My boyfriend’s back…

I had another non-planned-exercising day today. Here is what I did:

  • Take the N train from 60th to 14th (Union Square)
  • Stop at the farmers’ market and pick up 5 pounds of apples for $2 (they weren’t very good; no wonder they were only 40 cents/pound)
  • Walk from 16th Street to work (10 blocks)
  • After work, walk 17 small blocks and 3 big ones to check out a new grocery store
  • Walk home (17 small blocks and 3 big ones)

I count all that walking as my exercise. It’s probably about 3 miles total, which is really not bad at all. Plus, I got to check out a cool new store that was recommended to me by a reader (thanks, Kendall!). It’s called A Matter Of Health and it’s on 77th Street and 1st Avenue.

I got my absolute favorite food ever at A Matter of Health: KABOCHA!

    Take care of yourself Maggie! Walking always ground myself too. 🙂 Stay warm. It’s going to be cold in NY this weekend.

    Not sure what’s going on, but you know you can always e-mail me any time! With that said, I didn’t think it was a downer post at all. You’re human and you have ups and downs. What’s important is that you realize things aren’t rosy all the time and take healthy actions to figure out how to cope, which it sounds like you’re planning to do.

    Hang in there and get lovin’ on the squash!

    been there (still there)…call if you wanna talk. pretty sure you have my digits. nyc can be veryyyyyy isolating and this weather is hard, so dont feel like you have to put on a smile for our sake. last month when i was stuck in a funk the outreach from the blogging community was amazing. i hope you feel the love, too. im here!!!

    I’m sorry things are hard right now…am only an email away if you want to chat.

    Had a look at the website for that health food store- looks good! Have you been to Westerley Market yet? Amazing place 🙂

    You know, I struggle with the “blog world” and the “real world”. I enjoy writing happy, positive things about my life, and I think it works a bit to cheer me up. I try to put together an entry of the great things that are happening.

    I keep a personal journal to talk about the darker items in my life.

    Thanks for pointing out that everyone in the blogging community isn’t exactly peppy all the time. That was brave : )

    Hey Maggie! I’m finally catching up on some blog reading after a two week hiatus, I miss blog reading so much! I’m still fighting with the internet people here, they suck and are inefficient so I’m at a cafe with wifi. Other than that Argentina is beautiful and i’m having a lot of fun trying to be a local for a while.
    I do however understand your struggles and am here to talk if you need to! I’m having some issues myself because my grandmother is insane and living with her is not helping my anxiety levels. She’s basically trying to force feed me to fatten me up, and her constant watch on my food intake and prep is of course putting me on edge. Plus she’s a little insane about everything else too. I’m keeping myslf busy though by hanging out with my cousins and traveling and i’m going to try to see every museum before I leave 🙂

    Hope you’re doing well and are feeling better since you posted this. My interneting is sporadic but I do try to respond to emails at least every other day. Take care of yourself and talk to you soon!
