Guess you friends can already figure out what was for dinner eh 😉 Thank you all for the great suggestions! You were either
- reading my subconcious mind Miss Cleo style with the votes toward Mexican or
- channeling subliminal messages to me via computer to send me there haha
Needless to say, twas a great decision! Now let’s back this up a bit bloggies, I rarely crave this type of Americanized Mexican fare (as I like to call it) — it’s a big treat — however tonight after work I decided it was one of those times and just had to be done!
I ended up staying at work later than normal and traffic was abnormally heavy on the drive home, so my plans to do some YogaSculpt got a lil’ rearranged…. when I got home all I wanted to do was sit down, relax in the quiet and catch up on some blog reading. So you know what I did? JUST THAT.
Sometimes you just gotta chill! 🙂 That is something very hard for me I must say, I am very much a type A on the go, pre-planned type a’ gal, including set workout days, etc. However in recent months with work changes, the new house, etc. I have learned to be more flexible and to understand that rearranging these things isn’t the end of the world. Does anyone else have trouble dealing with a change to their plan/schedule and just taking a moment to chill? Or are you lucky peeps “fly by the seat of your pants” types?
A year ago today I prob woulda forced myself to do everything I planned after work regardless of how late I got home, how I felt and just wore myself down to the bone. I have finally taken a moment to say to myself, is this how I would treat someone else? Then why treat myself like this? Now don’t get me wrong, I am in no means making excuses for not gettin’ my exercise on or productivity in any way — as I think that I am pretty diligent in both respects — however instead learning to listen to myself and my body and my emotional state and **BREATHE** every once in a while!
I had an awesome workout yesterday, my muscles will recover and be stronger and more ready for an intense yoga sesh tomorrow after work. I will be mentally prepared to have a great day tomorrow, bc I respected myself today and knew my limits 🙂
At least Lucy Dog got her walk in though – thanks to The Man offering to go with us!
OK self lecture over. Sorry guys.
Onto what we are all here for anyways which is the MEXICAN FIESTA!!!
We ended up going to a place right down the street called Casa Grande – there are a few in our local area and they have been around for ages and I think they are just right!
We started off with the obvious
I only had 3 – yea, I know? For some reason I have good self control when it comes to chips these days (M&Ms are another story haha). My trick is to know before I start eating how many I really need to satisfy that tortilla crunch craving – then load up the salsa on each bite to really get my fill 🙂 Call me weird… ah well
Here’s what I ordered
This dish was awesome peeps – the shrimpies had a wonderful grilled flavor and the sauce the perfect spice. I love Mexican rice too as a treat, great garlic flavor in this batch. The guac wasn’t too shabby either 😉 And I have leftovers for lunchie tmrw whoop whoop!
Here was The Man’s choice
Before I leave you friends, wanna see what happened this afternoon at work haha — “double the PB” cracker time (PB smeared on an already PB filled cracker). Who does this? Anyways, twas deelish so who cares 🙂
And I was definitely eating PB outta the jar as my boss commented on how disgusting I was…. go Steph. hahaha 🙂
Alright, gots to get my blog reader on to catch up with you homies then snuggle up to some TV. Hope everyone had a wonderful night and see ya’ll tomorrow!
