Torchy’s Tacos + surprise!

 aaaaaahh…  sunday.  Dego woke up at 4am to nurse as usual and i didn’t get back to sleep until around 6. before i knew it,  it was time to get on up for church!

ready for my 2nd date of the weekend and unbeknownst to me, we headed to Torchy’s Tacos on our side of town. that line was serious!  it was our first time there, and i’m sure Sonny remembered me saying we needed to check them out a few weeks ago. i kinda wanted brunch brunch, but rolled with it.

little did i know there was a pretty lil’ lunch guest already there and waiting on us to arrive- my dear friend Ericka!!   talk about a pleasant surprise- i was so happy to finally see and talk to her in person again and not via computer or phone as she lives in another city.  we spent the afternoon eating and laughing, and if she were staying longer we would have hit the gym together too i’m sure!   i’m so honored to know her and excited about where God is taking her foster care program Think Love Smart, as well as all her other endeavors!

Ericka had been to Torchy’s once before and said the Democrat w/ chicken was great, so i took her word for it.

she was absolutely right.  shredded fajita chicken, topped with fresh avocado, queso fresco, cilantro, onions, and a wedge of lime on corn tortillas.

Sonny got something yummy looking with eggs, beef,  and cheese on flour tortillas,

and i split the Mr. Orange with him as well.  salmon (duh), queso fresco, avocado, sweet corn, and black beans on corn tortillas. my fave of the bunch!  YUM.

then we went to relax, hang out, and catch up.  our kiddos love them some Ericka too! wrong boob though, Dego. so funny.

after E hit the road, so did i! i did some GGG (gym, grocery shopping, & grazing (grazing in the bulk aisle of course).  i did almost 1 hour of treadmill intervals… ya, more intervals, i know, i know.  booooring. i expect to get cleared to workout THIS week and i’m crazy excited about it!  i need workout variety in my life right now.

 made a few meals for Sonny and i for the next two days or so and shut the kitchen down. lean protein, veggies, good fat, and complex carbs on the side.  if you’re interested in a customized meal AND workout plan (because you can’t be efficient without both), email me! leah.egwuatu@6packusa.com. i will be starting my 6 Pack plan as soon as my OB gives me the green light.

oh wait and then there’s this guy.  i can feel my cool whip addiction creeping back up on me from these crazy postpartum sweets cravings.  this is still a lighter alternative than say full fat ice cream or a restaurant dessert though.  sugar-free cool whip and low-fat honey graham crackers.  place it in the freezer so the cool whip can harden first.  all things in moderation!

Q: moms, are your preggo cravings different from your postpartum cravings?

Q: what have you tried at Torchy’s?

  1. I went to Torchy’s yesterday too! (The one in Rice Village) I didn’t know there was a closer one! I have to look into that. It was only my second time there, but well worth it. The Baja Shrimp Tacos are AMAZING!

    Ps… You are such and inspiration!

we can learn so much from watching babies learn to walk! they are the true definition of 'fall down 7 times, stand up 8.' when we fall off, miss a few workouts, eat the entire pantry in one sitting, lose motivation, etc., ALL IS NOT LOST. it just proves you are human! after getting knocked down, staying down, giving up, and telling ourselves we can't change or do better is the worst thing we can do. and dont let the fear of falling again keep you from even trying!!! when Dego's butt hits the floor he gets frustrated, cries, reaches for me, or throws a tantrum (or all of the above)... but before you know it he is on his way back to his feet and ready to go again like he never fell. can't change the past. keep moving foward. keep going. keep getting back up no matter what. get up over again until you win. do not stop until you have achieved what you set out to do🏃. cardio + abs is all i could squeeze in today so i'm looking forward to hitting the weights tomorrow morning💪 #twinzies #motivationmonday #falloff #fallon #repost respect and admire the characteristics of others!  just don't forget that we ALL have seeds!  the grass is greenest where you water it🌱 #youthinkyouknowbutyouhavenoidea #wateryourgrass i dont know what was meaner, that thunderstorm we got caught in or that wedgie 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂 we got it in tho and hope you did too💪! #sundayrunday #fitfoodiele family:
they drive you crazy.
they drive you nuts.
they drive you looney.
BUT- 
they drive you.
#sunday #noweverybodygotosleepsoicangooutsideandrun 🏃✌ puttin' my 20lb babybell to work👶💪!
💙1. i sped these up so i could fit it in the vid- take these suuuuper slow (especially when sitting baby down and rising up w/ baby👍). the slower the better for both parties! you really get to maximize that glute and lower body burn. keep those knees behind those toes and dig your heels into the floor. core tight, back flat.
💙2. tricep presses! keep your elbows narrow and close to your torso while performing the press. 💙3. get in a plié squat position and alternate bouncing baby on your knee while making a big rainbow motion with your upperbody. Dego looooved these as you can see😂😂😂. have FUN and bond with your little one
