Burgers, Beer, and Cantaloupe Margaritas

by Angela (Oh She Glows) on June 30, 2009

Good morning! :)
We had such a fun BBQ last night for our friend Zac’s birthday!

I am one slow moving chicka this morning though! Eric and I were up until about 1:30am.

Yesterday I was in a huge rush getting things (and myself) together before everyone arrived at 7:30. I was making some huge progress with Glo Bakery work so I didn’t stop that until about 6:30pm and then I had to madly rush to workout, shower, and clean in under 1 hour!

The Good News? I applied for my Food Facility Registration with the US FDA…so I am one step closer to shipping my goodies to the states! :) I spent almost all day on the phone with people in the US trying to figure out what I needed to do! I also researched labelling requirements! I felt like a made some major headway so it was a good feeling.


When I only have time for a quick workout, I always crank up the intensity!

The workout:

  • Duration: 30 mins + 2 side advanced planks with arm reaches
  • Treadmill hill walking, incline 15% speed 4.3 mph
  • Max heart rate: 168 bpm
  • Avg heart rate: 155 bpm

It was an INTENSE 30 minutes…To get through it, I broke it up into mini 5-10 minute ‘sessions’. I would tell myself….ok only 5 mins. of this session and then I can take a quick water break. It really works when I do that! :)

Then, I showered, cleaned up,

And made some delicious Cantaloupe margaritas!! I made a huge batch this time so everyone could enjoy it. I didn’t add any alcohol until I figured out what everyone wanted. It was a good thing too because Carly’s stomach wasn’t well and she wanted a virgin one.


Then the guests arrived- Carly & Birthday Boy (Zac), Steve, Dan, and Jesse!


Carly and I prepped the food while Steve and Eric BBQ’d in the rain. Look how cute they are:


Carly brought over a ton of birthday decorations, so we set up some balloons and whatnot. I sipped on a virgin Cantaloupe drink while I worked.


We gave Zac his birthday gift…Tequila ;)


I made a Cantaloupe Margarita for everyone and they all LOVED it! Even the boys! :)

I mixed in some Coconut Liquor in it…it went lovely!


Then it was time to eat!

The beef burgers:


I had a Sol veggie burger (not shown above). Carly also made a delicious salad that we had with it. I had 4 oz. of wine with dinner.

The gang minus Eric:


Then it was time for ‘cake’ that Carly made which was a delicious Apple Crisp!


With Sparklers because the Crisp was so hot it melted the candles! lol

Then I brought Zac his second dessert…which was a shot of Baileys.


Then it was time for some Wii!


I had a Coors Light while we played.


I love the intensity in Steve’s face- haha!


The Birthday Boy harassed Sketchie…


I think Sketchie ran away shortly after this pic! lol.

It was a fun night! :) Jesse is having a BBQ on Saturday at his place that we are probably going too. Should be more fun times!


So back to reality today! I have a ton of orders to do today and I also need to finish prepping for the launch of SUMMER GLOW BOOT CAMP tomorrow!!!!! I hope you are excited…it is going to be so much fun! I can’t wait! :)

Today’s Question: What is your all time favourite drink (alcoholic or non)?

Aside form Green Monsters, my favourite drink is a virgin Caesar- my dad makes the best Caesars ever. Motts Clamato juice is always a staple in my dads house :)

Hey Angela!

Looks like you guys had a great night! I tried your treadmill hill workout and I wanted to thank you because it is great! I was wondering if you hold on at all during the workout?

Thanks for all your work on this amazing blog!

Hey Sarah! Nope I don’t hold on to handlebars when working out (I am a firm believer not to)…but it took me a while to work up to incline 15% at 4.0-4.3 mph…so it is best to start slow if you feel like holding on! :) Glad you enjoyed it!

It’s very inspiring reading about your bakery journey! My favourite alcoholic drink is soho lychee liqueur and aloe very juice (which you can get at Asian grocery stores), and non alcoholic is water. I love my water. (I’m behind on reading your posts that’s why I’m commenting like 5 days after everyone else haha.)
