I made sure to hydrate after laying out for about an hour and a half this morning and taking care of a few things. I knew I wanted to get in a workout of some sort so I did most of the Intro to Iron Pumping Day 1 routing plus 2 sets of 4 exercises from Self Magazine exercise cards. It was a quick 20 minutes that left my arms and abs burning!
I made lunch around 1 which ended up being a huge Kitchen Sink salad:
- 1/4c homemade corn and black bean dip
- 1/4c white beans
- roasted beets
- 1 carrot
- 3 olives
- pinch of parm
- Italian veggie vinaigrette
Mid-afternoon it was time to head over to my friends' apartment for a Memorial Day fiesta BBQ. The afternoon and evening was delightful. Good friends, good food, and great weather. There was even a toucan pinata that dispensed margaritas!
I had about 3oz of margarita in my sippy cup I brought (I drank water on my walk over) and munched on a few chips with homemade salsa.
A while later fajita chicken came off the grill and it was time to eat. This was my plate:
I only ate half the tortilla bc it ripped and no black beans. However, I had 2 more servings of the El Salvadorian cole slaw and authentic Mexican pinto beans. These seriously were the best thing I ate all day long and I'd eat more now if I could!
I had to make a quick pit stop at Whole Foods and then headed home. I munched on this snack and am watching the Real Housewives of New Jersey O:-)
How was your weekend? Did you go away? Have a staycation?
