An Extra Happy Friday

Happy Friday, everyone! My Friday is especially happy because I only have to work half a day and tonight is date night with my husband!

We have decided we will be going to Texas Roadhouse for dinner. I always get the same thing when I go there; the 6 oz. sirloin with two side salads (combined) and a side of ranch. I think it's crazy that they don't offer a steak salad on their menu. I usually cut up my steak and add it to my salad to create my own. I have planned ahead and added my meal to my nutrition tracker. I also have added a Starbucks latte to the tracker as we will most likely have Starbucks for dessert. When we are "in the city" for date night we love to visit Barnes and Noble and sip on lattes as we scan the shelves. It's a quite and relaxing date night tradition.

I just remembered that I haven't updated the date night portion of my 25 by 25 list in quite a while. I know that we have gone on more than 12 dates this year but I haven't blogged about all of them. This date night will count as 8 of the 12 we need to share before I turn 25 on February 4, 2013. This is probably one of my favorite items on my 25 by 25 list by far!

Last night, my mom and I went to the gym. It was my third time for the week. I walked on the treadmill for 25 minutes. I like going to the gym with my mom because we get to talk! It's unusual for a couple days to go by without me talking to her, but chatting at the gym is much better than catching up on the phone. I think we have both been doing an awesome job at sticking to our gym routine and I hope we continue to do this through winter and early spring!

Do you workout better with a buddy or on your own?


  1. Happy date night to you!

    Cole and I do the very same thing - go to Chapters and buy too many books while drinking Starbucks :D

  2. Great job on walking!

    Have you thought about getting fitness capris/pants? Those cotton pants look like they would feel really heavy! I never thought that "tech" apparel would make a difference, but when I switched out my cotton shirts & sweatpants for real "athletic wear," I found myself much more inclined to exercise.

    Enjoy Starbucks! I want to try a pumpkin spice latte sometime but I can't ever seem to fit it into my calories. Maybe this weekend...

  3. Have a nice date night Kay!
    Good Job working out and I prefer having a work out buddy sometimes too because they make me go to the gym even when I dont want to...but sometimes I hate having a work out buddy because they make me go to the gym even when I dont want... haha ;)
