Tuesday Score

[Before I begin with my usual blather, just a shout out today to South Beach Steve and Josie, going through rough times]

OK, back to judging myself: Hmm. I'd say I earned 7.5 out of 10 points -- 10 being a day when I eat totally on plan and work out as well.

Tuesday morning I got up and did my push ups.

Walked to work, and hit the gym for 40 mins on the way home. Squeezed in a few extra stairs and things later in the day, but not any major bonus activity.

Eating-wise, Tuesday was very clean. Everything on plan.

Except.....I ate too much at dinner.

It was a healthy meal. But portions count. Drat it all!

So, I'll work on that this week. Maybe I can eke out a 9 on the Ishmael Scorecard.

Ok, let's get to the good stuff.

Beautiful snow pics of the trees along Fifth Avenue.

Later in the day I got sent downtown to grab some documents related to what I hope will turn out to be a good political story about some local elected officials. While I was digging through the Board of Election archives, I realized I was in a prime shopping spot.

Right next to the legendary designer discount shop, Century 21. So awesome. And I genuinely needed a pair of rain boots to muck through all the sleet/snow.

(Warning: gratuitous shoe shots ahead.)

Here's what I ended up buying at half price ($19):

Here's a quick look inside the shoe section of Century 21:

Carrie Bradshaw flashback:

I do not know what this shoe is supposed to do -- it's some kind of sheepskin covering over a high heel. Wha???

If it were summer, and I had a reason to buy a really fancy pair of shoes, I might have bought these:

In the end, I only needed the boots. But I can *very happily* report that I was able to grab a pair of mid-calf boots off the rack and pull them right up my pudgy legs.

Yay walking!

P.S. Yes, Peridot, turboT fillets! Forgot the T, and thanks for the giggle.


  1. Those last shoes look like an MC Escher piece!

    I'm not sure abotu a 7.5...maybe an 8 or and 8.5 at least--it sounded like a great day!

    And yeah, why do portions count? It would be so much easier if they didn't...sigh.

  2. "back to judging myself" (spit a bit of water out on that, thanks!)

    Cute rain boots! That store is dangerous tho...

  3. I see a 10/10 in your future...

    Love the boots. They look happy!

    Nice pics of the snow.
