Now, to my weekend. I went to visit my new boo, (I have a boyfriend now!) at his Military Base in Louisiana. I made the three hour trek with my pooch, and it went without a hitch.  I got there and we hung out, watched football, went to eat with his friends, and watch a movie. The next day, we went to the gym and GOT. IT. IN. Did I mention he and his friend are training for a fitness competition? I had an amazing workout with his guidance and his friend and wife. It was almost like a double gym date of sorts lol. We did barbell exercises, leg lift machine exercises, dumbbell exercises, and resistance bands. Then we went and did 30 minutes of cardio. I was HUNGRY! I tore into one of my pre prepped meals when I got back into the house. After that, he gave me a mini tour of the post, and took a test for class. we spent the rest of the time watching some football (I love Football!). I had such a great time I didn’t want to leave. 😦

Thursday WOD

This Thursday my workout consisted of:

  • 15 min run for a warm up
  • 30 second plank
  • 2 min jump rope
  • 10 hills
  • 4 min jump rope
  • 20 hills
  • 3 rounds of 30 second planks
  • 5 rounds of 6 reverse pull ups with a body band

Whew! what a workout! I should have snapped some pictures, but sometimes when you’re in the zone you are only concerned about surviving the workout and water lol!

Yesterday was my little brothers 27th birthday and my mom went all out and cooked a ultra southern meal. Fried cabbage, fried pork chops, homemade macaroni and cheese, red beans and rice, fried chicken, green beans, baked chicken, and chocolate cake. Oh and Kool-Aid. My mom did her thang! I of course could not say no to such a delight, and ate like it was going out of style. LOL. Let the bloat come on! It was worth it! Thanks Mom!

I have some choices to make a big part of me wants to lay low and relax and chill out, but family comes 1st so you might catch me on the road to the country! Hope everyone is having a fabulous Friday!

Mini Vacay

Where do I begin!!!

I went to Dallas for a few days to get away before school begins. It was my last little hurrah before I really tie myself down and dedicate my time to my studies. I started out around 9am packed my bags, and Gizmo’s stuff, filled up my tank and I was off! I arrived in Dallas around 1. Got Gizmo settled and caught up with my homegirl I was staying with. She was taking a little girls hair down and I helped. Why not. It was cool. Then we went out to a lounge called Winston’s. It was a nice little spot. It was difficult to find!!

After that we went to fuel city tacos and that was… Interesting. Lol. Well the way people dressed/acted.

The next day I woke up early for a ten minute run, and a 20 minute walk with gizmo and my friends dog Peanut.20130819-193537.jpg

I guess I had one taco too many? Lol. After that I met up with a friend who used to live in Houston at Max’s Wine dive. Delicious as usual. I highly recommend the wings and the cinnamon rolls are amazing. I didn’t even know they had those!

After that I took a huge nap and went to Al Biernats with my good friend, Brandi,  that also lived in Dallas for Dallas Restaurant Week. I had an arugula salad, steak and potatoes with green beans and key lime pie for dessert! Yum! 20130819-193604.jpg20130819-193557.jpg

After that we went to this Chocolate bar and the chocolate was amazing. They had a live band and tables set up to play cards, dominoes, chess ect. It would be perfect for a first date. After that we went to Sunset lounge where I met my friends Alumni friends and went home after that.20130819-193611.jpg

Sunday, I walked the dogs watched TD Jake’s with my friends parents and went to brunch with friends(Nakia and Brandi) . The food was delish. We ate at The Greenroom Cafe. It was wonderful. After that I relaxed went to Petsmart for Gizmo and went to Maggianos for dinner. The food was superb!

Overall, I had an awesome trip and I look forward to going back. The weather was far less humid and I got an opportunity to roll my windows down! Hope everyone had an eventful weekend!
