Hey all–hope you all had a good weekend! We had a cozy, rainy one here that was much more relaxing than the rest of the week.
Doug took Friday off so I could get a bit of a break since I was going a little crazy thanks to our hectic week.
We met up for a bit to pick out our new bathroom vanity, but other than that I was on my own, mostly running errands. If you have kids, you know that running errands without them is pretty much a vacation.
I also enjoyed a leisurely lunch out at FreeBirds and a coffee from Philz.
That salad gives Chipotle a run for their money and Philz chai tea with fresh mint and cardamom was perfect for the weather. (You may have seen these pictures before over on Instagram, but if you haven’t, come follow me!)
We had some fun on Saturday, taking the kids to a movie, which was Emme’s first one in a theater. As rambunctious as she is, rarely sitting through a whole movie at home, we weren’t sure how she’d do, but she sat still and quiet the whole time, happily munching on popcorn and M&Ms.
Other than that, it was a pretty laid back weekend. The only other thing of note is that we didn’t have any meat in the house for dinner Sunday night, so we cooked up some eggs and had them dinner-style over a mix of roasted regular and sweet potatoes with a side of green beans and broccolini. The kids were a little surprised to see eggs on their plates for dinner!
Those kids were also bouncing off the walls by the end of the weekend after so much time inside, so I’ll have to find a good way for them to release some energy with the continuing rain.
Here’s what it looked like:
Monday: Strength/Flexibility – Teach Pilates
Tuesday: Strength/Flexibility + Cardio – Teach Pilates + 30 min steady state hybrid stationary bike
Wednesday: Strength/Flexibility – Teach Pilates
Thursday: Strength/Flexibility – Teach Pilates
Friday: Strength/Flexibility – Teach Pilates
Saturday: Cardio – 4 mile treadmill run (Calorie-blasting treadmill run + steady)
Sunday: Strength – BodyPump
The fun thing about the gym this weekend was that Doug joined the Y with me. He’s gone a few times as a guest, but usually sticks with cycling and at-home workouts. With the rain this weekend, he decided to get his cardio in at the gym in a cycling class. The kids thought it was fun having him there for kids club drop off/pickup and I’m looking forward to having him come more often on these rainy days.
Have a great start to your week!
Do you and your significant other go to the gym together?
