Happy Cinco de Mayo!

You know how I wrote yesterday that sometimes I feel like I don’t work out “enough?”

Well, I realized before I went to sleep that I’ve worked out for seven days in a row.

So you better believe today is a rest day. This actually the first rest day in a while that’s felt forced to me–I’ve been on a pretty good workout kick again lately. But don’t worry, I’ll still be lifting a glass to my lips tonight as I celebrate Cinco de Mayo. (Cinco de Mayo 2010, apparently I forgot Cinco de Mayo in 2009???? Also, a lot of my pictures in old posts are missing since moving from Tumblr to WordPress–if anyone knows how to help with that, I’d be forever indebted to you…) I love margaritas, despite how many calories they have, but there’s a cocktail I read about in Tina’s book that I may try tonight if there’s not already pitchers of margaritas on the table. (While I believe you need to listen to your own body, I also believe sometimes in just going with the flow.)

I don’t have the book with me, but I think it’s tequila, soda water, a splash of lime juice and a splash of Diet Sprite. (I doubt most bars have Diet Sprite, but I suppose I’ll ask anyway.) If you’re in D.C., walk, don’t run to the Rio Grande. Best. Margaritas. Ever.

This morning I had the cookie dough oatmeal again. (And Tuesday. And Wednesday.) It looks so pretty at home but so gross by the time I get to work. There’s nothing green in it, so I have no idea why it takes on that hue.

HAPPY CINCO DE MAYO!

      @Emily: How did you not know about it?! While I am most intimately acquainted with the Bethesda location (which has awesome huge windows that open onto the street), I think there’s also one in Arlington.

    Too funny you mentioned taking a rest day after working out for 7 days — my IT band started bothering me yesterday and I couldn’t figure out why. Turns out I had worked out for over 2 weeks straight! I definitely took a rest day yesterday 🙂

    Rio Grande is so fun, but it gets so crowded! Better get there early to secure a good spot, especially since it’s so nice out 🙂

    Ha! I thought the picture of your oatmeal was supposed to be what you would be putting in the toilet after drinking shots of tequila, not actually your breakfast! Silly me!
