Everybody's working for the weekend

Hi! How was your friday night? Andy and I went out for dinner and a movie with our friends Tiffany and Gary. We saw "Up in the Air" with George Clooney. I really enjoyed it!

Dinner was slightly rushed and went unphotographed. We went to a chain greek place Daphne's. Despite it being a chain, I really enjoy Daphne's! The pita bread is so soft and doughy.

Rewinding back to yesterday. I ran 2 miles in 30 minutes. I walked half and ran half. I WISH I could do 3 miles in 30 minutes. That's actually one of my goals! I get upset about my slow pace all the time.

Then I remind myself;

1. Rome wasn't built in a day
2. I had an extra 20-30 pounds on me.
3. There was a time in my life when even half a mile was a struggle!

So instead of whining and crying, I celebrate my slowness! Man, my heart rate got high. I can't believe it.

004

I ran about two hours after having breakfast with Sam at Starbucks. But the running made me STARVING! So a raw veggie plate with hummus was in order.

005

And some peanut butter/flax toast. And some leftover Potato Kale Soup

006

This morning, I sampled some cereal that Nature's Path was kind enough to send us to sample. Andy raved about this cereal so I knew I had to try it out before it was all gone.

007

I made a yogurt bowl with blueberry oikos, strawberries (from Oxnard, Ca which is a walk, skip and a jump away from our apartment!) and Nature's Path. The maple flavor in this cereal is fantastic! I loved that the cereal stayed crunchy in my yogurt. Nothing is worse than soggy cereal.

008

After my yogurt bowl, Andy and I went to the gym. Andy ran 2 miles on the treadmill and I did an easy 4 miles on the elliptical. I wish 4 miles on the treadmill was that easy!

And I burned 414 calories. NICEEEE. I immediately ate a tangerine when I got home. ("So sweet & juicy!" I hope someone gets that.)

We are going to pack for our night in Anaheim now! I'll be sure to take pictures. Hope you enjoy your weekend!

Of course I get "so sweet and juicy"!

I really liked Up in the Air too.

You're right, Rome wasn't built in a day -- I have to remind myself of that sometimes. Have a great Saturday :)

Daphne's is great. I used to get the chicken kabob lunch special all the time when I worked near one in Ventura.
I'm really looking forward to strawberry season this year. We definitely grow them great here in the VC. LOL
There is a great organic market off Central in Camarillo that just opened last year. They have the yummiest strawberries.
Hope you have a great time in Anaheim.

You are totally rocking your workouts! I am happy to see you are enjoying your F6! I can't workout without mine. Today I worked at the gym and forgot my watch so I refused to workout lol

I've tried two other Nature's Path cereals and love them. There's a strawberry/rasberry one and a pumpkin flax seed one. I like to put the pumpkin flax seed version in yogurt.

I walked/ran 2 miles in 24:30!

Man you are making me really want a heart rate monitor, ha ha. Don't worry about your speed, it took me a long time to build up to 30 minutes of straight running. I think walk/running is great too!
