Hi guys! I missed you this weekend 🙂 I’ve been enjoying spending time with my loved ones, so I didn’t have much time to post, sorry!
I’ll give ya the recap!
Friday I didn’t end up running around the harbor. It turned out to be colder than I thought, and all I had was a tshirt and shorts so I ended up just walking around the harbor and enjoying the hour break. When I came home though, I threw on my long sleeve and shorts and went out on a 4 mile run. I felt strong, and I actually shaved off 4 minutes off my same run the past weekend. This felt so goooood! I think it was a combo of it being the start of the weekend, and me really wanting to get a good run in, and also the nice weather. There was no snow, and no crazy winds!
My mom and I got dinner at a local mexican restaurant called La Palapa. I got the chicken enchiladas. It was so dark in the restaurant though so the pics didn’t turn out at all on my phone. It was reallly good though, and the restaurant had two mariachi guys playing for the guests, and they played my mom and i our own special song. Wish I got a pic with them, they really made the atmosphere so fun there.
Saturday morning I went to yoga with mi madre and rushed back home to make it to Dim Sum. Theres a really good dim sum place in Silver Spring ( in case anyone doesn’t know what it is, it’s a chinese style of food that is eaten around brunch time and people come around with carts and you pick out what you want. it’s served in small dishes, like tapas style. So chinese tapas on wheels ) Chase had never been before, and i’d have to say dim sum is not for everyone. It’s completely different food than what you would find at a regular chinese restaurant. He was a champ though, and tried a little of everything. I’ll throw up some pictures of the massive amount of food that we got, and try to explain what they are. The thing is, i’ve only ever been to dim sum with my family, and my mom always orders the food in chinese so I dont really know official names of much. I’ll do my best to describe them ha.
I left in a food coma.
That night Chase and I went to see the movie Taken. Gah, this had me on the edge of my seat. I definitely recommend it. The main character is hard core!
Oh, I forgot to say that on Saturday before we went to dim sum my mom and I went to Great Harvest Bread Co and got a loaf of honey whole wheat and a loaf of cinnamon chip. **drooling on my computer as we speak**
This morning I woke up and did a nice 3 mile run, had a slice of honey whole wheat with some raw almond butter and then went to Bikram with my sister. I paid for her 10 day pass and she was nervous but she ended up liking it! She did soooo well 🙂 I was so happy for her, and can’t wait to do it with her while shes home.
Well for lunch I had a turkey, hummus, laughing cow, and artichoke panini on the honey whole wheat. george foreman really hooks it up with the grill marks 🙂
My mom made us chinese food for dinner tonight. We had some oyster mushrooms, asparagus, chinese greens, shrimp, and tofu. I had it with a side of white rice.
Well thanks for reading up on my weekend 🙂 I’m going to catch up on all of your lovely blogs then shred it up in a little and keep the challenge going! I personally am only doing the shred 5 times a week, so fri and sat were my days off. have a great sunday night xoxo
