Walkabout

I didn’t do a walkabout like John Locke does on the mysterious island of Lost nor did I have 30 knives in my bag, but Mom and I certainly walked all around town today and my bag contained snacks and water, along with a change of shoes and clothes.  My mom actually ended up doing more walking than me, since I had to run off and take a train to go to an appointment.

Even after we went to see Alfred Hitchcock’s The 39 Steps — a fantastic play which I recommend to everyone — we decided to walk the 2.5 miles home.  I changed my clothes in the bathroom and took off my flats to put on my walking shoes!

The photo above was taken right after we got out of the play. I love crowds and Times Square was buzzing this Friday night.

All in all, an excellent day — we had a lovely breakfast together, then walked, came back for lunch and walked some more.  Along the way, we saw some strange things, like a man on a spring shoes.  I think I’ve seen him before.  They were literally bounce shoes.  I found a video, so you could see what I saw:

Breakfast: French Toast, Turkey Bacon and Apples with Cinnamon. Cinnamon really adds to everything.  I loooove it in oatmeal.  I’m not a huge fan of bacon or French toast, but I’m always up for something new, so I figured I’d give it a go.

Lunch:  Stir Fry with Chicken. It was just broccoli, peas, cauliflower and chicken.

Snack Attack: A Bar with dried fruit and nuts.  My mom and I took a seat on Broadway and had our snacks and water.

Dinner: Whole Wheat Pasta with Chicken and Veggies.  Although, I did a macro shot on this food, it really isn’t as big as it looks.  I’m still sticking with the salad plates for all my meals, even when I’m not at home, I throw a plate in my bag (maybe it’s a little insane to do that, but I am into presentation and really like to eat my food on pretty plates!)

Because I got home so late again tonight, I only had a few bites of food and saved the rest for another day.  I know the theory of a calorie is a calorie; however, sometimes I wonder if it’s a good idea to eat at night.  A little bit of that and the fact that I am not usually hungry this late at night dissuaded me from eating too much.
