Very Lazy Day

I decided to make today a total rest day.  I hat being on vacation for too long — for some reason, having 24 unscheduled hours in the day is really hard for me!  I have no motivation to work out, make fun healthy meals (enter cereal and ice cream…), or leave the house.  I wasn’t totally useless today, I got a few errands in (post office, grocery store, library, banking stuff) so I don’t feel totally guilty:)

Getting a month off between semesters is tricky for a girl who is used to fitting a billion things into the day (job, classes, studying, cooking, workout, seeing friends, club and organization meetings, writing).

I found a cool new fruit at the grocery store today: pumello!  It looks like a giant green grapefruit.

Does anyone know what I should do with it, or how to tell when its ripe?  I will try pretty much any new food or dish that is presented to me unless it involves any of the foods from my top-5 hate lists:

1.tomatoes

2.pickles

3.ham

4.american cheese

5.white chocolate

When it comes down to it, I don’t think I’m very picky at all, unless someone is trying to force a bunch of processed stuff down my throat.  I also can’t stand white bread, but that’s usually pretty avoidable.  Tomatoes, on the other hand, tend to lurk EVERYWHERE!  They are in sauces, salads, side dishes.  Everything.  And I hate them so so so much — just thought of cutting into a tomato makes me feel nauseous.  What foods do you not like?

Hopefully tomorrow afternoon I will go on a lovely, long and refreshing trail run.  Michigan has the most beautiful trails in winter, and it is so peaceful and everything looks like a postcard from Norway or something (okay, so maybe I don’t really know what Norway looks like, but I bet it’s pretty in the winter!).  That’s one of the things that annoys me about New York (which is where I actually live): there are very few trails and no big nature areas.  But I love living in the city (at least for now), and we all have to make compromises sometimes.  This is one of the trails I run on (although it’s a little snowier at the moment):

Have a good Thursday!  It’s almost the weekend for you worker bees!

Edited to Add: Just did a quick 20 minute strength workout (using my mom’s Physician’s Desk Reference Book and an unopened case of orange La Criox) and I’m feeling much better.  Exercise always does that 🙂  I also got my copy of Born to Run in the mail today.  So excited to read it!

    The trail run sounds so relaxing and pretty! You are right..there are not enough nature trails in NY. Hmm my least favorite food is an olive. I freak out if one even comes close to my salad!
