Dinner in the Cityyy

I’ve thoroughly enjoyed this busy week!  I also think I found the answer to the question I sort of posed to myself in my last post.  I was curious as to why I was happier.  Well aside from the fact that I’m eating better and exercising, I think it’s becauseeee I have a 2 hour commute that I value my time more preciously.  Because I lose so much time, it makes me hustle and bustle and forces me to schedule this and that in so I can make my workout class or workout during lunch time at work because I have this, that or the other.  Sound a little silly? Of course, but I’m a silly girl, so whatevz.

So last night 5 of us Alpha Gams went out to Henrietta’s Table in Cambridge for dinner during Boston’s Restaurant week.  Anddd I’ve been doing better at my Junior Circle President role and decided to invite 2 other Alpha Gams who I knew were in Boston because I had been in correspondence with them. 😉 Slowly but surely. haha So one is from a college in Wisconsin and the other is from LA.  So yes, I got to meet some fab ladies and have great din dins.  I did well up until dessert! But I ate extra well during the day because I knew I was treating myself at dinner.

And here we are all stuffed after din dins 🙂 

Love it. But not only that, it was a great night, wonderful weather – just solid good times.  I needed that.  It helped me realize I can have fun while losing weight.  I cannn control myself and I can go out and still get up in the morning and commute to work.  It was nice remembering that I have so many sisters in the Boston area, so I certainly am not ‘alone’, like I’ve felt at times.  Kate B, we misssssed you! Feel better! Our next trip might be the melting pot, but I’ll be sure to keep errrbody posted on that one.

And today, I hit the gym hard doing some HIIT.  I hit it with HIIT. hahaaha. k yeah. The short of it, my make up just completely melted off. My face, neck and armsss were sweaty. It felt GREAT. I legit loveee sweating. 🙂

And tonight, I’m headed off to the eye doctor so he/she can adjust my Warby Parker glasses. Still BEST discovery ever! I’m a WP evangelist, what can I say?  And then after, I got a behavioral psychology mtg and then home.

This weekend… Nantucket w/ my bffffffff Laurencitaaa! I’ll be sure to post on Sunday or Monday re: our shenanzies.  I’m even thinking of bringing my sneaks and doing some brisk beach walking.  Nothing like thick sand to add a heck of a resistance training workout, right?

Until next timeeee… <3

    that folks are obligated to pay the most taxes poslbise in a given situation, even when it is legal to not do so?and…”Tax avoidance is not the same as tax evasion.”“while the average American plays by the rules and pays taxes, some of the biggest corporations avoid paying their fair share.”~John Kerry on tax havens. Yeah, and? He is here advocating changing the rules. So that they will not be able to avoid the tax at issue, which he sees as unfair. He wants the rule to reflect fairness, as he sees it. How is that the same as saying, or implying, that someone is bad for following existing rules so as to avoid taxes? It’s his job as Senator to help formulate tax policy. “He didn’t make any distinctions about yachts.”Which, of course, has nothing to do with it. If Kerry advocated higher taxes on capital gains, would he be a bad man for using the lower rates on his own taxes? Total non sequitor. “And I heard him during the ’04 campaign blathering in that obnoxious booming voice of his about ‘Benedict Arnold companies who send jobs overseas’ in part to get away from the taxes and regulations liberals like Kerry love to impose. Sure sounds like he thinks they’re obligated to stick around, absorb his punishment, and pay up.” Campaing rhetoric and hyperbole aside, it still comes down to the same thing. He is advocating for a change in the law, which is his job.”Again, as he openly stated in the link, Kerry fervently believes the government is better at spending money than the people who actually earn it, except when it’s his own money.”That’s not what he said. He was calling for targetted tax cuts to spur domestic employment. Another policy question. He was not surprized, shocked and outraged that companies which recieved tax cuts which were not targetted used them to their advantage. You don’t seem to able to understand this basic difference. The last part is just stupid. Any tax, under your theory, means the government thinks it knows how to spend the taxpayers’ money better than they do. If you think that actually means something in terms of philosophies of government and so forth, good for you. But it in no way implies that Kerry, as a private individual, is either exempt from the law or public policy, or that he has some special insight, that others lack, when it comes to spending money.”Once more, this ain’t complicated, you’re just trying to muddy the water.”Nothing to muddy. It’s a cheap shot and you know it.
