Our future room mate in New York, Matt looked at an awesome apartment last night. It was a three bedroom with a balcony and a parking space! It was a really nice place, but with much thought we are going to pass. The balcony would be off of Matt’s bedroom, which would have a lot of traffic, which is definitely a down side. Also, it is 15 minutes from the subway, which doesn’t sound bad, but as Matt had mentioned, it would be terrible in the winter. We ALL have to be happy with the place, nobody should settle. I had my doubts about the area and what was around to do. It was practically the first place to be seen, there is more time and many more places to look. I was so anxious and excited about it last night, but really I’m not too disappointed. I think I’m just excited because the time has come for the apartment hunting to begin. I can’t believe it’s just about August, I will be in New York so soon, I really can’t wait!
Last night’s dinner for me was some black bean soup with brown rice and a glob of guacamole. It was simple, yet delicious.
Sorry for the dirty bowl!
This morning I went up to the gym and did a 2 mile run on the treadmill, then did some chest presses and 100 crunches. I still had some time so I went on the stair master for 10 minutes and I was literally dripping with sweat after that. That thing kicks my butt!
I got up pretty early this morning so I decided to finally make a bowl of real oatmeal. I’ve been craving one for so long and I just haven’t had time to do it.
This thing was massive! I didn’t realize it was going to make so much. Of course I finished it though, I can always eat so much in the morning, that is when I am the hungriest. It was quite filling and sooo good!
- 3/4 cup oatmeal
- 1 cup almond milk
- 1/2 cup water
- 1 banana
- 1/2 cup honey crunch ‘n oats (TJ’s)
- 1 tbsp almond butter
- 1 tsp honey
It was oh so good! I am definitely making oatmeal more often! If we had opted for the apartment, Derek and I would’ve had to make a trip to New York this weekend. I’m actually quite relieved that we don’t have to go. I have a lot of stuff to get done, gotta finish the anchor for the Friday the 13th movie and I will have time to fit in my 7 or 8 mile run. I also have to go out and buy a cat carrier. Time is running out and there is so much to be done before the big move, ahhh!
