Dinner was amazing, we went to Palisade. I hadn't been there in YEARS. It was just as good as I remembered (if not better). I forgot my camera, which bummed me out because the restaurant is beautiful. We started with drinks, a lilikoi mojito for me and a mai tai for DH. Then we split a calamari appetizer, unlike a lot of restaurants they use big strips of calamari. They soak it in buttermilk and then do a very light breading. I loved the wasabi aioli they served for dipping, even DH liked it (and he isn't a fan of wasabi). After that we made the fatal mistake and went for the seafood chowder. It was delicious but soooo rich. For entrees DH had a big NY strip steak with mushrooms, mashed Yukon Gold potatoes, and asparagas. I had crab and mac nut stuffed prawns. They served it over summer veggies (delicious) and mashed potatoes (I had like 3 bites). The prawns were so much bigger than I thought they would be, I think there were six and I was able to eat 4.5 (and all of my veggies). This is so rare for me to feel full like that, I'm normally the bottomless pit. I think the richness of the food just did me in, I don't normally eat really rich foods. Sooo delicious though!
After dinner we had time before we had to head downtown to go for a walk around the marina, I think this really helped me digest so I didn't fall asleep during the show!
This morning I got up for a good workout. It was already hot and I didn't want to deal with it so I did a treadmill workout.
I did a variation of this workout from Fitness magazine.
|0:00–10:00||Warm-up jog; worked my way up from 3.5mph to 6.5mph gradually.|
|10:00–10:20||Sprint at 9.5 mph|
|10:20–11:20||Jog at 6.5 mph|
|11:20–14:00||Repeat minutes 10:00–11:20 twice|
|14:00–17:00||Jog at 6.5 mph|
|17:00–27:00||Run at 7.5 mph|
| 27:00–31:00 ||Jog at 6.5 mph|
|31:00–35:00||Run at 7.5 mph|
|35:00–39:00||Jog at 6.5 mph|
|39:00–55:00||Repeat minutes 31:00–39:00 twice|
|55:00–60:00||Gradually slow pace to cool down at jog/walk|
This ended up burning 700 calories for me with the cooldown, I varied incline between 1.0% and 2.5%.
After that I had to go to Costco to get more spinach. YUM!
