Hi hi my friends! Are you all in a Easter candy coma today? I actually behaved yesterday, which I am 1) proud of myself 2) surprised with myself (fat kid for life!), and happy that I feel great today! Anytime I’m at a family event with my aunt’s infamous dessert mix, I 1) always binge on the entire bucket of mix, 2) feel awful and disgusting, and 3) get mad at myself for not having enough self-control to only have a little bit.
So yes, today I’m feeling fabulous, because I listened to my body being full from dinner and opted out of desserts.
My parents were actually gone for an ultra-long weekend to head to PA to spend the Easter weekend with my brother, Chels, and her parents. Since I couldn’t afford to take 2 days off from work (I’m super busy these days in my job), I stayed home with Kip.
Friday night was a lazy one over here. It included chicken stir-fry for dinner, an evening walk followed by basketball, and then several hours of Dexter. It was the perfect lazy Friday night!
Saturday started with a cat and dog in my bed and no room to move. Since I couldn’t fall asleep until late on Friday, when my alarm went off at 7 am, I reset it to 8, and took advantage of an extra hour of sleep.
After taking care of animal duties, I downed 1/2 of a mini Laraba Uber Roasted Nut Roll, 1/3 of a Fuel for Fire, and headed out the door to go to the gym.
The workout was a run & leg day… basically a workout that would destroy my legs. I was aiming for 3-4 miles, really wanting the 4 miles, but by 3.6 miles, I was toast. The run felt so great though, and I think if the gym didn’t feel like a sauna, that I could’ve gotten 4+ miles in, but extreme heat can seriously screw you over! I decided to end the run and not be stubborn to get 4, and headed to the ladie’s gym to do legs. I left tired, starving and in dire need of a shower!
After a shower, I got started on cleaning the bathrooms, doing a load of laundry, and then got to town on deep cleaning the fridge. Anyone else find cleaning to be calming and a stress-reliever? Kip monitored me, making sure I didn’t miss a spot.
And for being a good supervisor, Kippy got a lot of frisbee time! Whyyyyy is there still snow?!
From about noon until 3:30 I continued on with cleaning, blog work, and other productive activities before it was time for an epic Trader Joe’s/Whole Foods trip!
Pancakes for dinner and finished Dexter. Like it’s over. All 8 seasons. The ending I cannot handle!
After a good amount of sleep but still not feeling fully rested, I had 1/2 yogurt with 1/2 a banana before heading to the gym for a very lame workout.
After the “gym,” I took Kip for a 40 minute walk before showering, eating a tuna wrap, and checking out what the Easter bunny brought me. Good job Mr. Bunny!
New Easter nails!
After our dinner, I played Mr. Potato Head.
And took long-overdue pictures with my cuzzo <3
And then it was home to relax and get ready for Monday!
What did you do for Easter?
