Lazy weekend recap
I was itching to go to Whole Foods since we hadn't been there in a while. But some of the pretentious snobs are a little precious for me to deal with when Aunt Flo is in town, so we chose to go Friday an hour before closing. I didn't even know why I wanted to go and it's all the way on the other side of town. We got there and took extreme pleasure in being able to leisurely look at the bulk seed and nut section. It is usually teeming with idiots acting like they're bulking up for the apocalypse and time is of the essence. This is of course until some weird older lady comes up, talking to herself and instead of saying excuse me just walks into the Mr. We look at each other and said "apparently excuse me isn't in people's vocabulary anymore." She just went on muttering to herself and whacking her big ass bag around like no one was in the vicinity. I knew if staying out of jail was in the cards for me, I should probably move out of the section. As we passed the cheese and wine section there were a bunch of middle aged people all hootin' and hollerin' at one of the tables there. I was almost envious until I got closer and they began singing The Rolling Stones "Ruby Tuesday" and "American Pie" or something of that ilk very loud. I looked at the Mr and loudly said "I'm so cool, I get drunk at Whole Foods!" Yeah, Aunt Flo erases ANY thin filter I have. Seriously, if my Friday night in my future is ever spent getting drunk at Whole Foods, smack me...hard. More importantly, if any of your Friday nights are spent getting drunk at Whole Foods, the first step is admitting you have a problem! I ended up getting some chia pasta and a low sodium pineapple sauce which isn't too impressive on it's own but is going to be made into a different sauce to serve the greater good.
Saturday was rest day and dang did we need it after our first week of exercising 6 days a week. We went to an overhyped Italian restaurant that doesn't even deserve to be mentioned here for the first time. They made a horrible first impression, their food wasn't very good and we've come to the conclusion that high cal meals are so hard to choose anymore because I'm such a good cook. I'm not saying that to be conceited, I just mean I always walk away from a restaurant disappointed (especially new ones to us) and the Mr always says "yours is better." Cripes man, can there be more than just a few pizza and burger places that we can rely on so mama can get at least ONE break meal a week. I cook a lot, yo! So that night I broke out the "weekend burgers" I froze a few days ago and we had those and if you follow me on Pinterest, I made those no fry fries. I used 1/2 tbsp of good olive oil and 1/2 tbsp of Hawaiian sea salt and a sprinkle of black pepper. The Mr said they had the perfect amount of crisp and were perfectly seasoned. I would totally make these again if I was patient. They really don't take much longer than my microwave potato wedges; maybe 10 more minutes and a little more babysitting. You know you want some...
They tasted like what we call "fair/boardwalk" fries but not as drenched in oil. Yum.
Sunday was a pure waste of a day other than our Paul Katami's Ultimate Kettlebell workout. I was grumpy and hungry all day. I just wanted to shovel food in my face from dawn to dusk...AHHH, Xanadu just came on!!! "And now, open your eyes and see, what we have made is real, we are in Xanaduuuuuuuu"....sorry, where was I? Oh yeah, I didn't shovel food in my face but the urge was mighty. It could've been eating a 50 lb watermelon, it wouldn't have mattered. I hate that feeling.
Now we've got a whole new week laid out ahead of us. It's the Chinese New Year so it's like the 2nd clean slate for people who might've slacked on the first round of resolutions. HA! For now, I'll just make a weekly goal and that is, I'm hoping I can work my foot this week without much modification and by the time I go back to my follow up next week the doc can clear me. While I'll miss my Johnny Angel, I must admit I won't miss forking over a very reasonable $40 every appt.
Do anything fun this weekend? What are your goals for the week?
