Spontaneous outing

Hi bloggies, I’ve had such an unexpectedly fun night tonight!  My husband picked me up from work, as usual, and on our way to the grocery store we decided to have a date instead :)  So much fun!  We started our night at the Common Ground in Allston, MA and split their famous Irish pizza.  This thing had mashed potatoes, bacon and cheese as “toppings.”  We’ve seen this on the Phantom Gourmet before and were totally drooling over our tv.  So tonight we finally tried it and it was as delicious as we were hoping it would be.  Here is the whole pizza (I had 3/8ths):

To keep with an Irish theme, I was about to order an Irish hard cider, but switched it up at the last minute and ordered a local cider, Original Sin

It was very delicious!  I love hard ciders as an alternative to beer!!

After the first round of drinks and the food, we took off to the Sunset Bar & Grill for another round of beers (well, cider for me again). Sunset is one of my husband’s favorite bars because they offer 500 kinds of beer.  It took us over 10 minutes just to order because he always tries to get something super funky and new! :)  I got the Ace Pear Cider, brewed in California.  I’ve never seen this kind before… it was sweet and delicious.  Actually it kind of smelled like watermelon and there was no pear in the ingredients list (only apples) but I’ll overlook this – it was great!

And then we were good and actually went to the grocery store… a little buzzed 😉

Ok, now let’s rewind to the beginning of the day…


yogurt with apricot, clementine, blackberries, cranberry sauce and bear naked continental blend trail mix

Corn bread casserole slice

(I shared the rest of the corn bread with my sister and dad who really loved it !)

wild rice, grilled chicken, grape tomatoes, black beans and avocado

homemade hummus and yellow carrot sticks

small apple

1/2 of Pret a Manger's love bar


Today’s workout almost didn’t happen.  I got to the gym during lunch and realized I forgot my top, sports bra, socks and clean underwear at the office.  For a few minutes I was going to just push the workout until after work, but luckily I was really in the mood to work out, so I ran back to the office, grabbed my clothes and even made it in time for the class on the agenda.  Yay!

I took a 45 minute bootcamp class (the actual name escapes me, but this class is so tough!), followed by 15 minutes on the elliptical and 15 minutes on the stationary bike.  Workout stats:

  • Duration: 1:15
  • Calories burnt: 536
  • Ave HR: 132 ; Max HR: 205

Love it!

And that’s it for today, folks.  Thank you so much for coming out of your shell and commenting.  There have been a few new faces and every comment makes me really happy, so keep commenting! 😀

I’m off to pass out! 😆
