This weekend flew by faster than most, since Saturday was spent at the SweetLife festival, in Maryland. My friend Kate and I drove up Saturday morning, and spent the day rocking out to some fantastic bands. The festival was awesome, (even though DSLR cameras weren’t allowed, and all I got were a bunch of fuzzy iphone pics…) and the food was amazing. I’ll be dreaming about that falafel for a long time…
As the weekend passed (entirely too fast) I was satisfied with all of these wonderful things:
This for my ipod:
Just in case your workout playlist is feeling a little stale, you should check out Some Nights by Fun. and Don’t Gotta Work it Out by Fitz and the Tantrums. Some nights is going to be my new summer anthem. And Fitz and the Tantrums were so much fun to watch live, they I’ve decided I want them to be my new best friend(s).
This for my breakfast:
I know, it’s nothing new, although my mixture has been slightly different. The above is soymilk, chocolate protein powder, banana, spinach, and a bit of almond butter. Lately, I’ve been making sure I get at least 20g of protein during breakfast. This seems to keep my stomach from growling at 11am.
This for my lunch:
I have always loved quinoa, but the Texas Beach Soup at The Cellar Door took quinoa to a new level.
G-love & his friend and I stopped by The Cellar Door for lunch, and even though the boys aren’ always into trying something new, they both left agreeing that we would need to go back again soon. This (vegan) soup had a perfect spicy kick to it, and was packed with vegetables. Topped with some crusty bread croutons, I’m pretty sure I could eat this soup every day. (P.S. If you go to the Cellar Door, and check-in for the first time on Foursquare, you get 25% off your bill!)
This for my inspiration:
Fail better. That’s what it’s all about, right?
This for my workout:
(That means running.)
My goal is to run at least 3 miles, at least 4 days a week. I’d like to log 15 miles per week + weight training. I feel like I’ve made progress on my running, and I don’t want to lose that! Any tips to stay motivated would be appreciated!
