Yesterday ended up being so busy! I had a meeting in Calistoga with Echelon about the Gran Fondo (eeek!!). So excited to start training—I think I’m going to start in two weeks so right now I’m just focusing on getting really strong with a lot of core body workouts (i.e. power yoga). We are working on getting my fundraising page up this afternoon so y’all can start to make donations as you feel led. 100% of all proceeds to go further cancer research and I urge you to give whatever is on your heart.
After my meeting, I snacked on my favorite bar!
And then rushed to head out for a little dinner date at Mosaic
. We’ve always wanted to try this place, which is sort of off the beaten path in Forestville. Seriously, it’s like a hole in the wall fancy restaurant in the middle of nowhere. Awesome!
Started with their signature appetizer, the wild mushrooms:
I can’t even express how delicious this was! Wild mushrooms with these little toast points and gooey brie cheese. I only ate a little because I didn’t want to spoil my appetite, but it was faaaantastic!
I couldn’t decide on an entree and, to be honest, the appetizers were appealing to me a lot more for a change so I went with two:
Roasted beet salad:
And French onion soup:
Both were delicious. The salad had different kinds of beets with toasted hazelnuts, goat cheese and orange segments….and the onion soup was pretty traditional but had less bread and cheese than what I was used to (a good thing, actually!). My lovely date ordered these scallops and coffee encrusted steak and moaned it was one of the best dinners of his life. 😉
Drank about 1.5 glasses of a big, bold Cabernet. It was an intense wine and paired perfectly with the steak (not so much the beet salad but whatev)
All was fine but I woke up this morning at 5:45 SO HUNGRY.
As in, my stomach was eating itself and I felt shaky and almost sick! How strange is that?! I didn’t even know if I could make it during the cooking process for the oats because I thought I might get sick. Bizarre. Anyway, I DID make it and had a big bowl of egg white oats and Tazo
The usual—1/2 c oats, 1 c water + 2 egg whites, 1 banana, cinnamon, 1 T almond butter.
Answering emails/organizing my life for the next 45 minutes and then off to a 75 minute power vinyasa class followed by working at the studio for a couple hours.
See you later!
