There’s a hurricane coming?

 

New Yorker’s are a funny bunch. Sure, we are bombarded by information sources all day warning us and updating on Hurricane Sandy – internet, social media, twitter, newspapers, tv, smoke signals, carrier pigeons, etc. Yet, many of us seem oblivious to heed the perils of this upcoming Frankenstorm.

Our mayor has been telling us to stock up on essential supplies, have a “Go Bag” ready, pay attention to the emergency weather updates, and basically just stay inside safe and dry. So, what did we do today? Like many of our fellow citizens we went out for brunch! Heck yeah! With big ole’ bloody marys! Burger with the works and eggs benedict. Mini muffins too! Sipping on my spicy cocktail while peering out the window at the dreary sky and whipping winds we just sat in bliss and enjoyed our boozy brunch. It’s what we do!

Comfort Style Eats With A Gastropub Flair!

Sometimes I trek over to the outer boroughs for a Yelp event, meeting friends for drinks, or to try out a place to eat. William Hallet was such a terrific find that I had to share it here. My recent Yelp review –

Here is a rogues gallery of what one can experience on any given day when riding the rails –

Don’t skip those meals! Especially breakfast when training! Eat to attain goals!

Being busy and on the go can really put a dent into proper eating habits. With a full work schedule and multiple responsibilities there just does not seem to be enough time to cook proper healthy nutritious meals, especially breakfast, which is the most important meal of the day. Being that I normally schedule my daily training session in the morning before work there is just no time to hit the kitchen to prepare a meal. That is where supplementation comes in. My normal routine now includes an EAS protein shake, fruit, and vitamin pack as soon as I get to my desk at the office.
