Thursday night was awesome.
I got to go over to my cousin Lindze’s townhouse and hang out with her and her 3 week son, Lucas.
Her husband had a late night at work, so we had a girl’s night planned that Lucas crashed. At 3 weeks he’s already a ladie’s man. 😉
I love this little guy and his crazy head of hair. It’s so soft, and his toes. His toes!!! My favorite thing is finger holds. They melt my heart.
Even though Lucas had an accident that had Lindze and I in bouts of tears of laughter, I still have baby fever.
And no, Janine, I didn’t fart!
After baby snuggles and girl talk, I headed home to a big bowl of Arctic Zero ice cream. Half coffee and half vanilla maple, topped with Walden Farms chocolate syrup. Omg! the vanilla maple, omgomg! The chocolate syrup, holy crap I could have chugged that straight up!
My legs were dead, so my 3.5 mile run was brutal. Instead of going farther, I cut it short and decided to torture my legs even more with barbell squats and walking lunges. Beautiful pain.
I spent my rainy day inside at work, counting down the hours until 5:10, when I was meeting Lindsay at The Farm for the happiest of happy hours. We went for several reasons:
- celebrate her grad program ending
- celebrate my new job
- celebrate friday
- girl talk
- hit on the bartender
I had originally planned on making Friday my high-carb day (my coach Ashley makes me go high-carb every 7 days), but I ended up making it for today, since I knew I’d be going out for dinner tonight. I ended up working a beer into my macro schedule, and it worked out perfect. I even had enough left over for more Arctic Zero post-happy hour.
It was SO good. I then went to bed. At 8:30. I completely missed the Bruins game, but I was so exhausted, that it was necessary.
I woke up this morning ready to go at 7 am. After an early Friday night, it felt nice to wake up early and refreshed.
Since today is my high carb day, I started out my morning with 2 Van’s Flax Whole Wheat waffles, topped with syrup and 1/2 a banana.
These are hands down the best waffles I’ve ever had. I have no idea what it is about them, but they are easily going to make an appearance of every high-carb day.
I spent the next hour and a half watching HIMYM, before venturing over to the gym. I started off with a half mile walk to loosen my sore legs up, and then ran 3 miles, before tackling an arm and core workout, before finishing up with a 1 mile run. Such a great workout!
A little bit later, I devoured a bowl pb banana oatmeal. 1 tbsp of pb is not enough!
Hope you all have a great Saturday! 🙂
