wheels on the bus

ok, this will be a quick post, since i'm exhausted! even though this week went by pretty fast, for whatever reason the days felt sooo long.

i forced myself to go to the gym after work even though i wasn't really feeling it (motivating this week has been tough!). i did have a cup of coffee before i went, which definitely helped, but it was a slow, challenging workout.

  • 5 mile run @ 8:57 minute mile pace (stopped twice for water breaks!)
  • total time: 45 minutes 10 seconds
  • total calories burned: 495 (although i really don't trust the treadmill's accuracy- need that garmin!)
  • my sit-up workout from high school- 25 of various different ab exercises, all who's names i do not know, and am too tired to try and figure out, although it started with regular crunches, ended with the bicycle crunches
i also waited about 25 minutes for the local bus after the gym , which i was NOT happy about! i like taking the bus better than the subway, because it's more convenient, you can talk on the phone, etc. etc. but there's no reason why you should have to wait close to half an hour for a city bus down second ave. near midtown at the end of rush hour. NO REASON!

now that i got that off my chest, here's what was for dinner:

  • 1 trader joe's sweet italian chicken sausage on one slice whole wheat bread, with 1 slice soy cheese and some ketchup
  • asparagus roasted with olive oil, garlic salt, pepper
  • pineapple for desert

i sort of paid attention to 30 rock and the office during dinner. i wanted to get so much more done tonight but it will just have to wait until tomorrow.

i'm off to bed - goodnight!
