Today I got to relive my Denver experience by eating at Jason's Deli. I discovered this deli in Denver because of its location right next to my hotel. I ate there everyday for lunch because of the fantastic salad bar and its commitment to healthy and organic food. Needless to say when I discovered a location in Tyson's Corner I began planning a return trip immediately. The salad bar is packed with spinach, romaine, tomatoes, bell peppers, olives, artichokes (yummmm), hummus, onion, cucumber, mushrooms, carrots, different seeds, nuts, dried fruit, etc. Basically it's salad bar heaven :) Here's my plate (with a fruit cup):
I got spinach, bell peppers, olives, cucumbers, broccoli, mushrooms, artichokes, and topped it off with some balsamic vinegar. I strongly dislike most balsamic vinaigrettes but I love the pure vinegar...am I weird?? After devouring my salad, I ran back for a second helping (lots of artichokes and olives). It's a bit pricey but for an unlimited salad bar with such yummy eats it's completely work the price. No icky iceberg lettuce in sight.
And finally, I made my first purchase at Lululemon. Typically I'm against spending lots of money on clothes I sweat in BUT my friends and family have been harassing me about being a Scrooge and whining about hating my workout gear. Plus I'm going on a bike trip this weekend in Gettysburg and it's supposed to be cold and rainy on Saturday so I don't want to freeze to death. After consulting with the Lululemon experts and a couple of deep breaths, I purchased this:
It's the very cute Define jacket costing me slightly over $100 which is A LOT of money for me to spend on workout wear. However, Lululemon's quality is impeccable and created to last at least 5 years. The jacket is cute and will definitely keep me much warmer than my yucky old Northface which I destroyed in college. I'm testing it out tomorrow morning on route to my 6am Body Step class!!
Do you own anything from Lululemon or otherwise expensive workout wear? What's your policy on workout clothing?
