Pasta Party

Yesterday was supposed to be my third day doing Ripped in 30, HOWEVER, I skipped it in favor of a much needed hang session with my friend Abigail. First, we had a very filling dinner at Puglioni’s. I got linguine with veggies and pesto sauce, ate at least half the loaf of bread and still managed to walk out of the place without the help of a crane. After we left there, we headed back to Abigail’s to start planning our little getaway in July. We are going to see She & Him (!!!!!!!!) in Washington D.C. and plan to stay in the city for two nights. Abigail used to live in D.C. for a summer while she worked at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, so she knows the area much better than I do. We’re hoping to do some sightseeing and definitely hit the museum to catch up with some of her former colleagues. Pretty fun trip planned! I stayed out much later than anticipated, but got to see another great friend as well! Worth it.

After I got home, I started thinking about how important it is to savor time with people you care about. Abigail is moving in August and will be living out of the state for nearly 3-5 years, so every little bit of time with her counts. I’m definitely used to her being far away, sometimes even halfway across the world, but it still always bums me out when I realize she won’t be a few minutes away from me. Regardless, I’m very happy and very proud of her. Plus, now I have an excuse to finally visit Massachusetts.

Tonight I plan to hit the Ripped in 30 DVD hard. I may even sneak in 20 minutes on the elliptical at the gym as well. Every little bit counts!

What activity can guarantee you’ll skip your workout?

  1. I seem incapable of working out every time I go home to visit! I don’t know what it is. I stay with my Mom who has some sweet exercise equipment.. but I go home and just don’t.wanna.move.
