Fiesta Friday Recap

I hope you all are having a wonderful Saturday so far.  I know I am!  I had a good Friday, a super morning, and I just saw my cat jump into an upright TJ’s bag, which of course led to her toppling over, mewing, and scrambling around to get right-side up again.   Ha.  Kitties are my entertainment.

Anyway… I enjoyed a Dos XX Amber last night when I got home.  It’s one of my favorite beers, so I’m not going to do a full review.  Let’s just describe it as “good and refreshing!”  It’s not the best beer I’ve tasted, and it’s not even the best amber I’ve had.  However, it always hits the spot, fits in my budget, and pairs flawlessly with Mexican food.

Love the Amber; Hate the Lager

My post-work beverage lead to our decision to ditch the tofu in the fridge and head out for Mexican.  Yum!  I definitely ate tooooo much, and I got a little belly ache after dinner.  Kev walked with me once we got back to the neighborhood, which helped but didn’t really solve the problem.  At least it was delicious!

Mexican Food & Draft Beer

Why am I admitting all this?  Isn’t this a healthy blog?  Well… let’s just say I try to be honest with my readers.  If I have a beer after work (and a big beer at dinner) along with a big plate of cheesy goodness, I don’t want to hide it.  Amanda over at Running with Spoons had a really great post recently about the hidden side of bloggie habits.  Really, it’s good.  Check it out.

After I woke this morning from my food coma, I went for a run.  I completed 4 miles at 8:34 min/mile pace.  Sweet.  My booty is sore from my workout yesterday, but I think stretching it out will help.  I also did a wee bit of abdominal work, but since that’s my least favorite, and since Kevin was waiting on me to go for a 1.5-mile walk, I rushed it.  Cleo kept me company on the mat.

Now it’s time to shower and hit the lake.  I’ve got places to go and people to see, so I’m off to continue another fabulous weekend.  I hope you all do the same!

  1. I think it’s impossible to not overeat at a Mexican restaurant! Have fun at the lake!

  2. Yum! Mexican is our FAVOURITE!! With a Mexican Iceburg please (Corona topped with margarita)!

  3. I think its great when food bloggers share their splurges! We’re only normal right!?!? And NO ONE can eat perfect ALL the time! Good for you tiff!

  4. Yea, I love to eat WAY too much to hide it from anybody :), and sometimes you just NEED to overeat Mexican food (at least that’s my underlying policy at all times). With all of the excersizing you do it’s not like it matters :), you go girl!!! Enjoy the rest of your weekend, Miriam@Meatless Meals For Meat Eaters

  5. I always share my splurges…gotta have balance!!

  6. Ok I want Fiesta Friday to be a tradition! I freaking love mexican food, and I think everyday should be a party 😉

  7. Funny! But I understand about the belly ache! I’ve been on a healthy eating binge for a while since I started my body back class ten weeks ago and we went to eat BBQ one night and well, my tummy was not happy! Love Dos Equis!

  8. Just wait until its been a year! I can’t believe how fast time goes in blogging world. It’s so fun!
