Pumped Up Pizza

Geez a lou!  BodyPump killed me tonight!  It’s been almost two weeks (we went last Monday), but man….I got worked tonight!  It felt great by the end though  :)  I think I may need to try one of my yoga download classes this weekend to stretch everything out.

 

 

Back to my afternoon! 

 

Nick and I went to Mike’s Grille in Blacksburg today for lunch.

Smoke free – nice, huh?

 

They are known for their huge burgers and he likes them a lot.  Here we are with our food – look how big that burger is!

We had to try their onion rings….just so we could compare them to New River Grille’s (which are my all time favorite! ). Here’s a picture of New River Grille’s onion rings, just for visual comparison.  Mike’s onion rings were pretty good, but a bit greasier than New River Grille’s. I know they’re fried – but I would rather not have tons of grease left over on my fingers after picking one up. Good enough to get again, but they don’t beat New River Grille’s onion rings  :)

 

I got a chef salad, and ate a few of the onion rings.

 

Work was work – I was glad it was Friday!  We had couple crazy things happen this afternoon, so that made it a bit more exciting. I am so happy it’s the weekend!!!!

 

 

For a snack before BodyPump, I had a hard boiled egg and a clementine – I needed a little protein to get through class!

BodyPump was killer, and I felt like I got a really good workout. This is when I really wish I had a heart rate monitor, because I just have no clue what I burn in that class! Someday soon.

 

 

I was SO excited about dinner tonight!!!

 

Over Christmas break, I got to go to the Trader Joe’s near my parents house. We don’t have one close to us, so I’ve only been twice – sad, I know.  :)  I bought some of TJ’s whole wheat pizza dough and thawed it out today to use for dinner.

 

We did a half and half pizza. Can you tell whose side is whose?    :)  By the way – the pizza stone is awesome Mom! I love it!

Nick’s has a bit more cheese than mine.  I didn’t have any mozzarella other than string cheese, so I just cup of a few of those to use on my side.

 

Nick’s side had sausage, red onion, mushroom, quesadilla cheese, string cheese, and pepperjack cheese.

 

Mine had string cheese, pineapple, and ham.  Yum  :)

This and a salad?  Perfect and easy Friday night meal!

I hope everyone has had a great Friday!!! The weekend is here!  

 

Breakfast tomorrow should be good  :) 

 

 

Do you have a  favorite Friday night meal?

      I don’t think I’ve had DQs onion rings! I may need to add them to my list soon :)

      Susan:
      BodyPump is a Les Mills class at our gym. It’s an hour long, and you’re focused on working one muscle group for each song during the class. It basically takes you to muscle exhausation and is such a great workout. I’m really bad about really pushing myself with weights, and this makes me! So, you have a warm up, and then for the first entire song, you’re doing different reps of squats. then you stretch, and the next song is working on your chest, etc.

    That’s what our family’s pizza usually looks like — veggie lovers on one side and meat lovers on the other! Of course, now my daughters have decided that they only like cheese, so we end up with two pizzas!

    What exactly IS bodypump?
