Cold Stone, Beer, and Pizza...

What a combination!

Well, it’s a tired day today after tying one on with MNFirefly last night…OK, so we didn’t exactly “tie one on”…we met at Cold Stone for some vent time, particularly after her post from yesterday it can be seen why it was necessary. Poor girl…chocolate ice cream was definitely a necessity and we did indulge with chocolate decadence and oreo overload…we were polite and left Cold Stone prior to end of night (I’m not going to hold people up on going home!!) and headed over to Calhoun Square, which all but the bars were closed. We ended up at Figlio where they have late night (10-12) happy hour appetizers for $2, it was just after 9, but I sipped on a beer (the only one of the night) and we chatted more and when the $2 apps came mini burgers and mini pizza was yummy. We parted ways around 11, me realizing she hadn’t vented much, but she assured me it was enough and we have intentions of getting together again soon. I got home and crashed, but still didn’t sleep well. I’m struggling through the day right now, tired, so should’ve had coffee today!! And now I’m frustrated. I packed my bag for a run outside at lunch today. Figured about 6 miles and then on the way home tonight I was finally going to stop at the Sprint Store and look at phones and pick out a new one…well, I went down for my workout over lunch as normal, was pulling out all the crap I need to run outside in the cold (only running about 12 with the windchill right now) and realized no socks, but I did have a pair (just not running socks) to put on…when I discovered once again, no sports bra…sigh…so now I guess I go home after work and do my run and skip the Sprint Store yet again…although I suppose I could go there now, on my lunch break…hmm…that’s an idea…I just was looking forward to the run cause it was going to wake me up (at least that was the hope). Oh well.

Yesterday I managed a good workout day too. I did a lunch workout of 30 minutes on the elliptical trainer, 25 minutes of strength training and then after work a 4 mile run in 35:30 (8:52 pace). Not bad…I earned that Cold Stone, and beer, and pizza…oops…

Yes, the chocolate was VERY necessary. I just needed more than just the venting. It was good to get out of the house to just talk. I am starting to feel a little bit normal again. We will definitely need to get together when I get back from Phoenix.

I hope you get some sleep and that run in too.

P.S. OMG...I just got the same word verification for the THIRD time tonight - smenita - HOW creepy!

Ice cream, beer and pizza might just be the perfect venting trifecta! :)

A trip to the beach with Firefly would make it even better. She is probably ready to get out and enjoy a nice day at the beach also.

I think running without a sports bra on would be pretty interesting. Spoken from someone who's collecting money for boob job!
