I don’t know what I did in the gym on Saturday morning but whatever it was, I was SO SORE on Sunday! I did a lot of the same weight lifting exercises I rotate in my gym days. There were some planks with leg lifts (maybe that was it?). Burpees and mountain climbers. And I did leg presses…nothing really out of the norm. But my glutes and hamstrings were so sore…like it hurt to sit down and stand up! I haven’t been this sore in a long time.
Of course, I didn’t feel sore until the next day so I didn’t do anything to preemptively ward off soreness (like an epsom salt bath). But isn’t that the way it usually works?
I did get some pampering in Saturday afternoon, though. I got a pedicure with a friend and the massage chair felt so good. Neither of us really wanted to leave…
Saturday evening Michael, Logan and I went out to dinner with some friends who are moving to Seattle soon. 🙁 It’s a really great opportunity for them but it’s a bummer for us! We’re going to miss them. Seattle isn’t that far but it’s still kind of a trek going up there (especially with a baby now).
We went to Iron Horse in Sellwood. It’s one of our favorites. The food is always fantastic and unique and they have my favorite beer on tap! Boneyard Beer:
Michael got his usual– steak fajitas. I like to try something different every time we go because there are so many good options and their menu changes pretty frequently.
This time I got Sam’s Burrito. It’s your standard burrito with Spanish rice, pinto beans, sliced avocado and topped with pico de gallo and a spicy avocado sauce. There’s also pineapple salsa in it (which is what sold me on it in the first place). It comes with a side salad with orange and jicama on it. The salad was so delicious! It was light and summery and I loved the jicama on it.
Apparently the burrito was a vegan option. The waitress informed me of that (I thought it was just vegetarian) and she said “you can add some meat to it to un-veganize it”. LOL So I got shredded pork (so juicy) and sour cream. Definitely not vegan anymore. It was so tasty though! I loved the crunchy jicama and the sweet pineapple salsa. It would have been just fine had I left it as a vegan burrito, too.
I ate about 3/4 of the burrito (it was really big!) and Michael ate the rest.
Logan was doing super good at the restaurant and was so fascinated by our friend’s kids (they are almost 9 and 3 years old). He wanted to play with them so badly! It was pretty cute to watch.
We hung out for a bit but it was pretty loud. We decided to walk a few blocks to get ice cream at Dairy Queen. The kids were stoked (and so were the adults, honestly).
It was a nice evening and it was good to walk a little in the fresh Fall air. Sorry the pictures are a little blurry. I guess we were a little too excited about the dessert. LOL
We sat outside for a little bit and ate our ice cream and then it was time to head home. It was way past all the kid’s bedtimes and Logan was like “I’m out dude, I need to sleep!” and immediately fell asleep in his stroller.
We said our goodbyes (boo hoo) and made plans to see them when we go up to Seattle in December.
Sunday I got to sleep in a bit, which felt really nice, especially with how sore I felt. I went swimming (which felt really nice on my sore body) and then sat in the hot tub for awhile–which felt even better. Unfortunately I think it was too late to try and stave it off so I took some Advil, watched Netflix with Logan and used the heating pad. I can’t remember the last time I felt like this!
Finally, if you follow me on Instagram, you can see that Logan was trying to crawl this weekend!!
P.S. I was STILL SORE on Monday!!! What the heck did I do?!?!
