What R Kelly and I Have In Common


"It’s the freakin’ weekend, baby I’m about to have me some fun!"

While I may not love, or even like, R Kelly, he sure said it right – happy freakin’ weekend! :mrgreen: I kicked things off with an outside trail run – the first in five.long.months! Here’s my happy face:


While it was a little windy, a lot hilly and mucho muddy, I was grateful to have the fresh air on my face and something besides the treadmill under my feet.


There was a ton of other runners on the trail and everyone was shouting their "happy to finally be out of the house" hellos. Very kumbaya!


I ran 4 miles in 37 minutes. Definitely not my fastest time, at all, but after running on the flat, revolving apparatus of death, (The Fitnessista needs to TM that phrase ASAP, love it!) for months, I’ll take it, to be under skies like this! ;)


I can already feel the run in my abs. I love how uneven terrain works your entire body – it hurts so good! After my run, I proceeded to vacuum the entire house, finding a lost attachment under the couch in the process. Could this night get any better?! ;)

Yes, yes it can. We got Wok in Motion for dinner!

Wok in Motion is our faaavorite place to get high quality Chinese food around here.


The chicken is all white meat, the vegetables are extremely fresh and the food is never greasy.

I’d give them 5 out of 5 stars, but they don’t have the option to get brown rice. Ok…I still give them 5 out of 5 stars…their food is that delish. ;)


I always get Chicken & Vegetables. It’s really light and I can eat it without getting that yuck feeling that most Chinese dishes give you. I also always steal some peanuts from Ben’s Kung Pao Chicken for a little extra crunch and flava.


ps, can I just SHOW you how much chicken he got in his Kung Pao?! Un real!



Wok’s handy-dandy take out containers are perfect for lunches, leftovers, etc. Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, people! :D

I’m thinking I’ll be having some Girl Scout Cookies for dessert. I’ve branched out from Thin Mints and am currently obsessing over the Peanut Butter Sandwich cookies. OH MY WORD!!!!!!!

Oh! To answer your questions from this morning – no, I am absolutely not a model! The Datebook sent out a tweet a couple weeks ago asking if anyone wanted to be on the cover, I responded and the rest is history! :D

In conclusion, while my definition of weekend "fun" may differ slightly than R Kellys – less booze & shenanigans, more vacuuming and Chinese food – I think we can both agree that it’s nice to have a couple days off. Here’s to it! See ya!


What’s your favorite Chinese dish?

    Enjoy your night hun.

    Wok in Motion has pretty good sushi, too. You get a ton of bang for your buck, and of course, if you sit at the sushi bar when it’s not busy, lots of free food, haha.

    Go you on your run!

    MMMmmmm…yummy Chinese!

  4. Great job on the run! I’m scared to get my shoes dirty. :-)

    My favourite Chinese dish would have to be Chow Mein Noodles … I love that they’re so thin AND mixed with those pea shoots (can’t remember their name!). Now I’m craving Chinese!

    LOVE sweet and sour or honey chicken. YUM!! And have you TRIED those PB cookies dipped in milk? Holy Moly deliciousness!!!

  6. I cannot wait to run outside tomorrow!!

  7. I can’t wait to try those girl scout cookies! Are they better than frozen thin mints? Also, have you ever had a problem with shin splints, being an active runner?

  8. Nice weather and chinese food?! What a day!!! It’s such a freaking relief!!!!

  9. Congrats on the amazing workout!

  11. Congrats on the run! I don’t know how you managed the treadmill for so long, very admirable!
    I really like sweet and sour…BUT the only chinese I’ve ever really had was about 4years ago, so I hardly remember the dishes! They’reall good I reckons :)

    I adore the cashew chicken from Iron Wok on Mills Civic. I love how fresh the food is there!

  13. Yay for the weekend!!! And congrats on the trail run girl! I would KILL to go for a run, it’s so gorgeous here in SC today and this weekend.

    I love good Chinese food like that and I always get chicken and veggies :) Yum!

    I love any chinese dish with shrimp, yum!

  16. Rachel 03.07.2010

    Wow! That chinese food looks amazing. I think my favorite type of chinese is just want you had – simple veggies and chicken or tofu in brown sauce. Mmmmm….

  17. Ashley 03.07.2010

    I actually just bought Girl Scout cookies this past week, Thin Mints for me! They are quite tasty, yumm!

    I love Chinese, but can never seem to venture from Chicken Lo Mein, but the Chicken & Veggies looks delicious, I may have to try that!

    I LOVE Wok in Motion. Def the best Chinese in DM/WDm. Try the Crab Ragoons, they are to die for!

    I have only tried Wok in Motion once and thought it was pretty good. Since that visit I’ve had 3 friends get food poisoning from there so I’ve stayed away. I’m HUGE fan of Appare and Zen. Although…recently I’ve gone from Chinese food addiction to Japanese. Can’t stop eating SUSHI. So much fun to make at home too!
