Good morning. It’s Tuesday and I’ve decided that today is the day I get back into running and working out regularly. The past few weeks have been a bit hectic and I have been slacking on working out. Tonight I am hitting the gym and plan to run at least 4 miles.
This morning I started with some oatmeal with agave nectar and raisins. Something about the fall just makes me want warm oatmeal in the morning.
Now I have to recap a bit from last night. Last night I met up with Katie for dinner and another book reading. We headed to Republic in Union Square and I had the Wonton Broth Noodles, which had wontons filled with shrimp, pork and vegetables, and also had glass noodles, cabbage and chinese greens. It was very good, but I forgot to take a picture!
After dinner we headed to Barnes and Noble in Union Square to hear Augusten Burroughs read from his new book: You Better Not Cry. I’ve only read Running with Scissors previously. The portion he read was hysterical and he got really into it – doing different voices and everything. The book is a compilation of short stories about the holidays and the crazy things that go, the drama, etc. He’s based a lot of his books on his life and this one is no different. Here are a few pictures from the event:
Tonight it’s back to the gym and also back to eating at home. I can’t believe how much I’ve been eating out. I try to be aware of what I’m choosing when eating at restaurants and now I have a handy tool to help me out…more on that later!
Question: Do you have any tricks or tips you like to use when dining out to try to eat healthy?
