hooray it's friday!

i love fridays, but who doesn't? people who have to work on the weekend, that's who. thankfully, i am not one of them. 

last night i did four miles on the treadmill and then went to tap. my run wasn't that great, but tap was fun. i've started doing this new super stretching routine after any cardio and it's really making me feel good. lots of leg stretches, side stretches, back stretches, some push ups, some yoga moves like the downward dog. my hamstrings are SO inflexible. i can't even touch the ground or my feet with my legs straight. i took yoga last winter and liked the flexibility it gave me but thought that the class was sort of boring. not the class itself but doing the same sun salutations over and over and over again. switch it up! anyway i really need to work on flexibility so i need to keep doing these super stretches when i work out. incorporate it into my routine, you might say. 

so i've decided to take another sewing class, i think. it starts in march and is 4 sessions.... and is "how to make a pencil skirt." doesn't that sound awesome? i think so. i should sign up fast to claim a spot, since there are probably only six spots. hmmmm. i am also taking a photoshop course in march. too busy? maybe baby. 

i got up this morning and did 60 minutes of interval inclines on the treadmill, then stretching of course. today was supposed to be a day off but i woke up early with energy and thought i might as well. today was friday weigh in and i gained a WHOPPING 0.2 pounds which is a great maintenance amount. wow — i could not spell maintenance for the life of me. i had to google it. i kept putting maintainance then maintainence... you maintain but go through maintenance AHHHH. now that i'm analyzing it they all look wrong. and i'm babbling barbara too. 

tonight i'm going to some bar on king street for one of my university roommates birthdays. not my scene but c'est la vie! should be fun anyway. and today's menu:
