The other day I came home and saw my roommate writing something on a piece of paper….
Like a flash, it’s
Monday Tuesday! Hope everyone had a marvelous Monday.
This past Friday, I went to Citizen Burger Bar with some co-workers and I wanted to share their Beet salad combo that I love.
It’s served in a large bowl of blueberries, beets, goat cheese, apples, and candied walnuts over a bed of crisp spinach. Beautiful bright colors.
I actually went on a blind date to Citizen Burger a few weeks ago and ordered this salad after indulging in several appetizers. Here’s the write-up of the date in the paper.
This weekend I headed to Philadelphia for the Made in America Music Festival.
Then we walked to Fairmount Park to see the show.
After quite the trek, it was time to get our groove on!
We were exhausted after day one, so after Beyoncé finished her set, we walked home to hit the hay. (I’ll spare you a picture of my battered and bruised feet that I so kindly Snapchatted my friends.)
Dancing is my all time favorite work out. Day 2 brought event more great artists, dance moves and excitement.
I even found a healthy lunch option.
Success! Stop, eat, digest, and dart back to the dance floor. Now everyone report to the dance floor, to the dance floor…
Calvin Harris was definitely my favorite!
On the way back to the hotel Sunday night, we stopped in Chinatown to get Bubble tea.
The next morning, we packed up and walked over to The Continental for brunch. I ordered the asparagus and goat cheese omelet.
It was an exciting weekend and a long drive home, but one of my lovely friends provided me with a sugar free Red Bull, so I was good to go!
Whew, that was a long post!
How was your long weekend? Have you ever been to a music festival?
I loved everyone’s comments about running tips from yesterday’s post! After work, I went home and jumped into my workout clothes before getting too comfortable and headed to the gym with my iPod packed with new songs. Suffice it to say, going to the gym straight from work is the best because I’m ready to workout yet still have the whole evening ahead of me to relax. I ran on the treadmill and it was a killer workout. I don’t know why I’ve been avoiding that bad boy for so long. I came home, did some stretching and shoulder stands, showered, and fixed dinner.
It tasted as good as it looked too. Salsa as salad dressing is so delicious. I sent this picture to my boyfriend, Lee and he had quite the “compliment”!
Little does he know I’m on my way to becoming a master chef! 😉
Today is actually our 2 year anniversary so we are going out to dinner this evening. I squeezed a short yoga workout in this morning after diving into my bowl of oats.
Is it terrible that I’ve been measuring out less oats so that I don’t feel so guilty about the tasty brown sugar? Oops!
Question of the day: What is your favorite song of the moment to listen to while busting it in the gym?
My iPod totally got me through my treadmill workout. I’m currently loving the Red Hot Chili Peppers and random hip hop songs from the 2000s. Ja Rule anyone?
