Do Sundays make anyone else feel extremely anxious? Despite getting my nails done today and going for a 1hr and 45 min hike, I feel frazzled. I think it’s because I didn’t get done what I wanted today. Argh.
You’re probably wondering what my title is about huh? No I’m not a RH of the Silicon Valley, though that would be highly amusing. I went to my first Dailey Method class on Friday, which took place in Menlo Park. My immediate thought was holy crap, I’m in a room full of women whom all could be on Real Housewives of Menlo Park. They were all somewhere between 30-55ish, quite beautiful, had some works done (well done, I must say), were fit beyond belief and sporting Lululemon like it was the uniform. Oh and they obviously didn’t work or happened to have the day off.
But perhaps you want to know about the class huh? It was great! I definitely worked all my muscle groups to the point of fatigue and even some cramping on the pulse movements. It was pretty intense, though it didn’t feel too hard at the time. My triceps have been burning all weekend.
I’d love to go more often, but at $20 a pop, I can’t say it’s quite worth that much. I’d probably go a handful of times per year though. I’ll stick to Spin as my main class-style exercise for now (which I did Saturday)
After running baby-related errands on Saturday, Zach and I went to a new(er) restaurant in Mountain View for dinner: Barracuda. We started with some beverages:
And ordered some apps of spicy edamame and crunchy sweet peas (not pictured):
Zach ordered a trio of items that also came with a salad and miso soup. I think there was some pork dish, chicken teriyaki and of course sashimi.
I went with a vegetable fantasy roll with mango salsa and unari (rice filled tofu skin).
Everything was so so good! I will definitely be returning here — in fact when my Mom is out in a few weeks, I may just have to take her with me!
As long as we’re talking about food, might as well share what I baked per Facebook request:
Um yeah, those would be peanut butter chocolate bars with mini Reeses PB cups on top, based off this recipe. Since I’m still keeping my sugar in check, I had a small square to make sure they were share-worthy and immediately packed them all up for my and Zach’s coworkers. Out of sight out of mind…I hope!
Alright, time to unwind with some vino and Olympics!
Ever felt like you were in the Real Housewives of…?
