A couple of weekends ago, I met my friend Lauren for a Saturday morning calorie burner at FlyWheel followed by a stellar brunch at Benelux Coffee. I’ve posted about my love of FlyWheel and FlyBarre before, and also my love of their athleisure here, and this sweat session definitely kicked my metabolism into high gear. I burned close to 500 calories in our 45 minute class, and I felt amazing after. It definitely eased the guilt of my brunch selection.
My favorite part of FlyWheel is their offering of themed classes and their playlist that keeps the energy up the whole time. I don’t know about you, but I need really good music to keep my intensity up, and the playlist our instructor, Ashley, played was on point!

After Lauren and I had an intense workout, we headed next door for brunch from Benelux. I had never actually eaten brunch at Benelux Coffee, only popping in for coffee or happy hour. I must saw, I am completely addicted to Belgian waffles. I ordered waffles with strawberries and whipped cream, while Lauren ordered waffles stuffed with bacon. Both were delicious and exactly what we needed after our work out! I also ordered a latte and how cute was my latte art? It was so appropriate for fall! And Lauren ordered an iced coffee, which is usually my order from Benelux!
Lauren and I had so much fun with this morning meet up that we decided to do it monthly! It was a great way for us to spend time together, do something healthy, but then still indulge a little bit because life’s too short not to eat the bacon stuffed waffle, amiright?
I hope you had a great weekend! Don’t forget to link up with Biana and me to tell us about your weekend!
