I’m sorry I am posting so late in the day, but I have been busy. busy, busy since I got up this morning!
I woke up to the lick, lick, lick of Ms. Abbie. Someone forgot to tell her that it was Daylight Savings Time and we could sleep in an extra hour! So, so much for an extra hour of sleep :/
Once I was awake (at 6:30!) I had a pre-work out snack of a small bagel with Cashew Butter and Low Sugar Strawberry Preserves.
I had plans to meet Gina at the YMCA for Latin Cardio, but due to some miscommunication I ended up walking into the Y about thirty minutes into the class. Instead of jumping in late I burned some calories doing thirty minutes on the elliptical.
This YMCA was sooo NICE! The elliptical machines all had their own TV screens attached where you had complete control on what you watch, they even had headphones you could borrow! The 30 minutes flew by! This made me really wish I could afford a gym membership. I don’t think you could keep me away from the gym with those accommodations.
Once the Latin Cardio classes I was finally able to meet up with Gina, her friend Megan and her cousin Stephanie. We headed straight to Starbucks for a caffeine pick up.
I got the tall Awake Black tea with a pump of Pumpkin Spice. mmm… pumpkin tea! I am not a coffee drinker, but still love a pump or two of the holiday flavorings in my hot tea. 🙂
We then hit up the AMAZING First Watch for a late breakfast. I was introduced to this place through Gina’s Blog so it was fun to actually visit there with Gina in person.
Being a Sunday the place was packed! And just to show you how small of a world it is, the person who sat us at our table was a girl I actually went to High School with. I swear, you can’t go anywhere in Orlando without running into someone you know.
For my entree I ordered the Healthy Turkey Omlete.
It was an egg white omlete filled with turkey, feta, tomato and spinach. Tomato slices and a dry english muffin was served on the side.
I also ordered a side dish of the fruit salad.
The breakfast was of course delicious and I basically licked my plate clean. Gina is an amazing person and I had a great time gabbing with her and her family.
After breakfast we headed to the Mall of Millennia to shop til we drop. Unfortunately i really could not afford to shop til I dropped so I just pretended like I did. I did manage to find a couple of cute things at Forever 21 for a decent prize. I think all 4 of us ended up buying the same comfy thermal (so cute and so perfect for the upcoming season!). It was lots of fun hanging out with all of them, but I had to get back to let Abbie out.
When I made it back to my apartment it was near 4 and I was starving so I threw together a quick and easy flat bread pizza.
On the flat out wrap I had, Annie’s BBQ Sauce, 1/4 of a chicken breast, pineapple, zucchini and olives.
This definitely hit the spot.
I could not resist grabbing a beer from the fridge when I was gathering the pizza toppings.
There’s something about beer and pizza that just blend together perfectly.
Now I have to start preparing for the upcoming week. I hope everyone is enjoying the end of the weekend. 🙂
