Hello friends, happy Monday… if Monday’s can be happy. With warm weather finally here, I’m really excited for all of the fun things I get to do on weekends again.
Friday was a pretty low key day with no pictures taken of the night. I wasn’t feeling the best, so it was just a lazy night of watching tv, so let’s jump to the actual weekend!
Saturday started off by sleeping in until 8:15. I was still feeling pretty tired, but I immediately ate half of a Larabar Uber bar to give my body carbs in preparation for my 2nd run outside! Aside from the 2 mile race I had several weekends ago, this is actually my first training run outside. When I woke up it was already 50 degrees outside with slight wind, which made it almost the perfect running weather.
While allowing my body to wake up before running, I played around on my computer while watching Keeping Up With The Kardashians. <– I love guilty pleasures!
Since there was slight wind, I decided this was a perfect run to wear my new running jacket! Wow, could my eyes get any larger?!
Okay, so this run I started off starving and didn’t bring water. Total mistake because I definitely started cramping around the 3rd mile, and the last mile was a struggle. Can we also talk about the insane wind?! Even though my pace was a lot slower than it should be, I’m happy with this run! Aside from my race a few weekends ago, this was my first run outside since last fall, so my body is getting used to outdoor elements, such as wind, hills, etc.
After my run, I stretched, foam rolled and did abs, before showering and grabbing food. I had wanted a tuna wrap, but because I literally eat tuna Monday-Friday, I try to not eat it on the weekend. Hello Mercury! Eggs and a Thin Slim bagel. I topped it with cream cheese after this picture because I was so hungry!
Early afternoon my Mom and I headed out for a little shopping trip! New lace top and tank top for my last birthday gift from my parents. LOVE this! American Eagle if you want to be my twin! 🙂
That run really took a lot out of me, so by the time I was home from shopping, I was famished. I whipped up a batch of blueberry protein pancakes, which I ate while chatting with my parents. The rest of the day was spent running errands, cooking burgers which totally made me sick all night, and watching Game of Thrones! <– new binge show!
Sunday started off early around 8. I changed, ate half of a Larabar bar, and grabbed my pre-workout to drink while driving to the gym. I started with a 1 mile warm-up run, before tackling legs and half of shoulders. There was a girl taking up the entire space which annoyed me, so I decided to call it a day. Made a protein shake in the car before grabbing some food to grill for dinner.
After a shower, I whipped up a batch of pancakes and threw in strawberries and blueberries that I needed to use up.
The rest of Sunday was spent shopping, grilling, and playing football in the front yard. Another fabulous weekend in the books!
