Happy Monday! I hope your weekend was as fun as mine was. Let’s start with Friday evening, shall we?
Oh my lanta! I had a date Friday evening and it was awful! It was so bad that I was desperately close to making a friend call for help and rescuing me. Turns out, Mark needed rescuing to, of a different kind, but he became my savior. There were checkpoints in downtown Manchester, and he needed a ride. He had been at the golf course, which is 10 minutes from his apartment, and didn’t want to risk anything after 2 beers. (I was proud!)
I took this opportunity to split asap and go help a friend in need. It was literally the perfect timing! How does that work?! 45 minutes later, I had the man, and since it was only 10, we decided to hang out since the night was so young. We are so in sync that when we were walking downtown to grab a drink, we both veered towards the entrance to The Farm without asking each other where we wanted to go.
3 beers and fried pickles (for him) later, and we were ready for our tab. And don’t worry, I didn’t drive home and risk hitting the checkpoints either. Girl has no time to be locked up! I was actually told during beer #2 that I wasn’t allowed to drive home. If a man that’s 6’2 and has a high tolerance won’t drive after 2 beers, he sure as hell wasn’t going to let his 2 beer queer friend drive home. Consequently I made the bartender bring me another one, especially since I was making Mark man the bill.
I started my morning at the gym around 10:30ish, and completed a 3 mile run on the treadmill before getting a leg workout in. I focused on squats and lunges on the bosu ball, and also included the kettlebell for a handful of exercises. I did something to my right hamstring Friday at the gym, and ever since, it’s been ridiculously tight and sore, so I did a lot of stretching during and after my workout.
The rest of the day was spent with my 2 cousins, Lindsay and Nikki. Lindsay lost a man she deeply loved Friday night, so Nikki and I spent the day and night with her.
We enjoyed the sun and talked and swam in the pool all day.
Family is so important to us, that it was a no brainer that our day be spent making sure Lindsay was okay. She is one of my biggest supporters, and it was time for me to focus my day and attention on her well-being. Lindsay, I love you!
After swimming, we headed over to where Nikki was dog sitting, and we spent the remainder of the night talking and eating. And raiding Nikki’s bag and painting our nails.
How fun is Sally Hansen “Fuzzy Coat?!” This is perfect for me because I always smudge or nick my nail polish when it’s not completely dry. Woof.
I woke up exhausted, and I think the Denver trip and lack of sleep the remainder of the week finally caught up to me. It didn’t help that the workout I did on my Friday lunch hour resulted in a tight right hamstring. It’s been so difficult to crouch down because of the tight hammi.
I started my morning off with a 3.5 mile run. I’ve really been enjoying cutting my weekly mileage down a good chunk. It’s allowed me to really get in quality strength workouts, which I’m loving!
After working out, I became domesticated and spent some time doing laundry, prepping meals, and grocery shopping.
I did stop for a little fun, and met my friend/coworker, Sean, at Livingston, where we walked and talked while enjoying fro-yo. No picture of any of this, I know, but I didn’t want to be the girl who was on her phone, but it was the best bowl of fro-yo ever! Cake batter and white chocolate covered oreo fro-yo, topped with rainbow jimmies, cheesecake bites, brownie bites, a sprinkle of crushed oreos, and whipped cream. Oh my god!
The rest of my night was spent relaxing with the roomies and reading the new book that my cousin Jenn encouraged me to pick up!
It Starts with Food. I’m so excited about this book and I’m really hoping I can implement a majority of the content!
This morning I got in a great 4 mile run before completing 2 rounds of the 7 minute workout. Then I just layed on the gym floor for 10 minutes sort of stretching and sort of just being a blob. Sometimes ya just gotta blob it up at the gym!
Have a good day friends! 🙂
What did you guys do this weekend?
What’s the best combo of fro-yo you’ve ever had?
