Charlotte kind of sucks for me. The YMCA was huge and the trainer had me and my Asheville instructor go up to demonstrate the warm-up and punches with her. I think I surprised my instructor when I told her I had practiced this new round. Anyways, tons of fun.
I went for lunch at Luna's Living Kitchen where I had the mystical mushroom spaghetti made with zucchini and butternut squash. Since it was Saturday, there was an indoor market next door so I bought some chocolates from The Secret Chocolatier.
Paper Skyscraper had tons of cool things I didn't need. Instead of hitting up Ikea, cause I can't buy anything anyways, I went to Amelie's French Bakery where I delved into their amazing cream puff and a cinnamon chocolate macaron. Yum.
When I finally got home, I went out to meet Conor and friends at Barley's before we went to Asheville Brewing. I had 3 rum and Diet Cokes while they ate a ton and drank beer and ninja bombs (car bombs with a different beer). Afterwards, we went to the LAB where I had a couple of Kamikazes and a French 75 (gin, champagne, lemon, simple syrup). We intended to go to the Dirty South, a part of the fancier Southern, but it was kind of dead. So in addition to hanging out with Conor, it was Asian Josh's birthday. We tried to go to a party afterwards, but it was dead so we all went home and I finally fell asleep at 3 or so. I would've been okay had I not kept eating leftover PB cupcakes I made the other night... :/
Today, I slept in till 11:15, did Bob Harper's Cardio Rev Conditioning workout, and went with Yancey and Luis downtown since it was so gorgeous. We walked around looking for a suitable lunch that we found at Pack's Tavern. We sat on the back patio, overlooking the downtown mini park. I felt like we were living in a small corner of a big city. Anyways, they ordered some fancy burgers: Mt Mitchell and Chipotle Ranch. I liked the Mount Mitchell better.
I had a peanut butter and grilled cheese sandwich with a side of tomatoes and cucumbers. I liked the combo of classics so much Luis and I went to buy some jalapeno almond cheese for my lunches this week.
Luis and I hung out, watched "Little Fockers," and he brought his table so I could get a nice massage. I took a nap immediately afterwards and have been tired since. I got hungry late though (cause I ate so late and woke up late) so I decided to have something salty - shirataki noodles with an egg.
Now I'm up till I can digest all this food. :(
