My work life drove me slightly insane this week. To combat it there was alcohol, there were tears, a Zumba class and hours of bad reality TV.
I'm happy to say I'm nearly back to normal.
Whatever that is. ;)
So without further adieu, I give you my week.
Monday was dinner at Northern Spy. I will cross post my review here. I need to post it to my class blog. The short version is that dinner was very good and the place was quite charming.
When I got home from dinner on Monday I was craving something sweet. Our desserts looked yummy but they were fruit filled and not my style.
This, on the other hand, is right up my alley.
Lunch. This was a BBQ Chicken wrap. In retrospect, kinda gross but I was starving. I ate half and threw out the other.
Tuesday night I went to an event at the Greenhouse and Rooftop.
Here's what I had. It was kind of difficult to take pics.
Some cheese, some chicken, some rice and asparagus.
Then, more wine + diet coke.
And potato skins.
Split (well I didn't split the wine) three ways with Maddy and Patti at West 3rd Common.
Wednesday. I can't even remember what I ate for breakfast and lunch. It was a pretty harrowing day.
But that didn't stop me from meeting Cort and Carrie for margaritas (and more) at Rodeo Bar.
Carrie and I split the appetizer medley known as The Trough. Seriously? Yes. We did.
For the record, Cowboy Kisses are pretty hot.
That's what she said.
Cortney ate a more reasonable plate of grilled chicken, black beans and tomato.
I don't know how to tell you this next part. I fear it is totally a location joke but we were highly amused by the placement of this candle on our table by one of the waitresses.
I bring you - the world famous (or famous at our table only) Sexy Dinner Candle.
So amused that after our third margarita we proceeded to take pictures like this.
Yeah. So. That happened.
I fell asleep with the hiccups.
Yesterday I had an egg sandwich for breakfast. I can't find the picture.
I had a 97% fat free hot dog and oven fries for lunch.
I went to Zumba and Ben welcomed me back with open arms.
Or maybe made me lift my heel up higher when we were doing these plie type thingamajigs.
After class I brought myself to the verge of hysterics about a work situation, consequently thought when Dave was a little late that he was mortally injured in a gutter or something, called my mom who told me she was going to come into the city and smack some sense into me, found Dave unscathed with a dying cell phone, stopped near the subway and ate really bad chicken wings (I insist they tasted like Weaver frozen drumsticks), called my mom to tell her Dave was alive, was asked by Jen if it was hard work making mountains out of molehills, refused to order a $23.00 grilled chicken sandwich and then went home and ordered from the diner down the street.
Someone named Anonymous who thinks he has a fan club :) had this sandwich.
And yeah. I ate a burger. It was that kind of week people. I cannot be held responsible.
And don't let him fool you. He ate his share of fries.
Today I had PB on an EM for breakfast, stopped on my way back to my apartment from an appointment for some pizza and ate this beauty for lunch.
And I had a snack of this delish root beer that I picked up with my pizza a bit later on.
Dinner could be seen as a representation of my current relationship.
Irish meets Italian. :)
This was whole grain pasta with just those 2 ingredients. I ate maybe 1/4 of it.
So the bottom line is I didn't really take care of myself food (and drink) wise but mentally I was a freaking mess. I'll just put it out there. So I'm not beating myself up too much. I'll be back on my game next week for sure.
I need to crank up the AC and get some sleep. I'm headed to NJ and then PA tomorrow morning.
Thanks for hanging in there while I dealt with life for a little bit. :)
Catch you later.
