Rounding Out the Weekend

I'm not sure that there is 1 thing about this weekend that I would change. It was full of friends, sun, food, and fun. What more could I ask for?!

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

    Plus last of a bag of chips, less than half a serving. With peach salsa. Yum!

    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?
