Today has been quite fun, but I feel pretty beat after running a fast 5K and two extra miles. Itâ€™s crazy how much speedwork wears you out!
I took Anne, BFF Sarah, and TK to a Mexican restaurant called Cabo Fish Taco for lunch. Iâ€™ve been hearing about this place non-stop since I moved to Charlotte and was excited to try it out.
I ordered the Burrito Verde, which was a rice, beans, cheese, and vegetable wrap, with a side of fruit.
As well as a few of the communal chips and corn-based salsa:
After some walking and shopping, we came home and took a vote.
1) Go out or 2) Take a nap?
Everyone voted for take a nap. I went down for the count for about an hour and a half.
We woke up and I made us Green Monsters. In the mix: 1 cup rice milk, 1/2 banana, 2 cups spinach.
Anne and I both still felt pretty pooped, so we just took Ladybird (the boxer/pit mix) on a long walk around the neighbor. Then, her and the Husband went to the clinic so she could have her first acupuncture appointment, and I made everyone dinner.
One great meal:
The *stars* of the show included roasted butternut squash, corn, and broccoli, as well as roasted chili chickpeas (really simple: drain and rinse a can of chickpeas, mix in chili powder, and bake for 10 minutes).
The finished product was absolutely divine!
Weâ€™re off to get a big glass of wine! Have a great Saturday.
