Thursday morning I did get up to do some biking. Good thing because I met my BFF for dinner at the Cheesecake Factory. I tried out their new skinnylicious menu and got the chicken soft tacos without the avocado and crema. Very tasty. I'd order it again. Before that I had my brows and upper lip threaded...ouch. My upper lip still feels a little weird this morning. Hmmmm. After dinner we headed over to Sephora and Bath & Body Works for some retail therapy. A very nice girl's night out. When I got home, my husband was home. All in all a great day.
Friday no workout for me. Too tired in the morning and no time in the afternoon. We were meeting a friend for dinner at the Indian buffet. So tasty and I was very bad. After dinner we walked around Fry's Electronics.
This morning I got in 14 miles on the bike and did the strength training I was supposed to do yesterday. All is good :-)
A couple of loads of laundry to do today, some grocery shopping and baking some brownies for a party tomorrow.
The weekend is shaping up nicely.
Have a good one :-)
I've been good about getting my workouts in the mornings this week. Monday I did do my ST in the afternoon but Tuesday and today I did my biking in the morning. Glad to have it done early but some days it feels so hard.
On my way home from work yesterday my check engine light went on. I had gotten gas in the morning, so I stopped when I could and tightened the gas cap. That didn't help so I headed over to the nearest Toyota dealership to have them check it out. $140 for a diagnostic...fine. I was hoping they'd tell me that it just need to be reset after the gas cap was replaced....nope. Two hours and a total of $500 later my car is okay. Air flow mass air sensor needed replacing. I guess that's why it's been kind of sluggish and nearly stalled a few times recently. Glad to have it taken care of but boy that's a chunk of change.
My husband is a mechanic for Land Rover but he's at Land Rover school this week. He might have been able to fix it had he been around. Just my luck.
I may be getting together with a friend this evening for dinner at the Cheesecake Factory. It's been a while since we've been. No, I won't be getting any cheesecake...don't like it. I guess that's good since it will save me 800 calories. No morning workout tomorrow if we do meet up. The girls stay out a little late ;-)
Foot update: Hopefully the boot will be off by next Wednesday. Not sure though. It's feeling a little sore today. Might just be from the boot but I really don't know.
Kitten update: she was up in our closet last night. I was in bed reading and noticed some movement. Looked up and she was heading through the bedroom into the hall. She stopped and we looked each other over for a couple of minutes.
Happy Wednesday!! Looking forward to the weekend :-)
Friday night I baked chocolate chip cookies for my friend who is going to Israel.
Saturday morning I got up and did a nice ride on the bike in preparation for the tasty food we'd be having:
Then I got dressed and we went to Taco Bell for a snack since the food wasn't being served until 4pm but the wedding was at 1.
(chicken burrito spreme fresco style)
I have no pics of the wedding which was all in Spanish so I didn't catch all of it, but here is what I had to eat....carnitas and the table setting.
We stayed until about 6:30 and then went home to change into a little more casual clothes and head over to the restaurant for the going away party. I forgot to get a picture of the falafel I had. It was a little soggy...I was disappointed. Dinner wasn't until about 9pm.
We got home very late but I did get up to ride the bike again:
I've been having chocolate shakeology with unsweetened almond milk for the past week as breakfast. I'm going to see if it makes any difference after 30 days.
My husband went out for an 11 mile long run. By the time he got back and showered we were both ready for lunch. We headed to Southern Kitchen and I got turkey sausage, egg whites, hash browns and rye toast. I did eat all the egg whites and half of the rest. He took care of any leftovers ;-)
We stopped at Petco to pick up some kitten food.
Have a great rest of your Sunday.
My exercise this week has been a lot of biking and a little upper and lower body strength training (either seated or lying down).
No food pics...sorry. I will try to get some this weekend.
We have a wedding to go to tomorrow afternoon (husband's co-worker) and then in the evening we are going to a farewell party for a friend who is moving to Israel. I will be baking some chocolate chip cookies tomorrow morning..or maybe I should do it tonight so they are definitely done before our busy day. The cookies are for the friend going to Israel, not a wedding gift.
We have been feeding some feral cats in our neighborhood. On Saturday evening my husband had gone out front to put some food out for them. He came back in carrying a calico kitten. He decided he wanted to try to rescue her because we have noticed that the number of cats around the neighborhood has been dwindling. The neighbors?? She is still hiding from us but we hear her playing and eating. Malika has shown no malice, only curiosity. Hopefully we'll be able to coax Callie out of hiding soon. Then we can take her in for shots and have her fixed.
I guess I should take some butter and eggs out to warm up if I'm going to bake tonight.
Have a great weekend!!
Biking, biking and more biking. My butt certainly isn't liking it even with the padded shorts but I'm glad to be burning a few calories.
Friday evening we went grocery shopping because we didn't think we'd have time over the rest of the weekend.
Saturday my husband went to a Porsche model contest at Laguna Seca Raceway. Apparently there were also some real Porsches there racing. I didn't join him for two reasons: 1. I wasn't sure if I should be doing quite that much walking and 2. I had some baking to do for my niece's birthday. While he was gone I did 3 loads of laundry, the dishes and the vacuuming as well as baking.
I made oatmeal cookies:
and some white cupcakes. Today I made the frosting for them....watermelon 7 minute icing. It's amazing the the flavors you can find.
Today we met up with her for a late lunch/early dinner at TGI Friday's. I forgot to get a picture of the dragon fire salmon I had. It was sweeter than I expected and not spicy at all to me but tasty.
I will be heading to bed early tonight. I made a pact with LAREISHA that I would do my workouts in the morning this coming week...actually I really need to on Monday because I have a dentist appointment in the afternoon.
Have a great evening.
