Another interesting thing of note on Sunday, I went to the bookstore to enjoy a latte and read some magazines/look for books. I've always had a fantasy about meeting a guy at a bookstore as we're grabbing for the same book on the shelf. Yes, I'm a romantic nerd, whatever. Well, it happened. Kind of. In the magazine section, I was loading up with running magazines, when someone grabs a Runners World over my shoulder. I turn to see my triathlon friend! Whom I actually was interested in for a while in college, coincidentally. Hah. Of course we spent the next hour talking about our races/training/etc. He's doing his first full in January and is trying to BQ. Crazy kid. And then he's doing his first full Ironman this spring. Again, he's a nut job. But it was nice to catch up with the guy. I only occasionally see him flying by on the bike trail, and I miss our gazillion of hours together trying to survive our insanely hard sociology courses in college (just kidding, I don't miss that part AT. ALL.)
Monday I got back on track with my early morning yoga and did a yoga routine that focused on the thighs and booty. Uff, whatever is jacked up in my left cheek is still hurtin'. Yeouch. I did another 60 minutes on the stationary bike of some random hill workout for 11 miles. Also, when did a bunch of hotties join my gym? Seriously it was like boy central in there. Maybe they were all there all along and I was just blinded by love, but it sure is a lot easier to get through a boring hour long bike ride with some eye candy. After my ogle fest (jk) I came home and created some shrimp enchiladas that were so. damn. good. And while they were baking, I rocked out a nice ab workout. 2 points for yoga + abs. Whoo. Go injury dedication. :)
A couple of weeks ago I got the baking bug. I looooove to bake. More importantly I looooove to eat baked goods. I found a recipe for Oreo Chocolate Chip Cookies at For Love of Cooking and knew I had to have them. Seriously check out her site for the recipe and to die for pics. Mine really don't do the cookies justice, but here they are regardless.
One stick of butter + a bunch of other delciousness? Yes please.
