Hiiiiiii 😀 Hope your Monday is treating ya well so far!
Catching up on the blog world?
–I put in my two weeks at a job I love, but can no longer stay at (job hunt starts today)
Since we spent all day house hunting yesterday, the Pilot and I decided to discuss our options and our own personal deal-breakers. We have very different tastes, and want to make sure we’re both happy in our new place.
We talked over a rita… 16oz for me (which I couldn’t even finish) and a 32oz for the Pilot (which he did, indeed, dominate)
The house preferences are as follows:
The Pilot: contemporary style, pool, safe-ish area
Me: Location, re-sale value, structure/floor plan
We weren’t planning on getting a realtor, but are thinking it might be the best choice since we could use some help finding one we’re both crazy about.
We dined at Guadalajara Grill, which I frequent pretty often, but the Pilot hasn’t enjoyed it in more than 7 months 😉
Fresh salsa, made right at your table according to spiciness preferences:
We asked for HOT… and it was perfectly mouth and nose burning 😉
+ a thousand fresh tortilla chips
For my entree, I rolled with the shrimp fajitas:
+ corn tortillas, beans (cheese was scraped off) and guacamole
So lately, I’ve received quite a few questions about how I “eat so well all the time”.
I don’t. It’s about 80-90% clean, the rest is the not-necessary-but-delicious stuff 😉
Yesterday afternoon, I thought to myself, “this feels like a great treat day”, so I took a day off from the gym, enjoyed some sorbet, tortilla chips and salsa, fresh corn tortillas with my meal and a hefty margarita. It was GLORIOUS, and now I feel good to go on my Gina style of eating for the rest of the week
One treat I always have in the house is dark chocolate, which I snack on pretty much every day, and it’s never a set in stone thang. If I really want something, treat night or not, I eat it and move on. NBD (No big deal)
How do you stay on track with your eats? Can you do the moderation every day kinda thing, or do you roll with a treat night?
I’m off to seize the day and all that jazz 😉
See ya later today!
Something to do:
Spring leg workout!
I love working out legs because they show results fairly quickly. With the emergence of spring dresses and shorts, this workout is a great addition to any spring workout schedule.
Add in this workout to your usual workout split, or on a non-consecutive weights day. As always, make sure to check with a doc before making any fitness or nutrition changes.
Spring Leg Workout
Warm-up, cardio 5-7 minutes (low intensity, bringing it up to moderate)- run/walk, elliptical, bike, jump rope
Complete the following circuit, and then repeat the entire thing 1-2 more times. Use weights that are challenging, but that are appropriate for your fitness level.
1. Split squat (12-15 on each side)
2. Jump squats (pyramid style, as demonstrated in the video)
3. Calf raises (15)
4. Bench hip raise (hold a plate to make it more challenging- 15)
5. Jumping lunges (30 seconds)
6. Sumo deadlift (Can use dumbbells instead of the barbell 12-15)
