This weekend I learned new things and tried new things.
Friday was low key per usual. I hate making Friday night plans. After a long week of work and early workouts, all I want come Friday at 5 pm are my sweatpants and my couch. It’s a date with myself. So I did just that, after visiting with my parents for an hour or so.
Saturday started bright and early with Ashley at the gym for a back and mini shoulder workout. We spied with our little eyes lots of gym hunks.
After the gym, I was more than ready for breakfast, and all I craved was a bowl of oatmeal! I tried making a protein sauce to put on top of my oatmeal. It was good, but I think I prefer just PB2 sprinkled on top. That or melted peanut butter.
After breakfast, I headed out to grab some groceries and hunt down the Chase Rice cd. Well, I struck out at 2 Targets and Newbury Comics. How is it possible that this cd is not in stock anywhere?!
And then it was back to my parent’s house, where I watched Aloha with Mom. If only it looked like that outside right now!
Saturday night = date night. For the first time that I can remember, I was actually looking forward to this date. I suggested Bartlett’s Pub in the Whole Foods. Weird, but it was cool! I’ve wanted to try the pub ever since I had a blogger tour before they opened.
Just when I was beginning to believe that no good men were left in the world, one walked in with flowers in hand. What?! A tall hunk with flowers for me?! As I walked by the lady eating at a high table, she mouthed, “that is so sweet and rare!” I know!!
I also tried new things. I’ve never been a wine girl, but I’m determined to get into it, which is partly why I recommended Bartlett’s Pub, since they only serve wine and craft beer. I had two glasses of Beaujolais Nouveau, and I’m not sure if it was the wine, the company, or a mix of both, but for hours I found myself genuinely laughing the night away.
Dang, okay that wine. I woke up not wanting to workout. That wine was good, good, good, but I definitely felt it the next morning. Knowing I had Ashley to meet, I put myself together for our workout, which turned out to be 10X better than I had expected it to be. Bi’s/tri’s and HIIT afterwards. Wine is now my officially pre-workout.A protein shake post workout, followed by a morning of meal prep, blogging and a check-in with my coach, before I dug into brunch. And finally, the 4th store proved victorious!
And then it was on to my best friend for life’ house to watch the AFC Championship game with Lisha, JJ and his friend Chris.
What did you do this weekend?
What’s the next CD that I need to buy?
