My weekend is beginning with Friday… because my Friday was awesome too and needs to be included in the “wonderfulness” of my weekend recap 🙂
**I will send these out in 2 parts because I don’t want to overload you with the worlds longest post!
-I skipped on Yoga and instead did some stretching, rolling, and body-weight activities like situps, pushups, bridges, squats, etc.
-After a perfect little “light” workout, I did a spontaneous thing and went SHOPPING!! I never do that… and I went to the greatest store I know– REI. Do you guys have an REI? I had a 100$ gift card from my aunt and I took full advantage! For literally 3 years I have been looking at a new fleece type jacket. They good brands are so expensive and even when I would online shop and find them on sale (like 150$ instead of 250$….YIKES!) I just couldn’t bring myself to buy it. But Friday… Friday I was brave! I found a Mountain Hard Wear Jacket on sale for 111$… and I BOUGHT IT!! Felt great!
-My mom and I then spent the next 5 hours at my grandma’s country club (the extremely classy/proper/posh grandmother one from the classy dinner party last week). It was fantastic and sunny and so super relaxing! On top of it, I was able to finally get a swim in for my semi-training for the Olympic Tri I have in a few weeks! I thought I would die… but the more I swam the better I felt! The Olympic Tri distance is 1500 meters, so just to be sure that I could “do it” I swam for 2000 meters. It took me 31 minutes. I don’t know if that is good/bad/normal/slow/fast whatever… it is what it is!
-On the way home my mom and I stopped at my other favorite place– Costco!! Got some goodies… didn’t really “need” any of it… but it would be wrong to leave Costco and not buy things. Apples, Frozen Mixed Berries, Organic Tortilla Chips, Kashi Go Lean Crunch, and new cereal Tupperware!
-I finished up the evening painting the porch (yes, still more coats) and fixing an AWESOME dinner put together entirely by me!! Spaghetti squash, grilled chicken, brown rice, peppers, onions, mushrooms, Brussel sprouts, broccoli, and tomato sauce! Followed of course by some frozen yogurt/ice cream!
Have a great rest of your Day!!!
