B-day Celebrations Begin
Last night I had my birthday dinner with my dad, his fiance, and Chris! We went to McCormick and Schmick’s seafood restaurant and it was awesome :).
It was so sweet, my dad told the restaurant we were celebrating my birthday when he made reservations and they recognized it on their menu! Sorry some of these pics aren’t super clear- I sneakily taking pics with the camera on my phone…
For my cocktail I ordered a Sangria Lemonade, which was a mix of sangria, lemonade, and vodka- it was delicious!
I started with a field greens salad. I think I scarfed it down pretty quickly. Get in mah bellay 🙂
I loved my entree- I branched out and ordered the cashew crusted tilapia. Good choice on my part! Usually when I’m at a seafood restaurant I get salmon, tuna, or scallops but I was very happy with my decision to switch it up. The fish came with green beans and a sweet potato risotto. Oh my god it was all so so good :).
And finally, for dessert I got the peanut butter pie. Seriously, it was to die for. I ate the entire thing myself 🙂 Holy yum
This dinner was awesome! And it was a great way to kick off my birthday celebrations :). Thank you so much dad and Beth!
Leg Shaking Workout
This morning Chris and I woke up and decided to go walk by Hoover Dam and run the stairs. No, I don’t live by the real Hoover Dam, well I guess it’s real but it’s not the famous one, you know what I mean. Our Hoover is right by my house, so we went and parked my car a little farther down from where the stairs were so we could get a walk in first.
These are the stairs that we ran-
It may not look like it’s that hard to run these, but let me tell you I was dying after the first time up them. I ran them 5 times and Chris ran them 8- he’s a stud :). After the 3rd time running up them, my legs were shaking whenever I stood still. I’ve never seen them do that of their own accord before. When I finished the 5th time, my legs were shaking even harder and it felt like my lungs were going to jump out of my chest. I don’t think my legs have ever visibly shook like that before after working out- I guess that means I worked pretty hard, huh?
Once we were done, the sad part was that we realized we still had to walk about 15 minutes back to my car…oh well, it gave us time to cool down. All in all, I’d say I got in a pretty damn good workout :). That just means I can shove my face later today when Chris and I go to his mom’s house for a cookout! Yay!
Hope everyone has an awesome Sunday!
Have you ever completed a workout that was so hard it made your legs shake? If so, what did you do?
