Well…..this week really got away from me fast. I had something scheduled after work just about every single day. Combine that with really busy work days and I was drained by Wednesday. To combat that this week, I am going in with a plan. I will be more protective about “my time.” And, I’m going to share a lot of tips on my facebook page so feel free to give that a like and follow along.
Monday – Abs and Glutes strength circuit
Tuesday – 25 minute run
Friday – 35 minute cycling
Sunday – EQT 10 miler
If I’m going to get back on track with my sub 50 10k, I need to get some solid workouts in this week. We shall see how it all shakes out!
Eat All The Foods
I could easily have turned my blog in to a food blog this week though! So let’s share that.
On Wednesday, I went to meet up with a friend to talk shop about essential oils. I have been using them for about a year and have decided to become a rep through DoTERRA (PS – I love using my oils. If you have any oily questions, let me know!). We went to Smallman Galley which has been on my list of places to go for quite some time.
This is a genius place. There are 4 kitchens and 2 bars in the middle of a self seating area. Every 18 months, they change out the chefs. This is meant to be a launching pad for new restaurant options in the city. They offer training to the chefs and provide them with a period of time to hone their skills while building up a following.
And the food is great! On Wednesday when I was there, I had the pumpkin curry noodle bowl. I was a little nervous about the curry spices. This was very balanced and so tasty!
On Saturday, I went back with hubs because I had heard such rave reviews about the pizza shop. They were closed when we first arrived so we started with the croque madame. It was amazing! I was a little skeptical about this because I felt that it might be a little basic compared to all of the other really interesting options. It. Did. Not. Disappoint! They really elevated this dish.
Then finally, we got the pizza. A thick, cheesy pizza topped with prosciutto, arugula, pistachios, and shaved parmesan cheese. It was quite delicious. It reminded me of the old school pan pizzas from Pizza Hut but way better. The crust was delicious and you just can’t go wrong by putting prosciutto on anything!
Also on Saturday, I had lunch with Ciara at B-52 café in Lawrenceville. This is a really cute vegan bistro that is dishing up tasty food options plus amazing drinks. On Saturday, I got the pumpkin spice latte with avocado toast and almond cashew yogurt with fruit compote and muesli. Delish! The Avocado toast is topped with a tahini drizzle which is now my new favorite way to eat avo toast.
On Sunday, after the race I took hubs back and got the same exact thing! It was that good! I just swapped out the PSL for a matcha latte instead. Hubs got a mushroom and kale flatbread and the potato and carrot latkes.
So if you ever travel to Pittsburgh, let me know…I’ll tell you all of the best places to go eat!
EQT 10 miler race recap coming up soon!
