Well I hope all of you lovies had a great weekend and enjoyed the time spent with your mommas. I didn’t get a pic with my mom this weekend bc my camera battery died, but I have a pic of the two of us for your viewing pleasure 🙂
Friday night I had so much fun with my friends!! It was actually warm at night and was the perfect temp. I was able to snag a few pics from my roomie to share with you guys!
Sat morning I woke up and had a bowl of wheaties and a little bit of pumpkin granola topped with strawberries. The berries were so fresh and sweet.
For lunch my mom and I went out to eat at a new chinese restaurant in Silver Spring, MD called Noodle King. It’s a small place but the food was DIVINE. We were supposed to go to dim sum with my dad but he had an awful migrane and dim sum would have been way too much food for just the two of us. My mom had heard some great stuff about this restaurant so we gave it a go. we got lots of food and brought the rest back for my dad and extra leftovers 🙂 We got wonton soup, fat noodles with beef, a beef dish with steamed broccoli that was recommded by the owner, some chinese sauteed greens, and a chinese style calamari. Everything was so delicious.
After lunch we did a little shopping and ended up renting the boy in the striped pajamas. Such a sad movie 😦 It is really eye opening though, but left me with such a sad feeling when it was over.
Sunday my mom wanted to make some Chinese food and I couldn’t have agreed more 🙂 She made some ketchup/sweet sour shrimp, had some spicy tofu and bean sprouts, braised beef and radish, some sauteed oyster mushrooms, and a mini spring roll that my next door neighbor had brought over for us. Of course I had a side of rice to go along with it. YUM-O.
Sunday we couldn’t have had better weather. I went out for a nice 3 miler and enjoyed the breeze throughout the whole run. Last week I ran 3 times! I’m trying to get back into a routine because once the 10k was over I didn’t run as much. I also did the 30 day shred and didn’t miss a day over the weekend! That was SO great because thats always when I would fall before. Feels great, update in the shred tab 🙂
When I was home I was able to get a lot of grocery shopping done so now I have fooooooddd!! This morning I had some yogurt, kashi h2h, blackberries, chia seeds, and a little bit of almond butter. i LOVEEDD this combo, I can’t believe it took me so long to try the almond butter with the yogurt mess. I’m so happy Chase’s mom had it at her house, now i’m hooked. And i’m also loving the TJs raw creamy almond butter, for 4.99 i’ll take it anyday over my other brand I was buying. So much cheaper and tastes exactly the same!
Lunch was soo yum. At the chinese grocery store this weekend I picked up a ginger dressing. This had a delicious tang to it. I had a side salad to start off my meal. I got a lot of lettuce so i’m going to be incorporating lots of salad starters to my meals. I then made a wrap. FINALLY got some more sabra this weekend, so I smeared the hummus on, with a wedge of laughing cow, grilled up some eggplant on the foreman, threw on some roasted red peppers, and some spinach. The big addition here was that before I put the wrap on the foreman I sprayed it lightly with olive oil. This was perfection! The wrap crisped up perfectly and made it even better. This wrap is one of my absolute favsss.
So the cutie Kate tagged me in a prom pic post. I had to wait until I went home this past weekend to get them from my parents house. Unfortunately, I didn’t have much. They were taken on my very first digital camera, which right now I have NO idea where that is. My mom had one pic framed so I grabbed that and scanned it. My school for some reason only had a senior prom, so this is my dress 🙂 I also scrounged up my senior yearbook and found two pics from prom in there. One was me and my friend stacey when I won prom princess, and the other is me dancing with my friend dean who won prom prince. The scans didn’t turn out too hot, but its the best I could do. Sorry I don’t have more, but I hope you enjoy!
Thanks for reading this MONSTER post 🙂 Have a great monday!
