Oh the Madness!

Happy Friday y’all! I’ve been super swamped at work the past two days, and by that I mean I’ve been live streaming March Madness and keeping track of my bracket. It’s intense, and awesome. I’m 13/17 picks wise at the moment, that epic Duke loss luckily screwed most everyone I’m in a pool with and not just me. So bring on the Madness, ha!

We’re currently sitting 16 days away from Cherry Blossom, and while I’m still not entirely sure my body is going to make it without completely falling apart I’m giving it my best. 4.12 miles last night in 40 minutes, and my tomorrow my first attempt at a long run since March 1. I also did a lot of foam rolling this week which seems to have broken up some of the tightness along my right IT Band, but has also left me feeling like someone repeatedly punched me. Really hard. You win some you lose some.

The weather for tomorrow looks fantastic though, and I’m interested to see how I feel in some warm weather. Then I plan on planting my ass somewhere outdoors, drinking some beers, and watching more basketball. Basically an ideal day right there, and I plan on embracing this one day of warm weather, because well then there’s this.

photoI can’t even. GTFO of here winter. Let’s move on to something less depressing than the thought of snow on March 25, I used a majority of my bonus this year to pay off 1) my couch that I bought last summer 2) my American Express card 3) my J.Crew card and 4) a large portion of my Master Card balance, but I saved just a little bit to get some thing for myself that I could use.

new running kicks… neon naturally

I also could use a new pair of white jeans, and some new sheets as mine are rapidly approaching 4 years old and are kinds wearing thin. Anywhoodle, that’s all from me. Hope all your brackets aren’t completely busted yet, keep your fingers crossed for me on my long run tomorrow!

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!
