Well, bloggies…it’s Sunday. Which means that another wonderful weekend has quickly come and gone. I hope everyone had a rockin’ end of the week! Here is a recap of mine!
Saturday was spent with the amazing people from Eight To The Eights. We had a challenge at a local high school football field, where they ran ALL the stairs, and participated in a scavenger hunt style game which led them running all over the field….again!
Check out the video!
It was awesome!
Since our normal “Jillian” was on vacation, I called up someone who I thought would be an amazing “screamer”😉
Not only did Emily and I get our scream on at the contestants, we ran some major stairs ourselves! Killer workout! Much needed though…check out dinner from the night before!
Sometimes, you just gotta have a big ole burger and fries. Ok……veggie burger, but still…fries!
(before massive consumption)
Check out my “burger”
Grilled mushrooms/onions as the base, with lettuce, tomato, pickles, and green peppers on top!
Plus…can’t forget the reason for the trip…FRENCH FRIES!!!!
Disclaimer. Should you eat like this normally or even semi-normally?!?! No. Is it going to make you gain 400 lbs overnight???? Nope. Is it necessary for Tyler to partake in such feasts once in a blue moon for him to obtain sanity?!?! Abssssssolutely.
Needless to say, we don’t mess around.
Also got to experience a FIRST this weekend! I would say that with all my Spin classes throughout the week, I probably average well over 150+ miles a week on the bike…yet this weekend was the first time I have ever been on an actual road bike!!!! Can you believe that?!?! It was SO much fun, but I was so bad at it. I need some major work on my balance! I was death gripping the handles! To make matters worse, Denise took me on the ride from Hades!!!!! We had traffic to avoid, torrential downpours, and animals crossing our paths. Looking back, I probably burned more calories over correcting my bike, then the actual 12 mile ride itself!
We got back to her house, where Sid made us one of his famous omelette’s for dinner! I officially declared it a celebration dinner. We were celebrating the fact that I had lived to tell the tale of the bike ride!
This man knows his eggs. This bad boy had mushrooms, spinach, goat cheese, peppers, and some other random goodies!
Salsa made the perfect topping!
A blurry, yet enthusiastic, thumbs up! Bravo, Sidney! You are the omelet king.
Over the weekend I made a stop into a VERY dangerous bakery….
Dangerous because of the stuff I buy in this place!!!! I am a sucker for dessert, and a big hokin’ sweet roll became this mornings breakfast -o- champs:
(complete with skim milk in my Wicked cup!)
And lunch was spent with Emily, where we met at Atlanta Bread for a delicious brunch!
Who doesn’t want a waffle for lunch?!
This bad boy was loaded with bananas, strawberries, walnuts, and chocolate chips!
And with that, I am ending a very carb/dessert filled weekend! I have went a tad bit overboard on food this weekend!!!! Times like this are necessary, though. ;-)
Let’s hear three cheers for Monday!!!!!
Hip, Hip……….. blah. It stinks. ;-)
