Les Mills Quarterly, Greek Food Deliciousness

Hope you're having an incredible weekend. Mine has been good but exhausting! Last night, we drove up to Columbia for the Les Mills Quarterly. When we arrived, we had dinner at a Greek restaurant right next to our hotel. I LOVE Greek restaurants, as they offer SO many yummy vegetarian options. Here's a picture of me and my friend Kristen at the restaurant:


I had snacked in the car, so I just ordered the Tabbouleh for dinner. It was incredible:



After we finished dinner, we headed for bed. We got up bright and early at 5:15 and headed to the gym for pump. The room was setup and empty when we got there:


This looks like a lot of steps, but it was actually the smallest quarterly I have ever been to! The day was AMAZING. I am super excited about all of the new releases! This set of releases is dedicated to breast cancer awareness (especially Body Step) and I think that is just so incredible/special! We ended up cutting out a little early because we were all exhausted but I ended up taking Body Pump, Body Step, Body Vive, Body Attack, and Body Flow (which was the PERFECT way to end the day). 5 hours of group fitness classes!! My calorie burn was out of control! Here is a picture of the instructors from my gym that attended the quarterly:


We drove the two hours home and since then I've been doing a lot of eating ;) Josh and I also ran to Lowe's and to the food store (to pickup some food for the football BBQ we're hosting tomorrow!). Now its college football and relaxing time! What are you up to?


A big congrats to all the blogger chicas out there who ran races today (like Meghann and Caitlin) and good luck to Lauren and LilVeggiePatch who are running races tomorrow!

Wow, what a packed day! Glad you had fun. I want to try all of the classes. I loved Combat and Pump. I was sore today from all of the squats we did! I went running today and it was nice to move my legs even though they hurt. We are watching football this weekend, I love it! Have a great rest of the weekend!

Looks like a really fun day! I'm jealous. I was supposed to go to Six Flags but the rain shut it down.

And isn't Greek food the best?

Sounds like your weekend is going great! I have never been to a Greek restaurant, we don't have too many fancy/cuisine orientated restaurants around here. Can't wait till college is done so I can move to a BIG city!!

Amelia (AC/DC: Highways to Health) said...

5 hours? That's incredible! Sounds like an exciting day though! Enjoy the rest of your weekend and your BBQ!

Krista said...

5 hours of cardio would do me in! You're awesome and I can understand how you'd be starving! Have a great BBQ!

K from ksgoodeats said...

Greek restaurants are the best when it comes to veggie dish! That tabbouleh looks great!

That day sounds tiring but awesome!! 5 hours?! You're a champ! I hope that you get to take it easy today :)

Enjoy your BBQ!!

Tabouleh looks good! Greek restaurants have many other choices that are truly Greek. Tabouleh is really Lebanese.

You must be starving! After my long run yesterday, I couldn't stop shoving food in my mouth :)

Love that you are relaxing and watching college football. It is probably my favorite thing to do this time of the year. My Gophers won last night!!
