Gambling Fool

Wednesday already, huh?  That came quickly, (TWSS).  Side note, Darren threatened to lock me out of our hotel room if I said that one more time over the weekend, haha.  I’m dragging a little today thanks to last nights activities, so forgive me if I’m not as hilarious and entertaining as usual.

After a full nights rest on Monday night, I was more than ready to get myself back in the gym yesterday.  What I wasn’t sure of, was what I wanted to do.  I eventually found myself on what I now know is called the AMT (Adaptive Motion Trainer).  Previously known as, the crazy range of motion elliptical.  I liked it, and after 33 minutes I was dripping with sweat.  I closed out my cardio session with 1.25 miles on the treadmill, 9:05 pace, 3% incline.  I figured it was the best way to make the most out of a short run.

After work I hit up Trader Joe’s where I stocked up on a major supply of fruits and veggies, and wine.  One bottle to thank Adrienne for taking me to and from the airport last week, one bottle for the other roommates birthday present, and one bottle for me :).  I also bought almond butter, because I’m going to try to will myself to like it.  All the articles I read about healthy fats and snacks piss me off, because every single one recommends eating almonds and crap.  Guess what, I fucking hate almonds, peanuts, cashews, blah, blah, blah.  What the hell am I supposed to eat?  No seriously, someone tell me!  I’m currently eating berries and almond butter, and not enjoying it at all.  Oh, and please don’t say greek yogurt or oatmeal because I’ll have to punch you.

Anyway, moving on.  Adrienne has wanted to host a poker night for a while, and last night was the night.  Two of our guy friends came over, and the four of us gambled our money away until just passed midnight, aka when I turn into a grouch.  I started out doing pretty well, but eventually had to buy back in, and then finally accept my losses once my $10 was gone.

It reminded me of high school when I used to beg Darren to let me come to poker night (he usually said no) and play with him and the older guys from the grocery store we worked at.  Who, now that I think about it, were probably the age I am now, but seemed so old to my stupid 17 year-old self.  That’s sad to think about.  It was fun, but I drank way too much wine and stayed up way too late for a Tuesday, now I want to take a nap.

Adios suckas.

  1. Ugh, godspeed with the almond butter. I hated it. I just eat the plain almonds, I prefer.

  2. For my snacks 99.9% of the time eat some kind of over processed bar (Kashi, Zone, Luna, etc…) and you know what? I don’t care. I like it, it fills me up and that’s that! ha! 🙂

  3. If I were you, I’d make peanut butter cookies. You may find the almond butter/peanut butter/whatever more tolerable. Nevermind the amounts of sugar you’d also be consuming. Minor details…

  4. I only like raw almond butter. The other stuff is gross. Maybe that will make a difference?
    You can eat it with apples, I prefer peanut butter with apples because the almond butter kind of loses its flavor against the apple, but if you don’t like almond butter that might be a good thing.

  5. I love poker, but if it goes on too long I get annoyed and careless with my chips.
    On another note, I made my own almond butter and put white chocolate chips and dried cranberries in it and was much improved from the others I’d bought in the past. Also edamame are delicious when covered in sea salt and you can buy them in the steam ready bags, if you’re into that sort of thing.

  6. How fun! I have no idea how to play poker, but it sounds like a good time.
    You rock with the workouts. I have worked out since… last Wednesday.

  7. haven’t

  8. Don’t force yourself to eat something you don’t like. Olives and avocados are another source of healthy fats. I put avocado on EVERYTHING.

  9. 2 things that I love about Trader Joe’s… waffles and wine. And sadly, I’m not even kidding.
    Haha you crack me up. Almond butter.. sometimes I like it, sometimes I don’t. Have you tried Barney Butter? It tastes less… almondy than most almond butters but it’s really really really really damn expensive.

    Glad we are FB friends 🙂
