Weekend Rewind

Why did the weekend have to end? Ever? Sigh… I think someone’s got a case of the Mondays…

Instead of being bummed about sitting in my cubicle for the next 5 days, I think I’d like to re-live some weekend fun. Thursday, Kev and I celebrated IPA Day with friends. Friday, we grilled out with neighbors. Mmmm… burgers. Saturday, we had a date day. I know you all are probably familiar with “date nights,” but this was sort of an extended version.

We started with some of this:

And continued with this:


The lake was so calm!

Then we got cleaned up like twins (I promise I had on a cute skirt and didn’t totally bum it):

And we ordered some of this:

pizza n' beer

I had an Old Hickory Hefe with my pizza. I do not recommend it. I also wasn’t all that crazy about my pizza (caramelized onion, prosciutto, and kalamata olives – thought it would have been better). What I did like – the restaurant had half-pints of beer. I got to try 2 beers but only had the quantity of one. Score! Kev liked his pizza:

shrimp on pizza?  ewww

So to make up for pizza mediocrity, I stopped here on the way home.

Kev doesn’t eat sweets, so he didn’t get any frozen yogurt. I used to feel like a fat kid when he made me get ice cream alone… I got over it.

Last but not least, I defied my podiatrist’s orders Sunday. A girl can’t wear sneakers to church ya’ know!

So that was the weekend in a nutshell. I hope this upcoming weekend is a little healthier. Couldn’t be toooo much worse, right? ūüôā Stay tuned this week, I’m starting a new workout and have a new lunch bowl recipe.

What was the best thing you did this weekend?

I’m Not Hip

You guys probably figured out I’m not too hip, but this really isn’t about my lack of trendiness. ¬†Nope, it’s actually about my hip. ¬†It hurts. ¬†I was so pumped to run 4-5 miles today with music, thanks to the new armband I received earlier this week. ¬†When I got out of bed though, all I could think was OuOuOuOuch! ¬†I think my IT band might be super tight from biking yesterday at the gym, but I’m not actually sure what it is. ¬†All I know is that my right hip hurts, and if I run, I will hurt it worse.

Therefore, I had a wee bit of cereal with almond milk, some plain coffee, and a purple monster to drown my sorrows. ¬†By the way, when I say “plain” coffee, I mean “black” coffee. ¬†When I went up North (*gasp*) and asked for plain coffee, the guy almost put creamer or something in it. ¬†I was like, woah woah woah! ¬†I said plain buddy! ¬†Then as I complained to Kevin (the resident yankee), he informed me that in some areas of the country, plain is not synonomous with black. ¬†Really? ¬†Can anyone explain to me what else plain could mean? ¬†Sugar, cream, milk, D – all of the above??? ¬†Just curious.


I like black coffee and bright mornings!

I think I’ll probably do a little pilates or light yoga to stretch things out in hopes of getting that run in tomorrow morning instead. ¬†We have two of Kevin’s college roomies staying at our house this weekend. ¬†Because the boys stayed up late polishing off a bottle of whiskey and a few beers, they are still in bed. ¬†I should have plenty of time to get in some downward facing dog or other awkward poses before any guests come downstairs. ¬†Oh, and did I mention I hated whiskey? ¬†I tried to clean up the kitchen a bit this morning, and just smelling that stuff made me nautious. ¬†Oh well – not everything’s for everyone, right?

For anyone who is interested, I do Denise Austin pilates/yoga, my own blend of routine/stretches, or easy workouts from Exercise TV’s website. ¬†Here is a link to a good pilates one, and here is a link to a good yoga one. ¬†I might do something lighter than those today, but they’re pretty good.

You know what else is good? ¬†Water pilates! ¬†(Yep, when the boys finally wake from their slumber, we’ll be hitting the lake again. ¬†Woohoo!)

A+ Saturday

Yesterday consisted of running, shopping, and boating. ¬†In summary, I’d say it was another A+ Saturday. ¬†I started with a 4-mile run on a new trail. ¬†It’s not far from the house, but I don’t generally drive to run. ¬†I completed the run in 33 minutes, and I’d like to thank a random jogger for my success. ¬†Halfway through the run, he gave me a thumbs up instead of the general head nod, wave, or “hello.” ¬†For whatever goofy reason, it perked me up and gave me a little turbo boost. ¬†Thumbs up, Champ!

After the run, I stopped by the farmer’s market. ¬†Kale, cabbage and 3 lbs of local, natural pork. ¬†I ¬†see a crock pot dinner in the near future! ¬†Upon arriving home, I made a purple monster. ¬†I got the idea for monster’s from Angela’s Green Monster Movement. ¬†They look gross unique, but they’re amazing. ¬†You don’t even taste the greens.



  • 3/4 cup unsweetened almond milk (or milk of choice)
  • 1 cup frozen raspberries
  • 2 handfuls of fresh spinach
  • Almost 1 full scoop of all-natural vanilla soy protein powder

Cleo Wants Smoothie; I Need Shower

Whirl it up in a blender or food process and BAM! ¬†There’s breakfast! ¬†(I guess it’s really breakfast number two given I had that pre-run Larabar.) ¬†I generally prefer to have a frozen banana and some ground flax in there, but there’s always tomorrow!

Fun in the Sun

Boating fun and grilling out with friends made for a great day off from work!
What are your favorite lazy day activities?
