Yesterday I was... worthless. New Year's Eve was a complete and total blast, and I couldn't have imagined a better way to ring in 2011! Here's a pic of me and my roomie from the night (please ignore my frizztastic hair):
I am OBSESSED with her. She's, like, my fave.
Today I was supposed to wake up at 8 am so I could pound out 7 miles before meeting friends for brunch at Balthezar. That didn't happen. Want to know why? This is why. Oh well - glad I wasn't the only one!
So instead of waking up at 8, I woke up at 10:30, flipped out, and quickly got dressed and out the door. Brunch was heavenly, full of good friends, lots of NYE gossip (we all attended the same par-tay) and LOTS of good food. Balthezar has some of the best fries I've ever tasted, complete with mayo. I'm not a big mayo fan, but ohmemgee that stuff is GOOD. Afterwards I collapsed into a food coma heap onto my roomie's bed, and we watched Friends/dozed in and out of sleep (okay, maybe just me on the sleep bit) for the next couple of hours. Finally, I pulled myself together enough to get to the gym.
I went reallllllllly slow until the last mile when I picked up the pace. I think it really helped me get through it without wanting to die. 7 miles was surprisingly easy to do on a treadmill - I think my badass Glee mix helped. :D Also? I think the calorie calc was way off, but I'd like to think I burned that many calories, especially considering what I've been eating/drinking for the last few days...
And now it's time for bed. The Holidays are officially over, and from what I hear, January and February are the worst months to be in NYC. Nonetheless, I am EXCITED about what 2011 has to offer and hope y'all feel the same way! Gros bisous.
