freezing friday

ok so it's freezing today. maybe that's why my car wouldn't start. on sunday it was having trouble starting, and i bought it to canadian tire because i knew it was the battery. they sold me a battery but "didn't have time to install it." GREAT. now i have a fresh battery in my living room, and a car on the street that won't start. i was going to bring it in this morning but not anymore.

the good news is last night at the gym i ran for 25 minutes on the treadmill without stopping, and including warmup/cool down walks was on for about 40 minutes. then i did some weight machines, sit-ups, free weights, and then got on the elliptical for another 20 minutes. i was sore afterwards, but it felt good.

i organized two of four giant tupperware bins. i found some ipod sticker/skins which i thought i had lost and funny pictures of my family. like my dad in the 70s in a speedo, haha. and my grandma in a leather jacket posing with brian mulroney. what in the world?

this should be a good weekend. tonight is pop with brains, an event that my boyfriend puts on at the rivoli on queen st.—there are five bands (his included) and five local artists (painters, jewelry designers, fashion designers, etc., and all the proceeds get donated to the centre for addiction and mental health. it's a really fun time (always!), and some of my friends and i always eat at the rivoli (menu)beforehand.

here is today's menu:
chocolate chip banana bran muffin (1)
1/2 banana (1)
raisins (.5)

bran flakes (1)
yogurt (3)
raisins (.5)
1/2 banana (1)

lean cuisine (5)

dinner: out!

Great workout last night AND it sounds like you got loads done on top of all that! I don't know how you do it. 25 mins of running is awesome! Have fun this weekend!

I wish I had known about the event - Justin and I love doing stuff like that. But even if I had we saw Color Revolt at the Underground at the Drake on Friday. But I hope the event went off really well!
