Today was a day of decadence. A cheat day I knew would come long before I started the Whole30. My dad came down to attend my vintner dinner, so I wasn’t going to compromise the day with trying to be Whole30 compliant.
This morning I woke up at 8am, even with the time-change happening. I have been waiting for spring forward to happen ever since the fall back (I hate early nights). Then I ran the slowest 6 miles of my life! My heart rate was up even though it felt impossible to get my legs moving. Sunday’s are quickly becoming my worst running days. Then I ran an additional 3 at a slower speed for a total of 9 miles.
We had brunch at one of my favorite places, Solace and the Moonlight Lounge. We shared an over-the-top cinnamon roll with a literal mountain of frosting. Then I had the spicy honey greek yogurt with homemade granola. After this I felt like I went into sugar shock!
The day’s main event started at 6pm at Pacifica Del Mar. 5 courses– from a boucheron cheese puff, seared day boat scallop, espresso-rubbed duck breast, peppered striploin steak and a spiced carrot cake, each paired perfectly with wine from a riesling, rose, pinot noir, cabernet and port.
This was one cheat day well spent. 🙂
