I braved the crowds and completed my Christmas shopping! :) And I only LOOKED at this lovely display of pursesâ€¦
I did break one major spending ruleâ€¦ I gave into take-away dinner.
Look at these huge woks! I want one of those suckers. I liked watching the cooks do their thing â€“ they were dodging HUGE flames coming up from the oven.
I ordered Orange Peel Tofu. I subbed the white rice for brown rice, but I kept the tofu fried â€“ I donâ€™t know what Asian restaurants do, but they fry up the best tofu! I made a serious effort to eat all this food, but I couldnâ€™t! Majorly out-of-control portion sizes.
Mid-afternoon snacks included an orange and granola + yogurt. I wouldâ€™ve photographed it, but I think Iâ€™ve had these same snacks 15 days in a row. Donâ€™t want to bore you to death! 🙂
Part of the reason why I was trying to stuff myself is I am running a 17.0 miles tomorrow morning! Iâ€™ve decided to do this long run all by myselfâ€¦ Iâ€™ve been running all my long run with friends, but I think itâ€™s important to do at least one run solo.
Do you prefer to workout with friends or alone? I used to be a huge fan of working out alone, but now I love to exercise with buddies!
