Like much of the East Coast, we spent our weekend inside trying to stay dry. I was actually supposed to go to Charleston this weekend for a blog trip, but that was postponed due to the bad flooding there. Hope everyone is safe – and glad the hurricane decided to take a turn out to sea. A brief break in the rain and we went straight outside!
Friday I got lots of work done in the afternoon while Matt took Mazen to Jump, and we met for a family lunch at Roots – again!!
This time I got the Roots bowl with sweet potatoes and goat cheese (and more of that delicious BBQ tofu!)
Friday night ACAC had a workout class and happy hour. The workout was a short but mighty strength class and Champion Brewing had beer samples. Afterwards, I went out with a girlfriend to Lampo for kale salad, pizza and juicy red wine!
Saturday morning breakfast was pumpkin pancakes with peanut butter on top –
Followed by a visit to the gym and Roots leftovers with leftover pork and farro for lunch.
Saturday afternoon we had some friends over to play cards and then went out for an early dinner with some of them to Burton’s Grill. On our first visit we were so impressed, but this time I was a little disappointed. The fish dish I got was so basic – it really needed some jazzing up. And the green beans were totally plain. You win some, you lose some!
Saturday night I fell asleep at 9pm watching Nashville on the couch. Party central!
That was good though because we had an early soccer game on Sunday – 9am – and I had to eat and digest beforehand. Toast with banana and peanut butter is my go-to preworkout because it doesn’t slosh around and is quick to make. Plus regular coffee for a nice jolt!
I ended up playing our game (90 minutes, no subs) plus half of the next game as a guest player (45 minutes, still no subs!) 2+ hours of soccer totally wore me out!! My legs ached all afternoon.
Lunch on the couch with more Nashville. Feet up. I had a big salad topped with Burton’s leftovers plus a little quesadilla
Sunday was spent doing housework and organizing a closet. And then we made this simple healthy soup! Sweet potato, broth, leftover quinoa, bacon + bok choy.
Happy Monday to you all!
