NROLW and Ravenous

It’s the start of my weekend! I actually slept until 7 am before hitting the gym. Did workout A of stage 6 again. The negative chin-ups were harder today, not sure why. Maybe from my intense workout yesterday.

  • Negative chin ups:  3 sets of 1
  • Lat Pull downs:  10 sets of 2  at 70 and 60 pounds (got tired)
  • Pushups:  2 sets of 8
  • Barbell split squats:  2 sets of 8 at 65 pounds

I couldn’t hold the chin ups as long as on Monday. Then did  some walking on the treadmill.  I thought it would start raining before I biked home, but it held off.

Decided on protein pancakes with maple/banana topping for breakfast:

I kept feeling like I needed to get to work.  That’s one problem with working at home, the environment is always the same!

Well, John won the football picks again this week….. grrrr….  I need to step up my game!  His dinner choice was Ravenous – a french crepe place.  Now, I have to say that I would have chosen to go here for my dinner anyway as well, so I guess I won after all!

It’s a cute little place, very small and intimate inside:

We sat at the window counter, which was fun.  Started with an order of pommes frites with a cajun dipping sauce.

Delicious!  Thick cut and hot fries.  I can’t remember the last time I had fries!

I chose the Sorbonne crepe: Fresh asparagus, sun-dried tomatoes, and chevre.  Organic salad on the side.

This was so good!  I actually couldn’t taste the crepe much because the filling was so flavorful!  The goat cheese had a wonderful flavor with sun-dried tomatoes.  And the asparagus were the really thin ones and super tender.

Since the meals were light, we decided to split a sweet crepe for dessert:

Dulce De Leche: Butterscotch-caramel spread rolled in a crepe with toasted pecans. Served with whip cream & sliced peaches.

Another winner!  This did not need the peaches (they were canned).  Or they should have been fresh peaches.  The dulce de leche filling was oh-so-good.  Thick and creamy:

We definitely want to come here some time just to each have our own dessert crepe.  There are so many to choose from!  We are thinking we need to try some crepe making at home.

And I wasn’t stuffed after dinner, which is also a good feeling.

Tomorrow John has a 5K race to do.  I am not racing with the duathlon coming up in 8 days (!!!!!).
