Wooooweee! I had a FANTASTIC day but because I spent half of it relaxing and kvetching at the spa, this post will be short and sweet since I gotta get our stuff together for our trip to Kauai tomorrow morning.

Quick recap of eats:

Before hitting the spa with Fit Daffy and R, I made a frittata with leftover sautéed baby chard and emergency protein that I split with my hubby.

Don’t throw away your leftovers even if you’re left with an itty-bitty portion.  I literally had two tablespoons of meat remaining from last night’s dinner and it made the frittata all the more yummy. 

After scarfing down my breakfast, I sped off to get some high-intensity relaxation going at Sense spa. Daaaang. This place is swanky but in an understated Silicon Valley kind of way. Loved my facial and lounging with the gals.

For lunch, R and I walked over to Madera to meet up with HA . Man, HA is one badass mofo. Instead of chillaxing at the spa like us lazy asses, she decided to go to a CrossFit Palo Alto class and then ride her bike up to the Rosewood Sand Hill – with a big, bloody, box jump-induced gash on her shin. I told you she was awesome.

At lunch, we started with some ceviche…

…and a salumi platter…

…and I ordered the pan roasted trout with a ragout of green peas, sugar snap peas, and oyster mushrooms as my entree.

I had such a GREAT time at lunch because HA and R are so funny, genuine, and super smart. It’s hard to believe that I’ve only known them for a couple months. Where’ve you girls been my whole life?

At snack time, I ate a packet of Grass Fed Just Jerky, coconut flakes, and macadamia nuts.

For dinner, I made cheater crispy sous vide duck confit legs, sautéed spinach and garlic…

…and reheated leftover curried cauliflower and carrots.

Here’s my dinner plate:

After dinner, we finished packing for our trip. Er, I guess I should say that hubby finished packing for our trip. Yes, I’m a lazy piece of poop (especially after my taxing spa day) but Fitbomb really is a superhero when it comes to cramming as much stuff as possible into super-compact pieces of luggage. Seriously, the man can neatly fold all your wordly possessions into one tiny carry-on. For a week-long trip, the four of us are only taking two little bags TOTAL and one is filled with Paleo treats.

What isn’t Fitbomb good at? I’ve repeatedly apologized for diluting his gene pool.

So excited for tomorrow afternoon when we’ll be relaxing by the pool!
