Happy Monday, everyone! This weekend was another mix of busy and relaxing, sunny and rainy, and I was all for it.
My Friday started once I finished work and hopped in the pool for a swim. I got through 1.1 in about 45 minutes and was more than ready for lunch, which was a big salad. I had 8pm dinner plans that evening and had to take a nap to 1. Be able to make it ’til then and 2. Not snack on everything in the kitchen. Dinner was fun and we had ice cream for dessert, which always makes life worth living.
My Saturday started with this glorious breakfast. Poached eggs on toast with bacon.
Once I was digested and hydrated, I headed out for a run. It was a perfect day! I do try to make the 3.1, but I ran out of flat real estate and would’ve had to go uphill to finish out, so I stuck to 3 miles. My legs were already feeling shot and it was a struggle to make it through.
That afternoon, my sister and I went for lunch and a movie. First, we hit up a Greek restaurant for gyros.
Then we headed to the theater to take in Lady Bird, which was excellent. Female writer and director Greta Gerwig FTW!
My evening pretty much consisted of this:
I slept in way later than anticipated on Sunday, but I think my body was resting to avoid a cold. Plus, it was rainy, my favorite sleeping condition! I have a slight sniffle and tickle in the throat, but I’m persevering with mind over matter!
Breakfast was a stack of my favorite peanut butter pancakes. Still working on the art of the stack.
My workout was still a solid one. I started with strength training, upper, lower, than a mix of both and ended with 20 minutes of cycling. I love my workouts for my mind and body, but I’m also excited today is my rest day. I was definitely tired by the end.
Post-workout snuggles are always worth it.
I got some household stuff done, including laundry and meal prep for today, went grocery shopping, and then relaxed. Sunday’s always call for an early night when I have to work at 5am on Mondays!
Crush your week!
