i'll be shifting things around concerning my prenatal one-on-one sessions & class times as i have accepted a 10:15am saturday TCX class at my Lifetime location!!!! i am crazy excited about it because i have been holding down the butt-crack-of-dawn shift for a while now....but it is certainly nice to see more new faces, daylight, and teach in a prime time slot. i am so ready to GROW this class and rock out with the members on saturday mornings! yall know i loooove my saturday morning workouts. so, *a-hem* for all those peeps that never quite made it to my 5:30am classes, now's your chance to give me a try ;)
the child center was hosting a Reindeer Games event for the kiddies, so after class i walked my tykes right over to the party. look who we ran into! i felt so bad for Mrs. Claus, ha. but i'm sure she has seen and experienced some crazy stuff dealing with young kiddos and all. Dego has not having it,
so this is the only thing i could come up with to make him sit still. #whatevs
i usually don't eat/drink much of anything besides coffee before teaching HIIT, so we had lunch at the Lifetime Cafe before heading out cause ya girl was hoongry. i refueled with a mediterranean egg white wrap and roasted carrots. so filling! kids get hunger attitudes just like we do (if not worse) so we all chowed down. this is why i take breakfast so important now that Chiso is in school! he can't leave the house without it.
later that evening i met up with my hubby, sis-in-love, and a few more friends and family to support my bro-in-love, Brian! he cleaned UP and won 1st place NPC Physique Open AND NPC Physique Novice. biiiig congrats to him; what a huge win for the 6 Pack USA team!
after church sunday, we finally headed to see the big tree at the Houston Galleria. Sonny doesn't fancy the word 'tradition' but this is one i'd like to keep going...forever! we actually had family pictures scheduled but the rain killed our plans....again. this is our last week and chance to take them...ugh. i have our outfits laid out and everything :( . wish us luck, ha!
"Chiso, do something cool!"
"ok, watch me whip." #boom
i can't even deal. 4? no way.
the best out of 87. enough of this. let's go eat.
for dinner, we went to a place recommended by a friend and client, Frances! True Food Kitchen did not disappoint.
their menu is comprised of the anti-inflammatory food pyramid. my body definitely appreciated that! love this concept and cannot wait to try out...the rest of the menu.
i started with their kale-aid.
(how deliciously cute is that?)
then, Sonny and i split their edamame dumplings per Frances' suggestion. they made us anticipate our entreès that much more.
do you see those perfectly cooked shrimp? *kisses finger tips* BELLISSIMO!!! the Panang Curry was THE STUFF. i usually don't do dairy-based/creamy sauces and/or soups but uuuuuh, the description sounded too good to resist. i was impressed and elated to report that i did not even bloat afterwards! awesome. Sonny requested half chicken & half shrimp with his, so i told our waiter i wanted the exact same thang.
pizza for the boys! well, just one boy. Dego was knocked out the entire time, so i fed him at home.
after we went to Pink Berry, lol. both of our phones were dead by that point, so no fro-yo pics, womp.
my bowl looked a lil' somethin' like this though! stole this pic from our maui 8th wedding anni trip.
Q: fit friends! what else is good at True Food Kitchen!? i ran into a friend of mine (owner and CEO of Inner Me Studios, Nicole Phillips) while there and she ordered quinoa pancakes which were NOT on the lunch menu... so of course i looked at her plate like 'what are thoooooose????' bwhahahaha. have you tried this place?
