Happy Hangover Day

Anyone feelin like Nick Nolte after a too much Cinco De Mayo celebrations?

Nick and I had dinner with my mamacita and my Bunny Boo (niece for you newbies) at Chipotle and let me tell was WAY better than standing in a packed bar/restaurant with the whole city I live in. Last night was such a great night, and we even got to enjoy a LIVE mariachi band. In FACT, the Mariachi band was at the place across the street, but it was so loud, all surrounding restaurants got to enjoy it. And did you all know that Chipotle serves Margaritas?! I had no idea until a girl I work with mentioned in yesterday. So yeah..I was sold on Chipotle as soon as I heard that.

Knowing I was gonna have some chips and guac (side note: Chipotle has the BEST guac, who woulda thought?!). So I cut the unnecessary calories and carbs where I could. So I had my usual: a chicken burrito bowl with lettuce, black beans, rice (yah yeah, unnecessary carb, but I love their rice), tomatos, guacomole, and HOT salsa.

With all this talk about food, thank GOD I worked it at XBike yesterday. I was THRILLED to actually be able to do it. If you refer back to my blog last Wednesday, I went to the gym thinking it was level 1 X Bike I was going to attend, but alas, it turned out to be level 2 (30 minutes is enough for me, thanks). So you can imagine how excited I was when it WAS in fact level 1 yesterday, and I KNEW I was in store for a detoxing sweat session. I know I say it time and time again, but, it is a CRAZY intense workout, people. Those of you who have done a spin class, can understand when I say, you will be dripping from EVERY pore. Every minute I was in there, I watched the clock because I don't think I can make it. Switching your workouts up (in weights and in cardio), is a great way to throw your body for a loop, and to challenge it. I can run and run, but put me in an Xbike class for 30 minutes, and I am determined to work it harder than Jon Gosselin trying to find his next sugar mama/arm candy.

For once in a loooooooong time, I have actually stayed on my workout plan to a T that I set for myself on Monday. It always seems like "life happens", and it stalls my workout agenda. NOT this week. I am DETERMINED to rock some short shorts this summer. When I want to stop and walk on Tread, I think back to that dressing room when I tried my little shorts on and though, "Okay Karli - get the shorts, work those legs for 3 weeks, and theeeen work those shorts" (Yes, I do talk to myself like this, LOL). So I am well on my way :)

Great news of the day: It's THURSDAY, meaning tomorrow is Friday, WOO HOO! Am I seriously the only one who starts wishing it was Friday on a Monday? This weekend is gonna be a very relaxing weekend with Mothers Day on Sunday and all. Since I know my mamacita reads my blog, I won't be revealing what I'm getting her, but it's a good one :)

Totally random:

2 Movies I am literally counting down to:

What girl ISN'T?!?!? I need to buy my tickets after I round up my ladies

I LOVE the story of Robin Hood, and I love me some Russell Crowe :)
