Old and New

Happy Saturday loves! Adam and I woke up this morning with one thing on our mind: Working out. We both were feeling a little sluggish this week so we knew we needed a good sweat. There is a gym on the corner of our street that offers free CROSSFIT classes on Saturday so we tried it out.

There were 60 people in this class which was great motivation. I really enjoyed that everyone in the class was extremely fit and nobody gave up during the hour-long workout. My bum is already hurting from the air squats. We are going to look into attending more classes although I think its VERY pricey so we shall see.

After our CROSSFIT class I made some Funfetti Protein Pancakes. Have you seen these yet?

I added 2 scoops of cake batter protein and 1 cup of water and it turned out pretty amazing if Ā I do say so myself.

The package claims to make 12 cupcakes…But it only made 6 for us.

After running some errands and doing “chores” we ate lunch so we could head to the movies!

Spaghetti Squash Lasagna (recipe coming soon)

Plan was to eat before we got there so we wouldn’t want popcorn.

We held out for about 20 minutes. Adam and I split the kid’s meal which comes with popcorn, fruit snacks and a drink. Perfectly proportioned for the two of us and it was fitting we got the kid’s meal since we went to see this

Lion King in 3D baby! We were definitely the only people in the theater above the age of 4… No joke.

Since the movie theater is so close to Trader Joe’s/Target Adam agreed to getting the grocery shopping out-of-the-way. Only new thing I bought:

But I bet you it’s going to be a good one! Thinking of whipping up some pumpkin cream cheese to go with it. Jealous? I’ll share my creations.

While we were grocery shopping Adam volunteered to make dinner. I knew that meant he wanted some red meat (which I wont cook) so I agreed.

Steak, shrimp, mashed potatoes and asparagus… I never knew my boyfriend was such a good cook. He may have just gotten himself into trouble because I’m going to request this happens A LOT more now šŸ™‚

We’re going to enjoy an ice cream sandwich and watch a movie. Big day of apple/pumpkin picking tomorrow!!

QUESTION: Do you order popcorn at the movie theater or do you have more will power than me?

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)
