Monday, Monday, Monday.
1. I was watching the football game last night (GO GIANTS!) and realized I could NOT be a football player because I wouldn’t want to be on a field in the dead of winter. Obviously that’s the only thing stopping me from a career in the NFL, and not the fact that I have only a fuzzy idea of the rules of the game.
2. “Wine takes us from the world, and coffee restores us to it again. In between, we eat.” Um, yes.
From The Table Comes First by Adam Gopnik, which I’m currently reading. Don’t worry, I’ll be posting a review soon!
3. I was supposed to go to my first, intro CrossFit class on Saturday. I’ve been interested in giving it a shot basically since my boyfriend first called me announcing he’d puked in the bushes after a 12 minute workout a couple of years ago.
That probably says something weird about me.
First snowfall of 2012 here in D.C. And I was cold…. and didn’t want to trek to the other side of town to the CrossFit gym where the class was… Soooooooo… yeah. Instead I went running and drank red wine.
Maybe I’ll make it in spring?
5. Today = one week closer to my trip down to Florida! Not that I’m counting, or anything.
Three scrambled eggs and diner-style sauteed breakfast (sweet) potatoes. It literally held me over for a good four hours.
This means I stare at what the other women standing around the free weights are doing, and – if they look less deer in headlights than myself – I try to copy their moves.
So far I think it’s been effective.
Time to get to work!
What are you Monday things? How was your weekend??
