Hey friends! Thank you all so much for your early birthday wishes, it was definitely very sweet of you all! I feel very lucky to have “met” all of you
Today I officially turned 29. And for the first time in a long time I decided to spend my day exactly the way I wanted to spend it. I started off with a very early trip to the gym where I warmed up with some cardio then decided to play with the new boxing equipment that my gym has! I forgot to tell you all that on Thursday I had my first full fight training session in months and it felt great and was so much fun! In addition to the heavy bag we have, they added a return bag, a speed back and a slip bag. I had SO MUCH FUN testing everything out and doing round after round. I was tired after and now I’m sore but it’s so worth it! It reminded me how much I love it and how much I missed it. So this morning I decided I’d do a little bit of training on my own and I’m glad I did
After the gym I headed over to Starbucks to cash in on my free drink. You better believe I took advantage of that, ha! Here is my Venti Iced Decaf Vanilla Soy Latte. I guess it’s becoming more clear to me that I’m pretty high maintenance when it comes to food :X
So I decided to go to a Mexican restaurant for my late birthday lunch mainly because I wanted to imbibe a giant margarita. I didn’t realize it was a late lunch/early dinner (we ate at like 4?) so it turns out I was doing a little day drinking. Oops, haha! So anyway, back to the masterpiece above. That, my friends, is a Black Cherry Margarita. And that Black Cherry Margarita was DELICIOUS. I should have known better that it would be so filling and I should have ordered lunch accordingly but I wasn’t thinking clearly and ordered…
This delicious burrito! I tore through the tortilla and just ate about 3/4 of the the insides. It was called the “Healthy Burrito” and included “broccoli, cauliflower, eggplant, zucchini, portobello mushrooms and sweet peppers steamed with enchilada sauce, then overstuffed with black beans and served with a side of sour cream and guacamole.” I switched out the sweet peppers for onions and obviously skipped the sour cream. It was so good but I was SO STUFFED when I walked out of the door. And drunk. I have very low tolerance lol.
My intention was to go to Babycakes to get my birthday treat but apparently it is closed on Saturdays! What?! I recovered though and decided to pass by the Whole Earth Bakery and picked up a few treats. I picked up a slice of Pumpkin Pie (Happy First Day of Fall!), a slice of Key Lime Cheesecake, and…
Chocolate. Almond. Cheesecake. Clearly this would be the ultimate birthday dessert so when my poor belly recovered from lunch I ate about half of this bad boy. It was really rich and decadent but also really delicious!
So here I am, a little sleepy, a lot full and very happy. I had a great day and I’m so thankful to my family for making the day special I hope you all enjoyed your Saturday and the first day of fall! Tomorrow is back to the grind with another wedding, but I only have 4 more days of work until my trip to Florida! Yay!
Have a great night everyone!
