Happy Monday love bugs! Another great weekend in the books, and I have a fun week ahead of me! This weekend was spent with some of my favorite people.
Jen made Lisha hold her utensils while she photographed her food. I love friends who take pictures of their food. It makes me feel normal. The lighting is so bad, but there’s Lisha holding Jenny’s knife and fork, right in front of her face.
The girls ordered a dessert to share, and it was complete torture watching them eat a chocolate cake, filled with chocolate fudge, drizzled in chocolate sauce, and topped with gelato. Damn Paleo challenge! They asked me to dip my finger in the sauce and try it, saying no one would ever know if I didn’t note it in my food log for my coach. I stayed strong, even when Lisha tried to get me to smell a bite of it.
Best friends since high school. We hadn’t seen Lisha in the longest time, but it felt like only 3 days had passed. That’s what a true friendship is like. We just sat there for about 3 1/2 hours talking about work, guys, and life in general.
After mobility, I headed to the gym to run. I found this really awesome app on the treadmill I was on that allowed me to run through different countries. I ran 4 of the quickest and easiest miles through New Zealand.
The tour brings you through mountains, cities, residential areas, etc, as you get history lessons at each point. The people talk and yell at you, and when you run by them, you realize that they are REAL. As in someone was actually walking/running when creating the content for the app. SO cool! I’m definitely so excited to use these treadmills when I have to run inside. It ignited my travel bug.
This is the book that you need to read. It’s about a married couple who both don’t want kids and then one has a change of heart. The entire book makes you wonder if true love will conquer all. SO good!Saturday night I got to spend with Utah. While the rest of New England was watching the Patriots game, Utah and I went and saw The Secret Life of Walter Mitty (yay for a guy who doesn’t like football!). The movie was AWESOME, and after the movie, we both commented on how we wanted to travel asap. I’d see the movie again in a heartbeat. Highly recommended!!
After the movie, we headed to the TapHouse, where the game was still on, but we were those people at the bar just talking the night away. The restaurant was getting really loud from the game, so we headed out and drove around town for another hour talking the night away. Amazing night.
Sunday was a relaxing day for me. I enjoyed a lazy start to my day before grabbing groceries for the week. Around noon I headed out for a 3 mile run to take advantage of the 45 degree heat wave.
How was your weekend? Any movies you want to see?
