Balls, Pizza and Chocolate Covered Strawberries. Talk About a Friday Night Done Right!

Last night Al and I hit up the driving range at Legend’s, where we once again scored a 2 for 1 deal on small buckets. Our former teammate works there during the summer while finishing up college so she always pulls through and gives us a deal. A small bucket for $2.75 a person. That’s a deal I cannot pass up!

After hitting balls for a bit, we headed back to my house where my parents were waiting with pizzas and salad. My parents haven’t seen Al since March, when I came home from Los Angeles, and she’s watching the pup while we take a long weekend to NYC next Thursday, so she was getting instructions and all that jazz.

I stole a few bites of pizza, but I wasn’t hungry at all, as I had feasted on Special K Crackers smothered in peanut butter beforehand. Remember that hunger dilemma I faced yesterday at work? Problem solved. 🙂

We had pineapple and pepperoni pizza for Al.

And the “Loaded” pizza for my parents.

I could only stomach half of my salad, which went undocumented since it was so boring, but I did snag a small, 4 bite-sized piece of the pineapple pizza. It was worth every bite. 🙂

Since my parents wouldn’t let Al bring anything, she decided to surprise them with chocolate covered strawberries, which were the perfect treat on a sticky Friday night.

I have a love hate relationship with chocolate covered strawberries. I love chocolate and I love strawberries, but whenever I bite into one, the chocolate crumbles off, and then I’m just left with a pile of chocolate and a strawberry. Anyone else have the same feelings?

This morning I went for a fairly decent 4.1 mile run. It started off worrisome (I think that tiny piece of pizza all of that peanut butter weighed me down), but soon enough I was able to find my groove.

I’m off to run some errands on this sunny Saturday afternoon before the storm hits later this evening. I have every intention of having a lazy Saturday night. Wanderlust is on my list of movies to see so I might just have to grab it from a Red Box.

Anyone seen Wanderlust? How’d you enjoy it?

Stomach Ache but Hungry. What’s a Girl to Do?!

My shake held me over until about 11 before I attacked my juicy Fuji apple. Halfway through I considered pulling out an almond butter packet I have in my purse but opted against it. Yes, I am VERY crazy.

About an hour later I snacked on Yoplait’s Greek yogurt that Chelsey introduced me to last weekend. She gave me a black cherry to try which I absolutely loved, but the vanilla flavor was too soupy for a greek yogurt and just didn’t do it for me. I stirred in a little of my chocolate peanut butter protein powder, but it was still just ehh.

For 2 Weight Watcher’s points, I’d much rather have my Fage 2% plain Greek yogurt. Now that shit is the bees knees.

About an hour later I hit the gym where I enjoyed a cardio focused workout. The other day I asked a trainer at the gym if I was allowed to spin when classes weren’t schedule and he gave me the green light which I’m excited about. It’s so hard to find a spinning class that I like and can fit into my schedule so it’s nice to know that I can get in some type of spinning in if I’m unable to make a class. I realize I won’t spin for as long or as hard but it’s better than nothing!

Afternoon Workout

  • 1.7 mile run
  • 10 minutes spinning
  • 5 minutes rowing
  • Stretching

I actually kicked major ass during my 10 minute spinning sesh. I worked myself hard and told myself that my lunch time workouts are so precious since I’m limited on time that if I was going to spin, then I was TRULY going to spin the real way. I did bursts in and out of position 2 and 3, had heavy resistance a majority of the time and got great intervals in. Overall I’m very pleased with my workout.

After the gym I was pretty hungry so I snacked on a Kashi Honey Almond Flax bar that I snagged last weekend from Ryan and Chelsey’s pantry, and also noshed on a bag full of sugar snap peas and home-grown cherry tomatoes.

I LOVE Kashi’s bars, some of my favorites being the Trail Mix and the Peanut Butter bars. They’re so good and a lot healthier than other versions of trail mix bars you’ll find on the shelves these days.

This was supposed to be a light snack to get a little protein in me before I had my 2nd protein shake of the day but honestly, my stomach has been hurting me for a good chunk of the day. My stomach says no, but my head says yes. And when I say head, I mean I get light headed when I’m hungry. What’s a girl to do. I think it’s the shake that’s turning my stomach. So it’s either finish the remaining half of my shake and make my stomach feel worse, or deal with light-headedness. I think I can manage another 20 minutes before heading home for the weekend.

In fun news, I’m going back to the driving range with my bestie, Allie, yes we have the same name, and then she’s coming over for dinner. I’m so excited to spend time with her again. She works 2 jobs, so in between our schedules, meetings and everything else under the sun, it can be quite hard to find a night that works for both of us.

Hope you all have a great rest of your Friday! Happy almost weekend!

Hitting Balls Solves Everything

The afternoon was about 10 times better than the first half of my day. There’s no surprise that a quick workout and spending time at the driving range with my best friend instantly flipped my mood.

A grasshopper protein shake (pistachio and mint chocolate), courtesy of Herbalife, put a pretty ginormous smile on my face.

Grasshopper Shake = Big Smiles

I followed it up with my veggies. Mom would be proud.

After a quick afternoon at work, I hit the gym quickly for a brief workout before meeting up with my best friend, Allie, at the driving range.

Evening Workout

  • 1 mile run
  • 6 minutes rowing, level 4.5 – I was going to only do 5 minutes, but this lady wouldn’t STOP staring me down every 30 seconds so I kept going just to annoy her.. mature I know
  • 2 sets of 25 medicine ball sit-ups
  • 20 side-to-side medicine ball sit-ups
  • Stretching

I quickly made it to the driving range where we saw our former high school teammate, Ashley, and scored 2 for 1 buckets! Pays having connections. 😉

Going Deep

Gotta love the pink club Ashley lent me!

Tiger Who?!

Golfing was extremely fun and I would love to get to the ranges a lot more before they close for the season. After hitting balls, I whipped up chocolate peanut butter yogurt in my favorite glass.

Fage 2% plain greek yogurt + chocolate peanut butter protein= Yum!

Favorite Yogurt in my Favorite Glass

Tim, an ex of mine from when I lived in Los Angeles, gave me a set of 4 of these glasses when he was packing up his house. The story behind the glass is unique. Tony’s On the Pier is a bar in Manhattan Beach and when you order a fire shot, it’s served in this glass, which you get to keep. Tim did a lot of shots in his days!

Alright, off to pack. This girl decided to follow through with her PA plans!
