It has a pretty sad little monitor for tracking distance, speed, etc., but I plan on wearing a heart rate monitor and just going by time anyway. It's official though - the room can be considered an official "office/gym" instead of just a "room with a tiny Walmart desk and a giant treadmill." So that's exciting. See the little plugs and wires in front of the TM? That's because one day I had a fantasy of sticking a TV up there. Ah, dreams....
To celebrate picking up the bike (any maybe because we drove 45 minutes away to pick it up and I was STARVING) we went for lunch at Moe's. I've never been there before, but it's a new favorite. Um, a salsa bar? Tofu tacos? Sign me up.
I got two chicken tacos and then realized they came with a giant bowl of perfect chips, and the previously mentioned salsa bar. I at one taco and then gave up - they were good, but the chips were better.
|2 Tacos, chips and 2 salsas: tomatilla salsa is amazing!|
|Tasty taco abandoned for chips.|
I saved the taco and wrapped it up to take home and eat for dinner. Popped it in the fridge, pulled it out 4 hours later. Soggy corn tortillas. Nasty. Being the genius/cheapo that I am, I figured out how to make it work. Step one: throw away soggy tortilla. Step 2: Dump the taco fillings and salsas on a bed of lettuce. Step 3: Top with homemade corn tortilla chips.
I will undoubtedly concede that Moe's meal was better. No question. But this was pretty dang tasty too.
If you love Mexican food: what's your favorite place? Local or chain?
I clearly don't have a very authentic view of Mexican food, and I'm okay with that. BUT - this might be my new favorite. Definitely beats the pants off Taco Bell. I have never tried Chipotle - is this similar?
Any suggestions for ways to spruce up the old home gym? Blank walls aren't that motivating or entertaining, it turns out.
I'm thinking of some cool framed prints or posters, maybe motivational type things? Any suggestions?
