I worked yesterday and early this morning, so I could have a little fun this afternoon and that I did! (By the way, if you follow my regularly, pictures of my successful Ugly Sweater Christmas Party will be up tomorrow, I used my actual camera and I seemed to have misplaced it’s USB cord.)
Today’s adventures led to the Strip District. With lots of random little stores, filled with plenty of Steeler and Penguin gear along with unique grocery stores — like Mexican and Chinese grocery stores. The strip district also hosts many small diners, which I’ve actually never been in despite the fact that I have been living in Pittsburgh my entire life, all 26.5 years of it! Sometimes exploring your own city can be just as exciting as traveling somewhere new. Although, I’d still love to get back to Chicago or NYC soon. We had breakfast at a small diner, an upcoming movie was actually filmed here. I had Caramel Apple Crepes. It was amazing, sweet and packed-full of more calories than anyone should probably ever eat at one sitting.
Then it was time for some calorie-burning ice skating!! Two hours on ice skates, just 8weeks after surgery (surprisingly it really wasn’t painful at all, although I’m icing as a precaution right now. I may be sore in the morning.) According to Glamour’s Calorie Calculator, I burned 800.14 calories in two hours of moderately intense ice skating. I’ll take it!
