Sorry for the late post from yesterday but we ended up going to a late dinner with some friends and then watching The Departed (Ryan’s favorite movie!) afterwards. It ended up being a fun day after all that studying and we didn’t get to bed until late. I’ll do some backtracking though!
Yesterday after I ate lunch I went to the gym for some much needed stress release cardio. I did 25 minute on the treadmill followed by a bunch of ab work, which I am paying for right now with very very sore abs! After I worked out and got all my stuff together, I took a smoothie for my car ride home to re-fuel. In my smoothie I had 6 frozen strawberries, 1/2 of a frozen banana, 1 cup soymilk, 1 tbsp ground flax and a couple raspberries. Delicious! Dexter liked to sit on the table while I did my project…
I also had a handful of dry cereal later on since dinner was not until 9:00. This is Barbara’s Shredded Oats.
While I was working more on my project, Ryan snuck out to the store to get mint for mojitos! He made MASSIVE mojitos and I didn’t even put a dent in this. I probably only drank 1/4 of it, if that. It was way too big and I didn’t really feel like drinking all that sugar anyways.
And then, we met our friends at one of my favorite restaurants ever: Bonefish! I LOVE Bonefish and since I work at Roy’s I get a nice 50% off everytime I go. It’s definitely one of our favorite places to go and everything is always really yummy. To start, I had a glass of “Blue Moon” Pinot Noir from Oregon. I had another glass with my meal, which came later so in total, I had two glasses of wine last night. It was a little late, so we immediately ordered an appetizer for the table. We picked my favorite, the spicy tuna sashimi. Kind of like a spicy tuna roll minus the rice. I had two pieces and a piece of bread.
For my dinner, I ordered the Salmon with pan asian sauce. Sooo delicious but so large! I ate half of the piece of salmon on my plate but most of the mashed potatoes, my special indulgence. Usually I’m not a white potato fan at all. I never order then and I never really make them. But…Bonefish Grill mashed potatoes are like heaven on earth and I order them every time I go! They are so good and mashed with garlic! I also ordered a salad to start.
Ryan ordered two appetizers for his dinner: the Bang Bang Shrimp and the Saucy Shrimp in a mixture of feta, sundried tomatoes and kalamata olives. I had about three of his bang bang shrimp and one of his saucy shrimp with my meal. Bang Bang are my favorite!
No desserts for us—-we were stuffed to the gills! It was a very nice treat though and tonight we are going to my parents house for dinner so that should be fun too.
This morning we slept in until 9:30! That’s a new record for me! We were going to go out to breakfast, but to save money and since we had such a large, rich meal last night, we decided to stay in. I had a bowl of Shredded Oats with vanilla soymilk and a banana.
We are about to hit the upstairs gym for a workout! The weather is not so good here so I might spend a lot of the day working more on my project. I think we are going to Pita Pit for lunch though so I am excited about that! Enjoy the day!
