Fancy Lunch, Reading, “Racing” & Trying Something New
Happy weekend ladies and gents! I figured I’d try and balance my pregnancy post with normal ones, so I’m doing every other one preg related. This one has a few related things, but is mostly not baby related 🙂
Del Frisco’s Grille= delicious. I’ve been helping out with the Marketing/Business Analysts at our company and this week they won a global award within the company that was a pretty big deal. One of the higher-ups took them out to celebrate and invited me to go along. You don’t have to ask me twice! Actually they did, though. I didn’t want to crash their party, they did all the work for this award. Anyways…. we went to Del Frisco’s Grille. An upscale steakhouse.
While this wasn’t my actual plate, this is what we ordered and I ate, minus the ahi tuna tacos- no raw fish for preggo. Truffle deviled eggs and cheese steak egg rolls. Seriously, so good. I got the Steakhouse Salad: Broiled Prime Sliced Steak, Deviled Egg, Spring Mix, Avocado, Bacon, Parmesan, Lemon-Horseradish Dressing (on the side). The steak was cooked perfect and was delicious. We each had a few bites of truffle mac n cheese- seriously the best mac n cheese I’ve ever had, sorry mom.
And for dessert we split nutella bread pudding with coffee ice cream. Again a major win.
You know that marketing/business analysts help I was doing? It provided a great read while walking on the treadmill…
And guess what?! After months of only being allowed to walk I was cleared to run once my 2nd trimester started. Woo hoo! I did a few 2 mile runs and then participated in Nuun‘s virtual #RunRideHydrate race and did a 5k on the treadmill.
The race was to raise money for Girls on the Run and we got a shirt, bib and medal! Nuun is seriously such a great company! My pace was about a minute per mile slower than my usual pace, but I’m A-Okay with that. As long as I’m able to run, I’m happy!
A guy at work brought in lychees from his friends tree and I tried a few. They were juicy, yummy and have a very light taste. I’m always down to try something new.
One thing that I regret from this weekend was missing out on 7/11 and not getting my free slurpee. In years past I’ve hit up multiple locations, but yesterday I was just too busy. Looks like I have to wait another year for my freebie.
One thing I DON’T regret is hanging with my fam Sunday afternoon/evening. Roasted chicken, succotash and broccoli for dinner.
And cake that my sisters boyfriends mom made for dessert. Although, I only had a few bites of the cake. I’m really trying to rein in my “bad eating.” I’ve been treating myself a little too much lately.
