SoulCycle + Breakfast Date + my Thursday

Yesterday my friend Jenna invited me to a SoulCycle class with her.

I’d never been to SoulCycle.  It was okay, but I don’t think I’d go back.  Actually, I’d go back if it was a social thing with a friend.

It was fun to change it up, but I’m all about intuitive exercise and if I don’t like something I’m not going to do it.  Hello, SELF CARE.  Just like with intuitive eating where you get to listen to your cravings (i.e. I don’t like curry, so I don’t eat things with curry), if I don’t like straight cycling type classes I don’t go to cycling classes.  It was a fun change though AND it meant a morning friend date, which I LOVE!

If you’ve been to SoulCycle, then you know that the music is mega loud, which I LOVE.  But I thought it was nice they had ear plugs to offer.  And they had hair ties in the glass jar next to the ear plugs, which is brilliant because I still can not figure out where all my hair ties disappear to.

Anyways.  I sweat so much, what can I say…my body is super efficient at cooling itself lol.  When I was toweling all the sweat off my body I ended up smelling the towel and it smelt so citrus-y and FRESH.  So here is a picture of my smelling the fragrant towel.  Speaking of fragrances.  I finally found a perfume I like.  It’s Dolce & Gabbana Velvet Wood, I had a little sample of it.  But then I looked at how much it cost and holy crap it’s like $250+ for a bottle of perfume?! Is that what perfume costs?! There is no way I’m buying that!

After class we headed to breakfast.  The class was pretty early so I had only grabbed a handful of chocolate covered almonds on the way out the door that morning, so I was ready to eat!

Jenna and I went to Brasil.  Jenna was a blog reader who has turned into one of my good friends.  We had our first meeting at Cafe Brasil a couple years ago, so it was nice to go back to the place our friendship started;)

Cafe Brasil is tucked away on a Houston street.  I love it.  So much green.

And the inside looks like this…

For breakfast I ordered the Eggs El Salvador, which was a pork + cheese pupusa topped with poached eggs, salsas, cheese and black beans.  It was supposed to come with chorizo, but I don’t really like chorizo…so I asked for it without.  

And naturally I got a latte.  From the recommendation from my little sister (Quinn!), I added almond flavor instead of vanilla. It was good!

Then we just hung out and talked for a bit.

After breakfast we checked out the shop next door.

This shop space was neat.  The owner wants it to be a pop-up location, so the shop changes every two months or so with a new shop!

The shop seemed to have a lot of boho-esque things, so that drew me in.  I really want a moroccan pouf for our house, but I haven’t been able to find one that isn’t mega expensive.

AND they had pineapples hanging in ropes.  How fun.

Then I came home and got some blog work done + snacked on some more chocolate covered almonds.

Later I ate a cheesy omelet with sweet potatoes and tomatoes for a late lunch.

Since I see clients late on Thursday, I’m always a little perplexed as to what to eat before I go into work.  I went with an iced latte + a pancake topped with Justin’s hazelnut butter.  I need something that is going to hold me a little longer than your average snack!

Then I headed to the office to see clients for a few hours.  I ended up having two clients need to cancel so I got home earlier than usual.  YAY!

After work I made Andrew and me a big salad with all the leftover we had from the week – kale, cilantro, roasted sweet potatoes & cauliflower, goat cheese, blue cheese, and chicken.  Dressing was olive oil, balsamic, honey, salt/pepper.

Before bed I had a generous scoop of vanilla ice cream + some Justin’s hazelnut butter! It’s the bottom of the jar and the hazelnut butter is super crumbly…YUM.

That was my Thursday! Now I’m off to pack a bag before an early wake up call for the airport tomorrow! San Francisco, here we come!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Thank you everyone who emailed me recommendations on where to eat! I so so so appreciate it!

    Check Target for some reasonably priced poufs (that’s sounds so funny). Have a great weekend!

    So either you have a mild chocolate covered almond adoration, or my chocolate covered almond predicament got you craving them ?. Have fun in California!! ?

      Hahaha they’ve been a constant snack for me lately! SO SATISFYING!

    So give me the pancakes and the ice cream please with all the nut butter! Making me hungry. I used to teach spin class. While it wasn’t soulcycle, for sure, a good spin class can really make you sweat! I loved doing it, and I like to pick up a class here and there if I’m traveling.

      Every now and then they are definitely a fun way to switch things up!

    I have been wanting to try out Soul Cycle for some time now but I am not big on cycling and a little worried I may not like it. LOVED your ice cream w hazelnut butter! Yummy!
