I’m on vacation!
We’ve stopped at a starbucks so I can get this quick little post in about all the fun we’re going to have on Maren’s Morsels this weekend.
We ended up leaving Salinas at 12:45. I even managed to get in a workout. I was a little pressed for time. Actually I think I ran an 8 minute mile around my neighborhood because I was worried about getting home to shower.
My Quick I’m Late for Vacation Workout.
- run 1 mile
- do 10 glute leg raises with a step through into a lunge on each side
- 15 push ups
- 50 crunches
- 25 oblique crunches on each side
Call it a day, hit the showers and get your bootay on the road for vacation!
We just stopped for lunch at Red Robin in Gilroy.
Max and I LOVE Red Robin and there isn’t one in Monterey or Salinas so when we’re going through Gilroy at about lunch-time the R-R is always on our list of places to stop at.
Max ordered the Burnin’ Love burger which is a spicy burger with fried jalapeno rings, pepper jack cheese, and salsa.
After thinking I’d chosen what I was having 5 different times I ordered the California Chicken Sandwich with no mayo or cheese. It had a tasty bun, a skinless chicken breast, huge pickle spears, tomato, lettuce, bacon and guacamole.
I stayed on the more nutritious side for my sandwich because I HAD to have the garlic fries!!!
These are so good! I said ohh
shit shitakes after the first bite. Max laughed.
I managed to only eat about 800 calories and I got a serving of healthy fats! Not to shabby for lunch on the road.
All the Giveaways
This weekend is going to be out of this world over here on Maren’s Morsels. Get ready. Definitely check in on Saturday and Sunday.
I’m going to be in Tahoe and I’ve found 2 awesome bloggers to do guest posts for me while I’m internet free. Because you guys are the best readers in the whole entire blog-world, and my blog has been getting a lot more positive feed back these last few weeks, I wanted to say a big Thank YOU to everyone. Without you I wouldn’t be accomplishing everything I’ve accomplished.
- I’m feeling awesome following my new eating routine and I’ve kept it up for an entire (almost) 4 weeks.
- I’m getting to eat everything I LOVE and I’m not sacrificing my favorite foods.
- I’ve now lost at total of 15 pounds and I’m in the 150’s. This morning I stepped onto a scale that said 159.3 lbs. WOW. :mrgreen:
- I’m running like a beast, streakin’ the days away.
- I’m cooking like… like… martha stewart or something.
Here’s what’s going down.
On Saturday & Sunday a fellow blogger will host a guest post here on the blog. I have added a giveaway to each guest post (on BOTH days!!!). I haven’t been compensated by the companies or asked to host these by brands. I’m doing it because I think you all are awesome and I want you guys to reap the rewards of all your awesome comments and feedback.
I will pick the winners on Monday throughout the day. You must comment on each post to be entered for both giveaways. You can also tweet about them and like my Maren’s Morsels Facebook page to get extra entries, just leave me a comment telling me you tweeted or liked.
I hope you all have fun this weekend!!
