Still busy at work, with another trip to New Hampshire looming to do some video production Weds-Fri this week, so need to scramble and get desk work done before I go.
Weekend was good; Saturday was busy and Sunday was utterly lazy and enjoyable. Saturday morning I checked out the new gym with a Total Conditioning class; it was supposed to be Cardio Kickbox but they had the schedules all abbreviated for the grand opening. The instructor was crazy! Like a Saturday Night Live caricature of an aerobics instructor on speed. I seriously don’t think she took a breath the whole class…and it was a hard class. We did a push up series that lasted a good 10 minutes straight. And then did the same pretty much with biceps and shoulders. I was like, bitch, you wore out my arms in the first 10 minutes, now I can’t raise them over my head. They are still stiff and sore this morning.
Then I had to go to grocery store to pick up ingredients for dinner club. My contribution to the cheese theme was saganaki again (for those who missed the cheese on fire last month at Greek night) and mini chocolate raspberry cheesecakes. I also removed all the gross, moldy caulk from my shower stall and scrubbed out everything with bleach. Why does it get so gross? It’s not like I don’t clean; isn’t the point of the caulk so water DOESN’T get behind it to mold out?
Then it was off to dinner club where we had:
- Grilled bruschetta with goat cheese and Monterey Jack cheeses
- Veggies and cheese dip
- Reuben dip (cream cheese based dip topped with swiss)
- Fruit with fruit dip (cream cheese again)
- Alton Brown’s mac n cheese casserole
- Fancy grilled cheese sandwiches; including one with sharp cheddar and granny smiths and another with goat cheese and plum tomatoes
- Salad with balsamic, craisins, pine nuts and goat cheese
Topped off with: a chocolate fountain. Did not fit the cheese theme, but sooo good.
Sunday I slept in until 9ish, lounged in bed with Miguel, watched a couple movies and dozed on the couch, and ran to Lowe’s for caulk, but did not install. Just very very lazy. The most productive thing I did was prep some cucumber, strawberries and hard boiled eggs for lunches this week (getting back on the healthy eating kick after month and a half long post vacation binge).
Still have to cover my eyeball surgery story from last week; but I must get to work processing pictures from said photo shoot! Maybe tomorrow (which now I feel pressure to make it the best story ever, what with all the build up….)
