Happy Saturday, sugar bears!
How ya doin?
Catching your breath after the first week or few days of school?
Outrunning the hecticness of Harvey? If you're living in the coastal Texas areas or are part of the search and rescue teams making a difference in those areas, know that my prayers are with y'all. Hurricanes and the flooding are no joke.
While we were briefly in the path of Harvey in Austin yesterday, we zipped on outta there and headed home a tad early to escape the sheets of rain and miles of bumper to bumper traffic on 35.
In the past week, I've been in Austin with Mr. HHT, come home for a Queenax functional fitness training, and then returned to Austin with Mr. HHT (boring lawyer conferences). With so many free days in Austin, I scheduled our days completely around FOOD!!!!
Austin=Paleo foodie heaven!!!
So many funky tacos, spicy margaritas, quirky ceviches, and, of course, boat loads of brussel sprouts...to say I'm inspired in an understatement.
But, life is all about balance. I planned these foodie night outs knowing I'd eat clean for breakfast and lunch everyday. And on top of that, I made sure to get in some kind of workout and walking in daily.
Let's be real. You can't eat pimento cheese queso and habanero margaritas and grassfed fig ice cream for three meals a day. Well, you van, but that's gonna catch up to ya real quickly.
So here's how I balanced out some of those decadent dinners and drinks while out in Austin. Cause when in Austin, you gotta embrace the local culture and enjoy yourself in moderation.
