148.8...Sharing is Caring
Thursday’s lunch was an old favorite.
Green Spot Salad Company’s Sesame Ginger Ahi Bowl. Yes, I bring my own Sriracha there because they don’t have hot sauce.
For dinner we went to Firenze to celebrate my daughter’s 11th birthday a day early. I had the Insalata Firenze (romaine, Bermuda onion, carrot, mushrooms, roma tomatoes tossed with Italian vinaigrette) to start:
My husband and I shared the Chicken Marsala:
We’ve been sharing a lot of dishes lately and it makes so much more sense! The portions at restaurants are huge. Also, I feel like I get to try more things this way too!
I took my daughter to school (my son was still sick) then went to Orange Theory with Alicia. I hadn’t been since before Christmas it was tough. I felt like I had lead in my legs the whole time. Little did I know I was actually coming down with a cold….
After my workout, I had an Rxbar for a snack.
I picked up doughnuts for my daughter’s class party and an ice cream cake for her sleepover party that evening. I also picked up Jersey Mike’s for lunch. I hate half my turkey and provolone sandwich before heading to my daughter’s class for her party.
When I got home later, I ate the other half.
We took everyone to Westroot Tavern for dinner. My daughter’s choice. My meal started with a wedge salad:
Should have split this with my husband but the server said it wasn’t that big. Lol.
We did split the En Fuego Burger (ghost chile cheese, sambal cream, roasted serrano chiles, onion rings, spicy citrus guacamole):
It was spicy and amazing. Loved it!
We came home to sing happy birthday and have ice cream cake.
I ate a nice size piece and got everyone tucked in and went to bed.
I definitely had a cold by then but it wasn’t stopping me from being super productive. For my daughter’s Hanukkah/birthday gifts, we repainted her room and got her all new bedding/accessories. The painter came that morning and it just ended up being a busy day around the house.
For lunch I had a turkey sandwich and pickle spears.
We went out with a bunch of friends to Manhattan of La Jolla to celebrate a friend’s birthday. Love this place!
I didn’t like my wedge salad though. I asked for ranch and it tasted straight out of a warm salad dressing bottle. Yuck! My entree made up for it though. I split the Chicken Piccata with my husband.
We also enjoyed some homemade chocolate birthday cake and some dancing before calling it a night.
I woke up feeling pretty crappy so I laid around all day. I had plans to be super productive but that didn’t happen.
We ordered in Ototo Sushi for lunch.
I did find some energy to go grocery shopping and make dinner. I made “Cheater” Spaghetti Bolognese as I call it and a salad.
I still felt a bit under the weather this morning. Normal breakfast:
Got the kids to school then met with my trainer at the gym. I actually felt better after the workout. I think I needed a good sweat session.
A Square Organics bar for a snack:
Today I’ve been trying to catch up from not doing anything yesterday. Lunch was a salami sandwich and a salad:
I’m about to put dinner in the slow cooker and head out for my son’s basketball game. Happy Monday!
