How are you all on this lovely Wednesday? Once again the humidity is low, the sun is shining and the weather is just about perfect in Maryland. I really can’t complain! Well, yes- I can a little bit. My body is sore and tired. And my stomach feels like a bottomless pit! I don’t know why, but all of that teaching yesterday morning just really wiped me out! I slept a good 8 hours, but I feel like I need about 8 more. I took on a few extra classes for the next few weeks, because I’ll be going on vacation after that and will miss a bunch then. I just need to tough it out until then…

I started off the day with a good stretching session. I was tempted to do today’s fitmixer bootcamp workout, but I’m teaching 2 classes in the afternoon and don’t want to overdo it. Sometimes you just have to listen to the ol’ body!

Last night was fantastic! I met up with Ashley for a dinner date at Uncle Julio’s in Gaithersburg. I’m so glad that she moved to Rockville, because it’s definitely a lot closer than Northern Virginia!

Can you tell I was a little tired? ;)

I had never been to this restaurant, but suggested it since we both love Mexican food so much. I wasn’t planning on getting a drink, but then I saw this:

I am a total sucker for a “skinny” version of any cocktail- and the Guavarita sounded really good…

Let me tell you- it was beyond good. This was the tastiest 130 calories I had all day!

We split a garden salad and both got tacos with soft corn tortillas. Once I saw fish tacos on the menu, I knew that’s what I wanted. They are a big weakness of mine!

They came with a side of lovely black beans

It was so nice to sit out on the restaurant’s patio and talk (and talk and talk!) while we ate. I think we were there for at least two hours! We have so much in common, and can really talk about anything for days on end- and I love that! Ashley’s getting married in a week and half (!!) and it was really fun to hear her talk about all of the details. I know that her wedding will be a blast, and I can’t wait to celebrate with her! It’s funny to think that the next time I see her, she’ll be in her wedding dress!
