Saturday morning Cheri and I started out bright and early at 6:45 AM on our bikes to ride to Delhi. Think we went about 9 or 10 miles, and had about 10 minutes before the 5K started. It was a nice course, had some hills mixed in, which I like. It got pretty toasty out though, and I was dragging. My goal was to get under 30 minutes, but I didn't make it. : ( I ran it in 30 min 10 sec. Not bad I guess, since we put in the bike ride beforehand.
By the way, my breakfast that morning was a black cherry almond Clif bar. I chugged tons of water then headed to the farmer's market to get some farm fresh eggs.... but they were out!! So sad. I did pick up a couple peppers- green, banana and jalapeno.
After showering we took off for Chi-town. Lunch was Quiznos, which we both love. I especially loved my meal, had a spicy chipotle turkey Sammie, and a harvest chicken salad. The chicken salad was amazing. I could have just had a huge one of those. Lettuce, honey mustard chicken, cucumbers, tomatoes, grapes, apples, dried cranberries and pumpkin seeds, topped off with a little acai vinaigrette. I can't tell you how much I loved this salad, but I don't know if I was just starving or if it was that good.
We made it Jessie and John's house, and it was all decked out for the big party. It was such a perfect night, not too hot and not too buggy. They had quite the spread, forgot to take a picture of everything. I did take a picture of my plate, a piece of fried chicken that I peeled the skin off, chinese ramen salad and a chopped salad from Portillo's. I could have had a whole plate of each of those salads. I accompanied my meal with a Sol (Mexican beer) and lime.
I may or may not have had a couple of those Mexican beers, and a big piece of the birthday cake. Happy 30th birthday to my BFF!
The party went late into the night, and I have no idea how I stayed up so late. I did have a s'more and some pasta at about 1 in the morning. It was just calling to me.
Finally made it to bed and got a solid 4 hours of sleep before Tyler decided to get up. Today was not a stellar day for meals. I called it a "vacation" day. Breakfast was a bowl of Honey Nut Cheerios, which was the healthiest of John's cereals! : )
For lunch we went to Five Guy's for a burger. It's supposedly pretty popular. I did not know how huge the burgers were... should have gotten a little one. You get to choose what you want for toppings- I had pretty much everything but mushrooms. Hubby and I shared some fries. I wasn't really impressed, didn't think the burger was that good and the fries weren't great. Jessie and John had cajun fries which were better, but this meal just didn't sit right. I felt like crap the whole way home.
We did stop at Hy-Vee in Dubuque again and picked up some goodies. You'll see what we purchased as the week goes on.
You'd think once I got home I'd grab something super healthy. Nope. We had reheated pizza. Oh well. Back on track tomorrow!!
