Torchy's Tacos + surprise!

 aaaaaahh...  sunday.  Dego woke up at 4am to nurse as usual and i didn't get back to sleep until around 6. before i knew it,  it was time to get on up for church!


ready for my 2nd date of the weekend and unbeknownst to me, we headed to Torchy's Tacos on our side of town. that line was serious!  it was our first time there, and i'm sure Sonny remembered me saying we needed to check them out a few weeks ago. i kinda wanted brunch brunch, but rolled with it.


little did i know there was a pretty lil' lunch guest already there and waiting on us to arrive- my dear friend Ericka!!   talk about a pleasant surprise- i was so happy to finally see and talk to her in person again and not via computer or phone as she lives in another city.  we spent the afternoon eating and laughing, and if she were staying longer we would have hit the gym together too i'm sure!   i'm so honored to know her and excited about where God is taking her foster care program Think Love Smart, as well as all her other endeavors!

Ericka had been to Torchy's once before and said the Democrat w/ chicken was great, so i took her word for it.


she was absolutely right.  shredded fajita chicken, topped with fresh avocado, queso fresco, cilantro, onions, and a wedge of lime on corn tortillas.


Sonny got something yummy looking with eggs, beef,  and cheese on flour tortillas,


and i split the Mr. Orange with him as well.  salmon (duh), queso fresco, avocado, sweet corn, and black beans on corn tortillas. my fave of the bunch!  YUM.


then we went to relax, hang out, and catch up.  our kiddos love them some Ericka too! wrong boob though, Dego. so funny.


after E hit the road, so did i! i did some GGG (gym, grocery shopping, & grazing (grazing in the bulk aisle of course).  i did almost 1 hour of treadmill intervals... ya, more intervals, i know, i know.  booooring. i expect to get cleared to workout THIS week and i'm crazy excited about it!  i need workout variety in my life right now.


 made a few meals for Sonny and i for the next two days or so and shut the kitchen down. lean protein, veggies, good fat, and complex carbs on the side.  if you're interested in a customized meal AND workout plan (because you can't be efficient without both), email me! i will be starting my 6 Pack plan as soon as my OB gives me the green light.

IMG_20140720_231716 oh wait and then there's this guy.  i can feel my cool whip addiction creeping back up on me from these crazy postpartum sweets cravings.  this is still a lighter alternative than say full fat ice cream or a restaurant dessert though.  sugar-free cool whip and low-fat honey graham crackers.  place it in the freezer so the cool whip can harden first.  all things in moderation!

Q: moms, are your preggo cravings different from your postpartum cravings?
