Life of Late ~ 1.29.16

Happy last Friday of the month!  Very original start, I know but here we are one month into 2016 and how’s it looking for you?  Those resolutions still on track? 😉 Well, thankfully with February 1st on Monday, there’s a chance to reboot and refocus (I’d like to spend less time on my phone and be more present!).  Here are some of my favorites so far.

Also, with Groundhog Day on Tuesday, you can really hone in  whether you have an addition 6 weeks to work on that summer bikini body.  Just kidding.  Sort of.

^^ Best.Saturday.Schedule.  Running (or working out in some form) and then popping by a Juicepress (or two), and brunch with friends.  Now I’m normally not a beet fan, but this juice has me hooked.  I think it has to do with the ginger and lemon combo, something to make it so scrumptious. (now how often do you hear that about a juice?)

The North Face ~ “North Face Ultrarunner Stephanie Howe Talks Acceptance and Healing Post Injury” ~ Reassuring to know that we all go through these times.

^^ Exploring one of the best vietnamese joints – Lucy’s – in Brooklyn with Marnie and Lindsay 🙂  You really do only have two or three choices between the banh mi and pho but oh the love they put into those dishes.  I went with the brisket pho, sub out noodles and add extra bok choy.  Mmmmm delish and oh so filling when it was starting to get chilly outside.

Look where I’ll be in 5 years!  Sure, these quizzes are just about as spot on as the horoscopes in the free AMNY subway newspaper but hey, it makes sense.

Zanita ~ “Reminders When You Are Having a Bad Day” ~ Some are cliche, but go with it.  So true.

MY NEW FAVORITE RESTAURANT.  A couple of friends and I were on our way to the Justin Bieber dance class when we happened to pass Tacombi in Flatiron.  We only had a hot second to eat dinner before dancing the night away and this couldn’t have been more perfect.  Tacos + guacamole + horchata oh my.

^^ Serious flavor packed into that meat and the atmosphere was casual and so inviting.  I asked for the meat with no tortillas (not much of a fan of corn tortillas and this whole “whole30” thing going on…ok horchata was a cheat treat) and the waitress replied “I’ll see what I can do but the kitchen runs us, not the other way around”.  I just laughed because that’s a great answer.  The kitchen was kind and did serve sans tortillas though 🙂

^^ Appreciating the view as I sprinted down the East River Path and trying my best to keep up with my friend Marnie.  She is training for the Boston Marathon and I offered to join the last 7 miles (at 8min) pace of her run.  Well, things don’t always turn out as planned and we ended up doing 8 miles at 7:40 pace.  I was cursing to myself most of the way down as it was 20F (feels like 11) and I was dressed like a marshmallow.  But, if I can run like that and dressed like a marshmallow, should be good for the next half in Phoenix, right?

^^ Eating the rainbow at the local Sweetgreen.  Whenever I bring my meals to work, I’m able to keep up with the whole30 program but eating out can be somewhat of a pain, especially when all you want is avocado toast.  Thankfully Sweetgreen has oodles of options (often on the pricier side) and some of the freshest ingredients!

^^ This is why I feel the need to get off my phone more.  I got on the subway and saw every.single.person on his or her phone.  No, people don’t normally chat on the subway but this is just a condensed example of how every other aspect of life seems to be.  GET OFF YOUR PHONES PEOPLE (yes, I was on my phone to take this…besides the point)

^^ Just me and my desire to make the perfect snow angel before hibernating during Blizzard Jonas.  Good times.
