Luck of the Irish, partly

The other part, I suppose, would be luck of the Eastern European Jewish πŸ˜›

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 ofΒ  St. Patty’s Days past.

Ft. Lauderdale, FL, 2004 (senior year spring break!):


East Village NYC, 2005 (ship-load of Irish sailors unpictured πŸ˜‰ ):


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 πŸ˜€

    I LOVE these pics! You look like you were having a blast in each and every one. I’ve never celebrated St. Patty’s day. Is that wrong? Hmm. I’ll probably eat something green to celebrate. Enjoy the day!

    Finally got around to reading yesterday’s post. Oh, I miss our Yaya St. Patty’s Days! I did go out last night though with Chris to Shades of Green!
