I had a very fun and busy weekend and can now sit, relax, and talk about it!
On Friday I went out with some girlfriends to my friends open house at her hair salon, and then out for drinks and dinner.
I got this book, which is right up my alley. I plan on throwing a lot of tea parties at my new house.
Saturday morning I lounged around (I know, real shocker) and did some lesson planning.
I used this as my day off because I really wanted to be lazy all day.
Saturday night my girlfriends and I went to “Hairball”- a band that plays all 80’s music. It was awesome.
On Sunday morning I made some “Food for Life” 7 Sprouted Grains bread with almond butter for breakfast and watched a few episodes of House Hunters…
I DID eventually bundle up to go out for a run. I wanted to run 6 miles, but it started snowing pretty hard around mile 2, so I turned around at 2.5 miles and got in a total of 5 miles at an average pace of 9:02.
It is quite common to run a little slower in the winter, mainly because you are dodging ice, running over snow, and freezing.
I wore this North Face vest over my Under Armor and stayed nice and toasty.
After my run I had a strawberry-spinach-banana-almond milk-chia seed smoothie.
I made a mix of veggie (broccoli, cauliflower, artichoke) and tofu stir-fry for lunch with lime juice- it was amazing. The beggar wanted some of course.
I finished my Sunday night by eating a whole cauliflower crust pizza and watching the Golden Globes. Morgan was at the Packers/Cowboys game so Charlie and I snuggled.
As for today… I am not running today because my left hip hurts (feels like I pinched a nerve), so that’s frustrating. I’m sure it’ll be back to normal by tomorrow.
I plan on doing upper body strength training and core work later tonight when Morgan gets home.
Some of my girl students told me I looked really “hip” today. Coming from 10-11 year olds, I take that as a compliment.
Have a great Monday night! I’ll probably make what I had for lunch yesterday because it was too amazing.
