Rejuiceanation

Friday I treated myself to a lunch out in Hoboken. I usually wouldn’t do this. Especially because I’m currently unemployed, but I had a Living Social deal so it was kind of free?

The restaurant’s name isĀ Rejuiceanation. Their about us section on their website says “Rejuiceanation makes it a priority to promote nutrition and its vital role in helping people uphold healthy and active lifestyles.”

When I got to the restaurant I was overwhelmed by all of the choices on their build a salad menu… I had to be choosey though because everything was quite pricey. $1.75 for avocado? $1.75 for artichokes? $1.00 for asparagus? $2.25 for grilled chicken? $1.00 for sprouts? Add that to my $2.00 lettuce bed and we were looking at a $10 (HALF) salad.

The salad was small but good… It had a lot of avocado (not complaining) but I could’ve made the same thing for A LOT cheaper.

I also ordered one of their fresh squeezed juices. Red Velvet – Apple, Beets & Carrots

That was another $5. My total was around 16 or 17 dollars for the salad and juice. Whole Foods might even be cheaper than that!?

I’ll go there again, but only because I have enough left on my gift card for one more salad and juice. After that I don’t think I’ll be visiting there unless I’m feeling REALLY lazy. Which probably means in 2 weeks.

Adam got home early from work (weeeee) and we wanted to see Horrible Bosses so I made a quick Taco dinner.

Ground Chicken, Vegetarian Refried Beans, Romaine Lettuce, Salsa, Mexican Cheese, Greek Yogurt (used as Sour cream)

I made a taco salad with all the fixins and made us each half of a cheese quesadilla on a flat out.

We took public transportation to the movie (eh, i need to get used to this).

But the view ended up not being so bad.

Even if the people were a little creepy šŸ™‚

Horrible bosses in our opinion was hilarious. It’s definitely a crude type of comedy but the laughs were consistent and I’m always down for a night of giggling. We snacked on a small popcorn which made my belly sad butĀ there’sĀ something about movieĀ theaterĀ popcorn that tastes SO GOOD!

I think were heading out to explore NYC. Enjoy the rest of your weekend!!

QUESTIONS: Have you seen horrible bosses? What is your favorite type of movie? I like a good romantic comedy (typical girl)

WIAW

It’s that time of the week! What I ate (wore and did) Wednesday šŸ™‚

This morning I woke up ready for a run… I checked the weather and it was only 55 degrees! I threw on a long sleeve shirt to keep me warm. Redskins represent!

I look way to excited for 6am! (Please excuse the mess, I’m packing)

Today wasn’t just any normal run though… Today I did something I’ve NEVER done. I hit the pavement sans iPod. My iPod was charged but I wanted to clear my mind so I tried running without entertainment. It worked! IĀ  knocked out my 4 miles in 32 minutes. Go me šŸ™‚ I also came home and did a 10 minute ab video On Demand. I forget what it was called but the trainer sure was handsome!

The reason I wanted to clear my mind this morning was because today marks 3 years of my Uncle ChuckĀ passing away and I knew my morning could get rough. He was diagnosed with Stage 4 colon cancer and passed away about a year later.Ā It’s definitely been one of the hardest things my family has EVER had to deal with.

So this mornings run was for you ā¤ Missing you everyday.

After my workout I had breakfast… and it wasn’t cereal for once!

I headed into work around 10:30 so the girls andĀ I headed straight over to my Aunt’s house. My grandma wanted to plant flowers in memory of my Uncle and I didn’t want to miss it – Plus, the girls love these types of activities! My brothers, cousins, aunts and grandma all attended and ordered pizza for lunch. I however had already packed my lunch and am not one to waste food.

Definitely not as fun as pizza…But still delicious šŸ™‚

When lunch was finished we all went out back to get our gardening on.

Dig the hole

Plant the flower

Add more soil to the top

Water the plant

Voila. In between planting the girls also took some breaks to do some trampoline jumping. Someone may have jumped on someones face… But it was nothing a little ice cream couldn’t fix!

Naps were taken by the girls. I enjoyed a snack or two while catching up on blogs.

I got home around 615 and immediately ate dinner. I like to eat early!

Meh. Just so-so. You know what comes after dinner right? My favorite time of the day.

By the way – Thanks for all of your recommendations on the cookie name… I think I’ll go withĀ Shanna’s – Breakfast Cookies!
