Sunday morning proved that I do not miss waking up with a bit of a hangover. Unlike Saturday where we were up and being productive at 8am, we could barely get cleaned up and out of the house by 10:30. Not cool.
Anyway, we made it downtown a little after 11 and met the love’s mom and her boyfriend at her condo. It was my first sunny and warm day in Seattle and it was a treat to spend some time looking out her windows at the Sound. She fixed us each a Bloody Mary (yes, week one and I went one drink over). We headed to a Tom Douglas restaurant that I haven’t been to yet, Dahlia Lounge, for brunch. Since we’ll be in SF next weekend it was an early Mother’s Day celebration.
I was too embarrassed to take a picture, but I had a scramble with happy chicken eggs, avocado, cilantro and a bit of goat cheese. It came with potatoes (I tried one and left them alone), two delicious house made sausages, and a bowl of fresh fruit (offered when I requested no biscuit). It was amazing and super filling.
We spent the afternoon at open houses and then taking care of stuff around the house / getting ready for the week.
I had a few almonds mid afternoon but our breakfasts really kept us full all day. For dinner I made a super simple meal of salmon and asparagus. Took less than ten minutes to prepare and twenty minutes to bake.
We split a third piece of fish, need to remember that it’s a two veggie minimum if I want to be full at the end of a meal.
Our typical Sunday evening in Seattle includes Trivia Night at Snooze Junction. We were both starving by the time we got there at 8:30, so I had the chop salad. It wasn’t perfect Paleo (provolone cheese and chick peas), but it had to have been better than the pizza everyone else enjoyed. And now I have to admit that we all celebrated the news of Osama Bin Laden with a drink. I had a glass of red wine — at least I skipped the beer? Anyway, that brought my total for the week to nine, two over my new limit of seven.
Goals for week two: 1) Stay within my seven drink limit, and 2) complete at least 5 of the 6 PBF workouts this week (only got in 3 this past week).
