Yesterday in bullet form.

  • I resisted office donuts yesterday morning.

    I just liked this picture. It reminded me of my friend HD Jones.

  • I went to the company fitness center and ran. I RAN. This is huge. I haven't run in... god, since elementary school maybe? I have always HATED running. It is hell to me. But I pushed myself and while doing a treadmill interval workout, I did a few spurts (like 2-3 minutes) (heh "spurts") of running at 4.2 to 4.5 mph. I know, that's slow as molasses, but whatevs, I'm proud. #notamotherrunner hahahaha. I'm going to attempt to work up to more, but for now, I am really happy with that.

  • I got a killer chicken souvlaki pita from The Pita Pit, which was holy hell amazing. Sorry I didn't take pictures, I was too busy stuffing it into my face. It was a wheat pita with marinated chicken, tzatziki sauce, spinach, tomatoes, red onion, feta, sprouts, and hummus. I think I am going to go get another one, seriously. It was THAT GOOD.

    My actual Pita Pit where I plan to visit again today because YUM.
  • I went out with the bf and a girl from work + her bf, and had a fantastic time. I drank two beers which was more than enough, then drank a ton of water and only feel a teensy bit dehydrated today. We trolled the bar by playing stuff like the theme from "Knight Rider" and "Flight of the Valkyries". I am so happy I met this girl from work, because she is an awesome liberal feminist nerd like me and just yaaay new friends.

    It was very tasty. Also: mustaches.

  • My darling Holly from Mama Bear Blogs posted an entry about ME and omg I literally welled up. She is such a good friend to me, and I adore her ginger babby child. Holly and I have been friends for a good... 6? 7? 8? years, something like that, I just love her to pieces. Every year we have a cookiepalooza where we bake a shit-ton of Christmas cookies and it is just the best. GOD I LOVE HER.

    Ginger babby is coming for your soul.


  1. There is a sign in front of the treadmills at my gym that says "you don't have to go fast, you just have to go" and I LOVE that mindset. I am not a fast runner and I don't know if I ever will be and I really struggle with that. My boyfriend is faster than me and I always, always, always compare myself to him and really, that's pretty dumb because comparing yourself to others is dumb. So don't worry about how fast or slow you think you are, you are out there! Running! And that is awesome :)

    That been looks delicious. Lemon peel, yum!

  2. Way to go girl! I'm so proud of you/happy for you; you've stuck with it consistently and you're seeing results!

    Also, that Pita sounds amazing. I am jealous.

  3. Resisting donuts is like resisting arrest in that I can't imagine doing it. Treadmills are a great place to run when starting out because it's so much easier on your joints. Good for you. Yay, running.

    Your friend who wrote the post seems nice, but I can't tell if she's being serious when she refers to herself as a mother runner.

    1. I have to resist them. Otherwise I will EAT ALL OF THEM.

      She is super nice, and yes, she is serious. I have poked fun at her, but if it makes her happy and she feels like a part of that niche, more power to her, you know?

  4. You know I love you!

    And The Pita Pit. I love The Pita Pit.
