Monday: 15 min abs
I forgot to mention the best part of last weekend.. I found a new cupcake place 🙂 DC has some pretty excellent cupcakeries such as Georgetown Cupcakes (as seen on tv!), Sprinkles, and Baked & Wired. All of which have unique qualities that make them extra tasty. I would know, I had had a taste off when I first moved here. All were amazing and all left me with with a happy tummy ache.
Over the weekend we stumbled upon a new place called Fraiche Cupcakery.
I got the fluffer nutter and got chocolate banana. Both were excellent! They had the normal flavors, Red Velvet, Vanilla, Cinnamon (i almost got this one), but they also had “savory cupcakes” that were like broccoli cheddar, beet & goat cheese, cupcakes that seem more like an appetizer. I wasn’t brave (or hungry) enough to try those out, but they looked good!
The shop it self was clean and cute, decorated in that famous Tiffany’s blue/teal. If we’re in the area i’m sure we will stop back in for a sweet treat.
Since its 13 degrees out today I’m heading back to the dread kill <–my auto correct did this, and i’m not sorry, for once I think it’s right– for Tuesday’s track workout. Can I tell u how tired I am of the treadmill, but how I think it might help make me a better runner?
1) My mental game is getting tougher.
2) I tend to run slower on treadmills than outdoors so I’ve been really good about keeping my speed up. I’m hoping it translates to faster times outdoors.
3) I can spot check my form in the mirrors and so far I’ve been happy with how my form has come together over the last few years.
4) I’ve been able to test different fueling methods since there’s a bathroom nearby.
5) It feels good to wear shorts. Not that this helps my running but it helps me go a few extra days without doing laundry haha.
Okay one more thing that’s totally random. My sister sent me this shirt with the sweetest note. Basically the year we were supposed to be Kimberly the pink ranger from Power Rangers for Halloween I got chicken pox. She got to wear the costume and I got to lay in front of Grandma’s tv and miss trick or treating.
It makes me happy.
Cupcakes? Love ’em or leave ’em?

Love your pink power ranger shirt. I can show you plenty of Cameron as the green ranger.

haha that’s awesome. Plus the pink ranger and green ranger were totally in love 🙂

Have you watched the show Flashpoint? The actress is on there and we always just call her ‘Pink Ranger’! Our nephew was really into Power Ranger when it first came out so we had fun buying VHS tapes (with Rita Repulsa!) and toys and so on … and when our kids were old enough we watched with them, starting around the Lightspeed Rescue series …
LOVE cupcakes, we make loads of them ourselves – Lisa is an awesome baker ( I am decent, but when it comes to scones and cupcakes I don’t even try!) so we have some cool varieties. Was the Fluffernutter actually peanut butter and marshmallow fluff? That soundspretty cool
I thought ‘beet and goatcheese’ said ‘BEER’ and then it would have been a ‘must try’ 🙂
Love the shirt! 🙂

mmm, a cupcake taste-off?! That is such a good idea! All those cupcakes sounds really tasty – especially the chocolate banana one! I’m glad that you’re trying to put a positive spin on the dread mill. Hope your workout goes great!

Haha I’m trying! Definitely burned off the cupcake and yes the workout went better than expected!

Are there people who “leave” cupcakes? Wtf. I’m a little in love with Georgetown Cupcake, at least the crazier flavors. The monthly ones are great and once every month or so I’d make Joe drive me 45 minutes to Gtown on a Tuesday because Tuesdays were the days with Maple and Espresso. Then we’d also get the monthly special. They totally stopped making both of those fav flavors which is soul crushing. I’ve tried a few other DC shops but all far too sweet on the icing for my taste. I think I’d love the savory ones!

Georgetown is by far my favorite. I love the light and fluffy cupcakes. Most that are out there are heavy and cake-y and just too much. Anytime georgetown does a cupcakes with champagne in it i get excited! i LOVE the expresso too.

I can’t even handle all of those cupcakes. Yum. Must have.

Your form was amazing on the treadmill. I was so proud like “Yeah, my trainer is beast and yours isn’t. ” Haha! Wgen your on the dread kill (btw, perfect and using from now on. Stolen autocorrect!), do you use an incline? I’ve started experimenting with the incline and I can def tell a difference.
01/30/2014 at 11:25 PM
Haha thanks and yes 1% incline always. 0 incline is like downhill running.
