5 Alarm Diet Help from the Universe

Monday, July 29, 2013

We were in NYC for the weekend and had a great time. I walked 35,000 steps on Sat including an hour walk in Central Park and a great morning at Brooklyn Bridge Park (i couldn't get my husband to do the FREE kayaking- the East River was a little choppy).

We had lunch at an Israeli Hummus and Falafel shop. Different and yummy.

We went to "Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike" - a really funny play with David Hyde Pierce and Sigourney Weaver. After, we ended up at a bar with a Irish bartender who loves the same cars my husband does (VWs and Porsches). I offended him by asking about baby Prince George. Oops.

Sunday my husband wanted to go to The Brooklyn Diner. It was a little pricey and huge portions-- only choice was 3 eggs- not 2. I finally decided on the French Toast which came with whipped cream AND syrup. As I drank my 3rd water of the day and some coffee, wondering how to put this in the tracker, the restaurant caught on fire. I'm not kidding. It was just an electrical fire in the kitchen and they were open again 2 hours later but we had to leave. We got FREE coffee (score!) and went to a different diner where I had a sensible 2 scrambled eggs and wheat toast.

So far, I've been in the following when they caught fire: house, dorm, theater, hotel, plane, and now 2 restaurants. But it's not me-- I promise. emoticon I just figure the universe did not want me to be tempted by that breakfast.

    you made NYC, sound interesting to me. That is someplace my teen grand daughter has been wanting to go and I wondered why, a bunch of tall buildings and central park , places to eat and walking everywhere you go.

Now walking is easier for me, I'm full of life and anticipation of wanting to do more. If the opportunity and cash improves some day maybe it will happen. Until, then I can enjoy the trips thru others words and pictures.

Hugs
Linda

    Well, that's one way to limit your portions! I presume the Irishman was from southern Ireland? Your stay in NY sounds so interesting I'm jealous!

    LOVE this story. As MLH148's sister I can attest -- it's all true and it's NOT HER FAULT. And the house fire was on CHRISTMAS EVE when she was a teen. She jumped from the roof. MLH148 is one brave, strong woman!

I am SO jealous that you got to see "Vania and Sonia and..."

What a great trip!

You definitely have the spark!

    At first my reply was going to be about NYC and the food choices because I've never been. However, I am now preoccupied by the notion that places you've been have since caught fire! HOW SCARY! I have this crazy fear that my house will catch fire someday. I dream about it and worry when I'm not here that one day it will be a pile of ash. While I love meeting fellow Sparkers, I'm afraid if I ever have the opportunity to meet you I would prefer it to be anywhere but in my home. No offence.

I think the last fire did you a favor... free coffee and a 2-egg omelet. What more could a girl ask for?
