You may not be able to see what is happening in this photo, but there are three cars parked way out on a frozen lake. I swear to you, this is the first time I’ve ever seen this kind of idiotness and it was shocking. Seriously, this is just retarded, I mean how could they possibly know that it was frozen in the middle? This lake was not even entirely frozen, we saw some pieces that were just water. You won’t see this right in the city, and certainly not where I grew up either, but you will find it 70 miles deep into western MA – I never want to live there, its kind of an unsettling place.
We came across this on our way home from our friend’s farm. They had a little pre-wedding brunch in which we were asked to participate in their upcoming ceremony this summer. They’ve been together for something like 12 years, and they were those people that were always like: we’re never getting married, we’re just going to be together forever, and then suddenly out of left field they were like: oh we’re engaged, so Mazel Tov! It will for sure be the most low key wedding of all time, they told me I didn’t need to wear shoes… like at all, and they’re getting hitched in their back yard.
During the brunch, Abe and I were careful about what we ate and it’s like they knew that we were on a low carb diet and most things were totally Ok to be eating like the very tasty egg frittata. If there happened to be a crazy amount of food, we would have indulged I’m sure, but lucky for us the meal was precise in portion. The battle was later in the day when our family dinner was catered with delicious Italian foods, but we did the best we could, and made it out in one piece. I tried to just eat around the pasta, but I let myself have a little bit just for fun (it was fantastic). I even weighed myself this morning, because I apparently like to torture about myself, but it turned out positive. Self control actually did come to those parties!
Today’s workout: 4 sleepy miles on the treadmill followed by 10 minutes of weights. Holidays at the gym are the best, not having to fight for a machine is like a little slice of heaven. I can’t help but think that I wasted this holiday by doing nothing but working out, laundry, and catching up on my dvr… then again, I’m really awesome at doing nothing.
