I am starting this Monday morning off with the biggest smile after such an amazing weekend. While I did have to say goodbye to my friend Sara, the rest of the weekend was extremely happy. It was a lovely weekend!
I got to enjoy some quality time with this bearded man. He took me into downtown Manchester to Muse Paint Bar, a fun little studio that gives lessons on painting. I went about a year ago with our Blog & Tweet NH group, but this was the first time I’ve gone with a date. If you’re local to the area and looking for a great date night, I highly recommend Muse!
We had a blast, and learned a lot about each other, such as the fact that he doesn’t follow directions and paints what he wants. After looking at that picture, I’m realizing that I am really short! I also went to my first CrossFit Saturday morning class in months, and I am so happy I crawled out of bed for it! I really love the ability to stay as long as I want and chat with those that I typically don’t see during the work week. It was a reminder of how much I love weekend mornings with my CrossFit teammates. The workout though, holy hell was it hard!
A lot of upper body work, which is great because upper body is my favorite to work. After all of that work, the running was the worst part of the workout since you were just so smoked to begin with. The humidity didn’t help either, but I was able to run pain free. The only pain came when I was stretching after and put pressure on the side of my toe.
After the workout, I had a productive morning and afternoon getting a lot of work done, both for the blog and for life. My goal is for this blog to grow, so I’m carving out extra time each day/week to see it become even better!
That afternoon, I headed to my friend Sara’s Dad’s house for her going away party with 5 other CrossFit friends. Sara’s moving to Texas for work, so we spent a few hours at the house hanging out with her one last time and chatting the afternoon away.
I’m going to miss this girl so much! I actually met Sara through our Blog & Tweet NH group, and our second time hanging out was at the Muse Paint Bar event (go figure!). Sara was the one who was able to convince me to join her CrossFit box, and I am so glad she did.
6:30 am classes with her were my favorite, and I am going to miss her spunky spirit so much!
The rest of my Saturday was spent running a few errands, making home made pizza, and vegging out in bed. A low key Saturday was so necessary.
Apparantly Saturday’s workout was a lot of lower body too, because I woke up at 7 with a lot of leg soreness. Knowing that I had nowhere I had to be, I went back to bed until 9. Clearly I needed rest!
After a greek yogurt with 1 tbsp of peanut butter, I headed out for my training run, which was sweaty but really good! I sprawled out on the deck post-run, and left a pretty fitting sweat imprint on the deck.
A productive Sunday of meal prepping, cleaning, and shamelessly reading and learning at Barnes & Noble followed.
What was the highlight of your weekend?
