It’s a dreary rainy day here in NYC. I read something this week that said “spring” in NYC is two to three really nice days (aka Tuesday), followed by weeks of rain and then blistering heat.

I think it’s somewhat true. Although I don’t think all rainy days are bad, sometimes they are quite enjoyable. Maybe I can convince C that we need to order in and watch movies tonight. 🙂

Speaking of rain, I love this quote from Bob Marley about the rain (pretty sure just saying Bob Marley makes the day seem a little brighter):

Anyways, despite being a rest day (seriously, this taper is driving me CRAZY), three reasons why today is great:

  1. National Licorice Day!Today is National Licorice Day so it’s a great reason to eat licorice. I love licorice, it’s such a classic candy! I remember eating it with my grandma and mom growing up. 🙂 I have some Red Vines black licorice stashed for today:

    Besides, check out the ingredient differences between the two. Red Vines:


    I don’t even think I can pronounce half of those ingredients in Twizzler! Definitely the super food I’ve been reading about. (P.S. have you heard about the great Red Vines vs. Twizzlers debate? I never realized it was so heated between coasts. I think Red Vines has a more “real” flavor than Twizzlers, which duh, makes sense knowing the ingredients.)

  2.  Finishing Salt, Sugar, Fat! Yes, I’m slightly obsessed with this book. I am plowing through the fat section and just have the salt section left to read, less than 100 pages to go. I should be able to finish it today. It has been such an amazing book that has changed my perception of food. I can’t wait to finish reading it so I can share all of my thoughts with you! And I think it truly is a book that will change my life… and I love books like that.
  3. One more sleep til Boston! Which means I get to pack tonight. And when it comes to packing for the Boston Marathon, I’m an overpacker. You just don’t know what to expect, right!? The weather forecast has stayed pretty much the same throughout the week. I don’t want to say much about it because I don’t want to jinx it!


I am just finishing watching the Biggest Loser finale and I love this episode to see what everyone’s amazing transformations are. So inspiring! Especially those who are kicked off early into the show and still are able to dominate and lose the weight. And wow JEFF!!! I’m at the part where he just walked out and he looks incredible, like a different person.

P.S. I learned about this awesome new company yesterday — Pistachio Chewy Bites. They are doing a giveaway on Facebook today and they sound super tasty! Check it out. 🙂
