The other part, I suppose, would be luck of the Eastern European Jewish 😛
I went festive for breakfast this morning:
But before breakfast, it was back to the gym! I did Tina’s 45-minute treadmill run. It had been a few weeks since the last time, and I had missed it! Stats: 1 hour and 3 minutes, 511 (yay, my birthday number :D) calories, 149 average heart rate, 180 max.
I considered eating guacamole for breakfast since I made so much of it on Sunday, but then I remembered all of the spinach I brought home from work last night! I blended about 2 cups of it with 1 small chopped apple, 1 cup plain yogurt, and lots of cinnamon, nutmeg, and cardamom.
With a sprinkle of granola and a spinach palm tree shamrock:
On the side, I had three Balsamic-Strawberry Oaties spread with about 1 tbsp homemade almond-cashew butter:
And I’m sipping/chugging my soymilky black tea as I type!
I don’t know what my schedule is going to be like this afternoon — I’m heading up to the Bronx for a lecture about working with bilingual children — so I thought it would be fun (well, fun for me, haha) to leave you with a retrospective of St. Patty’s Days past.
Ft. Lauderdale, FL, 2004 (senior year spring break!):
East Village NYC, 2005 (ship-load of Irish sailors unpictured 😉 ):
Kinsale, Ireland, 2006 (a trip with Wife to visit the restaurant/bar where we used to waitress and the boys who looked after us):
East Village NYC, 2007 (with Gina, Wife, and Kate):
Coney Island, Brooklyn, 2008 (not St. Pat’s since my nightlife vanished with the wind when I began grad school, but Irish-themed night at the Brooklyn Cyclones!):
The end! Enjoy your green day 😀
