First and foremost, thank you guys so much for all of your sweet, supportive comments on Friday’s post. While I am completely at peace and happy with my decision no matter what friends and family think, I have to admit I felt even more certain that I made the right choice after reading all of your encouraging comments. You guys are the best!
In typical Monday morning fashion, I figured I’d do a brief recap of my weekend, which was pretty low-key (I loved it!).
Matt and I had planned to go out with friends on Friday night, but when people started backing out at the last minute, we decided we were equally fine with staying in, pouring a couple drinks, and playing games. Any man that will challenge me to a Friends trivia game is a winner in my book.
(P.S. I won! )
We slept in on Saturday morning, and woke up for some breakfast. Matt wanted leftover pizza (typical man haha) but I didn’t think that’d go too well with coffee. Plus I had a craving for oatmeal, so I went with that instead.
We were lazy for a couple hours, then Matt had to leave and get his house ready for a party that night. After he left I decided to get a workout in, and completed the Strength 8 workout from Body Revolution. It was a tough one, and I am definitely feeling sore today because of it!
After I showered up and got ready, I needed to take advantage of the sale on active wear at Old Navy. It’s been all over the blog world, and I gotta say, great strategy Old Navy! Giving $50 gift cards to some major bloggers in return for a post… well played. I definitely spent a little more than 50 myself!
The selection was fantastic, they still had tons of inventory, so I’m hoping prices might go even lower after another month or so. I was in desperate need of some long sleeved workout tops, so I got three of those, some capri workout pants, and a short sleeve top (for only $5).
Oh and, an adorable necklace that was only $3! Impulse shopping, yes please.
I had plans to grab sushi for dinner with some friends that night, so I walked home (living within walking distance of the mall is amazing btw) and got ready for dinner.
Oh sushi, how I adore thee.
I slept in on Sunday morning again (I love sleeping in!), then had some coffee and breakfast. Once the caffeine hit me, I was ready to get a run in with my new workout gear. I also needed to try out my new iPhone armband I got for Christmas.
I absolutely loved the long sleeve workout top from Old Navy. It was about 50 degrees when I went for my run, and I was nice and toasty the whole time with this top. It was great! I also really loved this armband, it sticks well and doesn’t jiggle around too much while you run. The only thing I didn’t like is that there’s no hole to plug my headphones in. I might be putting it in wrong for all I know, but I just slid the headphones underneath and it worked fine. I can’t run without music!
My run was just okay. My knee started bothering me a little towards the end, and I am more than ready for my new running shoes to come in. Hopefully in the next couple days!
After my run (a little more than 3 miles) my muscles were tight and I really needed to stretch. Someone made that a bit more difficult though…
Imagine touching my toes with one hand, and giving a belly rub with the other haha. Oh Logan!
Next on my to-do list was a little grocery shopping to pick up some ingredients for a recipe I wanted to try.
I also needed a family size box of cocoa pebbles. Because I’m 5 years-old.
The new recipe I’m trying out is a crockpot recipe. My first one ever, I’m a little nervous! I’m planning on throwing everything into the crockpot before work on Monday morning, and coming home to a delicious smelling home cooked meal. To lessen my work in the morning, I pre-chopped all the veggies and browned the meat.
My new vegetable peeler I got for Christmas is the bomb dot com. Seriously made my life a bajillion times easier.
After prepping dinner it was time to get ready for the Pats game! I’m heading over to Matt’s to watch the game with some friends, but I can’t go empty handed…
So I whipped up some spinach and artichoke dip to take with me. I love this stuff, I hope everyone else likes it too.
I’m off to go watch this game, go Pats!
Questions: How was your weekend? What’s one food item you still occasionally buy from your childhood? Mine = cocoa pebbles!
