Good day fellow bloggers! I hope this Sunday finds you well and maybe recovering from a great run?!
This weekend has been pretty fun for me!
Friday I worked more OT, so when it was time to get off work – I was super excited/relieved. I didn’t get to the gym, but I did have friends and family over for my monthly Book Club. We enjoyed a yummy baked potato bar, great conversation, and many laughs. After most everyone left my cousins, my friend, and I talked about what its like to get older. Let me tell you – this is a blog post in the making. We were laughing so much that tears filled our eyes and our stomachs and faces ached. It was wonderful!
On Saturday I worked more overtime. Not my favorite thing to do on the weekends, but I am going to need extra money for Jacques care…even though I still haven’t decided what that will be. I headed out after work with the intention of doing lots of things, like a manicure/pedicure, haircut, and shopping. I went to one store, and ended up coming home – I was just so tired! I ended up taking a nap until it was time to get ready for Girls Night!
We were celebrating my friends birthday, so us girls got together and went to dinner at Red Robin.
Me and the Birthday Girl!
a bacon cheeseburger on a gluten Free bun!
cheers to good friends and birthdays!
They have gluten free items, and it tastes yummy! I indulged and got a white peach sangria – I think its my new favorite!
After dinner, we headed over to the theater to see Divergent. No, I have not read the book, it’s actually not the typical genre I would typically go for. But it was the birthday girls choice, so I happily went along.
I AM SO GLAD I SAW THIS MOVIE!
1.) it’s actually a good movie!
2.) Theo James.
That. Is. All.
This is almost unfair.
Pretty much, the highlight of my night…
I have actually ordered the book, and plan to read it as soon as it arrives. (I went with the paperback version because it was cheaper than the Ebook!)
We shared so many laughs last night, that again made my stomach and face hurt. It’s so worth it though. Because I have been struggling with my asthma, I was laughing so much that I needed my inhaler. Talk about feeling old! Ha.
This morning I woke up with a major headache, but after everything I ate yesterday I felt like I had to put my shoes on and do something. I went to the gym and managed 3.50 miles on the bike, and 4.48 on the treadmill.
I felt pretty good! And, I am so excited because I had negative splits throughout the run! I thought it was funny, because as I was running and sweating up a storm – a man actually smiled at me. He must have felt bad for me…because I looked close to death I am sure. Ha ha!
Side note : the more I wear my Mizuno Wave Inspire 9′s – the more I like them. I came home, again with the plans of getting things done and instead I took a shower put on my comfy pants and slept for 4 hours.
He took a nap too.
I am pretty sure at this point I am fighting off some sort of cold or something. I just feel exhausted. It has been really nice just being able to relax though, so It’s okay.
I am going to work on my training schedule for this week now, because I really need to get back on track. I was doing planks today and could only manage 30 seconds, when normally I can do 1 minute. My fitness levels are going down – no bueno!
Have a good week everyone.
PS I logged into Nike+ today and saw this
Per Nike, it was a 6 year anniversary. I remember my ex husband got me my first Nike+ sensor, which I ultimately lost… But my sister got me a new one which I still use! It wasn’t until 2010 that I started running consistently. But still – kinda cool that all these years later I’m still going.
