Weekly Workout

Last week I still didn't hit the treadmill, but I worked on projects and I got a good amount of walking in on Wednesday. We  walked around DC with my sister and nephew (they were out for a National History Day contest that he was participating in). It was hot and humid all week last week, but thankfully Wednesday was slightly cooler and it even rained on us twice while we were walking around. This wasn't a bad thing since it helped us cool off a little :)

I forgot to wear my fitbit, so I don't know how far we walked, but it was at least 3-4 miles. Those miles were a mix of flat areas, hills, pushing Phil, not pushing Phil, etc.

Pushing Phil was actually easier except when we were going uphill. Phil gave me something to lean on and helped me walk a bit more normally. I've definitely had the pregnancy waddle going on the last couple weeks when I do much walking, and the stroller helped me walk better.

My nephew had a busy schedule with his National History Day stuff, but we managed to hit up the Air and Space Museum and the National History Museum while we hung out with him and my sister.

We went to our old standby Chipotle for lunch, but tried the ShopHouse for dinner. It's a small chain owned by Chipotle, with only a few restaurants, mostly in the LA and DC areas. Their food is all gluten free and influenced by Thai and Vietnamese flavors, focused on rice or rice noodle bowls that you build. Rice or noodles topped with protein and veg, then topped with a sauce and a garnish. You pick and choose your combination of the five items.

I thought it was pretty good, but a bit spicy, even though I tried to pick less-spicy items. River and Sunshine also thought the food was a bit spicy. Mr M didn't have a problem with the spiciness and I don't think my sister and nephew had a problem with it either. The price is similar to Chipotle's burrito/burrito bowl, so not super expensive. It's nice to be able to eat somewhere new without having to worry about gluten contamination and we will probably eat there again if we're in the same area.

For some reason none of us took any pictures until we were waiting for the metro. So we have a picture with crappy lighting of Sunshine, River, and my nephew. We were surprised that we got a smile out of River since it was almost 9 pm and he'd been up since 6:30 am and had only had a single 5 minute nap all day. The second we put him in his car seat he finally gave in and went to sleep.
