Super Fly(wheel)

I’ve been in NYC for an eternity. Okay only since Sunday but I swear one day in NY feels like 3 days to me.  I was busy with work so sorry to my friends in NYC if I didn’t reach out.  I’ll be back.  Anyhow, I had lofty ambitions outside of work. I was going to try and different workout every day.  #Fail

However, tonight on my last night, I made it to Flywheel.  It was awesome.  There are 2 Flywheel locations in LA (West Hollywood and Larchmont) but I’ve never been.  Flywheel is indoor cycling but in my opinion it is vastly different from SoulCycle and I firmly believe you can like both.

Here is what I loved about Flywheel:

– I got super sweaty (sweat is fat crying)

– It was over in 45 minutes

– Accountability – Each bike has a little computer that measures your resistance and speed (no more cheating and pretending to put on a full turn)

– Torq Boards – You can choose to have your performance display on leaderboards in class so you can see how you rank against other riders. This was super motivating as I wanted to be first.

– Performance metrics provided in your own private account (snapshot from my account below)

Looks like I’ll be heading East of the 405 more often

My Favorite Type of Food

Didn’t blog last week 😦 Lame excuse but work is keeping me busy.

My favorite type of food is Mexican Food. Perhaps it is because I was born and raised in San Diego. I don’t know. But I could eat Mexican food for most every meal. Life is definitely better with chips, salsa, & guacamole.

Here are a few of my favorite places to go:

Los Angeles Area:

Lares – 2909 Pico Blvd. Santa Monica, CA

What I love about Lares:

– Mole Sauce I can eat by the spoonful

– Mariachis (I love Mariachis)

Monte Alban – 11929 Santa Monica Blvd. Los Angeles, CA

What I love about Monte Alban:

– My 7 year old son thinks this is the greatest restaurant in LA, he refers to it as “Oaxaca”. There is never an argument about going here.

– Ensalada de Nopalitos (Cactus Salad)

Tortilla Republic – 616 N. Robertson Blvd. West Hollywood, CA

What I love about Tortilla Republic:

– Great space, cool decor, lively atmosphere

– Ceviche

– Mole Enchiladas (yes I love Mole)

– Margarita Bar with lots of delicious choices

San Diego Area:

Tony’s Jacal – Solana Beach, CA

What I love about Tony’s:

– Family owned and operated since 1946.  My family started going there in 1980 and went weekly throughout my childhood.

– Amazing cabbage salad

– Nachos that will blow your mind

Some people may tell you Fidel’s is better. I strongly disagree if you are judging based on food.
