this display.
And if being ambushed by Downton Abbey spinoffs weren’t enough, the section next to it included a ton of triathlon books. Well played, B&N. I almost bought Race Weight: How to Get Lean for Peak Performance by Matt Fitzgerald, but I didn’t want to carry another book home. Don’t worry—I added it to my Amazon.com shopping cart.
Next up, we went to Wegmans, aka the happiest place on earth.
Although I’ve become a fan of Trader Joe’s and Whole Foods, Wegmans will always be my favorite.
A trip to Wegmans meant my standard sushi and soup for lunch.
Citrus tofu roll and rotisserie chicken noodle soup for the win!
While at Wegmans, we also picked up a new toy for Zelda. Besides some chew sticks and cookies from the Union Square Holiday Market, she didn’t get any real Christmas presents; Zelda tends to destroy new toys in minutes, so it doesn’t make a lot of sense to keep buying her stuff she rips apart. However, this squirrel’s package said it would be “long lasting,” so we figured what the heck.
Zelda’s been playing with the squirrel for 30 minutes now, and it’s still intact!
What did you do for NYE? How did you spend your first day of 2013?
