Meat eating and moderation
Last night I ate a steak. A really good steak. It was just about perfect. I’m glad I’m eating meat again. It makes me happy and provides so many more dining choices (though I still have not been eating chicken. Not sure why.)
I don’t know about you, but sitting in a steakhouse, enjoying a great meal, a glass of red wine, and good company in the midst of a blizzard is about as good as it gets.
I’m getting used to the snow. It isn’t that big of a deal. New York City is really good at cleaning up the snow and quite frankly I live in New York City. This is what I signed up for. You deal with what happens here. If you don’t like it I hear the suburbs are quite lovely.
On to more important topics…..
My cousin is getting married this weekend. I will be flying into Portland, ME tomorrow afternoon. A quick flight (I think just over an hour) It will be nice to see my family. Most everyone will be there. The only thing is….I don’t really know her fiance. I have only met the guy once and that was a brief encounter. Too bad, it would be nice to know the guy. My cousin and I are the same age and have always been close. She seems to be incredibly happy. That’s all that matters.
I need a vacation.
I would like to go to a sporting event soon.
I turn 29 next week. It has me doing some thinking. Sort of a state of the Andrew kind of reflection. Where am I?
Supposed to run the DC marathon in late March. Not exactly ready for it, but I have 2 months left. I think I’ll get there.
I started making a new meal. It is like a salad without the lettuce. Red pepper, cucumber, Portobello mushroom, chick peas, carrot, feta cheese, onion, olive oil, balsamic…….and you have a healthy, yet tasty snack.
Moderation. Trying to do everything in moderation. I need to continue to tell myself that. Last night was the perfect example. I woke up this morning and felt great (after my coffee that is), I was productive, and still had a great time.
I walked up the opposite side of the street on my way to the subway this morning. Amazing how such a small change provides such a different perspective. It kind of made me laugh.
I had some pretty good coffee this morning. Made it myself. (The trick is just a touch of soy milk. Gives a nutty taste.)
Big day tomorrow. Need a good night’s sleep. (thought I know I will not fall asleep until at least 2 am. Just how it goes for me.)
