Last night was a first for me. I took a spin class. On a Friday night. Since I took Thursday off, I wanted to get a workout in on Friday. This gym membership thing is really good for me.
The spin class itself was just ok. The girl teaching the class used the microphone and said "up", "down", and "push" waaaay too much. And she would ask us questions about how we were feeling to which a few people in the class liked to scream back "awesome" or "great". This annoyed me for some reason. I like my Monday class alot better. The guy is tough, turns the music way up and doesn't talk much.
After spin, Kevin and I decided we wanted sushi again. This time, we went to Chiu's Sushi which is in Harbor East and where we went on our 2nd date. :)
We discovered the best roll of all time. Lump Crab Meat Roll. It is filled with lump crab meat and then topped with lump crab meat. Any Marylanders (or crab loving folks) out there will agree - unbelievable!We also ordered a Maryland roll and shrimp tempura. For apps, we got the edamame and gyoza. It was all delicious.
This morning we woke up to 30 degree weather with 10 mph winds and Kevin wanted to go for a 9 mile run. I did not want to go for a run. But his motivation helped get me out the door which is really the hardest part in the cold weather.
We did 2.2 miles around the park with Oscar and at one point, I felt like my eyes were literally freezing from the cold wind. Blinking hurt. We made a pit stop back at the house to grab water and by this point, I was hot and wanted to strip all my layers off. I kept going because my hamstring was doing ok. We tried to leave Oscar in the house, but he sprinted out the door after us - he didn't want to stop either. The cold weather is perfect for him, seeing as he was in a fur coat.
Oscar and I turned back after another mile because I was starting to feel my hamstring a bit, so we ended up doing 4 miles. Kevin pressed on with his ipod and did a 9-miler. Good for him! I have to admit that I was jealous and annoyed by the fact that my hamstring was holding me back - ugh! I guess I am just being impatient with this whole healing process...
I decided to try making some frittatas when I got back.
- 2 eggs
- 4 egg whites
- splash of skim milk
- turkey bacon, cooked and chopped
- handful of baby spinach, coarsely chopped
- 1/4 cup onion, finely chopped
- 1/4 cup shredded cheddar
- ground black pepper
- ground red pepper
- pinch of salt
Meanwhile, whisk eggs and milk. Season with salt and peppers. Add cooled spinach and onions to egg mixture. Mix in bacon and cheese. Spray muffin pan with PAM, pour in egg mixture - filling almost to the top, as you can see below.Bake in pre-heated oven for 20 mins. Enjoy.These were tasty, easy and pretty healthy. I will definitely be making them again.
Tomorrow, my dad planned a group run in the morning starting from their house, so I am planning to run that. The group is doing 15 miles, but I am going to shoot for 5. That way I will have done 9 miles this weekend too. ;) Afterwards, my mom, grandmom, sister, and I are making Christmas cookies and then I am doing a secret santa dinner with my friends from college at PF Changs. Busy holiday times!
Oh and a quick Oscar/Lucy update. They are BFF.
Enjoy the rest of your Saturday. I am off to start my Christmas shopping!
