Happy Saturday! It is GORGEOUS outside today here in Houston! Super sunny and actually a wee bit..chilly? Yep. Crazy. Love it.
Let's start this sunny day post with recapping yesterday's food/workouts. After an hour of spin from 5:30AM-6:30AM, I headed to work and enjoyed two pieces of Great Harvest Pumpkin Crunch, toasted and topped with Chia Charger and Wild Squirrel.
I froze this bread this past Thanksgiving and pull out a few slices from time to time. It is SO good! When toasted, it tastes and smells exactly like a freshly fried donut! I have no idea why this is, but it's amazing.
I grabbed a plain jane turkey sandwich for lunch while running a boatload of errands.
Simple, but always delicious.
Dinner was at BRC Gastropub for a sweet friend's birthday dinner.
I ordered the BRC Pub Burger and it was incredible! Definitely recommend this place. Great atmosphere, excellent food, and an extensive beer and wine list. Perfection.
Today began at the crack of dawn. My mister, my sister, and my sister's mister are riding in the MS150 today and tomorrow! 85 miles today, 65 tomorrow. No big.
I'll be picking them up in Austin, TX tomorrow afternoon at the finish! Can't wait to hug their sweaty, tired necks! Love my family and LOVE their commitment to riding for a cause. Such a great accomplishment.
And my hubs looks smokin' hot in his cycling gear, so I'm not complaining :)
After leaving the M150 drop off, I was so tired and all I could think about was a NAP, but my morning DEFINE class was calling my name!
All joking aside, DEFINE is life-changing. I take Spin class 3 times a week, BodyPump 2-3 times a week, and throw in some elliptical work if time permits, but DEFINE pushes me to the brink every time! My muscles always leave shaky and fatigued. Amazing.
Unfortunately, I can only go on the weekends because the studio is about 25 minutes from my house, but my body appreciates every class it gets!
After DEFINE, I grabbed lunch with the birthday girl from the night before at Tiny Boxwoods. We are both ob-sessed with Tiny's. There will never be a need for an alternative lunch place :)
I ordered the Tiny's Summer Salad, and like everything else on the menu, it was fantastic. Greens, chicken, blue cheese, candied pecans, and dices apples tossed in an apple cider vinaigrette.
White wine mojito for sipping! Tasty and refreshing!
Now I am home, parked on the couch, blogging, watching the Food Network, and going back and forth on whether or not I want to take a nap or just push through and go to bed early....
I'm thinking the latter...unless this episode of Triple D is lame...then it's nap time.
I hate to waste this beautiful day on sleep, but I can barely hold my eyes open! We will see what happens :)
