The winner is Eunice from Food 4 Fitness. Her 4th of July plans were: “to sleep in, eat pancakes, lay by the pool with my book, and maybe fireworks by the beach at night. ”
Congrats Eunice! Please send me your address and I will mail out your gift card!
Eunice’s plans sounded very similar to my weekend! On Saturday I woke up and was very sore from intenSati so I decided to do the Body By Bethenny with Bethenny Frankel DVD. This was a mix of yoga and strength training- exactly what I needed! I felt so much better after the 45 minutes of yoga. I will do a review once I try the DVD one more time
I worked up quite the appetite after my workout so I decided to make some Purely Elizabeth pancakes! Elizabeth is a fellow IIN graduate so I love to show my support!
The pancake mix is gluten free, sugar free, dairy free, and wheat free. I used almond milk, 1 egg, olive oil, cinnamon, a banana, and some chocolate chips!
They look messy but they tasted delicious! I made enough for 3 days worth of pancakes! Perfect for the long weekend!
Saturday afternoon I had plans with Angela from Miss Chubby Hubby and Dori ! We went to Angela’s apartment for some delicious sangria.
After a few drinks, we headed over to P.S.1 for a party they have every Saturday called Warm Up. It was a lot of fun! They were playing all house music so I was happy!
Angela and I
It was one huge dance party!
After the party we headed over to Water Taxi Beach for some more drinks! We were all starving so we just ended up eating some dinner and heading home. I got a yummy veggie burger.
It was a great day! Angela and I actually grew up 15 minutes away from each other in Philly! Small world!
On Sunday I woke up and got a nice hangover breakfast from a nearby cafe. I got a mushroom and feta cheese omelet with whole wheat toast.
I relaxed and enjoyed the sun all day around Queens. At night we decided to head downtown to watch the fireworks by the Hudson. We ate dinner at Southwest , the same place we ate after my race! I enjoyed 2 margaritas!
I went with the Broiled Tilapia. It came withasparagus, shrimp and jicama salsa. It was kind of small for the price but extremely delicious!
My friend got the whole wheat pasta with sausage, peppers, and onions in garlic oil. I had a taste and it was great too!
We were about to leave to watch the fireworks until we saw 3 girls at the table across from us pouring their drinks into soup cups! We asked our server if we could do the same! He brought us 2 margaritas and 2 soup bowls. Amazing.
Pretty view from the table!
After the fireworks we got hungry again and spotted a Whole Foods! We made some salads before heading home. I must say, my salad was a great drunk munchy food!
Yesterday I knew I wanted to be outside but had no idea where. My friend and I decided to walk to Forest Park in Queens and lay out. We knew it was far but I don’t think we realized just how far! It ended up taking over an hour to walk to! At least we got some sun and exercise at the same time! We walked around the park and explored for another hour before getting too hot and tired. Eventually we took a cab back to the movies and saw Toy Story 3 and Eclipse. Both were really good! I am not a crazy Twilight fan and have never read the books but do love the movies. I love Edward too just in case anyone was wondering. We finished the weekend with some margaritas and Mexican at 5 Burro!
Lovely way to end the long weekend! What was your favorite part of the weekend?
