Last night Sadie’s annual birthday challenge continued!
Ever year on Sadie’s birthday, Ryan and I select two different foods that we think Sadie will love and put them both in front of her at the same time, taking bets as to which one she’ll go after first.
Longtime PBF readers may remember the previous challenges that popped up on the blog:
Each year the winning food progresses to the next year, where it faces a new challenger.
This year the contenders were…
McDonald’s Grilled Chicken Sandwich vs. Arby’s Roast Beef Sandwich
I though the chicken sandwich would win because Sadie is a chicken fiend. Ryan, on the other hand, put his money on the roast beef, since roast beef gives off an incredibly mouth-watering scent.
Before watching the video below, which sandwich do you think she chose?
Now behold the results!!!

(And yes, we have a room in our house with nothing in it and no plans to ever put any furniture there. Holla!)
We’re already brainstorming the competition for next year. Any suggestions? Right now we’re thinking a Sonny’s pulled pork sandwich might sway her…
Obviously we couldn’t hit up McDonald’s and Arby’s to pick up Sadie’s food without nabbing something for ourselves even if we try not to eat a lot of fast food.
McDonald’s soft serve cones make my heart smile.
Today Ryan and I hit up the gym but my workout plans were a little unusual! I decided to do Ryan’s workout with him.
I want to change up my workouts a bit and incorporate some new-to-me moves and exercises and figured following him would be a great way to challenge my body in a new way. Thankfully he’s always more than willing for me to copy his workouts.
We started with 20 minutes on the elliptical before I let Ryan take over.
Our workout looked like this:
It was definitely a total body workout!
I did modified versions of the pull ups and push ups and my arms were burning. Ryan and I talked about me possibly doing all of my Saturday workouts with him. I like that his workout schedule has Saturdays as a total-body day with lots of powerful exercises. I think it will challenge me in a new way!
Before the gym I only ate an apple with a scoop of Justin’s honey peanut butter, so when we got home I was hungry!
I quickly made a hearty breakfast that included scrambled eggs (three eggs + milk + shredded cheese), a toasted whole wheat English muffin with raspberry preserves and a banana.
I’m hoping this meal will keep me nice and full through a late-morning hike with Ryan and Sadie!
I’m sure a mug of peppermint crème coffee will help keep me energized, too.
I hope you all have a fantastic weekend!
