Jackson Square on a gorgeous day - one of my "happy places"
And the food down there - OH EM GEE the food. How in the world do Kassie and Elle Noel stay so skinny and fit with all that deliciousness around? I just wanted to motorboat some etouffee and poboys the entire time, and I pretty much did. Let's just consider the whole trip completely ORB un-friendly (food-wise....we did walk a lot)
Shrimp Poboy - to die for!!
Took a trolley to the Daiquari store, which is one of my fav NOLA activities!!
So since I missed the 6 mile re-cap last week (and didn't even attempt 7 miles last weekend), I'll describe it in two words for you: cold, and jiggly. It was a cool 25 degrees but I didn't think I could pull off that long on a treadmill (while watching cartoons, I'm sure) Also, I felt gross during most of it cause my belly was boppin right along with me, and I know I really need to clean up my diet once and for all, especially during the week! Especially now that NOLA is behind me, and the next big event in life is the HALF MARATHON!!! But, I ran it in under an hour so that was a big deal!!
Did I mention I failed Dietbet? I'm not excited that I basically threw 35 dolla dolla bills away, BUT I did lose about 4 pounds so it wasn't a total lost cause. No more of these, as I find it a bit too challenging to lose 4% in 4 weeks..but it was definitely a good kick start to dropping some poundage.
Okay blogger friends, I am back on the horse for the forseeable future. I wish vacays didn't throw me off so much, but it is realllllly hard for me to find a balance in NOLA in particular - such amazing and unique food that I can't get in Indy, and the party atmosphere - it gets me everytime!!
