Guster Show & The Most Important Person in My Life
Last weekend we were in D.C. for the rally (I already mentioned this; I also posted about one of the signs I saw). We had to go up very early Saturday morning, because Friday night was a Guster concert in the city. This must be at least the 10th time I’ve seen them, and at least the 5th time with Bobby. They played at Beacon theater and the show sold out. (Guster cruise recap here.)
Here we are (10/29/2010):
Here is the same exact picture from 3.5 years ago (!) in the same exact theater seeing Guster together. That weekend was freezing cold and I remember driving either to or from the city in a vicious storm. It was March (?) of 2007 (a little over 1 year into our relationship). Back then I was not eating enough and hardly eating any fats at all and you can tell – I think I look much better now (above). My skin is better now too (my skincare tips here).
We have been together 4 years and 11 months exactly today. For a long time we celebrated our “monthiversary” every single 3rd of the month since our anniversary is December 3rd. I don’t remember when we stopped celebrating the 3rds – now we just give each other lots of hugs and kisses all the time, and we try to have a date night once a week. It doesn’t always fall on the 3rd but that’s okay.
The Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear and Washington, D.C.
We ate well. Saturday night we ended up at a random Chinese restaurant – Sichuan Pavillion – that turned out to be one of the best Chinese restaurants we’ve been to. Definitely rivaled some of the fare in Chinatown. (My Joe’s Shanghai review here.) We got three things: shrimp fried rice, sauteed Chinese leeks and sprouts, and beef with broccoli.
I cannot resist beef with broccoli. Nor can I resist fried rice. Good thing Bobby was there to help me or else I might have eaten it all myself. Here is one of many of my plates. I like to steal all of the shrimp from the fried rice. Sorry, Bobby.
Sunday morning we had to walk around for a good 45 minutes before we found a place that was open for breakfast. D.C. is most certainly not New York. Au Bon Pain to the rescue! I got a toasted buttered whole grain bagel (I let them put the butter on because I don’t like knowing how much of it I’m eating) and a coffee with lots of cream and NuNaturals stevia droplets (I carry the dropper in my purse).
I will save the rest of my pictures for tomorrow. Sightseeing in D.C. to come.
Intuitive Eating & My New Snacks
I had a really great weekend; definitely full of intuitive eating. I ate when I was hungry, exercised intuitively (which = walking for me), and snacked on nuts. Nuts are a recent snack of choice for me. Continuing with my ever-increasing love affair with fat, I have stopped snacking on carby things (apples, bread, etc…) and made the switch to nuts (macademia, cashews, and almonds are my favorites).
