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