So remember I was just saying something about not wanting to do anymore squat thrusts (AKA baby burpees)???

Well yeah… that didn’t work out as planned. I got through them, but they were torturous. I really had to slow down my run afterwards (4.5mph), but it turned out to be a really great run. Beautiful day in the desert…even though the clouds were weighing down on us.

Also this weekend, there was this…

…baking for a good cause (donated cookies)

Chocolate for lunch = PHANTASTICUS

YES…¬†that’s a word… it’s Latin… and it’s in the ETT Dictionary of Words That Should Still Be In Everyday Use

So I’m back in Shanghai and where do my lovely friends take me¬†for lunch? Yup, you guessed it… Whisk Choco Cafe! [I love it when the audience plays along, you guys are awesome] =)

All I have to say about that place is…. YUM! I want to go back¬†as soon as¬†my Chocolate Red Velvet cake stupor¬†wears off. Unfortunately, because I was silly and ate real food prior to dessert¬†(i.e. amazing tomato¬†soup + Caesar salad) I barely made it through my slice of¬†Heaven¬†before the chocolate coma came over me like Harry Potter’s invisibility cloak. I couldn’t help feeling like I’d been doped… but in a good way!

Whisk is¬†at 1250 Huaihai¬†Zhong Lu… if you’re in Shanghai, it’s worth a trip!

What did you have for lunch? Can you survive on chocolate treats alone? (I think I can)
