Not 1 but 2 Starbucks Treats!

Umm, for no other reason than I wanted a Passion Tea to drink with my lunch today, and of course I had to have my Caramel Machiatto.  So Happy Friday everyone!  Yay we made it!

Yesterday started March Madness, did ya’ll fill out any brackets?  How are yours doing? This is the first time in years that I haven’t filled one out, and the past two years I had even taken off this day so that I could watch all of the games.  It feels kind of weird to not participate, but this weekend also held some bad memories for me the past two years so it is nice to know that won’t be possible again.  Nothing really tragic, my favorite pair of shoes and my bedroom floor got thrown up on (not by me), and last year was fighting and crying.  I was sitting on my couch last night indulging in how nice it felt to not be stressed and worried :).  I’m not really sure whether to credit the NCAA Tournament or the nice weather, but check out how empty my gym was at 5:30 last night:

Sorry it’s so blurry, but I was trying to not fall off the stair climber and discreetly snap a picture on the blackberry at the same time.  Typically every single one of those treadmills and ellipticals has people on it.  It was soooo nice to not have to wait for anything!  Last nights workout was a hodgepodge of different cardio machines so I didn’t get bored.

  • 15 minutes on the stair climber (does anyone else sweat more on this machine than any other?)
  • 15 minutes walking between a 10-12 incline on the treadmill
  • 15 minutes on the elliptical

I was going to lift some weights, but my stomach was really bothering me, so I did some stretching and abs and got out of there.  I figure I’ll have a nice long workout on Saturday to lift.  Mama dukes went out with her bf last night, so it was just me and I really didn’t feel like cooking for one, thank goodness for CPK pizzas.

Twas delicious.  I still think my favorite one is the White Pizza with Spinach though.  That was the last one in my freezer, time to hunt down some coupons and stock up on more!

Yes, I realize I eat an absurd amount of pizza, but it is my favorite food :).  The rest of my night was pretty uneventful, I made a Thursday cocktail, vodka and club, and talked to the bf on the phone.  He is currently traveling around the state of VA looking at law schools so I won’t see him until next weekend which is lame, but I guess his future is important.  Or something.  I’ll be supportive if he’ll be able to support me one day and I can stop working, hehe.  Ok I kid, I kid, sort of.

Yeah, that’s really all I have to say today, not to much happening.  I am wearing flip-flops though and it feels glorious!  My friend Alexis and I have plans to take our lunch outside and bask in the warm temps, so that should be delightful.  Have a fantastic Friday!

  1. ha ha- your gym is a ghost town! But that was probably a nice break from the norm.

    I’m not doing much for the NCAA tourney either. 😦 And I’m sneaking watching the Mizzou game by updates on my computer at work today…. shhhh!

  2. Thanks for starting the flip flop brigade! I’m right there with you. I just have to paint my toes and it’ll really be summer.
    Don’t apologize for lots of pizza- it’s truly the best meal out there. And I love CPK. So much flavor for a thin crust pizza, especially frozen!
    I also love when the gym isn’t packed. I don’t feel that anxiety and rush rush rush sensation.
    Have a great Friday!!

    • Yeah, the only problem is now that i’ve broken them out I won’t want to put them away. Which means there could still possibly be some pretty chilly feet days in my future.

  3. Ah! I wasn’t even reminded that the games started, thank goodness for Twitter! I love the tournament, last year when I was teaching one of the teachers (luckily in the adjoining room) had set up the games on his white board they were playing ALL day! It should be declared a national take a day off of work day! This year I’m pretty excited because my fav team (Syracuse) is in it to win it!
    Thank goodness for your gym being empty..thats the best!!

    AND there is NOTHING wrong with loving pizza and eating it all the time! 🙂

    Have a great weekend!

    • Oh I agree, I’ve read that this Thursday and Friday are the least productive days in an office. Ahh Syracuse, my little sis goes to Villanova so I’m rooting for them :).

  4. i think the CPK white pizza is my fav, too! 🙂

    also, i laughed out loud picturing you trying to take that pic while working out. 😉 glad you stayed safe!

  5. Sorry to hear about the sucky past two years… I’m with you there. March Madness and basketball in general have some bad memories for me. SO I avoid it. And even with this darn injury, I’m MUCH happier this year than the past few years.

    Yay for flip-flops!!!! I’m wearing them today, it’s supposed to be 75 degrees. Oh yeah. Loving the SC weather.

    • Yeah too much drinking and rowdy/gambling boys= bad times. Much much happier this year! I can’t wait to get outside after work!

  6. I bought a Kashi pizza the other day and weighed out how much a serving was. Well, there were 3 servings in the pizza. Once I figured out how much a serving was I was shocked…I ate the whole thing and still wasnt that full. Those kashi people are crazy!

    • Oh, I never eat the alloted serving size. Last night I left one slice and could have eaten it also, but leaving one little piece made me feel better haha.

  7. Seriously my bracket SUCKS right now!! Keith is killing me…I am so upset! The Georgetown and Vandy loss REALLY hurt me. Ugh!!

  8. yay for a double dose of starbucks!! what are fridays for if not to be completely frivilous?? 🙂

  9. Should I know what march madness is? Because I totally don’t.

    Also, I may have laughed out loud at your comment about why the gym picture is blurry. I’m in the line up at the bank right now so that got some looks. Yes- the lineup is so long I read this entire post and am still waiting. Fun!

    • Haha it’s ok. It’s the college basketball championship tournament. Each game is single elimination so if you lose you’re done. It takes place after all the Conference tournaments and the winners of those tournaments get an automatic spot and the rest of the teams are chosen by a committee. So basically if you win this tournament, your schools team is the best bball team in the country that year. It’s pretty exciting.

  10. Oh i could easily pound that much pizza! You must be missing your man. Enjoy the time your friend.

  11. It cost $20 to participate in my office pool so I didn’t do it. I’m a cheapskate!

  12. there is seriously WAY TOO much stress associated with the tourney for me. this is the first time since I was 8 (seriously) that I didn’t fill out a bracket. I also don’t have a tv anymore, so I can’t really watch games…it’s moderately pleasant!
