We decided we didn’t need to try to be cool this week. We’re moving to the cool part of the city next month so we might as well enjoy the quiet lazy aspects of the DTC for now!
Not that Illegal Pete’s is quiet and lazy. But we can easily saunter on over there from our apartment, especially in this finally summer weather!
This is actually our second time there!! The last visit went undocumented because, well, I apparently had more exciting things going on!
It’s also kinda handy that it’s next to a fro-yo place. And a nail salon. I peeked in that salon. It looked posh!
I had a nice little salad bowl with grilled chicken, black beans, guac, and that green salsa is awesome!!! It’s green salsa with cilantro in it! Way better than I expected! I don’t know if we’re ever going back to Qdoba because it’s cheaper too!! Basically for the same price we can also get chips & guac along with our meals.
The perfect chip.
I like it salty… in fact I even sent Kevin in search of the salt!
Kevin stealing the salt.
Any restaurant where I can have a big shaker of salt at my table to go with my chips & guac is a winner in my book. I love salt on my avocado… I blame this on Yoalba! I always miss the fresh DR avocados that we could just sit there, salt, and eat. Yum!
Hehe.. isn’t this funny? They had it by their pop fountain. By the way, Illegal Pete’s beat out ModMarket tonight when I told Kevin MM probably didn’t have Diet Coke. Lol.
This is what we woke up to! Crazy, right?
Hail piles!!!! Apparently there was a crazy storm last night. We kinda missed it. We heard the noise, but it was pretty dark by the time it started in our neighborhood.
Today was a double salad day. For lunch we had salad with tomatoes, fresh mozz, black beans, and cilantro.
Today’s WOD: was from a new source — GPP Fitness which I learned about from his guest blog on Meals & Moves. He trains the Utah Jazz dancers… so there’s no denying the effectiveness of his workouts, right?
2 rounds for time:
Somehow I missed that there was 2 rounds, and only did 1! I only realized that it was supposed to be 2 round when I was giving Kevin a little show & tell. Anyhow, it took me 18:45 to complete 1 round. Now I feel like I owe one, so maybe I’ll do it tomorrow!!!
Check out these snaking push-ups:
What do you think? I’ve never seen anyone doing those before. But I can do them!! And I can’t do normal pushups. So I was excited. Although 25 was definitely tough!!
Anyways, it was a great workout and I’m excited to try more from the GPP Fitness website in the future.
Do you love salt? I really, really do. I’d choose salt over sugar any day. But avocado is one of my most important things to salt. I guess potatoes are a close second! In my parents’ defense, they brought us up to believe that garlic was the other thing in the shaker. We always had garlic & pepper on our mashed potatoes. I still love garlic though!!!
What did you think of the snaking pushups? Have you ever done any like that? It had been a really long time since I had done a traditional situp too since trainers these days are always hating on them. But it felt good!
Do you like (non-destructive) storms? I usually don’t notice them too much. Last night was no exception – haha.
