Big Fat Mexican Dinner

Good morning! I don’t usually blog on Saturdays, but I’m procrastinating like heck I had some time on my hands and I figured, why the heck not? Friday flew by yesterday and I’m feeling like that’s going to be a theme for this weekend.

Munchkin and I slept in until almost 10 and it felt sooo good to get enough sleep. I’ve been staying up pretty late to study and the alarm always seems to ring too early in the mornings. After making Munchkin a quick breakfast, I headed out for a run. I decided to take my old running route for a change of scenery and I think I know why I had a difficult time getting into running last year. I used to run in circles around the park and it kind of sucked. I kind of felt like a hamster on a wheel, no change in scenery and I kept passing the same people who were going the opposite way. Towards the end I felt like I needed to say hello to them because we had seen each other so many times. To add to the awkwardness, I wore crop yoga pants to run in and they kept sliding off my butt, but I got through it.

Needless to say, I think I’ll be sticking to taking the scenic route from now on… and buying more leggings.

I mentioned a few weeks ago that I wanted to strengthen my core and challenged myself to plank everyday. Looks like I’m not the only one! Steph from Steph’s Bite by Bite started the #PlankProof challenge, so every Wednesday, be sure to show off your planks and tweet with hashtag #PlankProof. So far, so good for me with the planks. My endurance is increasing slowly, but surely.

I was really glad that I got my workout in earlier in the day, because I had a big, fat Greek wedding Mexican dinner. After Tommy got home from work, we had to go to the mall to switch out my cable box because it just stopped working, in the middle of the Lion King, no less. Since it took us a while to get out of there, we were starving by the time our dinnertime rolled around. We went to one of our go-to places, the kind of place where everything on the menu is good, Pop Diner.

I love their Muchos Nachos, so we started with them..and that’s probably where we should have stopped because they were super filling.

I had still ordered a Mexican Salad for my entree which was delicious, but I was stuffed! The salad consisted of lettuce, tomatoes, corn, black beans, shredded cheese, pico de gallo and grilled chicken while I topped off with a bit of guac. I loved the look of the tortilla bowl, but I didn’t even have room to try it. :(

I also decided that I need to recreate this salad combo at home on a regular basis because it was really good! I just wish I had saved more room for it!

Before I finish this post I just want to say..Go Rangers! Tommy and I actually hit up Crumbs last night to see if we could find this cupcake, but no luck, they were all sold out!

Have a great Saturday!

How long can you hold a plank for? What’s your favorite salad combo? Are you a hockey fan?

    Mmmm I am OBSESSED with crumbs and will find any excuse I can to go there!

  3. I always feel like a hamster when I run loops, too! It drives me nuts, but I did it today because I had a sketch incident during the week. Also, I will always have a soft spot in my heart (and gut) for Mexican food <3
