I’m pretty sure the jet lag I was supposed to have last week has FINALLY caught up with me today. I am exhausted and probably could have gone to sleep 2 hours ago, so forgive me if this post is incoherent.
This weekend was nice – lots of family time AND friend time. I don’t remember what I did on Friday, but I apparently I emailed Paula this picture — so it wasn’t a complete waste.
I guess we really partied hard.
Saturday B had soccer and after we got to hang out with some sandhill cranes (soon after this picture was taken the daddy (mama?) bird almost went after B!). They are not afraid of people or charging at them!
And then he headed to the gym so I could log some miles. I just COULD NOT get out of bed Saturday to run. Excuses, excuses I know. I wanted to do 8 miles, but given my time I only squeezed in 5. Lame.
We lunched at Davis Bakery. It was good, as usual.
and then I drove the kids out to my dad’s place at the beach where they had a sleepover… and we had a date night!
Well, it was kinda a date night — it was actually a going away dinner for my psuedo-twin, gym, coffee, Target buddy – Heather.
She is moving to the great state of Pennsyvania with her boyfriend, Marc. Yay! but boo
We ate dinner at Hillstone — and OF COURSE, I had to get the veggie burger (I also convinced everyone at my table to get it too – I think they were pleasantly surprised).
After dinner we watched the sun set, acted a little silly, and said our goodbyes and good lucks! I’m going to miss that girl
There might have been a nightcap margarita on the way home — hey we were child free!!
But don’t worry — today we paid for it. We left the house at 7:30am to get the kids No sleeping in for us!
We did get to relax a little today — well, at least Dan did.
This afternoon we hit the gym for spin (gah, I wanted to die, it was a HARD class!) and a quick run. And while the boys went to the movies – the girls went food shopping (that’s equal, right?). This, of course, means our life has COMPLETELY returned to normal. Yes!
So without further adieu our menu…
- Pasta and marinara sauce
- Grilled cheese and avocado sandwiches
- Chicken, sweet potatoes & cauliflower vindaloo
- Bruschetta salad
- Lemony chicken with grilled zucchini and yellow squash
- Broiled steak and veggies
- Avocado lemon quinoa (or maybe couscous) with chickpeas and shrimp
And for my workouts…well, I need to stop SLACKING OFF and step it up. This means an extra workout tomorrow and some upper body work. No more excuses!
- M – 3-mile run
- T – 5 mile run
- W – Spin + 2 mile run
- Thursday – 3 miles + Upper Body Work
- Friday – Spin
- Saturday – 8-10 miles
- Sunday – Spin + 3 mile run
