Hey everyone! I hope you’re all having a great weekend! Since today is Sunday, it’s time to take a look at last week’s workouts, and see what I have coming up for the next week. I’m excited for next Friday because it marks the beginning of my very last Spring Break!!! Haha I can’t believe I still get spring break at 25. Works for me. I also wanted to do a quick restaurant review/recap of my breakfast with Cate at Meli Café!

Here’s a look at how I did last week:

Sunday – Total Strength class (I might do yoga instead since I missed a rest day this past week, but I feel good so we’ll see!)


Monday2.5 mile run + JM Videos (I did Ripped in 30 level 1 and Six Week Six Pack level 1)

Tuesday – Zumba or Rest I ended up going to half a zumba class and leaving… I felt SO AWFUL but I had a lot of pent up energy that needed to get out and this class seemed to be some sort of “zumba light” catered toward the older crowd in the room, so I left and got in some great sprints for 2 miles!

Wednesday – 2.5 mile run + Jillian Michaels video it had just snowed 8 inches the night before, so I ran on the treadmill and then did upper body weights in the gym

On Thursday morning, I met the lovely Cate for an early breakfast before my Zumba class! I let her pick, and she decided on Meli Café in the River North area. They had quite an extensive breakfast menu, starting with juices and smoothies, then going to eggs about a million ways, pancakes, waffles, crepes and french toast. Cate even told me that Meli’s is one of only THREE restaurants in all of Chicago to use pure maple syrup. I was really surprised that only three restaurants did that!

They also had a Gluten Free & Vegan menu, however, I was disappointed to see that there was one GF item and the rest were vegan. Haha and the gluten free item confused both of us:


Are the pancakes made with polenta and rice flour, or are these separate things? Either way, I wasn’t sure I wanted to find out…

Since I was heading to Zumba after breakfast, I wanted to keep it light. I ordered their oven baked veggie omelet, but got it egg whites only and then asked if they’d add avocado. When it came out I was surprised how big and fluffy it was!

I ate most of the omelet and some potatoes and it was pretty good. I’d definitely go back to Meli’s in the future since they had such a big menu and so many options. It was also great to have a real chance to catch up with Cate, we really need to do this more often!


What is your favorite breakfast dish to order?

Do you ever go out for breakfast on a week day?

Any fun races coming up for anyone?
