Hey! What’s up?
I am glad to say that I actually had a very relaxing weekend for the first time in a long while. The past couple of weekends have been jam-packed and I just haven’t felt “with it” lately. But this weekend was a great mix of downtime and socializing that left me feeling recharged.
Friday night we stayed in and had leftovers. Crazy, I know. But we really just needed some downtime after a crazy week.
Saturday we did our 18 mile long run, and I’m happy to report that went very well too. More deets on tomorrow’s fitness post. After that, we went to dinner with some friends and definitely ate back some calories with these crazy burgers from Boston Burger Company.
I got the “Hot Mess” burger, which had American cheese, pickles, jalapenos, sweet potato fries, thousand island dressing, and lettuce.
It was so good, and yes, it was a mess!
Hubby got the “Bee Hive,” which was stacked with onion rings covered in barbecue sauce.
Yum! It was really tasty and I’m definitely going back, but all our burgers were not cooked how we ordered.
After dinner, we saw Divergent. I actually didn’t really know we were seeing it because my husband picked the movie.
It was so good. Like, I loved it. And I never really love movies. And now I just regret now reading the book first. And I think I have to get my hands on this series…
Sunday was a good mix of busy but productive with some down time too. We went to church, then had some of our Bible study friends over for lunch in the afternoon. After that, we ran some errands and got some cookies on the way back.
We didn’t go out for dessert after dinner, and after running 18 miles, I wanted my dessert! Got a snickerdoodle and chocolate chip cookie from my fave bakery up the street. Good, but nothing amazing. I’ll stick to pastries from there next time.
This Week’s Schedule
Normally, I wouldn’t run anyone through my weekly schedule, but since this week is particularly packed, I just wanted to write this out for my own sake so I know what’s going on.
Monday: Rest day, work, dinner with some church girl friends
Tuesday: AM workout, work, Bible study
Wednesday: work, run after work (unless it snows?!), chill at home?
Thursday: AM workout, work, catch up on blog’s/blog prep
Friday: rest day, work, early birthday dinner with some work friends
Saturday: coffee date, rest up before race day
Sunday: 20 mile race!
And somewhere in there, I need to seriously meal plan and go grocery shopping. Not really sure when I can make time for that…
I really want to eat clean this week in preparation for the race. So, that’s my busy week. I was kind of having mini panic attacks about it last week, but writing it out and seeing my schedule really helps most that anxiety go away.
Here’s to a good week!
