If you are in the South you know what a beautiful weekend we had! It was fabulous being outside! I spent about four hours today planting, pruning, cleaning out my herb garden and re-planting it and adding more perriniels to our beds. I couldn't have been happier!
The rest of my weekend looked a lot like this:
Baseball . . .
Followed by some baseball . . .
And ending with some baseball . . .
With a hat and good sunscreen I even managed to get a little sun but not too much. In between the many innings I did manage to get in a great workout.
This is a ferocious 60 minute interval workout that promises to torch the calories. You do 5 to 10 minute intervals switching from the treadmill to the floor where you are lead to do ridiculously hard and torturous sprints, hills, weights, abs, legs and any other body part you can come up with! Definately not for the feint of heart. I was happy to burn 700 calories - and that was just on the jogging setting! Imagine if I had done it as a runner! Check it out! If you are not in a Blast900 area, check out the website - and you can make your own creation of intervals and weight work.
One of the best parts of today was my lunch:
Look at this plate of food! Is that amazing or what? It is also a ridiculous amount of food! My husband went to a local place here, Cafe Jonah, and brought home all of this deliciousness. However, the coolest thing about it is that on Sundays they set out a huge spread with all sorts of fresh, healthy things to choose. When you go to pay your bill, you are told to pay what you think it is worth and 20% of the proceeds will go to one of four charities. Isn't that just the best?? I love that idea! Please find your way there on a Sunday to support them!
In case you are wondering, on my plate are a tuna salad with fresh basil, a tomato mozzarella salad (my husband's favorite!), a pasta and red pepper salad, couscous with pineapple and the best fruit you could imagine!
As far as the other great meal I had this weekend - I just could not photograph it! We went to a friend's home where they cooked ribs on their Big Green Egg along with the best Macaroni and Cheese you have ever had! Cooked on the Big Green Egg it had the greatest smokey flavor . . .just delicious! I knew better than to have second helpings, although I really wanted them! I cannot even think about what was in that recipe, but know that I was so glad I had burned lots of calories earlier in the day to make up for the decadent meal . . . and did I mention the margarita I also had? I haven't had a REAL margarita in years!
What great meals did you have this weekend? Do you have a cheat meal on the weekends?
