Yeah, so, I’m gloating again, but there’s a good reason: I’m enjoying my Blackhawks victory beer.
(Yes, that is my yoga mat in the background.)
Not too long ago, I said Kansas is worthless unless you do meth, and I think that still holds true because Boulevard is on the Missouri side and not the Kansas side. So. Still worthless. We good?
I wasn’t really too hip to the idea of a Belgian Abbey style tripel, but I wanted to get the most ABV for my 10 bucks, so I took a chance…and you know what? I am really enjoying this beer!
It might be the fact that I’ve drank half of it already and all 9.1% of it is making it taste better with each sip.
But really, the only thing I despise in a beer is a taste that’s overly raisiny or pruney or figgy (the exception to that is Raison d’Extra).
And this beer is not that. It is light and creamy and delicious. Spicy and a little bit lemony. Some people might say it drops the ball as far as tripels go; but I’m a fan.
And I think whenever you have Americans trying to do Belgian, you’re going to get hoppiness. That’s just how we roll. So there’s some of that on the back end too. All in all, it’s a $10 beer I’m glad I bought.
Moving on…I did the SHRED again tonight and ran 1.57 miles in 15 minutes. Not too shabby. Also, I saw a number on the scale that I haven’t seen in at least three years.
Okay, a lot of that was most likely sweat loss, but still.
It’s nice to see a little payoff. Especially when I am currently terrified to run more than two miles.
But the Shred’s working. I’m also eating right and cutting back (somewhat) on the beer intake, and for some reason my allergy medicine seems to be causing the awesome side effect of suppressing my appetite. GO, ZYRTEC!
Just kidding…a little. Really, I think I’ve lost four pounds due to stress.
I have never been busier…but I’ve never been happier at work. It’s actually pretty awesome. This is what I was visualizing me doing six months ago while I was sitting in a cubicle feeling retarded and irrelevant.
